Joe Biden says he was Vice President after Parkland tragedy; except - he was not
Emma Kinery shared this information on social media showing that Joe Biden had another gaffe. She reported him saying that he was Vice President after the Parkland shooting, except - he was not. The Parkland shooting happened after Joe Biden had already left office. The Parkland shooting happened on February 14, 2018. This was after the 2016 election, which means Donald Trump was President and Mike Pence was Vice President. Biden was out of office almost 1-2 years before the shooting.
Biden's gaffe happened when he was talking to people in Iowa and said to the reporters, “those kids in Parkland came up to see me when I was vice president.” But when they went to Capitol Hill, Biden said, lawmakers were “basically cowering, not wanting to see them. They did not want to face it on camera.” The problem with this tale? The shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., that left 17 dead took place in 2018, more than a year after Biden left the White House." (Slate)
Daniel Politi reported that Biden made this same mistake more than once. Politi stated "there is video of Biden telling the same story but with slightly different words at a forum on gun violence. “I watched what happened when the kids from Parkland marched up to, and I met with them and they went off to up on the Hill and I was vice president they went to the Hill … all those congressmen were like, ‘No, I’m not here. I’m not here.'"

Biden made several other mistakes this week when he allegedly misspoke, or had Freudian slips as some social media users suggested. Biden said "we choose truth over facts" which are basically the same thing. Biden also said "poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids" which comes off as somewhat racist.
