As Joe Biden kicks off his eight day campaign tour in Iowa, many are calling his “No Malarkey” bus tour more of a struggle bus. On Saturday, Biden categorized himself as the only Democrat candidate that can beat President Trump in the 2020 election. He went on to attack President Trump by saying he is full of lies.
“It’s time to get up and remember who we are,” stated the former vice president. “This is the United States of America, there’s nothing were unable to do if we unite the country.”
Conservatives see Biden’s remarks on the president as hypocritical because Biden and his son Hunter continue to face allegations of corruption over their shady ties to Ukraine. Biden himself was under fire for not being honest after he backtracked on claims he had no idea Hunter was on the board of Ukrainian oil company Burisma Holdings.
Furthering the irony beyond his critique of President Trump’s character was Biden’s Iowa campaign tour slogan “No Malarkey.” The slogan was meant to stress that his campaign is about honesty. However, many have noted that he has had a difficult time keeping his facts straight as time and time again he’s made absurd rhetorical comments and several verbal gaffes.
