Trump To Biden At First Presidential Debate: ‘There’s Nothing Smart About You’

President Donald Trump mocked Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden’s academic record Monday night during the first presidential debate in Cleveland, slipping in the comment, “There’s nothing smart about you, Joe.”

When debate moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News asked the candidates about COVID-19 and how each candidate plans to deal with it, Biden attempted to discredit Trump’s efforts to protect the American people.

Biden accused Trump of completely mishandling the pandemic and causing the deaths of many Americans.

“A lot of people died. And a lot more are going to die unless he gets a lot smarter a lot quicker,” Biden said, continuing to blame Trump for COVID-19 and its effect on the American people and the economy.

Trump responded by pointing out that Biden couldn’t even remember where he went to college.

“Did you use the word smart?” Trump asked. “So you said you went to Delaware State but you forgot the name of your college. You didn’t go to Delaware State. You graduated either the lowest or almost the lowest in your class.”

Trump continued his time by accusing Biden of wasting his almost 50 years as an elected official.

“Don’t ever use the word smart with me. Don’t ever use that word because you know what, there’s nothing smart about you, Joe. Forty-seven years you’ve done nothing. And if you would have had the charge of what I was put through, I had to close the greatest economy in the history of our country and by the way, it’s being built again,” Trump said.

“Oh give me a break,” Biden replied, rolling his eyes.

Minutes later, Biden charged Trump of being the “worst president America has ever had.”
