Varney’s message to ‘business royalty’: Stop kissing up to 2020 Dems

Westlake Legal Group varney Varney's message to 'business royalty': Stop kissing up to 2020 Dems fox-news/politics/regulation/business fox-news/opinion fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/fox-nation Fox News Staff fox news fnc/media fnc b293af07-c9d9-5239-922d-2b72cd3fb4d0 article

Fox Business host, Stuart Varney said the Business Roundtable’s attempt to win over 2020 democratic candidates will fail and he questioned their understanding of the “purpose of a corporation,” when they apparently appear to be downplaying the role of shareholders.

“I don’t know whether it was an image polishing effort or a genuine shift by business but I’m really not wild about the statement from the business round table,” said Varney.

According to their website, Business Roundtable is an “association of CEOs of America’s leading companies working to promote a thriving U.S. economy and expanded opportunity for all through sound public policy.” On Monday, they announced the release of a new Statement on the Purpose of a Corporation signed by 181 CEOs who committed to leading their companies “for the benefit of all stakeholders – customers, employees, suppliers, communities and shareholders.”

VARNEY CALLS 2020 DEMS ‘GROSSLY HYPOCRITICAL’

“The American dream is alive, but fraying,” said Jamie Dimon, Chairman, and CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Chairman of Business Roundtable. “Major employers are investing in their workers and communities because they know it is the only way to be successful over the long term. These modernized principles reflect the business community’s unwavering commitment to continue to push for an economy that serves all Americans.”

Varney was quick to call out the association for their failure to prioritize shareholders, listing them last in their list concerning their new “nice” policy.

“The very top echelons from American business issued a statement pledging awareness of social issues,” he said.  “They want companies to be first and foremost, nice. They want the business to be sensitive to customers, employees, suppliers, communities, and almost as an afterthought — shareholders. Maybe we should remind the titans of business that it is shareholders who own the company and it is their money that is at risk,” said the Fox Business host.

VARNEY: HISTORY IS UNFOLDING BEFORE OUR EYES IN HONG KONG

“There is a lot wrong with their ideas,” he continued. “If shareholder capital is diverted outside the company, future performance suffers — and that means all stakeholders suffer, innovation suffers, the competitive ethic suffers. I don’t know about you but I invest in companies that make a lot of money and that’s what we want them to do….and we all have our own personal values….but that’s not what these companies are talking about. They’re engaged in a reversal of corporate priorities. Doesn’t look like profit is job one these days,” he said.

Varney blamed 2020 Democratic candidates Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders as the force that drove the association to release the statement, calling it a “deliberate softening of capitalism’s image.”

“Who knows who wins in 2020? Business is hedging its bets, but I have news for business royalty — no amount of softening and promising to be nice will do any good at all. If the socialists win, you are toast,” Varney warned.

“Get real,” he urged. “Support vigorous capitalism which made America great in the first place.”

Kim Kardashian slammed for Photoshop fail on her foot

Westlake Legal Group Kim-Kardashian Kim Kardashian slammed for Photoshop fail on her foot The Sun fox-news/entertainment/kardashians fox-news/entertainment/events/scandal fox-news/entertainment fnc/entertainment fnc article 6de9186a-1a21-5802-a765-03ed9f2a6309

Kim Kardashian has been accused of a photoshopping blunder as a new promo pic for her perfume collaboration with sister Kylie Jenner seems to show her with six toes.

Fans spotted the mistake yesterday as Kardashianunveiled campaign images for her latest KKW fragrance launch on her Instagram page.

In the stunning pictures, the sisters are wearing one-legged latex bodysuits which cling to their famous curves.

DID KIM KARDASHIAN PHOTOSHOP HER BUTT FOR INSTAGRAM?

Both are carrying one of their lip-shaped fragrance bottles, which come in three different scents: red lips, pink lips and nude lips.

The Kylie Jenner by KKW collection launches on Friday and Kardashian, 38,  has been hyping the collaboration on her social media.

“She’s been wearing my perfumes forever so this collab is extra special because I know how much she loves the process,” Kardashian said of her 22-year-old billionaire sister in an Instagram caption accompanying the latest promo pic.

Finding her perfect scent was impossible to we narrowed it down to her three favorites.”

But unfortunately the mogul siblings, it’s not the fragrances that have got people talking.

As soon as Kardashian dropped the images, fans spotted what looked like a sixth toe on her left foot — and wasted no time pointing it out.

“Why you got 6 toes?” one follower posted underneath the picture.

KIM KARDASHIAN RESPONDS TO BLACKFACE ACCUSATIONS

A second said: “Am i tripping or does Kim have 6 toes? Someone please explain. I’m so confused I counted so many times.”

Even celebrity blogger Perez Hilton weighed in, writing: “That sixth toe is iconic.”But while many felt the extra toe was an example of photoshopping gone wrong, others thought there was a more simple explanation.

“Maybe it’s a bunion,” suggested one, while another claimed it was just an optical illusion.

“It looks like a sixth toe, but it’s not,” explained the keen-eyed observer. “It’s the edge of her foot.”

Regardless of whether someone got a bit too eager with the retouching or not, Kardashian wasn’t letting the criticism bother her.

EXPERTS: KIM KARDASHIAN PHOTOSHOPPED TO LOOK THINNER

She later posted another picture of herself sat atop a pair of giant lips and explained what the different scents smell like.

“Red Lips is an opulent white floral, Pink Lips is a solar floral coconut & Nude Lips is a vanilla amber musk,” she revealed.

And she could hardly contain her excitement about the launch.

“Each scent is so juicy I don’t have any other words,” she wrote. “I can’t wait for you guys to get them on Aug 23.”

Portland residents, business owners want city officials to ‘fix’ homeless problem

In the summer of 2019, Fox News embarked on an ambitious project to chronicle the toll progressive policies have had on the homeless crisis in four West Coast cities: Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Portland, Ore. In each city, we saw a lack of safety, sanitation and civility. Residents, the homeless and advocates say they’ve lost faith in their elected officials’ ability to solve the issue. Most of the cities have thrown hundreds of millions of dollars at the problem only to watch it get worse. This is what we saw in San Francisco. 

He doesn’t know his name and the layers of dirty clothes he’s wearing hang awkwardly off his body. Disheveled and scruffy, the man, who looks like he could be in his 60s, spends most of the day shuffling around the city. He walks up to a woman holding a styrofoam to-go box, snatches it from her and throws it on the ground, spilling bits of rice, chicken and peas on the sidewalk. He laughs for a second but his mood quickly turns. He spots a city worker with a broom and shouts the N-word at him before demanding he cleans up the mess.

“He’s out of his mind,” the worker told Fox News, with a sigh. “Watch. He’ll do it again. He does it every 15 minutes.”

Like Los Angeles and San Francisco, this smaller city to the north has been struggling with a growing homeless crisis that ranks among the worst in the country. Conditions on the ground have gotten so bad that it’s hardening even the most liberal of bleeding hearts.

Shannon, who has grown up in the city, works at a bagel shop on the edge of Chinatown and says while she feels for those suffering on the street, sometimes it’s easier to look away.

“I put blinders on a lot,” she told Fox News. “Like tunnel vision. I choose not to acknowledge it.”

“I put blinders on a lot. Like tunnel vision. I choose not to acknowledge it.”

— Shannon, Portland resident 

Portland’s metropolitan area has swollen to 2.4 million people, a far cry in both size and culture from the rough-and-tumble, river-port boomtown settled by 19th Century lumberjacks and longshoremen. In recent decades, Portland’s embrace of progressive politics and hipster crunchiness has earned it praise, as well as gentle mockery as the Pacific Northwest’s capital of ‘wokeness’ on the TV series Portlandia. In recent weeks, Portland has seen the dark side of political activism, hosting a pair of violent face-offs between Antifa and far-right groups.

Now, rampant homelessness threatens to define Portland, much as it has other West Coast cities where critics say decades of liberal policies, rising housing costs and a generous safety net have created a social problem that can no longer be ignored.

On any given night, thousands of people can be found sleeping on the city’s streets. The latest count, released in August, shows that in 2019 more people were sleeping outside in Multnomah County than at any time in the last decade. Of the 2,037 unsheltered people, nearly 80 percent reported having one or more disabilities.

Rachel Solotaroff, president and CEO of the nonprofit Central City Concerns, says the drivers of homelessness in Portland can be broken into two factors.

“The absence of affordable housing, the absence of meaningful wage jobs, structural racism and bias, interaction with the criminal justice system,” she told Portland Monthly. “Then there’s individual experience, things like serious mental illness, substance use disorder, history of trauma, interaction with the foster care system as a child and low income or poverty. Homelessness is the intersection of those factors.”

As the number of homeless has grown, the calls for solutions have intensified. Some residents Fox News spoke to feel as though officials are letting them down and doing a disservice to those who need the most help. They complain the city’s response to the crisis has been costly, fragmented and ineffective. They say Portland’s policies don’t adequately address mental illness and say officials are kidding themselves if they think they can find an easy fix.

“How safe is it to have mentally ill homeless people walking around on the streets?” resident Naomi Oliver asked Fox News. “Is it better to throw them in jail? Isn’t that what they are doing now?”

“How safe is it to have mentally ill homeless people walking around on the streets? 

— Naomi Oliver, Portland resident 

According to a June report from Disability Rights Oregon, Portland hospitals have been using trespassing laws to remove homeless people, the mentally ill or both. The report analyzed police data on trespass arrests from the summer of 2017 through the summer of 2018 at six Portland hospitals and found when someone is asked to leave a hospital and they don’t, they can be taken to jail. The problem, some say, is that hospitals are calling the cops on homeless people because they don’t want to deal with them.

The state has also come under fire in recent years for moving mentally ill patients out of intense treatment centers and into less restrictive care. Progressives have long argued that civil liberties should come first and locking up someone for too long strips them of their basic rights. Critics say moving them out of treatment too soon or without proper follow-up can trigger a backslide which not only puts them in danger of harming themselves, but others as well.

Whether they are mentally ill, addicted to drugs or have fallen on hard times, the number of homeless on the streets of Portland is taking a toll on how residents and visitors view their safety and businesses run their operations.

Businesses in Portland are beginning to consider pulling out of the city due to the homeless population. (FOX12)

Michael Kirby, manager of the quirky gift shop Boys Fort, estimates his store has taken a 15 percent hit in sales.

“I have had people literally running into my store saying ‘I do not feel safe’ and that’s the thing that flipped my switch,” he told Fox News. “Portland needs to fix this.”

Earlier this year, Kirby said a homeless drug addict “shot up” outside his store.

“He had a needle in his arm and was passed out,” he said. “What could we do? We literally cannot do anything as business owners.”

Kirby said calls to officials haven’t led to many improvements.

“I think the city, state and county need to work together as a cohesive group,” he said. “Right now, it’s oil and water and they don’t mix.”

Dana Highfill, owner of Float North, a flotation therapy center in northeast Portland, told Fox News her store has been vandalized in the past year. There have also been multiple occasions where she’s had to clean up human feces and pick up dirty needles. Like Kirby, Highfill says the situation is getting worse and hurting sales.

“It’s definitely an enormous problem,” she said. “It’s a terrible thing for someone from out of town to see. It’s not a good face for the city.”

“It’s a terrible thing for someone from out of town to see. It’s not a good face for the city.”

— Dana Highfill, owner of Float North

Highfill said she has called the cops numerous times to complain.

“I work really hard and I see people sleeping on the side of the street and it’s extremely frustrating to see and I want something to be done right away,” she said. “But I see the other side of it, too. What is the most effective way to handle the issue? These are people and I feel like they should be treated as such.”

Part of Portland’s problem is that elected officials and experts don’t see eye to eye. The city’s cops, too, have been struggling to define their role as well as how to handle hundreds of complaints.

“The Police Bureau currently does not collect sufficient data to effectively analyze its officers’ interactions with people experiencing homelessness,” an independent report released in July stated.

One thing is for sure — the rise in homelessness dominated the 2018 state and local election cycle. Candidates squared off on camping regulations, street cleanups, sit-lie ordinances and whether to use jails as shelters.

In the past three years, voters in Portland have approved two affordable housing bonds and committed to adding more shelter beds. One of the bond measures would build between 2,400 and 4,000 units of affordable housing in Multnomah, Clackamas and Washington counties for $652.8 million.

Though promising, the moves are by no means a slam dunk. The best residents say they can hope for is trying to prevent the situation from getting worse.

Phish camp in Denver canceled due to plague-stricken prairie dogs

Thousands of people who planned to camp during three days of Phish concerts at a stadium outside Denver will no longer be able to because of concerns that fleas in and around nearby prairie dog burrows could spread the plague.

The Denver Post reports public health officials are still finding infected fleas in fields surrounding Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City. The stadium’s owner decided to ban camping during the concerts over Labor Day weekend, and the band posted the notice on its website Tuesday.

Jamie Foxx reportedly dating Sela Vave, model and singer from Utah

Westlake Legal Group rtr4eze3 Jamie Foxx reportedly dating Sela Vave, model and singer from Utah fox-news/travel/vacation-destinations/los-angeles fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox news fnc/entertainment fnc Danielle Wallace b3a4b104-7d0e-5780-9362-0969c430be5f article

Jamie Foxx is rumored to have a new girlfriend after he and model and singer Sela Vave were photographed leaving a Los Angeles nightclub over the weekend.

Foxx is reportedly helping Vave expand her music career. Vave is a model and singer from Utah who moved to Los Angeles in July, Pop Culture reported. Last month, she and Foxx made a radio appearance together on LA’s Power 106 FM.

JAMIE FOXX AND KATIE HOLMES SPLIT AFTER 6 YEARS TOGETHER: REPORT

“Ever since I could talk. I have one single out on iTunes but we’re working on my debut album,” Vave said, according to Pop Culture.

Vave, who has more than 12,000 followers on Instagram, posted about the radio interview later that day, writing:

“I had the amazing opportunity to be on air @power_106 and talk with @justin_credible @iamjamiefoxx @daveophilly and @jyoungmdk it’s seriously such a blessing to be surrounded by and learn from some of the best in the business. I’m constantly in awe of their talent.”

In an Aug. 9 Instagram post, Vave was also pictured in New York’s Hamptons with Foxx and other celebrities.  She also models and is represented by Talent Management Group, Inc., according to her social media profiles.

“That moment when you realize you’re on stage with @bep @rundmc @iamjamiefoxx and so many other icons while @bonjovi is singing #livingonaprayer #thehamptons were lit!!”

Foxx and Vave were photographed leaving Bootsy Bellows’ nightclub in Los Angeles on Saturday, fueling rumors the “Robin Hood” star’s six-year relationship with Katie Holmes had come to an end.

According to the New York Post, Holmes was overheard at a restaurant discussing Foxx’s outing with friends and revealed that they haven’t been together for months. Neither Foxx nor Holmes have confirmed their split.

“What Jamie does is his business — we haven’t been together for months,” Holmes reportedly said.

Break-up rumors were not new, as Foxx has been has been spotted out and about with other women in previous months. In March, Foxx was spotted exiting Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills with a mysterious woman. According to Us Weekly, the actor stepped out with a mystery blonde just days before his outing with Vave.

Fox News’ Tyler McCarthy contributed to this report.

Arizona State, North Carolina to rely on frosh QBs

There is a trickle-down effect from having true freshman quarterbacks star in the last two national championship games.

Clemson‘s Trevor Lawrence capped his freshman season by leading the Tigers to a blowout of Alabama in last season’s College Football Playoff title game. One year earlier, it was Alabama freshman Tua Tagovailoa coming off the sideline to rally the Crimson Tide to an overtime victory over Georgia.

After seeing true freshmen shine in the postseason, coaches aren’t so hesitant about seeing what a quarterback just out of high school can do at the start of a season.

At least three Power Five programs plan to open the season with a true freshman starting quarterback. Arizona State is going with Jayden Daniels, No. 16 Auburn has selected Bo Nix and Sam Howell is getting the majority of the first-team reps at North Carolina.

Those teams have decided a newcomer has enough potential to make up for any freshman mistakes he might make.

“He’s not the savior, OK,” Arizona State coach Herm Edwards said after announcing Daniels as the starter. “I don’t want anyone to think that. He’s a freshman quarterback, like all freshmen are, and he’s going to do a lot of good things and sometimes he’s going to make some errors.”

Not all the notable freshmen across college football play quarterback, of course. Here’s a rundown of some freshmen who should make an immediate impact.

ARIZONA STATE QB JAYDEN DANIELS

Daniels will become the first Arizona State true freshman quarterback to start a season opener for the Sun Devils, as he won a four-man competition for the job. The 6-foot-3 Daniels was rated as the nation’s No. 2 dual-threat quarterback and No. 35 overall prospect in his class according to composite rankings of recruiting sites compiled by 247Sports. He enrolled at Arizona State early enough to participate in spring practice. Arizona State is doubling down on youth at the quarterback position, as true freshman Joey Yellen opens the season as Daniels’ top backup.

NORTH CAROLINA QB SAM HOWELL

This former top-100 prospect verbally committed to Florida State in April 2018 but selected North Carolina during the December signing period after former Seminoles offensive coordinator Walt Bell left to take over Massachusetts’ program. North Carolina coach Mack Brown announced Sunday that Howell would get most of the first-team reps for the rest of preseason practices. Brown said the 6-foot-1 freshman’s consistency gave him an edge over redshirt freshmen Cade Fortin and Jace Ruder, who also have been competing for the starting quarterback job.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA DE DRAKE JACKSON

Jackson enrolled at USC early and made a highlight-worthy play in the Trojans’ spring showcase by making a one-handed interception and scoring on the play. USC coach Clay Helton said afterward that the 6-4 freshman reminded him of New York Jets defensive lineman and former Trojans star Leonard Williams. Jackson was rated as the No. 56 overall prospect in his class according to the 247Sports Composite.

AUBURN QB BO NIX

Nix is the son of Patrick Nix, who played for Auburn from 1992-95 and was the Tigers’ starting quarterback when they went unbeaten in 1993. He’s the nation’s No. 1 dual-threat quarterback and No. 33 overall prospect in his class according to the 247Sports Composite. He gained over 12,000 career yards and accounted for 161 touchdowns (127 passing, 34 rushing) at Pinson Valley High School to set Alabama state records in both categories. Nix, who is 6-2, beat out redshirt freshman Joey Gatewood for the right to start Auburn’s Aug. 31 season opener with No. 11 Oregon at Arlington, Texas.

LSU CB DEREK STINGLEY JR.

Stingley was the nation’s No. 1 prospect in his class according to Rivals and was rated third according to the 247Sports Composite. He covered LSU’s top receivers and recorded an interception in the spring game. He likely will open the season as a starter and also could contribute as a kick returner. During spring practice, LSU defensive back Kary Vincent called Stingley “a once in a lifetime player to play with and a once in a lifetime player to see.” Stingley is the grandson of former New England Patriots receiver Darryl Stingley, whose NFL career ended after a head-on collision in a preseason game left him paralyzed. Stingley’s father played minor league baseball and Arena Football.

TEXAS RB JORDAN WHITTINGTON

Whittington played wide receiver at Cuero (Texas) High School but moved to running back during spring practice and immediately won praise from coaches and teammates. Texas coach Tom Herman said it’s “one of the most amazing things I’ve seen in my 20-something years coaching is how a guy that’s never played a position before in his life took to it that naturally.” With incumbent starter Keaontay Ingram nursing a bruised knee during training camp, Whittington has had even more of an opportunity to make an impression. He’s the nation’s No. 34 overall prospect in his class according to the 247Sports Composite.

California Highway Patrol on Monday said they rescued a 17-year-old girl who was bound and gagged in the back of a car about an hour north of the border, according to a report.

Police said the teen’s father and sister were attempting to take her from Orange County to Mexico for a drug treatment facility, San Diego Union-Tribune reported. Authorities were alerted by a witness and the car was stopped on Interstate 5 in northern San Diego.

WNBA playoff picture clearing up, Aces, Sun, Mystics clinch

The WNBA playoff picture is slowly coming into focus.

With a few weeks left in the season it seems there are three teams in contention for the coveted double-bye in the postseason. Washington, Connecticut and Las Vegas. They are separated by two games with each having seven left to play.

Washington, which has won six straight, may have the best chance with four home games remaining. The Mystics have been the most consistent team this season and have a one-game lead over the Sun. The Aces are two games back and finish with five of seven on the road. The good news for the Aces is they got back forward A’ja Wilson, who had been sidelined by a sprained ankle for a few weeks.

The Mystics, Sun and Aces have already clinched playoff berths.

Three teams also are in contention for the fourth position in the playoffs, which would earn a bye in the first round. Los Angeles leads that spot with a 15-10 record. The Sparks have six of their final nine games at home where they are 9-2 this season.

Seattle is a game behind Los Angeles and Phoenix is two games back.

Phoenix and Minnesota hold down the final two playoff spots right now. The Lynx have a 3.5 game lead on ninth-place Indiana.

POWER POLL

A look at this week’s WNBA poll:

1. Washington (20-7): The Mystics have won six straight, including the last three without Kristi Toliver who has been dealing with a right knee bruise.

2. Connecticut (19-8): A different Sun player seems to step up each game on offense. Shekinna Stricklen, Alyssa Thomas and Jasmine Thomas took their turns this week.

3. Las Vegas (18-9): With Wilson back, the Aces clinched their first playoff berth since 2014 when they were the San Antonio Stars.

4. Chicago (15-10): The Sky have adjusted to life without Jantel Lavender, who is out after season-ending surgery on her left foot. Chicago has won four of its last six games.

5. Los Angeles (15-10): The Sparks have been the hottest teams since the All-Star Break and have rolled to five consecutive wins.

6. Seattle (15-13): The Storm wilted down the stretch against Connecticut, blowing a seven-point lead in the final 2 minutes. They didn’t have point guard Jordin Canada for that game.

7. Phoenix (13-13): The Mercury went 2-1 without Brittney Griner as she served her three-game suspension. She’s back and Diana Taurasi will soon follow after she serves her one-game penalty for the fight against Dallas making the Mercury a dangerous team down the stretch and in the postseason.

8. Minnesota (13-14): Seimone Augustus is still working her way into playing form after missing most of the season recovering from knee surgery.

9. Dallas (9-18): The Wings saw their season-best three-game winning streak end, but the Wings are definitely one of the most improved teams lately.

10. Indiana (9-17): The Fever have a big game against New York this week which may go a long way in determining the favorite to win the draft lottery. The two teams have identically 15-45 marks over the past two years.

11. New York (8-18): Another swoon to end the season as the Liberty have dropped eight straight. They lost 13 in a row to end last season.

12. Atlanta (5-21): The Dream are currently in the midst of the second-longest skid in franchise history having lost 11 straight. The only worse run was 17 in a row to start the 2008 season.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK

DeWanna Bonner earned player of the week honors after helping Phoenix go 2-1 this week. She averaged 24.7 points, 9.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists for the Mercury. Other players receiving votes included Arike Ogunbowale of Dallas, Elena Delle Donne of Washington, Liz Cambage of Laz Vegas and Jasmine Thomas of Connecticut.

3-POINT BARRAGE

Washington hit 18 3-pointers against Indiana on Sunday to set a new WNBA mark, surpassing the previous record of 17 set by Seattle last season. The Mystics, who had 107 points in the win, got four 3s from Aerial Powers and Ariel Atkins. The team hit six consecutive 3s during one stretch.

GAME OF THE WEEK

Las Vegas at Connecticut, Friday. This game could go a long way in determining who gets the second seed. The two teams have split their contests this season and the winner of this game will hold the tiebreaker.

In latest gaffe, Biden places King, Kennedy assassinations in ‘the late ’70s’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6074913399001_6074918213001-vs In latest gaffe, Biden places King, Kennedy assassinations in ‘the late ’70s’ fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox news fnc/politics fnc Dom Calicchio article a67ba8e5-83ab-56c0-b49e-0176b79a6c3a

They say if you can remember the 1960s, you probably weren’t there.

Well, Joe Biden missed by about a decade Tuesday evening when he mentioned two significant events of the 1960s: the assassinations of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Sen. Robert F. Kennedy.

The gaffe came during a speech in Iowa, while the 76-year-old Biden was comparing the years of his young adulthood to the current day.

GAFFE-PRONE BIDEN SHOULDN’T BE CLOISTERED, OBAMA AIDE SAYS: ‘HE EITHER CAN CUT IT OR HE CAN’T’

“Just like in my generation, when I got out of school, when Bobby Kennedy and Dr. King had been assassinated in the ’70s, the late ’70s when I got engaged … ,” Biden recalled.

But King and Kennedy were murdered in 1968, about two months apart.

It was just the latest in a series of slip-ups for the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential frontrunner.

Last Friday at a fundraiser in his home state of Delaware, Biden confused Burlington, Iowa, and Burlington, Vt., while trying to remember where he had given a campaign speech. The towns are about 1,100 miles apart.

Earlier this month, Biden said “poor kids” are just as smart as “white kids,” and last weekend he mistakenly said he met with survivors of the February 2018 Parkland, Fla., school shooting while vice president — even though he had left office more than a year before the attack.

He has also confused former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher for Theresa May twice since May.

Biden’s press secretary told CNN the focus on Biden’s blunders is a “press narrative, not a voter narrative.”
