Biden on Trump's 'treason' comments: 'He's a joke'

Source: The Hill

BY BRETT SAMUELS - 02/06/18 05:19 PM EST

Former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday called President Trump “a joke” a day after Trump said Democrats who didn’t cheer him at his State of the Union speech were being treasonous.

“I just marvel at some of the things he says and does like, what, two days ago, anybody didn’t stand up and clap for him was un-American and maybe even treasonous,” Biden said in an interview with CNN.

“They say it was tongue-in-cheek. Democrats can’t take a joke,” host Chris Cuomo responded, referring to the White House’s defense of Trump’s comments.

“Well, let me tell you, he’s a joke,” Biden said.

8. Oh yeah? Is it "telling it like it is" when Joe says

DT shouldn't do the interview with Mueller because he might say something false "without even planning to be disingenuous"?

11. I don't blame him.

Trump has no concept of the truth. If you're speaking as a lawyer, you want to protect your client, even from himself. And any lawyer that doesn't tell him to avoid interviewing isn't doing his job. Trump would end up lying under oath, and be subject to adding perjury charges to what he's already got going on.
I totally agree Trump should be questioned. But if I was his lawyer, I'd wait for a subpoena.

12. But a subpoena would mean testifying without a lawyer in front of a Grand Jury.

It's hard to see why that would be better, unless the lawyer thought "waiting" meant the whole thing would go away.

I don't think Biden should have given DT credit for trying to be truthful.

18. I'm sure Trump listens to Democrats' advice.

I'm sure, when Biden tells Trump he couldn't survive an interview with Mueller, that Trump goes for Biden's advice 100 percent. There is no way that this could possibly be reverse psychology, nosirree.

19. I'm sure he doesn't. But many voters watching him just heard Biden

say that Trump might not be planning to be disingenuous,

even though we KNOW he is disingenuous -- he lies -- constantly.

wouldn't understand him.

7. I don't. Joe also said that he'd advise Trump not to take an interview with Mueller

because he might say something wrong "without even planning to be disingenuous."

You and I know DT lies at every opportunity, but Joe says he shouldn't testify because he might accidentally lie.

20. Joe is an open mouth (as opposed to an open book)

I’ll always remember when he was querying Alberto Gonzales ... and said ...
“I really love ya, man.”

22. Exactly! And the reason he failed to be supportive enough to Anita Hill

was that he couldn't stand to be not-nice to Clarence Thomas or the other Senators on the committee. He had to stand up to them and take the flak, and he couldn't.

29. I watched the Anita Hill hearing, and

to be fair, it was hardly just Biden who caved -- virtually every
Democrat in the room shut up after Thomas accused them of racism, calling the proceedings a "high tech lunching".

4. Mom and I saw this story on CNN this afternoon.

She thought Joe would be a great candidate for President in 2020, except that she thinks Joe may be too old. Mom is 94!

10. spread that pic!

Cheetolini is *supposed* to execute the laws. If he believes that not clapping for him is treasonous, let him bring Melania before a Federal court.

I'd love to read the transcript as a judge schools that fool.

16. Trump once said that Obama was the founder of ISIS

Hugh Hewitt tried to get him to walk it back and Trump said: "No, I mean that he is literally the founder of ISIS."

This is who we are dealing with.

26. Cadet Bone Spurs. A joke, a loser, and much poorer than he claims. Loser his whole life

If he had taken the money Daddy gave him and put it in the stock market, he'd be richer than he is now.

DJT's whole life is a loser charade of weakness and buffoonery.

His Dad would be deeply disappointed in him.
