Joe Biden Faces Left-Wing Backlash For Calling Dick Cheney ‘Decent Man’ In 2015

Share:

Former Vice President Joe Biden is facing backlash from the political left after a clip of him calling former Vice President Dick Cheney a “decent man” in 2015 resurfaced online Thursday.

“I actually like Dick Cheney, for real. I get on with him. I think he’s a decent man,” Biden said at an October 2015 symposium at the University of Minnesota.

The clip went viral after Emma Vigeland, a correspondent with left-wing outlet The Young Turks, posted it online.

Biden’s mild praise for the former vice president was enough to spark an online backlash.

“Dick Cheney was the architect of war crimes, but OK,” MSNBC host Chris Hayes wrote in a widely shared tweet.

Other leftists were similarly critical of Biden.

Biden faced similar backlash in February after he described Vice President Mike Pence as a “decent guy.”

He later backtracked following criticism from actress Cynthia Nixon.
