How Progressive is Joe Biden? He's Already Living 200 Years into the Future

“Joe Biden’s Latest Gaffe Is As Stupid As You Might Imagine,” Jerome Hudson writes at the Daily Surge. Hudson adds that Joe’s gaffe “was served up during his remarks today at the United States Africa Leaders Summit:”

Now if you thought that one of his senior staffers would’ve taken the time to educate Joe Biden on the differences between nations, countries, and continents, before putting him in front of a microphone, you’d be wrong.

​”There’s no reason the nation of Africa cannot and should not join the ranks of the world’s most prosperous nations in the near term, in the decades ahead,” the vice president of the United States of America said.

“There is simply no reason,” he said.

Actually, I think what we’re seeing here is Joe Biden, Super-Trekkie. Let’s assume he’s seen Star Trek in at least one of its many forms; perhaps he’s read all of the “Making of” books and Websites. If so, Joe knows that in two centuries, Lt. Uhura will be born in the “United States of Africa” — it’s just a matter of time. Like the jurist who wore her Star Trek uniform to Bill Clinton’s Whitewater trial, why not live the futuristic Federation dream now?

Live Long and Prosper, Admiral Biden. Live Long and Prosper.
