‘Stable Genius’ Gets Torched Online After Attacking Joe Biden As ‘Low IQ’
The internet went on overdrive on Monday after President Trump called Joe Biden a “low I.Q. individual,” seizing on a slip of the tongue from the former Vice President, who nearly announced he was running for president in 2020.
“Joe Biden got tongue tied over the weekend when he was unable to properly deliver a very simple line about his decision to run for President,” Trump tweeted. “Get used to it, another low I.Q. individual!”
The president has previously used the “low I.Q.” line of attack against a number of critics, including MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) and actor Robert De Niro.
Biden over the weekend told a gathering of Delaware Democrats that he has “the most progressive record of anybody running for the … anybody who would run” for the 2020 nomination.
Attendees began applauding as Biden repeated the phrase, “Of anybody who would run.”
Biden has long been mulling a presidential campaign for 2020 and is considered a near certainty to jump in the race.
The former vice president has been an ardent critic of the president, and caused a stir last year when he said he would have “beat the hell out of” Trump in high school over his degrading comments about women.
Biden has typically hovered at or near the top of polling among Democrats on their preferred 2020 candidate.
A poll released earlier this month showed Biden was the top choice among likely Iowa Democratic caucus participants, garnering 27 percent of the vote. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) was the first choice of 25 percent of those surveyed.
Should Biden officially announce his candidacy, he would join an increasingly crowded field of presidential hopefuls.
Beto O’Rourke, the former Texas congressman, entered the race last week, joining Sanders, Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Cory Booker, among others.
Trump has previously welcomed the idea of facing off against the former vice president, calling him a “dream opponent.”

The man who threatened his schools if they release his transcripts is calling another man, who has served this nation for 40+ years "Low IQ".

Here is an idea, how about all candidates in 2020 release their HS and College grades?

Well, if getting tongue-tied is a reflection of I.Q…. pic.twitter.com/noCqGazYXx

Half your tweets sound like your dementia is worse than many world-class experts believe. You gave a rambling mess of a 2-hour speech at CPAC. Not one sentence — two full hours of tongue-tied rants. If your IQ was any lower you would be classified as an inanimate object.

I have a mind to involuntarily place you in a psychiatric hospital for evaluation. I would also petition for you to undergo a real, independent, comprehensive medical evaluation that includes brain scans.
