Biden, who’s a loser — I mean, look, Joe never got more than 1%, except Obama took him off the trash heap. But I heard, you know, his whole campaign is to hit Trump. Look, when a man has to mention my name 76 times in a speech, that means he’s in trouble. – President Donald J. Trump, 6/11/19
FoxNews.com reports that
President Trump tore into Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden as “Sleepy Joe” while in Iowa on Tuesday and said the former vice president reminds him of running against “Crooked Hillary” in 2016.
On the other side of the state, at about the same time, Biden said the Trump presidency “has got to end,” after labeling the president an “existential threat to America” earlier in the day.
In what could be a preview of next year’s general election campaign for the White House, both Biden and Trump took repeated, personal swipes at each other during dueling political events in different Iowa communities on Tuesday afternoon.
“He was someplace in Iowa today and he said my name so many times, people couldn’t stand it anymore,” Trump said of Biden during a speech on renewable energy in Council Bluffs.
The president hit Biden for visiting Iowa “once every two weeks,” mocking the former vice president for repeatedly mentioning his name.
“That reminds me of Crooked Hillary,” Trump said. “She did the same thing.”
Meanwhile, Biden employed a similar line of attack.
“One of my staff showed me that apparently he had my speech on — on Air Force One,” Biden said at Iowa Wesleyan University in Mount Pleasant. “I guess he’s really fascinated with me. I find it fascinating.”
Biden ripped into Trump for recently attacking critics while in Normandy to celebrate the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
“And he’s tweeting about Bette Midler. No. I’m not joking. He’s making personal attacks on Nancy Pelosi, who’s there with him. He embraces dictators like Kim Jong Un, who’s a damn murderer and a thug,” Biden said.
The showdown between Biden and Trump began earlier in the day. In a free-ranging back-and-forth with reporters on the White House lawn before departing for Iowa, Trump ripped into Biden as “loser” and claimed he wants to run against the former vice president because “I think he’s the weakest mentally.”
Meanwhile, Biden, the frontrunner in the Democratic race, called the president an “existential threat to America” during a community event in Ottumwa, saying, “This is a guy who does everything to separate and frighten people.”
The back and forth is poised to continue through Tuesday, as Biden is set to hold a community event in Davenport at the same time Trump gives a speech at a state Republican Party dinner.
In Davenport, Biden is expected to use the speech to blast the Republican president for threatening tariffs on global trading partners.
According to excerpts released ahead of his speech, Biden will argue that “America’s farmers have been crushed by his tariff war with China. No one knows that better than Iowa.”
Biden will add that Trump “thinks he’s being tough. Well, it’s easy to be tough when someone else is feeling the pain.”
Spotlighting the anxiety he said farmers are feeling, Biden will ask “how many have had to stare at the ceiling at night wondering how they’re going to make it? How many sleepless nights do you think Trump has had over what he’s doing to America’s farmers?”
The president on Friday dropped the latest tariff threat as he announced that the U.S. and Mexico had reached a deal to stem the flow of migrants.
Amid criticism from Democrats, the president tweeted Monday that a “very important” part of the agreement with Mexico would be “revealed in the not too distant future.”
And, in an interview with CNBC, he said, “If we didn’t have tariffs we wouldn’t have made a deal with Mexico.”
“This is something the U.S. has been trying to get for over 20 years with Mexico. As soon as I put tariffs on the table it was done — it took two days,” he said.
The former vice president’s trip – his second to Iowa since launching his 2020 presidential campaign in late April – comes two days after he skipped the first major cattle call of the year in Iowa.
Biden took some incoming fire for missing the Iowa Democratic Party’s Hall of Fame dinner, which was held Sunday in Cedar Rapids but explained Tuesday that he prioritized attending his granddaughter’s graduation in Washington.
Sleepy Joe, you have the nerve to call President Trump an “existential threat to America”?
Are you so old and feeble that you do not remember how much damage to our country that you and your Former Boss, Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) did?
A while back, I wrote a blog describing what I would do, if “I Were a Socialist U.S. President”. I added to it, as things further spiraled out of control during the Obama Administration.
Perhaps, “Sleepy Joe”, this will help to jog your memory.
**In respectful honor and memory of the late, great Paul Harvey, an American Original, (September 4, 1918 – February 28, 2009
“If I were a Socialist United States President…
I would begin to plant seeds during my Inaugural Address, concerning the disparity between the Haves and the Have-nots. In other words, I would intentionally begin to divide the nation through the use of Racial Animus and Class Warfare.
Also, during that address I would push for a National Healthcare System, regardless of the fact that such a monstrous entity has never worked, anywhere it has been tried.
I would preach about hope and change, but like all Marxists, I would be hoping to bring subjugation and looking to “radically change” a nation, all in the name of “Fairness and Equality”.
The first thing I would do, when I took office, would be to send money around the world, to finance abortions. In this way, I would show the world that there is a new boss in the United States, who wants to radically change the Shining City on a Hill into just another country.
Next, I would push for the passage of an outrageous spending bill that would actually be a cover for paying back political favors.
I would invite the already-sycophantic Main Stream Media to come to the White House for closed-door meetings, where I would tell them to “get with the program”, if they wanted to receive any news stories from this White House at all.
I would make speeches about how marvelous a Government-run National Healthcare System would be, making hollow promises like,
If you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance. if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.
…all the while knowing that I was lying my hindquarters off.
Once I got my slaves in the Congress to pass this nation-changing National Healthcare Law, I would put the pedal to the metal and continuously push for other outrageous and expensive programs designed to grow the central government.
I would convince Americans that growing the central government is the only solution to a rapidly failing economy and that being unemployed and unable to provide for your family is actually a “fun-cation”.
And, while Americans were suffering through this Economic Depression, I would rant and rave about “Income Inequality”, while my family and I would take frequent vacations, costing the taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars, and throw lavish private parties at the White House, in a manner reminiscent of the old Soviet Union’s Politburo.
Realizing that the Heartland of America was still Conservative in nature, I would reach out to those Americans who believe themselves to be a mistreated minority. I would reach out to those on the fringes of society. Those Americans, who because of poor upbringing, poor education, or simply making bad decisions concerning their lives, now consider themselves deprived of the American Dream.
These people would compose about 47 percent of the population. They would be my core supporters, much like Nikolai Lenin and the Bolsheviks.
Having done a miserable job in my First Term as President, I would promise these Bolsheviks that if reelected, I would be their Santa Claus.
And, I would continue to blame my predecessor for the wretched state of the economy, even though, by now, it would be my responsibility.
Once I was reelected, there would be no stopping me. It would not matter to me what the popularity polls said, I would continue to claim that those who provide Americans with jobs were “the evil 1%” and identify their success in creating the Greatest Economic System in the World, as the “real reason” for the Economic Depression that America was in.
I would change the Moderate political stances which I “supposedly” held during the campaign for my first election as President, and show my true colors, following a political path pursuant to my true Far Left Radical Political Ideology.
Reverting back to the one job in my life that I was good at, that of being a “Community Organizer”, I would encourage an “Us Vs. Them” Racial Division in America, supporting out-of-control rioters over those who protect the Citizens of the United States, the Thin Blue Line, America’s Police Departments, because then, I could use the situation to create my own National Police Force.
I would alienate Conservative Christians living in America’s Heartland by vilifying them as “Bitter Clingers”, marginalizing them throughout my presidency, even to the point of lecturing them in my Easter Address, telling them to get off their “high horse”, basically saying that the followers of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, are no better than the murderous followers of Mohammed, whose Ideological Brethren continue to murder Christians in the Middle East.
I would push for “gay marriage”, demonizing Bible-believing Christians, who might oppose it as “bigots” and “haters” and I would voice my support for the legalization of marijuana.
Through redefining the definition of the family unit, and eliminating Christianity from everyday American Life, I will eliminate the “backbone” of the nation…the two main barriers that will keep me from radically changing America into a socialist nation.
Through pushing for the legalization of marijuana, I would succeed in dumbing down the population and eliminating their desire to succeed as individuals, making them even more subservient and reliant on the Almighty State for their very existence, thus creating a new “Proletariat”.
Regarding Foreign Policy, I would bow in deference to other world leaders, demonstrating to them and the rest of the world, that I do not believe that the United States of America, whom I am supposed to be the Biggest Advocate for, is exceptional in any way.
I would not negotiate with America’s Enemies from a position of strength. Instead, I would blindly trust those who have sworn to kill us, even if they are on the threshold of building a nuclear bomb, simply because I identify with their Political Ideology, which masquerades as a religion.
I would pull out of still turbulent areas in the Middle East, encouraging the Barbaric Forces of Radical Islam to move in and conquer the very cities where our Brightest and Best sacrificed their lives in service to America.
On the 70th Anniversary of D-Day, I would sit at a solemn International Memorial Service, smacking my gum like a cow chews his cud, as if I was behind the bench at a Chicago Bulls Basketball Game, dishonoring our fallen and enraging our allies.
In other words, I would embrace America’s Enemies, and alienate America’s Friends.
I would use the finest military in the world as a subject for Social Engineering Experiments, ending “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and moving women into combat positions, even though their lack of physical strength would endanger the American Soldiers they are fighting beside.
Following this, I would eventually allowing the “Transgendered” to serve in our Armed Forces.
I would remove God from the Armed Forces and forbid soldiers from speaking about Christ to others. I would also begin Military Training which would identify Evangelicals as “Terrorists”.
While I am at it, I would push for my wife to be able to place the military on a diet plan that is similar to the one which would already be failing in America’s Public Schools.
I would trade 5 Murderous Muslim Terrorist Generals, for one useless, traitorous, American Army Deserter, who was discharged in 2006 from the Coast Guard for Psychological Issues, who later converted to the Religious/Political Ideology of his Captors, and whose Father’s Youtube Account praised the same Radical Muslims and their Political Ideology which poses as a religion, just because I wish to make a Political Point about closing the prison in which the enemies of our country were being held.
I would use the Judicial System, The Department of Justice, the NSA, and Internal Revenue Service as my Palace Guard, using Activist judges to overturn the will of the people and harassing political opposition through uncalled-for Tax Audits.
I would use unmanned drones and blimps for unwarranted surveillance on American Citizens.
I would push for Gun Confiscation, calling it “Gun Control”, in the “name of the children”, all the while supporting the murder of the unborn in their mothers’ wombs, because having a baby is “a punishment”.
Because, after all, as Vladimir Lenin said,
One man with a gun can control 100 without one.
I would imperiously announce that if Congress did not pass the laws that I wanted them to pass, I would go around them and rule by Executive Order.
I would open our Southern Borders, bypassing our immigration laws, encouraging millions of illegal aliens to enter our nation, including unaccompanied minors, spurred on by propaganda intentionally leaked to their Latin American Home Nations in support of this Mexican Munchkin Migration.
All the while, pushing Congress for “Immigration Reform”, i.e., “Amnesty”, in order to assure that my Political Party would hold onto their Political Power, in order to finish the intentional “Radical Change” of the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.
And, if Congress refused to follow my wishes, I would attempt to grant Amnesty through “Executive Order”, bypassing the System of Checks and Balances that America’s Founding Fathers put into place, so long ago, in order to avoid a monarchy, such as they rebelled against.
Finally, if I were a Socialist U.S. President, I would blame others for my incompetency. I would portray myself as a victim of a Capitalist System and a Racist Ideology that was still prevalent in a nation that was too narrow-minded to allow me to lead them to a Socialist Paradise, even though my wife and I were worth millions or dollars, I was the President of the United States of America, and we took numerous vacations and went on “fact-finding missions” at the expense of the American Taxpayers.”
That, Mr. Former Vice-President is exactly what you and your Former Boss “accomplished”.
To paraphrase you, Joe…
That’s a big f’n deal.
You always were classy. But, I digress.
I don’t know who you think that you’re fooling with the “lover of the common man Good Ol’ Joe” routine.
You yourself admitted in an “exit interview” with the Los Angeles Times in December 2016 that “middle class people…making $100,000 a year…used to be our constituency”.
Either you cannot face how far to the left of the Political Spectrum your chosen political party moved during your time as Vice-President in the Obama Administration or you are simply a hypocrite attempting to pander to Middle Class Americans in order to be chosen as the Democratic Party’s 2020 Presidential Candidate.
There’s a huge problem with that strategy, Uncle Joe.
As you told the LA Times…average Americans in the Middle Class USED to be your constituency.
And, if you think that we are going to willingly go back under the thumb of the special interest groups, Socialism-loving Democratic Party, your hair plugs have seeped Vitalis directly into your medulla oblongata.
While you speak to small crowds (when you actually leave your house), President Trump is constantly speaking to thousands at MAGA Rallies across the country.
Do the math, Joe.
Go home and sit down…before you get embarrassed.
Until He Comes,
