'That loser': Biden steps up personal insults of Trump

Source: NBC News

May 14, 2024, 10:46 PM EDT

President Joe Biden dialed up his personal insults of Donald Trump on Tuesday, calling the presumptive Republican nominee a "loser" while making fun of his handling of the Covid pandemic. Biden got his jabs in during remarks at an annual awards gala in Washington for the Asian Pacific American Institute for Congressional Studies.

“That other guy, that loser. I think he’s having trouble," Biden said, without referring to Trump by name. The insult was met with laughter in the ballroom for an event honoring Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Heritage Month.

Biden also knocked Trump on his handling of the Covid pandemic when he was in office four years ago. "Look, I’ll never forget him lying about the pandemic, telling Americans to inject bleach into their skin," Biden said Tuesday. "I wonder if he did it. It might explain something." In 2020, Trump publicly mused about whether disinfectant could be effective in clearing the body of Covid by "injection."

Multiple aides and advisers recently told NBC News that Biden’s increasing broadsides against Trump, targeting topics from his financial woes to his weight, have been part of a strategy steered by Biden himself.

He talks exactly like someone who grew up in PA coal country, blunt with the occassional swear word thrown in. I love it. I can see him sitting at diner having breakfast with his contemporaries chewing the fat and telling it like it is.

Better sleep has sharpened Joe's aim. This is how to take on a bully, back them in a corner with the truth and don't let them out.

He went after Biden's handling of the Covid pandemic and how millions of lives were lost because he didn't
know what to do or something along those lines. FQX must be betting their viewers have short memories,
that or they're helping them have short memories.

Many of their viewers didn't survive the COVID super-spreader events they encouraged and attended.

the rest of the campaign. It does bother me some though that he’s pivoting to Trump’s game.

In a perfect world, the President could stay above dirty fray.

But, winning is more important.
