Joe Biden seems to forget he's running against President Trump during softball interview: 'Four more years of George, uh, George ...'

1 hour 2 minutes ago


Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden had some more slow-pitch softballs lobbed at him during a virtual interview Sunday night conducted by comedian George Lopez and CNN analyst Ana Navarro.

There's a lotta love in the room

The hosts are both vehement haters of President Donald Trump — and they underscored that sentiment by wearing "Biden-Harris" T-shirts. Even Navarro's dog was wearing one.

Certainly it must have been a comforting sight to the former vice president and his wife, Jill Biden, as they sat in their home in Wilmington, Delaware.

Getting things off to a fawning start was Navarro, who asked Jill Biden, "What is it that made you fall in love with Joe Biden?"

Yup, it seemed clear Navarro had zero interest in outdoing Lesley Stahl or Savannah Guthrie.

The mood now quite jovial, next up was Lopez with a question actually related to the election: "If someone is undecided or maybe thinking about not voting, why should they vote, and why should they vote for you?"

'Four more years of George, uh, George, uh, he, uh ...'

Biden then began talking, saying voting is imperative because it's "the most consequential election in a long, long, long time. And the character of the country, in my view, is literally on the ballot. What kind of country are we gonna be?"

Then came yet another apparent case of temporary amnesia for Biden: "Four more years of George, uh, George, uh, he, uh ..."

Jill Biden did a good job of holding it together, and Joe Biden seemed to find a way to weave back to the target, adding that we're going to "find ourselves in a position where if Trump gets elected ... we're gonna be in a different world."

Which George was in his head?

Did Biden have former President George W. Bush in mind during the awkward moment? Bush's father, former President George H.W. Bush? Or did the fact that the question came from Lopez — yet another George — cause confusion?

Commenters on the Trump War Room's tweet about the incident were full of observations:

  • "Did the sign language lady follow his words (George) or was she waiting for the senile old man to correct himself?" one asked.
  • "This dude's just barely hanging on," another noted.
  • "I honestly think he was referring to George Washington," another said.

'A miracle': Doctors said actor would live the rest of his life as a vegetable — if he survived at all. Now, he's starring in a new movie.

1 hour 20 minutes ago


Doctors weren't sure if Luke Benjamin Bernard would make it after a serious car accident in 2013 left him near death. Bernard suffered a severe traumatic brain injury, blood clots on his brain, and an emergency craniotomy and was ailing in the ICU amid a cloud of uncertainty.

Fast-forward to 2020, and Bernard has defied all expectations, telling "The Pure Flix Podcast" about his unlikely story of survival, his harrowing journey to recovery, and his starring role in "The Favorite," a movie now streaming on Pure Flix.

"Medically, you have almost no chance of survival," he said of his initial condition. "It would be a miracle if you lived in vegetative state — a miracle."

Listen to Bernard discuss his miraculous recovery:

Bernard had what medical experts call a GCS (Glasgow Coma Scale) of 3 with dilated and fixed pupils, which generally yields a grim prognosis.

"The doctor ... told [my family], 'I can't tell you what's going to happen with him. You just need to get here right away,'" Bernard recalled, noting that it was clear he might not survive.

Despite facing the unthinkable, Bernard's family refused to give up, turning with fervency to faith and prayer.

"Basically, they did the best thing they could for me ... and the only thing they could have done was — they prayed," he said. "They read scriptures, they sang praise ... at my bedside again and again and again."

The grieving parents firmly believed God would heal their son, and they decided to combat the negative possibilities by intensely appealing to hope.

"[My dad's] mindset was, 'This is a fight — I'm in a fight right now for my son's life and Satan's trying to take my son and I'm not going to let it happen,'" he said, noting that their prayers weren't just for survival, but also for "complete healing."

And the Bernard family got their wish. Against all odds, he fully recovered, and they now attribute it all to God.

"It's just remarkable with God's grace and mercy, with his healing power over me," he said.

And that was only part of the story, as Bernard, who was an actor prior to his accident, later ended up writing and performing in "The Favorite," a touching new film about two rival brothers who face tragedy — a traumatic event that mirrors what happened to Bernard in real life.

The idea and plot line for "The Favorite" came to Bernard as he was recovering from his accident.

"One night I fell into this deep sleep and I had this very vivid dream ... a dream that you feel like you're really there," he recalled.

Bernard said he saw two brothers in that dream who had a car accident, with one of the men facing the same injuries, recovery, and healing that Bernard faced. The dream was so stirring that Bernard started writing what he saw, turning it into a script, and the rest is cinematic history.

Listen to this phenomenal story in its entirely on "The Pure Flix Podcast," and be sure to watch Bernard in "The Favorite." Check out the trailer for the movie below.
