He’s even more senile than previously believed.
PHILADELPHIA — Vice President Joe Biden, making a brief visit on Tuesday to the floor of the Democratic National Convention, put his best spin on the divisions on display, going so far to argue there isn’t “any fracture in the party.”
“I do not think there’s any fracture in the party,” Biden told a gaggle of reporters, who asked him about the protests from supporters of Bernie Sanders. “I wish we could put something on every Sanders delegate walking into a booth. If we were able to find out, I’d bet you everything I have that hardly anyone is going to pull the lever for Trump. Come on man. You kidding me?”
Biden’s comments come as Sanders supporters have booed the mention of Hillary Clinton’s name during speeches and DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has resigned over emails indicating the national party favored Clinton over Sanders.
The vice president suggested that Sanders supporters just want to blow off some steam before ultimately getting behind Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee. “The senator’s delegates worked their tail off. And they’re here in large numbers. Give ‘em a chance, man. Give ’em a chance. I promise you they’re going to be fine.”
“You know they’re going to show up,” Biden said when asked if he thinks Sanders supporters will go to the polls.
