No wonder Joe Biden has been gagged in the equivalent of a witness protection program for almost eight years.
When you let crazy Uncle Joe, the original gaffe master, pre-Trump, out of his cage, you know there’s a gaffe coming, but you don’t necessarily think he’s so uncontrolled as to be putting the nation’s security at risk.
But that is exactly what Joe Biden did in his hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania on Monday, during a speech given at a campaign rally in support of Hillary Clinton.
Ironically, during a portion of the rambling speech, filled with his childhood memories that he thinks people are interested in, Biden was making the case that Donald Trump shouldn’t be trusted when it comes to national security issues — that he’s too uninformed and unstable to be trusted with the “nuclear codes.”
Biden then points to a man in the audience, a Secret Service agent no doubt, who he claims is holding the nuclear codes at that very moment.
He actually points out the man holding the nuclear codes!
“There’s a guy that follows me — right back here — has the nuclear codes [as he’s pointing to the man], so God forbid anything happened to the president and I had to make a decision, the codes are with me…he [Trump] is not qualified to know the codes!”
So, it’s not as if this is a national security risk or anything, right?
Seriously, this has to be the worst national security gaffe in American history!
