Bi-partisanship? Not from Joe Biden. He insulted at least half of the fire fighters in the United States by speaking the following words in a speech to the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF):
|It isn’t about — you’ve heard this trite phrase — Democrats and Republicans. Hell, some of you guys are still stupid enough to be Republicans.
Of course, we all know what the response would have been if a Republican had said the opposite. Old Media would have been all over it and it would have been the lead story for two weeks.
I don’t believe Biden’s excuse that it was a joke. It shows very clearly his haughty, arrogant, disrespectful attitude towards those who don’t think as he thinks.
