On Wednesday, Vice President Joe Biden took the stage at the Democratic National Convention and delivered a rousing speech culminating in a fierce attack on Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.


Biden eviscerated Trump on everything from his appeals to middle class voters and fear-mongering rhetoric to his personal tagline

Biden brutally tore into Trump's professed care about the middle class — which he deemed "a bunch of malarkey," proclaiming "give me a break!"

"This guy doesn't have a clue about the middle class, not a clue," Biden said. He also referenced his own humble Pennsylvania roots and nickname "Middle Class Joe."

"He has no clue about what makes America great," he continued. "Actually, he has no clue, period."

The crowd proceeded to cheer "not a clue! not a clue!"

Biden also slammed Trump for preying on Americans' fears and anxieties.

"We cannot elect a man who exploits our fears and vices and other terrors," Biden said. "A man who embraces the methods of our enemies... it betrays our values."

He also slammed Trump's famous catchphrase. 

"His cynicism is unbounded," Biden exclaimed. "His lack of empathy and compassion can be summed up in the phrase I suspect he's proud of and he made famous: 'You're fired!' I mean think about that.... How can there be pleasure in saying 'you're fired?'"
