Top Ten Joe Biden gaffes

Joseph Biden served as the 47th vice president of the United States for 8 years, but given his penchant for verbal diarrhea, you might think he was a rookie politician.

Biden represented Delaware in the U.S. Senate from 1973 to 2009. A member of the Democratic Party, he is a candidate for the United States President in the 2020 election.

Biden became the sixth-youngest senator in American history when he was first elected to the U.S. Senate in November 1972.

He was re-elected six times to the Senate, but resigned to assume the vice presidency in 2009. He was the fourth most senior senator when he resigned.

Biden was a long-time member and former chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

While Biden opposed the Gulf War in 1991, he advocated U.S. and NATO intervention in the Bosnian War in 1994 and 1995. He voted in favor of the resolution authorizing the Iraq War in 2002, but opposed the deployment of more U.S. troops in Iraq in 2007.

Biden also served as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee from 1987 to 1995.

Biden ran for President of the United States in the 1988 and 2008 presidential elections, but withdrew from both the races.

Ending months of speculation, Biden announced in October 2015 that he would not seek the presidency in the 2016 elections. On April 25, 2019, Biden announced his 2020 run for president.

While the 76-year-old Biden is well known for his ability to connect with voters’ emotions, he also has a dubious reputation of being prone to gaffes and verbal blunders that have come under scrutiny during the latest presidential run.

Biden has himself admitted he is a “gaffe machine”.

Here is a list of the top ten Joe Biden gaffes of all time.
