Newly resurfaced video shows Joe Biden calling servicemembers “stupid bastards” pic.twitter.com/yOrz5Ak7bY— Breaking911 (@Breaking911) September 25, 2020
Joe and Jill Biden spoke to the 380th Air Expeditionary Wing in Southeast Asia on March 7, 2016.
“I have incredibly good judgment,” Biden says in his remarks to the men and women service members. “One, I married Jill, and two, I appointed Johnson to the academy. I just want you to know that. Clap for that, you stupid bastards," he adds, in a seemingly sarcastic tone. Biden then appeared to say that the soldiers “must be slow” and called them "a dull bunch."
A video of the speech posted in January of 2017 on YouTube is accompanied by the caption “Vice President Joe Biden, recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom calls A room full of servicemen and servicewomen at an undisclosed location in southwest Asia stupid bastards in March 2016. A real class act.”
Yes, this is the same Joe Biden who lambasted President Trump and ran campaign ads against him for allegedly defaming members of the military even though the allegations came from anonymous sources -- sources that have never come forward -- and even though the accusations against Trump were refuted by 21 on-the-record sources. To recap: The charges against President Trump were never substantiated and have been refuted by 21 different people. There is no audio or video of President Trump ever saying such things.
