Joe Biden is a Hillary Clinton Retread
Joe Biden is an older, less coherent version of Hillary Clinton, and he seems to enjoy proving it. Like the last Democrat presidential candidate, Biden is an establishment stooge who sneers at ordinary Americans for failing to mimic elitist sensibilities.
Earlier this week at a fundraiser, this year’s presumptive Democrat presidential nominee mocked Trump supporters in a way that reminded some people of Clinton’s infamous “basket of deplorables” comment in 2016. In case you forgot, Clinton “joked” that “you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? …The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that.” Remember that doozy? It was so patronizing that even Saturday Night Live’s Seth Meyer, a frequent Trump critic, scolded her for sounding like an out-of-touch “rich, white lady.”
Compare that with Biden’s description of Trump supporters this week who “really support the notion that, you know, all Mexicans are rapists and all Muslims are bad and… dividing this nation based on ethnicity, race.” Having apparently learned nothing from Clinton’s 2016 debacle, Biden seems to think that denigrating millions of Americans as ignorant bigots will earn him plaudits from his far-left backers.
