Joke of the Week: Biden Will Stand Up to China Better Than Trump

George Will, the Washington Post’s resident “thoughtful conservative,” is one of many NeverTrumpers who sees salvation in the form of Joe Biden. Apparently missing the fact that Biden’s promised agenda is the most progressive/liberal platform of any presidential nominee in history, Will plainly favors the (comparatively) mild-mannered former vice president to our current leader. So much does Will prefer Biden that he’s willing to make fanciful statements like the one he made last week: That Joe Biden would “actually stand up to China.”

You know, as opposed to the guy who has spent the last four years standing up to China.

Will lays out his case:

Most of this cycle’s Democratic presidential aspirants avoided reminding people that the world is a dangerous place. However, during the Feb. 25 debate in Charleston, S.C., Biden called China’s President Xi Jinping “a thug”: “This is a guy who doesn’t have a democratic-with-a-small-‘d’ bone in his body.”

Economist John Maynard Keynes supposedly said, “When the facts change, I change my mind.” Biden, citing new facts, including aggression against Hong Kong’s freedom and “a million Uighurs” in “concentration camps,” has jettisoned his 2016 talk of his “enhanced cooperation” with Xi. In 34 of Biden’s 36 Senate years, he was on the Foreign Relations Committee, which he chaired for four years.

Um, yeah.

So, George, here’s the thing: The big problems with China don’t surround Hong Kong or the Muslims. Granted, those are part of the calculation that the U.S. should take into consideration, but they are small beans compared to the issues that were already very much relevant in 2016. They don’t amount to anything compared to China’s aggression in the seas of the South Pacific, they don’t mean much compared to their ongoing theft of American intellectual property, and they don’t mean squat when compared to their dominance over our trade posture.

But okay, George, we’ll take your argument at face value: Biden has changed, and now he’s going to be the “tough one” on China.

Then, how to explain Biden’s remarks about Trump’s ban on travel from China in the early days of the pandemic?

“We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus. We need to lead the way with science — not Donald Trump’s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency,” Biden said.

Or what about this remark in Iowa, when addressing Trump administration concerns that China was a growing economic and military threat to the U.S.?

“China is going to eat our lunch? Come on, man,” Biden said. “I mean, you know, they’re not bad folks, folks. But guess what? They’re not competition for us. The fact of the matter is we can do all we need to do without punishing anybody.”

This is not a man prepared to lead the U.S. into a post-coronavirus future as it relates to China. This is not a man prepared to lead, period.

What do you think?

    • Bidumbass is famous for sucking Chinese cocks. The Chinese love him because he gives them such great blowjobs. So if you’re a faggot, VOTE BIDEN 2020.

    • China owns Biden and Hunter Biden. Joe has been a crook ever since graduate school when he plagiarized his theses and almost didn’t graduate law school. His glib tongue has always been his weapon but now, due to overuse, even his oratory lacks credence.

  2. George Will (Mr. Knowitall) proved 5 years ago that he is not a true conservative! He is a Democrat in a Republican suit and the fact that he knows everything about everything proves he’s a Democrat!!

  3. does the nasty language above really help our Republican image?
    I would except no less from Liberals, however.

    • Totally agree with you and I’m surprised Conservative Free Press allowed the vulgar language to be posted. Each of the people posting could have gotten the message across without the vulgarity.

  4. Are you kidding ME?!!? . . . He’ll genuflect and give them the RED CARPET TREATMENT like a GOOD little Socialist/Communist. Don’t vote for him (or ANY Democrat) if you VALUE your country – America is NOT spelled with a “k”, as in Amerika! One WARY Democrat. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  5. Biden is a real joke, he is part of the China machine. I know not one democrat that can be trusted, they are all a lying obstruction of the truth machine if I ever seen one..

  6. This is an example of the real problem I have with #NeverTrumpers. They all claim to be devout conservatives and their beef with Trump is that they thought he was running as a conservative but would govern as a leftist. Well, he ran and he won and when he did, he actually did everything he said he would do-conservative, right down the middle. He has given us a much more conservative court system, including two very conservative SCOTUS Justices. He has made our military stronger, he has reduced the number of regulations and rules, he has given us a tax cut, he had the economy humming along like a Rolls-Royce, he had unemployment as close as it’s possible to get to full employment (and this included all groups, all ethnicities and all genders), he has done more to protect our southern border than any president before him, he has brought many manufacturing jobs back to America from other countries and he has made the US energy independent. No one could ask more of a conservative president. I guess when you have made a stupid mistake and you’re too proud and conceited to admit it, you have to just keep on keeping on.

  7. Biden Will Stand Up to China Better Than Trump but only if they give his worthless, know nothing son a raise and a corner office while he “WORKS” on the Board of Directors of the Holding Company that he and his friends started. After all the company got was a mear $1 Billion Dollars.

  8. I can’t stop laughing and wonder what kind of happy pills that George Will is gulping. Biden is as corrupt and incompetent as any presidential candidate……….since Hillary. He could not organize a girl scout cookie sale on a sidewalk and his family has gotten many millions from the Chinks.

  9. Biden, Clinton and many others politicians have already been bought and paid for by china. It takes a person who love their Country and all the real Americans that live in it to resist the greed that many politicians do not.

  10. I like the helpful info you provide in your articles.
    I’ll bookmark your blog and check again here frequently.
    I’m quite sure I will learn plenty of new stuff right here!
    Good luck for the next!
