It’s been a banner day for Joe Biden. Usually relegated to the dark recesses of his basement, he’s run a campaign that’s weak and cowardly, but also seemingly effective. For some reason, his handlers decided to give him access to a computer today though, and the clips have been nuts.

Earlier, he claimed Donald Trump was the “first” racist president. That isn’t true, both because Trump isn’t a racist, and because our history is filled with racist presidents, including slave traders (see Joe Biden Slips Further Into Mental Collapse, Declares Trump the ‘First’ Racist President). Not to be outdone by that bit of insanity, he went on to also claim a nurse breathed into his nostrils to “get him going” when he was once in the hospital. I’m not a medical professional, but I’m confident that’s not a thing nurses do.

Yet, Biden wasn’t done for the day. He decided to shill for China and basically accuse Americans of being stupid, racist, or both.

I love the Chinese woman giving the thumbs down when Biden talks about Trump blaming China. Perhaps that woman should reflect on her priorities. I’m all for ethnic pride. It’s one of the really cool things about America’s mix of cultures and backgrounds, but China is a dumpster fire, communist state. Anyone, including any Chinese-American, not willing to call out China’s malfeasance over this virus should explain what their logic is.

Regardless, Biden then goes on to make the silly claim that Americans see all Asian people as the same. We are apparently just big, dumb racists, and if a president talks frankly with us about what China has done, we might take it out on some South Korean or something. Wait, what?

This is infantilizing voters to a ridiculous degree. I don’t know about Biden, who can’t even tell the difference between his sister and wife, but I think most people can indeed tell the difference between someone from Vietnam and someone from Xian.

The more serious admission here is Biden insinuating he’d just lie to people and protect the Chinese communists because he doesn’t think Americans can be responsible with the truth. That strikes me as pretty insane. People don’t want to be coddled and lied to about foreign adversaries, including the Chinese. They want straight talk. China started this virus, they hid the virus, and they lied about the virus after it started to spread outside their borders. No amount of yelling at Trump will change that.

Of course, a lot of this is par for the course for Biden. He’s been shilling for the Chinese for decades. His son made millions via corrupt dealings in the country. Just a few years ago, Biden chastised those who could suggest a powerful China is a dangerous entity. This is the same guy who’s been wrong about every major foreign policy issue of the last forty years. That he’d be on the side of defending China after this pandemic isn’t surprising, but it’s disgusting nonetheless.

Joe Biden is not a person that needs to be president. He’s a person who needs a retirement home.
