    The article does claim that Joe said there was no vaccine
    upon his taking office. After the flap over AOC's getting to
    jump ahead in line of people at greater risk back in Dec,
    it's odd that he'd be unaware of such an important status.

    The "gaff's"....?

    The gaff's what? A gaff, according to my understanding, is a kind of hook or spar, generally in nautical usage.

    This is all a bit baffling......

    It's not as though any of us thought Biden was
    a rocket scientist anyway. His goofs & lapses
    are no surprise.

    Ok he forgot he got the shot prior to taking office.
    This does not bode well when he is conversing with foreign heads of state; could cause some "misunderstandings".

    Fortunately, he'll have an entourage to guide & correct him.
    He could be effective.

    An interesting observation is that there are those who are critical of Biden and his dialogue, which is fair. But no such concerns were shared when Trump was in office and his... choice of words.

    Trump lied tens of thousands of times and @esmith was silent because he's a member of the trump party and trump being perfect, an do no wrong all praise to god's chosen instrument, trump.

    Personally I don't expect perfect honesty from 99.9999% of humanity including those on my side of the political isle.

    No, I did not defend him the majority of the time because on this forum it would have been a waste of time.
    But now the shoe is on the other foot and I will ding this administration ever chance I get; that is until the weather gets better, or when I'm engrossed in my Xbox. Then I have better things to do than antagonize those that think the current herd of Democrats are untouchable.

    Perhaps you or Fox or OAN can keep a tally of Biden's Gaffs. That way we could compare them to Trump's Lies.

    Fact-Checking President Trump Through His First 100 Days (Published 2017)

    In his first 100 days in office, President Trump has falsely boasted of attracting the largest inaugural crowd ever, cited a nonexistent terrorist attack in Sweden and leveled an unproved accusation that his predecessor spied on him.

    While these inaccuracies have commanded much attention, there has been a steady stream of falsehoods.

    The Times has logged at least one false or misleading claim per day on 91 of his first 99 days (Saturday is Day 100). On five days, Mr. Trump went golfing, and on two he made limited public statements. Here’s an assessment.

    JAN. 20
    “You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement, the likes of which the world has never seen before.”


    JAN. 21
    “I made a speech. I looked out, the field was — it looked like a million, million and a half people.”

    Etc, Etc, Etc. Over 30,000 and counting.

    I would expect nothing less but be prepared for the hypocrisy claims to come fast and heavy.

    As a voter, I would support it! No one plays a Luigi because he sucks.
