Barnicle Asks Sharpton: Worry About Your ‘Friend’ Biden, Because Job’s So Difficult?

Political News

Mike Barnicle Al Sharpton MSNBC Morning Joe 5-30-22Finally, something we can agree with Mike Barnicle about! Like Mike, millions of us are worried that Joe Biden isn’t up to the job!

On Monday’s Morning Joe, Barnicle asked Al Sharpton whether he was “worried” about his “friend” Joe Biden because the presidency is ”enormously difficult.”

But Barnicle wasn’t suggesting he was losing speed and altitude. It was another round of gushing over how much Biden can sympathize with victims of tragedies. It seems Biden can’t go anywhere tragic without Biden and his media enablers rushing back to remember his son Beau Biden dying of brain cancer.

“Today is the seventh anniversary of the death of Beau Biden, his son. He will be going to Mass again today to sit and pray and think about his son and about the nation that he’s governing,” oozed Barnicle. “Do you worry at all about him? The presidency is an enormously, enormously difficult job.”

This put Sharpton in a tough spot. He obviously couldn’t agree that he was worried that Biden can’t handle the presidency. That would be admitting what an objective observer already senses. So he spun a yarn about how Biden is using his own pain to assuage the pain of others, blah, blah, blah.

At one point, Sharpton broke out this spiel:

“I sensed in talking to him last Wednesday at the White House a real anger at those that cheapen the lives of people, when he thinks about Beau, when he thinks about the losses he’s had. And he can’t do anything about his son, but he can do something about other sons and daughters. And I sense a determination by him, that he is going to do that.”

So is Biden angry at people like Joe Scarborough, who “cheapen the lives of people” by calling a baby in the womb a mere “being” who is not “actually alive?” Sadly, not. Biden has gone from claiming to be pro-life to throwing in with the pro-abortion extremists.

Democrats, if you believe that Ol’ Joe is up to the “enormously difficult” job, go ahead and renominate him in 2024 — and let’s see how that works out.

Note: Sharpton likes to let people know how well-connected he is. He worked into his spiel not just having met with Biden last week, but having done so “at the White House.” Not sure how much of a badge of honor that is. After all, one of Hunter Biden’s business buddies visited the White House 19 times.

On Morning Joe, Mike Barnicle asking Al Sharpton if he is “worried” about his “friend” Joe Biden because of his “enormously difficult” job was sponsored in part by WalmartGlaxoSmithKline, maker of Nucala, and Unilever, maker of Knorr.  

Here’s the transcript.

MIKE BARNICLE: Reverend, you referenced being with the president last week. He is a friend of yours. Yesterday, once again, the President of the United States in Uvalde, Texas, it was like witnessing the wounded visiting the wounded. He knows what it’s like to suffer loss. Loss that is just tragic and lasting and deep. Loss that never goes away, never disappears, never, never, never leaves your memory. 

So my question to you is, because of your friendship with him, he’s in Delaware today. Today is the seventh anniversary of the death of Beau Biden, his son. He will be going to Mass again today to sit and pray and think about his son and about the nation that he’s governing. 

Do you worry at all about him? The presidency is an enormously, enormously difficult job. Nobody has any idea of how difficult and all-encompassing that job is, until you sit behind that desk in the Oval Office. Do you worry about him?

AL SHARPTON: You know, I’m not worried about him. From what I’ve gotten to know of Joe Biden, I think he’s been able to take his pain and make it the reason that he will use power to deal with others’ pain. 

I sensed in talking to him last Wednesday at the White House a real anger at those that cheapen the lives of people, when he thinks about Beau, when he thinks about the losses he’s had. 

And he can’t do anything about his son, but he can do something about other sons and daughters. And I sense a determination by him, that he is going to do that. I really do believe that.

He and I have not always believed in the ’90s, but I’ve gotten to know him, and there is a real sense of purpose and decency. We may disagree on some ways of getting there, but I clearly believe he wants to get there. And I think that he will, today, as he remembers his loss and remembers his pain, say that there is nothing many do do to help me. But I can certainly help the parents in Texas and the parents in Buffalo. And I’m going to do what I can. That’s the Joe Biden that I have come to believe exists.
