I don’t have to tell you that Joe Biden has a habit of embarrassing himself. You can’t really trust what is about to come out of his mouth. Nor can he. For years, he’s made a mess of things with his gaffes, idiotic jokes, and straight-up bizarre comments.
These days, it seems Biden gets himself into trouble every day when he speaks. Most of the time, his slip-ups shed light on his failing cognitive health. This time, however, he seemed to let slip something very private, related to a former president. And it has upset plenty of folks.
From Fox News:
Carter, whose health is waning and has been placed on hospice care at his home, instructed Biden to deliver his eulogy, the president revealed during a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in Rancho Santa Fe, California.
“He asked me to do his eulogy – excuse me I shouldn’t say that,” Biden remarked. “I spent time with Jimmy Carter and it’s finally caught up with him. But they found a way to keep him going for a lot longer than they anticipated because they found a breakthrough.”
Huh. During a private fundraising dinner, Joe Biden spoke about former President Jimmy Carter. It is known that Carter was placed on hospice care, as his health’s declined. During his comments, Biden let slip that Carter asked him to do his eulogy.
Biden quickly caught himself (which is rare), stating he shouldn’t have said that. Um… nope. You’d have to be crazy not to think Carter is near passing. The man is 98 years old and is struggling with numerous health problems. But it was not Biden’s place to mention this detail, lending weight to the suspicion that Carter is soon to die.
Biden is known for saying things he shouldn’t. You have to wonder about the people responsible for Biden’s speeches and comments in the White House. Does anyone really want to be in charge of managing Biden’s public image?
I sure as hell don’t. The man can’t control himself. Plus, he is reportedly ornery and grumpy when people try to rein him in.
It’s not uncommon for former presidents to speak at a president’s funeral. But really, Joe Biden? We know Biden and Carter had something of a relationship. But can’t he find someone else better suited to speaking?
I guess there are few people left old enough to remember Jimmy in his prime, so I guess he has no choice. At least Biden’s got that in his favor, old age!
