Imagine if Obama "had been assassinated?": Biden

2020 White House hopeful and former Vice President Joe Biden, known for his gaffes on the campaign trail, asked a town hall audience in Hanover, New Hampshire on Friday: "Imagine if, God forbid, Barack Obama had been assassinated after becoming the de facto nominee.

What would have happened in America?" Gavino Garay has more.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has recently come under scrutiny for a series of political gaffes on the 2020 campaign trail.

And on Friday, he told a town hall at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire this: (SOUNDBITE) (English) 2020 DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE AND FORMER VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN SAYING: "My two political heroes were MLK and Bobby Kennedy.

My senior semester, they were both shot and killed.

Imagine if, God forbid, Barack Obama had been assassinated after becoming the de facto nominee.

What would have happened in America?" He then misstated the number of victims from the May 4, 1970 shootings at Kent State University.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) 2020 DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE AND FORMER VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN SAYING: "You had over 40 kids shot." Ohio National Guard troops shot dead four unarmed people and wounded nine others during a campus protest against the Vietnam War.

Earlier this month, Biden made more apparent misstatements.

During a gun control event in Iowa, he said he met with Parkland shooting survivors when he was "vice president," although he was not at the time.

He had been out of office for more than a year.

Before that, during a Des Moines speech about opportunity in education, he said this: (SOUNDBITE) (English) 2020 DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE AND FORMER VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN SAYING: "We have this notion that somehow if you're poor you cannot do it.

Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids." Before apparently realizing he'd made a mistake.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) 2020 DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE AND FORMER VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN SAYING: "Wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids."

Pandemic Pummels Probability Of POTUS Beating Biden

As the novel coronavirus pandemic grinds the American economy to a pulp, US President Donald Trump's popularity with voters has gone the same way. According to CNN, the national political landscape has clearly and significantly shifted in favor of the Democratic Party's presumptive nominee Joe Biden. Given Trump's inability to wrest control of the crisis, it's unsurprising that his reelection chances have taken a substantial hit. It's not that Trump hasn't tried.

Donald Trump suggests delay in polls, cites mail-in voting 'fraud' l Key details

US President Donald Trump on Thursday asked for the US Elections to be delayed. "With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA," Trump wrote on Twitter. "Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???" Trump said. The date of the presidential election — the Tuesday after the first Monday in November in every fourth year — is enshrined in federal law and would require an act of Congress to change, including agreement from the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives. One Republican governor, Chris Sununu of New Hampshire, quickly shot down Trump's idea: “Make no mistake: the election will happen in New Hampshire on November 3rd. End of story. Our voting system in NH is secure, safe, and reliable. We have done it right 100% of the time for 100 years – this year will be no different."
