Watch as Joe Biden coughs, shifts what appear to be dentures, during an incoherent answer on Syria:
BIDEN: “I would not have withdrawn the troops and would not have withdrawn the additional thousand troops in Iraq that are in retreat being fired on by Assad’s people and the president of the United States saying if those ISIS folks escape from the prisons they’re in, they’ll only go to Europe and won’t affect us.
It been the most shameful thing any president has done in modern history — excuse me in terms of foreign policy.

The fact of the matter is, I’ve spent thousands of hours in the situations room and spent time in Syria, in Iraq and our commanders across the board, former and present, are ashamed of what’s happening here.
What I would do is I would be making it real clear to Assad that in fact where he’s going to have a problem because Turkey is the real problem here.
And I would be having a real lockdown conversation with Erdogan and letting him know he’s going to pay a heavy price for what he has done. Now pay that price.”
