Trump jabbed Biden for accidentally referencing “Super Thursday” rather than “Super Tuesday” and for mixing up states at times on the campaign trail. The president also claimed that Biden and other Democratic candidates have small crowds, musing at the size of the gatherings of his own supporters at his frequent campaign events.
“Tomorrow, voters in states across the nation for Super Tuesday — not Super Thursday. Oh, he said Super Thursday! You can’t do these things. Can you imagine if I said Super Thursday? I would be over, right? I would be over,” Trump said of Biden.
“He’s constantly naming the wrong state,” the president continued. “Once that happens, you might as well leave the state.”
Trump, who has repeatedly made false or misleading statements and misspelled words on Twitter, said that Biden’s mistakes were “a little scary.”
Trump at one point suggested Biden wouldn’t really be serving as president if he were elected, claiming he would be put “into a home” and that “other people” would perform his duties.
“They’re going to put him into a home, and other people are going to be running the country, and they’re going to be super-left radical crazies,” Trump told the crowd.
Trump often ridicules the Democratic presidential field during speeches at his packed campaign rallies, but Monday saw him making especially pointed attacks at Biden following the former vice president’s decisive victory in South Carolina over the weekend.
