Former Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday that he’ll announce his running mate “the first week in August.”
He assured reporters that it would not be a “Black female Mo-Taur”!
Progressive Insurance created the “Motaur”, a strange and mythical-looking creature for a new campaign to sell motorcycle insurance.
Above, Motaur, with the human half played by actor Terrence Terrell, combines the head and upper body of a man with a motorcycle chassis that comprises his bottom half. In the ads, when Motaur is parked at a gasoline pump or somewhere else, he quite naturally elicits head scratching and startled stares from those he encounters.
In one of his frequent gaffes the former Vice President and the Democrats’ presumptive 2020 presidential candidate apparently inadvertently revealed that it was his ‘handlers’ who dictated to him what he must look for in a vice presidential candidate.
Ass. Press, July 28, 2020
Poor Joe Biden, the hapless 2020 Democrat presidential candidate, told reporters Tuesday in a moment of addled candor, that he misunderstood his Party’s ‘handlers’ when they told him what he must look for in selecting a running mate, claiming that he thought they said a “Black female Motaur” (the half human-half motorcycle, made famous in recent Progressive Insurance television commercials)., Biden told reporters that’s why the selection of his running mate in November has taken so long.
Biden admitted that he was having trouble finding such a potential candidate…the closest he came to one was Rashida Tlaib…”but her ‘saddlebags’ were too big and ugly, he admitted. dlh
The ‘story’ as reported in the Wall Street Journal:
Where it stands: Biden has pledged to name a woman as his running mate, and last week told MSNBC that among the finalists are “four black women.”
His team has been vetting Sen. Kamala Harris, former national security adviser Susan Rice, and Reps. Val Demings and Karen Bass as potential running mates.
He told MSNBC last week that he would meet the finalists in person, promising “personal discussions with each of the candidates who are left and make a decision.”
