Biden Gives Comments In Harrisburg, PA

President Biden recently had a slip-up that’s stirring up conversation on both sides of the political aisle. While speaking to voters in Philadelphia, Biden mistakenly implied that the city played a crucial role in his Senate victories—a position he held in Delaware, not Pennsylvania.

During the campaign event, Biden said, “Even when I was running for Senate, each time I ran, quite frankly, not a joke, Philadelphia, in particular, got me across the line.” The crowd cheered and applauded, but Biden doubled down, “No, I’m not joking. No, I mean it, seriously, organizationally, and in terms of fundraising—the whole deal.”

In reality, Biden served as the U.S. senator for Delaware from 1973 to 2009 before becoming vice president. While his residence in Wilmington is within the Philadelphia media market, only Delaware residents could have voted for him in his Senate races.

On the same day, Biden addressed supporters in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, repeating his claim about Philadelphia’s role in his Senate success. He didn’t seem to catch his mistake and continued to emphasize Philadelphia’s importance in his political career.

This latest gaffe follows a series of missteps that have fueled criticism of Biden’s cognitive abilities, especially after his recent debate performance against former President Donald Trump. Born in Scranton, Pennsylvania, Biden moved to Delaware at the age of 10, which may explain some of the confusion.

Biden’s critics and supporters alike are likely to seize on this error. For his critics, it adds another example to their calls for him to step down from the presidential race. For his supporters, it’s a reminder of Biden’s deep roots in the region, even if he misspoke.

On “The Big Weekend Show,” Dr. Nicole Saphier addressed growing concerns about President Biden’s cognitive health. During the roundtable, Dr. Saphier highlighted the importance of cognitive tests starting at age 65, emphasizing that annual exams help ensure optimal physical and mental fitness. Early detection, she noted, allows for timely intervention to potentially slow cognitive decline.

Dr. Saphier pointed out the visible signs that have raised alarms among the public: “Unfortunately, Mr. President. That’s why people are concerned because they’re watching him every single day,” said Saphier. “They’re watching his physical stumbles, his verbal stumbles, the gaffes the, difficulty with memory recall. You know, coming up with certain things. And so you know, sometimes I forget things on air all the time. But I think people are growing concerned with him. Because it seems to be getting progressively worse.”

So, folks, what do you think of this latest slip-up?
