He earned the nickname Sleepy Joe by President Donald J. Trump during the 2020 election, and he hid from the public during his final weeks of the election in his home in Delaware, but now that Joe Biden is becoming the 46th President of the United States of America it’s time to look back on his top 10 gaffes of Joe Biden while on the campaign trail in his career. That career started in 1970 when a somewhat younger Biden ran for the office of councilman for the New Castle County council in Delaware. Two short years later, in 1972 he ran and won a U.S. Senate seat for Delaware and never looked back. Biden served in the senate until 2014.
When it comes to running for President, Biden lost in 1984, 1988, and 2016.

#2 Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as White kids.
Talking about education, Joe Biden poor kids are just as talented as white kids…and all sorts of other colors of kids. To his credit, he received a few awkward golf claps for the comment.
Joe Biden slip-up in Iowa tonight.
“Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”

#3 In Delaware … you cannot go to a 7-11 or Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.
Joe Biden tells Indian America, that in his home state, you can’t go to a 7-11 unless you have slight Indian Accent.
In 2006, Biden commented on the growing population of Indian Americans in Delaware.

#4 Biden talked about black children playing with his blonde hair legs and jumping on his lap
In one of the most bizarre episodes of the 2020 election, Joe Biden told a tale about his time working at pool for black children. Cornpop aside, Biden’s tale involved children playing with his blonde leg hair and sitting on his lap.
What part of Biden do you love? Is it that he doesn’t know what office he’s running for? Is it his stories about Cornpop? Or is it that he liked when young kids used to play with his leg hair? https://t.co/8QihEpaMR9

#5 You ain’t black
Joe Biden has a way with words, especially when it comes time to rally the black vote. In 2020, he said, “If you have a problem if you’re trying to figure out if you’re voting for me or Trump then you ain’t black.”
This doesn’t seem like anti-racism to me: https://t.co/zmRxeZ5LZN

Thats mighty racist if you, even to the point of offensiveness that you choose not to see brown and black in the crowd either. Or as Joe Biden said if you dont vote for me you aint black. https://t.co/pJHIkcas6P
