Former Vice President Joe Biden has been sliding in the polls — and it’s because he can’t stop making controversial comments that aren’t sitting well with voters.
In an apparent sign of weakness and desperation, Biden made what appears to be a threatening comment towards President Donald Trump.
While speaking in Des Moines, Iowa, this week, the former VP began by calling Trump a paper tiger who folds when challenged by China.
Then, Biden spoke about making Trump “feel the pain,” which suggests violence against the president of the United States.
“He thinks he’s being tough. Well, like everything else, he’s always tough when he’s not the guy getting hit; he’s always tough when someone else is feeling the pain, and he’s not. But we’re going to make him feel the pain,” Biden said.
Biden then claimed Trump doesn’t understand the middle class or how to handle a trade war with China.

Nice going, Joe.
Threatening the president of the United States is a felony.
But more importantly, this is not the first time Biden has threatened physical violence against Trump.
During an interview last month CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Biden compared Trump to a bully and said he wanted to “smack” him in the mouth.
“Sure it worries me, in the sense that I’m looking forward to this, man. You walk behind me in a debate, come here, man. Don’t you think — you know me too well. The idea that I’d be intimidated by Donald Trump? He’s the bully that I knew my whole life,” Biden stated.
“He’s the bully that I’ve always stood up to. He’s the bully that used to make fun when I was a kid that I stutter, and I’d smack them in the mouth,” the former vice president added.
Biden continued, “But I think the American people want a president who has some dignity, who has a value set, who is actually trying to restore the soul of this country so when they turn on the television they look up and their kids say, ‘I want to be like that guy or that woman.’”
Joe Biden says he's looking forward to a chance to "slap @realDonaldTrump in the mouth" during a presidential debate.

In March 2018, Biden said that if someone made comments similar to the ones that Trump made in the Access Hollywood tape, he would “beat the hell out of him” if they were in high school.
In October 2016, Biden threatened to take then-candidate Trump behind the gym and rough him up.
Biden said it was “a disgusting assertion for Trump to make” in the lewd tape that he could “do things” to women that other people couldn’t just because he is “a billionaire.”
The vice president has called it “a textbook version of sexual assault” and critiqued Trump’s abuse of power publicly.
“The press always asks me, don’t I wish I were debating him? No, I wish we were in high school, and I could take him behind the gym. That’s what I wish,” Biden said at Wilkes University in P.A.
When he’s not suggesting a “shooting war” with the GOP or threatening Trump with violence, Biden has been accused by at least four women in recent months of inappropriately touching them without their consent.
Biden’s behavior is so bad that even the mainstream media criticized him after he disgustingly had his hands all over a 10-year-old girl during a campaign stop.
Despite all of this, Biden is still the Democratic frontrunner and darling of the Left.
