Vice President Joe Biden during a campaign stop in Charlotte, N.C., yesterday said that the last four years have been particularly rough for the middle class, TheBlaze reported yesterday.
"This is deadly earnest, man. This is deadly earnest," said Biden.
"How [Republicans] can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years? How in Lord's name can they justify raising their taxes with these tax cuts," he added.
Of course, seeing as how Vice President Biden and President Barack Obama have been in control for the last four years (with a supermajority for the first two!), one can see how this remark came off as a bit "tone deaf."
And after airing Biden's latest misstep, MSNBC's Joe Scarborough (who seems to be genuinely enjoying this presidential election) just couldn't contain himself:
"I love him!" Scarborough said after he caught his breath. "Has anybody not told him they've been in the White House the last four years?"
