Many Democrats are looking for an alternative to Hillary Clinton in 2016. Some have their hopes held high on Elizabeth Warren. Those who believe Elizabeth Warren does not yet have the political chops figured that just maybe Joe Biden may be the answer. After-all, vice-presidential candidates usually have the edge.
Jon Stewart shows a compelling reason why a Joe Biden vice-presidential candidacy is likely a pipe dream. Everyone knows Joe Biden’s heart. The problems are the words that leave his mouth at the most inopportune times.
Jon Stewart lays out the case against Joe Biden
Jon Stewart played a few clips that laid out the good and the bad. First he showed Jon Stewart unequivocally defending women against domestic abuse. “It’s never, never, never, the woman’s fault. This whole culture for so long has put the onus on the woman. What were you wearing? What did you say. What did you do to provoke. That is never the appropriate question.”
Jon Stewart then shows Joe Biden using the term ‘shylocks who took advantage’ as spoke about bankers that took advantage of mortgage owners in a recent speech. Joe Biden would later say it was a poor choice of words.
Jon Stewart later showed Joe Biden using the no longer politically correct word in his phrase ‘wisest man in the Orient’ as he described someone in Singapore. Stewart suggested he stick with Asia.
Jon Stewart in effect implies Joe Biden is stuck in the terminologies of the past. “Orient, Shylock, ” Jon Stewart said. “It’s like Biden has not been out of the house since 1962.”
