Joe Biden claimed tonight that he worked with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris Climate Accord.
Except the current Chinese President is Xi Jinping.
Deng Xiapoing left office in 1992 and has been dead for 23 years.
Add it to the list of shit this dude misremembers
Hosni Mubarak, who ruled Egypt for almost 3 decades, died after spending the last years of his life facing charges of financial corruption and collusion in the killing of Egyptian protesters

Here is the full, unedited, frequently bizarre speech that @JoeBiden gave in Charleston, South Carolina where he declares he's running for the United States Senate.
That moment is at 2:43.
It DOES NOT come at a time of him reflecting on his Senate career.
WATCH FOR YOURSELF
I've waited ages to tell people what I think about Bernie's "rape fantasy" essay. Have you read it? It's about how gender roles alienate men and women from each other and themselves. The "rape fantasy" part echoes what women's liberation activists talked about at the time.

Your side, the Contras, raped children & nuns, pillaged & decimated villages, massacred, tortured, skinned men, women & children. It used terrorism as official policy. You should be ashamed to publicly side with sadistic us-backed death squads but you’re too entitled to get that
Holy shit...let’s call it polemical.

I read one of Bloomberg's sexual harassment lawsuits ('98).
These were allegations against Bloomberg––not the company––the man.
∙ Encouraged general degradation of women
∙ Required female applicants to meet sex appeal criteria

@SpeakerPelosi @LeaderHoyer @BarackObama @HillaryClinton @SenSchumer If any other candidate were in #Bernie's position at this stage of the primary, you'd start seeing the party coalesce around them.
Instead, the Dem establishment is trying desperately to stop him.
DO THEY WANT TO DEFEAT TRUMP OR BERNIE?
If we run on class warfare, single payor healthcare or everything for free we will put Trump on a glide path to reelection. The American people want a positive and commonsense vision for our future, based on real solutions not impossible promises.

THAT’S class warfare.
