First son Donald Trump Jr. and other prominent Trump supporters like Fox News’ Sean Hannity seized on some glitchy audio to claim Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden committed a gaffe by introducing himself as “Joe Biden’s husband.”
It’s evident even from the short clip being circulated that Biden was saying “I’m Jill Biden’s husband,” without hitting the last consonant, but a slightly longer version of the clip shows that the audio from the video call was glitchy, enhancing that effect.
This is just the latest in a series of attempts to manufacture a gaffe where none existed, an effort that has escalated along with Trump’s slump in the polls.
Biden makes the “I’m Jill’s husband” joke at almost all of his public appearances.

This is ridiculous already. How can they let this guy possibly be the leader of anything let alone the leader of the free world?
These daily mistakes are not gaffes they are a serious issue for someone who could have the nuclear football, they show a lapse of basic reasoning. https://t.co/ksGSfBTabU

Based on this, I’d recommend a hearing test.
Based on how this week you smeared Joe Biden for comforting his grandchildren at their father’s funeral, I’d recommend you find God and reevaluate your entire pathetic, gilded latrine of a life. https://t.co/t4kvpm67uM https://t.co/0Eunu78IvN
