(CNSNews.com) - Silly question? You be the judge.
At a CNN town hall Wednesday night, a Joe Biden supporter asked the former vice president, "Sir, what is you plan if Trump loses but refuses to concede?"
(The audience laughed.)
"You ask a rhetorical question. It's a serious question, serious concern," Biden replied.
"Did you ever think in your lifetime, no matter how young or old you are, any person would be able to ask that question and be taken seriously? No, I'm not joking. Our democracy is at risk. Four years of this guy.
(Here the audience applauded.)
Biden continued: "So, the answer is, the way he has treated the military, the way he has dismissed the intelligence community, the way he has absolutely undercut the FBI, the way he has gone after all these -- I have no worry about him being escorted out of the White House.
Following up, CNN's Chris Cuomo told Biden that it's "not unusual" for President Trump to watch CNN town halls: "If the president is watching right now, and he heard that question, what do you think he should know?" CUomo asked.
Biden agreed that Trump was probably listening:
"Mr. President, we have a democratic process. When the voters speak, they are heard, and they have to be responded to. Now, if you're worried about somehow someone interfering in our election, why don't you do something about Russia now?"
Biden didn't explain what "do something about Russia" might involve, and Cuomo did not ask.
