Joe Biden to Trump: ‘Grow up, Donald. Time to be an adult. You’re president’
Joe Biden remains the coolest vice president ever. Obviously done giving fucks about niceties and happy to let the bridges he burns light his way to a nice life of cancer research, Biden offered some sage advice to President-elect Donald Trump Thursday during a PBS NewsHour interview with Judy Woodruff.
When asked how Democrats will deal with the “new reality” of Trump, such as his insulting tweets in which he called Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer “head clown,” Biden had this to say to America’s President-elect: “Grow up, Donald. Grow up. Time to be an adult. You’re president. You’ve got to do something. Show us what you have.”
“You’re going to propose legislation. We’re going to get to debate it. Let the public decide, let them vote in Congress. Let’s see what happens. It’s going to be much clearer what he’s for and against and what we’re for and against now that it’s going to get down to actually discussing in detail these issues that affect people’s lives.”
It’s true that Trump has donned many pairs of flip-flops post-Election Day, from torture to that ridiculous wall. Once upon a time Trump even supported Planned Parenthood, but now that he’s got to keep Vice President-elect Mike Pence, his anti-choice voters, and a Republican Congress happy, he’s all for Paul Ryan’s vow to defund the reproductive health non-profit. When it comes to women’s rights, no matter how many smooches he may sneak from senator’s wives, Biden is still the guy who appeared on Law & Order SVU, worked to pass a federal bill of rights for survivors of sexual assault, and penned a letter of support to Brock Turner’s victim.
Meanwhile, news broke Thursday that Trump apparently told Tucker Carlson: “I get more pussy than you do.”
