Women's March leader Linda Sarsour on Sunday expressed concerns about the health of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

Sarsour made reference to Biden's health on Twitter in reaction to a clip of the Democratic frontrunner confusing New Hampshire and Vermont. Biden told reporters on Saturday in Keene, N.H., "I love this place. Look, what's not to like about Vermont in terms of the beauty of it and what a neat town."

Sarsour commented on the clip by saying, "This is actually not funny. It's very sad."

"These can't just be all gaffes," Sarsour tweeted. "People need to be worrying about VP Biden's overall health."

This isn't the first time Sarsour expressed concern over Biden's gaffes. In early July, Sarsour tweeted, "My God. How many gaffes can his campaign handle?" after Biden called Julian Castro "Julio." While Sarsour tweeted in June she will "absolutely vote for him" and knock on doors until her "knuckles bleed" if Biden wins the Democratic nomination, "Don't tell me Biden is the best we can do or that he is the kind of President we deserve."

Biden made a number of other gaffes during the summer on the 2020 campaign trail. Early last week, Biden mistakenly claimed Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy were assassinated in "the late '70s" when they were both killed in 1968.

In early August, Biden referred to former British prime minister Theresa May as Margaret Thatcher and said, "Poor kids are just as bright, just as talented, as white kids." He paused and then quickly added, "wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids."

Biden also falsely claimed that he was vice president during the 2018 Parkland shooting, despite leaving office over a year before the shooting. He would later attempt to defend the gaffe by saying, "I was still called vice president, but it was in '18."
