  • Biden Doctor Insists: Former VP ‘Has a Brain That Is Functioning’

    Doc: Dem frontrunner definitely doesn't have brain damage Something is happening behind the scenes within the Democratic Party. Former Vice President Joe Biden remains the prohibitive favorite to win the nomination, even as he continues to commit word gaffes with his mouth. Many still consider Biden to be the most "electable" candidate, but some Democrats, including some of his own aides and supporters, are beginning to express doubts about the 76-year-old's intellectual capacity. It would appear that the Democratic establishment, in its desperation to prevent Bernie Sanders from winning the nomination, is keen to develop a contingency plan in case...

    Joe Biden has expanded his edge over the Democratic field in a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS, with 29% of Democratic and Democratic-leaning registered voters saying they back the former vice president. That's up 7 points compared with a late June CNN survey. No other candidate has made meaningful gains over that time.

    At an Iowa Democratic presidential campaign event, former Vice-President Joe Biden electrified an enthusiastic crowd of supporters by assuring them that “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids. They may not pay attention in school or get good grades, but many in our urban areas have shown entrepreneurial promise by establishing thriving small drug distribution businesses that have overcome the daunting opposition of the police and the law. This, not diplomas on the wall, is the kind of action that makes America great.” Biden also tried to bolster confidence in Democratic electoral success by...

    Joe Biden’s string of gaffes is raising questions among Democrats about his ability to beat President Trump in 2020. Biden made headlines three times in the last week by misspeaking. Over the weekend he mistakenly said he had met as vice president with students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. “Those kids in Parkland came to see me when I was vice president,” he told reporters in Iowa. The Parkland school was attacked by a mass shooter and many of the students were turned into gun control activists in an incident in 2018 — more than a...
  • WaPo Reporter: Biden Is Not a ‘Master Debater’

    Former Vice President Joe Biden is not a "master debater," especially when faced with talents such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), according to Washington Post congressional reporter Karoun Demirjian. Demirjian noted during a panel on CNN's Inside Politics that Warren's rise in the polls over the past few months have likely been a reflection of her performances at the two Democratic primary debates. That success, Demirjian said, is shifting public opinion away from Biden and toward Warren. "She's gotten a rise out of that whereas Biden is not the master debater people were hoping him to be," Demirjian said....

    Allies to Joe Biden have been floating the idea of altering [reducing] the former vice president's schedule in an effort to reduce the gaffes he has made in recent days. Biden has a tendency to make the blunders late in the day, his allies say, particularly after a long swing on the road, like he had last week in Iowa. They say something needs to be done to give the candidate more down time [naps for the old guy] as the campaign intensifies in the fall. "He needs to be a strong force on the campaign trail, but he also...
  • Obama reportedly told Biden he didn't have to run in 2020

    Former President Barack Obama, discussing Joe Biden’s run for the high office in 2020, reportedly told his vice president that he didn’t “have to do this.” “You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t,” Obama told Biden early in 2019, according to The New York Times. The Times reported that Obama “took pains to cast his doubts about the campaign in personal terms.” Biden, who leads President Trump in several polls on 2020 matchups, said he couldn’t forgive himself if he passed up the opportunity to beat Trump. He initially thought he could beat Trump in 2016, but...

    In the most recent Democratic debate, Senator Cory Booker called Joe Biden to task for his constant name-dropping of Barack Obama. “You invoke President Obama more than anybody in this campaign. You can’t do it when it’s convenient and then dodge it when it’s not,” he said in what was one of my favorite moments ever in any of the debates. According to the New York Times, while Joe Biden was seeking counsel on whether to run for president, Barack Obama tried to talk his former vice president out of running.
  • Joe Biden confuses Burlington, Iowa, with Burlington, Vt., in latest gaffe

    Gaffe-prone Democratic 2020 frontrunner Joe Biden reportedly added another factual blunder to his list Friday. During a campaign fundraiser in his home state of Delaware, the former vice president was referencing a speech he had made to a group of 275 people, in which he accused President Trump of "fueling a literal carnage” in the country through his rhetoric. But Biden mistakenly recalled the location of the speech as Burlington, Vt., instead of Burlington, Iowa, according to The Washington Examiner. Whether Biden had Democratic rival Bernie Sanders -- a former mayor of Burlington, Vt. -- on his mind was not...

    Presidential election "rivals," Joe Biden and President Donald Trump, both threw 2020 events in New Hampshire on Thursday night, and although they were "just down the road" from each other at the same time, they drew very different crowd sizes.According to a local Massachusetts newspaper, The Eagle-Tribune, Democrat Biden drew a crowd of “about 30 supporters” while Republican Trump packed out an arena for his rally in the same state.

    In the midst of the hot takes offered up by the 2020 Democrat candidates when the two anti-Semitic U.S. congresswomen were denied entry into Israel, the guy at the front of the pack was quickly reminded that former President Obama’s administration made a similar decision. Joe Biden posted a tweet meant to criticize the Israeli government’s decision. He said he is a supporter of Israel but no one should be denied entry into a democratic state over “ideas”. “No democracy should deny entry to visitors based on the content of their ideas”, he said. Joe Biden: I have always been...

    Speaking at a bookstore in Manchester, N.H., Dr. Jill Biden urged voters on Monday to consider the "electability" of her husband, former Vice President Joe Biden, ahead of the 2020 Democratic primaries, and how they may have to "swallow a little bit" with the Democratic front-runner in order to defeat President Trump. "I know that not all of you are committed to my husband, and I respect that, but I want you to think about your candidate, his or her electability, and who’s going to win this race," Dr. Biden said. "And so if you're looking at that you've got...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden compared President Donald Trump to a childhood bully he would “smack” in the mouth during a CNN interview airing Friday. “The idea that I’d be intimidated by Donald Trump,” Biden told CNN’s Chris Cuomo. “He’s the bully that I knew my whole life. He’s the bully that I’ve always stood up to. He’s the bully that used to make fun when I was a kid that I stutter, and I’d smack him in the mouth.” Cuomo called Democratic presidential rival Kamala Harris’ attack on Biden for his position on busing “friendly fire,” then asked how...

    Weighing in on immigration before first Democratic debates, Joe Biden is proposing that Congress grant immediate citizenship to more than 800,000 U.S. residents who were brought to the country illegally as children. The former vice president and Democratic polling leader introduced some of his immigration priorities Monday in a newspaper op-ed that blisters President Donald Trump for an “assault on the dignity” of the Latino community through policies and rhetoric designed to “scare voters” in 2020. “Trump repeatedly invokes racist invective to describe anyone south of the Rio Grande,” Biden writes, assailing him for “actions that subvert our American values...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden likened the cultural effects of President Trump's election to the assassinations of former Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., in a Saturday interview with Al Sharpton. During a discussion in South Carolina that touched on criminal justice reform, Biden argued that Trump's rise to power had awakened an entire generation to the necessity of getting involved in politics, much like the violent murders of political figures did for baby boomers in the 1960s. "I think what’s happening now is, I think that Donald Trump may have reawakened sensibilities in this country...

    The headlines for the 2020 Democratic primary election polls are still the same — Joe Biden is well ahead of everybody else — but the most interesting trend is the uptick in support for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), the first major candidate to announce way back in December. Warren, who had been lagging with just 4 percent in a March Quinnipiac University poll, reached 13 percent in their latest survey, nearly matching Sen. Bernie Sanders at 16 percent with Biden in the lead at 35 percent. Looking across multiple polls paints a clearer picture of Biden’s lead — but also...

    Why is Joe Biden so warm toward China? Last week, Biden raised eyebrows when he shrugged off concerns over the China threat. “Come on, man,” Biden said. “I mean, you know, they’re not bad folks, folks. But guess what, they’re not competition for us.” Perhaps Biden’s insouciant attitude toward the Chinese government has to do with the fact that his family does not consider them competitors but business partners. In 2013, then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden flew aboard Air Force Two to China. Less than two weeks later, Hunter Biden’s firm inked a $1 billion private equity...

    Joe Biden has been keeping his hands to himself in the early weeks of his campaign. Politico published an extensive analysis of Biden’s demure body language throughout his first week on the trail, noting several instances in which the former vice president apparently demonstrated restraint: At his first public event, a rally last week in Pittsburgh, Biden took the stage and kissed his wife, Jill, then offered a simple handshake to the woman who introduced him. In other instances, Biden for the most part appeared to take pains to keep his hands in plain sight. In Monticello, Iowa last week,...
