“He is just trashing American values the way he talks about people, the way he makes fun of people, the way he denigrates folks,” The New York Times reports Biden as telling a rally in Owingsville, Kentucky, as he stumped for Democratic House candidate Amy McGrath — challenger to GOP Rep. Andy Barr.
Biden then explained what he believed was the “method” behind Trump’s “madness” — to get people riled up and “down in the mosh pit with him.”
Democrats “can’t possibly” win the presidency “unless we can begin to reclaim those white working-class voters that used to vote for us,” former President Barack Obama’s Veep later told the Times.
However, he said Trump’s “value set” was “much too narrow and self-serving” because it relied on appealing to “legitimate frustrations of a lot of working-class people by finding a scapegoat.”
“I look out there, and I just don’t know how much more grievance can be appealed to by this guy to keep a majority,” he added.
