Wednesday’s Democratic presidential debate was full of crazy.
But the weirdest part may have come at the very end, when former Vice President Joe Biden confused viewers by suggesting they should go to a website that at the time didn’t exist.
You know what? It’s better if you see it for yourself.
“Go to Joe 3-0-3-3-0, and help me in this fight.”

“Go to Joe 3-0-3-3-0 and help me in this fight,” Biden said.
Perhaps the best part was that Biden was clearly struggling to finish his line, as though he had no better of an idea what he was saying than we did.
In all seriousness, here’s what probably happened.
During their closing statements, multiple Democratic candidates told viewers to check out their campaign websites.
It’s possible Biden meant to tell people to text “Joe” to 30330, but got confused.
Indeed, when The Western Journal texted the word “Joe” to that number, we received an automated response from his campaign.
Still, Twitter users had a field day:

It was a fitting end to a night full of crazy.
