Renowned mathematician Joe Biden warned America that 200 MILLION people would die from coronavirus by the time he finished his short speech in Philadelphia. The remark was supposed to hammer at Donald Trump’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic (or the alleged lack thereof) but instead backfired, once again raising concerns over the Democratic presidential candidate’s mental fitness.
“It’s estimated that 200 million people will die, probably by the time I finish this talk,” he announced, waving his arms for emphasis.
Biden’s speech lasted around 20 minutes. The current population of the United States is roughly 330 million. If 200 million Americans died every 20 minutes, that would mean that the entire American population would be wiped out in less than an hour. That’s a little more than a rounding error on his part.
However, Biden was likely referring to the 199,000 Americans who have died of Covid-19 since the pandemic began earlier this year. But this isn’t the first time Biden has mistakenly announced an impending American genocide. Earlier this summer he claimed that more than 120 MILLION Americans had died of Covid-19, overstating by a thousandfold the number of deaths. And back in February he asserted that more than 150 MILLION US citizens had died of gun violence since 2007. Just to reiterate – the nation’s population is still 330 million (and it was 301 million in 2007).
