Slow Joe The Gaff Machine Biden calling President Trump a clown is rich.
After all, this is the same Joe Biden that said British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher called him and expressed concern about President Trump.
The problem is the former British Prime Minister Margret Thatcher passed away in 2013 and has not been Prime Minister since 1990.
The 2020 Democratic presidential front-runner said he didn’t want to get down in the mud with Trump, but if he had to choose a moniker for the current White House occupant it would be a “clown.”
“There’s so many nicknames I’m inclined to give this guy,” Biden said, according to Politico. “You can just start with clown.”
Trump, who, during his 2016 presidential run, famously began doling out nicknames like “Crooked” Hillary Clinton, “Lyin” Ted Cruz and “Low Energy” Jeb Bush – has labeled Biden as “Sleepy Joe” when the former vice president declared his White House bid in April.
At the private fundraiser on Saturday, Biden said Trump’s nicknames were part of his war of words with his political rivals that are meant to keep the discussions away from the issues.
“On every single issue and on every demeaning thing he says about other people, I have no problem responding directly,” Biden said. “What I’m not going to do is get into what he wants me to do. He wants this to be a mud wrestling match.”
The president has recently stepped up his attacks on social media – blasting everyone from the media reporting on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report to social media for being an alleged partner of the Democratic Party.
Biden said that Trump’s behavior – both on and off social media – has worried his fellow world leaders and that “at least 14 world leaders” have called him during Trump’s tenure to express their unease.
Biden said British Prime Minister Theresa May asked him directly for reassurance that the U.S. and the United Kingdom “still have a special relationship.”
Biden said the U.S. under Trump “is about to squander alliances” built over generations. He noted that he’s “spent my entire adult life” in foreign affairs, first with 36 years in the Senate then eight years as President Barack Obama’s vice president.
The former vice president’s comments came on the same day that he lambasted Trump and the Republicans for pushing for stricter voter identification laws and charged that Jim Crow is “sneaking back in.”
