    Bernie Sanders gave former presidential-primary foe Joe Biden his biggest endorsement yet Monday by joining him in a livestreamed event. “We must come together to defeat the most dangerous president in modern history,” Sanders tweeted. “Bernie, I’m gonna need you,” Biden told the Vermont US senator.

    Wisconsin is releasing results from its presidential primary and state Supreme Court election after the deadline to send in absentee ballots passes at 4 p.m. Central Time and 5 p.m. Eastern Time on April 13. What's at stake? Bernie Sanders officially dropped out of the presidential primary on April 8, making former VP Joe Biden the presumptive Democratic nominee. While Sanders will continue to stay on the ballot in upcoming primaries and earn delegates from those contests, he formally endorsed Biden on April 13. In the Democratic presidential primary, Wisconsin allocates 84 pledged delegates to the Democracy convention, with 55...

    A majority of Democrats want to nominate New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for president instead of Joe Biden, according to poll results shared exclusively with The Post. The national poll found 56 percent of Democrats prefer Cuomo, with 44 percent wanting to stick with presumptive nominee Biden — a 12-point margin well outside the 4.8 percent margin of error for the Democratic sample. Hispanic voters, young people, women and self-identified liberals are most likely to favor dumping the former vice president for Cuomo. Among people of any party — including independents — who voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016,...

    WASHINGTON – In a virtual fundraiser with donors Friday night, former Vice President Joe Biden said that he has formally alerted Sen. Bernie Sanders that he will move forward with a vice presidential vetting process even though neither has become the Democratic nominee. He also disclosed to donors participating in the billed “fireside chat” that he has had casual conversations with emerging leaders in the Democratic Party about possibly serving in his administration if he’s elected President of the United States. Biden, who leads Sanders in the delegate count by 313, according to NBC News' tally, said that he wanted...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden confirmed this week that Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) is one of the women he's considering as a potential running mate in his White House bid. Biden, who has already vowed to tap a woman as his vice presidential pick, said Tuesday night he’s been considering Whitmer for the role for months, but that he is eyeing as many as 10 potential candidates. “She made the list in my mind two months ago. There’s probably going to be a list, I’m in the process of, Brian, we’ll have it by mid-April, putting together an organization...

    Cuomo is on national television daily, giving his coronavirus briefings, presenting as a man of action and sympathy, fighting for his city and state that are being overwhelmed by the virus. He looks like a president. And old Joe? Biden, the expected Democratic presidential nominee, remains lost, hapless, eclipsed and marginalized by events. Biden has all but disappeared, like the time you were at the supermarket with your elderly uncle, and he wandered off, again. Frantic, you searched all the aisles until you finally found him asking the lady giving out samples for another taste of banana pudding. “Biden is...

    When it comes to #MeToo sexual misconduct issues, former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic Party's presumptive 2020 presidential nominee, has made it no secret where he stands: automatically believe women. "For a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, you've got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what she's talking about is real," said Biden during the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who faced accusations that as a teenager he had assaulted a woman at a party. As vice president, Biden played an important role in...

    Just weeks ago, Joe Biden was riding high on stunning primary wins, starting to fill rallies with thousands, dominating headlines, and quickly coalescing the Democratic Party around his candidacy. Now he is hunkered down in his Wilmington basement, forced to communicate through live stream technology that he says took four days to install. In normal circumstances, Biden would be the figurehead of his party. But in the wake of the coronavirus, local leaders and governors like New York's Andrew Cuomo are on the front pages and at the frontlines of a global health and economic crisis. On the trail, the...

    Democrats are publicly talking about “contingency options” for their July convention in Milwaukee in case the coronavirus persists in being a public-health threat. But privately, some are also talking about needing a Plan B if Joe Biden, their nominee apparent, continues to flounder. Some Democrats are openly talking up New York governor Andrew Cuomo, whose profile has soared during the crisis, as a Biden stand-in. Yesterday, a Draft Cuomo 2020 account on Twitter announced that “Times have changed & we need Gov. Cuomo to be the nominee. Our next POTUS must be one w/an ability to lead thru this crisis.”...

    To modify T S Eliot in "The Hollow Men" (whose theme seems not inappropriate), this is the way the world ends, not with a Bern but a whimper. As I said on Rush the morning after Super Tuesday, Senator Sanders blew the 2016 election with a single line - his crotchetty insistence to Mrs Clinton that he was "sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails". That told Hillary that he wouldn't go after her on the subject of her corruption and lawlessness. Which in turn told Hillary that Bernie wasn't serious. And so it proved. Four years later,...

    U.S. Rep. Dan Crenshaw fired back overnight after Joe Biden criticized President Trump’s actions on the coronavirus outbreak. “A wall will not stop the coronavirus,” Biden wrote on Twitter on Thursday night, attempting to link the outbreak to Trump’s signature immigration goal of a strong barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border.

    ...Bernie is a poor debater. Not as much as Biden, but close enough. All he can do is respond to every question with an angry rant about corporations and medical care. That's not going to win anything. After Biden's victory speech, it's clear that the current brains behind his campaign have been able to get him to memorize his own speeches and deliver them in an angry tone that passes for energy...

    The modern media trend is to make fun of President Trump for his alleged and actual misstatements of fact. You have to go a long way -- in this case Sky News in Australia -- to find a media outlet willing to make fun of a U.S. liberal Democrat. The host of a program called "Outsiders," Rita Panahi, assembled a montage of gaffes and gibberish from former vice president and current frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination, Joe Biden. The Biden montage makes you ask: Is this guy mentally fit to be president? Biden supporters might argue the clips are...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday said the Trump administration’s coronavirus response has been a “colossal” failure. “The administration’s failure on testing is colossal. And it’s a failure of planning, leadership and execution,” Biden said at a press conference addressing the deadly outbreak. “By next week, the number of tests should be in the millions, not the thousands.”

    Former Vice President Joe Biden rolled out his plan to combat the coronavirus, also know as COVID-19, on Thursday as the virus rapidly spreads throughout the United States. Biden's plan calls for a number of measures, including the establishment of an effective national response to the virus through making testing free and widely available, as well as the establishment of ten mobile sites and drive-through facilities per state. The former vice president also called on greater transparency from the White House in terms of how many individuals have been tested. The plan also called for an economic response to the...

    Washington -- The forces of militant ignorance are in motion again. They are marching with Crazy Bernie Sanders and his spendthrift wife. They are marching with Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the former bartender. They are rousing the drowsy forces of the Occupy Wall Street movement and the drowsy forces of the Occupy D.C. movement, who have been recumbent for the past decade. You remember them. They were the utopian socialists and parasites who provided so much hope to the left-wing Democrats back in 2011 and 2012. They slept in parks. They hassled pedestrians. They, occasionally, relieved themselves on parked automobiles. I...

    A Yale psychiatrist named Bandy Lee has repeatedly claimed that Trump is mentally unfit for office. Democrats in Congress have even had official meetings with her. This woman has never even met Trump, but she feels perfectly fine offering her diagnosis, in a clear ethical violation of her profession. Now that Joe Biden has become an increasing cause for concern, due to his aging mind, Bandy Lee refuses to offer a diagnosis of Biden. Washington Monthly reports: Brandy X. Lee, one of the mental health professionals who has been very vocal about Trump’s unfitness for office, explained why a declination to...

    It’s sobriety time for Trump partisans who were feeling wildly upbeat in the wake of the self-destructive Democratic failure with impeachment and from polls showing most Americans expected the president to win a second term. The primary results Tuesday night in Michigan should be setting off alarm bells in Trump Land. They are so suggestive of a possible Democratic path to victory in November that they remind me of the expert speaking in the midst of a crisis on a TV chat show in the Pixar classic “Monsters, Inc.” He is a talking pencil who speaks with a Viennese accent...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden this week told a construction worker in Detroit, Michigan, that he was “full of shit” and threatened to slap him. Incredibly, the interaction has won the Democratic candidate high praise from the same people who have screamed practically nonstop since 2015 about President Trump’s lack of honor, dignity, and character. “Kind of amazing that anybody thinks this ... makes Biden look anything other than terrific,” said the Atlantic’s David Frum of the former vice president’s outburst. “He shushes the aide who wants to lead him away — and then engages a hostile critic face to...
