So, it’s official – Creepy Uncle Joe Biden’s recent #MeToo scandal wasn’t enough to keep him from running for 2020 Democrat presidential nominee.
Although most have proclaimed that Biden is the strongest candidate among the Democrats who are running for 2020, Trump responded to Biden’s announcement by calling him Sleepy Joe and doubting his ability to make it through the primaries.
Check out Trump’s tweet here:
It's certainly easy to see why Trump has dubbed Biden "Sleepy Joe." The old man looks worn and tired in this video he posted to Twitter announcing his run for presidency.
Check out the clip here:
Even if Sleepy Joe does make it through the primaries, the fact that he is basing his campaign on the false accusation that Trump supported white supremacists at the 2017 Charlottesville rally indicates that he really doesn't stand a chance against Trump.
This Twitter user pointed out that Biden's claims against Trump are totally untrue and just another case of Democrats taking words out of context to fit a narrative for their own agenda:
ABC News has more about Biden's accusation against Trump and Trump's response to Biden announcing his campaign:
President Donald Trump gave a sarcastic welcome Thursday morning to one of his potential Democratic opponents in the 2020 race for the White House , the latest candidate to enter the field, former Vice President Joe Biden.
"Welcome to the race Sleepy Joe. I only hope you have the intelligence, long in doubt, to wage a successful primary campaign," Trump tweeted, repeating a nickname he's tagged Biden with and questioning his intelligence and political aptitude. "But if you make it, I will see you at the Starting Gate!"
Biden and Trump have had a tumultuous public relationship. Trump was a primary focus of Biden's announcement video, which drilled down on the president for his comments in August 2017 after white nationalists and neo-Nazis rallied in Charlottesville, Virginia.
"He said there were 'very fine people on both sides.' Very fine people on both sides?" Biden said in the video. "With those words, the President of the United States assigned a moral equivalence between those spreading hate, and those with the courage to stand against it. And in that moment, I knew the threat to this nation was unlike any I had seen in my life time."
The Hill also commented:
“Welcome to the race Sleepy Joe. I only hope you have the intelligence, long in doubt, to wage a successful primary campaign,” Trump tweeted.
The president warned Biden the race would “be nasty” and he would be forced to confront “people who truly have some very sick & demented ideas,” an apparent reference to other Democratic primary candidates.
“But if you make it, I will see you at the Starting Gate!” Trump added.
Biden made his long-expected presidential announcement in a video in which he criticized Trump for saying there were “very fine people on both sides” of the 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., that turned deadly.
“With those words, the president of the United States assigned a moral equivalence between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it,” Biden said. “And in that moment, I knew the threat to this nation was unlike any I’d ever seen in my lifetime.
