Democrat frontrunner Joe Biden, the former vice president, had another terrible debate night, in my opinion.

He was confused, rambling — and at one point he was even facing the wrong direction.

He also thought Guantanamo Bay was Israel.

And when discussing the issue of age, Biden said he would be younger at the end of his theoretical first term than Winston Churchill was when he left office as British prime minister.

(Why did Biden bring up Churchill, by the way?) Besides, he was wrong.

Churchill, who died in 1965, left office as prime minister in 1955 when he was 81. Biden, who turned 77 in November, would be 82 in 2024 and 86 in 2028. If elected, Biden, at 78 years and 51 days old, would be the oldest U.S. president ever to occupy the Oval Office, as the Washington Examiner pointed out about all of this.

And when Biden turned the wrong way on the debate stage — facing away from the panelists and the audience — that was likely the most shockingly disturbing incident.

It only lasted for a brief moment.

But, really — that’s all the time needed to cause people to be worried.

Even with all of this, his vow to kill “hundreds of thousands of blue-collar jobs” in order to help the environment may have been his most awkward move of the night.

President Donald Trump will have a field day with any one of these folks, in my view.

And Joe Biden is going to be in a world of trouble if he has to go up against the president.
