Biden Says “Millions of People” in U.S. Have Died From Coronavirus
Former Vice President Joe Biden is at it again.
The likely Democrat nominee on Thursday made another verbal gaffe while discussing the coronavirus pandemic during a so-called roundtable discussion.
Biden said that the U.S. was badly hit by the virus that he said resulted, so far, in 85,000 jobs and the lives of “millions of people.”
The likely Democrat nominee probably just mixed up the jobless claims numbers with the U.S. death toll, but the stumble gave new ammunition to his critics that claim he his not mentally fit enough for the office of president.

Despite being holed up due to the coronavirus, Biden has attempted to criticize President Trump’s response to the outbreak. The criticism was to be expected. (What political challenger would ever praise his opponent in a crisis?) But instead of making his own case, his videos have been error-filled and have left many viewers wondering what they just watched.
Steve Krakaur, the editor of Fourth Watch, told Fox News in March that he believes society should “respect our elders, but there’s something wrong with Joe Biden.”
Newsweek pointed out the some of Biden’s recent gaffes included calling COVID-19, “COVID-9,” and stating that the virus originated in “Luhan province.” The virus is believed to have originated in the Chinese city of Wuhan, which is located in the Hubei province.
Earlier in March, Biden told a Missouri rally that, “We cannot get — re-elect — we cannot win this re-election — excuse me. We can only re-elect Donald Trump — if, in fact, we get engaged in this circular firing squad here.”
He continued at the rally, “If you want to nominate a proud Democrat, a lifelong Democrat, an O’Biden Bama Democrat, join us,” he told the crowd.”
That same month, he had an awkward interview on his home turf, MSNBC, where he stumbled during an interview with Nicole Wallace.
“Why doesn’t [Trump] just act like a president? That’s a stupid way to say it… I really wish he. Sorry,” Biden said as Wallace urged him to finish making his point.
“Oh, ah, probably best I don’t,” Biden responded.
Todd Starnes, the conservative writer and host of the “Todd Starnes Radio Show,” wrote at the time, “Sweet mercy, folks. The front porch light is on, but I’m afraid nobody’s home, folks.”
