Some of what Joe Biden said in his 2016 announcement speech today led Chris Matthews to conclude that the veep has “no love” for Hillary Clinton and has serious doubts about her trustworthiness.
Biden took yet another veiled shot at Clinton over her comment about being proud of making Republican enemies, and Matthews also noticed a veiled warning in his remarks that he will push back against anyone in the field taking shots at the Obama administration’s record.
“Joe Biden has no love for Hillary Clinton,” Matthews said, “and certainly no endorsement to offer.”
He thinks that Biden was very personally targeting Clinton and subtly denouncing what he doesn’t like about her (Howard Fineman said Biden can’t “stomach the Clintons”), while “doubting her trustworthiness to back the Obama record.”
