Remember when Joe Biden said his Presidential campaign slogan was to “Make America Moral Again”?
This is not the first time the angry and irascible Brandon has done something like this.
He is angry all the time because he has dementia. This is how people with dementia behave. They get angry and hostile very easily, and sometimes even for no reason at all.
Honestly, Joe Biden has always been an angry and spiteful person to begin with. Look past the Obama-era photos of him where he’s always smiling or sniffing someone or looking cool in his aviators or generally being portrayed as “lovable old Uncle Joe,” and you will see a guy who is frequently angry and nasty:
He frequently gets right up in people’s faces trying to physically intimidate them, although not nearly as much anymore.
Remember the 2012 Vice Presidential debate when he was continually interrupting and scoffing at everything Paul Ryan said? Whether or not you like Paul Ryan is beside the point–you can see clearly here who Joe Biden truly is. He keeps the famous smile up at all times, but he’s really a vicious and nasty guy:
I can only imagine what he’s like behind closed doors.
I have always gotten the vibe that Biden was probably a violent guy behind closed doors. I could just envision him coming off the stage with that big, fake smile and then just pummeling one of his aides or assistants or his campaign director.
Plus, look at the son he raised. Hunter Biden is about as big of a piece of shit as you can be without being a murderer. Joe Biden is a bad person. He’s a vicious, angry guy with a terrible temper and I can only imagine what he’s capable of behind closed doors.
And now he’s even angrier because of his dementia. It’s a bad situation.
Now, let’s see if the corporate media–which under Trump went to nauseating lengths to portray themselves as an oppressed and victimized class–will erupt in outrage over Biden’s treatment of a Fellow Journalist.
They would’ve if Trump was in office. If Trump did what Biden just did to, say, a CNN reporter, it would be the end of the world. It would the leading story on every news outlet for a week straight. It would be the rise of fascism, the death of the free press–nothing less than the complete destruction of the United States of America itself.
I’m sure we’ll see the same reaction from the media over Brandon having the gall to insult a Respect and Cherished Journalist, right?
Will they all be Literally Shaking over this? Will they all be simultaneously vomiting and crying over how horrifically and literally violent Brandon’s words were?
For the record, I actually support Presidents insulting and ridiculing journalists. Journalists generally suck. They’re lying propagandists who are not on our side.
And it is precisely because you will not see an eruption of outrage from the Corporate Media Class over Brandon insulting this Fox News reporter that I feel this way.
They’re completely dishonest and disingenuous. Trump calls a reporter a son of a bitch? APOCALYPSE! THE PILLARS OF DEMOCRACY ARE CRUMBLING BEFORE OUR EYES! IT’S LITERALLY NAZI GERMANY ALL OVER AGAIN! AMERICA IS NOW A FASCIST DICTATORSHIP! JOURNALISTS ARE BEING SYSTEMATICALLY HUNTED AND TARGETED FOR EXTERMINATION! THIS IS LITERALLY THE NEW HOLOCAUST!!!!!
Brandon does it? He gets praised for “deadpanning”–Brandon is so hilarious, guys! Fox News reporter: OWNED!!! LMAOOOO!
Ace of Spades, as always completely nails it:
I don’t think it was a gaffe; he said it right into the microphone and grinned proudly as he was saying it, like he was reliving his old confrontation with Corn-Pop the Made-Up Ethnic Interloper.
I think he was showing off. I think this is a case of redirecting “Stray Voltage” — David Plouffle’s idea that when you’re doing badly, there’s a lot of “stray voltage” negative energy buzzing around, and it is best for you if you can ground it into some other controversy which, while maybe controversial, is less negative for you than the existing storylines are.
In this case — this endears Biden to his hyperpartisan leftwing supporters, by which I mean the media, who hate Fox News and want to see them degraded. And if you want to know how that squares with their “it’s dangerous to encourage a climate of invective towards the press” — shut up, Seditious Conspirator. That’s different. Fox isn’t really the press. It’s spreads Dangerous Disinformation, unlike the leftwing press, which spreads Benevolent Disinformation.
Also, Biden really fancies himself a steely-eyed Clint Eastwood style tough-guy, and I think this demented old bird thinks he really knocked one out of the park here. I think he’s having a real Movie Star Cowboy fantasy here.
All because he asked a legitimate question that a senile old idiot didn’t want to answer.
