Just Try to Watch Joe Biden Lecture Elizabeth Warren Without Screaming

Joe Biden was largely an afterthought during Tuesday night’s Democratic debate, but when he did get the mic, it sucked. Like halfway through the debate when Elizabeth Warren talked about creating the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the former vice president responded by lecturing her and attempting to take credit for her work.

“All the Washington insiders and strategic geniuses said ‘Don’t even try, because you’ll never get it passed,’” Warren said. “And sure enough, the big banks fought us, the Republicans fought us, some of the Democrats fought us. But we got that agency passed into law. It has now forced big banks to return more than $12 billion directly to people they cheated.”

She went on to say: “You want to get something done in America? We have to get out and fight for the things that touch people’s lives.”

Then Biden flew into what can only be described as a rage of the most manly proportions:

“I went on the floor and got you votes!” Biden yelled. “I got votes for that bill! I convinced people to vote for it, so let’s get those things straight too!”

Warren replied, slowly, “I am deeply grateful to President Obama who fought so hard to make sure that agency was passed into law.”

Welp!

This exchange was probably her strongest moment of the night. Like, she wasn’t even really disagreeing with him, and somehow he felt wounded and like she owed him something, and started talking all out of neck and shit, and her face is all like “Bitch, I cant hear you; I’m standing right next to you.” and she’s just like “Okay, thank you.” lol

BTW, I nearly fainted when they got to the Ellen question. Like, I don’t watch CNN so this is the only time I get to see them. And I see they are as terrible as ever. Like, what in the actual fuck with that question? There is a guy two steps from being a dictator and the media is still searching for warm-and-fuzzy bipartisanship? Like, STOP. Stop this bullshit, NOW.
