Julian Castro Plays the Victim After Attacking Biden’s Mental Capacity in Debate

Julian Castro Plays the Victim After Attacking Biden’s Mental Capacity in Debate

“I spent every second on last night’s debate stage fighting for you — and now I’m being viciously attacked for it”

Joe Biden is running for the Democratic nomination and that means he is fair game for his opponents. That does not mean, however, that no one is allowed to notice the nasty way Julian Castro went after him in the last debate on Thursday night.

In case you missed it, Castro basically tried to catch Joe Biden in a “gotcha” about his ability to remember something he had said minutes before. It was obviously a planned attack, and it came off as dirty. The audience gasped loudly in surprise.

Watch:

Lots of people on the left are calling Castro out for this. He was slammed by the ladies of ‘The View.’

John Gage writes at the Washington Examiner:

‘Put a fork in it, the campaign is over’: The View slams Julián Castro’s ‘ageism’

The View hosts took aim at Julián Castro after he attacked Joe Biden’s age during the third Democratic presidential debate.

“Put a fork in it, the campaign is over,” host Meghan McCain said Friday on the show, calling Castro’s attack on Biden a “Trump tactic.”

Joy Behar, who is the same age as Biden at 76, said she and people her age could turn on Castro over his ageism. “I have to question Castro’s intelligence,” Behar said.

“I personally found it cringeworthy,” Abby Huntsman said. “I would say that was probably the nail in the coffin for Castro. I think this is one of the last times you’re going to see him on a debate stage.”

Host Sunny Hostin called the comment “very, very tone-deaf.”

See the segment below:

Castro is responding to criticism like this by playing the victim and trying to fundraise off of it.

Castro Fundraises Off Biden Spat: ‘I’m Being Viciously Attacked’

Presidential candidate Julián Castro is trying to fundraise off his controversial spat with former Vice President Joe Biden, whose memory he insulted during Thursday’s Democratic primary debate in Houston.

“I spent every second on last night’s debate stage fighting for you — and now I’m being viciously attacked for it,” Castro said in an email blast to donors and supporters on Friday…

“This is the biggest challenge my campaign has ever faced. I’ve never needed you to have my back with $5 more than I do in this defining moment,” Castro’s fundraising letter said. “I could either play it safe and give Vice President Biden a free pass like everyone else. Or I could speak up, challenge the conversation, and demand answers for you and your family. I’m not in this race to play it safe.”

It’s hilarious to see Castro claim that he is being “viciously attacked” after trying to plunge a political knife into Biden’s back on national television.

He thought he was going to get a viral moment out of this and instead it revealed his own lack of character.

The ladies of ‘The View’ could be right, and he may be finished.

Good riddance.

It’s a shame someone has to win this one.

“…host Meghan McCain said Friday on the show, calling Castro’s attack on Biden a “Trump tactic.””

A fat pig tells another lie.

“This is the biggest challenge my campaign has ever faced. I’ve never needed you to have my back with $5 more than I do in this defining moment…”

$5.00 Those platforms to stand on to make you appear taller in the debate are expensive.

Castro, it’s not your height that is a problem, it’s your short intellect.

“The ladies of ‘The View’ could be right, and he may be finished.”

The witches on “The Blind” are never right, Castro was finished before he started.

And the choices are: Liars, liars, and liars. Well done, Democrats.

trying to catch biden in a gotcha/gaffe/outright lie moment would be about as difficult as trying to outrun a stump

castro couldn’t even manage that–not only ignorant but useless as well–he should probably just go ahead and join the squad–at least he’d look better than any of them

You picked the smuggest of the smug mug faces from that guy for the article photo…I’d say well done but it’s pretty hard to look at.

Geez … all Biden had to do was calmly walk over there and kick the booster step out from under Castro then sit on him like a bar stool …

Every photo of Castro shows this high-nose, above-the-rest-of-is arrogance. He’s really full of himself.

I guess that’s why I have this tremendous urge to choke him to death.

From the beginning of his candidacy I have been unable to fathom the reason for it. He is personally unlikable, possesses one of the weakest resumes, little more “Latin” than Beto-who at least speaks spanish, and no discernible constituency. Some run to become a VP candidate, some for a cabinet position-altho I doubt that Castro would be considered by any President concerned about stab wounds in his/her back, and his sell by date is too close to the present to suggest a talking head position with CNN or MSNBC and I think we all discount that Castro might remotely consider that he has a snowball’s chance of ever gaining the nomination. So what is the reason for him running? Seriously I wonder?

lol. if this kind of attack makes him whimper, imagine he gets the nomination and Trump actually turns his sites to him. LOL

This was a planned, pre-mediated attack, pulled of with extraordinary clumsiness and wrong on the facts. The fool pulled the trigger on the wrong cue.

$5.
Too expensive.

This worm’s turd is one of the sons of “Rosie” La Raza, friend of Angela Davis — why is anyone surprised?

The Bonfire of the nominees.

I shouldn’t gawk at this self-immolation, but just can’t resist.

Trump might have won by a small majority. Instead the Democrats seem to want him to win over 40 states and 350+EV.

See Tim Pool who is a left-centrist and sane. Those he talks to say “I don’t want to but won’t vote for these crazies”.

The schmuck couldn’t run the proverbial hot dog stand. But he’s ‘fighting’ for ‘us.’
