Biden was speaking to the crowd at the Human Rights Campaign dinner in Washington on Saturday night, when he lamented the fact that “virulent people” and the “dregs of society” have a friend in the White House.
I don’t what’s worse, being called the “dregs of society”, or “virulent”, which means poisonous, toxic and dangerous – either way, Biden just insulted the millions of Americans who support President Trump. What he said is worse than Hillary Clinton calling us Deplorables.
“Despite losing in the courts and in the court of public opinion, these forces of intolerance remain determined to undermine and roll back the progress you all have made,” he argued.
“This time they — not you — have an ally in the White House. They’re a small percentage of the American people, virulent people,” he continued. “Some of them the dregs of society.
“And instead of using the full might of the executive branch to secure justice, dignity [and] safety for all, the president uses the White House as a literal, literal bully pulpit, callously exerting his power over those who have little or none.”
We are all used to Creepy Joe saying stupid stuff but this is too far even for him. https://t.co/vNiD9TDZg6

He is called Creepy Joe Biden for a reason… everyone knows he has a problem keeping his hands off of women, and the creepy part comes into play because that includes young children.

Biden also asked for God’s forgiveness for not speaking out against President Trump sooner. Biden said he and former president Barack Obama agreed to stay silent for a while to give the new administration the “chance to get up and running in the first year”.
“God forgive me”, he added before blessing himself with the sign of the cross. Biden’s wife Jill then reassured the crowd by saying the couple no longer plan on remaining silent and now want to “pick a fight” against bullies.
The president eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., said this time “creepy Joe’s” comments “went too far”. Biden says he’ll decide in January whether he’ll run for president in 2020. He did reply “thank you” to the supporters who yelled “run Joe!” at the end of his speech.
