Floundering frontrunner Joe Biden continues to step in it and did so again with a peculiar statement on Russian election meddling.
Democrats, the corrupt media and loony celebs galore have spent two and a half years pushing the conspiracy theory that President Trump colluded with the Kremlin and that Russia meddled in the 2016 election.
While the Mueller investigation and subsequent report drove a stake through the heart of the collusion delusion it still claimed that the Russkies interfered in the election largely by buying social media ads.
While the idea that the small amount of ads could swing an election is ludicrous, Mueller nonetheless indicted multiple Russians who will never get their day in court and the election meddling has become gospel with both the zany left and many conservatives and is accepted as the irrefutable truth.
But not according to Biden who said that it would have been permitted during the Obama regime’s reign of error.
During Floppy Joe’s interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo that aired last Friday, the candidate attacked Russian leader Vladimir Putin and said this.
Via The Washington Free Beacon, “Biden: Russian Election Interference Wouldn’t Have Happened During the Obama Administration”:
Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed that Russian election interference would not have happened when he was Vice President during a Friday interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo.
Biden said Russian President Vladimir Putin is trying to undermine U.S. elections while undermining elections throughout Europe.
“Look at what’s happening with Putin. While Putin is trying to undo our elections, he is undoing elections in Europe. Look what’s happened in Hungary, look what’s happening in Poland, look what’s happening,” Biden said. “Do you think that would happen on my watch or Barack’s watch? You can’t answer that, but I promise you it wouldn’t have. And it didn’t.”
The Russian interference in the 2016 election did occur while Obama and Biden were both in office.
That the interference has now been accepted as holy gospel – although never proved that the orders came from Putin – has opened Biden up to much criticism over his assertion that it would have never occurred on his and Obama’s watch.
Russian interference in America’s elections happened on Obama and Biden’s watch. That’s irrefutable. Even CBS News admitted Obama knew about Russian meddling. https://t.co/ZykkTtKm7g

Chalk Biden up for another unforced error, if anyone should have understood the level of fear and paranoia that has been ginned up over Russian election meddling it should be him.
Yet he is being hoisted upon his own petard over what given the consensus, is either a flat out lie or just another one of his senior moments that have put his campaign in serious jeopardy.
