Joe Biden Literally LOLs At Trump Declaring Himself The “Law And Order Candidate”

While at a campaign event on Monday, presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump declared himself “the law and order candidate” while referencing the spate of high-profile shootings that took place last week. The speech was supposed to be focused primarily on veterans’ issues, but with the news shifting to Black Lives Matter protests and Dallas cops being shot, the former reality TV star wanted to mention that he’d Make America Safe Again, but in a very “compassionate” way.

Well, at least one person got a hearty laugh out of this. During an interview on ABC’s Good Morning America, Vice-President Joe Biden couldn’t contain himself when asked by host George Stephanopoulos about Trump’s remarks. After the morning host mentioned that the real estate mogul had referred to himself as the “law and order candidate” — shades of Richard Nixon there —  and that he’d make the country safe, Biden flashed a toothy grin and literally LOL’d.

When asked by George if that was his actual response, the Veep said the following:

“Well, I’d rather not make this story about Donald Trump, so I’m going to restrain myself, but the truth of the matter is that one of the problems we’ve had is getting funding for law enforcement from his party, and maybe he’ll come forward and be supportive of more support for community policing.”

Smilin’ Joe isn’t the only one who has a hard time taking Trump serious on this. Considering that The Donald’s whole campaign has centered on white resentment, racial divisiveness, hateful rhetoric and scapegoating minorities, claiming he’s going to bring law and order through compassion comes across as a tad unbelievable. On top of that, the whole thing is just a racist dog whistle, as his white nationalist base knows just what he’s saying.
