The more gaffes Democrat White House hopeful makes on the campaign trail, the more it seems he won’t be able to recover his reputation before voters hit the polls on Nov. 3.
In his latest on-air blunder, Biden told the U.S Conference of Mayors on Saturday that he’s been working with local leaders his whole career — “from the time I got to the Senate 180 years ago,” the former vice president and Delaware senator said, according to Breitbart.
It all started on Friday…
Biden’s claim that he’s been in government for nearly two centuries came amid a gaffe-filled weekend that, to be frank, wasn’t much different from any other weekend on the road for Uncle Joe.
According to Breitbart, the former VP started things off with an interview Friday on MSNBC, where host Stephanie Ruhle had to help him through an apparently lost train of thought.
“For example, the paycheck protection act,” he began, according to Breitbart. “You know, 1% of the money has gone out. One percent. One percent of the, uh — that’s not the paycheck — the um, uh, the, uh, the bill for small, for major…”
Ruhle corrected Biden; rather than the Paycheck Protection Program, he meant “Main Street Lending.”
“Main Street Lending,” Biden repeated. “One percent’s gone out,” he said, according to Breitbart. Take a look:

A rough weekend for Joe
It was the next day that Biden commented about being a decades-long public official.
“That’s why I’ve made it a priority of my entire career to work closely with you,” he told the conference of mayors. “From the time I got to the Senate 180 years ago, you know,” he said, laughing but failing to correct himself. “And I suppose [during] my tenure as vice president.”
It’s just the latest sign that Biden may not be as ready to lead as he seems to think.
