Joe Biden hasn’t officially entered the 2020 presidential race yet, but based on how things are going so far, if he decides to pull the trigger, he’s gonna have his work cut out for him:
"Mean pettiness has overtaken our politics," Joe Biden says.

That’s not going over well with a lot of lefties:

Oh boy. I like Biden, but Democrats aren’t mean, and Republicans are corrupt and/or spineless. Compromise with these crooks is dangerous.

You said something nice about a homophobe Joe. That's definitely not we are.

So Biden thinks these current Republicans are not protecting a Russian asset that uses the presidency to enrich himself??? Spoken like a true corporate Democrat.

"If you notice, I get criticized for saying anything nice about the party that is genociding kids at the border."

This is why Joe should retire. Or at least not be president.

And there’s plenty more where that came from. Poor Uncle Joe can’t seem to keep track of where he stands. Do today’s remarks mean he’s walking back his walkback after calling Mike Pence “a decent guy”?
Not mentioned: he apologized for saying those things. https://t.co/yyXgSx1JVG
— Dan McLaughlin (@baseballcrank) March 12, 2019
And yet he caved and apologized for it.
— JJ (@blessinginchaos) March 12, 2019
So why did he apologize
— Terri Lynn (@TerriLy75642135) March 12, 2019
So, why'd you apologise, Joe?
— Sophiestications (@Sophiesticatio2) March 12, 2019
Then why did he apologize to @CynthiaNixon ?????? ??♀️
— Mz. J. (@jaybluuee) March 12, 2019
??♀️… so is Mike Pence a “decent guy” again? https://t.co/1SDnYLgff7

Really, @JoeBiden? It's not who we are?
Because you called @VP a decent guy just a couple weeks ago. Then you got criticized for it. THEN YOU TOOK IT BACK!!!
So while it might not be who WE are as a country, it certainly is who YOU and the people you cater to are.

Biden certainly seems to have forgotten his own role in bringing about the climate of “mean pettiness” in politics:
FYI, same person who said Mitt Romney would but "ya'll back in chains".
Wonder where the division came from @JoeBiden ?
— that guy matt (@ShoeInTheBox) March 12, 2019
All due respect but this is the same man that said he wanted to take Trump "out behind the shed" and beat him up.
He isn't innocent here.

What a joke! He is a career politician who pushed this pettiness.

Stuff it, Joe
