Biden Throws Hillary Under the Bus: “I Never Thought She was a Great Candidate”

Ouch! I imagine Hillary must be thinking right about now, “Et tu, Brute?” The famous line spoken by Julius Caesar as he was murdered, realizing his close friend was in on it, and asks, “You too, Brutus?”

Joe Biden, former vice president for Barack Obama, has come out to say that he never thought Hillary Clinton was a good candidate…..Although, that is not what he was preaching when she was running against President Donald Trump in the 2016 election. Perhaps he was afraid for his life? This IS the Clintons we are talking about, after all.

According to Fox Business Network reports that Biden stated, “I never thought she was a great candidate. I thought I was a great candidate,” he continued, “No man or woman should announce for the presidency unless they genuinely believe that for that moment in the nation’s history they are the most qualified person to deal with the issues facing the country.”

OUCH! Wait, does this mean he is considering a run for presidency? Lets hope not!

Biden also may have been publicly musing about his own plans. He reportedly said he’s focusing on his family right now, but if it looks like he’s the best person to run, “I may very well do it.”

“Could I? Yes. Would I? Probably no,” Biden said.

Biden still said Clinton would have made a very good president.

But the knock on her fitness as the party’s standard-bearer candidate was startling considering how tirelessly President Obama and other Democratic luminaries campaigned for her last fall.

Clinton has emerged in recent weeks from a period of privacy and reflection to discuss last year’s defeat. In public remarks, she has partly blamed campaign email leaks tied to Russia and former FBI Director James Comey’s decision to revisit her own personal email scandal days before the election, only to close the case again in the final hours.

Can we just throw the old hag into prison already?? That is a Hillary story that I would be THRILLED to report on!
