Trump: My Mistakes Are Coordinated, Biden’s Are Because “He’s Dumb”

Donald Trump’s State of the Union address was focused on unifying the two parties. While he did make sure to get some of his token insults in, he was generally more restrained than usual.

That however, was not true during a lunch meeting he had with reporters before he made the speech. Trump took aim at a number of political opponents, among them Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and John McCain.

Of Joe Biden, the president said, “When I say something that you might think is a gaffe, it’s on purpose; it’s not a gaffe. When Biden says something dumb, it’s because he’s dumb.” Biden has not announced that he will be running for president in 2020, but many pundits feel that is likely.

Trump also spoke negatively of Elizabeth Warren, using language that many feel is racist. The president claimed, “I hope I haven’t wounded Pocahontas too badly … I’d like to run against her.”

Trump saved some of his harshest criticisms for frequent critic, John McCain. After claiming that McCain betrayed him with his Obamacare vote, the president said, “”He wrote a book and the book bombed.”

The rip did not go unnoticed by the late senator’s family. Daughter Meghan McCain angrily responded, “The president’s obsession with my father 6 months after his death is pathetic and telling – even at a time when he should be focusing on his message to the American public and the state of our union – the greatness of my father’s life and legacy haunts you.”
