Whoever tweets for 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden is NOT doing him any favors.
Less than zero, actually.
Here’s the tweet:

A team of highly paid adults brainstormed and finally all decided this tweet was a good idea. https://t.co/rRdm0npytS

This is the SADDEST ducking thing I’ve ever seen in politics.
Can someone fire all the Onion writers who are running these campaigns/the country?

Whose idea was this? Unless an endorsement from the former president is already baked in, fire the staffer. https://t.co/LN7nYH9yaN

It’s amazing to see how far left Democrats have moved in the past 10 years or so.
Biden claimed in 2006 that nobody should be given amnesty and that immigrants should learn to speak English.
Is that going to be a problem for voters next November if Biden takes the Democrat nomination?
Old soundbites are coming back to haunt Joe. That shouldn’t be a huge surprise, given the former vice president’s propensity for gaffes.
This latest unearthed clip shows Joe sounding a lot like President Trump when it comes to illegal immigration, even slamming “corrupt Mexico.”
A review of rhetoric from Joe Biden’s record on immigration. It included boasting about needing a 700 mile fence to stop “tons…tons…tons” of drugs from “corrupt Mexico” in 2006. Jailing employers who hire “illegals” and not allowing sanctuary cities.

WATCH as Biden takes credit for Trump’s economy:
Joe Biden: “I know President Trump likes to take credit for the economy… Just look at the facts, not the alternative facts. President Trump inherited an economy from Obama-Biden administration that was given to him — just like he inherited everything else in his life.”

How dare he?
Obama did nothing for eight years and Joe is intent on running on his “legacy,” huh?
Barack has been gone for nearly two and a half years and people still claim President Trump inherited the Democrat’s economy. SMH.
What a joke.
Biden had better be careful. Trump just tossed a major threat his way.
From The Hill:
President Trump said Friday it would be “appropriate” for him to discuss opening an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden and his family with Attorney General William Barr.
Trump told Politico in an interview Friday that he hasn’t talked with Barr about investigating Biden and his family’s business dealings but said “certainly it would be an appropriate thing” to bring up with the attorney general.
“Certainly it is a very big issue and we’ll see what happens. I have not spoken to him about it. Would I speak to him about it? I haven’t thought of that. I mean, you’re asking me a question I just haven’t thought of,” he told the outlet.
The president noted that it could be “a very big situation” for Biden, who has led the Democratic presidential primary field in polling since he launched his campaign last month.
“Because he’s a Democrat it’s about 1/100 the size of the fact that if he were a Republican, it would be a lot bigger,” Trump alleged.
Margaret Thatcher, the former conservative prime minister of the United Kingdom, passed away in 2013.
At a recent campaign stop, Biden said Thatcher recently gave him a call to voice concerns about Donald Trump.
Hmm. How would that work, Joe?
A donor urged the former vice president to respond with his own nicknames for Trump, but Biden said he’d aim to keep discourse at a higher level. “The only place he has any confidence is in the mud. The only thing he doesn’t know how to respond to is issues and specifics,” he said.
Even so, at another point in his response to the question, Biden referred to Trump as a “no good S.O.B.” who would likely turn to attacking his children and grandchildren, “the last people I want to go through” what Trump is likely to hurl their way.
Biden also told donors that he’s heard from 14 heads of state from around the world who’ve voiced concerns to him about Trump. That list included Margaret Thatcher, he said, before correcting what he called a “Freudian slip,” that he was actually referring to current British Prime Minister Theresa May.

Fox News has more:
Biden’s confusing comments came Saturday during a closed-door fundraiser in Columbia, South Carolina. He listed Thatcher as one of 14 heads of state who he claimed have voiced concerns to him about Trump, the outlet reported.
May has been prime minister since 2016. Thatcher resigned as prime minister in 1990.
During his fundraiser swing in South Carolina, Biden also took a page out of Trump’s playbook on Saturday when asked if he had a nickname for the president. Biden reportedly said he didn’t want to get down in the mud with Trump, but if he had to choose a moniker for the current White House occupant it would be a “clown.”
“There’s so many nicknames I’m inclined to give this guy,” Biden said, according to Politico. “You can just start with clown.”
