Former Vice President Joe Biden took aim at President Donald Trump on Tuesday, claiming his actions following Sen. John McCain’s passing were “almost un-American.”
Appearing before the Penn Biden Leaders Dialogue at the University of Pennsylvania, Biden suggested the current administration’s response to McCain’s death was uncharacteristic of American values and will have longlasting effects on the nation’s political discourse.
Biden said at the University of Pennsylvania:
I think you’re going to see a significant change in the politics of the country, and I think lot of it had to do with the way in which the administration has treated people. I think the nail that maybe have put in the coffin this time was the way in which the administration responded to John McCain’s death, and the way it came across as being so nakedly… almost un-American. It was just raw. It wasn’t —it’s not who we are.
The Establishment was up in arms after President Trump marked McCain’s passing with a sole tweet, which read: “My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain. Our hearts and prayers are with you!”
My deepest sympathies and respect go out to the family of Senator John McCain. Our hearts and prayers are with you!
