When a candidate is campaigning and running for office, lashing out at voters is generally ill-advised, as is making fun of individuals at one’s political functions. Of course, these general rules have, once again, escaped the blunder-prone, gaffe-making Joe Biden.
Over the past few weeks, Biden has demonstrated to America that his fuse is shorter than that of a ticking time bomb. On multiple occasions, the former vice president chose to lash out at voters who dared to challenge him, even in the slightest.
Some of the most notorious examples include Biden daring one man to a push-up contest, calling someone who challenged him about Ukraine a “d*mn liar,” and Biden mocking the speech of a reporter who questioned his attacks against Bernie Sanders.
This weekend, the former vice president stepped in it yet again while campaigning in North Liberty, Iowa. After being repeatedly asked by an Iowan man on how to save his marriage, Biden lashed out, stating that he was “beginning to see” why the man’s wife dumped him, reports Washington Examiner.
The Confrontation at Biden’s Campaign Event
At some point during the 2020 Democrat’s address to voters, one man stood up and began speaking. Biden paused while the Iowan explained that his wife is divorcing him and questioned whether or not the former vice president had any advice.
In a somewhat dismissive manner, Biden stated that he’d speak with the voter after wrapping up his event. However, the Iowan man remained persistent, asking if he and the 2020 Democrat could “just get this out right now.”
Sizing up the man, Biden scoffed, stating that he was “beginning to see” why the Iowan man’s wife wasn’t staying with him. As the audience laughed, the former vice president shook his head, once again repeating that he’d “spend time” with the voter later on.
The Larger Issue with Biden and Other Democrats
If this incident were a one-off, it might be easier to excuse or explain away. However, as previously established, Biden has a history of lashing out at voters and reporters who challenge him in one way or another.
Just last week, the former vice president took heat for attacking someone who stated that he’d vote for Biden in the general election, but not necessarily in the primaries.
Unfortunately, Democrats have conned their base into viewing the left-wing as righteous and morally superior. In turn, this leads to the misguided belief that leftist politicians truly have the people’s best interests at heart and are committed to “saving” them.
In actuality, the left has no regard or respect for the people they claim to be fighting for; their only interests lie in saying whatever is necessary to obtain power and remain in office. If Democrats actually fixed the dilemmas they purport to be problematic, what would they run on during the next election season?
Sadly, the left continues to blur the line between the role of government and the role of individual responsibility. Biden has repeatedly shown that he doesn’t have an iota of respect for voters, especially those who are not 100% for him.
This is why Biden refused to be cordial towards a person who stated that he’d only vote for Biden in the general election. Biden’s lack of respect for voters also explains his mockery of someone’s failed marriage and decision to brand another voter as a “d*mn liar” after being asked about Ukraine.
