Carville: “Clorox Kid Trump” Has No Business Referencing Biden’s Gaffes
One thing Donald Trump likes to do in a political campaign is find his opponents weakness, then relentlessly talk about it. For Hillary Clinton, it was her emails. The President stayed on message and soon had his supporters chanting “lock her up,” during rallies.
The tact Trump will take in his race against Joe Biden is already becoming clear. The President and his reelection team will, time and time again, reference Biden’s mental gaffes. Former Democratic strategist James Carville recently claimed that it is a losing strategy as “Clorox Kid” Trump makes plenty of mistakes himself.
Carville made the comments while appearing on Kasie Hunt’s CNN show. The host played a clip of Trump answering a question about Biden’s best political feature.
“Well, I would have said experience, but he doesn’t really have experience because I don’t think he remembers what he did yesterday,” said the President. “So how is that experience? He’s not mentally sharp enough to be president. Biden doesn’t know — I mean, he doesn’t know he’s alive.”
Carville responded to the clip:
The Clorox kid? Anybody can make a gaffe, make a word come out the wrong way. Nobody ever stood in front of the whole United States and told them to drink Clorox, right? We have to quit chasing this stupidity around. He is getting beat and he’s getting beat bad. He’s getting beat in the Fox poll, the Quinnipiac poll, the NBC poll. And he’s going to lose bad. And Jonathan Swain is right. They’re going to try anything they can to try to change the conversation. They’re not going to be successful. And we don’t need to be helping him be successful. He doesn’t know where he is right now. You can look, the American people are turning on him by the day. Joe Biden is fine. Joe Biden performed I thought superbly in a lot of the debates. Yeah, he said some things sometimes that came out the wrong way. Go look at Trump gaffes. Look at the things that he has said and the words he’s mispronounced. I mean they’re just silly. We don’t need to follow this kind of silliness that he puts out. And the idea he’s going to go play golf and that’s going to turn this election around for him, that’s his only hope? Play golf, man, can’t lose doing that! At least you’re not talking to the public!
