On Wednesday, US President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden vouched for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton at the party’s national convention in Philadelphia. Both their speeches were mostly lauded by people on social media but Joe Biden’s comments on Donald Trump just won the Internet.
“He has no clue. Period,” said Biden of the Republican nominee.
This is what the Vice President said during the speech which people just can’t get over.
His lack of empathy and compassion can be summed up in a phrase that I suspect he’s most proud of having made famous, you’re fired. I mean really, I’m not joking. Think about that. Think about that. Think about everything you learned as a child, no matter where you were raised. How can there be pleasure in saying, you’re fired? He’s trying to tell us, he cares about the middle class, give me a break. That’s a bunch of malarkey.
Whatever he thinks, whatever he thinks and I mean this from the bottom of my heart. I know I’m called middle class Joe and in Washington, that’s not meant as a compliment. It means you’re not sophisticated. But I know why we’re strong. I know why we have held together. I know why, we are united. It’s because there’s always been a growing middle class. This guy doesn’t have a clue about the middle class, not a clue.

Not that Obama’s speech didn’t make the cut. His bear hug to Hillary Clinton after the speech calls for attention too.
