Joe Biden calls Donald Trump Jr. 'sick' for suggesting he's a pedophile and says Donald Trump is 'petty' for not wanting to hang Barack Obama's portrait

Joe Biden laid into two generations of Trumps Tuesday night at a virtual town hall hosted by Yahoo News. 
The presumptive Democratic nominee went after Donald Trump Jr. for sharing a meme on Saturday that suggested Biden was a pedophile. 'It's sick, it's sick, it's sick, but he is his father's son.' 
The ex-veep had a lot to say about President Donald Trump's coronavirus response, but he also called him 'petty' for not wanting to hang President Barack Obama's portrait in the White House.  
Vice President Joe Biden took on two generations of Trumps during a virtual town hall with Yahoo News. He went after Donald Trump Jr. for social media posts that suggested he was a pedophile. He also hit President Trump for not wanting to hang President Obama's portrait

Donald Trump Jr. posted this meme to Instagram over the weekend that featured Democratic presumptive nominee Joe Biden and an alligator, calling him a 'pedophile.' Trump Jr. commented that 'there's definitely way too many Creepy Joe videos out there!'

NBC News reported Tuesday that the ceremony that usually takes place in a president's first term when his predecessor's portrait is unveiled won't be happening, as Trump doesn't plan to extend the invitation to Obama. 
Obama, however, also has no interest in attending, NBC News said. 
Biden had been asked by Yahoo's Brittany Shepherd about 'Obamagate,' the nebulous term Trump has been using to pin the origins of the Russia probe on top brass of the previous investigation. 
'This is a pattern: diversion, diversion, diversion. Don't speak to whatever the issues before us are,' Biden began. 'My God, "Obamagate,'" the former vice president scoffed. 
He then segued to Trump's portrait snub. 
'And he also by the way just said, I read, he's not going to allow President Obama's picture to be hung in the White House as long as he's president,' Biden continued. '. That's another inducement for you to make sure he's not president beyond January 20.'  
'Come on, this is so venal, so petty,' Biden said. 'The greatest crime? I mean my Lord,' the presumptive nominee continued, returning to 'Obamagate.' 

Shepherd then asked the candidate about posts by Donald Trump Jr.  Trump Jr. had featured a meme on his Instagram page that showed an image of Biden saying 'See you later, alligator!' An alligator responded with, 'In a while, pedophile!' 
When it was screenshot by a New York Times reporter Jonathan Martin, Trump Jr. wrote back, 'The 3 emojis in the caption should indicate to anyone with a scintilla of common sense that I’m joking around.' 
Shepherd told the former vice president that it reminded her of 'Pizzagate,' a conspiracy theory that revolved around 2016 nominee Hillary Clinton running a child sex trafficking ring out of the basement of a D.C. pizza place - which doesn't have a basement. 'Pizzagate' was difficult for the Clinton campaign to push back on because it was so farfetched. 
Biden agreed that Trump Jr. was trying to 'get something going on the internet.' 
Biden said it was a Trumpian tactic: 'Like his father says, if you way it enough people will believe it.' 
'No, I don't want to get down in the mud with these guys,' he continued. 'I mean, look, people know who I am. That good news is the bad news - they know me. They know my faults, they know my talents, they know me, so it's hard to lay on me some of the things that are totally out of sync with anything in my whole life that anyone has ever said in ther life.' 
'But this is bizarre,' Biden said, of Trump Jr. floating this idea that he can't be around kids. 
He alluded to the fact that people knew him when answering questions about Tara Reade, the former staffer who's said she was allegedly sexually assaulted by Biden in 1993. 
Biden told Shepherd and Yahoo Editor in Chief Daniel Klaidman that he hasn't watched any of Reade's interviews, including her first big television interview with former Fox News Channel and NBC News host Megyn Kelly. 
'The truth is this never, ever, happened,' Biden said again, repeating the denial he first made on 'Morning Joe' and that his campaign said when the accusation was first made. 'And what I'm reading now online and I'm seeing in the national press, apparently there's a lot of other people who are wondering whether or not it happened.' 
'It's not my role to ascribe a motive to anything that she's done or not done, except to assure you it never, ever, ever happened,' Biden said. 
The virtual town hall was supposed to be a talk about food policy - and Biden was joined by Jose Andres, the D.C.-based restaurateur and chef, whose non-profit World Central Kitchen is working to feed people during the coronavirus pandemic. 
While Biden talked food security, including worrying about meat processing plant workers saying, 'No worker's life is worth me getting a cheaper hamburger.' 
The interview was supposed to be about food insecurity, and thus included Chef Jose Andres (bottom right) as well. Biden told Yahoo's Brittany Shepherd (top right) and Daniel Klaidman (bottom right) that he found Presidnet Trump 'irresponsible' for not wearing a mask and for promoting the unproven drug hydroxchloroquine

He really hit Trump hard on the president's recent messaging efforts. 
Biden complained about the president's refusal to wear a mask while insisting on taking the unproven anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine to prevent getting COVID-19. 
'Don't worry about it, I don't need a mask,' Biden said was Trump's sentiment. 'Without my mask I can't walk outside my house because the Secret Service is out there, they're all wearing their masks, they're all getting tested.' 
'Come on. It's irrresponsible,' he said. 
As for taking hydroxychloroquine, 'It's like saying maybe if you injected Clorox into your blood it may cure you.' 
'Come on man, what is he doing? What in God's name is he doing?' Biden asked. 
'There's no serious medical personnel out there saying to use that drug, it's counterproductive, it's not going to help,' the former vice president added. 'But the president decided that's an answer. So what do you think people are going to be doing? You think they're not going to use it?' Biden asked.
