    Former second lady Jill Biden lashed out at President Donald Trump on Saturday, accusing him of "bullying" and being "afraid" to run against her husband. The wife of former Vice President Joe Biden told MSNBC's "Up with David Gura" that Trump was wrong to attack 16-year-old environmental activist Greta Thunberg, who was named Time magazine's person of the year before she was immediately mocked by the president. "That's bullying," Jill Biden told MSNBC. "Look at what the president did this week with that 16-year-old girl, Greta. You can't attack children. That's the bottom line." The Bidens have been center stage...

    The establishment narrative on Joe Biden is, to put it mildly, malarkey. Gropey J actually is everything the liberals accuse Donald Trump of being – bizarre, vulgar, dumb, corrupt, incompetent, and utterly unfit to be president. But yet the Creepy Veepy is so much more. In the last month, this totally not-senile, not-at-all-weird guy has assembled a track record of freaky behavior that would put mid-eighties Crispin Glover to shame.  Let’s review…Corn Pop is old news. Biden’s latest rambling onion-on-the-belt monologue was something about little kids at a pool rubbing his leg hair or something – it’s so random I’m...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign denied a report on Wednesday that Biden has signaled he would only serve one term in the White House if elected in 2020. "Lots of chatter out there on this so just want to be crystal clear: this is not a conversation our campaign is having and not something VP Biden is thinking about," Biden's deputy campaign manager and communications director, Kate Bedingfield, said in a tweet. Politico reported on Wednesday that four people who speak regularly with the former vice president said it was unlikely that he would run for reelection in 2024...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden has been signaling to aides that he would likely serve only one term in office if elected president in 2020, according to a report on Wednesday. Campaign advisers and some top Democrats have been debating whether he should publicly announce his intention not to seek a second term, but Biden is concerned that going public could make him a lame duck and rob him of political capital, Politico reported. If Biden is elected, a prominent adviser to the campaign told the news website, hes going to be 82 years old in four years and he...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday got in a tense back-and-forth with an audience member during an Iowa campaign stop after the man claimed the former vice president sent his son Hunter Biden to work for an energy company in Ukraine. "You're a damn liar, man. That's not true," Biden shot back at the man, who said the claims, which have been circulated by some on the right, were backed up by reporting on television. Biden then went on to challenge the man to a push-up contest. "You want to check my shape man, let's do pushups together here,...

    Former President Obama reportedly told a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate that his former Vice President Joe Biden doesn't have what it takes to win the Oval Office. Obama, 58, has remained relatively quiet during the first part of the Democratic primary; however, he has met with many of the candidates privately. In one particular meeting, the former president took a dig at his own vice president, according to Politico. "With one candidate, he pointed out that during his own 2008 campaign, he had an intimate bond with the electorate, especially in Iowa, that he no longer has. Then he added,...

    If Hunter carries himself publicly as he did in this interview, people will neither like him nor trust him—and that may spell trouble for Joe. The fourth Democratic primary debate offered yet another opportunity for former vice president Joe Biden to dodge questions about his son Hunter’s shady business activities. While his father was running the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy, Hunter was serving on the board of a Ukrainian natural gas company, earning up to $50,000 per month despite zero experience in the energy sector.In Tuesday night’s debate, when Anderson Cooper questioned Biden about the impropriety of this dynamic, Biden...

    (CNN)Just as Joe Biden -- and the rest of the 11 Democratic contenders -- were rounding the final turn in the fourth presidential debate on Tuesday night, a bombshell dropped. No, not on the stage in Westerville, Ohio. All the way back in Washington, DC, where reports detailing how much each of the candidates raised, spent and most importantly have left in the bank began to land at the Federal Election Commission. And the bombshell was this: Joe Biden, the former vice president of the United States and the 2020 Democratic front-runner from the day he entered the race officially...

    Hunter Biden is walking away from the board of a Chinese-backed private equity company as part of a public pledge to disavow all foreign work if his father, former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, gains the presidency in 2020. Joe Bidens second son made his move after a month of pushing by U.S. President Donald Trump who has publicly highlighted the perceived and real conflicts of interest represented by Bidens work in Asia. A statement released on his behalf by his legal counsel George Mesires said his relationship with the management company of a private equity fund thats...

    Joe Biden has insisted he doesn't want Barack Obama's endorsement in his third run for the presidency. But if history is any gauge, Obama had no intention of going out on a limb for his former VP this time around. The 'bromance' between the former president and Joe Biden that blossomed when Obama took office in 2008, dissipated in the post-White House years, according to an upcoming book about the pair: Barack and Joe: The Making of an Extraordinary Partnership. While the two men did develop a strong affection for one another, there were times Biden drove Obama over the...

    How much do you trust a Ukrainian lawmaker with unverified documents who unveiled them to the world at a news conference hosted by a Russian-owned news agency? If youre Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, you trust them quite a bit. If youre a partisan of former 2020 Democratic front-runner Joe Biden, you likely trust them not at all. If one side is completely right here, it could have a major effect on the 2020 presidential race. On Wednesday, Andriy Derkach, a member of Ukraines Parliament, held a news conference hosted by wire service Interfax-Ukraine. In it, he accused former Vice President...

    A new video from President Trumps reelection campaign takes a big swipe at former Vice President Joe Biden's fitness for office, spotlighting clips of his recent gaffes and other verbal fumbles coupled with copious clips of pundits questioning his readiness. The web video, tweeted Tuesday morning by campaign manager Brad Parscale and shared first with Fox News, stitches together everything from his recent debate-stage musing about "record players" to his statement that "poor kids" are just as talented as "white kids." Interspersed with the clips of the 76-year-old Biden's comments are those of pundits wondering about his stumbles, shakiness, mental...

    Joe must go! That was word from MSNBC contributor Anand Giridharadas on Joy Reid's MSNBC show Saturday morning. While acknowledging that Biden is not a guy-in-a-hood racist, Giridharadas accused Biden of being a racist of a more subtle sort: a throwback to the "Mad Men" era, a "Thanksgiving-uncle" racist, and someone who believes "Americaness means whiteness." [snip] Giridharadas opined that Biden would be the wrong person to take on President Trump, whom he accused of being a white nationalist. Giridharadas' concluding words on Biden: "He has to drop out."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    BFFs in D.C.? Apparently not U.S. Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris of California. According to reports, Feinstein, the senior senator from the Golden State, will throw a fundraiser next month for Democratic 2020 presidential frontrunner Joe Biden -- and not for Harris, another White House contender whose poll numbers suggest she could probably use some high-profile help. Feinstein and husband Richard Blum will co-host the Biden event Oct. 3 in San Francisco, according to a copy of the invitation obtained by CNBC. Feinstein first gave her backing to Biden in January, months before the former vice president made his...

    Political commentator and former Obama adviser David Axelrod knocked former Vice President Joe Biden for tweeting a video of himself and former President Obama ahead of Thursday night's presidential primary debate, writing that Biden's attempts to tie himself to his ex-boss's legacy were far from subtle. Axelrod, who served as chief strategist for both Obama's 2008 and 2012 campaigns, tweeted that Biden was "claiming co-authorship of Obamas record" in a way that was "about as subtle as a screen door on a submarine."

    And the winner is Donald Trump. The Democrats third presidential debate was a long-winded, platitude-filled disaster where no single candidate could claim a clear victory. Instead, the seven men and three women took turns displaying why they are all probably unelectable. Start with Joe Bidens incoherence. The nominal front-runner, the former vice president had a 40-year reputation for never shutting up. Now he cant manage to finish a sentence without interrupting himself. Nearly all his efforts to make a point were swamped by a sudden change of direction mid-sentence, and then another change a few words later as a...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign is lowering expectations in some early voting states, veteran political reporter Paul Steinhauser told Hill.TV on Monday. Just a few days ago, the Biden campaign in a conference with me and other national political reporters, they downplayed both what the vice president could do in Iowa and the expectations in New Hampshire as well, Steinhauser said during an interview on Rising. They were touting how their staff was beefing up in the Super Tuesday states and beyond, but they did lower expectations a little bit in the first four early voting states, he added....

    One of the more poignant moments of Barack Obama's presidency came at the very end, in January 2017, just days before he left the White House. He awarded Vice President Joe Biden the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Obama spoke at great length about their personal friendship and praised Biden's leadership. In response, Biden said he knew that, no matter what, Obama would always be there for him. Obama: "It was 8 1/2 years ago that I chose Joe to be my vice president. There has not been a single moment since that time that I have doubted the wisdom of...

"I am going to vote for the candidate who...

    Speaking at a bookstore in Manchester, N.H., Dr. Jill Biden urged voters on Monday to consider the "electability" of her husband, former Vice President Joe Biden, ahead of the 2020 Democratic primaries, and how they may have to "swallow a little bit" with the Democratic front-runner in order to defeat President Trump. "I know that not all of you are committed to my husband, and I respect that, but I want you to think about your candidate, his or her electability, and whos going to win this race," Dr. Biden said. "And so if you're looking at that you've got...
