The never-ending gaffe machine known as Joe Biden seems constantly confused about where he is and what he is doing — and Wednesday night’s Democratic debate was no different.
Quid Pro Quo Joe had perhaps his worst stumble yet when he was forced to defend his support among black voters. The former vice president claimed at one point to have the endorsement of the “only African-American woman” ever elected to the U.S. Senate, oblivious to the obvious fact that Kamala Harris, a senator from California, was on the same stage with him.
Biden’s gaffe factory kicked into high gear after Cory Booker singled out the 77-year-old politician for recently saying he was against marijuana legalization and for reportedly using a focus group to gauge his support among black voters.
Watch Crazy Uncle Joe’s latest gaffe unfold below:
“I’m part of that Obama coalition. I come out of a black community in terms of my support,” he said. “If you notice I have more people supporting me in the black community that have announced for me, because they know me, they know who I am. Three former chairs of the [Congressional] Black Caucus, the only African-American woman that had ever been elected to the Senate a whole range of people …”
Booker looked about as confused by Crazy Uncle Joe’s statement as everyone at home watching must have been.
“No, that’s not true, the other one is here …” Harris said, earning laughter from the audience.
