“You run the risk of deciding whether or not you’re going to prostitute yourself to give the answer you know they want to hear in order to get funded to run for that office,” Biden said during the program “The Advocates.”

“I went to the big guys for the money,” Biden continued. “I was ready to prostitute myself in the manner in which I talk about it, but what happened was they said, ‘Come back when you’re 40, son.'”

Such clarity and vision in one so young. Such candid and insightful commentary. Such piercing self-awareness. When people are telling you who they are, listen.

    Joe isn’t just a grifter, he’s a senile one. His number two is Kamala, whose own political path was based on, shall we say “considerations,” provided to Willie Brown. When Kamala melts down, there’s always Grandma Nancy to fall back on. Will Nanc tear up her own State of the Union addresses?
