Former Vice President Joe Biden mixed up his words during a recent speech in Iowa, and the video is getting a lot of attention.

“My long friend … time friend, and she’s a friend, she’s been my friend, in and out of public life…” he said. (RELATED: ‘There’s An Awful Lot’ Of Somalis Driving Cabs, Says Joe Biden)

The video clip earned over a million views on Twitter, and many users on both the right and left reacted with both laughter and worry.

The 76-year-old has repeatedly had issues with speaking and making gaffes.

This month, he said that “Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids,” adding, “wealthy kids, white kids, Asian kids.”

He also incorrectly claimed that he was still vice president during the 2018 Parkland shooting, and said that Americans need to “choose truth over facts.”

President Trump reportedly mocked Biden for his gaffes and strange statements in February, saying, “Biden was never very smart. He was a terrible student. His gaffes are unbelievable.”

“When I say something that you might think is a gaffe, it’s on purpose; it’s not a gaffe. When Biden says something dumb, it’s because he’s dumb.” (RELATED: Biden: ‘I Think I’m The Most Qualified To Be President’)

Despite his frequent gaffes, Biden continues to lead the race for the Democratic nomination. In Iowa this week, Biden promised to make Trump “feel the pain.”
