The press secretary to former President George W. Bush blasted 2020 Democratic presidential primary candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden as always being “wrong” on the most important issues.
During an appearance on “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday, former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer reacted to a clip of Biden’s infamous comment from the 2012 presidential election in which he said to a crowd that was significantly made up of African-American individuals that Republicans would “put y’all back in chains” if Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) were elected to the presidency over former President Barack Obama.

Fleischer lambasted the former vice president’s comments as “the worst thing ever,” saying that Biden had said “the most divisive thing you can possibly imagine” when he has been styled as a “unifier.”
He also stated that he would “never forgive” Biden for claiming Republicans wanted to “recreate slavery”:
“Of all my years in politics, Joe Biden is the one who said the worst thing ever when he went to an African-American audience and said about Republicans, ‘They want to put y’all back in chains.’
“This man — who is supposed to be a moderate, who is supposed to be a unifier — said the most divisive thing you can possibly imagine: that I, and other Republicans, want to recreate slavery, put blacks back in chains? You cannot call him a unifier when he speaks like that. I will never forgive him for it.”

The former White House press secretary was then pressed on what Biden was “like as a person.”
“He’s an affable, enjoyable fellow, but he’s always wrong,” Fleischer said. “The only difference between Joe Biden and socialists — socialists are wrong yesterday and tomorrow, Joe Biden’s always been wrong. You can look at his voting record for 40 years, he gets almost every big issue backwards.”
The North Korean state media blasted Biden on Tuesday as “bereft of elementary quality as a human being” after he had criticized North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un during a campaign rally in his native Pennsylvania.
