2020 Democrat Joe Biden has a tendency to make verbal gaffes when discussing matters of importance; it’s amusing to some people, but deeply problematic for the trajectory of his campaign. To date, the former vice president has slipped up when discussing world leaders, his years of service in the White House, American states, etc.

Biden’s campaign continues working overtime in order to smooth over his blunders, but there’s only so much they can do when their candidate keeps putting his foot in his mouth.
During the fifth Democrat debate, Biden slammed the culture of violence against women; however, his choice of words were tragically ironic and seemingly went over his head, per reports from the Washington Examiner.
Reviewing Biden’s Take on Domestic Violence
When speaking about domestic violence, Biden called for change in society and on university campuses. The former vice president declared that no man has the right to “raise a hand to a woman in anger,” barring self-defense; Biden also said cases where men require physical defense against women “rarely happens.”
However, Biden’s next statements are what caused the most discomfort and even some laughs. The 2020 Democrat declared that in order to halt domestic violence against women, society must keep “punching at it and punching at it.”
Listeners and observers understandably recognized the irony of this terminology; Biden, however, doubled down, professing to the audience that he was “serious.”
Additional Issues Facing the Biden Campaign
Joe Biden’s latest verbal gaffe about domestic violence comes on the heels of controversy regarding his son, Hunter. Earlier this week, Americans learned that Hunter fathered a love child with an Arkansas woman, despite his current marriage and previous denials of paternity.

When the 2020 Democrat was asked about his grandchild, he snapped at the reporter. Biden sarcastically branded him as “classy,” stating that he had no comment about the development regarding Hunter. The former vice president professed that anything regarding his son’s love child is a “private matter.”
