During a rare moment of clarity, Fox News host Laura Ingraham praised Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for delivering a “good speech” at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night, telling Donald Trump Jr, that the former Vice President “beat expectations,” as Trump Jr.’s smile turned into a frown.
“People were expecting him to flub every line and have a senior moment,” Ingraham said, adding that Biden’s speech “was devoid of any policy other than universal masking, but he delivered a good speech and for what he was doing, very emotional.”
Trump Jr. ― who wore a grin as he listened to Ingraham dismiss Biden’s record as vice president ― immediately turned serious and went on the defensive. He argued that Biden was incapable of being tough on China.
“Donald Trump’s the first guy to stand up to those people; he’s the first guy to actually get deals done, whether it be with China, whether it be a peace deal in the Middle East. Where’s Joe Biden been? … He was in control for eight years with Barack Obama, why didn’t they do any of these things? If Joe Biden knew how to fix anything, why didn’t he tell Barack Obama how to do it?” Trump Jr. said.

This was like when Trump was booed at the baseball game. Their faces give them away. https://t.co/qtLsEQcC71
