‘Taken More Than 100 Years’: Biden Bashed Online Over Campaign Speech ‘Coronavirus Blunder’

While some netizens mocked Biden’s address, others speculated about who might end up being in charge if the Democratic candidate gets elected as President of the United States.

US Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has been thrust into the spotlight online due to a particular incident that occurred as he was delivering a speech during a campaign stop at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

During his address, Biden appeared to fumble his words as he was describing the toll the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has taken on the United States.

“COVID has taken this year, just since the outbreak, has taken more than 100 years… Look. Here’s… The lives… It’s just… I mean, think about it”, he said. “More lives this year than any year in the past 100 years”.

This apparent blunder did not escape the watchful eye of Eric Trump, son of the current US President Donald Trump, who tweeted the video featuring the episode in question with a snarky caption.
