Biden calls Trump ‘absolute fool’ over mocking his face mask

WASHINGTON — Joe Biden labeled President Trump “an absolute fool” for apparently poking fun at the presumptive Democratic nominee for wearing a mask at a Memorial Day service Monday.

In an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash, the former veep was asked about Trump’s retweet of a Fox News commentator making fun of Biden’s decision to wear a mask at a service while he went without one.

“He’s a fool, an absolute fool to talk that way,” Biden, 77, said in his first face-to-face interview since the coronavirus pandemic upended his presidential campaign.

“I mean, every leading doctor in the world is saying we should wear a mask when you’re in a crowd, especially when you know you’re going to be in a position when you’re going to get inadvertently closer than 12-feet to somebody,” he said.

Biden went on to accuse the Republican president of “stoking deaths.”

“It just costs people’s lives. It’s cost peoples lives and we’re almost 100,000 dead today. 100,000 people,” he said, calling the death toll “a tragedy.”

Bash asked the Democratic hopeful if he thought wearing a mask projected strength or weakness, to which Biden responded “leadership.”

“What it presents and projects is leadership. Presidents are supposed to lead, not engage in folly and be falsely masculine,” he said.

In the tweet shared by Trump, Fox News commentator Brit Hume shared a photo of Biden clad in a black mask and his trademark Aviator sunglasses, remarking: “This might help explain why Trump doesn’t like to wear a mask in public. Biden today.”

Biden was also asked about controversial remarks he made last week when

he told a popular radio host that African-American voters having a hard time choosing between him and Trump weren’t black.

He called the comments a “mistake” but blamed host Charlamagne tha God — telling Bash, “He was being a wise guy and I responded in kind.”

Biden demurred when pressed if he would commit to choosing a woman of color to be his vice president — with the race to join his ticket reaching a fever pitch and a vetting process now underway.

“There are women of color under consideration and there are women from every part of country under consideration because there are a lot of women in this country that are ready, but I’m not ready to make that commitment,” he said.
