Joe Biden is leading the Democratic field for president.
But he may never get a chance to face off against President Trump.
And it’s all because Biden never wanted this decade-old video to resurface.
Joe Biden launched his presidential campaign earlier this year and almost immediately skyrocketed to the top of the primary field.
Out of over 20 different Democratic candidates in the race, Biden leads nearly every poll and appears poised to dominate the upcoming primary.
But while Biden plans out his strategy to face President Donald Trump in the general election, he may never get the chance to square off against Trump.
And it’s all because of a decade-old video that Biden had hoped would never resurface.
The Daily Caller reports, “Democratic 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden argued more than a decade ago against amnesty for illegal immigrants and maintained that anyone who migrates to the United States should learn English.”
“The former vice president’s comments came 13 years ago, when he was in the Senate arguing for the Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act, otherwise known as the ‘McCain-Kennedy Bill.’ An immigration reform bill introduced the previous year by then-Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Ted Kennedy and Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain, the proposed legislation never reached a vote,” adds the Daily Caller.
Biden is nothing short of a massive hypocrite.
He used to oppose illegal immigration and supported enforcing America’s immigration laws when he thought it was politically convenient to do so.
And he’s now flipped on all of this because again, he found it politically convenient to do so.
Democrats who are eager to take a shot at Biden as he leads the primary field will attack him from the left, arguing that he’s not an ally of the Democratic base, which increasingly demands nothing short of open borders and an endless flood of illegal immigrants into the country.
And Republicans will use the video in the general election, if Biden manages to get that far, to show the American people that Biden is a two-faced hypocrite who flip flops on the issues based on where he thinks the political winds are blowing.
Biden wins no additional supporters and only alienates voters on both sides of the political spectrum thanks to this video.
And his odds of winning the Democratic nominee, and of defeating President Trump, just took a major hit.
“The Democratic position also recognizes you’ve got 11 million illegal aliens here,” Biden told MSNBC host Chris Matthews in the video.
“They have to have a way to earn their way into the deal. This isn’t amnesty. They’re required to take 11 years work. They’ve gotta pay a fine. They’ve got to learn to speak English. They’ve got to pass testing…”
Biden’s career just took a massive hit now.
And it’s all because of one video, which has opened up a gold mine of opposition research against him for both Democrats and Republicans.
