(TNS) Political pandering by the Garbage Party’s 2020 presidential contenders just hit uncharted territory this weekend when the gaffe-tastic former VP, Joe Biden, actually argued that his son, Hunter Biden, should be arrested and jailed.

During a campaign stopover in New Hampshire Sunday, Joe Biden told the smallish crowd that, hey, “fossil fuel executives” should be tossed in jail for, like, underserving some neighborhoods … or something.

Really? Put CEOs of oil and gas companies in jail for powering our economy, heating our homes, and ensuring we can all get to work?

What a moron, and for more than just the obvious reason of impracticality and abject stupidity.

He just implicated his own son who, recall, was an “executive” board member of a Ukrainian “fossil fuel” firm, Burisma.

Now, about that political pandering and being a gigantic Garbage Party hypocrite: Joe Biden gets a lot of air time, and by that we mean actually flying way up in the air…burning fossil fuels.


He’s known as “Amtrak Joe,” but former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign spent a lot more money on private air travel during the third quarter than his top rivals for the 2020 Democratic nomination.

The Biden campaign spent nearly $924,000 on private jet travel in the third quarter, according to data from the Federal Elections Commission. South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s campaign, by comparison, spent $443,000 on private jets.

Biden’s big spending on private jets was disclosed in an official campaign finance filing that showed the former vice president’s campaign had nearly $9 million in cash on hand heading into the fourth quarter. That put him well behind Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Buttigieg.

Biden’s dwindling fundraising and cash reserves have his donors and fundraisers worried he might not have the resources to make it beyond the Super Tuesday primaries March 3.

That’s okay. He can always take the train back to Vermont when it’s all over because, um, “the environment.”

Joe and Hunter
