Biden says 'I absolutely agree' with woman who called Trump an 'illegitimate president'


But they say Republicans are undermining democracy?

Former Vice President Joe Biden agreed with a woman who called President Trump and "illegitimate president" during a campaign stop in New Hampshire on Tuesday, according to Mediaite.

The woman started her rant by announcing that she suffers from "Trump Derangement Syndrome" before launching into comments about the president and Russia.

"He won the election by 70,000 votes in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan, he won it because he had help by the Russians, he refuses to do anything to stop that, he's failing in carrying out the most basic function to uphold the Constitution, he is not defending our national security, he has no interest in doing it, I don't want to live in a country run by Vladimir Putin, I don't think anybody in the country should want that, I don't understand why millions of people don't get that message, and I think every candidate needs to pound that message home again and again and again."

"He is an illegitimate president in my mind. That's it. I think all the talk about impeachment and what the Democrats should do, that's fine, it's theoretical at this point. Let them investigate, let them subpoena, let them go to the Supreme Court, he's illegitimate. and my biggest fear is that he's going to do it again with the help of Vlad, his best pal, and we're going to be stuck for six more years of this guy. And that is terrifying. It's terrifying."

After two years of special counsel Robert Mueller investigating potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia turned up no wrongdoing, one might hope an allegedly reasonable Democratic politician would downplay such conspiratorial rhetoric from a voter.

Biden, however, took a different path.

"Would you be my vice presidential candidate?" Biden joked. "Folks, look, I absolutely agree."

Biden went on to criticize recently opened investigations into the origins of the Russia probe.

"You're absolutely right, and now that they have an investigation of the investigators who are investigating whether or not Vladimir Putin and the Russians engaged in trying to affect our elections, give me a break. Gosh almighty," Biden said.

The exchange begins at about the 18 minute mark of the below video:
