Truer words were never spoken.

Joe Biden called out President Trump as an “existential threat” to the United States in a campaign appearance in Iowa Tuesday. The bashing by the front-runner for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination and former vice president came as he and Mr. Trump travel throughout Iowa Tuesday trying to galvanize their supporters.

Biden labeled Mr. Trump an existential threat to decency, America’s standing in the world, and democracy.

Biden drew a “sharp contrast” between himself and the president on several key issues, among them tariffs, climate change and restoring American “values.”

Beyond policy and international relations, Biden made an emotional appeal about Mr. Trump’s behavior, such as his recent name-calling of Bette Midler on Twitter during his visit to Europe for the D-Day 75th anniversary celebrations. He also referred to Mr. Trump as a threat to democracy.

“Four years of Donald Trump would be an aberration in American history. Eight years will fundamentally change who we are as a nation,” Biden said.

Biden has made a number of gaffes, and he is likely the wrong candidate for the Democratic party this time around, but there is still power in a former VP calling a sitting president an existential threat to the country. 

That is not mere political hyperbole, Biden knows better than most how much damage Trump has done to a nation that he and President Obama dragged back from the abyss. 

The Obama Administration worked their asses off to rescue us from financial ruin and get things back in order, and Trump comes in and starts smashing the china on day one. 

That must be incredibly hard for the former VP to watch happen. 

In many ways, it would almost seem poetic for Biden to ride in on his white horse and rescue the country from the shambles that Trump has made of it since taking the reins of power from his former boss. 

But this is not a movie, and he is not the hero we are looking for.

    OT-FYI

    “The 2017 assassination of Kim Jong Nam, the older half-brother of North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un, was recorded by security cameras. Two women came up behind him one at a time and rubbed chemicals over his face, which combined to make the deadly nerve agent VX.” “On the day he was killed, he was found with $120,000 in cash in his little backpack and so that may have been as a payment for his services,”

    I want a woman to be the one to end Trump’s reign of terror. I’ll surely vote for whoever the Democratic nominee is, but women have put up with so much from the likes of Trump, it would be poetic justice for one of us to take him down. We deserve this!

    Biden could slam dunk on Trump by challenging the lazy fuck to walk to Starbucks from the Whitehouse. Trump wouldn’t make it to the gate and quit.

    “I do believe that we should believe Bob Mueller when he tells us essentially that the only reason an indictment was not returned is because of a memo in the Department of Justice that suggests you cannot indict a sitting president. But I’ve seen prosecution of cases on much less evidence,” “For those of us who have been following the investigation and have seen any part of that report, it is very clear that there is a lot of good evidence pointing to obstruction of justice,” “I believe Congress should take the steps towards impeachment.”

    Why are voters looking for a savior? When trump was running there were republicans who saw signs in the sky that he was the one. Yeah he was the one. The one to get on our last nerve. Donald is an old cranky pants accomplishing things only for the rich. He has no new ideas. Even his push to the maga thingy was already thought up by hitler. What america truly needs is a kick in the ass. And we got it these almost for years. If trump gets reelected cuz God told people to do it, we get another four years of blah blah blah. Then when trump is gone, the coffers empty, we vote in someone with commonsense and a sense of duty to the country to put it all back together again. Meanwhile the republicans will slink back into their corners to lick their wounds to conspire another dastardly plan to retake the helm so again they can wreak their havoc. After reagan there was clinton. Blowjob aside our country was good again. Then after bush w there was poor obama trying to enjoy being tbe first black president as he rolled up his sleeve to put back together a downtrodden economy. He got no thanks. Instead the bastard republicans said outloud that they would obstruct his every move. They got approval from their constituency which they knew they would because they used tbe age old mind trick of the great white man undermining the black man who in their opinion will always be the inferior despite the fact that obama reeked with obvious intelligence. Whoever americans vote for will be an improvement on trump. But honestly, that person should have the same qualities as obama. America is almost split between dumb and dumber when it gets to choose so called leaders. We live in corrupt times. Donald has cemented that fact. Our country may stay the banana republic donald has made it to be if we continue choosing his kind. Putin would love that because anything goes when you get an immoral thing to fill the white house. The blowjob that the republicans once made a big deal of those years ago when they were playing dirty is nothing compared to what the republicans and all their foriegn conspirers and the aider and abeter in chief are doing to the core integrity of our faltering country. Will voters wake up to that fact? Not until its way too late. Because unfortunately for us here in america, our country is built on that saying money talks and bullshit walks. And while that saying is said all over the world, in our country at this point it could well be to our detriment.

    “Donald Trump is an existential threat to america.”

    Constitution’s Emoluments Clause

    It’s an old word that once meant any benefit or comfort. Today, it refers to salary or swag that comes from providing a service.
