Speaking at the Munich Security Conference over the weekend, former Vice President Joe Biden tried his best to imitate his former boss, Barack Obama, by apologizing for America, implying that the Trump administration is "an embarrassment."
Trying to curry favor with Europeans who hold America in contempt, Biden said: "The America I see values basic human decency, not snatching children from their parents or turning our back on refugees at our border. Americans know that’s not right. The American people understand plainly that this makes us an embarrassment. The American people know, overwhelmingly, that it is not right. That it is not who we are."
As The Washington Examiner reported, Biden added: "While I cannot speak today as an elected government official who is able to set policy, I can speak as a citizen. I can offer insight into my country.
I know we’ve heard a lot today about leadership, but in my experience, leadership only exists if somebody — and others — are with you. Leadership in the absence of people who are with you is not leadership.”
Despite the fact that Biden was clearly attacking the Trump Administration in public, he couldn't resist this piece of hypocrisy: “You’re never allowed to disagree with your brothers and sisters in public.
Today, because of, I think, a lack of leadership coming from the other side of the Atlantic, we find ourselves in a different place,and it’s uncomfortable.”
