Given that he was an understudy to Barack Obama for eight years, Joe Biden learned from one of the best when it comes to audacity.
During an appearance Tuesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Biden was asked by anchor Robin Roberts, who cited President Trump’s motto, “Make America Great Again,” if he had a motto of his own.
Displaying the creativity of a rock, Biden replied, “Make America moral again. Make America return to the essence of who we are, the dignity of the country, the dignity of people, treating our people with dignity.”
Imagine that, creepy Uncle Joe is going to lead a moral resurgence in America — it was enough to prompt a good laugh from Fox News host Laura Ingraham.
“There was a laugh-out-loud moment this morning,” Ingraham said. “It’s Joe Biden and his presidential pitch on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Actually, there were several knee slappers, but I’m trying to restrain myself here.”
She played a clip of Roberts asking Biden about his own motto.
“Joe Biden is gonna make us moral again,” Ingraham then asked. “Now is this the same Joe Biden who was driven out of the race for the presidency years ago amid charges of plagiarism? Or is this the same Catholic Joe who has evolved away from his core teaching of his faith? Remember Joe was once pro-life and even voted for partial-birth abortion bans in 97 and 2003, but only when that ban was upheld in 2007 by the Supreme Court — well Catholic Joe evolved a bit.”
She then played a clip of Biden opposing the ruling, before noting several bishops have denied Biden communion in their diocese.
“Now he is lecturing us on morality?” Ingraham asked.
After counting how many times Biden said the word “dignity,” the Fox News opinion host nailed the angle the former vice president is trying to capture in his run for the White House.
“Dignity? Let’s face it, Biden, he’s kind of a fun person… I’m sure he’s a nice guy, but at age of 76, he’s coming across as just kind of a rambling, doddering less cool version of Obama,” she said.
Ingraham offered a refresher of Obama’s infamous smear of small-town America: “They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
“Now we’re supposed to believe that those bitter clingers are going to look to ‘Ramblin Joe’ to return their dignity,” Ingraham said. “The argument Biden’s basically trying to make here is, ‘I’m nicer than mean old Trump, so vote for me.'”
She went on to comically tag today’s Democratic Party as “the self-appointed, self-anointed leaders of a new liberal moral majority.”
