Biden Rips Trump Over Bounty Story: ‘Dereliction of Duty’ If Any of This Is Even Remotely True

‘If these allegations are true ... this man is unfit to be president of the United States of America’

EXCERPT:

BIDEN: “I don’t have access to classified information anymore but if what I have heard over the last week and the recent reporting that it was in the presidential daily brief, the presidential daily brief is something I read every single day as vice president. The president read it every day. I was briefed every morning before I got to the White House and then again. So the idea that somehow he didn’t know or isn’t being briefed, it is a dereliction of duty if that’s the case, and if he was briefed and nothing was done about this that’s a dereliction of duty. I guess the best way for me to end this is I was talking to Jill, my wife Jill, and I don’t see her get outraged very often but she started asking, Joe, what would you have done?' If Beau was still in harm’s way and this information came out and the president, Beau was my son who was — I’m sorry. I apologize -- who served in Iraq for a year, was in the army -- but if he'd been in Afghanistan, what would you do, Joe? What are those parents thinking out there? What are those sons and daughters, husbands and wives? It’s an absolute dereliction of duty, if any of this is even remotely true.”
