Joe Biden’s pick for Vice President worse than him appointing Barack Obama to Supreme Court
On “Late Night with Stephen Colbert,” former Vice President under Barack Obama, turned presidential hopeful, Joe Biden spoke about appointing Barack Obama to the Supreme Court, but it didn’t end there. Biden and Colbert discussed the matter, with Biden insisting that if he won the Democratic presidential nomination, beating out incumbent President Donald Trump, he wouldn’t hesitate in appointing Obama to the Supreme Court.
“Have you called [Obama] for advice [on the campaign]?” Colbert questioned the former Vice President. “Would you appoint him to the Supreme Court?”
Biden happily answered with a smile, “Hell yes! [But] I don’t think he’d do it. … He’s fully qualified.”
Colbert answered, “Have you asked Michelle Obama for advice?”
Biden came back with a quip, “Only to be my vice president. I mean …”
The crowd laughed and applauded, to which Biden responded “I’m only joking! Michelle, I’m joking! That was a joke.”
I sure hope Biden was only joking, in my opinion, all Michelle has experience in is being a spoiled, entitled, America bashing elitist.
Take a look:
Later on in the interview, Colbert asked the presidential hopeful where he was planning on running, to which Biden answered, “Charlottesville.”
More on the interview from Fox News:
Former Vice President Joe Biden was pressed by “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert about his series of gaffes on Wednesday night, stressing that he doesn’t get other things wrong like “locking kids up in cages at the border.”
Colbert began by listing some of Biden’s most recent eyebrow-raising remarks, including when he confused New Hampshire for Vermont, said that Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr. were assassinated in the “late seventies,” and when he told a crowd he wasn’t “going nuts.”
“Follow up question… are you going nuts?” Colbert asked
“Look, the reason why I came on the Jimmy Kimmel Show is because I’m not,” Biden joked.
Biden said it’s “fair” to go after political figures “for anything,” but attempted to differentiate that his gaffes have not been about a “substantive issue.” He then pointed to his recent military story blunder as an example.
OPINION| Former Vice President Joe Biden has been giving lip service on the campaign trail to working with Republicans, which in turn has earned him a lot of criticism from the anti-Trump Democratic party faithful.
During today’s so called “Poor People’s Summit” Biden doubled down on his position that Democrats have to work with Republicans, or if that’s not possible then as he put it, start a “real physical revolution.”
Transcript Via Mediaite:
MSNBC’s Joy Reid, one of the moderators, told Biden at one point the initiatives he’s proposing would wind up in the Senate, currently run by Republicans. She asked, “How would you get past either a majority-Republican Senate in which Mitch McConnell was determined to kill all of these ideas or even a Mitch McConnell in the minority who repeated the consistent filibustering you had when you were vice president?”
“Joy, I know you’re one of the ones that thinks it’s naive to think we have to work together,” Biden responded. “The fact of the matter is if we can’t get a consensus, nothing happens except the abuse of power by the executive.”
“You have to go out and beat these folks if they don’t agree with you by making your case,” he continued, saying the president should be able to persuade the public
“If you start off with the notion there’s nothing you can do, well, why don’t you all go home then?” Biden said. “Or let’s start a real physical revolution if you’re talking about it. Because we have to be able to change what we’re doing within our system.”
