Trump: I'd rather run against Biden


BY ZACK BUDRYK - 06/23/19 09:00 AM EDT

President Trump told NBC’s “Meet the Press” in an interview broadcast Sunday that he would prefer to run against former Vice President Joe Biden in 2020.

Trump told host Chuck Todd that he would rather run against Biden than run against Hillary Clinton, who remains a frequent target of Trump even after he defeated her in the 2016 election.

“I actually think that Hillary Clinton was a great candidate. She was very smart. She was very tough. She was ruthless and vicious,” Trump said. “[Biden’s] sleepy. She was not sleepy.”

Trump has made similar remarks about Biden, who has consistently led the crowded Democratic field, before.

12. Just so you know, it was a briar patch.

 

there is a Tar Baby in the story, which is why you got a bit confused. Here is an exerpt:

“Skin me, Brer Fox, snatch out my eyeballs, tear out my ears by the roots, and cut off my legs,” said Brer Rabbit. “Only please, Brer Fox, please don’t throw me into the briar patch.”

“It’s not going to be much fun skinning you,” said Brer Fox, “you’re not scared of that. But you are scared of the briar patch.”

And with that, Brer Fox yanked Brer Rabbit off the Tar-Baby, and he flung him -KERPLUNK!- right into the briar patch.

Well, there was a flutter where Brer Rabbit landed, then “Ooo! Oow! Ouch!” he screeched and he squalled. Then after a while, there was only a weak whisper from Brer Rabbit. Brer Fox listened.

“I got him! Brer Rabbit is dead!” said Brer Fox.

But then he heard a scuffling away at the other end of the briar patch. And low and behold, who does Brer Fox see scrambling out but Brer Rabbit himself, playing a briar bush whistle.

“Born and bred in the briar patch, that’s me,” laughed Brer Rabbit. “I told you not to throw me there. In all the world, that’s the place I love best!”

With a lippity clip, he hopped away.

13. Guess that just shows how old I am and how long it's been since my children were little.

 

Sorry about that and of course you are 100% right.

4. Trump speaks in code. ......

 

What Trump is really saying, he does not want to have to face Biden. He is totally ignorant of his debate prowess of the issues. How Joe's slickness destroyed Sarah Palin and Paul Ryan with that smile, subtle laugh, aND "Malarkey" comment.

Joe will do that with Trump, who does not tolerate being told "No" or being laughed at to his face.

I also think Kamala Harris would disarm Trump with her prosecutorial style with..."I have never heard anything so asinine in my life, folks, have you?" The look on Trump's face would be priceless. For Trump does not tolerate being contradicted. They know where his Achilles heel is.

9. Trump's obviously unable to beat Biden OR Clinton on command of the issues. But...

Trump's advantage one-on-one against either of them is that he is a natural entertainer.

10. We thought we knew where his achilles heel was in 2016. We didn't.

 

I don't think what worked against Palin and Ryan will work against Trump.

5. He probably already had made up his mind

 

He won't run , and if he did Pence would be gone , and he'd get a family member into the VP slot, but i think it all a act , and he will raise money to pay some of his huge debts with, and then run away from the prosecution from all the corruption he and his family are involved in. I also would not be surprised if the gop are looking at someone else already to replace him. for the 2020 election.

7. I think there is actually some truth to what Trump said here.

 

I do think HRC is smarter than Biden. And probably does have more "killer instinct" as well (or tough/ruthless as he put it)... part of Biden's appeal, after all, is his amiability.

8. Ignore what Trump says about this. It's neither true or false.

 

It's meaningless, meant to confuse you.
