We’d honestly forgotten how much of a gaffe machine Joe Biden is, but it hasn’t taken him long to remind us, what with his talk about “making America straight again” and writing off China as an economic competitor.

The press quickly ran cover for “tactical politician” Biden after his unwanted neck-kissing and hair-sniffing came up in an article, but he seemed to step in it again Saturday in South Carolina, where he noted that Rep. Clyburn couldn’t make it, but one of his daughters could.

Why would he even say that in the first place?
