At some point, Joe Biden’s constant flubs and brain-farts are going to become more sad than funny. As we get closer to Election Day, it’ll seem cruel and heartless to laugh at this helpless old man. He blew the chance of a lifetime and let Hillary intimidate him out of running in 2016, and now he’s just a senescent afterthought. One day I won’t find any humor in it. But today is not that day.
Joe Biden forgot the prime minister of the United Kingdom’s name after touting his foreign policy knowledge.
“I don’t know the new prime minister of England. He looks like Donald Trump, I know that,” the former vice president said at a town hall hosted by Clinton College… Biden claimed he was the only Democratic president candidate with relationships with foreign leaders.
To be fair, that last part is true. Joe has a terrific relationship with Margaret Thatcher, or whatever her name is.
And in all fairness, Boris Johnson does bear a passing resemblance to Trump, if Trump had a much less elaborate hairstyle. Messy Trump, maybe that could be how Biden remembers him.
It’s not just because Johnson is new at the job, either. Yesterday, Joe couldn’t even remember the name of the guy he served under for eight years:

Let’s hear it for President MyBoss. At least Joe didn’t say Obama was that “clean and articulate” guy this time.
As Joe loses touch with reality, his delusions are getting stronger. And stranger:
“In the space of 3 minutes, Biden got the time period, the location, the heroic act, the type of medal, the military branch and the rank of the recipient wrong, as well as his own role…” Excellent WaPo debunking of a Biden tale that keeps getting wilder: https://t.co/QttNxxkmTR

Can’t somebody please help Joe Biden? Parading him around in public like this isn’t doing anybody any good. Is this a presidential campaign or the world’s biggest case of elder abuse?
