“He called the military stupid. He said stupid bastards,” Trump said. “And he said it on tape.”
Biden denied the allegations that he ever said anything of his sort, shaking his head.
Trump, however, was correct about Biden’s comments and how they were all caught on tape.
In 2016, Biden visited troops stationed at Al Dhafra Air Base in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. In a video recording of his speech, Biden can be heard commanding the troops to clap after he mentioned he nominated one of the appointed one of the lieutenants to the academy. He also insults them for being a “dull bunch.”
“Clap for that you stupid bastards,” Biden said.
“Man, you are a dull bunch. Must be slow here, man,” he added.
According to Trump, Biden’s denial of his on-the-record comments was not only insulting to the military but also demonstrated the collaborated bias from the left and the media against his presidency.
“He said I said something about the military. He and his friends made it up, and then they went with it. I never said it,” Trump said, referring to the hit piece published by Atlantic Editor in Chief Jeffrey Goldberg.
