Serious question: Is Joe Biden okay?
The former vice president made remarks on Thursday in Kenosha that American schools teach that a white man named Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, but that it was actually a black man.
“Why in God’s name don’t we teach history in history classes?” Biden asked, “A black man invented the light bulb. not a white guy named Edison. Okay? There’s so much. Did anybody know?”
"People fear that's, which, that which is different. We gotta, for example, why in God's name don't we teach history in history classes? A black man invented the light bulb, not a white guy named Edison." @JoeBiden spreads a false meme: https://t.co/OI4lIbEAiS pic.twitter.com/XcCPUjgwg1

Edison's invention was created in 1879 and then patented in 1880. Later, Lewis Latimer, a black man, improved the model.
Latimer, an accomplished scholar and inventor, designed a carbon light bulb filament in 1881 and patented it in 1882. According to History.com, his iterative contribution to the technology greatly improved each bulb’s durability:
Latimer, the son of runaway slaves, began work in a patent law firm after serving in the military for the Union during the Civil War. He was recognized for his talent drafting patents and was promoted to head draftsman, where he co-invented an improved bathroom for railroad trains.
His successes would garner him further attention from the the U.S. Electric Lighting Company, putting him at a company in direct competition with Edison, in 1880. While there, Latimer patented a new filament for the light bulb, using carbon instead of more incendiary materials, like bamboo, that were commonly used for filaments. The addition of the carbon filament increased the life span and practicality of light bulbs, which had previously died after just a few days. In 1884, he went on to work with Edison at the Edison Electric Light Company.

Schmidt: ‘Hawaiian Shirt-Clad’ Trump Supporters Want ‘Second Civil War’
MSNBC political analyst Steve Schmidt, who is also part of The Lincoln Project, is now claiming that some Trump supporters are “Hawaiian shirt-clad Civil War fetishists” that want to see a “second Civil War.”
The never-Trumper said, “It’s an ideology now, and it’s taken root. It’s important to understand what it is so we can do something about it. And what it is is an illiberal, autocratic ideology that bout 30 percent of the country, roughly, are enamored with. They are full-on 100 percent committed to the cult of personality that is at the core of Trumpism. A cult of personality built around Donald Trump. When you look at the convention, what you saw was breathtaking lying, utter lawlessness, and the seizure of symbols in the American republic to become partisan totems for Donald Trump’s tribe to make them symbols of authority over the rest of the country.”
