MSNBC shocked at Biden/Trump comparison

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

It’s no secret that Joe Biden has made a habit of putting his foot in his mouth with some pretty newsworthy gaffes. It is also no secret that Donald Trump has made some head scratching claims. So when a guest on MSNBC made an argument comparing the toll Biden’s gaffes have had on President Obama to the potential harm Trump could do on the campaign trail for Mitt Romney, the analysis didn’t seem too farfetched. Or so some would think.

Well, MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts took great offense to the former Rick Santorum spokesman Hogan Gidley’s comments, and the exchange that ensued was nothing short of hilarious:

GUEST:  Earlier on one of the shows on MSNBC one of your anchors actually said how could Mitt Romney stand next to a guy who could embarrass himself and Barack Obama could be embarrassed by a guy he made vice president.  And people who support do, and say.  This is one of these deals there are lots of people that support President Obama.

ROBERTS:  You’re going to compare Joe Biden one of this country’s most dignified, and greatest political leaders that can cross getting to both sides of the aisle, and compare him to a Donald Trump? You really want to say that.

GUEST:  I’m not comparing him to Donald Trump.

ROBERTS: You would compare him to the gaffe-tasticness of Donald Trump?

GUEST: No, you know someone on your network said they couldn’t believe that Mitt Romney would put Trump next to him because he could embarrass him at any moment…

ROBERTS:  You just said that the vice president is just as prone to embarrass the President

GUEST:  He has embarrassed the President on many occasions. This is all very, very silly stuff.  I mean, let’s get focused on the issues here. You can’t be held responsible for what people who support you say or do…

ROBERTS:  It’s another thing to thrust yourself onto the nation stage with them, appear with them what’s going to be millions of cash grab in Vegas, and shouldn’t you speak up or try to put an end to all of this as you call nonsense…

While Romney’s newfound friendship with Trump is raising some eyebrows from conservatives, Robert’s argument is remarkably hypocritical when it is known that the President spends time with communists, anarchists, and socialists.

“This is one of the most amazing exchanges I’ve ever heard,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Everybody is all up in arms with Romney and Donald Trump. I’m kind of up in arms with Donald Trump. I wonder why he’s surrounding himself with Donald Trump and people like Newt Gingrich, who is the last person you should be surrounded with. Donald Trump – he’s great entrepreneur but really?”

“I’m not saying he’s not a sincere guy,” Glenn continued. “But he’s Donald Trump for the love of Pete. I don’t think that people on the left want to cast stones about who the President or who a presidential candidate surrounds himself with.”

“Remember, this guy [President Obama] is surrounding himself with communists and anarchists, socialists and Joe Biden. I left that one for last. It should have been the first. Joe Biden. You think Donald Trump’s hair is bad. Have you looked at Joe Biden’s hair? You think he says crazy things. Donald Trump? Have you listened to Joe Biden?”

Just in case you need further evidence, Glenn played a few of Biden’s most “gaffe-tastic” moments, in which Biden proves he cannot spell or count – apparently ‘jobs’ is a three letter word – and he mistakes doctors with soft drinks. Remember the ‘Dr. Pepper’ comment?

“So I think he’s fantastic,” Glenn concluded in relation to the Vice President. “And you can’t compare him to Donald Trump… He’s far worse than Donald Trump.”

    At least Trump has a brain, I believe when Biden had brain surgery years ago, they must have taken out more than the tumor.  Trumps brain trumps Biden’s.

      With Biden, even a rotten squash, half way fermented, would trump Biden. Biden actually makes Dan Quail look good in comparison of their VP terms.

       I think if Joe Biden had a brain, he’d take it out and play with it.

    I don’t agree with everything Trump says, but for crying out loud, the man has been a successful businessman for decades and for a reason. Biden has only been successful at lying and schmoozing up to the elite on the left. Trump is honest 99.9% of the time. Sometimes that honesty gets him into trouble. So what? Biden is honest… when? Frankly, I don’t think there is a single public statement Biden has ever made that I can say that I truly believe Biden was being completely honest when he said it. Not one.

    Compare Biden to Trump? It is outrageous. But it’s not outrageous for the same reasons the MSNBC fascist takes issue with it. It’s outrageous because Trump deserves a hell of a lot more credit than to be compared to the likes of Biden as if they were on the same level. Disagree with Trump all you want. But Trump is a billionaire who is an exception among billionaires. He doesn’t want to steal your money. He doesn’t want to steal your freedom for business advantages. He doesn’t want to use population control methods to cull the unwanted masses.

    Think what you want about Trump. Disagree with him if you will. But to compare him to Biden in any way that implies a negative reflection on Trump is beyond obtuse.

      Yes, obtuse – simply obtuse!

    MSNBC is always shocked when confronted with truth. Let it go broke or put it on the Warren’s buffet of dinosaur fair. I’ll bet that would give Warren heartburn. lol

    • snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

      All too true; MSNBC is like a person who is confronted by the truth, and refuses to see it for what it is. They cannot handle it and their brains, such as they have, refuse to deal with the matter. I believe the term is called Denial.

    We see the cronic and growing desperation of the left; as a comparison of Biden with Trump is a complete farcical movement of the worse kind for them.

    Trump is a successful entrepenuer; and if I recall right, he actually lost a majority of his fortunes and rebuilt them. Has he made mistakes and miscalculations, yes. Has he gaffed, yes. Do I agree with all he stands for or says, no.

    But compared to Biden, the Donald is a AMERICAN SUCCESS.

    Also, as to the quip of a leader not being responsible for what his subordinants say or do; the answer to that is RIDICULOUS. THEY ARE RESPONSIBLE – the buck stops with the leadership in the chain of command. Biden is VP, so his actions are directly answerable to Obama, who lets him go for broke as a distraction and a decoy.

    Besides, Obama is descending into his narcissistic madness more and more with each passing day.

    Consider the comments Holder made recently of a ‘vast conspiracy’ to keep the youth, elderly, minority and disabled/etc, from voting. He would give no specifics to his audience, and most of the experts feel this is beign set up for the eventual loss of Obama in Nov.

    Quite to the contrary, its being set up to give Obama an excuse to crush the elections if he is to be removed from office; the game has been set and they are shaping the field. Holder is under Obama, and thus Obama has to answer for Holders actions, just as with Biden.

    The leadership is accountable, for in silence they give acknowledgement of their subordinants actions.

       I agree.  I happen to like Donald Trump.  That doesn’t mean that I have to agree with everything he says or does.

    Biden makes silly mistakes. Trump believes something completely absurd and continues to press with it. It’s not the same thing. Biden would be more like Palin since we’re familiar with the silly mistakes she’s made.

    The craziness will only become more apparent in the coming months.  What a farce.

    I often wonder how long that Gerbal in Bidens head can keep going on that wheel.

  • greywolfrs

    When god was passing out brains, Biden thought he said trains and said no thanks. This guy is dumber than Obamao, if that is possible.

           Yeah. It’s just rare… very rare to encounter an L.A. Kings fan anywhere. I was by proxy a moderate L.A. Kings fan for a while when Gretzky was there, as I was a very big fan of Gretzky. Of course, if they played the Rangers I’d cheer for the Rangers to cream the Kings.

            I have been a Kings fan since that trade, not because of number 99, though. It is all about number 33…

    I think Trump is 1,000 times better than Joe Biden.  Donald Trump gets pampered, Hollywood types to actually do some work.  Trump is a genius.  He gets paid to get Hollyweirdos to work.

  • new2la

    One has worked all his life=Trump
    The other has never worked a day in his life=Biden

    Obama chose Biden so he would take some attention off of himself and people would not notice what bad policies he is working on.

    Roberts is nothing more than a sworn leftist. He gets offended by the slightest reference against progressive ideals, just like all the elite democrats are. Just remember, they value themselves a being more enlightened than mere Americans, and keep convincing themselves all the time.

    You forget Biden is accomplishing his greatest job perfectly.  Life Insurance for the President.  No one on either side wants him for President.

    Joe Biden is the Court Jester in Obama’s Court.  Joe Biden was the chairman, for many years, of the Foreign Policy Committee in the Senate.  He was incorrect on every issue regarding foreign policy.  He is the one that thought that Iraq should be divided into three countries.  He is a joke and the only other jokes around are the people of Delaware who kept sending this guy to the Senate.
