President Trump scoffed at the mention of Biden being his opponent in 2020 and with good reason. Biden’s political career has been uneventful, to say the least. If not for former president Obama selecting him as VP, most people in America wouldn’t even know who he is. That’s exactly Trump’s point in his interview with a CBS host. Take a look.
“Well, I dream, I dream about Biden. That’s a dream,” Trump told anchor Jeff Glor when asked who he thought would be his Democratic opponent. “I’d love to have it be Biden.”
Biden “by himself could never do anything,” Trump said, pointing out that the former senator ran for president twice unsuccessfully. “President Obama took him out of the garbage heap … made him vice president, and he was fine.”
According to The Washington Examiner, President Trump may get his 2020 reelection wish now that former Vice President Joe Biden, the leader in several polls on the Democratic primaries, has set January as his decision date.
“I know I have to make up my mind and I have to do it by January,” Biden said this week in Bogota, Colombia.
Fox News put together an extensive and scorching list of Joe Bidens many blunders. If you get a chance and need a good laugh, I urge you to give it a read. Just some of the list includes ‘shining moments’ like:
— Biden referred to John McCain as “George” during his vice presidential acceptance speech on Aug. 27, 2008, at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Co. “Freudian slip, folks, Freudian slip,” he explained.
— Biden confused army brigades with battalions when speaking about Obama’s plan for sending troops to Afghanistan.
“Or should we trust Barack Obama, who more than a year ago called for sending two additional combat brigades to Afghanistan?”
— During his first campaign rally with Obama as his vice presidential running mate on Aug. 23, 2008, Biden introduced Obama by saying, “A man I’m proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States — Barack America!”
— On Jan. 31, 2007 — the day Biden announced his presidential bid — the Delaware Senator was roundly criticized for calling Obama “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”
