Open mouth; insert foot. This seems to be Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s modus operandi of late. Obama’s former VP has now claimed that “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.” Really? Thanks for pointing that out; we feel so enlightened. But it does leave one perplexing question that the would-be president needs to answer: If poor kids are just as talented and bright as white kids, what color is their skin? After a brief pause while he listened to the applause from the audience, the racist ring to his words must have sunk in, as he attempted to extract boot from throat by adding “wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids.”
But then, should anyone really be surprised at what is revealed when “Creepy Uncle Joe” speaks? This is a man who says, “I’m called middle-class Joe. It’s not meant as a compliment. It means I’m not sophisticated.” As Liberty Nation’s Sarah Cowgill reported, Biden has “raked in $15.6 million in the scant two years since his departure of Number One Observatory Circle,” making him anything but middle class. Not sophisticated? Well, we can probably all agree that’s a correct assessment.
Mr. Touchy-Feely brought a lot of heat on his brow after several women complained that his determination to invade personal space made them uncomfortable. Like any good politician, he apologized and said he would work at curbing his invasive habits. And then what did Biden do? He complimented a 10-year-old by telling her she was good-looking. During an American Federation of Teachers town hall campaign event, the young girl asked the presidential hopeful a question about the political division in the US. His answer? “I’ll bet you’re as bright as you are good-looking.” But he didn’t stop there. Oh, no. The girl said her favorite subject was journalism, so Uncle Joe decided to help her by taking her to the group of writers and introducing her … all the while resting both of his hands on her shoulders.
The #MeToo movement doesn’t seem to be getting through to Biden. In fact, some have criticized him as being insensitive to others’ feelings about his overzealous touching. At the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers’ conference in Washington, DC, Mr. Biden hugged Lonnie Stephens, the union’s president. No big deal, right? Maybe not, until he told the audience, “I just want you to know I had permission to hug Lonnie. By the way, he gave me permission to touch him.” And the creep factor just intensified.
Cancer has affected nearly everyone in some way or another, including the candidate’s son, who passed away in 2015. However, Biden’s claim that he will cure cancer if elected president is so far-fetched it’s head-shake worthy. “I’ve worked so hard in my career, that I promise you, if I’m elected president you’re gonna see the single most important thing that changes America, we’re gonna cure cancer,” Biden boasted.
Question: Why do you have to become president to do so?
The former VP is not doing himself any favors. As he goes on the war path against the president, bemoaning Donald Trump’s usage of the English language, he fails to see his own image reflected back at him. His “poor kids” comment had many shaking their heads, including Trump, who said, “Look, Joe is not playing with a full deck. He made that comment and I said ‘whoa.’”
Please, Mr. Biden, remove the jokers from that deck before your next deal!
