As a conservative political junkie, I’ve long been fond of the tried-and-true statement, “The hypocrisy of the Left knows no bounds.”
With that truism in mind, Daily Caller News Foundation’s Matt Miller had a brilliant idea: what would happen if he wandered around a D.C. park and read racist Joe Biden quotes to liberals, but attributed the quotes to Donald Trump? Then what would happen when he revealed the quotes were actually from Biden?
Answer: Exactly what one (conservative) might imagine would happen:
The Trump-Hater Two-Step. Bigly.
So off to the Meridian Square Park Miller went.
“I asked people what they thought about racist Trump quotes. But when I told them they were all actually Biden quotes they changed their tune. Is there anything Biden could say or do that would lose these peoples’ vote?”

I got this. No, Matt, there’s nothing Biden could say or do that would lose the votes of these people — along with tens of millions of other Trump haters across America.
Anyway, as Miller approached random people, he introduced himself by saying, “We’re reading racist Donald Trump quotes; we’re trying to get people’s reaction,” to which one young lady immediately replied “Oh no,” and laughed, apparently fully “aware” of Trump’s “racism.”
Miller then read a “Trump quote.”
“Unless we do something about this, my children are gonna grow up in a jungle; the jungle being a racial jungle, with tensions having built up so high that it’s going to explode at some point.”
The young lady responded:
“I mean that’s kind of what’s happening now, right, because we’re trying to address the root issues of the racial tension, yet he doesn’t want to support it, so I don’t really know what he’s suggesting by that tweet.”
Next up, Miller read the following Biden quote to another unknowing dupe, again attributing it to Trump:
“Poor kids are just as bright as white kids.”
The predictable response:
“I think that’s a poor assumption that wealthier kids are white, and he’s an idiot.”
Next up from Miller, another quote.
“So speaking about President Obama, he said, “Obama is the first mainstream African-American who is articulate, bright, and clean.”
And again, a predictable response:
“It’s so racist, and ignorant in every way.”
And setting the table with “So do you think that somebody with these kinds of attitudes, that says this kind of stuff should be a leader? Should be our president?”, “Absolutely not,” came the response, along with additional condemnation of Trump.
Then the big reveal:
“What if I told you that these were Biden quotes, would that change your point of view? Your reaction?”
After nervous surprised laughter, one foot-in-mouth liberal said:
“Joe Biden is problematic as hell. We all know that he’s not had a great past, and I don’t believe has a great presence, but he is the option that we need, uh, um, to get out of the hole that we’re in.”
Other surprised reactions were just as asinine.
The sad reality is, these people would vote for a blind, mentally-impaired squirrel looking for an acorn over Donald Trump; their votes will be not-Trump votes, not Biden votes.
