Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden told supporters in New Hampshire that he was "not going nuts" after he couldn't remember where he spoke on Dartmouth College's campus last week.
“I just spoke at Dartmouth on health care, at the medical school — or not — I guess it wasn’t actually on the campus because people from the medical school were at the —” Biden said. “I want to be clear, I’m not going nuts. I’m not sure whether it’s a medical school or where the hell I spoke, but it was on the campus.”

When Vice President Joe Biden said “"I want to be clear, I’m not going nuts," it may have been strangest campaign slogan ever. It will be interesting to see how he recovers from planting the notion in voters mind. you could ask if he isn’t going nuts what is he doing?— Newt Gingrich (@newtgingrich) August 26, 2019
The comment comes after months of gaffes on the campaign trail, as well as some head scratching moments when he claimed to have been vice president during events, such as the Parkland shooting, when he was not. These occurrences even prompted his brain surgeon to comment, saying he's "going to vote for the candidate who I am absolutely certain has a brain that is functioning. And that narrows it down to exactly one."
While the 76-year-old is still the frontrunner according to the average of polling on RealClearPolitics, a recent survey showed the Democrat falling behind Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.
