Sad! Joe Biden praises Robert Francis ('Beto') O'Rourke as a 'Latino' qualified to be in his Cabinet

Low-information voters are a disturbing constituency, but an easily deceived front-running low-information candidate for president is terrifying.  You might think the frontrunner for the Democrats' presidential nomination would bestir himself to learn the basic facts about the people he faces as competitors for the Big Prize, but not Joe Biden.  He fell for the illusion that former congressman Robert Francis O'Rourke created by adopting the Spanish-language nickname "Beto" to pander to the Hispanic voters who constitute 82% of the population of El Paso, Texas and disguise his prep school and Ivy League background.

Asked in an interview if he would consider Beto O'Rourke or Julián Castro as a running mate, he responded:

Yes, I would. I would consider either or both of them. Look, I've spoken to each of them and I've spent some time talking to them. My plea to both of them is that they stay engaged. They are talented, talented people. And there are a number of Latinos that are, that have endorsed, our former Secretary of Interior, a whole lot of people who are — I can guarantee you that there's going to be Latinos in my cabinet, I can guarantee there are going to be Latinos in my White House, and both of them are qualified.

The disturbingly confused answer can be found 50 seconds into this video:

I wonder if Biden thinks Elizabeth Warren is a Native American!  Even worse, if Biden is this easily fooled by a former rival for his deepest ambition, what other BS would he fall for?  That Iran wants nuclear weapons only for peaceful use?

It's hard to disagree with President Trump's characterization of Biden half a year ago:
