Joe Biden got off his rocker and entered the first presidential debate with a rocking, rolling line of logic to nab votes that went like this: Donald Trump’s a liar, liar, pants on fire.

And his mother wears Army boots, too?

“Wishful thinking,” Biden said, about Trump, in answer to something-something host Chris Wallace said. “He’s been promising a health care plan since he got elected. He has no plan. … And the fact is, this man doesn’t know what he’s talking about.” And a few moments later, its sister saying: “The president has no plan.”

Another great debate moment: Dear Donald, from Joe — an obviously frustrated Joe: “Will you shut up, man.”

Yes. That’s the quote.

“Will you shut up, man.” Go, Joe. And a few moments later, its sister saying: “Would you tell him to shush for a minute.”

Repetition, thy name is Democrat. 

Maybe it’s all Biden could remember?

It would have been a dog fight — but for the wide-eyed puppy looks cast by Biden every time Trump scored another point.

Policy? The economy? Education? China?

Nah. It’s prime time. Liar, liar pants on fire is so much more exciting.
