Out of all the candidates the Democrats could have dug up, they went for Joe Biden. His own colleagues question his judgment and sound mind, yet the left is pushing him up to the podium, promising he will fix America. Well, the man who claims to be battling for the soul of America just referred to military members as “Stupid Bastards” and “Slow.” But don’t take our word for it, watch the video.
Joe Biden called the Military “stupid bastards”
Looking forward to an article in the Atlantic about this! https://t.co/E0dBFKk9At

In the video, Biden is talking to a group of soldiers overseas as his wife Jill stands close by. The video was shot during one of Biden’s overseas trips in March of 2016. Biden can clearly be heard saying, “And I want you to know notwithstanding what you may hear about me, I have incredibly good judgment. One, I married Jill. And two, I appointed Johnson to the academy. I just want you to know that. Clap for that, you stupid bastards.”
The small clip quickly went viral and the left was stuck with damage control. Since going viral, the video has circulated millions of times with other versions coming to light. In the video featured below, Biden continues his “Stupid Bastards” comment by then referring to the whole group of soldiers as “slow.”

As for damage control, President Trump and many other Republicans tweeted out the video and messages calling for Biden to apologize. Instead, Biden’s campaign released a statement calling the whole video a joke. While they surprisingly authenticated the footage, Andrew Bates, a spokesperson for the campaign said, “Vice President Biden was jokingly encouraging the audience to clap for an airwoman on the stage, and a number of service members can be seen laughing and smiling at the comment.”
The video comes to light just days before President Trump and Joe Biden are scheduled to debate. The first debate will happen Tuesday night at 9 pm. Many of Biden’s supporters have called for him to boycott the debate, knowing the tactics Trump used in 2016. Still, those close to Biden are worried that not showing up will encourage the “Sleepy” Joe Biden persona that has followed him this entire election.
