It’s another day in 2020, and that means it’s another day wondering what the hell the former Vice President is trying to say. economic intercourse
When Joe loses in November, perhaps the Obamas could launch a Netflix series called “Joe Says The Darnedest Things.” [Dear Barry: I expect royalties for that idea. D.M. me on Twitter, and I’ll send you my PayPal deets.]
Seriously, though… this is the guy that the Democrats think can beat President Trump?
At what point does the Partisan Press pushing Biden to run for President officially become elder abuse? He doesn’t even really seem to want the job as much as ensuring that Trump doesn’t get a second term.
But now that he’s the only one left, it’s becoming clear why he wasn’t the nominee the other two times that he ran–he is an awful candidate. He’s so bad it’s almost making me nostalgic for Hillary.
It’s bad enough that Biden’s speech is frequently garbled these days. Still, he’s obviously bewildered, often relying on notes for basic information, and frankly, he’s looking more and more like Jeff Dunham’s Walter dummy (see above), only less coherent…
(Tell me I’m wrong. Go ahead.)
…but he’s also just saying stuff that’s even weirder than what he used to say. These aren’t your normal, everyday Bidenisms.
This one, in particular, is a bit of a spicy one considering that Joe Biden is currently embroiled in a “credible” accusation of sexual assault by a former Senate aide. Other than denying the allegation, he hasn’t said much about Tara Reade.
Using the phrase “economic intercourse” surely brings to mind the allegation of sexual assault back in 1993 that the liberal Media is desperately trying to bury.
But beyond the reference to coitus economicus (H/T @TennantRob), Biden now seems to be flip-flopping on the travel ban that he just flip-flopped on.
Back in January, Biden was adamant that President Trump’s restrictions on travel from China into the U.S. was a prime example of his “hysterical xenophobia” and was completely against it. Later, when the coronavirus spread and devastated New York in particular, Biden backtracked and said that he commended Trump on the travel ban. (That’s clearly not true.)
Now, he seems to be swinging right on back to travel bans are bad and his interminable refrain, “that’s not who we are.”
In an interview with CBS Miami on Monday, Biden said:
I would get much more engaged in the world, we can’t step back. If in fact, for example, we solve the problem in the United States of America and you don’t solve it in other parts of the world, do you know what’s going to happen? We’re going to have–you’re going to have travel bans, you’re going to not be able to do–have economic intercourse around the world. There’s a lot. Look, when America goes alone–when America is first, it’s America alone.

I’m sorry… what?
Does he mean trade?
If he meant trade, why didn’t he just say trade?
Besides, has he not seen the reports that China has been exporting defective medical equipment around the world?
“America First” sounds like a damned excellent policy these days.
Matt Viser, the national political reporter at The Washington Post, tweeted that the phrase “economic intercourse” was one that he had never heard before.
Joe Biden tells @CBSMiami that the United States needs to be more engaged in the world.
Otherwise, he argues, “You’re not going to be able to have economic intercrourse around the world.” (The phrase “economic intercourse” is one that I, for one, have never heard before)

The phrase raised the eyebrows of conservatives on Twitter who openly mocked Joe for it.

Looks like Biden's hoping to get some stimulus going ? https://t.co/IvII54T5YL

Joe Biden has still not directly addressed the sexual assault allegations against him but here he is talking about “economic intercourse”.

“You don’t understand, officer. This isn’t soliciting a prostitute, it’s just economic intercourse. Call Joe Biden, he can explain it better.” https://t.co/Uh9JGyDAES

Economic Intercourse = We're all screwed. He isn't wrong this time.

This is true. We’ve locked down for too long, and we’re all going to have to pay the price.
The price would have been even higher if anyone a Democrat had been in the White House because they were all quick to call Trump a racist for defying the WHO with his travel ban that has been lauded by medical experts as the correct course of action to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
We’ve got six more months of the liberal Media peddling a confused, unintelligible old man. He has been “credibly accused” of sexual assault and telling us that he is going to be the savior of America. At the same time, they memory-hole every gaffe that he makes.
