  1. “I’m Joe Biden, and I forgot this message!”
    -Joe Biden

    This should be called ” Establishment moves to create the illusion that Biden is a viable candidate.”

    • Phil Johnson | April 10, 2020 at 3:35 PM | Reply

      @Bobo This video will burst your bubble.

    • @Expat I honestly can’t wait to see Joe Biden in the debates.. I hope he actually makes it that far. It’ll be a nationally televised roast. Oh by the way Explain how Biden will get more voters than the ” Vote Blue No Matter Who” crew? He won’t win with policies or charm.. all he has is orange man bad. Weak sauce.

    • ray fish all he has to do is let “Orange man” talk. That is normally enough to make people look for someone else.

    • @Expat ya know they say insanity is defined as doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Now tell me what does Biden have over Hillary? What’s different other than that Trump actually has a list of accomplishments and a stronger following than he did the first time? because I have black and hispanic family members of mine that are now Trump supporters and they were not before. so…good luck with all that hopefulness but all you have are strong opinions. The facts are not on your side.

    • Viable compared to what? The actor who plays Bozo the Clown would be viable compared to the man in the office now.

  3. Who cut off the video and read comments?

    • @Nate moron trumpard 🖕

    • M P nope, Trump is just more capable than these pathetic blue candidates. Other than his verbal demeanor he is leagues ahead of them in doing whats best for our country.

    • @M P i guess you didn’t hear.. always voting blue no matter who is what got you Trump. Obviously a lot of people were not happy with the job blue was doing or the candidates they were providing.. kind of like now. Maybe when they stop blaming Trump and do a little self reflection they’ll finally get it.. here’s to hoping..

    • @ray fish Delusional

    • @M P yes you are right.. the democrats are delusional.. just like when they said Hillary would win by a landslide and Trump had no chance, or that Judge Kavanaugh was involved in gang rapes, or that Russians colluded with Trump to get him elected. Or that just because someone is running for President means you can not investigate any possible crime they committed. All proven false because the people that believed that.. were delusional.

      @Stannis Baratheon Funny you should mention echo chambers, because I don’t need a commentator to tell me Trump is a moron. There’s plenty of video of Trump proving his own ignorance. Commentators can’t even do justice to what anyone can see and hear for themselves. Show me videos of Obama making a fool of himself if you can. I can show you twenty times as many of Trump.

    • Stannis Baratheon | April 10, 2020 at 8:37 AM | Reply

      @Blink Once on Sunday! Okay cool story bro you’re not on reddit any more, nobody cares. Trump is stupid, we know. Biden is a stupid pedophile. And Sanders is a stupid commie, and Hillary was a stupid psychopath. I’ll take the one that’s just stupid.

    • Marisa Dalla Valle | April 10, 2020 at 9:38 AM | Reply

      @Blink Once on Sunday! Sorry if I sound stupid, but Sanders was winning at first, then Biden picked up speed. This is in part because of media coverage, by people who are often paid millions, have suggested that “socialism” just ain’t for us. There has been no objective debate on what is in reality “Democratic Socialism”, and how countries that use this system are doing. Ironically, we don’t hear about them because they’re doing okay and are not news. Anyway, again thank you for reminding me that my question was a dumb one, and how intelligent you are.

    • Blink Once on Sunday! | April 10, 2020 at 3:15 PM | Reply

      @Marisa Dalla Valle Biden picking up speed had nothing to do with Obama. By the time Obama raised his voice Sanders was already facing insurmountable odds. Very little chance of winning. The point is moot.

    • Marisa Dalla Valle | April 10, 2020 at 4:58 PM | Reply

      @Blink Once on Sunday!I agree that Obama had nothing to do with it (though a little bit because of their ties). All I’m saying is he congratulated Biden the evening he won against Sanders’ winning streak. Sanders was still in the race then. If Obama didn’t want to interfere he should have either complimented both of the democratic candidates for their wins, or neither until ONE was officially announced. That’s all I’m saying, he should have stayed out til the very end, after Bernie backed out, to compliment Biden.

  5. i don’t see much uniting, in fact i’m starting to feel like it’s fishy that Joe Biden’s supporters are so invisible.

    • @legowarrior Nah I think you are running because you are effectively being debunked.. roaches scatter from the light too.. so its understandable.

    • Lynette Scribner | April 15, 2020 at 6:10 PM | Reply

      @ray fish 😂

    • ray fish I can engage in conversation will people I don’t care the opinion of. I’m not sure where your rule was written, but am not obligated to obey it.

    • @Evolved Ape nope not rules.. just reality.. if you are reading and responding to my writing.. then you are showing interest.. and do care enough to respond. If you didn’t care you wouldn’t respond. Just the facts based on actions. Logic is not your strong point.

    • ray fish I don’t live by your rules, my man. I can not care what you think and also respond. Maybe I’m just a higher level than you?

    • Phantom Salom | April 10, 2020 at 9:01 PM | Reply

      Saltponds239 the difference between Biden and Trump is that Biden didn’t downplay the virus like Trump did. If you read Biden’s tweets, you can tell that he is passionate about fighting this virus and keeping the American people safe. Biden isn’t an expert, but he knows how to comfort the American people.

    • Saltponds239 | April 10, 2020 at 9:02 PM | Reply

      @Ted Negurski The old Socialist did pretty good for himself.

    • Saltponds239 | April 10, 2020 at 9:13 PM | Reply

      @Phantom Salom Biden knows how to comfort Americans? And how is that?

      When Swine Flu struck in 2009, It took Obama/Biden 6 Months and thousands of Americans died before they declared a National emergency.

      And less we forget, Pelosi was Speaker of the House – 3 Compassionate Politicians.

      Who downplayed the Wuhan virus? Here is a great video of Pelosi’s response to Trump closing travel from China in JANUARY – before a single American life was lost.

      @Ted Negurski Then they will call Trump supporters dummies. That’s twice Bernie threw them under the bus.

    Im Joe Biden and Im running for emperor of Canada.

  9. Everyone: Joe Biden! You’re the democratic nominee!
    Joe Biden: umm hey Jill, call Biden and tell him congratulations

  10. Breaking: Biden has just decided to drop out of the race to endorse Joe Biden.

      @Juan Anchundia Juan you are the great type of man I speak of. There are people who want to just live off of OUR backs and OUR labor. Not in my lifetime

    • Mike Thompson | April 13, 2020 at 8:04 AM | Reply

      @Marcos Juarez Not surprised you speak so lowly to your own people. Worst than that though, is you trying to make him your slave. Earn your own Marcos and quit betraying your neighbor

    • Mike Thompson | April 13, 2020 at 8:06 AM | Reply

      @Marcos Juarez It is obvious in this thread that you are a hate mongering racist. I have never met a non racist Demokkkrat for that matter

    • Marcos Juarez | April 13, 2020 at 8:45 AM | Reply

      @Mike Thompson I am nobody’s slave, okay? Do you get what you see? The Democratic Party is not hard-right nor extreme-right party. The Democratic Party is center to center-left party. It has been that way since John F. Kennedy was President and always will be because Joe Biden will carry JFK’s legacy just Bill Clinton and Barack Obama has. I am not betraying any neighbor. Can you see that Joe Biden is building a coalition between and the social liberals and the social democrats? Biden is not a racist. He never has and he will never be. Stop pretending who is racist and get real.

    • Mike Thompson | April 13, 2020 at 11:23 AM | Reply

      @Marcos Juarez This complete denial you are in is too obvious. Even when presented with all the facts, you still deny. Biden is a complete bigot and sides with Demokkkratic klansmen like Robert Byrd. The only legacy Obama built was one or hate and bigotry. President Donald J Trump has done 10x more than Obama ever did for minorities. I don’t like the hate the Demokkkrat party perpetuates for votes.

  11. Ok let’s be honest, Biden can’t even remember what he had for breakfast. Sanders had a chance, Trump is gonna win guaranteed. How dumb can the Democrats be?

    • Dirt Merchant | April 11, 2020 at 6:15 AM | Reply

      Ask yourself that question 😉

    • What has me scratching my head is out of all the people in the party, Biden is the best they could do? That’s the part of this I don’t get and concerns me about half our country…..

    • @OAK CLIFF I will see you crying in November.

    • Not dumb..try greedy. Sanders would have cost them a lot of money. They will NEVER allow a progressive to win the nomination, NEVER. It is useless for any progressive to use the dnc next time,cause it will happen again. I`ve seen republicans state that they did think of voting for Bernie instead of Trump. They will not vote for Biden. Progressives will have a chance IF starting their own party

    • Jazmin Romero | April 14, 2020 at 9:19 PM | Reply

      Sad but true ..I only want the best for this amazing country..trump is not the best option either..

  12. Absolutely 0% support for Biden in the comments. Unreal 😂

    • Llewellyn2844 | April 9, 2020 at 6:45 AM | Reply

      The DNC is deluding itself if they think a creepy, senile
      old coot has a chance against a strong incumbent.

    • Zahler I will support future President Joe Biden. Only a complete fool would want another 4 years of Trump.

    • Llewellyn2844 | April 10, 2020 at 6:24 AM | Reply

      Obviously, you don’t care that poor old Joe has gone senile (which
      is becoming more obvious every day), but do you think the voters
      are going to overlook that? Do you honestly believe a demented
      Biden can survive a debate with Trump?

  13. Biden literally could have not campaigned and the outcome would have been the same

    • @legowarrior Too be honest i have no idea how biden won the super tuesday states with campaigning.

    • @Blue Jay He wasn’t Bernie. Bernie has two marks against him. For a lot of people, he is too liberal. Too Radical. His ideas are just not ideas people liked.
      The second one is what cost him the minority vote. He isn’t a member of the Democratic Party. A lot of people think being a member of the Democratic Party is important. I’m not talking about insiders or elected officials. I’m talking about people that vote democrat every election for the D behind a person’s name. They have been members almost as long as they have gone to church. A lot of them felt Bernie snubbed them because he never joined. He had 4 years in which he could have been a Democratic Senator instead of a Senator that Caucuses with the Democrats, and he hadn’t. I think the term is Carpetbagger.

    • @legowarrior Either or this turn of events has just demoralized half of the dems and any independent that had some interest in the Democratic party. I can say without a doubt that sanders had a real following that was truely organic.

      I just cant say the same for biden i think these events will hurt the democratic party for a generation the mistrust between ppl and the dems is at its apex now even if biden wins thats not going anywhere.

      And bidens not gonna win so yea…the mistrust will be huge.

    • ​@Blue Jay Why do you think he won’t win? I mean, I agree, he doesn’t have the same rabid fan club that Sanders has, but in South Caroline, he won and won big. And that was before people start dropping out. There are people that are happy to vote Biden over anyone else.

      This election, more than any other, is one about Donald Trump. Is Donald Trump the person you want in office for 4 more years? If not, you are going to have to vote for Biden. And I don’t think that is going to be a difficult vote for most people. 4 years of Biden seems like a walk in the park.

    • The outcome AND the ‘excitement’ level. lol.

  14. Lol when Trump and Biden Go at it it’s going to be embarrassing to watch Biden forget what he’s debating about.

    • *Dementia Joe 2020:* “My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over, if you like what you see help out, if not, vote for the other Biden.”

  17. If you’re ever wondering why the US has a high amount of non-voters…

    • Tyler Street | April 9, 2020 at 2:28 PM | Reply

      They should just tell him he’s already won. Tell him all he has todo is brodcast a briefing once a day from his house and unplug the camera. Guarantee he would live out the next four years 100% convinced he is president and is actually talking to people.

  20. DNC continues to screw Sanders over and now he has to drop out.

    • Look at it this way Biden would be the most progressive president, and Donald Trump Is the 2nd most conservative I know its disapointing but there is more of a chance of change with Biden

    • Owen Rustici | April 14, 2020 at 2:52 PM | Reply

      @Socialism Sucks I’m a democrat but I have to agree with you maybe if it was a contested convention it would be different but they voted for Biden fair and square with nothing from the DNC.

    • Owen Rustici | April 14, 2020 at 3:08 PM | Reply

      @Socialism Sucks Trump might not debate with him.
