Biden's Teleprompter Gaffe

Joe Biden's Teleprompter Appears to Malfunction During Coronavirus Update


Not even the teleprompter could prevent the latest Joe Biden gaffe.


The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee apparently lost his train of thought Monday while delivering a speech on what he believed President Trump should do to combat the deadly coronavirus pandemic.


”I’m glad the president has finally activated the National Guard. Now we need the armed forces and the National Guard to help with hospital capacity, supplies and logistics,” the former veep said, reading from a teleprompter in a 30-second video clip posted to his campaign YouTube channel and picked up on by Mediaite.


“We need to activate the reserve corp of doctors and nurses and beef up the number of responders dealing with this crush of cases.

 

And, uh, in addition to that, in addition to that, we have to make sure that, we are,” he started to add before stumbling over his next words and making a circular motion with his right hand, apparently asking staffers to roll back the prompter, before changing course.

There are good reasons why Trump was impeached trying to destroy the reputation of Joe Biden. Republican Internal Polls show Joe Biden is the most formidable opponent of Comrade Trump, 

 

Remember, the vote in 38 states is already baked in. The election will be decided in the 12 purple [battleground] states, primarily Michigan, Wisconsin, PA., Ohio, and FL. Guess which Democrat is very popular and well liked in those states? The answer is Joe Biden.

 

Trump became president in 2016 because he marginally won those key battleground states, primarily because blue collar, mid-western workers didn't like Hillary.

This is not about Bernie. It's about Biden.

 

Biden lost me on Day One


When he made his first campaign stop it wasn't to meet and greet the American Public.

 

His first campaign stop was in the home of CEO executive of Comcast. Comcast owns MSNBC, NBC, CNBC and Telemundo.

The private fundraiser was attended by many corporate bigwigs.


Would I vote for Joe Biden?


It depends on his choice for VP. It's likely Biden would be a one-term president. There's even a slight chance he won't complete his term. So, his VP choice would be important in my decision.

I would like to see him choose Tulsi Gabbard as his running mate, and hopefully she would replace Biden.
Tulsi is commited to end these never-ending wars, and I believe she would make a good president overall.

So, if having the country suffer with Biden for a few years gets us Tulsi as President, then I'd likely be on board.


17 years ago, while George W. Bush was President...

I have not bothered to read the story but all  I can think of is that IF Biden makes a mistake using a teleprompter, it is front page news.  WHEN Trump makes a mistake using a teleprompter, it is considered another day with a "Y" at the end.

Seems probable Toad's stupidity requires no technical enhancement, he's just that dumb.

Google Stupid Trump Stuff and see for yourself.

The Republicans elected a psychotic moron and think they can deflect attention from this fact by focusing on a hinky te4leprompter??

Oh well, they also believe ToadPOTUS was a great businessman and attracts huge crowds of admiring fans wherever he goes.

 

Don't GOPerBots  ever wonder why all the tapes of his rallies are very close focus on lil donny? It ain't vanity folks, its all them thar empty seats in the stands. Also check the parking lot for all the out of State buses that follow him from rally to rally WITH THE SAME PAID CHEERLEADERS AT EVERY EVENT.

We may agree Biden will be a puppet, but we disagree on who will be the Puppet Masters.


Follow the Money (These are not socialists)...


Donors backing Joe Biden, led by a $1 million check from San Francisco real estate mogul George Marcus.


Among the dozens of Biden loyalists who gave to Biden's PAC were investment banker Roger Altman.


Megadonor Bernard Schwartz, chairman of BLS Investments, a wealthy financier who has organized dinners with prominent centrist Democrats in order to prevent Sen. Bernie Sanders from gaining the Democratic nomination.

 

Schwartz is known for deep-pocketed donations. In 2016 alone, Schwartz, through his foundation, gave $1 million to "Third Way", a centrist group backed by "corporate donors" that has vigorously "opposed Medicare for All" and other ideas centered on tackling economic inequality.


Financier Blair Effron, an American financier. Effron co-founder Centerview Partners, an investment banking firm previously a major supporter of Kamala Harris, gave $50,000.

You have to admit, Trump is excellent at giving away other people's money. The country is going to wind up $5 trillion in the hole by the time we dump him in November. Our kids, their kids, and their kids' kids will be paying for Trump's blunders.

I didn't see your mention of Pelosi and Schumer's name in it for "dumping" $5 trillion dollars because of new windmill mandates, more Obama phones, climate change initiatives, minority CEOs, and a list of PORK that the left want.

 

Trump wants to jump start the economy - not bust it!

Trump was a Dem for years. His family members were very close to Clinton family members, and Trump tried to become part of Bill circle. Trump is not a Reb. he is a white nationalist or Nazi, and is moving to become full Dictator with the help of enablers. Read about Hitler and you find Hitler and Trump the same. By the way most real Reb. left the party and only the Tea party  members remain. You know the mostly white, rural, uneducated, poor, easy to lead etc.

It's hard to believe someone can be so emotional about his support for Bernie, that he incredibly thinks nothing will change if Biden is elected. It's almost funny watching a person completely ignore logic. Unbelievable!

 

Joe Biden will be 25 times better than Trump as our president, and that's probably a massive understatement.

Unbelievable is about right. People act as if they're defending a spouse, not a political candidate. I have my favorite candidate as well, but I'm not emotionally beholden to him/her to the point of foolishness seeing what the stakes are if Trump wins.

I think Biden will be worse than Obama. Much worse.

He may even be worse than I anticipated Hillary as president. 

Could he be better than Trump? Hmmm?...it comes down to "Shoot me or stab me".

 

Joe Biden Promises Rich Donors He Won’t ‘Demonize’ The Wealthy If Elected President

'A'... Biden administration would be party rule, similar to how the commies run things. Slow Joe is a good dog for the DNC. Talk about czars in the Obama administration, slow Joe would be opening the flood gates of swamp people. Clapper, Comey, Rice, Jarret, McCabe ... probably all get positions. Deja vu without charisma.

Where would Hillary fit? Curious minds wanna know.

Yes, a preview into a Biden presidency.

 

The way I see it, Biden will surround himself with Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan or other Wall Streeters as economic advisors. Jamie Dimon's name (JP Morgan) has already come up as Sec'y of Treasury.


He'll have Generals directing our foreign policy to continue the wars.


As Biden said to his big-dollar donors at a fundraiser "Nothing will fundamentally change".

Biden's main role will be to read off the teleprompter.


That's how I see it -- a "puppet president".

So you will be voting for Trump just come out and say it. You support him and everything he stands for. Telling lies 90% of the time, having his charity put out of business for fraud, having to pay 24 million for fraud to students of Trump U, wanting to kill those over 65 so he and his lackeys can make money, Using women for his own pleasure, raping his wife and other women etc. Yes the Trump supporters are really backing a great leader or Dictator.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wrong, wrong, and wrong.

 

I'll tell you how I've voted in the past and maybe it will give you a clue as to who I will, and will not vote for. Even I don't even know who I'm voting for at this point.


I voted Democratic from the time I was eligible to vote right up to, and including Jimmy Carter in 1976.
I was very disappointed in Jimmy Carter's first four years. Long gas lines, sending the military to the Middle East to "protect our vital interests" - oil. Even back then, I didn't want to see us go to war over oil.
So, in 1980 I was 100% all-in for Ted Kennedy.
Jimmy Carter wouldn't debate Ted Kennedy in the Primary. He blamed the hostage situation in Iran. Healthcare was also a big issue with Ted. I liked that.
Carter won the nomination and ran against Reagan.
I didn't trust Reagan. I also thought he was too much of a warmonger.
I ended up voting for Independent candidate John Anderson. At that point, it was no longer "Vote blue no matter who".
Prior to running as an Independent in 1980, John Anderson was a Republican who seemed more like a Liberal than a Republican, to me. I thought he also had a good sense of humor. He won my vote.
I voted for Ronald Reagan four years later when he ran for re-election. Reagan turned out to be not as bad as I thought he would be. I also landed a good paying job with excellent benefits - including healthcare. I was happy the way things were going for me. I guess it's true -- "It's the economy, stupid".
1988 I voted for George H. Bush for the same reasons as Reagan, although I was wary of him having served as CIA Director.
In 1992 I did not vote for Bush for re-election. The main reason? "Read my lips. No new taxes." I didn't mind that he raised taxes. Not at all. I didn't trust him because he "lied" about raising taxes. I wasn't sure if and when he was being honest.
I didn't didn't vote for Bill Clinton because he "lied" about Gennifer Flowers. It wasn't the affair that bothered me as much as I felt I couldn't trust him. In the end I voted for Ross Perot, the "outsider", not based on issues, but the idea we might actually have a legitimate Third Party - and he seemed honest.
In 1996 I was 100% all-in for Ralph Nader - the Consumer Advocate who took on the corporate giants. One problem. He wasn't on the ballot in my state. I ended up voting unenthusiastically for Ross Perot, again.
Election year 2000. I am anxious to vote for Nader this time. He's on the ballot in Florida. But, the polls were very close in Florida between Gore and Bush. I definitely did not want oilman Bush. I was afraid the price of gasoline would shoot up if he became President. He might even push us into a war over oil. (Both came true). There was one thing that got me to vote for Gore and not Nader that year -- Al Gore's "Put Social Security in a locked box". Bush was taliking about privatizing Social Security. So, against my original wishes, I ended up voting for Gore. Looking back, I sort of regret that vote. Why?...
Shortly after the election the local public library was selling used books for 25 cents. I bought a book about Ralph Nader. Then I read another book about Nader. Then a couple of books written by Ralph Nader. To make a long story short - I voted for Nader in 2004 and 2008.
In 2012 I voted for Rocky Anderson. See video below.
In 2016 -- Jill Stein.


So, do you still think I'm voting for Trump in 2020?


For one, I look for honesty in a candidate. When it comes to honesty, both Trump and Biden fail miserably.


This campaign ad from 2012 still rings loud today....

Here are my thoughts for you.

You really voted for Ronnie as his oipponit was Carter and our country is a 2 party system. (I voted for Regan also). In 88 I voted the same way you did. In 1992 you voted for Bush as his oppoent was Clinton and our country is a 2 party system. By that time I had had the privilege of meeting both men. I voted for Clinton and he did not lie on what you said. In 96 you voted for Clinton as Ross took away votes from Dole. Our country is a 2 party system. I voted Clinton. In 2000 we both voted for Gore.   In 2004 you voted for Bush while I voted opposite. Our country is a 2 party system. In 2008 you voted for McCain I voted for Carrey. 2016 you voted for Jill the Russian backed person to help Trump win, so you voted for Trump. This country is a 2 party system. I voted for Hillary knowing Trump was a Mob Boss from NY.   This year we both have to decide. I will never vote for Trump, but based on your record I think you could unless you would say that you will support the Dem, and I have already said that.
