When not sniffing women’s hair or nibbling on his wife’s finger, it looks like Creepy Uncle Joe Biden is challenging elderly veterans to feats of physical strength. The former vice president, it appears, does not take too kindly to opposition or any negative reference to his son Hunter and his ties to the Ukraine. During a recent campaign rally in Iowa, Merle Gorman, an 83-year-old Marine veteran, had the audacity to ask the Democratic candidate for an explanation on Hunter’s employment, despite no experience, serving on the board of a Ukrainian gas company while Biden the elder held the second highest office in the land.
Anti-Trumpers practically foam at the mouth whenever the president acts in a way they don’t approve, but when it comes to their Democratic candidates, it’s a whole other ball game. Biden called the veteran a “damn liar” for suggesting a connection between Hunter’s employment and Biden’s position at the White House. Then, when Gorman said the candidate was too old to be running for office, the elderly presidential hopeful called him out in a duel of physical fitness. Angry enough to spit nails, he said:
“You want to check my shape man, let’s do push-ups together here, man. Let’s run. Let’s do whatever you want to do. Let’s take an IQ test. Ok?”
So now one has to wonder: How will Biden work out sensitive deals with powerful foreign leaders? Will he, when challenged, drop to the floor and demand Kim Jong Un match him in pushups? Lord help him (or us) if he called out Russia’s healthy and active president, Vladimir Putin, to best him in a foot race.
Although there was a time when kings and world leaders actually fought in wars to secure their interests, that hasn’t been the practice for a very long time. If we were to have our president fight to the death or participate in a duel to settle matters, we’d have a whole new way of electing our leaders.
But good old Joe thinks he’s the best person to become the next commander and chief simply because he thinks he knows more than anyone else running. Of course, he bases that on his time serving under the Obama administration, but, apparently, he hasn’t learned enough. Challenging elderly veterans and calling them liars isn’t the best tactic in the world, especially given his already colorful character traits.
Biden may be called “creepy” because of his affinity for sniffing hair, touching, and placing kisses on the cheeks of women and little girls, but that adjective can describe a whole lot more of his behavior. Are Dems so blind – and deaf – that they are backing a man who talked about the hairs on his legs turning blond when he gets into a swimming pool and how he likes little children sitting on his lap?
Imagine, if you will, a scene from The Twilight Zone, where President Joe Biden is immersed in critical and highly sensitive peace talks with the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The foreign leader questions Biden on his son’s activity in Ukraine. Biden becomes defensive and agitated, challenging the younger man to a set of pushups. Then, he turns to the NK’s first lady, Ri Sol-ju, a woman whose identity is so secretly guarded, hardly anything is known about her. After caressing her locks and squeezing her shoulders, he then commands the children to sit on his lap.
A shiver-worthy scenario – but not one out of the realm of possibility.
And the left is concerned about Donald Trump?
