Biden preaches 'decency' and 'dignity' hours after insulting and threatening a voter
Hours after an angry Joe Biden "shushed" one of his female minders and told a union worker in Michigan "you're full of sh**," Biden preached a message of unity and "dignity" in Philadelphia Tuesday night."Tonight we are a step closer to restoring decency, dignity and honor to the White House," Biden said, as he headed for a major victory in Tuesday's primaries.
Instead of telling the farmer he's got it wrong, he growls with ad hominem attacks — "You're a damn liar" — and then attacks the man three times for being fat, failing to answer his question.
The video is non-shareable, but it's a doozy — click here to see it.Biden not only told the man — a Tom Steyer–supporter, as it were — to go vote for someone else on some pipeline disagreement — but poked the guy, palmed the man's chest, and put both mitts to grip the man's jacket openings, something the man remarked would have drawn security if he himself had done that to Biden. In short, Biden got handsy even with a guy he had a problem with, in a bizarre gesture of aggression."I did not expect to be told to leave, to go vote for somebody else, then to be lectured about," Fallon said.
Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared to dismiss voters concerned about his age, saying he didn't want their votes in the 2020 Democratic primary race, clearly unable to offer reassurances about his mental faculties.“I say if they’re concerned, don’t vote for me,” Biden said while speaking to reporters in Keene, New Hampshire.
Second reason he failed had to have been in his string of insults to voters. With the press covering for him, voters took matters into their own hands and asked Biden all about his corrupt deals. Instead of answering them with platitudes, Biden attacked them. He challenged an old fat Iowa farmer to a push-up match, engaging in fat-shaming and other insulting statements. He told another voter to "go vote for someone else." It raised questions: Did Biden want to be there? He seemed to wither like a hothouse protected flower when exposed to actual voters and it was clear he hated them. He lacked the press as a foil for his fight (as Trump did not), so ended up attacking the little guys. Big turnoff. Not a guy you'd want to have a beer with, according to the political-viability estimator. Nobody wants to vote for a mean old man who hates people.
