With 8 days left until Election Day, Vice President Joe Biden is still having trouble remembering exactly who he's running against.
It's definitely not the first time this has happened, but during a critical opportunity to appeal to young voters from the safety of his basement (Joe and Dr. Jill Biden were making a brief appearance during the "I Will Vote" livestream) Biden stumbled and appeared to forget President Trump's name, awkwardly referring to him as "my opponent" before stammering out "George Bush".
Amusingly, after the stumble, Dr. Jill nudges him and whispers "Trump" as her husband stammers.
Today, Joe Biden thought he was running against George Bush... for real.— Tim Young (@TimRunsHisMouth) October 26, 2020
The embarrassing episode occurred just a day after Biden claimed that he had assembled "the greatest voter fraud organization" in history. Of course, Democrats just shrugged this off as another example of "Biden being Biden."
IDC if he’s running against George Jetson I’m voting for him🤣🤣🤣— Michael A Murdock (@MichaelAMurdoc1) October 26, 2020
Because we all know who will really be in charge if Biden triumphs over President Trump on Election Day.
This is the joy that so triggered Peggy Noonan that she wrote a column about how Senator Harris comes off as “insubstantial, frivolous.”— African American Policy Forum (@AAPolicyForum) October 25, 2020

For the record, here's that Peggy Noonan column.
