Is it true Biden sarcastically referred to Trump as 'Abraham Lincoln,' and Trump was confused by it?
Answered by: Bruce Spielbauer
That is true, Joseph Biden definitely referred to Donald Trump as “Abraham Lincoln.” This occurred after Donald Trump kept repeating the phrase, “I am the least racist person in the room!” And, let me tell you, I am the least racist person this whole room!”
没错，约瑟夫·拜登(Joseph Biden)肯定把唐纳德·特朗普称为“亚伯拉罕·林肯”(Abraham Lincoln)。这发生在唐纳德·特朗普(Donald Trump)不断重复这句话之后：“我是这个房间里种族主义最少的人！”而且，让我告诉你，我是整个房间里种族主义最少的人！“。
[Joseph Biden:] “Listen, Abraham Lincoln, you…”
It was a brilliant piece of satire, and a brilliant moment of irony, because Joseph Biden actually called Donald Trump that — in the opening words of his response.
Donald Trump was taken aback, clearly — and was not able to respond with any coherence.
Although nobody can know what was going through Donald’s mind at that instant, it is obvious that this threw Donald Trump off while he tried to figure out how he might respond. In fact, it was obvious that Donald Trump did not understand if that was an insult, or not…
This was a brilliant piece of sarcasm. It was a truly magnificent moment. Joseph Biden was getting in a dig at Trump for repeatedly making the false claim that he that he (Donald Trump) had done “more for black people than any President in history.” Of course, that is nonsense. In fact, Donald Trump has hurt more Blacks than any president in recent years, and often deliberately so. Joseph Biden decided to use the example of one of the presidents who truly has done something wonderful for black people: Abraham Lincoln.
这是一篇绝妙的讽刺。那是一个真正辉煌的时刻。约瑟夫·拜登(Joseph Biden)是在挖苦特朗普，因为他一再谎称自己(唐纳德·特朗普)“为黑人做的事情比历史上任何一位总统都多”。当然，这是无稽之谈。事实上，唐纳德·特朗普(Donald Trump)近年来伤害的黑人比任何一位总统都多，而且往往是故意这样做的。约瑟夫·拜登(Joseph Biden)决定以亚伯拉罕·林肯(Abraham Lincoln)为例，他是一位真正为黑人做了好事的总统。
Sarcasm tends to be beyond Donald Trump.
Irony is definitely way, way, way way beyond Donald Trump. That has always been true.
Trump’s response at that point was a typical babbling mish-mash of incoherence.
The “Abraham Lincoln” reference appears to have sent the bigot’s head spinning, for the next 45 seconds or so.
But then, this bigot’s head appears to always be spinning…
