Joe Biden finally got the message, that the only way to win the Hispanic and independent vote, he needed to distance himself from Sen. Bernie Sanders and the socialists’ branch of the democratic party.
During an event in Northeast Wisconsin, Joe Biden was asked by Fox 11’s Kia Murray if he could address voter’s concerns about him being elected and pursuing a socialist agenda.
“I beat the socialist, that’s how I got elected, that’s how I got the nomination,” responded former Vice President Joe Biden. “Do I look like a socialist? Look at my career, my whole career. I am not a socialist.”
“Beating the socialist” was a direct reference to Sen. Bernie Sanders, who considers himself a “democratic socialist” and who has campaigned together with other democrats like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on issues like free education and free health care, higher minimum wage, and distribution of wealth.
Biden tells @fox11news: "I beat the socialist, that's how I got elected, that's how I got the nomination. Do I look like a socialist? Look at my career, my whole career. I am not a socialist."https://t.co/uE9VjrfrJB pic.twitter.com/AeYLpNB0Fy— Johnny Verhovek (@JTHVerhovek) September 22, 2020
