Joe Biden just destroyed one of Trump's biggest attack lines

Joe Biden on Saturday utterly devastated one of President Donald Trump's most repeated attack lines against the former Vice President. And the irony is Fox News helped him do it.

On the day that Trump was at his ritzy, exclusive country club in Bedminster, New Jersey, that reportedly has a $350,000 admission fee, Biden did what so many typical Americans do for recreation: He rode a bike

The former vice president, who was wearing a mask, was accompanied on his bicycle ride by a few others on the streets of his home state of Delaware when they were approached by Fox News' Peter Doocy. The Fox reporter yelled at the bike-riding Biden: "Mr. Vice President have you picked a running mate yet?" to which Biden responded, "Yeah I have." Doocy then followed up, "You have? Who is it?" to which Biden jokingly replied, "You!"

That exchange not only aired on Fox News, it went viral on social media. And then almost on cue Saturday afternoon, around the same time Biden was on his bicycle, Trump tweeted out from the posh confines of his country club one of his go-to attack lines against the former VP, calling him "Sleepy Joe Biden."

The irony was delicious. There's Biden briskly riding a bicycle while Trump is at his private country club, where the only exercise he seems to get is getting in and out of his golf cart. Yet Trump is calling Biden "Sleepy." Sometimes comedy writes itself. But in this case Twitter helped as the hashtag "Trump Can't ride a Bike" got traction online, with one anti-Trumper juxtaposing video footage of Biden riding his bicycle with Trump struggling to walk down a ramp after delivering the commencement address in June at West Point.

6. It's kind of astonishing how cheap the finishes are when you really look.

Have you ever gotten a good look at the "omelet bar" at Mar-A-Lago? Probably not. But let me assure you that plywood and glued on, off the shelf moulding is not expensive. If I were paying hundreds of thousands of dollars for membership, I'd wonder where my money was going, because it's not going to the furniture or the finishes.

9. Exactly! It's not even maintained.

Broken fixtures, chipped concrete, rust damage, it's crazy. They don't even bother to scrub the mold and mildew off the chair cushions by the pool. Who would sit there!?! Eww.

14. Idiots would give their life savings to sniff his farts in a broken-down outhouse.

Even knowing full well that it's all going into his pockets after Vladimir takes his cut.
"To pwn the libz," or something.

20. I'd like to think that Joe's on the glide path to the White House, but...


I'm sure there is all manner of Republican/Russian fuckery going on to cheat him and install Trump for a second term.

The numbers for Biden have to be so overwhelming that they far outweigh the inevitable dirty tricks that will be deployed.

and some Democrats may be tempted to sit it out knowing Trumps going down or fearing Covid.

I wonder what the rest of the rooms looks like.
