Democrats on the far left (and even some a little closer to the moderate side of the party – if such a thing exists) have been saying for months that 2020 frontrunner Joe Biden is old and out of touch with the progressive movement. We’ve watched these attacks with a mixture of amusement and sympathy, but this week, Biden showed that he’s behind the times in more ways than one. Not only is he failing to take up the socialist mantle that has become the heartbeat of the Democratic Party, he’s also apparently failing to keep up with the news. Because if he’d been paying attention, he would know that President Trump had absolutely nothing to do with the Russians’ so-called interference in the 2016 election. He wouldn’t be out there agreeing with drooling idiots who still make idiotic proclamations like, “Not my President!”
And yet, there he is.
Former Vice President and current Democratic presidential primary frontrunner Joe Biden said “I absolutely agree” with a woman who described herself as having a “very severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome,” and said that Trump “is an illegitimate president.”
“He is an illegitimate president in my mind,” she added. “That’s it. I think all the talk about impeachment and what the Democrats should do, that’s fine, it’s theoretical at this point. Let them investigate, let them subpoena, let them go to the Supreme Court, he’s illegitimate. and my biggest fear is that he’s going to do it again with the help of Vlad, his best pal, and we’re going to be stuck for six more years of this guy. And that is terrifying. It’s terrifying.”
“Would you be my vice presidential candidate?” Biden asked with a laugh, then said “Folks, look, I absolutely agree.”
So, it’s one thing for some mouth-breather to show up at a Biden rally still believing all the nonsense she’s heard for the last two years from Rachel Maddow. That’s to be expected. It’s quite another for a man who wants to be the next president to be “agreeing” with such a woman. Exactly how is Trump an illegitimate president? Did he not win an election? Did not the Mueller report conclude that his campaign had nothing at all to do with Russia’s election activities?
Part of us hoped that Biden would slowly bring the Democratic Party’s ship back to shore. That maybe he would be a calming voice in a sea of absolute insanity. But we guess that was just our own naivete showing. There’s no bringing this ship back; it’s wandered too far out to sea. Biden is just desperately swimming to catch up with it, and it’s a pathetic sight to see.
God, let these cretins lose in a landslide next November.
