Former Vice President Joe Biden decided to head to Germany to bash America because apparently doing so on U.S. soil just isn’t enough.
According to Biden, the United States is “an embarrassment.”
From Washington Examiner:
Speaking on German soil 75 years after the U.S. and its allies prepared for D-Day, Joe Biden described America as “an embarrassment” and its trade policies “self-defeating.”
“The America I see values basic human decency, not snatching children from their parents or turning our back on refugees at our border. Americans know that’s not right,” the former vice president and potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate told the Munich Security Conference. “The American people understand plainly that this makes us an embarrassment. The American people know, overwhelmingly, that it is not right. That it is not who we are.”
Biden, 76, speaking at the annual gathering of foreign policy leaders, didn’t mention Trump by name. But, despite a longstanding tradition of politics “stopping at the water’s edge” and refraining from criticizing a commander-in-chief while on foreign soil, Biden took the opportunity to blast him, even veering into criticism of domestic policy as he launched into what sounded like a stump speech.

Hasn’t anyone told Joe that the economy is thriving, there’s no risk of nuclear war with North Korea, and that minority unemployment is at record lows?
That’s allllll because of President Trump and Republican policies, Joe.
Barack Obama’s VP sure seems to want to run for president against Donald Trump in 2020. He just hasn’t made it completely official yet.
According to Biden, though, he’s the “most qualified person in the country to be president.”
From Fox News:
Former Vice President Joe Biden said he would decide if he’s running for president in 2020 soon. But in the meantime, he’s confident he is up for the job.
Biden: “I think I’m the most qualified person in the country to be president. The issues that we face as a country today are the issues that I’ve worked on my whole life.”
Biden, 76, was at the University of Montana in Missoula Monday to promote his book, “Promise Me, Dad.” He said he would rely on his family to help him decide whether he’ll run for president in 2020.
“No one doubts what I say; the problem is I sometimes say all that I mean. The question is what kind of nation are we becoming?”
While campaigning for Democrat Senator Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota, Biden suggested her opponent, Rep. Kevin Cramer, be beat up.
Biden noted: “As my brother, who loves to use lines from movies, a John Wayne movie, there’s a good line in a movie, a John Wayne movie where the Indian chief turns to John Wayne and says ‘this is a lying dog-faced pony soldier.'”
He continued: “Well, let me tell ya, these guys are [inaudible], they just stand up, flat out, stand up and say things that are absolutely mind-boggling,” Biden continued. “I love this one on trade, this I love, and by the way, I told you I come from an agricultural state, I don’t know how you can possibly get elected in an agricultural state with the things he is saying.”

While campaigning for Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson and gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum in Florida, Biden thought he was in Miami, thanking the crowd.
Joe wasn’t in Miami.
In fact, he was 280 miles from Miami.
