Former Vice President Joe Biden this week told a construction worker in Detroit, Michigan, that he was full of shit and threatened to slap him.
Incredibly, the interaction has won the Democratic candidate high praise from the same people who have screamed practically nonstop since 2015 about President Trumps lack of honor, dignity, and character.
Kind of amazing that anybody thinks this ... makes Biden look anything other than terrific, said the Atlantics David Frum of the former vice presidents outburst. He shushes the aide who wants to lead him away and then engages a hostile critic face to face, fact to fact. Impressive.
Biden blew up on the worker Tuesday morning during a tour of an under-construction auto plant.
You're full of shit! the former vice president yelled, sticking his finger in the face of the worker who accused him of trying to end our Second Amendment right.
The man said of the former vice presidents anti-gun platform, "This is not OK, all right?"
"Don't tell me that, pal, said Biden, or I'm going to go out and slap you in the face."
You're working for me, man! said the worker.
"I'm not working for you," the 2020 Democratic primary candidate shot back. "Don't be such a horse's ass.
After the interaction went viral, Frum, who has had many, many thoughts in the Trump era on decency, character, dignity, honor, and norms, cheered the former vice president, calling his performance impressive.
For the record: Biden said AR-15s are illegal (they are not). He claimed AR-15 semi-automatic rifles, which he referred to at one point as AR-14s, are machine guns (they are not). Biden also deployed the discredited fire in a theater argument for gun control during his argument with the construction worker.

Yes. Yes. Yes.
The hypocrisy needs to be pointed out again and again.
TDS is more contagious & deadly than the flu and coronavirus combined. The Left would rather have Joementia than peace & prosperity, only because Orange Man Bad.
These same imbeciles will go on and on about how “uncivil” Donald Trump is because he fights back when attacked. Can you imagine Donald Trump telling a voter that he’s “full of sh*t” and implying they should step outside for a fight? The answer is no, because president Trump is not a pathetic drooling senile old coot.
Joe Biden was a complete prick long before he began to suffer from dementia. The combination is not a pleasing one. Folks, this is the best the Democrat party has to offer.
Of all the vile never Trump “Republicans”, David Frum is the worst.
Talk about someone I’s like to “slap”.
Did Biden have any facts? I think he had insults and threats. Nothing more.
Let’s not make Biden look too bad. The alternative is Bolshevik Bernie.
A Republican calls a pompous MSM reporter “fake news” and there is an outcry about civility.
Biden insults an ordinary citizen to his face, and the entire MSM gets a collective woodie.
Thing is...if President Trump said the same thing to the same person, there’d be calls for his head on a platter.
The fact that Biden did this and people are applauding him...I think those people would have loved to slap the auto worker.
This is what we’re up against.
Compare how Ted Cruz dealt with the farmer in Iowa who was angry with him in 2016.
And “machine guns” are not illegal.
Sleepy Joe travels with four well-armed security men...
Since the guy who questioned Biden is likely a Trump supporter, anything goes.
Don’t forget ‘Joe the Plumber(???)’ who ‘dared’ confront BO ‘face to face’.
They(WE) knew more about him in one news cycle than they were able to dig up (well bare) on BO in his 51 or so years.
And referring to the you’re full of s**t response, one stuuuuupid CNN anchor said some would call that charming. CHARMING! Vulgarity is charming to some Dems.
So fed up with Big Media.......the whole lot just a** kissers to their Masters in the Dem Party.
No substitute for hypocrisy.
LMAO! Or, perhaps I shouldn’t!
