Pittsburgh, PA — In a speech in Pittsburgh earlier today, Joe Biden seemed to struggle to be able to put the words together about how COVID-19 has taken lives across the country. He seemed to want to say that COVID-19 has taken more lives this year than it has in the past 100 years, which would be impossible. Yet, the words seemed to be such a mess you could barely understand him.
Here are the words he was able to say, “COVID has taken this year, just since the outbreak, has taken more than 100 year, look, here, the lives, it’s just. It’s just, think about it. More lives this year than any other year for the past 100 years.” Here’s a video of his statement.

It’s no secret that Joe Biden has been struggling anytime he attempts to make a statement. Biden has been the king of gaffes, which have seemed to increase in recent weeks. As Biden continues to come out of the basement to attack Trump, Democrats are placing moments like this at the forefront of the election conversation.
As much as they would like to blame President Trump for being crazy, President Trump can complete sentences. President Trump was quick to retweet a video containing the same segment as above. Trump also had this to say.
It seems that some people around Pittsburgh were also impressed that Joe was able to make it out of the basement. One heckler shouted those words at Biden as he made his way out of his vehicle at one of his stops.
