Footage also shows Biden coughing and out of breath after a short walk to a podium for his Philadelphia event.
Democratic Party presidential candidate Joe Biden has left his Delaware basement the past few days to do some on-site campaigning.
Since then, there have been several spectacular brain freezes and gaffes that have gone viral. For example, during a speech in Philadelphia, Biden said 200 million people have died of coronavirus infections.
2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden had another gaffe on Sunday when he said an estimated 200 million people have already died from the coronavirus, even though the number of American casualties is closer to 200,000.
“If Donald Trump has his way, the complications from COVID-19, which are well beyond what they should be — it’s estimated that 200 million people have died — probably by the time I finish this talk,” he said during a campaign speech.
As the population of the US is about 330 million, the former Vice President’s statement would mean that 2/3rds of Americans have died. And while it is simply likely that Biden meant to say 200 thousand, there might have been a reason for Biden’s Freudian slip over the extreme number of cases. Everyone knows the dead vote Democrat.
Pledge of Allegiance
At an appearance in Wisconsin, Biden then botched the Pledge of Allegiance.
2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden screwed up the Pledge of Allegiance Monday during a campaign speech in Wisconsin.
“I pledge allegiance to the United States of America, one nation, indivisible, under God, for real,” Biden said.

Then during a Telemundo appearance, and during a seemingly confusing response about deportations, Biden mumbled, “I lost that line”.
What is happening here in this interview w/ @JoeBiden? After he says he’ll freeze deportations once becoming president, he tells someone off camera, “I lost that line.” Telemundo’s @jdbalart then tells him “We can talk you and I on that.”
José, was he reading his responses? pic.twitter.com/Yoausx0zTr

Does He Have a Chance?
When walking back to the car from an event, and amid scream of “go home,” a man told Joe Biden: “You don’t have a chance, Joe.” Joe Biden’s response: “Probably not.”
Finally, while not a gaffe, video of Biden coughing and out of breath after a short walk to a podium at the Philadelphia event should disturb Democrats. His first debate with President Donald Trump eight days away.
Watch as Biden struggles to find his words until he’s able to latch on to the teleprompter.
This is after he took off all of yesterday and half of today. He read for 15 minutes before exiting, taking no questions. pic.twitter.com/tecd25WSZv
