The political luminary in question? Former Vice President Joe Biden.
However, when he was at the University of South Florida in Tampa this week, the 75-year-old didn’t know where he was.
Biden wrongly identified the city as “Miami” and then, failing to recall “Tampa,” quickly covered with “Florida.”
He was there for a rally for U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum, the Times reported. But his big opportunity to wow the crowd passed him by with his fumble of something as simple as the city’s name.
Biden already has a reputation for gaffes and has shown he doesn’t always know what he is talking about.
Joe Biden is a bona fide idiot who says stupid stuff on a regular basis. Here’s one of my favorites from Crazy Uncle Joe … https://t.co/TL2buoKlb3

And who could forget him jumping on former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s “deplorables” bandwagon when he called supporters of President Donald Trump “the dregs of society“?
With as quick-witted as Trump has proven to be, can you imagine the two in a debate?
The president already has said he hopes he gets to run against Biden in 2020.
In a July interview with CBS News, Trump said of the potential matchup, “I dream about Biden. That’s a dream. Look, Joe Biden ran three times. He never got more than 1 percent, and President (Barack) Obama took him out of the garbage heap, and everybody was shocked that he did. I’d love to have it be Biden.”
Even some of the people who like Biden don’t think it would be a good idea for him to run against Trump.
Biden is a great man, and would do a great job, but he is a bad candidate if we want to win in 2020. Post like this are exactly why we will probably have a second term of trump.

They’re really trying to push Biden 2020 on us on and honestly it’s pissing me off.
Instead of listening to us, the Dems want to make the same mistakes expecting a different result. “Hey, take what we give you or you’re getting Trump again.”

I mean I’ll vote for a ham sandwich in 2020 if it isn’t named Trump, but no enthusiasm for Biden.

It is yet to be seen if Biden will pursue the White House in 2020, but if he does, prepare for entertainment on a grand scale.
