Democrats Have A New Joke About Bankrupting Donald Trump Along With The Rest Of America

Joe Biden and his campaign keep telling a joke about a man under crushing debt. The punchline makes them look even worse.


In the latest attempt to make the president appear to have a beating heart, Joe Biden’s campaign has supplied him and his surrogates a joke to repeat. It goes like this: Americans are poorer now— and so is Donald Trump!

Get it?!

I promise you that’s not a mischaracterization of the absolute knee-slapper Biden and Co. have been relaying in recent days to donors and the media. To be sure, here’s how it landed last week, as reported by The Independent:

Mr Biden, who was on the second day of a three-day trip to several Western states, told attendees at the campaign event that a person had approached him to talk about a high debt burden.

‘Just the other day this defeated looking man came up to me and said: ‘Mr. President I need your help. I’m in crushing debt. I’m completely wiped out,’’ he said.

After a moment, Mr Biden delivered the punchline, telling the crowd that he had responded: ‘Donald, I’m sorry. I can’t help you.’

The fundraiser attendees, who numbered roughly 100, erupted into laughs.

The comedy continued in a campaign email blast last week referring to Trump as “Broke Don” and rhetorically asking if “trailing your opponent in cash on hand by nearly 4 to 1 and hitting up donors to help cover your own personal debts instead of funding your campaign [is] a winning formula for November.”

The Washington Post reported Tuesday the “new riff” is an attempt by Biden “to reverse the perception that his campaign is flagging and suggest it is Trump who is the feeble figure.” I guess acknowledging that your party is working to bankrupt and possibly imprison your political opponent with unrelenting lawfare is one way to do that. Haha!

It’s not so much the inadvertent admission that Democrats and Biden’s Justice Department are hoping to liquidate their opponents through endless prosecution. It’s the sadistic sense of humor it takes to think it’s funny watching a man face one financial setback after another, both big and small, as he tries to make his way. In this economy!

It would be like feeding a starving hostage raw beef and laughing each time he gags on it.

A majority of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. The amount of money people are saving from their income is half of what it averaged over the past decade because they have to spend more on everything they buy. Grocery prices are up 25 percent under Biden. Housing rent is up 20. Gas is up nearly 50.

Nobody will get misty-eyed contemplating a billionaire having his day — or 600 days — in court. But when the premise of the mockery from his political opposition relies on first admitting that unassuming people across the nation are drowning under climbing prices and debt as a direct result of the president delivering the line, that joke takes immense audacity.

Biden’s donors got a laugh.
