Biden Loses His Cool After Trump Gets Under His Skin Less Than 30 Minutes Into Debate


President Joe Biden lost his cool during Thursday’s debate, calling former President Donald Trump a “sucker” and a “loser.”

Biden had raised the issue of a 2020 story in The Atlantic, which several Trump administration officials have refuted, that during a trip to France in 2018 Trump skipped a visit to a military cemetery saying it’s “filled with suckers and losers.”

Trump said at the time the reason he did not go was because the weather would not allow his helicopter to fly to Aisne-Marne American Cemetery, near Paris.

Further, he did not want to go by road because of the logistical challenge of using a presidential motorcade, particularly in a foreign country.

Trump visited a different cemetery the next day, honoring American war dead, the Associated Press reported at the time.

Biden raised the issue at the debate saying, “My son was not a loser was not a sucker, you’re the sucker. You’re the loser.”

“First of all, that was a made up quote,” Trump responded. “Suckers and losers. They made it up. It was in a third rate magazine, that’s failing like many of these magazines.”

“He made that up. He put it in commercials. We’ve notified him,” the 45th president continued.

Will this debate help Trump’s election chances?

“We had 19 people that said I didn’t say it,” Trump stated. “I’m so glad this came up, and he brought it up. There’s nobody that’s taken better care of our soldiers than I have. To think that I would in front of generals and other say ‘suckers’ and ‘losers.'”

Trump then argued the story was fabricated like the 2016 allegation his campaign had colluded with Russia, and the 51 intelligence agents in 2020 who said that first son Hunter Biden’s laptop story was likely Russian disinformation.

Biden’s son Beau Biden was a member of the Delaware National Guard, serving as a Judge Advocate General officer.

In 2008, he deployed to Iraq for a year.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


“We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” Those 12 words have been stuck in my head since I first read them. 


Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn recently made that comment to Floyd Brown, founder of The Western Journal. 


And if the leftists and the elites get their way, that’s exactly what will happen — no real election, no real choice for the Electoral College, and no real say for the American people. 


The Western Journal is fighting to keep that from happening, but we can’t do it alone.


We work tirelessly to expose the lying leftist media and the corrupt America-hating elites.


But Big Tech’s stranglehold is now so tight that without help from you, we will not be able to continue the fight. 


The 2024 election is literally the most important election for every living American. We have to unite and fight for our country, otherwise we will lose it. And if we lose the America we love in 2024, we’ll lose it for good. Can we count on you to help? 


With you we will be able to field journalists, do more investigative work, expose more corruption, and get desperately needed truth to millions of Americans. 


We can do this only with your help. Please don’t wait one minute. Donate right now.


Thank you for reading,

Josh Manning
