80-year-old President Biden repeated the same talking points nearly word-for-word when he spoke at a campaign event this week. He began to tell the story of how he came out of retirement after the 2017 Charlottesville riot that resulted in the killing of a young woman.
“You remember those folks walking out of the fields literally carrying torches, with Nazi swastikas, holding them forward, singing the same vicious, antisemitic bile — the same exact bile — bile that was sung in — in Germany in the early ‘30s," Biden said. "And a young woman was killed. A young woman was killed.”
After he said his family urged him to run for president to oust former President Donald Trump, he started to re-tell the same story. Biden is the oldest sitting president to ever hold office in the United States. He still plans to run for reelection, but there are questions about his cognitive and physical ability to serve a second term in office.
