What does that term mean to you anyway? Or is it just a throw away line for you, like a curse word to try and demean anyone you perceive as a disagreeing with your political views??

Biden targets people like you, because he knows you will faithfully disparage people for him, and continue shredding our society, with this destructive "us versus them" mentality.

To the Left, a Trump supporter is anyone who doesn't parrot Left Wing talking points and doesn't believe that Trump is literally Hitler.

Trump supporters need to hear this more than anyone. They think we've seen a cultural shift in this country and most people are suddenly on the side of the racists, xenophobes, homophobes, and theocrats with a common goal of a 1950s utopia. That couldn't be farther from the truth.

He's the best?

Please, please let him run.

Now Joe Biden is doubling down . Such a desperate guy .

During a speech this weekend – for the Human Rights Campaign of all things – he referred to Trump supporters as the dregs of society. That’s a step below deplorables, isn’t it?

He also told the crowd of LBGT supporters that they have a fight ahead of them, point out it’s those against them who have a friend in the Trump.

I was just thinking as I read the title that good god why would he say that. Hilary took a vicious beatin over that comment as she should have, in my opinion. I didn't even vote for Trump but to make a statement like that was just factually incorrect, let alone rude and flat out politically stupid as all get out. LOL.

I saw a clip of Biden talking about why he thinks Clinton lost and in this brief clip he nailed it pretty good actually. This was a good while back. This one clip I'm talking about, not maybe everything else he's might have said. He actually had a moment of rationality in that clip.

For him to now start up with this nonsense is silly. I'm sure he's just playing to the far left and trying to stay relevant.

Yes, so irrelevant, that the Trump supporters just might reelect him for President.
It was this type of thinking from those on the left that got President Trump elected in the first place.
Thank you.....to quote another poster...carry on.

You can cherry-pick any segment of society and try to characterize it anyway you want ....doesn't really mean anything.

How many people came out to vote for Obama for no other reason than he's black?
Not many. Most people voted for him because he and Biden were the better choices. McCain was screwed over by Palin. He had a chance at winning if not for her.

Okay, let's have a little test, shall we? So tell me, which Trump supporters do you and Biden believe are not "dredges," or fit into the "basket of horribles?"
To the bolded. That is all in your head and nobody else's. You took a backdoor way to rationalize the fact that right wingers will SAY that all Biden said "all".

Biden said "virulent", so I would assume that he meant the usual suspects. Sort of the right's equivalent of Antifa.

Which is why you don't have a point. Are you guys able to tell the difference between Antifa kooks and the rest of the "leftists"? If you can, I think it's fair to say the "leftists" can tell the difference between you and the extremists on the right. But instead you are just as likely to that ALL "leftists" support Antifa, but that YOU don't support the so called deplorables.

Insinuating that blacks can't get through life without the help of the democrats and liberals sounds really racist to me.

Plenty of white guilt Libs voted for him just because he was black too.

And do you deny that a lot of young, first time voters of all races probably cast their ballots for him without a clue about the details of his platform for no other reason than they wanted to elect the first black president?
FatBob96, where did I say that all the people who voted for Obama because he was black? I did say that Democrats, especially liberals, run around acting as if it weren't for them you couldn't get through life without them... translation, they feel you don't have what it takes so you need gov't to help you, I know better, how about you? To say you can't get through life without them is offensive and racist.

This is the guy that said about Trump.

“If we were in high school, I’d take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.”

Literally the definition of a bully .
Why???? If you seriously don't know, than you don't know Trump.

He smears people who disagree with him or who he perceives have slighted him.
He threatens people over petty things as well as major issues.
He calls people names--nasty, crude, uncivil names.
He posts private cell phone numbers on the internet.
He blames others for everything he does and every mistake he makes.
He makes up derogatory lies about people and repeatedly practices character assassination.
He bashes people he has power over and over. (see Jeff Sessions)(see abuse of power)
He makes baseless claims about those who disagree with him.
He ABUSES the office of president. It is called Abuse of Power.
He makes accusations with no merit against those who disagree with him or his opponents.
He pushed an international head of state physically out of the way in order to be front and center in a photo.
He is an insecure frightened petty little man who is always in great need of feeling superior to others though he never will be. That is what bullies usually are.

And this RWNJ smear job of Joe Biden? Could it have something to do with the fact that Biden beats Trump in poll match-ups? Donny doesn't like it when he loses, because deep down, he believes he is a loser.

And some of them are. They certainly are. Trump has Supremacists, NAZIs, Birthers, criminals and traitors behind him.

Not all Trump supporters are like that, but I defy you to assert that those people are not also supporting him, and Trump encourages them.
