In another embarrassing flub, 2020 Democratic hopeful Joe Biden was speaking to a group of people about his former boss, Barack Obama — but appeared unable to remember Obama’s name or unable to summon the words when he needed them.
It’s ironic, as Biden has based most of his campaign on being Obama’s BFF. (Shown above is Biden receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom from Obama in January 2017.)
This latest gaffe now joins a group of other blunders by Biden that together are raising legitimate concerns about his mental fitness.
“Joe Biden appears to forget Barack Obama’s name,” The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra wrote on Twitter; he posted a video of the 76-year-old’s remarks.
Biden was discussing the fact that Russia was disinvited from the then-G8 summit under Obama “because they invaded another country and annexed a significant portion of it called Crimea.”
“He was saying it was President — ” Biden began, then seemed to suffer a long pause.
“My boss, it was his fault,” he finally finished.
Two months ago, Biden posted an image to Twitter of “Barack” and “Joe” friendship bracelets.
And Biden has repeatedly touted his relationship with the 44th president during stops with black voters.
Another video of the same talk posted by RNC Research shows Biden referring to the Group of Seven — U.S., Canada, France, Japan, Germany, England and Italy — as the G8, rather than the G7 as its been since 2014.

During the same campaign stop, Biden referred to the “G7 Summit” as the “G8 Summit,” while he was touting his amazing foreign policy expertise.
As each day goes by on the campaign trail, it’s clear that Joe Biden is way out of his element.
