Aww, we’re gonna miss this guy! Vice President Joe Biden stopped by ‘The Tonight Show’ for his first ever appearance and laid into Donald Trump big time, with both his trademark humor and seriousness. He even has doubts the tycoon actually wants the job of president! Keep reading for more on what he had to say.
Joe Biden, 73, got the mother of all welcomes when he sat down to chat with Jimmy Fallon, 42, for the very first time, getting a rousing and loud standing ovation from the audience. In a little over a month we’re going to find out whose going to be replacing him as Veep, and with this crazy election Joe had some amazing disses on Donald Trump, 70. He he thinks from his shocking lack of knowledge that Donald may never have actually wanted to get all the way to the White House!
He told Jimmy that voters, “Are uneasy, I don’t think they’ve made up their minds yet, but it has surprised me how well he did in the Republican primaries and that he’s still in the game. He just seems to….I’ve never known a candidate who knows as little about the world as this man does. It’s almost like the guy didn’t really intend to do this. He thought this was a lark that could go somewhere and my God, here we are guys.” OMG, he WENT there! There have been speculation and conspiracies that Donald didn’t actually want the job of President, he just wanted the fun of the campaigning bluster and now here he is, one step away from the White House.
He went on to say that, “What amazes me about Donald Trump — he’s probably a decent guy — but his lack of sensibilities, the way he talks about ‘I’m rooting for the housing market to fail because that’s business’…that’s not business, that’s callous. Or that ‘I paid no taxes and that makes me smart,’ What does that make the rest of us, suckers? Can you think of any president you studied, read about or knew who would say anything like that?. Name me one president who’d do that.”
When Jimmy asked him if he watched the presidential debate Sept. 25, the devout Catholic crossed himself and began the Hail Mary, saying “Bless me father for I have sinned.” HAH! Too funny. “Actually I was watching by myself and for awhile there I thought I’ve never quite seen anything like that,” he said with exhausted disbelief. When Jimmy asked about how they kept running fact checking on the candidates, Joe zinged back,” I’ve never seen anybody who knew as few facts.”
