Joe Biden made a brief address, on Saturday in St. Louis, Missouri, Biden, 77, declared:
“If you want a nominee who will bring this party together, who will run a progressive, positive campaign, and turn, turn this primary from a campaign that’s about negative attacks into one that’s about what we’re for — because we cannot get — re-elect — we cannot win this re-election — excuse me. We can only re-elect Donald Trump — if, in fact, we get engaged in this circular firing squad here. Gotta be a positive campaign, so join us.”

Biden also bizarrely described himself as an “O’Biden Bama” Democrat, transposing his name and the name of his old boss.
The baffling remarks led to renewed concerns from both Republicans and left-of-center commentators that Biden may be mentally unfit for the presidency. On Twitter, President Trump jokingly took Biden’s speech as a contorted endorsement.
“I agree with Joe!” Trump wrote, captioning a video of the address that edited out the second part of Biden’s remarks.
