Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden appears to believe that America pretty much sucks, but that maybe, just maybe, it could suck a little less with him at the helm.

Early Wednesday, he sat for an interview with feminist Brené Brown, the host of the eponymously titled “Unlocking Us with Brené Brown” podcast.

During that interview, he trashed the United States of America — the same country he’s hoping to lead — by claiming it’s “never lived up to” its ideals.

But instead of just letting the remarks stay on the podcast — kind of like how what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas — Biden decided to broadcast it to the entire world.

He accomplished this by reposting an audio clip from the show to his Twitter feed. But not just any audio clip — rather, the clip of him trashing America.


“America was an idea, an idea. We hold these truths to be self-evident. We’ve never lived up to it, but we’ve never walked away from it before,” he said in the clip above.

“And I just think we have to be more honest and let our kids know as we raise them what actually did happen, acknowledge our mistakes so we don’t repeat them.”

It was a stunning statement, and not just because it cast America as some foregone idea, but because the left’s embrace of the 1619 Project proves that it’s them who seek to not “let our kids know … what actually did happen” in American history.

As of Thursday morning, the tweet boasted almost twice as many comments as retweets, meaning it’d been effectively “ratioed.” In fact, it had almost as many comments — around 17,000 — as likes, which were around 25,000 at the time.

Meanwhile, the post boasted about 9,500 retweets, but even most of them appeared to be negative.

Case in point:

Note the question posed by Jon Gabriel: “Is there a market outside the far-left for this America-bashing drivel?”

Truth be told, there may not even be a market outside of America where one can find as much “American-bashing drivel.”

One certainly would have difficulty finding it in the U.K., where British commentator Piers Morgan recently warned Biden that he’ll be “history” unless Democrats distance themselves from the discredited 1619 Project and stop trashing America.

Trump is right, the 1619 Project promotes fake history and if Democrats keep trying to make Americans feel ashamed of Independence Day and back BLM protesters who scream at white diners, Biden will be history too,” he opined last month.

He added that this would be a great boon for President Donald Trump.

“As I’ve written before, the struggling President is desperate for the election in November not to be a referendum on his woeful handling of the coronavirus pandemic which has cost nearly 200,000 American lives and devastated the economy,” he wrote.

If he can make it about liberals trying to make Americans ashamed of their history, it will be a vote-winner for him. Yet liberals seem totally oblivious to this and continue to perform acts of stupendous political self-harm.”

Morgan’s remarks about the president’s allegedly “woeful handling of the coronavirus pandemic” prove that he’s no Trump groupie or sycophant. Yet even he sees the writing on the wall vis-a-vis the left’s embrace of anti-Americanism.

Biden clearly doesn’t. Or at least he didn’t. Perhaps after he views the avalanche of negative comments that have erupted in response to his tweet, he’ll wake up.

Or maybe not …
