Oh he could have. He could have stepped up like all presidential and shiat, taken control of the crisis by implementing all the recommendations of the paid experts in the employ of Uncle Sam.

But no, he had to do some bullying, denounce some fake news, and told us all about the liberal conspiracy to import Chinese virus and make him look bad.

He could have wrapped up the election up last week but he ALWAYS does the exact wrong thing.

Trumps re-election has run head long into his incompetence.

I'm sorry, has author not been paying attention to this past week? Trump will be rage tweeting by Sunday.

We'll see if Joe can channel his greatness when he debated Palin and Ryan.

I'm really not impressed with his lack of focus.  Maybe he should invest in an oxygen tank.

The image of Trump digging a grave is hilarious to me. Streams of makeup laden sweat dripping onto his sausage skin-like golf shirt, his hair plastering to his head. And he'd quit after the fourth shovelful.

Trump* will have trouble coming up with anything to attack Joe on that won't boomerang by multiple factors.
Pervy/gropey? Trump is 100 times worse - a bona fide rapist.
Crook? Biden is a rank amateur - not even in Trump's league.
Old/senile? Give me a break.
The only thing he can do is try to portray him to his base as another communistic, n____er loving liberal.
We'll just have to see if that sticks, and if young people decide to vote.

Trump's better at burying himself.
 
2020-03-19 7:29:56 PM  
And Trump couldn't resist getting his licks in during a coronavirus news briefing Wednesday. The president noted that he was "beating Sleepy Joe Biden by a lot in Florida" and "in other states."

Which comes off as petty, desperate and incredibly unpresidential in the midst of a national healthcare crisis.

But by all means, you do you.

Dark gods, that headline gave me the mental image of Trump on all fours trying to bury his sh#t in the dirt like a cat.

There's nothing in the documentation, but I think my medication may, just may, be interacting with the "for a special/an awful occasion" cider I had stashed.

Instead Trump has created even more awesome ad material for Biden.

Every time Trump has opened his mouth during the past few weeks has been an attack ad in the making.

Actually it's pretty much anytime Trump has opened his mouth at any point in his life.

To that faction of progressives, centrists are worse than Republicans.

Okay, so Joe is no longer quite as sharp as he was. But have you listened to Trump lately? The man cannot read a 4th grade-level document right in front of him without wandering, looking and sounding like your senile great-uncle, and generally making a fool of himself. If his handlers let him on a stage with either Bernie or Joe they need to be lined up and shot for incompetence (speaking metaphorically).

Probably not now.  But I wouldn't doubt if he was planning on skipping out on the whole thing since the Hunter Biden "investigation" isn't gaining too much traction.  We'll see I guess.

To the contrary, those will all be attack points for Trump. They're the wet dream of Team Trump: Biden's being a grabby horndog, a senile codger, and having a corrupt family are GREAT for Trump, because they will equal out in the eyes of the press and most Americans.

At least one or two points were to be the "Benghazi" and especially "Hillary's emails" of the election year. I figure it was Hunter Biden. The NYT, et al, would breathlessly, endlessly report whatever the GOP leaked to them. No one is as corrupt as this. What is Joe Biden hiding?

But now? Might not play out. To be sure, however, those things were super-helpful for Trump.

Well, Emma Goldman, I don't see anyone pretending that he is a political savior but if the fact that he isn't prevents you from voting for him, save yourself a lot of trouble, stfu, and crank that lever for Trump in November. You will be one way or another, directly or indirectly. Joe is in. Everyone else is out. It is officially go-time and 2016 isn't going to happen again. Your ideological purity tests from the left can sit on a doorknob.

Ok?
