Trump and allies take aim at Biden -- and his family -- as their top Democratic target

By Matt Viser and Ashley Parker May 24 at 6:00 AM

He started out with “1 percent Joe.” Then he moved on to “Creepy Joe.” And finally he settled on “Sleepy Joe” — or sometimes, when feeling punchy, “Sleepy Creepy Joe.”

By the time President Trump road-tested his fourth nickname for Joe Biden, it was clear that he and his allies are treating the former vice president as their chief Democratic rival — with Trump turning his considerable talent for political destruction on both Biden and his family.

Trump’s allies have mocked Biden’s hugging of his own wife, while Trump accused him of deserting Pennsylvania because his father moved the family to neighboring Delaware when Biden was 10. Some Trump surrogates are also mounting attacks on his son, Hunter Biden, for his foreign business entanglements and privately — but eagerly — sharing reports of his alleged substance abuse.

More broadly, the Trump campaign and its supporters have begun attacking Joe Biden in much the same way they went after Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016 — casting the former senator and vice president as a lifelong politician who has been part of a broken political system and whose family has been personally enriched by it.

“There’s nothing quite like watching Joe Biden, who’s been in D.C. for about 60 years, say government has failed you,” Donald Trump Jr. said at a rally for his father in Pennsylvania Monday night. “I go, ‘Joe, in all fairness this is your life’s work. It is a failure, I agree with you.’ ”

2. Trump is the world's worst insulter over the age of eight

"Sleepy Joe", "Creepy Joe"? He has a lot of experience at it, you'd think he would be better at it.

4. None of these Trump monikers are really working

Which is why Trump and his enablers keep adding new tag lines. Plus the idea of adding 'creepy' to the line is nothing short of hilarious coming from Donald Trump--the Creep of the Universe!

That being said, I love how a section of Democrats feel the necessity of doing Trump's work for him. All to enhance their own candidates. I cringe at some of these comments. So be it for our pledge not to speak ill of other Dems (with the exception of the Senator from Vermont, a fair-weather Democrat at best).

This is getting plenty ugly already!

5. PS:

I would add that a lot of these critical statements come from BidenEnvy. Joe's got a huge target on his back.
