Joe Biden seems to be having a heck of a time during the 2020 democratic primary race.
The aging former Vice President teased the nation for weeks before officially announcing his campaign for the White House, and when he did, he skyrocketed to the very top of the large democratic pile immediately. Some believed that Biden would then simply walk away with the nomination on name recognition and political associations alone.
That has certainly not been the case.
While Biden still holds a respectable lead in national polling, state-by-state stats show the septuagenarian struggling to distance himself from the likes of Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, and Liz Warren. Much of this backsliding has been attributed to his knack for kooky comments and outright gaffes.
Biden’s antics don’t end there however, with the democratic frontrunner now using grade-school insults and reverse psychology in order to shame incumbent republican President Donald Trump.
During an interview with MSNBC, Biden stooped to essentially calling the President a wuss regarding gun laws.
Biden said, “Having assault weapons on the street and magazines carrying multiple bullets is irrational. There is no need for it and your Second Amendment rights are in no way violated.”
He added, “The president has no intestinal fortitude to deal with this. He knows better. His instinct was to say ‘Yeah we are going to do something about guns.’ What has he doing? This is disgraceful. Come on. This is disgraceful whats happening.”
The repeated use of the word “disgraceful” likely purposeful as well, given that the President himself has used the term “disgrace” to repeatedly disparage those who oppose him.
