In 2014, Joe Biden’s – alleged – cognitive decline was something that we could all laugh about.

Heck, even Obama yucked it up when comedian Joel McHale roasted the then Vice President at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Fast forward eight years and insert Joe Biden as President – well, it’s not so funny anymore!

First, let’s watch the clip as Obama and guests chuckle at the expense of then-Vice President Joe Biden, who was not in attendance.

To be fair, Joe Biden is now 79 years old. That’s four years older than Trump and WAY older than most Americans are when they retire.

Why anyone would even want the strenuous job of leading the free world at almost 80 is beyond most people’s comprehension. You could venture a few guesses, but you’d most certainly get a wrist slap for that.

Robin Williams Jokes About Joe Biden In 2009

Biden has long been known for his gaffes. Partly because he’s been in politics for almost five decades. Five!

The man was sworn into the US Senate on January 3, 1973. For those who don’t count math as one their strong suits, that was 49 long years ago.

When you’re in the limelight for that long, you’re primed to become the butt of countless jokes. Biden, to his credit, knows it. He has referred to himself as a “gaffe machine.” 

One such dressing-down came at the hands of the late, great comedian Robin Williams in a comedy routine that makes the rounds on the internet every now and again. All the way back in 2009, sir Robin took aim at Obama’s VP and didn’t hold back.

“There’s always ramblin’ Joe Biden,” Williams told the audience during a stand-up routine. “Joe says s*** that even people with Tourette’s go, ‘No.’”

“Joe is like your uncle who’s on a new drug and hasn’t got the dosage right,” Williams joked.

Late Night Jokes About Biden – Even Stephen Colbert

Once upon a time, Biden’s many and frequent blunders provided endless fodder for late night hosts. Even ultra-liberal Stephen Colbert grilled Biden about being a “gaffe machine” as recently as 2019.

Colbert sets the segment up by running down Biden’s more recent gaffes –

  • You confused News Hampshire with Vermont
  • You said that Bobby Kennedy and MLK were assassinated in the late 70’s
  • You even assured us that you’re not nuts

To his credit, Biden quipped about why he chose to come on the “Jimmy Kimmel Show” in response. That might be the quickest on his feet you’ve seen him in a while … well, unless it was scripted.

Then Colbert asks if Biden feels it’s “fair” or “unfair” for everyone to go after him for his gaffes.

Let the record state that Joe Biden himself said it is not only “fair” but that public figures must accept that it “comes with the territory”.

Biden then attempts to explain away one particularly egregious blunder involving a war story he told while campaigning.

When Biden counters that he doesn’t mess up anything “substantive,” Colbert is quick to remind Biden that he got the military branch, date, act of service, and even the medal wrong.

So, basically everything but the recipient’s name? Wow.

You can watch the exchange for your self in the video clip below.

It’s really something when you take a step back and consider that this is your President of the United States.

No matter your position on his cognitive status, Joe Biden gaffes are inarguably the gift that keeps on giving.
