Biden Is a “Total Moron”

Tonight Donald Trump held a rally before 80,000 to 100,000 cheering fans in New Jersey. Joe Biden, in contrast, could hold a rally in a parking lot. Trump is not one of my 25 favorite politicians, but the fine points are rapidly becoming irrelevant. The New York Post reports:

“You could take the 10 worst presidents in the history of our country, and add them up .. and they haven’t done the damage to our country that this total moron has done,” Trump, 77, said to a cheering crowd of tens of thousands.

You could debate that proposition, but it is plausible. Joe Biden makes James Buchanan look like Abraham Lincoln.

“He’s a fool, he’s not a smart man. He never was,” Trump said.

Biden was known as “Slow Joe” for decades before he became senile.

“He was considered stupid. I talk about him differently now because now, the gloves are off. He’s a bad guy … he’s the worst president ever, of any country. The whole world is laughing at him, he’s a fool.”

Sad but true. And, at long last, the gloves need to come off: Trump talked about the absurd indictments that the Democratic Party has brought against him.

He blamed Biden, 81, for his legal troubles, saying, “You don’t do that to your opponents.

“It’s done in third-world countries, it’s done in banana republics, it’s not done in the United States of America.”

Well, it wasn’t done until now. The Democrats have violated every historic norm. Their indictments of Trump are all, every one of them, a bad joke.

He told the crowd that his administration oversaw the “greatest economy in the history of our country” — and that New Jersey would benefit heartily if he returned to office.

“If Joe Biden wins this election, the middle class loses, New Jersey loses,” Trump said.

“But if Trump wins, the middle class wins, the people of low income really start winning again, and you’re all going for the American Dream!” he continued. “New Jersey wins, Pennsylvania wins, America wins.”

All of that is true. But perhaps the most interesting aspect of Trump’s rally is that he brought along North Dakota’s Governor Doug Burgum, a possible vice-presidential nominee. Cards on the table: I am a fan of Burgum. I have spent some time with him, talking about energy issues. He is tremendously well-informed on that topic and is, in general, a very smart guy. I will be in North Dakota next week and hope to spend some time with him again. It is hard to imagine a better development for America’s future than to put Doug Burgum in charge of energy policy.

Personally, I would like to see Tulsi Gabbard as Trump’s VP pick, with Burgum as Secretary of Energy. As with Burgum, I have spent a little time with Gabbard and I found her to be deeply impressive. I wrote about my encounter with Gabbard here, and with Burgum here. Both are impressive people who, I hope, will play key roles in any forthcoming Trump administration.
