Whether he is so desperate he’s flailing, sucking up to the hard left, and/or just so mentally enfeebled he has no idea what he’s saying, Joe Biden decided on Wednesday to insult and degrade the very country he wants to lead.

FNC: “Joe Biden was facing intense backlash Wednesday night for referring to America as an ‘idea’ that ‘we’ve never lived up to.’ The Democratic nominee shared a clip from his interview on the podcast ‘Unlocking Us with Brené Brown,’ which was released earlier in the day. ‘America was an idea, an idea,’ Biden said. ‘We hold these truths to be self evident.

“When my father lay wounded on a beach in the Pacific defending his country in World War II, America more than lived up to her promise. When Americans walked on the moon, we were the brightest star in the firmament. If you weren’t owned by China, you might love this country, too,” said actor James Woods.

“‘We’ve never lived up to it’? Speak for yourself, man!”  Center for American Liberty founder Harmeet Dhillon emphasized. “This immigrant is so grateful to be an American — and I never diss her or take her for granted.” Well said Mr. Dhillon.
