Joe’s fighting talk for sick f**k Trump: Biden unleashes during Las Vegas fundraiser, warning he has to ‘hold his Irish temper’ around GOP rival for talking about dead son Beau
President Joe Biden blasted Donald Trump at a fundraiser in Nevada on Sunday, indicating he was considering punching his Republican rival and noting that he should ‘keep his Irish temper’ around him.
The brawl came as Biden spoke about Trump’s reported comments that fallen US soldiers were ‘piss’ and ‘losers’, which became angry as he brought up his late son Beau, who served in the Delaware National Guard in Iraq before he died in 2015. .
‘I must keep my Irish temper. I’m glad I wasn’t with him. I’m not sure what I would have done. He said they’re all suckers and losers,” Biden said of Trump.
Biden then raised his voice and sounded angry as he referred to his late son: ‘My son was not a sucker and neither was one of yours. Who does this guy think he’s talking about Americans?’

Biden repeated an abbreviated version of his fundraising speech at his Las Vegas rally later that night, walking away from his direct threats.
“This is a guy, when he was in France, they asked him to go to the American cemetery,” Biden noted, do you know what he said? He said those people were suckers and losers. Suckers and losers for God’s sake. I’m glad I wasn’t there. No, I have to say it.’
“He called your sons and daughters who gave their lives in this country suckers and losers. Who the hell does he think he is?’
Speaking to a small group of wealthy donors in Henderson, Nevada, which is about 30 minutes outside Las Vegas, Biden was more direct and forceful when he expressed his fight.
He has become more forceful in recent weeks when speaking about Trump. And Sunday’s speech included a more personal side for Biden, who spoke about his late son.
His words also indicated what he thought of Trump when reports emerged that Biden referred to the former president as a “sick f***” in conversations with his closest associates and longtime friends, Politico reported.
On Sunday, Biden specifically referred to a time in 2018, when Trump was president and allegedly did not want to visit a cemetery near Paris for Americans who fought and died in World War I because it was filled with “pistons” and ” losers’. his then chief of staff claimed. Trump denied it.
In his forceful and animated remarks at Sunday’s fundraiser, Biden repeated his charges that Trump is a threat to democracy.
He also referred to Trump as “Donald Hoover Trump” (a Herbert Hoover reference) and attacked his record on jobs, as well as Trump’s comments hoping for a recession while Biden was still in office.
“It sounds unbelievable, un-American, that a sitting — that a former president seeking the office is hoping for a recession,” Biden said.
The Biden campaign views Trump, who is leading the polls for the GOP nomination, as their rival in the 2024 general election, setting up a grudge match between the two men.
Polls show a rematch at a static tie and many other surveys show voters want an alternative choice for either.
Biden was in Nevada courting black voters as polls show his support among that community is waning.
He met with black leaders and held a get-out-the-vote rally in a traditionally black neighborhood outside Vegas’ famous strip, according to his campaign.

Courting black voters was the theme of Biden’s three-day trip to the West Coast.
The president was in Los Angeles Saturday night to court the same voting bloc and met with black entertainment leaders who were in town for the Grammys.
Biden’s stop in Nevada comes as the state wraps up early voting for the presidential preference primary. Election day for the primary is Tuesday, February 6. The president last visited Nevada in December.
Biden faces only apparent opposition in the Nevada primary, similar to what he faced in the South Carolina primary on Saturday, where he won with 97% of the vote.
He visited the historic Westside, an area northwest of the Las Vegas casino ‘strip’, where black Americans established their own casinos and clubs about 100 years ago due to segregation.
Biden narrowly beat Trump in Nevada by 33,596 votes, or less than 3%, in 2020, and polls show a rematch between the two men, which seems likely in 2024, would be just as close.
Tuesday’s Republican and Democratic primaries also give voters the options to vote for ‘None of these candidates’.
The president has used his solid position at the top of the Democratic ticket to shore up support in states and with voting blocs that will be essential to his re-election.
That includes those all-important black voters. It was black voters in South Carolina who saved Biden’s 2020 bid for the presidency, giving him a massive victory in that primary that propelled him to the nomination.
On Saturday night in Los Angeles, the president swung by George Lucas’ $32 million Bel Air mansion to woo Democratic supporters who were in town for the Grammys.
Biden arrived in Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon and headed straight for the 9,000-square-foot, 9-bedroom, 8-bathroom home in a private, gated community. Jill Biden, who traveled to the West Coast with her husband, waved away to go to her own event with supporters.
Biden reportedly met with black entertainment leaders. Lucas’ wife, Mellody Hobson, is the CEO of Ariel Investments and the chairman of Starbucks Corporation. She is the former chairman of DreamWorks Animation.
The president’s meeting comes as polls show the president’s support among black voters is falling and Donald Trump appears to be closing in on the Republican presidential nomination.
And it comes to the The United States and Britain hit 36 Houthi targets in Yemen on Saturday in a second wave of strikes that were intended. Further eliminating Iran-backed proxy militias.

Biden is on a three-day West Coast trip focused on his re-election bid. This is his third round of political visits this week – on Tuesday he was in Florida for fundraisers and on Thursday he went to Detroit to talk to auto union workers.
Many of the attendees at his Los Angeles gathering were in town for Sunday’s Grammys ceremony.
The Biden campaign ran a campaign ad during the Grammys that will focus on Biden’s support for abortion rights, which Democrats are pushing as a massive issue in the 2024 election.
The Bidens did not attend the music awards — although Jill Biden went last year — but spoke to industry leaders about the issues at stake in the election and how they can use their platforms to mobilize voters, Deadline reported.
Lucas, the creator of the Star Wars franchise, and Hobson bought the house in 2017 from a corporation with ties to Texas billionaire oilman Ross Perot. They paid $33.9 million for the home, which was built in 1929. It features a swimming pool, fountains and a putting green.
Hobson’s name was in the running for Treasury Secretary at one point when some black lawmakers wanted an African-American nominee. Biden ended up nominating Janet Yellen. Hobson, a black billionaire businesswoman, donated to Biden’s 2020 campaign.
Biden’s declining support among black voters is one of the many red flags Democrats have raised as polls show a Trump-Biden rematch in 2024 is essentially a tie.
After Trump won the New Hampshire primary, the Biden campaign declared that he had essentially locked up the Republican nomination and focused their firepower on the former president.
Some Democrats worry that Biden is not tough enough on his Republican foe as his campaign focuses on hiring staff — especially in key states — and expanding his massive campaign chest.
Key White House staffers — including Jen O’Malley Dillon, Mitch Landrieu and Mike Donilon — have moved into the campaign. O’Malley Dillon was the campaign manager for Biden’s successful 2020 run.
Biden raised more than $97 million for his re-election campaign in the last three months of last year.
Meanwhile, Trump is bleeding money from his PAC in the form of legal fees.
Donald Trump’s Save America leadership PAC and the Make America Great Again PAC spent $56 million on legal fees last year, a figure that includes $30 million in the latter half of the year.
Still, the president has vulnerabilities that worry loyalists. In addition to his age – at 81, he is the oldest US president ever elected – a USA TODAY/Suffolk University Opinion showed last month that he had the support of just 63% of black voters, a group he carried in 2020 with a whopping 87%.
Biden stepped up his efforts, including traveling to South Carolina, whose black voters gave him his first primary victory in the 2020 contest. He easily won the state’s Democratic primary on Saturday with 97% of the vote, but faced only apparent opposition.
