At a private fundraiser in Seattle this Saturday, President Joe Biden did not mince words as he addressed his thoughts on former President Donald Trump, describing him as "clearly unhinged." Amidst a group of supporters and reporters, Biden articulated his belief that Trump has been adversely affected by his 2020 electoral defeat.

"It’s clear that... when he lost in 2020, something snapped in him," Biden observed, emphasizing Trump’s fixation with the past election. "He’s not only obsessed with losing in 2020; he’s clearly unhinged.

Just listen to what he’s telling people." Despite his candid critique of Trump, Biden acknowledged the competitive nature of the upcoming November election. He pointed to recent polls indicating a tight race, saying, "We feel good about the state of the race, but we know the race is close." This acknowledgment comes in light of a CNN poll conducted by SSRS last month, which shows Trump maintaining a steady lead with 49% of registered voters in a head-to-head matchup against Biden, who stands at 43%.

Biden Mocks Trump's COVID Advice

While Trump has been preoccupied with legal challenges, spending considerable time in a Manhattan courtroom for his hush money trial, Biden has maintained a busy agenda filled with policy speeches and campaign events.

During these appearances, Biden has frequently taken the opportunity to critique Trump’s previous policies and statements, particularly concerning the COVID-19 pandemic. Reflecting on Trump’s controversial comments about treating the virus, Biden joked to a crowd of builders, "By the way, remember when he was trying to deal with Covid, he said just inject a little bleach in your veins? He missed.

It all went to his hair." The fundraising event, hosted at the residence of former Microsoft executive Jon Shirley, saw Biden in a candid and determined mood as he wrapped up his speech, promising donors, "I’ll try my best not to disappoint you." This statement, underlining his commitment to the campaign and to his supporters, highlights the intense political climate as Biden prepares to contend with Trump once again in the looming election.
