At a campaign event in Council Bluffs, Iowa, an Iowa voter confronts former Vice President Joe Biden about the strong Trump economy, telling him to “accept the good.”
The voter started out by trying to give advice to Biden on when he debates Trump:
“There’s only one way you can win this. When you’re on the stage with Donald Trump, you’re going to say, ‘Donald, you have done some good things, I’m going to take what’s good that you did, I’m going to add to it, and I’m going to do it with dignity.’ Not everything that the other side does is bad. Not everything about the Democrat ideas are good. There’s good in both.”
Biden replied: “You gotta give me a couple of the good things.”
The voter replied: “The good things: the unemployment is good now.”
Biden then lied when he said wages are down: “Yeah, unemployment is good but wages are down.” (see below)
The voter pleads with Biden to accept the good: “Come on, accept the, good. You said there is no good on the other side?”
Biden got defensive: “I didn’t say that.”
The voter pressed Biden: “Name one thing that’s good from the other side.”
Biden stared and mumbled. When a handler tried to get him away from the voter, he said: “I can’t think of anything off the top of my head.”
That handler deserves a raise.
Biden is wrong on wages. They are going up, up, up!
