Well, creep Joe has thrown his hat into the already bloated democrat race for presidential candidate.
The move is welcomed by most conservatives who see Joe Biden as an intellectually challenged groper, whose main priority in life seems getting near little girls to smell their hair.
However, the main news is that a Politico poll shows Biden beating Trump and taking an immediate lead over rivals, all without the endorsement of Barack Obama. (Yeah, right… didn’t these people also predict a win by Hillary?) Biden also launched his campaign with a lie.
The Free Beacon reported:
Former Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday he had asked former President Barack Obama “not” to endorse him as he formally entered the 2020 race for the White House.
“I asked President Obama not to endorse,” he told reporters in Delaware. “And he doesn’t want to—whoever wins this nomination should win it on their own merits.”
Kate Bedingfield, a spokeswoman for Biden, had said earlier the former vice president had asked Obama “not” to endorse him in his 2020 bid, so he could make the case for change himself.
Biden officially entered the fray on Thursday, posing his candidacy as a battle with President Donald Trump for America’s soul. An Obama spokesman released an expression of support for Biden, as the two are close friends, but it was widely viewed as unlikely he would endorse, given the early stages of the primary and the crowded field.
“The vice president actually asked the president not to endorse,” she said on MSNBC. “He wanted to make the case. He is running in this race because he believes we need to restore the soul of this nation. We need to rebuild the backbone of America and that we need to unify and come together. Voters know Joe Biden.”
MSNBC host Hallie Jackson asked her to explain why Biden would ask that, saying that seemed counterintuitive.
“He wants to make his own case,” she reiterated.
Biden used the Charlottesville lie to promote his campaign for America’s ‘soul.’
The candidate featured lengthy footage of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, calling it a “defining moment” in the country’s history.
“It was there on August of 2017 we saw Klansman, and white supremacists and neo-Nazis come out in the open, their crazed faces illuminated by torches, veins bulging, and baring the fangs of racism,” Biden said.
He praised the “courageous Americans” who clashed with the group of protestors creating violence in the city.
“That’s when we heard the president of the United States that stunned the world and shocked the conscience of this nation,” Biden said, repeating the hoax that the president called neo-Nazis “very fine people.”
That’s a lie. Bold faced, disgusting and ridiculous lie.
And the ‘courageous Americans’ he’s talking about are fascists. They force their political will on others through violence.
There is plenty of proof about Antifa’s sickening, storm trooper tactics.
Biden’s campaign advisers discussed launching his campaign in Charlottesville, but some activists and residents in the city expressed concerns about using the tragedy as a campaign backdrop. Advisers indicated that Biden will kick off his campaign with a political rally on Monday at a union hall in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Biden ran for president unsuccessfully in the 1988 and 2008 elections before Obama selected him as his running mate. Although he considered running in 2016 to challenge Hillary Clinton he ultimately decided against it.
President Trump did not mention Biden’s launch video but revisited the nickname of “Sleepy Joe” on Twitter.
Welcome to the race Sleepy Joe. I only hope you have the intelligence, long in doubt, to wage a successful primary campaign. It will be nasty – you will be dealing with people who truly have some very sick & demented ideas. But if you make it, I will see you at the Starting Gate!

Then of course, there’s Biden’s creepy stroking and touching habits, which he claims were just the way he shows friendliness.
“I’ve always tried to make a human connection,” he explained in response, before adding, “I will be more respectful of people’s personal space” in the future.
Campus Reform took a montage of Biden’s grabby acts to a university to see what students thought about it.
They were stunned.
“That’s definitely excessive, there’s no reason to be grabbing at people like that,” one student said, while another cringed, before adding, “he’s very close to them… oh my gosh.”
Another student added, “everyone else, you can tell they’re uncomfortable with the way he acts.”
He’s a weirdo and he’s not too bright… but this is the savior of the democrat party?
Bring it on, Joe.
