Biden brought youth reinforcements on stage to help open a new office to prevent gun violence amid an “epidemic” of mass shootings. Also on stage was Rep. Maxwell Frost, 26, the Daily Mail reported. Biden noted that Frost, elected at age 25, is the youngest member of the lower house of Congress. “I remember when I was young. We have something in common. I was elected to the Senate at the age of 29. The only difference is that he was able to take office immediately and I had to wait 17 days. That was 827 years ago. ” the White House chief said. It was a variation on a similar joke about the ancient past that he told at a fundraiser on Broadway in New York on Monday. “We will save American democracy. “I am more optimistic about the future of this country than I have been in the 800 years I have served,” Biden said.
Let us remember that on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York, Biden tripped over the Brazilian flag at an event with the president of Brazil, and in the end he did not shake hands with Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. Biden also told the same story twice about kicking off his campaign at a fundraiser in New York. He made another mistake this week when he spoke about the Capitol Black Caucus at a Congressional Latino Caucus event.
Biden has previously talked about what he did centuries ago. Then, in June, before collapsing on stage at the Air Force Academy in Colorado, Biden acknowledged that questions about his age were legitimate. “When I graduated high school 300 years ago, I applied to the Naval Academy,” she said, drawing laughter from nearly a thousand people who attended the event. In May, more than 60 House Republicans demanded that Biden take a cognitive test or drop out of the 2024 presidential race.
