Biden Asks New Hampshire Audience to Imagine Barack Obama’s Assassination
2020 Democrat front runner Joe Biden held a town hall event in Hanover, New Hampshire on Friday to discuss his healthcare plan.
Biden, who is known for his gaffes and over all awkwardness, asked the audience to imagine Barack Obama’s assassination during a question-and-answer session.
Once again Biden brought up the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy, but this time he dragged Barack Obama into the conversation.
The New York Times reported:
“My senior semester they were both shot and killed,” Mr. Biden said. “Imagine what would have happened if, God forbid, Barack Obama had been assassinated after becoming the de facto nominee. What would have happened in America?”
I think of where we are at the moment. You know, none of you men are old — women are old enough, but a couple of you guys are old enough to remember. I graduated in 1968. Everybody before me was, drop out, go to Haight-Ashbury, don’t trust anybody over 30, everybody not getting involved. I’m serious, I know no woman will shake their head and acknowledge it, but you guys know what I’m talking about. Right? But then what happened? Dr. Ki— I only have two political heroes. I have one hero who was my dad, but I have two political heroes were Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy. My senior semester they were both shot and killed. Imagine what would have happened if, God forbid, Barack Obama had been assassinated after becoming the de facto nominee. What would have happened in America?
Biden also admitted that “public option” of his healthcare plan will not be high quality, but it will be “affordable.”
Wasn’t Barack Obama’s “Affordable Care Act” — which was passed while Biden was his Vice President supposed to be the holy grail of healthcare?
