6 Recent Examples of Joe Biden’s Cognitive Decline That Should Concern Us All

Joe Biden’s gaffes have been a source of humor for years, but now that the odds are very much in favor of him being the Democratic nominee, it doesn’t seem all that funny anymore. Truth be told, there are plenty of Biden gaffes that are just that: gaffes. Everyone has them. But there have been quite a few moments on the campaign trail that seem to be more serious than your garden-variety gaffes, and actually appear to be manifestations of Biden’s cognitive decline.
I’ve reviewed recent Biden gaffes to compile what I believe to be the best examples of evidence of Biden’s cognitive decline. There are plenty of gaffes not included here. For example, Biden not knowing what city or state he’s in is something we’ve seen from politicians who travel a lot who we don’t suspect of having diminished mental capacity. On the incident where Biden mixed up his wife and sister, I will give him the benefit of the doubt that he simply expected them to be on the opposite sides of him than they were on.
6. His confusion about black female senators
It was such an awkward moment during the November debate when Joe Biden, touting his support from the African American community, noted “I have more people supporting me in the black community because they know me, they know who I am. Three former chairs of the Black Caucus, the only African American woman elected to the U.S. Senate [Carol Moseley Braun], a whole range of people,” he said.
“That’s not true,” Senator Cory Booker said right away.
“The other one is here,” Senator Kamala Harris fired back at Biden.
“I said first!” Biden said, trying to recover from his mistake, though he never actually said first.
Now, in all fairness to Biden, Kamala Harris is not African American. She’s half Jamaican and half Indian, but few people on the left ever seem willing to make that distinction, so I can’t quite give him a pass for forgetting that he was sharing the stage with a black female Senator at the time he made that claim.
Joe Biden said tonight that he had the endorsement of the "only African American woman" elected to the US Senate, referring to former US Sen. Carol Moseley Braun. But that isn't true.
“The other one is here,” Kamala Harris said.

Biden’s black female senator flubs continued while campaigning in South Carolina in late February when Biden made the most bizarre claim that he’s "looking forward to appointing the first African-American woman to the United States Senate."
Joe Biden:
“I’m looking forward to appointing the first African American woman to the United States Senate.”

Senators are not appointed but elected. Biden should know this. He was a senator, after all. While he most likely meant to say Supreme Court, he didn’t correct himself, so he likely didn’t even realize his mistake.
