During a speech on Monday, Joe Biden once again called for Americans to “heal and unite” following the meeting of the Electoral College that voted to give him 306 electoral votes, more than the 270 needed to become president. Ever since his apparent victory on election night, Biden is all about unity, tolerance, and bringing people together…
But, see, Biden has a history of being a jerk himself.
The former vice president—now president-elect—has a penchant for snapping at people or reporters that dare to ask him a tough question.
During the 2012 election, he once told a group of black Americans that Mitt Romney wanted to put them “back in chains.”
He worked to sabotage Justice Clarence Thomas during his confirmation hearing by allowing Anita Hill to testify that Thomas had sexually harassed her without being able to provide corroborating evidence.
He also told President Trump to “shut up” and called him a “clown” during the first presidential debate this year.
But Biden is going to be the great uniter? I wouldn’t bank on that.
Joel Pollak, writing for Breitbart, noted that “Biden was one of the Obama administration officials who ‘unmasked’ Michael Flynn, as part of an effort undermine the incoming administration. On the campaign trail in 2019, Biden agreed eagerly with a voter who called Trump an ‘illegitimate president.’ He called Trump a Nazi sympathizer and compared him to Joseph Goebbels and Adolf Hitler. Biden has never apologized for that.”
Last December, Biden called a man a liar for asking him about his son’s dealings with Ukraine. The New York Times reported that Biden “lashed out at a voter who questioned his son’s overseas business dealings at a campaign stop in Iowa. Calling the man a ‘damn liar’ in an unusually heated exchange…
‘You’re a damn liar, man. That’s not true. And no one has ever said that. No one has proved that.’”
During the campaign, Biden called a woman who asked him a question about his lagging campaign a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier.”
What the hell does that even mean?
The Guardian reported, “When Madison Moore, a 21-year-old economics student, asked Biden whether voters could remain confident in his campaign after his poor performance in the Iowa caucuses, Biden asked her if she had ever attended a caucus. When Moore said yes, Biden responded: ‘No you haven’t! You’re a lying, dog-faced pony soldier.’”
Angry Joe has attacked the press as well. NBC’s Savanah Guthrie seems like a nice person and a professional journalist, however, Joe Biden didn’t seem to care when he angrily responded to a tough question she asked him.
Guthrie asked Biden “Do you think it was wrong for [Hunter] to take that position knowing that it was really because that company wanted access to you?”
A fair question, but Sleepy Joe wasn’t a fan. He lashed out at Guthrie instead of answering, saying, “Well that’s not true. You’re saying things—you do not know what you’re talking about.”
Biden claimed his son got asked to be a board member of Burisma Holdings because he was a “bright guy,” not because he was the son of the vice president.
The media keeps pretending that Biden will be a “return to normalcy.” That is a nonsensical claim given Biden’s history of divisive language.
But remember gang, “love trumps hate.”
