Presidential candidate former VP Joe Biden’s mic drop is everything: “My Dad left Scranton for a reason Donald Trump couldn’t possibly understand.” Ouch.
Biden clapped back to Trump’s hit that he left Pennsylvania behind. In fact, Biden left Scranton when he was 10 years old because he family moved to Delaware where his father found a job.
“He left Scranton!” Biden said, quoting Trump. “I did, I was 10 years old, man. My dad left for a reason [Trump] couldn’t possibly understand. He left when coal died and there were no jobs,” NY Times Jonathan Martin tweeted.

Donald Trump thought he scored a knockout with that lie during his rally in Pennsylvania, but he knocked himself out instead. Was Biden supposed to stay back in Scranton while his family left?
“Don’t forget: Biden deserted you. He’s not from Pennsylvania. I guess he was born here, but he left you, folks. He left you for another state. Remember that, please,” Trump told the crowd.
