    All Democrats are communists and hate America anyway. Any veteran or active troop that votes for Democrats should be ashamed.

    First, the mainstream media will ignore this too. Second, he was obviously joking, but he never served so it was in poor taste, which is typical for Biden.

    I loathe the man but I don't think he meant any harm in that.

    Yet again, I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt and say it was an obvious joke. Same as the "dog faced pony soldier." Also, it's from 2016, if that matters. I'm just trying to be intellectually honest. He's a terrible choice for a nominee, but let's attack him for his terrible policies that have been wrong almost every time when put up against history.

    I am sure he didn't mean any harm, it was in poor taste and isn't an excuse. Next in line and all. Yet flames Trump for unsubstantiated claims(unless I missed it)

    You know what? **** the “he was just joking” defense.

    For the past decade, the left has been ruining people’s lives and careers based on jokes, out of context statements, and banter. Intent has never mattered to them so why should Biden’s intent matter now?

    THIS x 1000. People defending him are playing right into the communist's hands.

    Yep. Joe was pretty clearly making a crass joke for the military.

    But the left created this "we can't joke any more" mess themselves. They made the bed, let Joe lie in it.

    Once again, they accuse Trump of what Joe does.

    Collusion
    Quid pro quo
    Treason
    Disrespecting our troops

    I’ve discovered that a lot of American men, especially of my boomer generation, nowadays kick themselves for not joining the military.

    A good friend relayed a story that his church, on Veteran’s Day, had all the veterans in the congregation stand, in order to receive their due recognition. He told me he felt ashamed that he was not among the standing. A moment you don’t see often in modern America. Shame. For not doing something you should have done.

    I realize Joe was joking here, and I think it was a lame attempt at achieving some sort of commonality with a group he wishes he belonged to.

    And if they're forced to cover it, they'll explain it away.

    I have friends who would say - when amongst themselves - "Vamos cabrones", and it clearly is a joking insult.
    Problem is, Biden is not a friend of the military. He wants to be a common C'mon man, but he is an elitist, one of the worst.

    Might have been mimicking Patton...

    General George Patton was one of the most controversial, arrogant, and successful generals in American military history. Perhaps his most famous quote, delivered to troops during World War Two, is remembered by those troops as words to the effect of:
    “No dumb bastard ever won a war by going out and dying for his country. He won it by making some other dumb bastard die for his country."

    Who knows, might be too late to ask him to remember.
