Biden Forget’s Son’s Job, Mistakes Him for Another Position
From Amy Klobuchar forgetting the name of the Mexican president, to Bloomberg’s stony responses during the NBC debate, Biden had finally joined the long list of seemingly incompetent Democratic nominees.
During the CNN town hall event, aspiring presidential candidate, Joe Biden, forgot his son’s Beau Biden’s job title, saying that he worked as the “Attorney General of the United States.”
In his statement, Biden referred to the incident in which Attorney General William Barr claimed that Trump had made it “impossible” for him to do his job. “Never direct the Justice Department as to who they should or should not indict and under what circumstances they should or should not, That is an independent judgment to be made,” Biden told the audience at the event.
Biden continued, “My son, the one who, my deceased son, was the Attorney General of the United States, and before that, he was a federal prosecutor in one of the largest offices in the country in Philadelphia.” The problem is that Biden made a false claim since Beau worked not as the Attorney General of the United States, but as the Attorney General of Delaware. Biden added, “And I’ll tell you what, he wouldn’t even talk to me about anything he was doing—his father—and he shouldn’t have, and I didn’t have any control over either one of those things.”

The former vice-president had also used the event to talk about his stand on controversial topics, specifically on the issue of the second amendment. Biden made strong remarks when he proposed to ban semi-automatic firearms and clips that have multiple bullets on them—which pretty much describes all modern firearms. As Biden said, “I’m going to do everything in my power in office or out of office to get those assault weapons off the street, which I have done once already. And to get those clips that have multiple bullets in them, not for sale, not be able to sell silencers, all those things.”

Biden announced the same stand on gun-control last September, “The idea that we don’t have elimination of assault-type weapons, magazines that can hold multiple bullets in them, it’s absolutely mindless.” Biden went on to add another false claim, “It’s no violation of the Second Amendment.”
Later, Biden stated that there should be no compromise between the Republicans over his tight gun-control policies, even it means going against the Second amendment. “None,” Biden said. “None on this. I think this is no compromise. This is one we have to just push, and push, and push, and push, and push.”
However, in a study made by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, which is ironically named after gun-control activist Michael Bloomberg, the data shows that having tight gun control policies does not necessarily equate to reduced shooting incidents.
In fact, the study notes that it “did not find an independent association between assault weapon bans and the incidence of fatal mass shootings after controlling for the effects of bans on large-capacity magazines.”
Perhaps the only good thing about Biden and his flimsy platforms is that, while he had supported amnesty policies throughout his career, he is the only Democratic nominee who agreed to leave the statute in place. This means that if he wins, he will still make border crossing without undergoing an inspection classified as a misdemeanor offense.
