Trump Shreds Biden: ‘He Understood How to Kiss Barack Obama’s A**’
President takes swipe at 2020 hopefully at rally
Trump first aimed at the former vice president's son, Hunter Biden, who is still surrounded by controversy regarding his connection to a Ukrainian gas company.
The president then went for Joe Biden himself:
"He was only a good vice president because he understood how to kiss Barack Obama’s ass,” Trump said.
“So now the Democrats are making a pathetic bid to save sleepy Joe, sleepy Joe Biden,” Trump said as boos resounded from the crowd.
“You know what? I’d love to run against him, to be honest.”
Trump then suggested that Biden wouldn’t be a tough debate opponent, arguing that candidates who could beat Biden in a debate would have problems negotiating with powerful world leaders.
“You cannot be president because what are you going to do against president XI and Kim Jong-Un? You cannot beat sleepy Joe, but now you’re going to meet with Kim Jong-Un — I don’t think so,” Trump said.
Trump then mocked Hunter Biden, noting his sudden rise to an influential position.
“Joe’s son Hunter got thrown out of the Navy and became a genius on Wall Street in about two days,” he said.
“By the way, whatever happened to Hunter? Where the hell is he? Where is Hunter? Hey, fellas, I have an idea for a new t-shirt. I love the cops, but let’s do another t-shirt — ‘Where’s Hunter? Where is he?'”
“Hunter, you know nothing about energy, you know nothing about anything, frankly. Hunter, you are a loser. Why did you get $1.5 billion, Hunter?” Trump added.
“And your father was never considered smart. He was never considered a good senator. He was only a good vice president because he understood how to kiss Barack Obama’s ass.”
“But they are always saying that same thing,” Trump concluded.
“‘President Trump made a totally unsubstantiated claim about Hunter Biden and his father.’ It’s not unsubstantiated, you crooked son-of-a-guns. It’s 100% true.”
On Wednesday, Biden called for Trump to be impeached during a town hall in Rochester, NH.
Biden, who is already surrounded by controversy amid revelations of suspicious dealings his son, Hunter Biden, had with a Ukrainian energy company, seemed to be trying to deflect the spotlight back onto the president.
“With his words and his actions, President Trump has indicted himself by obstructing justice, refusing to comply with the congressional inquiry"
On Thursday, investigative author Peter Schweizer wrote a scathing op-ed in the New York Times, calling for Biden and his son Hunter to be investigated over their family's business dealings in Ukraine and China.
In the bombshell 1,200-word NYT piece, Schweizer calls on the federal government to investigate the Bidens for potential corruption after laying out a devastating fact-pattern of transactions.
