WaPo Columnist: Biden Is Better Than ‘This Lunatic In The White House, This Family Of Grifters’

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson believes former Vice President Joe Biden can restore some normality to American politics. Speaking on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Friday, Robinson drew a stark contrast between President Donald Trump and Biden.

The panel watched a clip from Biden’s campaign announcement  video followed by Trump’s comments on it, attacking the Obama administration for being divisive and touting his accomplishments. The discussion concerned the contrast.

“Actually, everything he [Trump] just said there was actually false, except for the fact, Mika, that there were divisions during the Obama era but he took a bad situation and made it worse,” Joe Scarborough said.

“I think what Trump’s tweets and his sound bites on Fox about Biden’s roll out video, gave us the chance to show America exactly what he was talking about and put those sound bites side by side and hear Biden talking about the soul of America and choosing his words so carefully and then an idiot riffing with absolutely no intelligence or preparation behind it” Mika Brzezinski said. “What do you want, America? Here it is. Side by side. Take a look, take a listen. Make your choice.”

“If you were in court , a defense attorney or whatever, you’d say, ‘Your honor, I rest my case’ after those statements but of course Joe Biden can’t rest his case,” Robinson said.

“I really liked the announcement video. I thought putting the crisis at center stage, we must get rid of Donald Trump, he is doing tremendous damage to the country, potentially lasting damage to the country if he’s allowed to stay in office an additional four years, it will be much, much worse.”

“And to paint himself as a guy who can stop the madness, who can end this and who can get us back on a course where we can have intelligent debate about healthcare policy and about foreign policy and about defense spending and all the things that we should argue about rather than dealing with this lunatic in the White House, this family of grifters that have attached themselves, like leeches, to the White House.”
