Biden ridiculed for claiming there are ’54 states’: ‘This guy is completely senile’
Conservatives on Twitter have had a blast President Joe BidenThe latest gaffe from Friday night, in which he claimed Democrats campaigned in “54 states” in 2018 in defense of Obamacare.
During his speech Friday night at the “Pennsylvania Democratic Party Reception,” Biden touted his party’s success in protecting the Affordable Care Act from being repealed under former President Donald Trump.
Trump campaigned to replace Obamacare, even though, as Biden argued Friday, Democrats campaigned hard in 2018 to prevent that from happening. In his speech, he warned that the GOP would go after their health care if they won a majority in Congress.
Two-thirds of the way through his address, Biden said, “And, of course, they’re going to try for the 499th time, or whatever the number is — they’re still determined to eliminate Affordable Care Act. And, by the way, if they do, that means — no joke, y’all.”
That’s when he made his latest viral statement. He said: “That’s why we defeated it in 2018 when they tried to do it. We went to 54 states.”
He added, “The reason is that people haven’t realized that the only reason anyone with a pre-existing condition can get health care is because of the Affordable Care Act,” and warned that “these protections will also disappear if The Republicans are getting their way.“
