President JOE BIDEN has a reputation for salty language behind closed doors. But it nearly slipped out in public during his speech at Valley Forge last month to mark the third anniversary of the Jan. 6 insurrection. Animated and angry, he derided DONALD TRUMP and his followers for drawing glee from political violence.

    “At his rally, he jokes about an intruder, whipped up by the Big Trump Lie, taking a hammer to Paul Pelosi’s skull,” Biden said.

    “And he thinks that’s funny,” the president continued. “He laughed about it. What a sick …”

    Biden let his voice trail off as the crowd cheered and chuckled.

    In private, he doesn’t stop short.

    The president has described Trump to longtime friends and close aides as a “sick fuck” who delights in others’ misfortunes, according to three people who have heard the president use the profane description. According to one of the people who has spoken with the president, Biden recently said of Trump: “What a fucking asshole the guy is.”

    Emphasis is mine.

    Biden is saying what we’re all thinking here.

    Also, being President, I would bet that Biden knows even more secrets about what Trump did during his presidency that aren’t public knowledge.

      I wish he’d talk like that more openly

        I agree. I like it when he displays this type of disgust with Trump. Makes him more relatable.

        But, I also kinda get why he doesn’t because I think he wants to portray himself as being a class act, whereas Trump is, well, clearly not.

          Obama was able to sell that image better than Biden ever could in a much longer career. I’d settle for a “straight talking old man Scranton” though
