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.

quick question to all those who harp on the “grab them by the pussy” video.

Why don’t you say a single damn word about Biden’s public fondling of women/girls? Why don’t you say anything about the TWO credible rape claims brought against Lt. Gov. Fairfax?

Shades of Slick Willie. It only counts if the perpetrator is NOT a Dim.

You need to actually read left leaning media before knocking everyone on the left. These concerns about Biden and women voters are all over the place.

Aside from the fact that I DO read sources on the Left (mostly for laughs), I was SPECIFICALLY addressing those who harp on words over actions. Please don’t fall into the Phyllis trap and pretend you know everything that everyone else does or thinks. She’s NOT Lamont Cranston or Professor X.

Haven’t you seen those same posts about the video here on IJR? Yet those posters go mute when addressing actual actions.

When you say, “not a single damn word” written about Bidden then i didn’t think i was making an assumption that you weren’t reading the large number of articles written about Biden. 😉

He may poll well overall, but the far left Democrats are not fans of him. I think the moderates tend to like Biden more which is why his polling seems to be higher.

Again, I’m speaking of the posters here and, indirectly, the MSM, which reveled in the #METOO movement.

Well, as a poster on this site that was a supporter of #metoo, that’s the best response i could give to your post.

IMO Biden, as an *ahem”* moderate has greater electability than the rest of the Socialist/ Commie wannabes. Unfortunately, neither his scandals, nor his hard pandering to the Left, nor his flip-flopping on issues he once supported are receiving MSM coverage.

He’s the big target. Sanders, Warren, and The Butt have already denounced him. Competing for the nomination is truly a blood sport.

The knives are out.

Yeah – i think he has a better chance of winning, it doesn’t mean I’m a supporter though. He likely won’t have my vote for the primaries.

I don’t know, i get my news from an app that pulls from left and right news sources. I see a lot more critical of biden than supporting, but I’m probably missing a lot from CNN or MSNBC.

I don’t have TV, so CNN and MSNBC are out.

What sources do you see where Biden is called on his actions? He IS definitely not beloved by the far-Left.

Phoenix

Vox and Slate def do not like him. But I’ve seen a lot of articles that are less than positive. I see some articled today that aren’t all the positive on Politico.

I use the Smart News app, so sometimes i just scan through headlines if I’m in a hurry and don’t always take note on who writes it.

I tend to avoid “gatekeeping” services. I’d rather get “poop” straight from the sources, even if they themselves are gatekeepers.

I included Slate and Vox for years (they aren’t exactly new), but now I mostly go for the laughs with the occasional undigested corn kernel of truth.

Since you brought up poop earlier did you know that ancient sources like the Sumerians and the Ayurveda actually diagnosed health by bowel movements? It makes sense. Nowadays we have fecal transplants.

Well, the app sends you to the site to read the article. I just don’t always take note on sources of articles i don’t read. I don’t read Vox or Slate, but headlines i skimmed show their dislike.

Lol – no please, don’t reduce my online discussions to poop talk too! I’m soon to be wadding into potty training waters. I can’t have poop talks on here too! 😀

Also, what are your thoughts on Joe’s wandering hands or Fairfax’s accusers? As the father of daughters I can say with certainty that the Secret Service would wrestle me to the ground if he tried that on one of mine.

Where’s Joe’s #METOO moment? He’s STILL doing it, most recently to a 10-yr. old.

I think he is a creepily touchy feely guy and i think his actions are highly inappropriate, especially for public office.

Am i going to vote for Biden in the primary? No. If it came to Trump or Biden in the election then since i find both distasteful on that front I’ll need to put higher factoring on my other election concerns when voting.

There’s a certain double-standard at play. Roy Moore was pilloried (rightly so) for dating underage girls. Yet here’s Joe publicly (if not pubically) fondling unwilling women and girls.

I agree that higher-factors count BUT there are certain character flaws which should not be discounted.

You’ll have to explain to me how allegations against Biden are any more credible than allegations against the president. Why would Biden allegations discount him but not Trump? They both (biden & Trump) are disgusting to me in that aspect – so the best i can do is not vote for Biden in the primaries and then hope he doesn’t win. I agree, those flaws should not be discounted but in a Trump vs. Biden ticket i will need to disregard all the sexual allegations from both and pick who i feel would be the best president. As for Roy… Read more »

The acts of Biden, pere, and Biden, fils, are out there in the public and military record, on video, and in the MSM. They are anything but allegations. In the interests of “multiculturalism” (yeah, right) it is NOT uncommon in many cultures for much older men to date much younger women. q.v. Mohamed’s marriage to Ayesha when he was 53 and she was 9-10. Yes, I expect to be fatwahed shortly. The modern Western cultural context goes “Eww!” and rightly so in my belief. But it happens/happened. A repulsion to feces, human or otherwise, is almost universal except for certain… Read more »

You haven’t addressed my question of Biden vs Trump.

Also, when did Biden assault someone that would be military record? I can’t find that, though may be I’m not looking in the right spot.

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.
