Joe Biden has accused Rudy Giuliani of being a Russian pawn who staged a ‘smear campaign’ against him, which resulted from the discovery of a laptop that is said to belong to his son Hunter.
In an interview for the Sunday night episode of 60 Minutes, the 77-year-old also set out his plans for the Supreme Court, after dodging the question for weeks.
He laughed questions about his mental capacity, even as he mixed up some data about his economic plan for schools.
But, he insisted, it was Donald Trump – not him – who lost his grip on reality.
“The way he deals with COVID is absolutely totally irresponsible,” Biden said.
He tells people that we have turned a corner in one of his recent gatherings.
“Well, he’s gone – as my grandpa would say he turned the corner. I mean, we’re in real trouble. ‘

Biden spoke about the laptop scandal and the emails found about plans for business ventures involving China and Ukraine.
Biden said he believed Giuliani, Trump’s attorney who used the laptop around various media outlets for publicity, was being used by Russia.
“From what I have read and know, the intelligence community warned the president that Giuliani was being fed disinformation from the Russians,” Biden said.
And we also know that Putin is doing his best to spread misinformation about Joe Biden.
And so when you put together the combination of Russia, Giuliani, the president, it is exactly what it is.
“It’s a smear campaign because he doesn’t have anything to talk about. What is he running on? What is he running on? ‘

Biden also addressed his proposals for Supreme Court reform
He spoke with unusual clarity as to whether he would change the composition of the Supreme Court, in light of the anticipated appointment of Amy Coney Barrett and the conservative tendency the court will take.
Biden, who was strongly criticized by his opponents for saying voters should wait until after the election to see his plans before the Supreme Court, said in Sunday’s episode that he would convene a panel of Democrats, Republicans and jurists to to investigate everything. the options.
And the famously gaffe-prone former vice president also maimed his data on public schools.
“I can send any qualified person to a four-year university in their country for $ 150 billion,” he said.
The program said Biden’s advisers later told them he made a mistake, and they wanted to say it twice.
Biden’s running mate, Kamala Harris, said she believed Trump was racist, and his attacks on her were “ unfortunately predictable. ”
Harris said she hoped her role, if chosen, will inspire future generations.
She also denied disagreement with Biden on the health policy and the Green New Deal, stressing that his platform was her platform.
“I wouldn’t have gotten to the ticket if I hadn’t supported what Joe suggested,” she said.

Much of the program – a traditional pre-election show featuring interviews with the president, vice president and their two challengers – was dedicated to Trump, who ended the interview early, exasperated by the questions.
Trump’s refusal to endure Lesley Stahl’s questioning on Tuesday sparked uproar on social media, and the president, enraged at being called weak, released the entire clip on his Facebook page on Thursday.
“Look at the bias, hatred, and rudeness on behalf of 60 Minutes and CBS,” he said, linking to the 37-minute segment.
Stahl explained in her introduction to Sunday’s show, “We had prepared to discuss the many problems and questions facing the president, but in what has become an overly public uproar, the conversation was cut short.”
“It started out politely, but ended unfortunately, contentiously,” she said.
On Sunday night, viewers saw what happened when Trump’s camera stopped rolling and the president walked away.
Stahl sat in her chair, amazed.

“I have a lot of questions that I haven’t asked,” Stahl says as the president walks outside the cameras.
Kayleigh McEnany, the White House press secretary, then comes in with a heavy folder that she describes as “his plan of care.”
Stahl says in a voice-over: “It was tough. Full of executive orders, conference initiatives, but not a comprehensive health plan. ‘
Stahl then asked McEnany, “And the president isn’t coming back?”
McEnany replies, “The president has given you a lot of time.”

Mike Pence, the vice president, was then in the hot seat.
He told Stahl that Trump was not interested in “ back and forth with the media. ”
“Lesley, President Trump is a man who speaks his mind,” Pence said.
“I think one of the great strengths he had as President of the United States is that the American people always know where they stand.
And he is always ready. And the American people know that – in this day and age, it’s less about going back and forth with the media, and really more about how we get this country back all the way. ‘
Trump would return to film a segment in the Rose Garden with Pence, but he did not return.
