Donald Trump Jr. took to Twitter Tuesday to question Joe Biden’s mental health after the former vice president engaged in a heated debate with a construction worker at a soon-to-be Fiat Chrysler plant in Detroit.
Biden has made gaffes that prompted debate about his mental acuity. President Trump told a Fox News town hall that there seemed to be “something going on” with Biden.
The viral video emerged on Tuesday that showed Biden confronting a worker who said the 2020 hopeful is “actively trying to end our Second Amendment right and take away our guns.”
Biden responded by telling the worker he was “full of s***.”
“I support the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment — just like right now, if you yelled ‘fire,’ that’s not free speech,” Biden said. “And from the very beginning — I have a shotgun, I have a 20-gauge, a 12-gauge. My sons hunt. Guess what? You’re not allowed to own any weapon. I’m not taking your gun away at all.”
Trump Jr. reposted the video from a CBS News reporter and quoted the Alzheimer’s Association webpage that “aggressive or angry behaviors may occur in people with Alzheimer’s or other dementias.”
“A 50 year career politician doesn’t snap back this way to a blue collar guy asking him a reasonable question given his parties (sp) stance on the issue,” Trump Jr. tweeted.
The CBS News report pointed out that this is not the first time Biden had choice words for a potential voter. In December, he snapped back at someone who questioned his son, Hunter Biden, and the relationship with Ukraine.
“You’re a damn liar, man,” Biden said.
Rep. Louie Gohmert, the Texas Republican, on Tuesday, told the “Todd Starnes Radio Show” that Biden may have hurt his campaign with the interaction.
“That’s not exactly the way to make friends and influence people,” Gohmert said, referring to Dale Carnegie’s classic, “How to Win Friends and Influence People.”
Starnes said Biden’s decision to publicly accept Beto O’Rourke’s endorsement could lend to the speculation that gun rights could be under attack under a Biden White House.
O’Rourke, while a candidate for president, said, “hell, yes we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.” O’Rourke made the comment after a rampage inside an El Paso Walmart left 22 dead.
