Biden slips and trips through Wednesday’s Democratic debate

Joe Biden “repeatedly stumbled” over words and numbers in his second Democratic presidential primary debate Wednesday night, the Washington Examiner reported.

Biden’s mistakes ranged comments that made him appear a fool and those that improved or even endorsed his rivals. For example, Biden warned that "eight more years of Trump will change America in a fundamental way," but President Trump can only constitutionally run for one more four-year term after 2020.

At another point, Biden said Sen. Kamala Harris' plan on "Medicare for all" single-payer healthcare "in 10 years will cost $3 trillion," when estimates find "Medicare for all" would actually cost $32 trillion in that time.

Biden even accidentally referred to New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker as the future president when he said, "The fact is that the bills that the president, excuse me, the future president, that the senator is talking about, are bills that were passed years ago and they were passed overwhelmingly.”

"Well first of all, I’m grateful that he endorsed my presidency already," Booker responded.
