[Ed. – Biden believes God’s plan for him is to engage in petty baseless attacks on political opponents?]
Former Vice President Joe Biden is asking for God’s forgiveness for not speaking up against President Donald Trump sooner as his wife Jill reassured the audience at a posh human rights fundraising dinner the couple wants to ‘pick a fight’ against bullies.
‘Barack and I agreed to remain silent for a while to give this administration the chance to get up and running in the first year,’ Biden told the crowd at the Human Rights Campaign annual fundraising gala in Washington D.C. on Saturday night.
‘God forgive me,’ he added, making the sign of the cross as the audience roared with laughter and applause.
The last time Biden spoke to this dinner was three years ago – in 2015 – as he was contemplating entering the 2016 presidential contest. He ultimately held back in the wake of his son Beau’s death.
But Beau featured heavily in his remarks to the crowd, as he weighs a challenge to Trump in 2020. He thanked the group for honoring Beau for his work as attorney general as Delaware.
And his wife Jill Biden, who introduced, talked of how the couple wants to take on bullies.
