While Joe Biden may be talking about many different things to crowds he appears before?
The media narrative developing in Biden and Trump calling each other names as they skip the primaries and focus to the early general election campaign mode….
Former Vice President Joe Biden reportedly called President Trump a “clown” during remarks in South Carolina on Saturday night and denounced the “ridiculous things” the president says.
“There are so many nicknames that I’m inclined to give this guy,” the Democratic presidential candidate said, according to Bloomberg News. “We could just start with clown.”
“When he says these ridiculous things he says, I mean this, I put my hand up and say, ‘everybody knows who you are’ because they do know,” Biden reportedly told a room of about three dozen supporters.
The president has mocked Biden with the nickname “Sleepy Joe” on Twitter and has reportedly told aides that he considers Biden one of the largest threats to his reelection.Biden has made criticism of Trump central to his candidacy, promoting himself as a foil to the president.
“The only place he has any confidence is in the mud,” Biden said on Saturday night, according to Bloomberg. “The only thing he doesn’t know how to respond to is issues and specifics.”
He also referred to Trump as a “no-good SOB” and recalled saying that he might have “taken him behind the barn and beat the hell out of him” in high school, according to The Associated Press.
“Guess what? I probably shouldn’t have done that,” Biden said. “The presidency is an office that requires dignity and reestablishing respect and standing.”….
