There are already plenty of unforced errors coming from the appearances of 2020 candidate Joe Biden last weekend, but this one takes the cake.
In an effort to try and gain sympathy and to have a hands-off approach from the press, Biden told a crowd at a fundraiser that his adult granddaughter said, “Mommy and daddy had a divorce and they’re going to really go after that.”
He shamelessly made ridiculous claims that President Trump will go after his family during the campaign.
In fact, he even claimed his grown-up granddaughter told him that the fact that “mommy and daddy had a divorce” would be exploited in the 2020 campaign.
“This guy is going to go after me and my family. My generic point is they know how tough it’s going to be.”
Was this a warning to the media and other candidates?
The Washington Examiner reports that Biden, 76, spoke about how one of his grandsons, Robert “Hunter” Biden II, 13, said “Pop, you have to run pop,” at a family meeting eight weeks ago. He also said how Hunter Jr. showed him a photo circulating on the internet from the funeral of his father Beau — who died in 2015 aged 46 — and said, “Pop, it says: ‘Look at Biden molesting a kid.'”
The former vice president said one grandchild told him: “Pop, I know it’s going to be mean, they’re going to say bad things about daddy. Mommy and daddy had a divorce and they’re going to really go after that.”
That appeared to be a quotation from one of Hunter Biden’s children. He has three daughters, Naomi, 24, Finnegan, 19, and Maisy, 18.
Adult grandchildren of Joe Biden speak like this?
There is plenty of baggage to report on Joe Biden without resorting to attacking his family. Of all people, President Trump knows what it’s like to be attacked and to have his family in the spotlight being attacked.
This tactic is all part of Biden’s shtick and attempts at playing coy with the media. Let’s face it, he doesn’t want the hard questions about his inappropriate touching of women and is using his grandchildren to fend off any criticism.
HE PANDERED ALL WEEKEND IN SOUTH CAROLINA TO THE BLACK COMMUNITY:
One thing is true…Joe Biden panders and lies during campaign speeches like no one else. He’s had decades to perfect his technique of trying to raise fear in the minority community to keep those votes coming. The question is…are the people in the black community still buying Biden’s shtick?
Joe Biden took a page from the Hillary Clinton playbook yesterday when during a rally in Columbia, South Carolina he pandered to the black vote by telling the “folks” that racism and hatred by Republicans and Trump will bring back “Jim Crow” laws:
“Folks, last year, 24 states introduced or enacted at least 70 bills to curtail the right the vote. And guess what, mostly directed at ‘people of color’ You see it. We have Jim Crow sneaking back in. No, I mean it!”
He pointed out the Stacey Abrams loss and the Florida race where Andrew Gillum lost his race for governor.
“Why? Because they know if everybody has an equal right to vote, guess what? They lose!”
Biden brought up the 2015 Charleston church shooting and Obama singing ‘Amazing Grace’:
“I watched my buddy Barack stand up there, I watched him talk, and he talked about we have to find that ‘Amazing Grace’. What we’ve never seen, when we have bad folks splitting people…Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, marching, chanting hate coming out of the woods literally with their torches, coming out from under rocks, and shouting the same antisemitic bile that was shouted and spoken to in Germany in the 30’s.”
Biden gave a glowing description of Obama, of course, and kept calling him his “buddy”:
“By the way, he’s a hell of a guy, I worked with him for eight years, I watched him, he has enormous integrity, and nobody I’ve ever worked with was smarter, and he is a decent, decent, decent man,” Biden said. “And folks, I think he was one of the best president’s we’ve ever, ever had.”

He shouted to all 50 people at the rally:
“Above all else, we must defeat Donald Trump!”
