With Bernie Sanders quitting (again), Joe Biden is now the presumptive Democratic candidate for president. Pretty scary, considering the man can’t form a simple sentence. He recently got an endorsement from Barack Obama. But even with that bump, he couldn’t stop himself from saying something utterly unacceptable.
Out of all the talent in the country, why oh why did Democrats settle on Joe Biden? It really tells you how depleted of real leaders the Democrat Party is. They started with over 20 candidates fighting for the nomination. But not one of them stood out as a star. They only settled for Joe, after it became clear that radical socialist Bernie Sanders might nab the nomination.
Oh, how they must be regretting that decision, now. By late February, Joe’s campaign was running on fumes. He was out of cash, with just a handful of people attending his events. Even folks like Mayor Pete were raising more money than Biden. But the DNC convinced numerous candidates to drop out, leaving Joe with a clear advantage.
Now, all the left’s hopes are pinned on a man who appears to have serious mental problems. Long before the virus crisis, Joe’s campaign refused to let him speak for more than a few minutes. Not great for a presidential candidate who has a long election season to endure. During the shutdown, Joe has appeared a few times on TV. Even with prepared lines, the man couldn’t talk.
In a recent event, he made matters so much worse. In a moment echoing Hillary Clinton’s “deplorables” remark, Joe slimed millions of Americans.
At a virtual fundraiser Wednesday night, Joe Biden laughed off the possibility of appealing to President Trump’s base — and then directly attacked some Trump voters, drawing comparisons from journalists and the Trump campaign to Hillary Clinton’s infamous “basket of deplorables” moment during the 2016 campaign…
“There are people who support the president because they like the fact that he is engaged in the politics of division,” Biden said. “They really support the notion that, you know, all Mexicans are rapists and all Muslims are bad and… dividing this nation based on ethnicity, race. This is the one [sic] of the few presidents who succeeded by deliberately trying to divide the country, not unite the country.” [Source: Fox News]
I’d argue that Joe’s words were worse than Hillary’s “deplorables” comment. At least she suggested just a portion of Trump’s people were bad. But Joe is condemning Trump himself, saying it’s the president who engages in “politics of division.” Joe accuses the president of saying “all” Mexicans are rapists, “all” Muslims are bad, and dividing the country based on race.
Not once has Trump ever done any of these things. But this is not the first time Joe has blatantly lied about the president. Time and again, he has made bogus and easily debunkable comments about Trump and his administration. Rarely has the mainstream media confronted him over it.
This statement is particularly ugly. Because it ignores the real reason millions of Americans flock to the Trump banner. The president has proven time and again that he puts the well-being of Americans first. He has made good on every last campaign promise to fight for this country. Even during this pandemic, he has done everything in his power to keep Americans safe and bring us back from the brink.
Meanwhile, Sleepy Joe has been hiding in a bunker, reading off prepared notes from his handlers. Nothing Biden has said during this crisis has helped. More often than not, he just repeats what Trump has already done.
The fact that he’s stooping low to fire the same, tired attacks that the left has used for years is telling. He’s got nothing original or honest to say about Trump. All he can do is lie and insult. Even as his mind slips away.
Democrats should be rethinking oh, so many decisions right about now.
