Joe Biden got confused again while addressing the International Association of Fire Fighters Legislative Conference in Washington on Monday
The moment of confusion came when Biden was in one of his anecdotes.
“As a kid in Claymont, Delaware — we moved down from Scranton. It used to be a steel town; there’s no steel anymore. There used to be Worth Steel. And I lived in an apartment complex when we moved down. And up the street was a little Catholic high sch- — grade school I went to called Holy Rosary,” Biden said.
“And right across the street was the Claymont Fire Hall, and that was a place where you got buried, you got married, you got — it was — it was the center of the town, for real, not a joke. And a lot of my buddies, we all either became firefighters, cops, or priests. And here I am. I wasn’t qualified for any of them,” Biden added.
Then Biden followed up with remarks that confirmed what he was likely diagnosed with.
“But, folks, it’s been part of my career my whole life,” Biden said. “And I’m not going to go through it all, but you literally — my fire company at home saved my life. I came back from a trip, after being away for a couple of days, and — I had these terrible headaches. I was diagnosed with having a — well, anyway. They had to take the top of my head off a couple times, see if I had a brain,” Biden said confused.
“But I — all kidding aside, what happened was, there was a snowstorm. And I had a cranial aneurysm. And it had to be operated on immediately. And the doc who was going to do it was the best doc that was around — it was down at Walter Reed — because he had operated on so many folks,” he continued.
“And I couldn’t get down. The president — the Republican president offered me to — Marine One to get down, but it couldn’t fly because of the weather. So my fire company got me down in the middle of a snowstorm for a nine-hour operation and saved my life.”
Of course, the critics torched Biden on Twitter:
