Joe Biden, the longstanding joke of the U.S. Senate, just called you all the “dregs of society” for the crime of having voted for Donald Trump, America. And he still thinks he wants your vote to be president.
Joe Biden was considered the joke of the U.S. Senate for decades. Even John Kerry made fun of old slow Joe Biden. John Kerry. Let that sink in. John Kerry.
Now, you’ll recall that one of the big reasons that Hillary Clinton lost the election in 2016 was that only a few months before election day she insulted half the country by calling us “deplorables.”
Well, here comes slow Joe Biden, seemingly unable to learn the lesson that cost Hillary so much.
The joke of the Senate and former Obama vice president just made the same gaff. Indeed, he made a worse gaff.
Biden just called you all the “dregs of society” for having voted for Trump. Worse, he called you haters, and un-American.
According to Breitbart News:
Former Vice President Joe Biden echoed Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” moment during a Saturday evening speech at the Human Rights Campaign’s annual dinner in Washington, DC, calling President Donald Trump’s supporters “virulent people” and “dregs of society.”
“Despite losing in the courts, and in the court of opinion, these forces of intolerance remain determined to undermine and roll back the progress you all have made,” Biden told dinner attendees Saturday evening.
“This time they—not you—have an ally in the White House. This time they have an ally. They’re a small percentage of the American people—virulent people, some of them the dregs of society,” Biden continued.
Biden then urged the crowd to do what they could to oppose Trump and his administration for promoting “prejudice” under the guise of culture.
“Those who try to excuse this kind of prejudice in the name of culture, I say, ‘Prejudice is prejudice, and humanity is humanity. It is a crime,’” he said. “Our work is not yet done–by any stretch of the imagination. The stakes are much too high.”
This is how much they hate you, America.
