When asked by Jake Tapper, host of CNN’s State Of The Union about Biden’s gaffes, Mrs. Biden told the journalist to aim his questions in another direction. “Your husband has been known to make the occasional gaffe…” Tapper said before being cut off by his subject.

“You can’t even go there. After Donald Trump, you cannot even say the word gaffe,” Biden said.

Tapper laughed at her response but pushed on, “I can’t even say the word gaffe?”

“Nope. Done. It’s gone,” she responded, saying the issue is “Over. So over.”

During the socially distanced interview, the potential first lady also shared her response to Trump not being fully committed to a peaceful transition of power if Biden were to win the November election.

“Joe intends on an orderly transition of power,” she said. “This is Donald Trump’s America. This is the chaos and, just going off the cuff with this comment or that comment. No, we go back to Joe Biden. We have calm, we have steady leadership, we don’t have all this chaos in America,” she said.

Mrs. Biden said Joe is prepared for the upcoming presidential debate.

“He’s ready. One of the things I am excited for is when the American people see Joe Biden up there on that stage, they’re going to see what a president looks like, someone who is, like I’m saying, calm, steady, strong, resilient,” she said. “It’s like night and day between the two candidates. And so I can’t wait for the American people to see Joe, to see that statesman up there in front of the American public.”
