Former Vice President Joe Biden committed yet another gaffe on the campaign trail Saturday afternoon.
Biden seemed to think he was in Vermont while campaigning in Keene, New Hampshire.
“I’ve been here a number of times. The last time I think was all the way back in 2014, but I’ve been here before that. I love this place. Look, what’s not to like about Vermont in terms of the beauty of it?” Biden said while talking to reporters.
While Biden misremembered the state where he was campaigning, he did get the name of the town right, telling reporters: “I like Keene a lot.”

Biden has produced a steady flow of gaffes on the campaign trail so far — including several gaffes just this month.
The former vice president, who will turn 77-years-old in November, slipped up during a visit to Iowa earlier this month, telling a rally crowd: “We choose truth over facts.” During that same rally, Biden told the crowd that “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”
In another odd moment this month, Biden claimed that he was vice president when the 2018 Parkland school shooting took place. Biden told reporters that “those kids in Parkland came up to see me when I was vice president.”
Biden also stumbled while recalling Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy’s assassinations during an August 20 rally in Iowa. Biden said he remembered the assassinations “in the ’70s, late 70s when I got engaged.” Both events took place in 1968.
Biden’s campaign did not immediately return a request for comment on his latest gaffe.
