Joe Biden’s speech to a crowd is being called out for one over-the-top comment about delivering a death blow to President Trump on election night. Of course, it’s not a literal meaning but is insensitive because the president is currently in the hospital:
This is more ugly politics coming from the campaign that promised they would remove negative adds when President Trump was sick but didn’t follow through with the promise:
“Despite pledging to stop his negative advertising, nearly 100 negative Biden ads slandering the president and lying about his record have aired today.”
With President Trump at Walter Reed Medical Center, Joe Biden tells a crowd to fantasize about President Trump being delivered a “coup de grâce,” or death blow.
Merriam-Webster defines coup de grâce as “a death blow or death shot administered to end the suffering of one mortally wounded.”
