The best thing about Joe Biden is the entertain he provides because he’s so prone to making gaffes. If you watched the latest Democrat debate, Biden stumbled quite a bit, botching parts of this closing statement. In the aftermath of the recent shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, Biden referred to “the tragic events in Houston today and also in Michigan the day before.” Oops.
His latest gaffe occurred during a campaign stop in Iowa earlier this week when he told supporters “we choose truth over facts,” in reference to the Democratic Party.
The best part is how the crowd cheers in response to that line. Honestly, I don’t think this was a gaffe at all, but rather, a moment of honesty. Democrats have been advocating policies based on their “truth” and not the objective facts as long as I can remember. In fact, Biden could have said “we choose feelings over facts,” and it would have been just as accurate.
