Last night, during the first presidential debate Joe Biden attempted to use his deceased son, Beau Biden to back up a debunked The Atlantic story that accused President Trump of making negative comments about veterans. Even though Biden knows The Atlantic story has been completely debunked, he used his son as a segue to push the fake news story for the debate audience, “The way you talk about the military, the way you talk about them being losers, and, and, and just being suckers. My son was in Iraq. He spent a year there. He got the Bronze Star, he got the Conspicuous Service medal. He was not a loser—he was a patriot…and the people left behind there were heroes—and I resent…”
“Really? Are you talking about Hunter? Are you talking about Hunter?” Trump asked
“I’m talking about my son, Beau Biden!” Biden shouted back.
Trump calmly responded, “I don’t know Beau, I know Hunter. Hunter got thrown out of the military—he was thrown out, dishonorably discharged, for cocaine use…”
“That’s not true!” Biden shouted.
“…and he did not have a job until you became vice president,” Trump reminded the debate audience.
“None of that is true!” Biden shouted again.
There is no evidence that Hunter was “dishonorably” discharged, but he was in fact, discharged from the US Navy after he failed a mandatory drug test.
Trump responded, “He made a fortune in Ukraine and China and Moscow and various other places.”
“That is simply not true!” Joe shouted, adding that he had a drug problem that he fixed.

In a follow up segment, President defended himself against the lie Joe Biden and his allies in the medi continue to spread about him from anonymous sources, and reminded the debate audience that former Vice President Joe Biden actually called military members “stupid bastards.” Joe Biden shot back against Trump’s accusation, shouting, “No, I didn’t!” telling them to play the tape the tape to prove it. “Play it!” Biden said over and over again.

Okay, Joe—you want to see the tape?…Here you go!
Here’s the 2016 video of then-Vice President Joe Biden during a visit with our troops, calling them, “stupid bastards!”
Joe denied this. Here’s the video. https://t.co/Lf3T5j5CEd

In the longer YouTube video below; Biden said his usual “C’mon man.” Then he insulted the military by saying, “Man, you are a dull bunch…must be slow here, man.”
What an arrogant SOB.
The first part of the video is difficult to hear, but when Biden speaks, it’s louder. He brags about how many times he’s been to the Middle East to visit the troops. Then he brags about the two things he’s done in his life. After he mentions his wife and then the servicewoman he says he appointed to the Academy, he gets no applause. This is when he says at the 1:50 point in the video (there is a shorter version below this YouTube video):
It’s easy to tell he’s become unfiltered and is losing his sense of appropriateness. We saw it during last year’s campaign stops when he confronted an autoworker in Michigan and when he got in the face of a reporter and repeatedly said, “Why, why, why, why, why…”
