President Trump said in an interview with CBS broadcast Thursday that Joe Biden would be his “dream” opponent for his 2020 reelection race.
From the interview:
Well, I dream, I dream about Biden. That’s a dream. Look, Joe Biden ran three times. He never got more than 1 percent and President Obama took him out of the garbage heap, and everybody was shocked that he did. I’d love to have it be Biden. I think I’d like to have any one of those people that we’re talking about…You know, there’s probably – the group of seven or eight right now. I’d really like to – I’d like to run against any one of them, but Biden never by himself could never do anything. President Obama took him, made him vice president and he was fine. But you go back and look at how he succeeded in running, when he ran two or three times, I don’t think he ever break — broke one. He was at the one or less level, 1 percent or less level.
Well, he’s right. Joe Biden has never been able to get any votes for himself outside of Delaware, and his presidential campaigns have, sooner or later, gone down in flames. Left to his own devices, he says so many outlandish things he’d make Trump seem like a Vulcan.
One thing I love here is listening to the leftie Gayle King get her shots in at Trump. You can’t see it in the video above, but she said on the CBS This Morning show:
It’s just so personal and nasty. Do you have to use words like, “Took him out of the trash heap?” That’s what’s so condescending and so hurtful and so painful for people to hear. Its just very undignified language.
Okay, she’s right except, hurtful? Did Biden’s feeling get hurt? Maybe she means the people who love Biden. Aww. Were people’s feelings hurt when Biden said Republicans wanted to put black people back “in chains?” Did Gayle King complain about that?
And just think, in two years, Biden will two years older and be even kookier.
Why do I always feel like journalists are pretending they just heard Trump for the first time. This is how he talks. It’s not great, but it does reflect the directness and honesty about issues and situations that also makes Trump appealing. But if journalists want to attack him, they can always say for the thousandth time that the guy is politically incorrect and very rude.
