Poor Sleepy Joe just can’t catch a break, despite being the darling of the Democrat establishment. At one of his home stretch campaign stops in Iowa, a man emerged from the “crowd” (that might be outnumbered by the media) wearing a shirt reading “Settle For Biden.”
The man goes, “Mr. Vice President I just want to say you’re a fine candidate and I’m planning on settling for Biden in 2020. I think you could also, for Biden, and be the Hillary of 2020.”
Turns out this guy is part of a comedy duo who was trolling Biden, as Mediaite elaborates and provides more video:
Vice President Biden held a town hall in North Liberty, Iowa after securing the endorsement of the Amalgamated Transit Union on Saturday, and several minutes into his remarks was interrupted by a young man in the audience.
“Mr. Vice President, my wife recently left me, she is divorcing me, what can I do to get her back?” said the young man, who turned out to be Jason Selvig of the comedy duo The Good Liars.
“What advice could you give somebody like me to get her back?” Selvig asked.
“I’ll talk to you afterwards okay?” Biden said, adding “I’m happy to, I promise I’ll talk to you afterwards, all right?”
“Well, could we just get this out right now because we’re, you know we’re live,” Selvig said.
“No, no we’re live,” Biden said, then cracked “I’m beginning to see why your wife left you.”
Several minutes later, a man who turned out to be Davram Stiefler — the other allegedly Good Liar — stood up and said “Mr. Vice President I just want to say you’re a fine candidate and I’m planning on settling for Biden in 2020.”
As the crowd jeered at him to “Sit down,” Stiefler added “I think you could also, for Biden, and be the Hillary of 2020.”
The crowd stared chanting “LET’S GO JOE! LET’S GO JOE!” to drown the guy out and support The Sleepy One.
Selvig also trolled Elizabeth Warren with a faux marriage proposal later that same day.
The comedy duo ‘Good Liars’ are known more for trolling Republican candidates.
