It is becoming increasingly clear that the liberal left isn’t too comfortable with the idea of Joe Biden taking on President Donald Trump head-on in the 2020 election.
At one time, Biden seemed to be the only clear choice. His ability to appeal to the centrist democrats of the midwest appeared to be the only path to victory against the wildly popular incumbent. But now, after a few debate performances filled with gaffes, flubs, outdated references, and two bleeding eyes, Biden’s age looks to be catching up to him.
Even liberal talk show host Stephen Colbert made mention of the former Vice President’s trouble.
“…Because I clearly don’t have a lot of time left,” Colbert continued, as the crowd laughed.
And that wasn’t all…
Colbert also noted that Biden kept mentioning Barack Obama and set up a drinking game for every time he did so.
“For those playing at home, time to take a drink,” he said, clutching a glass of scotch. “It really helps you pretend Obama’s still president.”
Colbert also ridiculed Biden for describing his rival Bernie Sanders as “president” and his comment about poor families leaving their record players on at night for their kids.
He also joked that Biden’s gaffe about “nobody should be in jail for a non-violent crime” would lead Trump to support the former vice president in 2020.
Earlier in the race, Biden indicated that he would be willing to challenge President Trump to a push-up contest during a possible head-to-head debate later in the election cycle.
After last night’s performance, we can only hope that it doesn’t get that far…for Joe’s sake.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
