    So, he absolutely does not like white people who stand up for their communities, wants to see white people’s organizations stomped-out, wants to censor anything that could be possibly construed as a compliment to such individuals, to see as many non-whites as possible demographically supplant them, and so, instead of supporting one or more of the persons of color his party is running for president, he’s running against all of them-because he’s white. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what you call “Democratic Party Logic”-sound-minded and sensible, rational and reasonable, a sure sign that this party has what it takes to guide America through the challenges of the global economy, with Joe Biden at the forefront, not a hint of detachment, ready to overcome hurtles both home and abroad, thereby making America a synonym for justice, resourcefulness, invention, and virtue.

    Biden's worst enemy is Joe Biden. He may stay on the ticket if they would stop parading him around and his wife is silenced. Once the two start yapping while on campaign, it really hurts Biden's polls.

    What I saw from Biden was fearmongering wrapped in the language of idealism. There is only so far you can get by scaring people who already agree with you into action, eventually you are going to have to convince people who don't already agree with you that your ideas are can work. That is what separates Andrew Yang from the rest of the field, he makes sense to people on both the left and the right.

    CNN,MSNBC, ABC & CBS will do anything to fake the polls against Bernie, he is actually leading Biden, Harris, Booker & all the other corrupt politicians taking corporate money. We see your fake un-truths, we remember how the DNC fix the election for Clinton. Where did this deceit get us? Trump & you are willing to have him re-elected. Remember, moderate, centrists equals bought & paid for. Bernie is the answer for the little guy & you don't care.

    Tucker: Joe Biden is running a zombie campaign - CRIME BILL
    SPEECH 3:37
    (ON TVclip)

    AND BIDEN SIGNED “We have predators on our streets that society has in fact, in
    part because of its neglect, created…they are beyond the pale many of those
    people, beyond the pale. And it's a sad commentary on society. We have no
    choice but to take them out of society….a cadre of young people, tens of
    thousands of them, born out of wedlock, without parents, without supervision,
    without any structure, without any conscience developing because they literally
    … because they literally have not been socialized, they literally have not had
    an opportunity….we should focus on them now….if we don't, they will, or a
    portion of them, will become the predators 15 years from now.”

    Vlad: Ladies and Gentlemen it is my pleasure to speak to fellow comrades.
    Vlad: It has been over 2 years since Myself and KGB agent Clinton and Obama tried to interfer in the 2016 election
    Vlad: We almost had the election, we lost to folks we have to keep calling facist, racist, nazi's
    Vlad: If we keep calling Mitch (Moscow Mitch), we can start to interfer in the 2020 election, this time we will keep saying Trump is Putins puppet, everyone still believes it.
    Vlad: Remember to keep hitting and keep throwing things at conservatives, they are weak and won't fight back because they are afraid of being called Racist, Facist, Nazi's we have them where we need them to be.
    Vlad: we will keep telling everyone that I am up by 20 points in the polls against Trump, we will discourage them from voting.
    Vlad: I will still help my son get contracts with the Ukraine government
    Vlad: KGB Barack will continue to help our Russian comrades as they continue to interfer in the upcoming election.

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Joe Biden planned to spend Wednesday focusing on his official announcement that he was running for president, but the Delaware Democrat instead found himself defending remarks he made to the New York Observer about his Democratic opponents. "I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy," Biden said. "I mean, that's a storybook, man." Biden issued a statement Wednesday afternoon, saying: "I deeply regret any offense my remark in the New York Observer might have caused anyone. That was not my intent and I expressed that to Sen. Obama." Biden said he was referring to a phrase used by his mother.

    WASHINGTON - Facing criticism, potential 2008 presidential candidate Joe Biden has been forced to explain his recent remark that "I've had a great relationship. In Delaware, the largest growth in population is Indian-Americans moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking," Biden said. Biden's office said the senator admires, supports and respects the Indian-American community - and also sought to explain his gaffe.

    Tue, Aug 14, 2012 - Yahoo News - On Tuesday, speaking at a rally in Danville, Va., Vice President Joe Biden told a group of supporters that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney would "put ya’ll back in chains" if elected. The vice president was arguing that Republicans plan to "unchain Wall Street" with deregulation.
    "He said in the first hundred days, he's going to let the big banks once again write their own rules, unchain Wall Street," Biden said during a speech at the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research. "They're going to put y’all back in chains."

    Speaking at rally in New Hampshire on Wednesday, Mr Biden said: "Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice-president of the United States of America. Let's get that straight." He continued: "She's a truly close personal friend...quite frankly, it might have been a better pick than me. But she's first rate, I mean that sincerely, she's first rate."

      @Nepop rocks lmao OMG you just proved your a fool. What makes you think I'm a CNN viewer? BAHAHA 🤣! That just shows your utter lack of any political knowledge whatsoever LMFAO! You leftist whack jobs always make me bust a gut laughing with your absurd comments lol. You can't even tell the difference from a conservative to a liberal to a socialist communist like yourself. What the hell would a strong Ronald Reagen conservative like myself be listening to CNN BAHAHA 🤣! See this exactly why "No more circumcisions" Yang will never be president because you so called followers of Andrew Yang haven't a clue about politics or the world you live in. Dude you crack me up bro! I can't stop laughing😂🤤 you guys are so easy to whoop, it's like taking candy from a baby. I watch CNN for a few minutes but only to get Intel from the enemy, you always have to know what the enemy is doing and thinking, something you will learn when you grow up and move out your parents basement , but CNN pmsnbc, abc, CBS, NBC, they're all the enemy of the people. You just haven't realized it yet. The party Andrew Yang is part of, (the democratic party), along with the msm already has this primary rigged for who they want. The msm loves Andrew Yang, because he's part of the corrupt democratic party it's just that he's not the "guy" that is rigged for the primary that's all there is to it , nothing personal. Once the msm and Democrats get the person in they want they will go back loving on Yang and his Foreskin LMAO! And your be as stupid as ever and fall for it again. Bro you have to get more savvy omigo.

      ​@sb Haha, heard that about a thousand times now, from the beginning when they said Yang would never be the top 6 candidate let alone reach the primaries, well he's set to be in the primaries. Please if you call someone a fool at least come up with intelligent/un-debatable arguments not some dumb shit CNN teaches you, they said the same about all latest presidents, Clinton, Obama ,Trump and now Yang, please be original so that you don't look like a dumb MSM sheep, even though you called one of the smartest/most intelligent candidate a fool.
