Joe Biden’s Own Family Admit They Voted for Trump, Not Hillary


Former Vice President Joe Biden says President Donald Trump is the most dangerous president in U.S. history, but if that is true, why did Biden’s own extended family vote for Trump?

According to a report at Townhall, Biden’s own brother recently said that some of the former VP’s own extended family voted for Trump in 2016.

Biden told The Palm Beach Post the family members felt “slighted” by the Democratic presidential nominee’s campaign strategy. He said he believes his brother would have been able to pick up states the former secretary of state lost had he run.

“We never would have lost Pennsylvania, and all my relatives — the Finnegan family — who voted for Donald Trump because they felt slighted by Hillary and her campaign,” Biden said. “We never would have not gone to Michigan as the campaign decided not to do because they felt entitled to the votes of those people.”

“Assumptive politics is losing politics,” he added. “You have to work for every single vote and people have to know individually, collectively and severally that you care about them, that they’re important.”

But with its January 7 story, even the Palm Beach Post tried to cover for Biden.

Now, imagine if Biden were a former Republican vice president and the media found out his extended family had voted for a Democrat. The story would have gone national that a Republican’s family had rejected his party and voted Democrat.

But, what is the Palm Beach Post’s focus? Here is its headline: “Joe Biden running for president? His brother thinks so.”

Then, deep in the story, they mention that Frank Biden’s family voted for Trump.

Again, if it was the family of a high-profile Republican voting against the party, THAT would have been the focus of the story.

In fact, we can point to a similar situation to prove this. Remember during the 2018 election when Arizona congressman Paul Gosar was running for re-election? Several of his family members came out in opposition to his candidacy even though none of them actually lived in Arizona. And the media had a field day with the story. Happily, Gosar was handily re-elected despite the media’s attempt to smear him. But it wasn’t for the media’s attempt to destroy hm.

Yet, here we are with the media having a juicy story about a Democrat vice president’s family voting for Trump and they bury it at the end of the story.
