Speaking in soft tones and encouraging the crowd to refrain from applause, Vice President Joe Biden quietly delivered a devastating critique of Donald Trump.
Biden described Trump as “a man who embraces the tactics of our enemies — torture, religious intolerance.”
“You all know, all the Republicans know, that’s not who we are,” Biden said.
The speech itself, which captivated the convention crowd, was a rebuttal to Trump — not just in substance but in tone.
Biden, in simple language, stripped down Trump to his essence. Biden’s purposely subdued approach was a sharp contrast to Trump’s convention speech, which was delivered in a near continuous shout.
Many have attempted to explain Trump and expose his flaws. Biden’s effort may have been the most effective yet.
