What is up with Joe Biden’s fascination with former Chinese dictator Mao Zedong?
During an interview with ABC News over the weekend, Biden quoted Mao. It’s the second time he has done this in just a couple of months.
Does he not know that Mao was responsible for the deaths of millions of his own people?
The Daily Caller reports:
Biden Again Quotes Chinese Dictator Chairman Mao In Campaign Appearance
Former Vice President Joe Biden quoted former Chinese dictator Mao Zedong for at least the second time in a campaign appearance Sunday.
The moment came in an interview with ABC’s Robin Roberts, where Biden referenced one of Mao’s sayings regarding women’s rights. Mao’s declaration of gender equality came as part of his “great leap forward,” an effort to modernize a then-rural China that resulted in the deaths of more than 45 million people.
“As that old expression goes, ‘women hold up half the sky,’ and in order to be able to succeed, you’ve got to be dealt in across the board,” Biden told Roberts.
Biden has referenced this quote from Mao at least one other time on the 2020 campaign trail during a digital campaign event July 14, saying it in reference to economic relief for women amid coronavirus.

Does Biden have any idea how bad it sounds for him to quote Mao?
In new ABC interview, Biden quotes CHAIRMAN MAO to explain why he chose Kamala Harris as his running mate.

Mao committed mass murder against his own people. He is not a hero.
