Bumbling Joe Biden says Donald Trump is the ‘SITTING President’ as confused 81-year-old stumbles through economic speech in South Carolina trying to shore up support for another term
Bumbling Joe Biden said Donald Trump is the ‘sitting president’ as the confused 81-year-old stumbled through an economic speech in South Carolina over the weekend.
The president sought to drum up support for another term when he feted the former president at a dinner Saturday celebrating the state and its large base of black voters.
Along with Trump opposing his views on the US economy, Biden also said that his Republican rival’s failure to support the rights of black citizens was a threat to democracy.
“American consumers are facing real confidence in the economy that we are building. Let me tell you who else is noticing — Donald Trump,’ Biden said in his speech.
The president then began slurring his words as he tried to collect his thoughts, saying: ‘Did you see what he said recently about — he wants, he wants to see the economy collapse this year? A sitting President.’
During a speech in South Carolina on Saturday, President Joe Biden tripped over his words as he attacked Donald Trump, calling him a “sitting president.”
Biden also branded Trump a ‘loser’ when he brought up that his Republican rival ‘refused’ to visit a cemetery in France honoring fallen US soldiers
Biden also called Trump a “loser” when he brought up that his Republican rival had “refused” to visit a cemetery in France honoring fallen American soldiers.
‘And referred to those heroes, and I quote, as “pigs and losers.” He actually said that! How dare he say that!’
“The only loser I see is Donald Trump,” Biden said.
The president added that Trump “knows” that the US economy is “good and strong and getting stronger.”
“He knows that while it’s good for America, it’s bad for him politically.”
Biden’s latest faux pas came just after he stumbled during another speech at a Wisconsin brewery where he called Trump a “professor” rather than “predecessor,” before correcting himself.
During his remarks, the president appeared to be talking nonsense when he said: ‘The beer is brewed here. It is used to make the brewed beer. During it defines, or, Earth Rider.’
‘Thanks for the Great Lakes. I wonder why,’ he added.

Separately, a photo published on the Twitter account of Democratic Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar showed the president at a bar with union workers.
He donned a hard hat – but wore it backwards.
Klobuchar held a beer with yellow-shirted workers as Biden, who doesn’t drink, gathered around them and smiled.
Democratic presidential candidate Dean Phillips slammed Biden just hours after he made his confusing speech.
Phillips said Biden has shown “physical and communication decline” and that the issues are “obvious” as concerns about the president’s age surface over his re-election bid.
‘I don’t see cognitive decline. Obviously we’re seeing physical and communication degradation,” Phillips told Fox News later Thursday night.
“I think that goes without saying in any video,” he added. But he didn’t think it was “fair” to suggest that Biden was in cognitive decline.
‘He is human. But he is an 81-year-old man. He is a human being. Donald Trump’s 77,’ the congressman said.
Phillips went on to add that he still has “respect” for Biden, but he’s made it clear throughout his campaign for president that the country doesn’t want Trump or Biden on the ticket.
Just before that blunder, Biden had another startling moment during a speech he gave in Raleigh, North Carolina, where he touted the plan to connect thousands of homes to high-speed Internet.

As he spoke, he became briefly confused when he asked state Democratic Rep. Deborah Ross wanted to praise.
‘Where is Deborah? I just had my picture taken with her. That’s probably why she left,” he joked at first.
“Oh, she really couldn’t be here. That’s not true. I messed it up,” he says uncomfortably. “You know, she’s fighting really hard for the people of this district and she’s in Washington now.”
He continued, explaining the White House’s goal to connect “everyone” in America to high-speed Internet “just like Franklin Roosevelt did with electricity a generation ago.”
“I promised to be president for all of America, whether you voted for me or not. These investments also help all Americans in red states and blue states. We leave no one behind.’
North Carolina is a state that Biden’s campaign has targeted as a potential pickup in the 2024 race.
After his speech mingling, Biden then stopped for a sweet treat at a Cook Out restaurant ordering a ‘triple thick’ black and white milkshake.
He continued to take selfies and chat with the restaurant workers as he was seen in pictures standing at the drive-thru while shoveling the milkshake into his mouth.
A new survey found Trump with a six-point lead over Biden as the 2024 election moved toward a possible rematch after both men swept the New Hampshire primary.
Trump leads Biden by 40 to 34 percentage points in the new Reuters/Ipsos poll of 1,250 adults.
A total of 70 percent of respondents said Biden should not seek re-election, while 56 percent said Trump should not run for office.
