Beer-guzzling, profanity-spewing Biden campaign spox tells ‘what really happened in Ukraine’

Screengrab Biden 2020

Looking to capitalize on the Democrats’ “somber” impeachment of President Donald Trump, Joe Biden’s campaign released a video Tuesday as the Senate trial got underway.

The ad featured Biden 2020 Rapid Response Director Andrew Bates slamming beers in a bar while spewing profanities about “what really happened in Ukraine.”

The first sign Bates may have had one too many is he claimed Trump is “terrified” to face Biden in November.

Bates lays out a timeline of events, justifying why his boss caused Viktor Shokin to be fired from his job as Prosecutor General of Ukraine. He celebrates Biden as a hero for removing the man who was investigating a Ukrainian gas company that paid his son, Hunter Biden, up to $50,000 a month to sit on its board.

(Bates fails to mention the generous stipend.)

As great a feat as Biden taking on Corn Pop, a gang leader, we are to believe. Bates stressed that in getting Shokin fired, Biden was advancing U.S. policy at the time — a “monumental” victory, he declared.

“Everyone from the EU to the IMF, Republican senators, the entire anti-corruption activist community in Ukraine, desperately wanted him fired,” Bates said. “He was being protested in the streets and Joe Biden was the person who got him out of office.”

As for President Trump’s assertion that Biden’s actions should be scrutinized, Bates said, “The clinical term for that is horsesh*t.”

He claimed the investigation of Burisma Holdings had fallen dormant more than a year earlier. Flipping the narrative on its head, Bates said removing Shokin “meant it was more likely” that the company would face scrutiny.

Bates dismissed the younger Biden’s largess by saying Burisma was already being investigated when he came on board as if this lessens the alleged corruption at play.

“If it sounds like this is all really loose, that’s because it is. It’s bullsh*t,” he said.

“Donald Trump was caught red-handed undermining our national security in trying to force a foreign country to smear the candidate he’s terrified of running against,” Bates declared.

He cited the whistleblower to say his concerns were “corroborated,” and ran a clip of the president speaking on the matter to say Trump admitted wrongdoing,

“His objective was to force Ukraine to spread a comprehensively debunked right-wing conspiracy theory about the vice president,” Bates insisted.

Proving how tone-deaf he is, Bates cited the Washington Post fact-checker, as if the newspaper has a shred of credibility when it comes to reporting on Trump

Another sign Bates slammed one beer too many was his theory on what motivated the president.

“Why is Donald Trump doing this? He can’t beat Joe Biden,” he said, without cracking a smile. “So he did something that literally no American president ever in our history, not even Richard Nixon, ever stooped to, he tried to make our national security policy an extension of his struggling re-election campaign.”

Struggling reelection campaign.” Seriously? Is that the best the Biden campaign has?

Naturally, the Biden campaign video drew praise from the Washington Post’s alleged “conservative” columnist Jennifer Rubin.

Overall, though, the online response makes you wonder who on the campaign made the decision to open this can of worms?

Here’s a quick sampling of responses from Twitter:
