The Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has for the second time mistakenly declared he is running for the Senate.
At a campaign speech in Toledo, Ohio, on Monday, Oct. 11, Biden made the gaffe, one of many, raising concerns about his cognitive abilities.“You know, we have to come together. That’s why I’m running as a proud Democrat for the Senate,” said a confident Biden.

In February, Biden also made the same remarks, confusing the Senate with the presidency.
Not long after his recent gaffe about running for the Senate, Biden directed viewers to visit a website, IWill.com/Ohio, to vote for him. That website actually doesn’t exist.

Misreading the teleprompter is also something Biden is becoming expert at, as his blunders continue. On Oct. 9, Biden misread the teleprompter script and calls for a $15 million minimum wage.
Biden also accused Republicans of “packing” the Supreme Court and incorrectly said their efforts to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett was unconstitutional. “Look, the only court-packing is going on right now. It’s going on with the Republicans packing the court now,” Biden told reporters on Saturday, reported Your News.
“The fact is that the only packing going on is this court is being packed now by the Republicans after the vote has already begun,” said Biden. “I’m going to stay focused on it so we don’t take our eyes off the ball here.”
Filling a vacant Supreme Court seat is not packing the court.
According to Article II, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution, President Trump is within his rights to fill a vacant SCOTUS seat and the Senate may vote to confirm.
When a reporter questioned Biden in Wisconsin last month whether he would consider packing the court, Biden replied, “It’s a legitimate question, but let me tell you why I’m not going answer,” Biden said. “Because it will shift the focus. That’s what (Trump) wants, he never wants to talk about the issue at hand and he always tries to change the subject.”
Meanwhile, on Saturday Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris kicked off their first major campaign event together, the “Bus Tour” in Arizona, and local media was shocked to find not one single person showed up to the rally.
“We don’t see people rallying outside, we don’t see signs, or really much of what’s going on, and I’m told by one of the Biden staffers, local staffers, is that they kinda kept the details about the visit as far as the timing and exact locations,” said one reporter according to InfoWars.

“There’s really not much to see…it’s kind of boring out here…so it’s not your typical presidential campaign event,” the reporter said.
