Joe Biden’s gaffes are no laughing matter, Donald Trump Jr. warns.
The former vice president’s episodes of confusion are an indicator that leftists like Kamala Harris “will be in charge” if Biden is elected president, Trump Jr. told the Washington Examiner.
Don Jr: Biden’s campaign should “scare us”
In a speech Monday, Biden scoffed at the idea that he’s a “radical socialist with a soft spot for rioters,” but according to Trump Jr., it doesn’t much matter where Biden stands on the political spectrum.
In an interview with the Washington Examiner, Trump Jr. repeated the charge made by his father that Biden is a mentally fading ‘puppet’ of the far-left, speculating that the media “loves Joe Biden” because they believe they can mislead voters about the fact that the more radical Harris “will be in charge.”
For starters, Harris supports banning fracking, one touchy issue for Biden, and she has recently come under fire for helping to bail out rioters, right as Biden seeks to dull the momentum of Trump’s “law and order” campaign.
Harris may be scary, but that’s who voters are really getting if they vote for Biden in November, Trump Jr. said.
“The media loves Joe Biden because they know that Kamala Harris will be in charge and she is left of [Sen.] Bernie [Sanders],” said Trump. “The media loves him because they can sell him as a moderate.”
Trump Jr. who is promoting a new book attacking Biden, described his book as a work of opposition research into a candidate the media refuses to cover critically.
“I realized very quickly that the media has literally just abdicated their responsibility to look into candidates on the Left,” he said.
Poll: Voters doubt Biden
A poll from the conservative Heritage Foundation found that 41 percent of respondents agree that Biden “suffers from some level of diminished mental capacity” and that his administration would be run by “very liberal socialists,” according to the Examiner. Similar polls have borne out that voters don’t need much convincing that Biden will have difficulty governing the country.
While Biden’s record already shows a tendency to “flip flop,” his health raises even more grave concerns about the consequences of a Biden victory, Trump Jr. said.
“It’d be a joke if this was a grandfather, you’d say, ‘Fine, he’s forgetful.’ This is a guy that’s a contender to hold the nuclear football. That should scare us as Americans.”
