We Are Doomed

Both of the Septuagenarian front runners for the major Presidential nominations got the locations of this weekends mass shootings wrong:

President Donald Trump and Democratic 2020 presidential hopeful Joe Biden both got confused in regards to the locations of mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton over the weekend, mentioning inaccurate cities when discussing the violence.

During a Monday address from the White House, Trump, 73, shared condolences for the victims “in Toledo,” apparently mixing up the Ohio city with Dayton, where nine people were killed and dozens more were wounded on Sunday morning.

“May God bless the memory of those who perished in Toledo,” the president said toward the end of his speech. “May God protect them.”

Biden, 76, who previously served as vice president under former President Barack Obama and is currently leading in the Democratic presidential primary polls, made a similar gaffe on Sunday evening while addressing attendants of a fundraiser in California. He referred to the mass shooting as “the tragic events in Houston today and also in Michigan the day before.” Although the politician later corrected his mistake, he seemed to be confusing Houston, which is also in Texas, with El Paso and mixing up Ohio with its fellow midwestern state of Michigan.

It really is remarkable how dysfunctional and corrupt the two parties are.
