Trump Is “Dumb,” “Shameful,” and “Dangerous.”

Don’t take my word for it.  Take it from Joe Biden via The Guardian.

Joe Biden has attacked Donald Trump’s comments on the US pulling out of the Nato military alliance as “dumb”, “shameful” and “dangerous” in a blistering speech attacking Republican opposition to legislation partly aimed at providing support for Ukraine in its stand against a Russian invasion.

Trump’s remarks about encouraging Russia to attack Nato allies who did not contribute what Trump called their fair share of Nato funding have set off alarm bells across Europe among leaders who eye the prospect of a second Trump presidency with growing disquiet.

In a speech after the foreign aid bill – which also includes aid to Israel and Taiwan – passed the Senate, Biden urged reluctant Republicans to pass the legislation in the Republican-controlled House.

“Supporting this bill is standing up to Putin,” Biden said. “Opposing it is playing into Putin’s hands.”

Biden then attacked Trump for his encouraging of Republicans in the House to refuse to support the bill and for his comments about Russia and Nato.

“Can you imagine a former president of the United States saying that? The whole world heard it,” he said. “The worst thing is, he means it. No other president in our history has ever bowed down to a Russian dictator. Let me say this as clearly as I can: I never will.

“For God’s sake it’s dumb, it’s shameful, it’s dangerous. It’s un-American. When America gives its word it means something, so when we make a commitment, we keep it. And Nato is a sacred commitment.”

The right-wingers keep on talking like Joe Biden is Uncle Fluffy.  Yeah, that’s a distraction from the fact that their guy is an indicted predator staring down the barrel of 91 felony counts.  The truth is that Trump is all that Biden says and more.
