Joe Biden is not ready for prime time, at least according to CNN’s Van Jones. Jones is right, but to be honest the entire Dem field is not ready for prime time.
Inexplicably, the Democrats have focused on some very peculiar and unpopular positions to debate – reparations, busing, health care for illegal immigrants…it is as if they want to get crushed by Trump.
How else to explain it? So Joe Biden had to shake things up and took a few swipes at Trump calling him a bully. Enter Trump.
From The Hill: President Trump took aim at former Vice President Joe Biden on Saturday, lambasting the Democratic presidential frontrunner as a “reclamation project,” and accusing him of deserting the U.S. military, law enforcement and health care.
Trump tweeted Saturday morning that “some things are just not salvageable,” before criticizing President Obama — Biden’s former boss — for his administration’s trade policy toward China and for the deficits and debt it created.
“Joe Biden is a reclamation project. Some things are just not salvageable,” Trump tweeted.
“China and other countries that ripped us off for years are begging for him. He deserted our military, our law enforcement and our healthcare. Added more debt than all other Presidents combined. Won’t win!”
The president has attacked Biden frequently since the former vice president officially announced his bid for the presidency earlier this year, often resorting to derisive nicknames such as “Sleepy Joe.”
Biden, meanwhile, has characterized Trump as a schoolyard bully, telling CNN this week that he relished the chance to go toe-to-toe with the president on the debate stage.
“He’s the bully that I knew my whole life. He’s the bully that I’ve always stood up to. He’s the bully that used to make fun when I was a kid that I stutter, and I’d smack him in the mouth,” Biden told CNN in an interview that aired Friday.
