Joe Biden is now in the catbird seat to face off against Donald Trump.
The Democrat establishment got in line to prop up Biden in a crowded primary field.
But Biden told one massive lie that just ruined his candidacy.
The Democrat primary is beginning to wind down, and Joe Biden appears to be Donald Trump’s opponent in the general election.
After a dismal showing in the first three primary states, Biden rallied in South Carolina and other other so-called moderates in the race dropped out before Super Tuesday to give Biden the boost he needed over Bernie Sanders.
Prior to the obvious coordination by the DNC, Sanders, the career communist, had the inside lane to the nomination, which scared many members in the Democrat Party.
Sanders refuses to drop out of the race before the convention, which is bad news for Biden.
After a string of primary defeats, Sanders can’t win the nomination barring some black swan event, but he can bloody up Biden for Trump to knock down in the general election.
And so far, that’s what’s happening.
Biden is a weak candidate, weaker than Hillary Clinton in 2016, and Trump already defeated her.
Biden isn’t nearly as lucid, and he’s not nearly as good of a liar as Clinton.
And Sanders just caught Biden in a gigantic one.
During their most recent debate, Sanders challenged Biden on the issue of social security.
Sanders never met a big-government program he didn’t like, and wants to expand all of them, social security in particular.
Sanders called out Biden for advocating for cuts to social security and other entitlement programs.
Biden responded, “No, I did not talk about the need to cut any of those programs.”
But he did on more than one occasion.
After Biden’s stunning lie, Sanders urged the viewers of the debate to go on YouTube and find videos of Biden explicitly saying he would cut social security and other programs.
Sadly for Biden, the videos exist.
Biden in multiple instances called for cuts to social security and other entitlements in no uncertain terms.
This is a huge problem for Biden.
Either he’s blatantly lying, or he’s forgotten his former positions.
Neither scenario is good news for Biden because Trump will hammer him.
The Democratic establishment is trying to convince the American people that Biden’s cognitive function is perfectly fine, but anyone with two eyes can see that isn’t true.
Biden is slurring his words, forgetting which state he’s in, forgetting names, including Barack Obama, and challenging potential voters to fights and push-up contests.
Biden may present himself as the harmless uncle, but his record of dishonesty is quite stark at this point.
He plagiarized a speech, which ended his 1988 candidacy for president.
Biden claimed he was a top scholar in undergraduate studies and law school, and that was untrue.
And as Sanders pointed out, he’s lied about positions he’s taken.
The Democrats have bet big on Joe Biden, and it’s turning out to be a huge mistake.
