(TheConservativeNews.org) – President Joe Biden made headlines on Tuesday when he told a story about intentionally leaving a dead dog on a woman’s front doorstep.
Biden described the scene by saying the woman, who he said was “of a different political persuasion” than he was, had called him when he was a member of the city council to complain about a dead dog on her front lawn. When he informed her that the county would take care of it the next morning, he said she quickly demanded that he take care of it right away.
“I got a call one night,” Biden began. “A woman said to me, obviously not of the same persuasion as I was politically, called me and said, ‘There’s a dead dog on my lawn.’”
The audience laughed as Biden continued, “And I said, ‘Yes, Ma’am,’ I said, ‘Have you called the county?’ She said, ‘Yes, they’re not here.’ And I said, ‘Well, I’ll get them in the morning.’”
Biden went on to say that the woman was clearly not satisfied with his response, and demanded to have someone take care of the situation right away.
“She said, ‘I want it removed now, I pay your salary!’” Biden said, adding that after that, he went to the woman’s house to handle it.
“So I went over,” Biden said, and paused momentarily as the laughter continued. “I picked it up, she said, ‘I want it out of my from yard,’ I put it on her doorstep.”
The crowd erupted with laughter again, at which Biden waved at them and insisted, “But I’ve gotten much better since then.”
Emily Compagno responded to the story on Wednesday’s broadcast of “Outnumbered” on Fox News, saying, “Right after that, he says, ‘I’ve gotten better since then.’ Has he? This is the same person that called for unity on the campaign trail.”
She went on to point to several instances on the campaign trail when Biden had lashed out at people who had challenged him, calling one a “liar” and another “a lying dog-faced pony soldier.”
“At the very beginning of it, you get a clear understanding that he – this woman did not vote for him because of the way he words it. Already, he has drawn a line in the political sand,” co-host Harris Faulkner agreed. “By the end of it, he said, so I went over there and gets huge applause and laughter. I moved the dog from the lawn to the porch. Huge applause and laughter. About a dead dog. Consider the topic.”
Faulkner noted that Biden was clearly setting up the story as a joke, but she argued that it might shed some light about how he really intended to deal with Republicans or anyone who opposed him.
“I thought it was the weirdest thing that he would start off by making it very clear that she did not vote for him. Oh, he’s going out of his way to help this woman out and go over there and not taking care of the problem, but making it worse. Does that mean he does not know how to do his job?” Faulkner added. “My take on it is this is not an example of how effective you are as a Democrat, but it does show you where he might be if you are a Republican. That is if this is even true. You can set an egg timer for how long it’s going to take Jen Psaki to tell us that he misremembered. Maybe it’s true.”
