MUNICH Speaking on German soil 75 years after the U.S. and its allies prepared for D-Day, Joe Biden described America as "an embarrassment" and its trade policies "self-defeating."
"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 thats not right, the former vice president and potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate told the Munich Security Conference. "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."
Biden, 76, speaking at the annual gathering of foreign policy leaders, didn't mention Trump by name. But, despite a longstanding tradition of politics "stopping at the water's edge" and refraining from criticizing a commander-in-chief while on foreign soil, Biden took the opportunity to blast him, even veering into criticism of domestic policy as he launched into what sounded like a stump speech.
The former vice president was speaking exactly three-quarters of a century after American troops were fighting against Germans at the Battle of Anzio and Allied military staffs were deep into planning for the D-Day invasion of Normandy less than 4 months later.
Biden said: "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 weve 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.

Biden is an embarrassment just like 0bama’s hate America tours.
He sounds like Moochelle who never thought America was that great as they grifted their way to the top.
That should boost his street cred with the primary voters.
Why don’t you just stay there then Butthole?
Dont come back you Quisling F$&k!
Very sad that a former Vice President would ever say this about his own country, especially on a foreign shore. No excuse!
He stated this an hour before boarding a jet to Thailand to get him Asian Preteen Nookie.
Tell us about “groping” kids, Biden....Hmmmmm???
Don’t come back, Groper!
If he is so ashamed he can leave. I’m sure some sh_thole country would love to have him.
Admitting that you participated in helping get us there. It took 8 years and was almost without hope. Until Donald J Trump came along.
Enjoy the suck, Biden!
In a way he’s right.
We’re an embarrassment because we have politicians like him who go off on overseas trips and trash our nation profusely.
Just once I’d like to see one of these guys try to get back on their aircraft to come home, and find that they are no longer authorized to use it.
The Obama in this one is strong.
Pretty sure I saw John “F” Kerry was at this event.
Germans eat this stuff up.
Loser biden despises Free American Citizens and Free America...always has...always will. He is sooooo elite. What a senile putz and child molester.
When I saw to liberals that they and their politicians like Obama and Biden HATE America they get mad. This is why we can say they hate America.
