Don't Know Much About History
The gaffes just continue to flow from Democratic VP nominee Joe Biden.
Considering that the following clip is only a mere 20 seconds in length, I find it hilarious that you've actually got to ask yourself "Which of his moronic statements is the funniest?"
So, again, I ask... What is the funniest comment?
Was the best part where Biden says that when the stock market crashed in 1929, the president at the time was Franklin Roosevelt; when FDR didn't come into office until 1933? Or was the real knee-slapper of the clip, the part where he says "Roosevelt got on television"?
The gift that keeps on giving, I tell ya.
I guess to really appreciate just how much of a gem this clip is, you truly have to take the video in it's entirety. I mean, the whole point Biden is trying to make is that leaders need to communicate to people, instilling confidence in the public by letting them know the leader knows what he's taking about!
Biden: Part of what a leader does and to instill confidence, is demonstrate that he or she knows what they're taking about and communicates to people, "If you listen to me and follow what I'm suggesting, we can fix this". When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on television and didn't just talk about the, you know, the Princes of Greed, he said, "Look, here's what happened".
Admittedly, this is the only segment I have seen from this interview with Katie Couric. But, my money would be on her not following up these absurd statements, at all.
