President Donald Trump, speaking at a campaign rally in Minneapolis, Minnesota, poured on attacks he’s made in recent weeks against a number of people, including Democratic candidate for president Joe Biden, who also served as vice president in the Obama administration.
Trump, pretending to be speaking to Biden’s son Hunter, mocked the former vice president, saying he lacked the qualifications to become president, the Washington Examiner reported. Trump used a vulgarity to make his point, which resulted in the crowd cheering gleefully.
Biden “was never considered smart, he was never a good senator, he was only a good vice president because he understood how to kiss Barack Obama’s ass,” Trump said.

Trump made headlines last week for using a vulgarity in his commentaries as well. In a tweet he made on October 2, Trump blasted the Democrats’ actions since he became president — including recently starting an impeachment inquiry into his actions allegedly pressuring a foreign leader to open a questionable investigation into the Bidens.
“The Do Nothing Democrats should be focused on building up our Country, not wasting everyone’s time and energy on BULLSHIT, which is what they have been doing ever since I got overwhelmingly elected in 2016,” Trump said, per reporting from HuffPost.
Trump’s recent foray into using swear words isn’t new, but it likely rings hypocritical to many observers and critics of the president. In July of this year, Trump demanded that a group of lawmakers collectively known as the ‘Squad’ — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley — apologize to the country “for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said.”
Trump made those comments in July, after several times lashing out at the four and calling their remarks anti-Semitic, NBC News reported. He also claimed the four should “go back” to their countries of origin, a phrase that many consider a racist trope.
Three of the four women were born in the United States. Omar, who was born in Somalia, emigrated to the U.S. when she was a teenager.
