Vice President Biden had a simple response when asked on “The View” Friday if President-elect Donald Trump “understood the gravity” of his late-night tweets.
“It’s not healthy,” Biden said.
The vice president was a vocal critic of the president-elect’s social media habits during throughout the election.
After Trump sent out his infamous string of 3 a.m. tweets to blast former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, Biden mocked him.
“What type of leader awakens at 3 o’clock in the morning?” Biden asked during one of his campaign stops for Hillary Clinton. “I’m being deadly earnest. You don’t have to be a psychologist or psychiatrist, but what kind of leader awakens at 3 o’clock in the morning and tweets Hillary helped ‘disgusting Alicia M. become a U.S. citizen so she could use her in a debate.’”
But the president-elect has defended his practice of using Twitter.
“It’s a modern form of communication. There should be nothing we should be ashamed of,” Trump once said to describe his use of Twitter.
Trump’s incoming White House press secretary has also said that Trump’s tweets determine the day’s news cycle.
“Whatever he tweets, he is going to drive the news,” Sean Spicer said during a panel at the University of Chicago last week.
