BALTIMORE, Md. — Vice President Joe Biden called the selection of Republican candidates for the presidency a gift from God to Democrats this week during a talk in Maryland.
Biden was speaking to House Democrats at their annual retreat in Baltimore.
“We may be given a gift from the Lord in the presidential race here,” he stated. “I don’t know who to root for more: [Sen. Ted] Cruz or, uh, what’s that guy’s name? He’s having a fundraiser for veterans tonight, I’m told.”
Trump was referring to billionaire business mogul Donald Trump, who skipped Thursday’s Republican debate out of objection that it was being hosted by Fox News’ Megyn Kelly.
“[A]ll kidding aside folks, it’s been a tough last couple of [election] cycles,” Biden said. “But we should get up, man. There’s a real shot here.”
“I’m confident we’ll win back the Senate. I think we can make great inroads and maybe win back the House, when no one expects it now,” he stated.
Biden also made jabs regarding new Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.
“We shouldn’t apologize for what we are for, and we should point out what they are for,” he said. “Paul Ryan is a lovely guy. He gave us such a gift. He passed the Ryan budget.”
Those present began to laugh.
“No, no, no, no, no,” he said. “I am being deadly earnest. You guys don’t have to make anything up.”
Attendees laughed even louder.
As previously reported, Biden used the Lord’s name in vain last year at an event for the homosexual advocacy group Human Rights Campaign (HRC) as he spoke against comments made by Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson. Carson had suggested that some men may become involved with homosexuality while in prison.
“Every ridiculous assertion from Dr. Carson on—I mean, ridiculous. I mean, J****, G**,” Biden said. “Oh G**. I mean, it’s kind of hard to fathom, isn’t it?”
Biden, a Roman Catholic, is also an abortion advocate in addition to being supportive of homosexuality and transgenderism.
