'We hold these truths to be self-evident: all men and women are created, by the, you know the, you know the thing,' the gaffe-prone former vice president said.

March 3, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) The U.S. Declaration of Independences statement, we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, is one of the most ubiquitous hallmarks of American civic literacy. Yet on Monday it proved to be the latest fodder for gaffe-prone Democrat presidential candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden.
During a campaign stop in Texas, Biden attempted to quote the inspirational line for a stirring stump-speech moment, but appeared to draw a blank when he got to the Creator. We hold these truths to be self-evident: all men and women are created, by the, you know the, you know the thing, he said.

Biden has long been known for rhetorical flubs, but their increasing frequency this this election season has sparked a marked increase in speculation from friends and foes alike as to the 77-year-old contenders mental fitness for the presidency.
How could you be easier to beat than Joe? The guy can't put two sentences together, President Donald Trump quipped to attendees of the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) over the weekend. He joked that if Biden were to win, hes not going to be running the government. He's just going to be sitting in a home someplace and people are going to be running it for him."
Such speculation has apparently rattled the Biden campaign enough that last month, Biden pledged to only serve one term if anything changed in my health, making it incapable for me to fully exert all the energy and mental acuity that was needed to be done.
Long assumed to be the frontrunner for the 2020 Democrat nomination, the pro-abortion, pro-transgender Biden quickly fell behind socialist Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders once actual voting began, but enjoyed a comeback this weekend with his commanding victory in the South Carolina primary. He received another boost soon after in the form of endorsements from former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, soon after they suspended their own presidential bids.
He didn’t botch it. He realized he was walking into a pronouncement on God and you can’t mention that anymore in a Democrat setting today.
Actually this is good that Biden is surging. If he edges out Burny,the commie faction is going to be pissed. They’re all a bunch of spoiled brats and will throw a tantrum and there could be violence. Whatever is bad for them is good for us.
And also, if quoting Jefferson directly, he wrote all men are created equal, not all and men and women. He was afraid to say just all men are created equal, and was afraid to talk of being endowed by our creator with unalienable rights, so a mish mash came out of his mouth instead.
The other three weren’t very important anyway.
The Flying Spaghetti Monster is not a “THING”! /s
He was afraid to say “God.”
“We hold these truths to be self-evident: all men and women are created, by the, you know the, you know the thing,’
Yeah, we know “the thing” Joe but you don’t.
That’s just beautiful. Thank you SO much for posting it.
“All men and women are created by whatchmacallit.”
Yep, Democrats are allergic to any mention of God.
They can’t seem to help themselves. What’s the deal? Are they afraid what would happen if they are in the shadow of a cross????
His handlers and supporters are going to cover up his dementia to the end. But it will become way too obvious.
I hope in some future debate, someone asks Sanders to name three things he loves about America and asks Biden if he believes our rights come from our Creator.
“...are well-endowed with certain...certainly huge...endowments. That among these are your wife, my liberty, and the pursuit of her tushyness. Amen. Good Gawd-a-Mighty, Amen!” —Joe Biden
