Biden Slams Trump as ‘Literally an Existential Threat to America’ in Iowa Speech

Former Vice President Joe Biden has been criticizing President Donald Trump at almost every opportunity; and the most recent moment came during a speech in Iowa on Tuesday when the former vice president spoke to voters in the Hawkeye state.

Biden told the audience, “I believe that the president is literally an existential threat to America for three reasons — one, he is a genuine threat to our core values,” he said as he went on to talk about Trump’s response to Charlottesville, in which the president said that there were “very fine people on both sides.”

Biden’s Iowa speech was a pretty hard hit on Trump, who was a central figure in his remarks and has primarily been the antagonist in Biden’s entire campaign. During the most recent speech, Biden mentioned Trump on a whopping 76 occasions, according to Axios.

Trump apparently heard about the large number of name-drops that he received from Biden and criticized him during a brief set of remarks in front of the White House.

The president told reporters, “When a man has to mention my name 76 times in a speech, that means he’s in trouble. I have to tell you he’s a different guy […] so, when he mentions my name that many times, I guess I should be complimented.”

Over the past few years, Biden has continuously criticized Trump, specifically taking issue with Trump’s response to Charlottesville. He has said that he intended to keep out of the news in the first year of Trump’s presidency but that changed after Charlottesville when he decided that he “couldn’t stay silent.”

Trump has said that he actually condemned the neo-Nazis at Charlottesville but Biden isn’t buying that. Last month, he accused the president of “concocting a phony story” when talking about his response to the Charlottesville riots, which left a woman dead after violent altercations.

Joe knows existential threat. He’s literally one to any and all women and underage females….and he just did it again.

At least he’s a cis-het molester. You won’t see him invading the space of a male, sniffing his hair, or nuzzling his neck.

Joe knows that a beatdown, even with secret service protection and no gym available, would occur if he did so.

Does Joe know the meaning of existential threat? Those Democrats have for the past two years painted President Trump as a dullard, uncouth, a simpleton, an ignoramus, or an oaf. He’s also been called, crude, gross, and loutish. The Democrats need to make up their minds. They can’t have it both ways.
