In what has to be one of the most awkward moments of the 2020 campaign, Joe Biden walked to the podium for his Hispanic Heritage Month event in Kissimmee, FL on Tuesday and played the song ‚ÄúDespacito‚ÄĚ on his iPhone:

Honest question: WTF is wrong with him? Did his campaign not even bother to Google the English lyrics of the song? Because. . .
Despacito lyrics in English:
I want to breathe in your neck
Let me murmur things in your ear

And it‚Äôs already being turned into a meme. Check out this ‚ÄúF*ck the Police‚ÄĚ version:

But Biden‚Äôs plan to win Florida is even worse than relying on a raunchy Justin Bieber song. He‚Äôs trying the same failed attack that Dems tried in 2018:
Donald Trump not only suggested we sell or trade Puerto Rico ‚ÄĒ but he also left our fellow Americans without the resources they desperately needed after Hurricane Maria. It's unacceptable.
As president, I'll support the island's full recovery and invest in its people and future.

Yeah, how‚Äôd that work out for the now unemployed Bill Nelson and Andrew Gillum?
