Joe Biden is the king of gaffes
Current president Joe Biden has increasing difficulty forming his thoughts into sentences. This advancing difficulty expressing himself isn’t a new thing for Joe though. Our 46th president actually has an entire career of putting his foot in his own mouth. The following list is made up of real Joe Biden quotes that actually came out of his mouth. There are literally 100’s to chose from these are just my own personal top 10.

Joe on raising kids

Joe on who to vote for
“You’re the ones who sent Barack Obama the presidency. And I have a simple proposition here: I’m here to ask you for your help. Where I come from, you don’t go very far unless you ask. My name’s Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over. If you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden. Give me a look though, okay?”Biden accidentally tells South Carolina crowd he’s a Dem candidate ‘for the United States Senate’ forgetting what office he’s running for
Joe on roaches?!?
“And by the way, you know, I’d sit on the stand and it’d get hot. I got hairy legs that turn blonde in the sun. The kids used to come up and reach into the pool and rub my leg down, so it was straight and watch the hair come back up again. They’d look at it. So, I learned about roaches and I learned about kids jumping on my lap. And I loved kids jumping on my lap.”At the founding of the Joseph R. Biden Jr. Aquatic Center in September 2020
Joe on his health
“You know, as we used to say in the Senate, excuse the point of personal privilege here: I had two cranial aneurysms, and they literally had to take the top of my head off.
