Former US Vice President, Joe Biden has suffered an embarrassing moment on the campaign trail as he mystifyingly struggled to correctly quote the second paragraph of the country’s Declaration of Independence which says people are created equal by their Creator.
The clip of Biden stumbling over the words immediately went viral and has been viewed millions of times.
This is a direct quote from Joe Biden:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women created by the you know, you know the thing."pic.twitter.com/A0MRpMmIWk

The second paragraph of the United States Declaration of Independence begins: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
However, Biden instead said “We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women created by the you know, you know the thing.”
While some commentators believe Biden simply had a brain-freeze, others think the former Vice President, who is campaigning for the Democratic nomination for 2020, did not want to acknowledge God in his remarks.
