Sanders Decimates Biden In D.C. Debate
Biden has been making way more gaffes than can be forgiven as simple slips of the tongue, there is clearly something amiss with the presidential candidate. But that's not stopping Dems from rallying behind the bumbling Dem. Sanders and Biden took to debate in D.C. and Sanders mopped the floor with Biden, repeatedly catching him in lies.
"...Bernie Sanders repeatedly attacked Joe Biden’s lengthy record and spurned the presidential primary front-runner’s attempts to win over him and his base by adopting liberal platforms.
Biden bristled at Sanders’ transparent attempts to use the coronavirus pandemic to renew his call for “Medicare-for-all,” saying: “People are looking for results, not a revolution.” But the Vermont senator was notably more aggressive, hitting his rival in their first one-on-one debate over everything from super PAC support to his history on Social Security.
At one point, Sanders urged viewers to "go to the YouTube" to review evidence of Biden calling for cuts to Social Security on the Senate floor. That prompted one of the debate's most contentious moments, as Sanders pinned down Biden aggressively -- with Biden eventually acknowledging under pressure that various cuts were "on the table" as part of congressional negotiations, but that he "never voted" specifically to slash Social Security.
"We did not cut it!" Biden exclaimed during the exchange, hammering his lectern.
"I know, because people like me helped stop that!" Sanders retorted. "You're an honest guy, why don't you just tell the truth here?"

Bernie Sanders held Joe Biden's feet to the fire on Social Security, which his campaign has long hoped to use against Biden, says editor @politicocharlie.

"In another heated moment, Sanders pressed Biden on accepting money from super PACs: "Why don't you get rid of your super PAC that you have right now which is running very ugly negative ads against me?" he asked.
Biden then laughed, prompting Sanders to respond, "Don't laugh, Joe, that's just the truth."
The former vice president retorted that Sanders should get rid of the "nine" super PACs he has, and offered to list those super PACs.
When Sanders called that bluff and urged Biden to "list" the supposed super PACs, Biden refused and simply told Sanders to "come on, man."
Watch The Clip Below.
Bernie: Why don't you get rid of your Super PAC which is running negative ads against me?
Bernie: Don't laugh, Joe.
Biden: Why don't you get rid of the 9 super PACs you have? Want me to list them?
Bernie: Yeah, list them.

Biden doesn't stand a chance against Trump. I don't see how Dems voted for him in the primary, he can't even win in a debate against Sanders, how is he supposed to stand up against Trump?
