Flashback: ’I’ve Never Had a Gaffe‘ Joe Biden Jokes

News outlets are focusing on the latest gaffe from Vice President Joe Biden who said to a largely African-American audience that the GOP was “going to put y’all back in chains.”

Just over two years ago, the gaffemaster joked that he had “never had a gaffe” in a July 18, 2010 interview with ABC’s Jake Tapper.

Even then, that claim was itself a joke. It came only a few months after his March 23, 2010 announcement that the signing of healthcare law was “a big f---ing deal.”

Other famous gaffes include when Biden asked wheelchair bound Missouri state Sen. Chuck Graham to “stand up, let the people see you,” and when Biden told an Indian American man that “in Delaware…you cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a light Indian accent. I’m not joking.”

The three major networks have repeatedly glossed over Biden's blunders. Brent Bozell, the President of the Media Research Center, described Biden as a "gaffe-a-minute disaster" in a recent column.
