WATCH: Biden Calls U.S. Troops ‘Stupid Bastards’

This is what the depraved Joe Biden thinks of our brave troops. But the enemy press will naturally provide cover for Biden, while they slander President Trump (who is the most supportive POTUS of the military in our lifetime) as anti-military. It’s a disgrace.

WATCH: Biden Jokingly Calls U.S. Troops ‘Stupid Bastards’, ‘Dull Bunch’ in 2016

By Breitbart, September 25, 2020

Former Vice President Joe Biden jokingly referred to members of the U.S. military and its overseas coalition partners as “stupid bastards” while making banter with troops during a 2016 trip to the United Arab Emirates.

Biden, who was in his final year in office, traveled to the Middle East in March 2016 as part of an effort to shore up the Obama administration’s position in the region. During the trip Biden delivered an address to members of the 380th Air Expeditionary Wing stationed at the Al-Dhafra Air Base near Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates.

As part of the visit, Biden was introduced by 1st Lt. Karen Johnson of the 380th’s Expeditionary Aircraft Maintenance Squadron. Given that Lt. Johnson was a native of Delaware and had secured her appointment to the U.S. Air Force Academy through Biden’s former Senate office, the vice president tried to use that history as a means to break the ice with the more than 1,000 service members present.

“Notwithstanding what you may hear about me, I have incredibly good judgment,” Biden said. “One, I married Jill and two, I appointed Johnson to the academy.”

“I just want you to know that, so clap for that you stupid bastards,” Biden added to laughter from the crowd. “Man, you all are a dull bunch. It must be slow here, man.”

Later in the speech, Biden praised the armed service members as the “finest generation of warriors the world has ever, ever known.”

At the time, Biden’s jokes received little attention. The only portion of the address that made national headlines, in fact, was a vow that Biden made to the troops, promising that the U.S. military would “squeeze the heart” out of then-burgeoning Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

When videos of Biden’s jokes first reappeared on Friday, a number of individuals took to social media to castigate the former vice president, arguing his attempt at banter was inappropriate.
