Basket Case of Deplorables: Joe Biden Claims 10-15% of Americans “Not Good People”

Now listen here, bucko.

These Americans – I mean, that’s what we call them, isn’t it? You know who I’m talking about – but, let’s just call them Americans.

We need to face the, uhh, you know – the facts.

Facts matter.

These fellows, why, back when I was, when I was – the thing.

And then they just kept on looting.

You see, despite making up 13% of the population, these guys – real tough guys – they’re just not good people.

Very disrespectful.

Fox News:

Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed Thursday that “10 to 15 percent” of Americans are “just not very good people.”

As first reported by The New York Times, Biden held a virtual town hall on Thursday evening with black supporters where he knocked President Trump’s divisiveness and weak leadership.

“The words a president says matter, so when a president stands up and divides people all the time, you’re gonna the worst of us to come out,” Biden told actor Don Cheadle, who was moderating the virtual town hall.

“Do we really think this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don’t think the vast majority of people think that,” Biden continued. “There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there who are just not very good people, but that’s not who we are. The vast majority of the people are decent. We have to appeal to that and we have to unite people — bring them together. Bring them together.”

It is unclear who exactly he was referring to within the “10 to 15 percent” of people and whether or not he believes they support President Trump.

Well, it’s not unclear to me. With everything that’s happening right now, I think we all know. He’s just saying what we’re all thinking.

I’m shocked that he’s just coming out and saying this.

He must have forgotten that it’s not the 1930s anymore, which is when I assume he was last in Congress.

The statements, of course, are being compared to Hillary Clinton’s statements about a certain percentage of the country being an irredeemable “basket of deplorables.”

You can never really know what you would do in a situation until you’re in it, but if I was doing this bit, I’m pretty sure I would remember the Hillary Clinton thing, and not say this.

But, you know who wouldn’t remember that – or anything?

Joe Biden.

Amazing thing, that. Never seen anything like it.

Gotta hand it to him – he sure doesn’t care what other people think about him.

There would be something to that, if he wasn’t so weird.
