After his presidential seemingly languished for months, former Vice President Joe Biden’s bid for the Democratic Party’s nomination appears to be on the upswing following his win in the South Carolina primary this past weekend.
That fact doesn’t seem to concern Eric Trump, though, because during a recent appearance on “Fox & Friends,” the president’s son predicted that his “father would destroy [Biden] on the debate stage” should they face off this November.
Over the course of his campaign, Biden has made a long series of bizarre claims and committed countless verbal gaffes in a pattern that shows no sign of slowing.
At a rally on Monday, Biden botched an attempt to quote a line from the Declaration of Independence, saying, “We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women are created, by the, you know, you know the thing.”
The line in question actually reads, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
During a debate held in advance of the South Carolina primary, Biden suggested that the equivalent of nearly half the U.S. population has been killed as a result of gun violence in this country.
“150 million people have been killed since 2007 when Bernie voted to exempt the gun manufacturers from liability, more than all the wars, including Vietnam from that point on,” he said.
In another pre-South Carolina flub, Biden told supporters that he was running for a seat in the U.S. Senate while also advising his detractors that they should “vote for the other Biden.”
During his “Fox & Friends” appearance, Trump also commented on former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s decision to exit the race, asking, “Whose soul did he sell to do that?”
He campaigns for a year to 36 hours before Super Tuesday and then drops out of the race — what was he promised by the DNC? What was he promised by Joe Biden?
“If you’re going to drop out, why not wait that last 36 hours and see how you do in 10 states? He was promised something,” Trump added.
The president’s son projected nothing but confidence after noting his belief that Michael Bloomberg is “fading” and observing that now-former candidate Tom Steyer spent millions only to end his candidacy after attracting just 1% support. “I think my father would beat any of these people,” Trump declared.
