Joe Biden on 56% of U.S. Voters: “Their Memory is Not Very Good.”
Former Vice President Joe Biden was disgruntled and dismayed by a recent Gallup poll that found that 56% of U.S. voters feel they are better off today than they were four years ago. Asked by a reporter to respond to this news – which does not obviously bode all that well for Biden’s argument that Trump has driven the country into a ditch since 2016 – Biden could only deny the reality staring him straight in the face.
“Why should people who feel that they’re better off today under a Trump administration vote for you?” asked reporter Kyle Inskeep on Monday.
“Well if they think that, they probably shouldn’t,” Biden replied. “They think- 54 percent of the American people believe they’re better off economically today than they were under our administration? Well, their memory is not very good, quite frankly.
“And in addition to that, we have a president who doesn’t share the values of most Americans,” he continued. “He’s not very honest with people. He’s flouting the conventions relative to public safety in terms of even now- not wearing a mask, a guy who has been a super spreader. But look, whatever they believe they should go out and vote. People should vote. Period.”
Right. Oh, and Biden, it’s 56%, not 54%. We know you have a hard time with numbers, and we know it might be tempting to downplay the number as much as possible, but the facts are the facts. And regardless of what the “memory” of the American people might be like, that’s the same memory they’re going to take with them into the voting booth in a few weeks, so you might want to start making an argument that doesn’t depend on some misplaced nostalgia for the Obama administration. We’re pretty sure it doesn’t exist – or at least not in the amount you’re counting on.
One person was pleased to see the results of that poll, of course.
“56% of you say that you are better off today, during a pandemic, than you were four years ago (OBiden). Highest number on record! Pretty amazing!” tweeted President Trump.
Say, since we’re on the subject of memory, let’s take another look at Biden’s, shall we? Asked by reporters whether or not Senate Democrats should focus on Amy Coney Barrett’s Catholic faith during the confirmation hearings, Biden gave us this classic: “You may remember, I got in trouble when we were running against the senator who was a Mormon, the governor, OK? And I took him on.”
Um, yeah, that guy’s name is Mitt Romney, Joe.
But, you know, after watching “200 million” of his countrymen die from COVID, we guess it’s to be expected that Joe Biden would suffer from some cognitive shock.
