Last night, democrats participated in the fifth debate, vying for the person who will take on President Trump in 2020. And as usual, Joe Biden and his campaign were ready to carry out actions that would earn them idiot awards.
Biden’s campaign accidentally sent out a post-debate email hours BEFORE the debate occurred, and Biden himself claimed support from the “only African American woman” who’s ever been elected to the senate.
Of course, Kamala Harris immediately called him out for that little ‘mix-up.’
Biden’s campaign team appeared to jump the gun, sending out a post-debate-related email at 3:09 p.m., The Hill reporter Niv Elis tweeted.
“Did I make you proud?” the email asked, adding that Biden is “leaving the fifth Democratic debate now.”

“I hope I made you proud out there and I hope I made it clear to the world why our campaign is so important,” the preemptive email reads.
After the mistake, Biden’s campaign sent out a second email apologizing.
“You might have just gotten an email from Joe about just getting off of the debate stage. That’s our bad,” the email stated (emphasis theirs).
“We know Joe is going to make us proud tonight. We were just so excited for it that we accidentally hit send too soon,” the email continued.
It goes on to ask for donations to Biden’s campaign, highlighting that the campaign still has “$90,000 we’ve gotta raise before the debate.” It asks for subscribers to “chip in” and donate to his campaign, ending the email with “Thanks, and sorry again!”
Biden’s email marks another error in a campaign that has been riddled with gaffes. The former vice president has hit back at media outlets for reporting on them, suggesting in September that when they do, it “allows you guys to avoid doing your job.”
The Biden campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.
No surprise there. The campaign and the candidate are so error prone that it’s become a longstanding joke. The only thing more damaging is Biden’s uncontrollable need to stroke and smell women and young girls.
Watch his claims below:
BIDEN: “The only African-American woman that’s ever been elected to the U.S. Senate,” supports me.
HARRIS: “Nope. That’s not true. The other one is here.”#DemDebate
