Listen: Joe Biden, President Trump, Donald Trump discussed on The Erick Erickson Show
"Five zero or one eight hundred WSB talk. We'll move on to the other news with this just hit the wire few minutes ago. During commercial break as a matter of fact, this came out from the New York Times, Joe Biden said he did not view abortion, as a choice and a write in two thousand six he viewed it as a tragedy. It's a newly unearthed video from two thousand six Joe Biden, saying he supported Roe versus Wade. But did not have you abortion as quote a choice at a right remarks that raise further questions about how us abortion rights as he runs for the democratic presidential nomination and faces pressure over his position on the issue, quote, I do not view abortion, as a choice at right? I think it's always a tragedy. He said this in an interview with Texas monthly resurfaced by CNN. Joe Biden, says, I think it should be rare and safe I think we should be focusing on how to limit the number of abortions. He said, he's a little bit of an odd man out of my own party, because he wouldn't vote for federal financing of abortions had voted to limit late term abortions. But supported Roe versus Wade. You know, I'm so tired of the abortion story because there's so much other stuff to talk about. But it's all consuming right now largely because of the democratic primary, it has become a litmus test for the Democrats. Yeah. You know what's interesting here we don't even have to focus on abortion per se as to how the media covers these issues. It's always a litmus test with Republicans on pro-lifers and the media never uses that language with the Democrats, but yet here we have Democrats who are attacking Joe Biden for not being sufficiently committed to killing children. Someone earlier a listener who hate listens, apparently on social media said that the reason I had decided to support the president in twenty twenty is because my master's at WSB told me to, and, you know, I suspect there are a lot of people who think that, that my masters at WSB told me to eat, as a matter of fact, they were aid, deeply worried around here. I was habitat my career by not supporting the president twenty sixteen. I worked out great ratings wise and everything else being my own person telling you what I think, you know, the, the primary reason I'm supporting Donald Trump for reelection and twenty twenty is because the other side is full of a bunch of people who want to kill babies and impose socialism on the United States, and also persecute Christians while they're at it. That's why I'm supporting Donald Trump for reelection. Look at Joe Biden, the former vice president United States for Barack Hussein Obama. The first black president of the United States, a man, the Democrats have cheered on forever is being attacked for. Not being sufficiently committed to the cause of killing children, and I don't wanna dance around this issue. Do you know what they do? Do you know how an abortion is performed? Don't say it's not killing a human being. And they're attacking, Joe Biden, for not being sufficiently committed to the cause this is Lord of the flies territory of the democratic primary. It's disgusting. That's why I'm voting for Donald Trump into any twenty in twenty sixteen. He was a hypothetical. He was a democrat who had supported abortion rights, who even on the campaign trail as the Republican nominee for president was praising the good things Planned Parenthood. Does. Turns out he was more sufficiently committed to the causes that he was new to than I expected him to be surrounded himself with very good people in his very committed to the pro-life, 'cause and shutting down Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry in this country. And I am totally in favor of that. Meanwhile, the Democrats are exposing themselves as being gross and callous when it comes to killing children. They don't even want to admit that they're killing kids. They get defensive about it. You got the governor of Virginia talking about letting women give birth to children making the children comfortable, and then deciding whether or not to kill it or keep it alive. And you got the news media. Chris Cuomo at CNN and others denying that he said it when you can hear with your own ears. The media servants just gross propaganda outlet for the Democrats and other attacking, Joe Biden, for not being committed to the cause of killing kids enough, that's just perverted. I want to put all of this in a larger perspective for you, because I think you do this. Effective. I, I will scuttle all the things I wanted to talk about to talk about this big breaking news item. Joe Biden in an undercover tape from two thousand six said that he didn't view abortion, as a right. He viewed it as a tragedy and that he was okay with restricting late term abortions, etc. He support Roe v. Wade. Here's the larger perspective on this. Joe Biden's probably going to be the democratic nominee. He's not guaranteed to be the democratic nominee. But we're we're all talking small ball here. The media. Oftentimes gets caught in day to day campaign. Narration hit jobs, CNN, probably did not undercover this video of, of Joe Biden. There were probably referred to it by another one of the camps. And it's one of the other camps that thinks that they need to rally progressives against Joe Biden in need to consolidate their position or at least keep Joe Biden from consolidating the position. But the reality is, if you actually pull democratic voters, they want a winner. And they view Joe Biden as that winner. When he was an undeclared candidate for president of the United States. Joe Biden was commanding twenty five to thirty percent of the democratic primary. Joe Biden is a declared candidate for president now and he's getting thirty to forty percent of the democratic vote right now, Elizabeth Warren has gone up Pete Buttigieg, has gone up. Bernie Sanders is going down, Kamala Harris is going down. Kristen gillibrand is just going to town as an idiot. I mean she has become the village idiot of the Democratic Party better. Will roar has gone Emo. I mean these people aren't getting traction. This is a race Sanders, only because of name I d but Elizabeth Warren Pete, but it just Joe Biden. This is the race. The others are has bins or also rods. Former presidential candidates already Elizabeth Warren has gaining some traction as the progressive alternative to Joe Biden, what we're seeing is that progressives are gravitating to her as she gets more outlandish against the president and is willing to take on Joe Biden for not being sufficiently committed to the cause of murdering. Children, but she still a wildcard and frankly, she still obnoxious personality. And a lot of Democrats, don't personally, like her folks. She's not liked by voters in Massachusetts. Charlie Baker, the Republican governor massive -chusetts beats her in some head to head, pulling for the Senate. So Joe Biden is the nominee barring an unforeseen circumstance barring a massive upheaval of the progressive vote, but by and large the people who are going to vote in the democratic primary are older black, women older, black women are going to make the difference in the democratic primary, as they have in every other democratic primary, and you know, who older black women, like they like Joe Biden, you know why they like Joe Biden. They like him because he was Barack Obama's vice president, and they like him because he seen as a grownup in the room, and they want some stability in their lives and the lives of their kids. So they like Joe Biden. That's why Biden, probably going to be in all of this other stuff is, is just, it's the day to day routine that the media depends on clicks, the media depends on circumstances and these campaigns. Depend on pushing out their opposition research, you gotta keep your eye on the pricier. That's why the President Donald Trump is so focused on Joe Biden, and so much of his opposition research is focused on Joe Biden, and so much of the president's tweets about the day. Democrats is focused on Joe Biden, because the president sees where this is headed that you'll Biden is probably going to be the nominee. So you gotta go out there and defining best. You can he's hard to define because ninety eight percent of Americans already know who the man is most of them liking, even if they disagree with him on politics, even among Republicans, who will vote for Donald Trump, a significant portion actually, like Joe Biden, they just won't vote for him because they disagree with him on issues. So the Democrats have to do you've got two thousand candidates running only one or two of them can challenge. The president can challenge Joe Biden, they've got to consolidate than what they I have to do a show that Joe Biden is not sufficiently committed to monstrosity monstrous, atrocities, like killing kids, and then one of them Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, one of them has to come out and say, you know what? I'll kill the kids for you. I will out kill the kids, that all the other Democrats will kill and try to convince progresses that they're more murderous than Joe Biden, so progresses will go out and vote for them. That's. Where we are in this campaign right now all the other candidates have to show that they are more willing to kill more kids than Joe Biden is, and try to get progressives to rally round them. There's a problem, though, the Democrats have become so invested in diversity, and intersection -ality. Are they really going to give it to a white guy just because he's gay or a white woman who pretended to be a native American who really wasn't? We've had all these more diverse candidates out there. That's going to cause the progressives problems. Trying to beat Joe Biden. If you're carrying revolving debt that means you're."
