– Joe Biden, former
vice president and Barack Obama’s
token white friend. (upbeat jazzy music) Joe Biden, like most old
people, wasn’t always old. In fact, when he started
his political career, he was the fresh face. – [Reporter] Biden’s
Senate career began with him as the fifth
youngest senator ever elected at 29 in 1972. – [Reporter] He served in
the Senate for three decades. – [Reporter] Biden’s
early years in the Senate saw seismic political change. The end of the Vietnam War, the impeachment
of Richard Nixon. – [Reporter] Biden never
moved to Washington, choosing instead to commute
home by train each night. – [Reporter] He has a
nickname of Amtrak Joe. – I take this train, literally, I’ve taken it over 7,400 times
since I got in the Senate. – But people don’t
just love Joe Biden because he’s a down to
Earth, everyday man, no. People love him because
he’s an adorable goofball. In fact, the only thing
that spends more time in Biden’s mouth than those
perfect teeth is his own foot. – [Reporter] His biggest
possible weakness? His reputation
for verbal gaffes. – As Barack says, a
three letter word. Jobs, J-O-B-S, jobs. You cannot go to a 7-11
or a Dunkin’ Donuts, unless you have a slight
Indian accent to fully, I’m not joking. His mama lived in Long
Island for 10 years or so, God rest her soul, and. Oh she’s, wait, your mom’s still
alive, and your dad passed. God bless her soul. – [Reporter] He said this is
a politician in a wheelchair. – Stand up, Chuck,
let ’em see ya. Oh, God love ya. What am I talking about? I tell you what, you’re making everybody
else stand up though, pal. Thank you very, very much. I tell you what,
stand up for Chuck. – That’s right. Let’s show Chuck
what he’s missing. Everyone else stand up. Let’s rub it in. This guy’s got no hands. How ’bout a round of applause? Come on! Come on! You know what, in a weird
way, I feel like these gaffes are what made Biden the perfect
balance to President Obama. ‘Cause Obama
measured every word. Like, you could feel him
thinking as he was talking. But when Biden talks,
his brain just clicks, I’m Feeling Lucky,
and the first result comes out of his mouth. That’s it. Now, Biden didn’t just spend 50 years in Washington
going viral. The man has also had some
major accomplishments. – [Reporter] Biden
would enter the race as a foreign policy heavyweight. In the Senate, he chaired the
Foreign Relations Committee. – [Reporter] 26 years
ago, a then Senator Biden wrote the Violence
Against Women Act. – He was a key player
on guns in the ’90s with the Brady Bill and
the assault weapons ban. – [Reporter] Biden forced
the president’s hand on the gay marriage issue,
endorsing same-sex unions before the president’s
planned announcement. – Biden’s been involved in
issues that matter to Democrats, gun control, women’s
rights, gay marriage, he was even one of the first
to support trans rights. Although he probably thought
he was supporting trains, but that’s still
very impressive. But anyone who’s
been around that long is also gonna have some baggage. And Biden, oh man,
he’s got enough baggage to fill a whole Amtrak car. – [Reporter] Biden
is already explaining a decades long record,
including his rolling passing the now controversial
1994 crime bill, his vote for the Iraq War,
skepticism of Anita Hill, and past comments on busing
to desegregate schools. – Ooh, okay. So on the downside, Joe Biden got a lot of
things wrong back in the day. But on the upside, he managed
to grow his hair back. (crowd laughing) Look at that, huh? This guy has the Benjamin
Button of scalps. (crowd laughing) Now, despite some problematic
positions in his past, many are saying that
democrats are still likely to vote for Joe Biden,
partly because of how progressive he’s become, and
partly because of how good he is at getting
under Trump’s skin. – The Press always asked me, Don’t I wish I
were debating him. No, I wish we were
in high school. I could take him behind the gym. (crowd cheering)
That’s what I wish. – Did you see where
Biden wants to take me, to the back of the barn, me. He wants to. I’d love that. I’d love that. Mr. Tough guy. – If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym
and beat the hell out of him. – That would not last long. (crowd cheering) Go like this. (blowing air) He’s down, and
he’ll never get up. He’ll never get up – Old man fight, old man
fight, old man fight! This would be hilarious. So, will Joe Biden,
be the democrat who gets to take on Trump? Well, we’ll have
to wait and see. But I’ll be honest, part of
me hopes that it does happen just so that we get to watch the most entertaining
debates of all time. – [Announcer] Sleepy Joe Biden. (crowd cheering) – [Biden] Mr. President, speak
softly and carry a big stick. (stick banging)
(crowd cheering) – [Trump] Go like this. (banging)
(crowd laughs) He’s down and
he’ll never get up. (crowd cheering) – Joe Biden has come
out for a very large federal gun buyback program
and an assault weapons ban. – To gun owners
out there who say, a Biden administration means they’re gonna come from my guns. – Bingo. You’re right, if you
have an assault weapon, the fact of the matter is they
should be illegal, period. – Damn, Joe Biden. (crowd cheering) Whoa. That’s a bold statement. Normally Democrats, when
they ask the question, they’re like, “Oh,
it’s not a ban, “and we’re not gonna come for
the guns, we’re not gonna.” But Biden is like, “Bingo. “I’ll see your ass at midnight.” (crowd laughing) Joe Biden has surged to a huge
lead in the Democratic Party. And in second place
is Bernie Sanders. Combined age, 642. (crowd laughs) It almost seems like they pulled that move senior citizens do, where they just cut to
the front of the line. Everyone’s too polite to
say anything, you just like, just like him him cut, it
might be his last meal ever, let him go, let him go. But I do find it interesting that Biden has especially strong
support among black women. Help me understand, why are so many black women
leaning toward Joe Biden? – Listen, don’t get me wrong, younger black women
will probably go with
Elizabeth Warren. But for older black women,
they’re going to go with Biden, because if Biden
becomes president, then Obama is back
in the White House. (crowd cheering) Yes, yes! (laughing)
– But wait, wait. – Yeah!
– Wait. Wait, but that’s not true,
Obama can’t be president again. – Who said anything
about president? If Joe Biden wins, he’s gonna
invite Obama over for dinner. And where’s dinner? – The White House.
– Boom! (crowd cheering) – Obama’s back in
the White House. I mean it’s sneaky,
but it’s all we got. (crowd laughing) – Okay fine, so maybe that
explains black women’s support. But what’s interesting
to me, Dulce, is that Democrats overall
seem to be going with Biden, which is strange like,
considering how diverse and fresh most of the
other candidates are. – Of course, yeah, this is just a simple case of familiar dick. (crowd laughing) – Familiar dick? – Yeah! See, listen, y’all know what
I’m talking about, okay? There’s that one
dude you’ve been hooking up with
for years, right? And sometimes you try
something different, but you always go back to him. That’s familiar dick. (crowd laughing and cheering) Y’all get it!
(crowd cheering) Listen, you know how well
it does, what it does. I mean, sure he’s 37 and
sells drugs on a child’s bike. (crowd laughing) But it’s the dick you know. – Okay, so if I understand
what you’re saying, you’re saying Joe Biden’s
politics is the familiar penis that the democrats
wish to return to you. – Now you’re getting
it, dimple dick. (claps hands)
(laughing) (crowd cheering) – The second night of
the Democratic debates ended just moments ago. I don’t know if it was Swalwel, but the sharks could just
smell blood in the water. All I know is Biden had
a target on his back. – I was six years old when
a presidential candidate came to the California
Democratic Convention and said, “It’s time to pass the torch “to a new generation
of Americans.” That candidate was then
Senator, Joe Biden. Joe Biden was right when
he said it was time to pass the torch to a new generation
of Americans 32 years ago. He’s still right today. If we’re gonna solve the
issues of our nation, pass the torch. If we’re gonna solve the
issues of climate chaos, pass the torch. If we’re gonna solve this
issue of student loan debt, pass the torch. If we’re gonna end gun violence
for families who are fearful of sending their kids to
school, pass the torch. – [Interviewer] Vice President, would you like to sing a torch– – I would. (crowd laughing) I’m still holding
on to that torch. – That’s right, Biden is not
letting go of that torch, even though that torch
is really uncomfortable, and told Biden that it
does not like the way that he’s holding on to it. He is holding on to that torch. (crowd cheering) Next up came
immigration, all right? The candidates told the
audience how they planned to undo the policies
enacted by Trump. No more kids in cages,
increased legal immigration, give everyone free ladders
to climb over the wall. But when it came to Joe Biden, the moderator was
more interested in
hearing his opinions on President Obama’s policies. – You served as vice
president in an administration that deported three
million people, the most ever in US history. Are you prepared to say tonight
that you and President Obama made a mistake
about deportations? Why should Latinos trust you? – This is the president
who came along with the DACA program. No one had ever
done that before. This the President sent
legislation the desk, saying he wants to find a
pathway for the 11 million undocumented the United
States of America. Then we’ll go back. – [Interviewer] Yeah, but you
didn’t answer the question. – Well, I did
answer the question. – [Interviewer] No,
Did you make a mistake with those deportations? – The President
did the best thing that was able to be done– – How about you? – I’m the Vice President
of the United States. – Oh, that was not a
good look for Biden. Because this always
happens, right? When Obama is being praised, Biden jumps into the
picture with him. But then Obama is being
criticized, Biden’s like, “Look man, I was the Vice
President, I didn’t do shit. The Vice President
doesn’t do shit. Donald Trump has become
good friends with Mexico, and he’s BFFs with Lil’ Kim. But there’s one feud the
president is not willing to end, and it’s with America’s
greatest enemy, Sleepy Joe. – Well, I heard
Biden, who’s a loser. I mean, look, Joe
never got more than 1%, except Obama took him
off the trash heap. And now it looks
like he’s failing. He looks different than used to. He acts different
than he used to. He’s even slower
than he used to be. I’d rather run against, I
think, Biden than anybody. I think he’s the
weakest mentally, and I like running against
people that are weak mentally. I think Joe is the
weakest up here. – Really, Donald? You want to compete with
a mentally weak loser? Well, then maybe you should
hold a debate with a mirror. (crowd cheering) Now, it’s no
coincidence that Trump is going after the
former VP, right? Ever since the polls
came out showing Biden beating Trump all
over the country, Trump has aimed
all of his attacks directly at his
number one threat. And Joe Biden is loving it,
because it’s setting him up as the presumptive nominee. Which is why yesterday in Iowa, he delivered a 40 minute speech
that was all about Trump. – I don’t think the president
really gets the basics. He thinks these tariffs
are being paid by China, just like he thinks
Mexico is building a wall (crowd laughing) He thinks windmills
cause cancer. Now look, you think I’m
making this up, I know. Quote, I have complete power. No you don’t, Donald Trump. Or, “Only I can fix it.” Fix yourself first,
Donald Trump. – Oh, okay, that was weird. I feel like Joe
Biden turned black by the end of that speech. (crowd laughing) Only I can fix it, no fix
yourself Donald Trump. Mike Pence, you better
come get your man. (crowd laughing) And I’ll be honest, I don’t know if this was an effective
campaign speech that would convince
a swing voter. What I do know is, Joe
Biden just got a brand new stand-up special deal on HBO. (upbeat country music) – I don’t think the president
really gets the basics. He thinks these tariffs
are being paid by China, just he thinks Mexico
is building a wall. (crowd laughing) (upbeat country music) Then there’s President Trump,
he denies climate change. What’d he tell Piers Morgan
in an interview recently? He said, “Well, weather
goes both ways.” (crowd laughing) He thinks windmills
cause cancer. Now look, you think I’m
making this up, I know. He said, those California fires, what they gotta do
is rake their leaves. (crowd laughing) I’m not joking, I’m
not making this up. – Let’s talk about
what is looming over the Biden household right
now, and that is the campaign. This is your third time. You know how hard it is,
you know how taxing it is, you know how invasive it is, you know how vitriolic
it is going to be. Are you guys ready
for what’s about to happen to your lives? – Well, you know,
the last two years, people have been coming up
to me in the supermarket, and airports, wherever
I go and saying, “Your husband has to run,
your husband has to run.” And we weren’t going to run, but then kept hearing this
sort of rhythm, this roll. And so we started
to think about it. And we called our, well. We called our family together,
we spoke to our children. We got our grandchildren
all together, and we said, “What do you think? “Do you think pop should
run for president?” And to a grandchild, they
said, “Pop has to run. “He has to change the direction,
and bring people together, “and stop all this
vitriol in this country.” (crowd applauding)
Thank you. (upbeat jazzy music)
