During a Monday fundraiser in front of wealthy donors, Biden cited a quote that has since made people question his judgment.

The presumptive Democrat nominee appeared at a digital fundraiser with Obama adviser Valarie Jarrett. When asked a question about women’s economic issues and relief, he quoted the Chinese dictator Mao Zedong’s famed saying, according to Fox News.

“We’ve got to get real economic relief into women’s hands now,” Biden reportedly said according to Fox. “Women hold up half the sky.”

Mao Zedong proclaimed “women hold up half the sky” at the beginning of his reign to encourage women to work outside the home and advance the nation by working in fields and industry.

Zedong led the communist revolution in China and served as the leader of the Chinese Communist Party from 1935 and chairman of the People’s Republic of China from 1949 to 1959.

“An estimated 65 million Chinese died as a result of Mao’s repeated, merciless attempts to create a new ‘socialist’ China,” according to the Heritage Foundation.

With China becoming a center focus in the campaign, it may not be strategic to quote former murderous dictators from the country.

House Republicans Subpoena DOJ for Records of Biden’s Interview with Special Counsel

Joe Biden

Special Counsel Robert Hur determined that President Joe Biden not only mishandled classified documents, but he also declined to press charges against him because his advanced age and declining memory would influence a potential jury.

“Mr. Biden will likely present himself to the jury, as he did during his interview with our office, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” Hur wrote.

House Republicans have subpoenaed the Department of Justice (DOJ) for the interview transcripts, audio, notes and video files from Hur’s interview with Biden which transpired during the investigation.

“The Committees further seek to understand whether the White House or President Biden’s personal attorneys placed any limitations or scoping restrictions during the interviews with Special Counsel Hur or Mr. Mark Zwonitzer precluding or addressing any potential statements directly linking President Biden to troublesome foreign payments,” the lawmakers said in a subpoena cover letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland.

“Special Counsel Hur’s report outlined that classified documents Joe Biden stashed for years relate to countries where his family cashed in on the Biden brand. We owe it to the American people to provide transparency and accountability about the extent of Joe Biden retaining sensitive materials and the concerns raised about his current mental state and fitness to be President of the United States,” Comer said in a statement. Comer, Jordan and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R., Mo.) are leading the impeachment inquiry.

“Special Counsel Robert Hur’s investigation into President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents made two things clear: there’s a double standard of justice in this country and Joe Biden isn’t fit for office. The transcripts and materials from his investigation are critical to our oversight work,” Jordan stated.
