Joe Biden Slams Rush Limbaugh for Belittling People

Former Vice President Joe Biden took some ugly cheap shots at beloved talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh during a CNN town hall on Wednesday.

Former Vice President Joe Biden took some ugly cheap shots at beloved talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh during a CNN town hall on Wednesday.

Biden was upset because President Trump awarded America’s Anchorman with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Limbaugh recently announced he is suffering from lung cancer.

“Look, Rush Limbaugh will spend his entire time on the air dividing people, belittling people, talking about how — talking about blacks in ways, African Americans in ways that — anyway, I do feel badly, I mean this sincerely, that he’s suffering from a terminal illness,” Biden said. “So he has my empathy and sympathy no matter what his background is. But the idea that he … receives a medal that is of the highest honor that can be given to a civilian, I find, um, quite frankly, driven more by trying to maintain your right-wing political credentials than it is anything else.”

Biden went on to say Limbaugh does not understand “the American code of decency and honor.”

“I mean, if you read some of the things that Rush has said about people, their backgrounds, their ethnicity, how he speaks to them, I don’t think he speaks — I don’t think he understands the American code of decency and honor. I just really — but, look. This is Donald Trump,” Biden said.

CNN host Anderson Cooper did not push back on the lies spewing from Biden’s vulgar mouth — out of either ignorance or complicity.

But let’s be honest — the former vice president is not exactly the poster child for decency and honor.

Remember what he told a group of gays, lesbians, transgenders, and gender-fluid people in 2018? He called Trump supporters “virulent dregs of society.” “These forces of intolerance remain determined to undermine and roll back the progress you’ve made,” the vice president said. “This time they not you have an ally in the White House. This time they have an ally. They are 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, literal bully pulpit. callously exerting his power over those who have little power or none.”

So there you have it, folks. In truth, Rush Limbaugh is a good and decent man and a great patriot. He has raised tens of millions of dollars for charity.

Joe Biden, on the other hand, is a glad-handing politician with a foul mouth and a peculiar affinity for international gas companies.

I know Joe Biden — and he’s no Ditto Head.

So the next time you want to talk about decency and honor, Mr. Vice President, just hush up.
