Trevor Noah: Joe Biden has ‘enough baggage to fill an Amtrak car’
The Daily Show host unpacked the former vice-president’s gaffes, old and new, after he launched his 2020 run
Joe Biden announced his campaign for president yesterday, joining a crowded Democratic field as an immediate frontrunner. And it’s not surprising that the former vice-president already has a well of popular support, at least in early polls, said Trevor Noah on Thursday’s Daily Show. “People don’t just love Joe Biden because he’s a down-to-earth, everyday man; people love him because he’s an adorable goofball. In fact, the only thing that spends more time in Biden’s mouth than those perfect teeth is his own foot.”
Noah turned a reel of clips featuring Biden’s signature gaffes. He touted “a three-letter word: jobs, jobs, jobs”. He talked about someone’s mother resting in peace when she was still alive. He encouraged a wheelchair-bound man to stand for a crowd.
