WATCH: Biden Calls US Troops 'Stupid Bastards'

If the media thought the fake news about Trump calling fallen World War One soldiers "suckers" and "losers" was breaking news, there's no excuse for them to ignore this resurfaced video of Biden calling our men and women in uniform "stupid bastards." 

The video was reportedly taken on March 7, 2016, during Biden's visit to Al Dhafra airbase in the United Arab Emirates.

The clip begins with Biden proclaiming that he has "incredibly good judgment" and ends with Biden ridiculing our nation's finest. 

"Clap for that, you stupid bastards," Biden said. "C'mon man. Man, you are a dull bunch. Must be slow here, man."

So here we see Biden in his own words calling servicemembers "stupid bastards," unlike the anonymously sourced and widely debunked story in The Atlantic that claimed President Trump referred to fallen U.S. soldiers in World War One as "suckers" and "losers." Other people with the president that day and willing to go on the record said the Atlantic story wasn't true, including former National Security Adviser John Bolton who recently wrote a book attacking Trump. 

Biden is known for making bizarre statements. In February, the candidate accused a voter of being a "lying dog-faced pony soldier." According to Biden, the candidate's brother likes to use quotes from John Wayne movies and sometimes they rub off on him. 

Quick, Did John Wayne ever call our troops "stupid bastards"? 

Editor's note: According to new information, while Biden did, in fact, call troops "stupid bastards," as the clips shows, the comment was made in jest. Per Andrew Bates, a spokesman for Biden's campaign: 

"Vice President Biden was jokingly encouraging the audience to clap for an airwoman on the stage, and a number of service members can be seen laughing and smiling at the comment. Seconds before, he praised them for 'the incredible sacrifices (they) make for our country.’"
