Joe Biden asked his audience in New Hampshire to imagine the assassination of former President Barack Obama.
The comment came during a town hall meeting in New Hampshire on Friday focused on health care. The leader of the Democratic president brought the assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., again, just days after falsely claiming to have been killed in the late 1970s rather than 1968.
"I have a hero who was my dad, but I have two political heroes, Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy, both of whom were shot in my last semester," said Biden, who was Obama's vice president from 2009 to 201
Biden also said he was accused of being gay because he campaigned for women's rights in the 1970s.
"An entire generation has been energized, and finally we have completed the Voting Rights Act Finally, we have revived the Civil Rights Act We were finally in a position to start the women's movement and started to treat women – I remember because in 1972 I was such a big supporter of ERA – to show you how things have changed, thank God. "Well, you know why Biden is for ERA, he's probably gay "No kidding," Biden said referring to the Equal Rights Amendment.
Biden leads the polls in a still overcrowded field of people seeking the Democratic presidential nomination for 2020. But Biden has always been in the last few weeks embarrassing headlines made with a number of gaffes, saying poor kids are "just as smart" as white kids and he's been vice-president in 2018 Mass shootout in Parkland, Florida.
