Jill Biden calls husband Joe 'a moderate'

  Jill Biden calls husband Joe 'a moderate' She says a lot of Republicans have said they would vote for Joe Biden. "From what I've seen a lot of Republicans are going to vote for Joe, and they've been saying it. Maybe they're not saying it publicly, but when I was out there on the trail, a lot of people came up to me and said 'Jill, I'm a Republican, but I'm going to vote for your husband because he's a moderate, and he's a steady leader and we believe in Joe,'" Biden said, recalling sentiments shared with her before coronavirus largely shut down the campaign trail in March.

Fox News host Sandra Smith quickly cut off a Trump campaign spokesman after he went on a bizarre tangent talking about former Vice President Joe Biden's leg hair.

Biden tops Trump in June, 2nd-quarter cash; GOP still flush

  Biden tops Trump in June, 2nd-quarter cash; GOP still flush ATLANTA (AP) — Democratic presidential challenger Joe Biden outpaced President Donald Trump's campaign fundraising juggernaut in June and in the second quarter of this election year, continuing a stunning reversal of fortune from his threadbare primary campaign. The joint GOP effort still has considerably more cash left to spend ahead of the Nov. 3 election, but Biden's newfound fundraising muscle suggests Democrats will have the resources to finance a strong operation across a wide footprint of battleground states.

Smith was asking Hogan Gidley, the Trump campaign's new national press secretary, about the three fall debates scheduled between Trump and Biden.

Gidley started by saying Biden's performances in the Democratic primary put him down in the polls until he turned things around in South Carolina.

Then Gidley veered off to reference a 2017 clip of Biden, where the former VP was talking about his time as a lifeguard in Delaware at an event where a local pool was being named after him.

"You're gonna hear interesting comments from Joe Biden about how children love his leg hair, and how he used to coax children up onto the porch with ice cream during quarantines," Gidley said.

"Whoah," Smith interjected before asking Gidley to get back to what can be gained for both candidates in the debates.

Poll: Biden leads Trump by 12 points nationally

In the 2017 clip — which resurfaced and went viral during the campaign — Biden talked about how kids would come up to him in his lifeguard chair and straighten out his leg hair, describing it as a gimmick they found funny because his blonde leg hair stood out since he was one of the only white people at the pool.

As for the ice cream comment, that came from a CNN interview where Biden talked about how he was quarantining during the outset of the pandemic and unable to be with his grandchildren as usual.

Biden told CNN's Jake Tapper that his son Beau's kids live "about a mile as the crow flies from us," and that they would walk over to his home to see their grandparents on the porch.

"Every day they walk over through the woods and through a neighborhood and they sit out in the backyard and we sit out on the porch and I bribe them with ice cream," Biden said, referring to his grandkids and not random children, as Gidley implied.

"Hold on, Hogan," Smith said.

"We're talking about whether or not the president wants to debate Joe Biden, and whether or not — inside the Joe Biden camp — they're urging Joe Biden to debate Donald Trump. Who benefits the most from a debate?"

"Well obviously the President of the United States, Donald Trump," Gidley replied.
