The focus on Friday was Joe Biden’s remarks about the sexual assault allegations against him from former staffer Tara Reade.

It may have taken all of Biden’s remaining mental competence just to deal with that because he made a huge gaffe elsewhere in the interview on Morning Joe.

While he was speaking about the Wuhan coronavirus to Joe Scarborough, he told an unbelievable whopper, claiming that over 600,000 Americans had died from the virus and implying most were nurses and doctors.

Only slightly off at the time…by about 540,000. The alleged number was about 60,000.

The problem was he didn’t even realize it and he said it more than once. The fact that he had to be corrected and didn’t realize the number didn’t make sense given our current situation is more than a little troubling. This is someone who wants to be president and is claiming he’s following what’s going on closely be

You hear what sounds like a huge sigh the first time he says it. I wonder if that’s Joe Scarborough. Probably thinking, “Oh, my, what is he doing!”

What it probably means is he was reading from a teleprompter but can’t see well enough and misread it.


He continued on to say that President Donald Trump had “no intercourse whatsoever with the rest of the..world” and then makes some garbled claim of how the Obama administration dealt with the Ebola virus.

We might not want our president to be having intercourse with the rest of the world, just saying. If he means communication about the virus, we have been having that. But this is the second time he’s used the term “intercourse” in the last few days. One has to wonder what’s going on in his head.
