During an interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” Joe Biden made a mistake much too large for even his campaign to ignore.
The Democratic presidential nominee claimed that the government could provide four-year college educations for $150 billion. His campaign later admitted that Sleepy Joe was off by quite a bit, putting the real figure closer to double that.
Biden bragged about the number as a feature of proposed “significant institutional changes” that would include a 15% minimum tax on corporations, saying it would raise more than $400 billion.
“I can send every single qualified person to a four-year college in their state for $150 billion,” Biden said. “I can make sure every single person who qualifies for community college can go and we still have a lotta money left over. That’s what I mean by significant institutional changes.”
That’s where Biden’s team had to step in and correct this flat-out lie.
“After our interview, Mr. Biden’s staff told us he misspoke, and that the cost of free public college could be twice as much as he said,” CBS’ Norah O’Donnell said in a voice-over after Biden’s claim aired.
“60 Minutes” noted that organizations like the Tax Policy Center have questioned the validity of Biden’s claims that the corporate tax would raise that much money.
The stress of running for president seems to be eating away at what’s left of senile old Joe’s mind as his verbal blunders and gaffes seem to be becoming more and more common.
At an event on Sunday, Joe Biden seemingly forgot who he was running against – claiming that George Bush was his opponent before his wife who was sitting alongside him, softly said Trump to remind him.
“Not because I’m running, but because who I’m running against, this is the most consequential election in a long, long, long time,” Biden said. “And the character of the country in my view is literally on the ballot. What kind of country we’re gonna be? Four more years of George, ah, George… gonna find ourselves in a position where if Trump gets elected we’re going to be in a different world.”
President Trump reacted to that incident saying, “Joe Biden called me George yesterday. Couldn’t remember my name. Got some help from the anchor to get him through the interview. The Fake News Cartel is working overtime to cover it up!”
Biden’s decaying mental condition is not going unnoticed amongst potential voters.
A new Rasmussen daily White House Watch poll revealed that President Trump has charged out ahead of his Democratic opponent.
“The latest national telephone and online survey finds Trump edging Democrat Joe Biden 48% to 47% among Likely U.S. Voters. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, while two percent (2%) remain undecided.”
“Last Wednesday, Biden held a 49% to 46% lead, but the race has been tightening since early in the month. This is the first time Trump has been ahead since mid-September.”
This marks a massive four point swing in one week for President Trump.
Rasmussen also reported that the president holds a 52% approval rating. By comparison, Barrack Obama was at 48% at this point in 2012 before easily being reelected.
