It’s almost impossible to believe that Joe Biden would disrespect the military this way.
But the video evidence is clear as day.
Joe Biden said two words of shocking insult to brave U.S. troops.
The Atlantic released a hit piece against President Donald Trump reporting that Trump called U.S. soldiers “losers” and “suckers” during a trip to France in 2018.
Biden spent “$47 million [on an] ad campaign across various TV, digital, and radio platforms” that spread the report even though 14 witnesses went on record denying the report.
“In my presence, POTUS has NEVER denigrated any member of the U.S. military or anyone in service to our country. And he certainly did not that day, either. Let me add, he was devastated to not be able to go to the cemetery at Belleau Wood. In fact, the next day, he attended and spoke at the ceremony in Suresnes in the pouring rain.” U.S. Ambassador to France and Monaco Jamie McCourt stated.
Democrats were deeply troubled by this unsubstantiated story.
“If what is written in The Atlantic is true, it’s disgusting,” Biden said. “And it affirms what most of us believe to be true: that Donald Trump is not fit to do the job of president, to be the commander in chief.”
Yet Biden himself was caught on camera saying worse than what The Atlantic claimed Trump said.
A video emerged of Biden calling soldiers “stupid bastards” and a “dull bunch” in 2016 when he was Vice President.
“I have incredibly good judgment,” Biden said. “One, I married Jill, and two, I appointed Johnson to the academy. I just want you to know that. Clap for that, you stupid bastards.”
Seconds later, Biden appeared to say that the soldiers were “a dull bunch” and that they “must be slow.”
Biden’s campaign confirmed that he made these remarks.
“Vice President Biden was jokingly encouraging the audience to clap for an airwoman on the stage, and a number of service members can be seen laughing and smiling at the comment. Seconds before, he praised them for ‘the incredible sacrifices [they] make for our country,’” Biden campaign spokesperson Andrew Bates said. “He thanked them for their patriotism and courage throughout, and closed his remarks by saying, ‘you’re the finest generation of warriors the world has ever, ever known’—receiving an enthusiastic ovation.”
This is the double standard that conservatives face on a daily basis from the mainstream media.
The media doesn’t even need to have actual sources to back up their claims when they attack Trump, while real video footage from Democrats is disregarded.
They can’t be trusted anymore which is why more and more Americans are choosing to get their news from other sources.
