Biden Claims He Was VP During Pandemic In Detroit Gaffe

 May 22, 2024

President Joe Biden's recent gaffe has raised eyebrows and sparked concerns among voters.

The President mistakenly claimed he was vice president during the pandemic and that former President Barack Obama sent him to Detroit to help fix the situation.

Breitbart News reported that President Joe Biden made a significant gaffe during a dinner hosted by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) in Detroit.

He incorrectly stated that he was vice president during the COVID-19 pandemic and was directed by former President Barack Obama to assist Detroit during this crisis. This statement is historically inaccurate, as Biden's vice presidency concluded in January 2017, well before the pandemic's onset in March 2020.

Exploring the Implications of Biden's Public Remarks

The impact of such statements is not trivial, considering the political and social climate. A recent Harvard-Harris poll highlights growing concerns among the electorate regarding Biden's public lapses.

The poll, conducted among 1,660 registered voters, reveals that 63% believe these lapses are becoming more frequent, raising questions about the potential implications for his presidency.

In contrast, 37% of the poll respondents feel that Biden's lapses are becoming less frequent. However, the broader concern highlighted by the poll is whether such lapses, related to age or cognitive health, pose a danger to national leadership. A majority of 59% expressed that electing a president with such issues could be dangerous, reflecting significant apprehension about leadership stability.

Public Perception and Electoral Consequences

This isn't the first time Biden's public statements have caused confusion. Another instance captured in a White House YouTube video shows Biden attempting to assertively engage with Chinese President Xi Jinping, only to confuse viewers. These incidents collectively contribute to a narrative that could influence voter perception and confidence.

President Joe Biden's misstatement not only revises historical facts but also inadvertently casts doubt on his awareness and recall capabilities. This aspect is increasingly scrutinized as he continues in office.

And when I was vice president, things were kinda bad during the pandemic, and what happened was Barack said to me, 'Go to Detroit and help fix it!'

The recent Harvard-Harris poll further delves into the electorate's views on the potential dangers of presidential lapses. While 41% of respondents, predominantly Democrats, argue that such fears are exaggerated for political reasons, the majority concern remains potent and could influence upcoming electoral cycles.

Conclusion: Reflecting on Presidential Gaffes and Public Trust

President Joe Biden's recent gaffe at the NAACP dinner in Detroit has stirred discussions on the accuracy of his public statements and their implications. His incorrect claim about his vice presidency during the pandemic and the assertion that he was sent to "fix" Detroit by Barack Obama contradicts known historical timelines.

Such lapses, highlighted by recent polling data, suggest a growing concern among voters about Biden's fitness for office. The poll results reflect a divided opinion, with a significant portion of the electorate viewing these lapses as potentially dangerous. As Biden continues to navigate his presidency, the frequency and nature of these public lapses could play a critical role in shaping public perception and trust.
