Go Joe, go! Biden slams Trump for promoting false COVID-19 claims from 'crazy woman'

Joe Biden on Wednesday excoriated President Donald Trump for promoting on Twitter the dubious claims of Dr. Stella Immanuel, the Houston doctor who’s claimed to have effectively treated hundreds of COVID-19 patients with hydroxychloroquine, who the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee called a “crazy woman.”

In a virtual event with the UnidosUS Action Fund, a nonprofit advocating for Latino political power, Biden was asked to respond to Trump having repeatedly pushed for public schools to reopen this fall without putting into place effective measures to keep teachers and students safe.

Biden replied that Trump should “stop tweeting and start doing something about it, damn it” and “stop talking about this crazy woman he talked about last night, who's an absolute disgrace.”

Biden’s dig appeared to be in reference to Immanuel, whom Trump on Tuesday night called “very impressive” and an “important voice.”

1. If Trump goes through with debating Biden, he'd better bring a good cut man

The referee will stop it in the second round.

4. Agreed

I'm sure it wasn't intended but saying "crazy woman" perpetuates a sexist trope...

12. Biden doesn't need to be seen as talking down to a woman by linking the "crazy" adjective

Crazy is derogatory and could be seen as a modifier to "woman".


It's like in comedy, you never want to bee seen as "punching down". White men are on top of this pyramid and cannot "punch down" to someone in a lower perceived rank without being seen as a jerk.

Poor comics can make fun of rich celebrities, but a rich celebrity cant make fun of a single mom who has multiple jobs...you just look like a schmuck.

Everyone is super sensitive these days and you have to be wary of making faux paus, even when running against trump.

17. She is a woman? No?

8. Not The Atmosphere For Playing Nice

Sorry, but our side watching our language got us Gingrich, 43, and PINO.
No holds barred seems a perfectly reasonable approach this time.

13. Really!

I, as a man, take zero offense at anybody calling tRump a crazy man. Calling HIM a crazy person is offensive to people though. Chill pills for everyone. We got one big ass “fish” to fry. Save the small ones for a more stable time.

15. Absolutely. I still remember the PINO mocking the handicapped at his stupid convention and...

also mocked Mika Brzezinski last year, accusing her of “bleeding badly from a face-lift”.

The game is wide open since the ignorant ass started the whole damn thing.

I'm still pissed off, especially w/the handicapped remark (I'm such), so it's gloves off time.

It's war and it is solely rump that started this mess, all by himself, with his filthy mouth.

Now, if they play nice (which is very very doubtful), then there is no cause to resort to such language or crap, but when this scumbag, PINO starts this crap, and keeps it up and up and comes up daily with yet more insults on Americans of all stripes, I'm not holding back my punches. I'm tired of his making fun and mocking people. And a lot of people are tired of it too.

Enough. I'm sick and tired of this filth.

14. Finally! Call them what they are!

Yeah, yeah, I understand about the mental illness and gender concerns. But he is running for President. Most Americans, including most on DU, if told a preacher doctor believes medicine is made with Alien Blood and STDs cause by having dream sex with demons would respond; that woman is crazy!
