Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden suggested during an interview Thursday that he’d resign as president (assuming he wins the 2020 presidential election) were he to have “a fundamental disagreement” with vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris.

Speaking with CNN’s Jake Tapper for a softball interview, he’d been describing how he’ll handle conflicts with Harris when he blurted out the bizarre remark — and all as he continuously slurred his words and broke every rule of grammar possible.

“It’s a matter of, the thing, we are simpatico on our philosophy of government and simpatico on how we want to attach, approach these issues that we’re facing. And so I don’t have — and when we disagree, it will be just like — so far, it has been just like when Barack and I did,” he said.

It’s in private. She’ll say, I think we should do A, B, C, or D, and I will say, I like A, don’t like B and C. And let’s go, OK. But — and like I told Barack, if I reach something where there’s a fundamental disagreement we have based on a moral principle, I, I’ll, I’ll, I’ll, I’ll develop some disease and say I have to resign.”

What?

Listen, and take note of Harris’s facial movements/expressions:

“We don’t have that — I’m — we haven’t — and we discussed at length our views on foreign policy, on domestic policy, on intelligence. And the great thing is, she has a background in the Senate on intelligence, on the Intelligence Committee,” he continued.

“She has a background in the Senate on a whole range of things that are going to be pertinent to what we have to do. But it’s going to be — I think so much is going to be incoming, Jake. It’s a matter about who, who, who takes what when.”

OK, OK, OK …

The stunningly inarticulate remark triggered the same response as his remark two months ago about putting together “the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics” he said.

At the time, many people assumed Biden had been speaking literally — and that his “organization” would be devoted to committing voter fraud.

Similarly, this time some folks assumed he was signaling that he intends to step down sometime in the future — or perhaps be voluntarily removed via the 25th Amendment — to make way for Harris to become the president.

This line of thinking fits with a persistent theory that Biden wasn’t meant to actually be president. According to the theorists, his job was to serve as a figurehead to drum up votes (given as Harris is unpopular) and then step down once in office.

To hear the theorists say it, “that was the plan all along.”

Look:

The latter claim is 100 percent accurate.

“I view myself as a transition candidate. You got to get more people on the bench that are ready to go in — ‘Put me in coach, I’m ready to play.’ Well, there’s a lot of people that are ready to play, women and men,” Biden reportedly said over the summer.

As for the claim that Harris “was caught on video saying she’ll be the first woman president,” it’s not clear if and when she said this. Moreover, she had been running for the office of the president before Biden won the nomination this past summer.

The CNN interview with Biden came four days after a doctor’s scan confirmed that he’d fractured his right foot while reportedly playing with one of his dogs.

“I’m walking through this little alleyway to get to the bedroom, and I grabbed the ball like this, and he ran, and I was joking running after him to grab his tail. And what happened was he slipped on a throw rug, and I tripped on the rug he slid on,” he said during the interview, describing the moment that had led to the injury.

Listen:

It’s not clear why a home would contain an “alleyway” …
