Joe Biden delivered a variety of gaffes during his recent virtual campaign fundraiser with former President Barack Obama.
Over the course of the online event, the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee attempted to interact with a prerecorded message regarding health care for minorities. After talking over the recording, Biden waited for it to end before trying to ask the speaker if she was an ICU nurse.

Later in the video, he listed several issues, including nuclear proliferation, mass migration and climate change, before referencing an unspecified “cold war.”
“Stop…stop the cold war future that we’re talking about,” he said. “We’re talking about a peaceful cold war…what are we talking about?”
Joe Biden, ladies and gentlemen:
“Stop…stop the…cold…war future that we're talking about, we're talking about a peaceful cold war, what are we talking about”
Watch for Biden’s nonsense.
