There’s no getting around it now: Joe Biden is a jerk!
For years, people have said he was a down-to-earth, all-around good guy. It was one of his main selling points as Obama’s VP. Well, maybe that’s how he used to be, but he definitely isn’t anymore. He is a grumpy old man who lashes out at voters who disagree with him and reporters that dare to ask him a question he doesn’t want to answer.
It isn’t just those people he has shown disdain for; the people who volunteer for him are suffering as well. This was clear for all to see after last night’s New Hampshire primaries.
Instead of waiting for the election results to come in and then graciously thanking his supporters for their efforts, Biden packed up and flew straight to South Carolina to address a crowd of supporters in the Palmetto State. Before the New Hampshire results were even published, Biden was already running off to the next campaign stop.
That is a giant middle finger to all the people who volunteered for his campaign in New Hampshire. Biden owes them an apology for his act of disrespect.
Biden is campaigning like a guy who doesn’t want to be president. The only emotion he shows is anger—anger over the fact that he isn’t getting the support he took for granted when he announced his candidacy. He can’t speak in coherent sentences, he isn’t focused, and he cuts himself off and moves to another topic.
No wonder the man is dropping like a rock in the polls.
In all seriousness, I am not trying to play doctor, but I can’t help but wonder if he has the earlier stages of dementia. I have family members that suffer from that condition and this is how they acted in the early stages. I don’t wish dementia on anyone, not even Joe Biden, but his random outbursts and memory issues lend credibility to this speculation.
In 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.’”
Recently, 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.
If Biden is trying to lose this campaign, he is doing a great job.
And if he’s NOT, then it should raise some serious concerns about whether he’s fit for office.
