Trump Uses Bernie Sanders Campaign Ad To Prove That Biden Is A Liar
President Trump got a bit of help from an unusual source to prove that Joe Biden is a liar who claimed that he would not cut Social Security at Thursday’s debate.
During a stop on his barnstorming tour through key battleground states, Trump used an ad from socialist Bernie Sanders that dropped the hammer on lunchbucket Joe and his aversion to telling the truth.
At a rally in Pensacola, Florida on Friday, the Trump campaign played the ad that was being run by Comrade Bernie before he was ambushed by the DNC in South Carolina and played for a fool by his fellow candidates who stayed in the race just long enough to siphon off his support before dropping out and endorsing Biden.
The setup for Trump’s big surprise came when he accused his opponent of wanting to cut Social Security and other benefits when he was in the Senate to which Biden replied:
“He’s a very confused guy,” Biden said in response to the claim at the debate. “He thinks he’s running against somebody else. He’s running against Joe Biden. I beat all those other people because I disagreed with them. Joe Biden, he’s running against. And the idea that we’re in a situation that we’re gonna destroy Medicare–this is the guy that the actuary of Medicare said if in fact–and–and Social Security–if in fact, he continues to withhold–his plan to withhold the tax on Social Security, Social Security will be bankrupt in–by 2023. With no way to make up for it. This is the guy who’s tried to cut Medicare. So, I don’t–I mean the idea that Donald Trump is lecturing me on Social Security and Medicare, come on.”
But just as he has with the Charlottesville very fine people “on both sides” hoax, Biden is once again lying his ass off, and thanks to Bernie, it’s all right there for people to see.
The Trump campaign tweeted out the ad as it played for those in attendance at the rally in order to boost the signal.
Via Newsweek, “Trump Thanks Sanders After Showing Rally Clip of Democrat Accusing Biden of Cutting Social Security”:
President Donald Trump presented a video package during Friday night’s campaign event in Pensacola, Florida which purported to prove that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden had attempted to cut Social Security.
Trump and Biden have battled over the safety of Social Security funds during their presidential campaigns. Biden has claimed that Trump would bleed Social Security coffers dry within three years. Trump has said that Biden attempted to cut both Medicare and Social Security during his decades in the Senate.
“Joe Biden spent his entire time in the Senate—long, long days, hours, nights—working to cut your Social Security,” Trump said during Friday’s rally. “You don’t know about that. To cut your Medicare. People don’t know about that. He denies it. He denied it last night.”
Trump then introduced the video which featured footage from a March Democratic Presidential debate between Biden and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
Sanders asked Biden if he had been on the Senate floor “talking about the necessity—with pride—talking about the necessity of cutting Social Security, cutting Medicare, cutting veterans’ programs.”
“No,” Biden said. “When I argued that we should freeze federal spending, I meant social security as well. I meant Medicare and Medicaid. I meant veterans’ benefits. I meant every single solitary thing in that government.”
Trump thanked Crazy Bernie:
“Thank you, Bernie. I appreciate it, Bernie. Thank you very much. Bernie Sanders, everybody. The great Bernie Sanders.”
Democrats have been able to get away with lying about pretty much everything due to the failure of the domestic mainstream media but the truth always has ways of getting out.
According to reports, Sanders has his eye on the cabinet position of Biden’s labor secretary if good old Joe “wins” the election but the video may have just shattered that dream.
