Joe Biden Suggests Coal Miners Should Learn To Code During Campaign Stop In New Hampshire

Is Joe Biden trying to lose?

It’s hard to come to any other conclusion.

During a campaign stop in New Hampshire this weekend, he suggested that coal miners should learn to become computer programmers. This sort of talk does not sit well with working people.

Joe Biden Suggests Coal Miners Should Learn To Code

Former Vice President Joe Biden suggested Monday that displaced coal miners should learn to code.

“Anybody who can go down 3,000 feet in a mine can sure as hell learn to program as well,” Biden said at a New Hampshire event Monday. He added later: “Anybody who can throw coal into a furnace can learn how to program, for God’s sake!”

Biden’s adversarial posture toward the coal industry bears similarities to that of 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, who said her administration would “put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.”

Dave Weigel of the Washington Post broke the story on Twitter:

He is such a terrible campaigner.

Can you even imagine how this would go over in Pennsylvania?
