(Tea Party PAC) – It seems that former Vice President Joe Biden, who is the current Democratic Party presidential nominee, really does have a batch of scrambled eggs for brains. Not only does half the stuff he says during an interview amount to nothing more than a tossed word salad of incoherent babble, but some of his theories and explanations for certain things, like Trump taking Michigan in 2016, are clearly the insane ramblings of a madman.
On Thursday, Biden suggested that the voters in Macomb County, Michigan, decided to leave the Democratic Party high and dry, casting their votes for Donald Trump, because they are all racist. Because any time you don’t support the Democratic Party, that makes you a bigot. Remember that, folks.
In an interview with Jake Tapper of CNN, Biden said that some voters felt “taken for granted,” and speculated that they responded to Trump using a “dog whistle” on race.
From the CNN transcript:
TAPPER: Let’s turn to the 2020 race, and specifically the fact that we’re in Macomb County, Michigan, right now.
This is a county that President Obama and you carried twice, and then President Trump carried by 12 percentage points in 2016.
You’re a son of Scranton. You’re somebody who likes to talk about working class, the middle class. Why do you think so many of these folks turned against the Democratic Party in 2016?
JOE BIDEN (D), PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE: Well, look, I think, number one, a lot of it was taken for granted.
When we were in, I spent a lot of in Macomb County, a lot of time in Detroit. I was given the responsibility of getting it out of its bankruptcy and getting it on its feet. I was the guy that was asked, in the Recovery Act, to make sure we made sure we were in a situation where we saved General Motors and Chrysler.
I come from Claymont. You know Claymont. You’re a Philly guy. Claymont’s a working-class neighborhood. It used to be — have 6,000 steelworkers in Claymont. It shut down, Worth Steel.
But the point is that I think it was the feeling that they were taken for granted. I don’t know that for a fact. And I think that he used that dog whistle on race. Now it’s a bullhorn.
And I think that — look, the neighbors I come from, and I think, presumptuously to say, you come from, people don’t want a handout. They just want a fighting chance: Just give me a shot. I have been looking for a shot.
Biden went on to claim that Trump had “decimated” jobs in the county.
In June, Biden claimed that “10 to 15 percent” of Americans — i.e. some 30 to 45 million citizens — are “not very good people,” implying that they are racists.
Now, I’m not the sharpest tool in the old shed, but if you want to retake a state that flipped red, and you need the voters of a particular county to make that happen, doesn’t it seem sort of counterproductive to insult the folks who live there and accuse them of being a bunch of redneck racists?
That seems like a guaranteed way to ensure those individuals show up to the polls in November and once again pull the lever for Trump. Biden has to be an absolute nightmare for his handlers in the campaign. How many times has this guy shot off his mouth and said something stupid?
Remember the time he said that if you don’t vote for him “you ain’t black?” As if the test of authentic blackness is being a loyal Democrat and not applying critical thinking to issues on an individuals basis.
This guy is just a train wreck.
