Joe Biden stumbled over numbers and phrases throughout his second Democratic presidential primary appearance last night, and, at one point, accidentally endorsed one of his primary rivals.

Biden told the audience that if they agree with him, “go to Joe 3-0-3-3-0.” He most likely meant to tell them to text the number 30330, which subscribes supporters to text message Biden campaign updates.

In Biden’s closing remarks he cautioned that “eight more years of Trump will change America in a fundamental way,” despite President Donald Trump being constitutionally limited to one more four-year term after 2020. It was a common flub of a Biden campaign slogan: “Four years of Donald Trump would be an aberration in American history. Eight years will fundamentally change who we are as a nation.”
