Former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign trail has been littered with gaffes and controversy, and a new brick in the road that is Campaign 2020 has been laid: confusion over the date of the Allied invasion of France with the date of the Pearl Harbor attacks.
The two World War II events -June 6, 1944 and December 7, 1941, respectively- are somewhat hard to confuse, being so far apart, but that didn’t stop Biden from doing so.
During a live-streamed fundraiser with Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, Biden appeared to switch the June 6 anniversary of Operation Overlord in 1944 with the anniversary of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii in 1941.
According to Fox News, Biden said his home state of Delaware “declared our independence on December the 7th, by the way. And it’s not just D-Day.”
While the Biden campaign claimed the former VP was talking about Delaware Day, no state material refers to the founding holiday as “D-Day.”
Biden’s gaffes are well-documented, with his most glaring one in recent memory claiming that African-American voters “ain’t black” if they can’t decide whether to vote for him or President Trump in November.
