After CNN decided that it was appropriate to slander Rush Limbaugh by calling him a racist, Sleepy Uncle Joe Biden jumped on the bandwagon and parrotted those same false claims.
During a CNN town hall event yesterday, Biden, who has also received a Medal of Freedom, was asked by Anderson Cooper what he thought about Rush Limbaugh receiving the same award. His answer was confusing, but one thing was clear, he slandered Rush Limbaugh as a racist and provided no evidence to support his claim.
Biden: “Look, Rush Limbaugh spent his entire time on the air dividing people, belittling people, talking about how — talking about blacks in ways, African-Americans in ways that — anyway, I do feel badly, and I mean this sincerely, that he’s suffering from a terminal illness. So he has my empathy and sympathy no matter what his background is. But the idea that he is at the State of the Union receives a medal that is of the highest honor that can be given to a civilian, I find, um, quite frankly, driven more by trying to maintain your right-wing political credentials than it is anything else. I mean, if you read some of the things that Rush has said about people, their backgrounds, their ethnicity, how he speaks to them, I don’t think he speaks — I don’t think he understands the American code of decency and honor.”
Of all people to give this answer, Vice President Biden is possibly the worst. Sleepy Uncle Joe has made a career of making inappropriate racial and other politically incorrect comments.
As recently as 2017 Biden talked about how he worked with segregationist white supremacist senators. He also made comments in front of a crowd of black voters in 2012 that Mitt Romney would “put you all back in chains.” He has said that you need a slight Indian accent to make an order at 7 Eleven (or Dunkin Donuts). Biden even attempted to give President Obama a compliment when he bumbled, “You got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”
If the media and Democrats are angry that Rush Limbaugh received the Medal of Freedom, then they should have been equally or more outraged that Vice President Biden was given the same award.
