Kirsters Baish| We’ve all heard the whispers that former Vice President Joe Biden may be considering a run in the upcoming 2020 presidential election. He recently gave a speech at the Human Rights Campaign’s annual dinner. The speech could have been a part of his attempt at promoting himself, but he made a huge mistake in attacking President Trump and his many supporters, just as failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton did in the past when she called us the “Deplorables.”
Biden said in reference to the LGBTQ community, “These forces of intolerance remain determined to undermine and roll back the progress you all have made. This time, they, not you, have an ally in the White House.”
He went on, “They’re a small percentage of the American people, virulent people, some of them the dregs of society. And instead of using the full might of the executive branch to secure justice, dignity, safety for all, the president uses the White House as a literal, a literal, bully pulpit.”
Take a look:
Biden is an old fool that has lost his mind. 60m Americans voted for Trump in 2016, not a small minority as he claims. I’m a very successful entrepreneur so wtf is his problem calling us dregs of society.

The disgusting comment made by Biden, claiming that the President and his “dregs of society” supporters have something against the LGBTQ community, goes against everything the President said during a speech at the Republican National Committee Convention back in 2016. Take a look at what the President had to say about PROTECTING the LGBTQ community:
Trump said, “Only weeks ago, in Orlando, Florida, 49 wonderful Americans were savagely murdered by an Islamic terrorist. This time the terrorist’s target: LGBTQ community. No good. And we’re gonna stop it.” The crowd went wild with applause. He went on to say, “As your president, I will do everything in my power to protect our LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful, foreign ideology. Believe me.”
Trump continued, “And I have to say, as a Republican, it is so nice to hear you cheering for what I just said. Thank you.” Again, the crowd cheered.
Liberals don’t seem to care about the facts when making arguments, however.
Didn’t Biden learn anything from Hillary Clinton’s “Deplorables” comment? She lost the election after alienating more than half of America.
Remember this when you vote in NOV. Hillary and her party don’t care about you. It’s all talk to action. VOTE GOP. By the way listen to her say we are all bunch of deplorables.

Trump trolled Hillary Clinton over the “Deplorables” comment.

Who are these “dregs” of society that Biden is referring to exactly? All we can deduce is that these “dregs” are people who don’t agree with him or the Democratic agenda. Since when did the working class become dregs of society? The working class is what makes America great. They are the people who pay taxes and keep our country moving forward. These are the people who are looking for lower taxes and small government. I guess this makes us the deplorable dregs of society.
