Sometimes there’s just too much good stuff out there to stop at one.
A combination of utterly clueless lack of self awareness, hypocrisy and senility are not good traits for a person who wants to be President.
In an interview on the widespread anti-racism protests sweeping America, Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden said that despite 10 to 15% of Americans being “not very good people,” the country would overcome its divisions.
Biden made the remark in an online town hall event Thursday night, moderated by actor Don Cheadle, in which he spoke of the need to unite the country. Ryan Wilson, CEO of The Gathering Spot, a cultural private-membership group, was also present in the discussion.
“Do we really think that this is as good as we can be as a nation? I don’t think the vast majority of people think that. There are probably anywhere from 10 to 15 percent of the people out there that are just not very good people,” Biden said.
“But that’s not who we are. The vast majority of people are decent. We have to appeal to that and we have to unite people.”
Some critics pointed out that those remarks echoed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” comment four years ago.
