Joe Biden Insults 56 Percent of Voters Who Claim They’re Economically Better Off Under Trump Than Obama

Joe Biden has once again drawn attention for one of his remarks, stating that 56 percent of voters who claim they are in a better economic position under Donald Trump than Barack Obama do not have a good memory and should not even consider voting for him.

The Democratic presidential candidate made the remark during an interview with WKRC Cincinnati reporter Kyle Inskeep following a campaign event.

“Gallup reported last week [that] 56 percent of Americans said that they were better off today than they were four years ago. So why should people who feel that they’re better off today, under the Trump administration, vote for you?” Inskeep asked Biden.

“Well, if they think that, they probably shouldn’t,” Biden answered. “They think — 54 percent of the American people are better off economically today than they were under our administration? Well, their memory is not very good, quite frankly.”

The five-minute interview also discussed Biden’s thoughts on the close nature of the race, his position on packing the Supreme Court, and a potential COVID-19 vaccine.

One can arguably describe Joe Biden’s presidential campaign as not much more than a continual series of gaffes and questionable remarks. This remark isn’t nearly as shocking or reprehensible as Hillary Clinton’s “Deplorables” insult that labeled half the country irredeemable bigots, of course. But any time a presidential candidate negatively paints a majority of the electorate with a broad brush, it should be noted and called out.

“Moderate” Democrat Senator Joe Manchin Wants Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz Removed From the Senate

So much for moderation and unity…

Published

Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.

Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.

Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.

On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.

“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”

According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”

Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.

“I’m totally convinced it was done because of political reasons. This was all politically motivated. This was calculated,” declared Manchin. “I believe that all my colleagues truly made a decision that was politically best for them and expedient for them. It was not what they believed to be true or false.”

Unquestionably, Manchin is an establishment hack through and through. He may have reasonable views on gun policy, in part due to West Virginia’s strong gun culture, but Manchin is still a member of the D.C. swamp. His recent statements demonstrate this. Republican nationalists should relieve him of the burden of holding public office in 2024.
