Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s gaffes, continued over the weekend as Election Day nears.
During a Philadelphia campaign stop on Sunday, Nov. 1, Biden told a crowd that he was wearing a jacket representing the city’s football team. However, his jacket actually bore the logo of the University of Delaware, the Blue Hens.
“I know Philadelphia well, I married a Philly girl, by the way, and by the way, I got my Eagles jacket on,” Biden said.
Among those who highlighted Biden’s mistake was Zack Parkinson, the deputy director of communications for President Donald Trump’s campaign.
“This ‘Eagles’ jacket Biden claims he’s wearing to try and show how much he’s in touch with Pennsylvania? It’s a Delaware Blue Hens jacket,” Parkinson tweeted.

Biden leads President Trump by 6 points among likely voters in Pennsylvania, according to a new survey of the crucial battleground state that could determine the White House race outcome.
Along with Michigan and Wisconsin, Pennsylvania had been carried by Democrats in the presidential election for decades. Still, President Trump narrowly edged Hillary Clinton in all three states in 2016, which helped deliver a victory to the president.
On Saturday, Biden left his supporters confused when he fumbled during another rally in the swing state.
“I’ll lead an effective strategy to mobilize trunalimunumaprzure,” Biden said.
