From Deplorables to Dregs of Society [OPINION]
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but Joe Biden is an idiot.
The former Democrat Vice President displayed a bit of his low class on Saturday when, while addressing an LGBTQ event, he referred to Trump supporters as "virulent people" and the "dregs of society." That's alright, because Hillary Clinton already called us "deplorables." We didn't cry then either, Joe.
They say stupid is as stupid does, and these people must be pretty stupid. They have lost control of the presidency, the Congress and most state houses, and in order to win any of it back, they must convince Democrats and Independents who walked away to turn around and come back. I don't know about you, but I think calling them names might not be the best strategy.
Joe Biden is a crass loudmouth. He puts his hands all over women and kids, and was even run out of one of the two presidential campaigns he was involved in for plagiarizing someone else's campaign speech. As for Hillary Clinton, she is just a nasty, bitter old lady who lost a race that everyone said she couldn't lose. And she can't get over it.
I, for one, hope these fools on the left keep calling us names. It's like the glue that keeps the base together, and it helps to attract new supporters every day.
Hey Joe Biden, show some respect for your opponents. Especially when they are cleaning your clock across the board. It is a BFD, you know!
