Former Vice President Joe Biden decided to head to Germany to bash America because apparently doing so on U.S. soil just isn’t enough.

According to Biden, the United States is “an embarrassment.”

Speaking on German soil 75 years after the U.S. and its allies prepared for D-Day, Joe Biden described America as “an embarrassment” and its trade policies “self-defeating.”

“The America I see values basic human decency, not snatching children from their parents or turning our back on refugees at our border. Americans know that’s not right,” the former vice president and potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate told the Munich Security Conference. “The American people understand plainly that this makes us an embarrassment. The American people know, overwhelmingly, that it is not right. That it is not who we are.”

Biden, 76, speaking at the annual gathering of foreign policy leaders, didn’t mention Trump by name. But, despite a longstanding tradition of politics “stopping at the water’s edge” and refraining from criticizing a commander-in-chief while on foreign soil, Biden took the opportunity to blast him, even veering into criticism of domestic policy as he launched into what sounded like a stump speech.

WATCH:

Hasn’t anyone told Joe that the economy is thriving, there’s no risk of nuclear war with North Korea, and that minority unemployment is at record lows?

That’s allllll because of President Trump and Republican policies, Joe.

Barack Obama’s VP sure seems to want to run for president against Donald Trump in 2020. He just hasn’t made it completely official yet.

According to Biden, though, he’s the “most qualified person in the country to be president.”

From Fox News:

Former Vice President Joe Biden said he would decide if he’s running for president in 2020 soon. But in the meantime, he’s confident he is up for the job.

Biden: “I think I’m the most qualified person in the country to be president. The issues that we face as a country today are the issues that I’ve worked on my whole life.

Biden, 76, was at the University of Montana in Missoula Monday to promote his book, “Promise Me, Dad.” He said he would rely on his family to help him decide whether he’ll run for president in 2020.

No one doubts what I say; the problem is I sometimes say all that I mean. The question is what kind of nation are we becoming?

While campaigning for Democrat Senator Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota, Biden suggested her opponent, Rep. Kevin Cramer, be beat up.

Biden noted: “As my brother, who loves to use lines from movies, a John Wayne movie, there’s a good line in a movie, a John Wayne movie where the Indian chief turns to John Wayne and says ‘this is a lying dog-faced pony soldier.'”

He continued: “Well, let me tell ya, these guys are [inaudible], they just stand up, flat out, stand up and say things that are absolutely mind-boggling,” Biden continued. “I love this one on trade, this I love, and by the way, I told you I come from an agricultural state, I don’t know how you can possibly get elected in an agricultural state with the things he is saying.”

While campaigning for Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson and gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum in Florida, Biden thought he was in Miami, thanking the crowd.

Joe wasn’t in Miami.

In fact, he was 280 miles from Miami.

Al Sharpton’s Failed 2004 Campaign For President Is Still Close To $1M In Debt

Published

on

Rev. Al Sharpton once ran for president — hilarious, right? — back in 2004 and his presidential campaign was a complete and total disaster. How much of a disaster was it? Well, it’s been fifteen years since he ran the campaign and it’s still $900,000 in debt. Of course, Sharpton also hasn’t paid off his massive tax debts in a very long time, so perhaps the notion that this particular race baiting individual doesn’t pay his bills isn’t all that surprising. Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner: “I have asked Andrew Rivera, the finance chair of my 2004 campaign, to set up a meeting with the Federal Election Commission so that I can resolve any campaign debts related to Sharpton 2004,” Sharpton told the New York Post over the weekend. “I am willing to work out a settlement for all claims with my own money to the degree that I’m allowed and will raise money directly.” He added, “Even if I am not legally liable for it, I am certainly morally responsible.” Sharpton is not personally on the hook for the money 15 years later. Instead, it’s his campaign committee and specifically his campaign treasurer, Andrew Rivera, who are responsible. Jerri Ann Henry, a consultant with an extensive work history with campaigns and PACS said, “It does reflect poorly on the people at the helm. I have worked for candidates who I know have taken great pains to make sure staff and consultants are taken care of. Frankly, almost a million dollars, that’s a lot of money. Today’s campaigns spend at that level all the time, but that is very significant coming all the way back in 2004.” This isn’t the first time Sharpton’s campaign has run into trouble. He also ran into some problems with the Federal Election…

Bloomberg Claim Of Being Able To ‘Teach Anybody To Be A Farmer’ Resurfaces; It’s Slammed As Being ‘Embarrassingly Ignorant’

Published

on

Democratic presidential candidate and former mayor Michael Bloomberg has been getting raked over the coals for the last few weeks as more and more video footage continues to be unearthed of him saying rather unsavory things that seem to be turning off leftist voters everywhere. First, it was video of him saying rather racist things concerning the Stop and Frisk policy in New York City, then comments about women popped up, then statements about allowing elderly people with cancer to die, and now a comment about him being able to teach anyone to be a farmer. This guy was obviously delusional to even consider a run for president with this kind of stuff in his closet. No amount of campaign spending for commercials is going to save him now. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: A clip of Bloomberg lecturing at Oxford University’s Saïd Business School in 2016 resurfaced over the weekend and sparked outrage from the Left and the Right on Twitter. In the footage, the former New York City mayor said that people need more “gray matter” to do the technological jobs of the Information Age than those in agrarian or industrial societies. “The agrarian society lasted 3,000 years,” he said. “I could teach anybody … to be a farmer. It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, you add water, up comes the corn. “Then we had 300 years of the industrial society. You put the piece of metal on the lathe, you turn the crank in the direction of the arrow, and you can have a job,” Bloomberg continued. The now-presidential candidate went on to distinguish the “information economy” from all preceding time periods. “The information economy is fundamentally different because it’s built around replacing people with…
