Might as well say it: Joe Biden gets places confused quite a lot. In August, he lauded the beauty of Vermont during a New Hampshire visit. At a fish fry in Cedar Rapids, Iowa in November, he had to correct himself after saying he was in Ohio. And in December, Biden said he was in Iowa when he was actually in New Hampshire.
Biden made another gaffe during his major foreign policy address Tuesday, the one in which he memory-holed the entire Obama presidency while admonishing President Trump for taking out Qasem Soleimani. This time, he claimed it was the Iranian parliament that had voted to expel all Americans and coalitions from the country when it was actually Iraq.
In what was billed as a major foreign policy speech, Biden confuses Iraq and Iran. pic.twitter.com/xMWkRdkq7G

He says it twice too! He needs his meds and afternoon nap.

I wonder if he knows what state he was in when he gave his speech.

Surprised he didn't mistake Iran for Iowa.

Well, they do both start with the letter 'I'.

In Biden’s defense there are four letters in each word. The man has a lot to keep track of. He can’t be expected to follow all these details.

They are only one letter apart. For a guy who doesn’t know where he’s standing, very confusing!!

Biden needs to sniff it to tell the difference.

Isn't confusing Iraq with Iran the reason Solimeani was at the airport?

He also called a mock vote staged by Iranian loyalists that wasn’t a quorum or recognized as an official act of the Iraqi government as “the legislature”

If the Onion reported this, we would all get a good laugh out of it. But this is real, peeps.

it's pathetic….. I'm through mocking him

Democrats don’t care that he’s confused. That way they’ll be able to run things.
— FloraMacMiniz3 (@FMiniz3) January 7, 2020
Liberals don’t care if Biden is a complete moron, or if he’s corrupt.
All they care is that he gets elected and Democrats regain power so they can continue their work to destroy the United States of America.

Eject Joe, simple enough…
— Rick Remitz (@rickremitz) January 7, 2020
Biden- "I don't really want to run for president, but the DNC wants me to. So what if I just keep walking around saying a bunch of incoherent and inappropriate stuff? Will they just let me bow out quietly?"
DNC- "Let's just keep pushing him, what's the worst that could happen?"

I liked it better when he just stuck to hosting The Price is Right.

Somebody help the man: Joe Biden gets the state he’s in wrong (again) as John Kerry sits by awkwardly https://t.co/H0UBd8CpcC
