Biden camp blasts 'baseless lies' about his health

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign accused Fox News personalities of spreading rumors about the presidential hopeful being in poor health, The Daily Beast reports.

Fox News host Sean Hannity and Fox Business host Lisa "Kennedy" Montgomery have discussed Biden’s health on the air multiple times.

“If you talk to Democrats, who are working for different campaigns — it’s people having a few drinks at a bar and (Democrats) whispering, ‘You know there is something wrong with the former vice president,’” she said.

In a statement to The Daily Beast, Biden campaign press secretary TJ Ducklo said, “These are baseless lies meant to stoke fear in their viewers. It has no place in our public discourse, and anyone amplifying it bears some responsibility for giving it legitimacy it most certainly does not deserve.”

2. Fox News will do everyting possible to keep the focus on Biden's age

 

and we should do everything possible to keep the focus on the fact that Trump is a dangerously sick fuck with the mental capacity of a 6-yr old spoiled brat-child who shouldn't be playing with nuclear capabilities.

5. Fox News is going WAY beyond age here!

 

Their guy is old too.

They are lying about all sorts of nasty crap that I am not going to repeat here about Joe's health specifically, just like they tried to pull on Hillary.

3. This is one of the right/Fox/nazi's greatest hits for attacking democrats

 

It's a message aimed at simpletons who need to be fed a daily diet of garbage to make it through the day. I wouldn't dignify them with a response, as the Biden camp did. It just draws more visibility to the cesspool they live in.

4. You can't repeat this crap on every candidate, FOX NEWS

 

First of all, I worked for Clinton Kaine nationally in 2016. Second of all, this healthcare smear is a repeat of what they did to Hillary.

And FINALLY, you have to remember that Fox News is owned by Rupert Murdoch, who is one of the biggest donors to the RNC and has been for decades.

Does anyone believe what FOX NEWS says? Nobody of value and the ones who do have an IQ of about 7 and wouldn't acknowledge verifiable facts if it smacked them in the face.

HERE IS A VALUABLE TIP: If you want to help us win the presidency back in 2020, then don't repost all of this kind of crap all over the Internet. It gives it legs and validity and all you are doing is helping Trump. They count on DEMS being so angry about what they say that they will post and repost it EVERYWHERE.

Use your power wisely. Learn how to get somewhere and not damage us.

7. Wrong attitude...

 

You laugh it off or make a joke about Trump's rotundness (and bad clothing fit), or better still challenge him to a joggng race. Don't attack Fox News.

9. Why not?

 

It would be an incredibly smart move for Biden to do a Fox Town Hall in case he ends up being our nominee in the general election.

Isn't the whole idea that a Biden Campaign can bring back some people that voted for trump? A lot of disenchanted people in the Rust Belt watch Fox News.

All our primary candidates should do it for the same reason.

11. Hillary had 2 or 3 lookalikes

 

The right wing had a conspiracy theory that Hillary was so sick and would die right after the election that she had three women that looked like her pretending to be her because Hillary was not able to campaign every day. It was crazy.

14. Biden should 'release' a medical report, almost word for word like the one for Trump.

18. Russia, trump and Fox are busy again using a tried and true tactic

 

Fox, Trump. JPR and Russia used this line of attack on Clinton last cycle and so it is time to use it again this cycle. I remember reading on JPR that Clinton had actually died and it was body double on TV. Biden is far more health compared to trump.
