For the past few months, it has been one blunder after another for Joe Biden. Between blatantly false claims and messages of division, he is always shooting himself in the foot. Taking a page out of Crooked Hillary’s book, he claimed Thursday that 10-15% of Americans are just bad people.
Sleepy Joe was holding another virtual town hall with black supporters discussing the ongoing issues in the country surrounding racism, George Floyd, and the riots. “The words a president says matter, so when a president stands up and divides people all the time, you’re gonna get the worst of us to come out.” said Biden. It was an ironic precursor to what he said after.
“Do we really think this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don’t think the vast majority of people think that,” Biden continued. “There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there who are just not very good people, but that’s not who we are. The vast majority of the people are decent. We have to appeal to that and we have to unite people…”
Biden never provided specifics on who he thinks the 10-15% of bad Americans are, but we can only assume they include people who don’t plan on voting for Sleepy Joe. While calling for unity, Biden then sent a strong message of division just one sentence later.
Biden’s comments are strikingly similar to Hillary Clinton’s comments on the campaign trail in 2016 when she claimed that half of Trump’s supporters belonged in a “basket of deplorables.” Without any evidence to back up her nonsensical claim, she described Trump supporters: “Racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic, you name it.”
Crooked Hillary tried to walk back her comments, but after she lost the election she abandoned her apologies regarding the deplorables comments. As of now, Joe Biden has not yet apologized for his hateful comments. Even if he does, it wouldn’t be a sincere apology.
Joe Biden has made it clear what he thinks of Trump supporters. To him, they just aren’t real Americans- they’re bad people. If he gets in the White House, the chances of him working for YOU are close to none.
