As is often the case, former Vice President Joe Biden’s mouth has stirred up controversy, It’s still a little unclear based upon his words who exactly he was targeting, but at least some portion of Trump supporters are the “dregs of society” in his eyes.
Maybe he meant a few such as white supremacists. Maybe he meant anyone who voted for and supports the President. This is Joe being Joe which means he’s not really sure what he’s saying and neither are we. Here’s the quote:
“There are a small percentage of the American people – virulent people – some of them the dregs of society – and instead of using the full might of the executive branch to secure justice, dignity, safety for all, the president uses the White House as a literal bully pulpit, callously exerting his power over those who have little or none,” Biden said.
Biden began the attack by warning attendees to beware the “forces of intolerance.”
