Things are getting tense as we move closer to Election Day and the race is heating up in unexpected ways. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden recently talked at a drive-in rally in Flint, Michigan, about wanting to physically assault President Donald Trump when the two were in high school.
“The president likes to portray himself — I love this — he likes to portray himself as a tough guy. When you were in high school, wouldn’t you have liked to take the shot? Anyway, that’s a different story,” Biden said.
Ironically enough, this comment was made in the middle of Biden’s speech about “unity.” On the background of the stage, you can see a campaign sign saying “battle for the soul of the nation.” Inciting violence shouldn’t come as a surprise from the radical left when their followers are doing just that out on the streets of many major cities. They “justify” their violence in the names of people they don’t know and burn down their communities and businesses for the “sake of a better future.”
All of this is coming from the guy who flips out on people anytime they say something remotely true about his family or ask about the Hunter Biden email allegations. He has emphasized “love is more powerful than hate” many times, including when he accepted the Democratic presidential candidate nomination.
This isn’t the first time Biden has talked about fighting President Trump. Back in 2016 when campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the former vice president talked about how he wished he and the Republican nominee were in high school together so that he could take him out “behind the gym.”
“The press always asks me, don’t I wish I were debating him? No, I wish I were in high school, I could take him behind the gym. That’s what I wish,” Biden said.
President Trump recently recalled those comments from the Pennsylvania rally over the weekend at one of his campaign rallies by referencing one of Hunter Biden’s reported emails which call Joe Biden “the big guy.”
“The big guy, ‘the big guy,’ they call him. He’s not a big guy. Do you remember like a year ago, year and a half ago, he said ‘I’d like to take him to the back of the barn,” President Trump asked the crowd. Trump then jokingly makes a hand gesture of poking Biden and the political rival falling down. “A slight slap, you don’t have to close your fist,” Trump said.
It’s been an interesting election season and I have a feeling we haven’t even seen the strangest quarrels yet.
