Former Vice President and potential Democratic 2020 Presidential candidate Joe Biden sought to explain himself in the face of a progressive Twitter mob on Thursday, who were incensed that he had described his Vice Presidential successor Mike Pence as a “decent guy.”
Biden was speaking about Pence’s speech at the annual Munich Security Conference in Nebraska, lamenting that the elitist liberals in attendance were less than thrilled about the American presidency Pence represented. Biden had earlier sought to play to the crowd at the event, describing his own country as an “embarrassment” under Donald Trump’s administration. The former Vice President made a passing reference to Pence being a “decent guy” while invoking his speech bombing with the audience.
Biden had developed somewhat of a professional relationship with Pence while transitioning out of the White House, assisting the incoming Vice President in moving into the Naval Observatory where the holder of the office usually resides.
Commentators and activists on the progressive left took offense to Biden’s passing compliment to Pence, describing it as an insult to LGBT individuals- who are apparently Pence’s mortal enemies, according to progressives such as New York actor Cynthia Nixon. The former candidate for Governor of the Empire State scolded Biden for his reference to Pence as anything but a villain, and Biden responded on Twitter, backing down and correcting his suggestion that Pence was “decent.”
But there is nothing decent about being anti-LGBTQ rights, and that includes the Vice President.

The gaffe could be the latest strike against Biden’s potential 2020 candidacy in the eyes of progressives, who may be inclined to seek a younger and more politically correct candidate. Presumably, Democrats seeking to obtain the support of leftists like Nixon will have no choice other than to approach milquetoast conservatives such as Mike Pence with nothing other than contempt and personal hostility.

Neocon David Frum: Trump one of the “Fattest Presidents Ever”
These guys are all substance, we’re told.
Neoconservative pundit and former Bush administration Iraq War architect David Frum made himself a target of mockery for a personal attack on President Trump’s physical fitness.
Frum claimed on CNN Sunday that “Donald Trump was the oldest president ever, one of the fattest presidents ever, the least physically capable president since Franklin Delano Roosevelt was in a wheelchair.”
The personal attack devolved into hyperbole when Frum claimed Trump “can’t pick up a ball, never mind throw it.”
Trump’s latest medical physical revealed him to be overweight, but claims that he’s the fattest President in history are categorically incorrect. William Taft had the highest BMI (body mass index) of any U.S President, famously being rumored for becoming trapped in a White House bathtub. Analysis of various Presidents shows that Trump’s BMI is generally on par with Presidents Teddy Roosevelt and Zachary Taylor.
In any case, it’s probably not the most newsworthy of stories that a 73-year old man who works constantly is overweight. Trump’s medical documents have consistently painted a picture of a President in good health.
Frum tried to revise his own remarks in a tweet after being mocked on the schoolyard bullying, claiming that it was only fair to talk about Trump’s weight when conservative commentators questioned Hillary Clinton’s health in the 2016 election.

But there’s little to no comparison between Trump’s weight and Hillary’s health concerns. The former Secretary of State was often befit with wheezing fits and had to leave campaign events early appearing extremely disoriented during the 2016 campaign.
The deposed class of neoconservative pundits such as Frum fancies themselves “principled” commentators, yet a mere scratch on the surface shows them to be no more shallow than the most vacuous of smug cultural liberals.
