Joe Biden just called President Donald Trump “a joke” and he is not laughing in a new interview with CNN.
Biden slammed Trump’s recent remarks calling Democrats who didn’t applaud his State of the Union “treasonous,” telling CNN’s Chris Cuomo that he “marvels at some of the things [Trump] says and does.”
Cuomo noted that the White House has since called the remark tongue-in-cheek. “They say Democrats can’t take a joke,” he told Biden.
“Well, let me tell you, he’s a joke,” the former vice president returned.
In a speech in Cincinnati on Monday, Trump said that Democrats not clapping for his first State of the Union address amounted to “treason,” adding, “They certainly didn’t seem to love our country very much.” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders later claimed the president was “clearly joking.”
