Did you mean me, Joe? Trump puts the boot in after Jill Biden has to whisper his name under her breath when Joe tells virtual rally: 'We need to stop four more years of George' (but did he mean Bush Snr or Jnr?)
Trump tweeted this morning: 'Joe Biden called me George yesterday. Couldn't remember my name.
'Got some help from the anchor to get him through the interview. The Fake News Cartel is working overtime to cover it up!'
Biden last night appeared to say that 'George' was president, perhaps a reference to George W. (2001-09) or maybe George H.W. (1989-93)
The 77-year-old former VP said we need to avoid 'four more years of George'
When Biden said 'George', his wife Jill said Trump under her breath
Republicans used blunder to once again raise questions about elder statesman's mental capacity
But Democrats pointed out he was speaking to George Lopez who was hosting the virtual rally
Donald Trump has mocked 'Sleepy' Joe Biden for apparently forgetting who was president after the Democrat candidate said 'we need to stop four more years of George.'
Biden was last night addressing a virtual concert when he said: 'Four more years of George, er, George, er, he - we're going to find ourselves in a position where, if Trump gets elected, we're going to be in a different world.'
The 77-year-old appeared to receive a prompt from his wife Jill who was sitting beside him, muttering 'Trump' under her breath.
Hours later President Trump blasted Biden, tweeting: 'Joe Biden called me George yesterday. Couldn't remember my name. Got some help from the anchor to get him through the interview. The Fake News Cartel is working overtime to cover it up!'
Many speculated that Biden was thinking of George W. Bush, president from 2001-09, or perhaps George H.W. who was in office from 1989-93.
Democrats however said that Biden was speaking to George Lopez, one of the hosts of the rally for Latino voters, and whose question he was addressing.
The blunder once again was used by Republicans to raise questions about Biden's mental capacity - a topic Trump has repeatedly referenced in the run-up to the election.
'Who's the president?' Is the line you a doctor would usually ask if you'd had a bang on the head.
The moment was seized upon by Trump War Room, a pro-Trump group which claims to 'punch back 10x harder'.
On social media, people were dismayed.
'Watch his wife saying Trump under her breath 3 times,' said one.
Another remarked: 'The look on Jill's face was like 'come on Joe, get the train back on the tracks...''
Biden and Jill appeared during the star-studded 'I Will Vote Concert' which was headlined by A$AP Ferg, Sara Bareilles, Aloe Blacc, the Black Eyed Peas, Jon Bon Jovi and Cher.
It garnered around 12,000 views and was live-streamed on YouTube.
It comes just two days after the former Vice President said during a campaign video: 'We have put together, I think, the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.'
This too was seized upon by the Trump campaign, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany who tweeted: 'BIDEN ADMITS TO VOTER FRAUD!'
Earlier on Sunday, Biden, in an interview with 60 Minutes, laughed off Trump's attacks on his mental agility.
'Hey, the same guy who thought that the 911 attack was a 7-Eleven attack?' Biden responded.
'He's talking about dementia?
'All I can say to the American people is watch me, is see what I've done, is see what I'm going to do. Look at me. Compare our physical and mental acuity.
'I'm happy to have that comparison.'
He insisted it was Trump - not him - who was losing his grip on reality.
'The way he's handling COVID is just absolutely totally irresponsible,' said Biden.
'He's telling people that we've turned the bend, in one of his recent rallies. Well, he's gone - as my grandpop would say he's gone round the bend. I mean, we are in real trouble.'
However, Biden was unable to walk away from the interview without mangling his data on public schools.
'I can send every single qualified person to a four-year college in their state for $150 billion,' he said.
CBS later said that Biden's advisers later told them he misspoke, and meant to say double that.
The Trump campaign has in recent months turned up the heat on its claim that Biden's mental capacity is fading.
At rallies the president has repeatedly stated that Biden is 'gonzo.'
'He's gonzo folks. He's gone. He has no idea, and the people that are running that party are radical far-left maniacs.' Trump told a rally in Arizona earlier this month.
The President has joked about Biden ending up in a care home during his tenure and the office being taken over by his running-mate Kamala Harris.
A campaign advert in August asked: 'Did something happen to Joe Biden?'
Biden, who would be the oldest ever president, has denied the accusations against him saying that he is 'constantly tested.'
In June he said: 'Look, all you gotta do is watch me, and I can hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I'm running against.'
During Biden's 60 Minutes interview, he was able to laugh off the 'dementia' jibe as well as lash Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani for his 'smear campaign' against his son Hunter.
Biden spoke out about the laptop scandal and the emails that have been found detailing plans for business ventures involving China and Ukraine.
Biden said he believed that Giuliani, who has touted the laptop around various media outlets seeking publicity, was being used by Russia.
'From what I've read and know the intelligence community warned the president that Giuliani was being fed disinformation from the Russians,' Biden said.
'And we also know that Putin is trying very hard to spread disinformation about Joe Biden. And so when you put the combination of Russia, Giuliani, the president, together - it's just what it is.
'It's a smear campaign because he has nothing he wants to talk about. What is he running on? What is he running on?'
The former VP also spoke with unusual clarity about whether he would change the makeup of the Supreme Court, in the light of Amy Coney Barrett's expected nomination and the conservative bent the court will take.
Biden, who was strongly criticized by his opponents for saying that voters would have to wait until after the election to see his plans for the Supreme Court, said in Sunday's episode that he would convene a panel of Democrats, Republicans and legal scholars to explore all the options.
Norah O'Donnell also asked him about why he had chosen Kamala Harris for vice president, which is made 'all the more important' because of his age.
Biden replied: 'Number one her values, number two she's smart as a devil, number three she has a backbone like a ramrod, number four she's really principled, number five she has had significant experience in the largest state in the union, running a justice department that's only second in size to the United States' Justice Department. And obviously I hope that never becomes a question.'
Biden's running mate, Senator Harris was also asked questions and said that she believed Trump was racist, and that his attacks on her were 'predictable, sadly.'
Harris said that she hoped her role, if elected, will inspire future generations.
She also denied that she disagreed with Biden on healthcare policy and the Green New Deal, insisting that his platform was her platform.
'I would not have joined the ticket if I didn't support what Joe was proposing,' she said.
Viewers on Sunday night also watched Trump walk out of his 60 Minutes interview after he became irritated by the questions.
The president had already jumped the gun by sharing the entire clip on his Facebook page Thursday, before CBS aired his interview with Lesley Stahl last night.
Stahl, in her introduction to Sunday's show, explained: 'We had prepared to talk about the many issues and questions facing the president, but in what has become an all-too-public dust-up, the conversation was cut short.'
'It began politely, but ended regrettably, contentiously,' she said.
On Sunday night viewers saw what happened once Trump's camera stopped rolling, and the president walked off.
Stahl remained in her chair, looking surprised.
'I've got a lot of questions I didn't ask,' Stahl says as the president walks out past the cameras.
Kayleigh McEnany, the White House press secretary, then enters with a weighty folder which she describes as 'his health care plan'.
Stahl comments, in a voiceover: 'It was heavy. Filled with executive orders, congressional initiatives, but no comprehensive health plan.'
Stahl then asked McEnany: 'And the president's not coming back?'
McEnany replies: 'The president's given you a lot of time.'
Mike Pence, the vice president, was then in the hot seat.
He told Stahl that Trump was not interested in 'back and forth with the media'.
'Lesley, President Trump is a man who speaks his mind,' Pence said.
'I think it's one of the great strengths that he's had as president of the United States, is that the American people always know where they stand.
'And he's always ready. And the American people know that - in this time, it's, it's - it's less about the back and forth with the media, and it's - it's really more about how we bring this country all the way back.'
Trump was due to return, to film a segment in the Rose Garden with Pence, but he did not come back.
Trump bristled immediately when Stahl started out the sit-down by asking him: 'Are you ready for some tough questions?'
He brought that up directly before he cut the interview short.
'Excuse me. Lesley you started with your first statement was are you ready for tough questions. That's no way to talk,' Trump told Stahl.
He also pointed out that Democratic nominee Joe Biden gets 'softball after softball.'
'I've seen all his interviews, he's never been asked a question that's hard,' Trump said.
The president also pushed that the '60 Minutes' interview wasn't supposed to be hard.
'When you set up the interview you didn't say that,' he told Stahl. 'You said, 'Oh, let's have a little interview.' And here's what I do say, you don't ask Joe Biden. I saw your interview with Joe Biden.'
Stahl interjected, 'I've never done a Joe Biden.'
Trump called it 'a joke.'
Biden, who Trump accused of going into hiding last week, is travelling to Georgia this week to make a late stand in a state that hasn't gone blue since 1992.
Biden's campaign says he will be in Warm Springs, Georgia, on Tuesday, the first time he's visited the state since clinching the Democratic presidential nomination.
Senator Harris, made several stops across Atlanta on Friday.
Biden's campaign has for months said it is focusing on re-establishing the Democratic 'blue wall' in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania that crumbled when all three went for President Donald Trump in 2016.
But Biden's top advisers have been equally bullish about 'expanding the electoral map' to traditionally Republican states like Arizona and Georgia.
Biden visited Arizona earlier this month. His Georgia swing just one week before Election Day indicates he sees what he calls the Trump administration's bungled federal response to the coronavirus pandemic as a chance to gain more ground.

tw will defend Biden, continuing to claim he's more suitable for the job of president
| Tue Oct 27 00:22:11|
pillz , TW would do that no matter what. He is the most Trump obsessed person I've ever met onlime or in real life.
| Tue Oct 27 00:48:38|
omg, Trump said "world trade" instead of "world health"
yes Biden is more suitable... a dead person is more suitable, Trump is actively harmful on multiple fronts
| Tue Oct 27 00:50:07|
omg, Trump just said Biden will give the biggest tax cut in the history of the country
| Tue Oct 27 00:56:51|
Is TW Alex Rupar?
| Tue Oct 27 00:58:52|
no, he just provides convenient clips of Trump rallies
| Tue Oct 27 01:08:31|
also, recently Trump was calling one of his most loyal followers & original capos Matt Gaetz by the name "Rick Gates" (who was one of the many convicted criminals on his campaign team)
Gaetz is the cultist who said he will never love another president
| Tue Oct 27 14:02:35|
yet another deliberately deceptive video by Team Trump
Biden is quoting Pope Francis... they know he's doing it (whomever clipped the video obviously heard the whole thing)
they've done this before
deliberate deception is a staple of team Trump
why would you vote for that?
| Tue Oct 27 14:48:35|
the wanderer Tue Oct 27 00:58:52
no, he just provides convenient clips of Trump rallies"
Aka he selectively takes certain soundbites and uses his commentary to put the worst possible spin on him.
Also, that's apparently all he does in life; he just watches Trump nonstop all day. Kinda sad.
| Tue Oct 27 14:49:55|
And his face just screams soyboy.
| Tue Oct 27 14:56:46|
not deliberately deceptive spin... (or any spin usually)
unlike team Trump which prefers deliberate deception
not hard to make Trump look bad using his own words, i quote him completely often
