Former US Vice President and White House hopeful Joe Biden delivered a series of bizarre addresses and comments this week, addressing concerns regarding his health during the Chinese-originated Coronavirus outbreak.
Biden, whose video appearances have been dubbed a “proof of life” stunt, seemed incoherent after a spell during a Monday address, leading some to believe his teleprompter broke.
Unable to speak off the cuff, Biden began rambling.
need to build an arsenal of democracy, as we did in 1940,” Biden said. “We can take, we can make a personal productive equipment.”
it is likely he is referring to the return of US production of PPE (personal protective equipment) largely made in China, Biden just couldn’t seem to find the words.
one point, he praised journalists -who some believe are largely responsible for stirring mass panic amongst the public in exchange for ratings- as “the journalists who keep us up to date and hold us accountable as leaders” and “putting all of it on the line
for all of us.”
Biden’s gaffe-filled speech soon made it to Twitter, where it became processed and condensed for a more sound-byte friendly audience.
On Tuesday, Biden spoke on The View, where he seemed to confuse himself as he claimed that finding the cure for the Chinese Virus “will make the problem worse, no matter what.”
“Are you at all concerned, as Trump said, that we cannot let the cure be worse than the problem itself?” asked View guest co-host Sara Haines.
“We have to take care of the cure,” Biden said. “That will make the problem worse no matter what.”
Biden then contradicted his gaffe.
We know what has to be done … We’ve got to flatten that curve. And we’ve got to make sure that once, in fact, we have this under control, it doesn’t come back. So we should be focusing on getting all the help necessary in terms of testing, in terms of access to the gear that our first responders, our doctors, our nurses need in treating people.”
Snippets of the video were disseminated to Twitter, where they quickly gained views and shares.
