Excellent point as I have not seen Trump reaching out to any frontline medical personnel involved in COVID-19 patient care.

"Reaching out" is correct for past tense.

But, I could be wrong. 😊

Saying thank you doesn't come naturally to the guy supposedly in charge, and by thank you I don't mean handing out $100 tips, as I've heard he has done in the past, that's easy when you have access to other people's money like he does. To actually take the time, look someone in  the eye, and tell them they're appreciated is  a lot more important and very much more personal.

har har.  Joe Biden hugs women.  Pervert.  Remember the time he raw-dogged a porn star while his wife was recovering from labor, then paid her $130K to STFU?  Pervert Biden.

I don't remember this happening, but since you have planted the seed with a course of imagined events that can be suitably adjusted and modified to fit my worldview, you have no idea how angry I am to learn about this.  Thank you for posting it.  Pervert Biden™ needs to resign immediately.

Trump has to pat himself on the back, no one is giving him enough credit for all the good work he is doing, while those lazy nurses are sucking up all the glory.

Do you know I heard that those nurses actually try to limit the number of times they go in to see the patients.  They are lucky if they see their nurses twice a shift.  The nurses are too busy with their card games back at the nurses' station.

You don't hear them coming up with innovative new treatments, they say "not my job, and go back to their card game."  It's not Trump's job either, but he's not afraid to take on the extra work, if it helps the American people.  All he wants is someone to say "Sir, sir you are doing a great job."

People who were horrified that Trump said the words "grab 'em by the pussy" should be apoplectic to learn that Joe Biden actually did grab Tara Reade by the pussy.  And she's pressing charges.

He bragged about being a sexual predator, people were not offended by the word pussy, or the fact that a man might actually enjoy grabbing a woman there.  It was that he made it very clear that the woman in question did not want to be grabbed and he used his position of authority to do it anyway.

Who was the woman in question that Trump talked about?  Because it sounded like goofy locker room braggadocio to me.

The woman in question who Joe Biden allegedly actually stuck his finger into her vagina is Tara Reade.  She made it very clear that she did not want to be digitally violated, she told others about it at the time, she has bravely come forward about it and she has filed a lawsuit against Joe Biden.

So you didn't vote for Trump because he is a sexual predator?  Or are you very selective in your outrage?  How about when he cheated on his wife with a porn star, did that bother you?

Also relevant here is that Tara Reade:

1) expressed universally positive attitudes towards Biden until 2019,

2) has changed her story about what happened,

3) believes she is engaged to be married to Vladimir Putin,

4) has deleted social media posts expressing bizarrely positive views about Russia and Putin at a time when Russia is waging information war on the United States on behalf of Donald Trump and the Republican Party,

5) changed her attitude towards Biden at the same time she started expressing support for Bernie Sanders.

And here's how far the Fascists have fallen. Even if every word that Tara Reade says is true, Biden is still the vastly preferable candidate. And we can always impeach Biden, and then we'll have an actual progressive in the White House.

Trump bragged he barged into changing rooms full of naked 15 year old girls, and there's credible accusations that he has raped women and children.

For many of the people who vote for him (including some farkers), that's one of the things they like about him.

They're desperate. Biden is one of the most thoroughly vetted, decent men in US politics. He's lived for decades in the public eye with no serious scandals. He has never even been accused of cheating on his wife.

He's a terrific contrast to the right's Nihilist-in-Chief.

For all his faults, Biden has demonstrated a real capacity for empathy and emotion.  He's made a few real tearjerker speeches and interviews over the years.  Turnip has never shown any positive emotions in a public setting - he seems to be limited to anger, hate, smugness, and amphetamine withdrawal.

js34603: Spicy take. It's definitely time to stop believing all women.


Certainly many faux-feminist Twitter accounts operated by right-wingers or Russian operatives, and even a handful of real feminists have said "believe all women." I never have, nor do I believe this idiotic mindset has wide support on the left.

The left's real attitude comes closer to "don't use flagrantly misogynistic stereotypes to discredit accusers." An attitude which does contrast with the right's attitude of "disbelieve all lying whores accusing Republicans, while treating as gospel truth all accusations by saintly virgins against Democrats."

Lindsey Graham and Donald Trump himself acknowledged that Dr. Ford's testimony against Kavanaugh was "credible." And the sheer number of women who have corroborated Trump's boasts about his sexual assaults diminishes the plausibility of any claim that they're all manufactured.

By contrast, even on the slim chance Tara Reade is telling the truth, she is clearly delusional. As others have pointed out, those on the right who use her as a pawn are doing far more harm to her than anyone on the left challenging her credibility.

js34603: I mean even if he did stick his fingers in his employees against their will, he's still better than Trump!


I mean, if you have two men accused of doing that, and one of them bragged on camera about doing it in a way that implied he's done it numerous times, and also had a bunch of credible rape-rape allegations, bragged about going backstage at teen pageants when the contestants are naked, was buddy-buddy with Epstein, and raw-dogged some porn stars while married with a newborn, then paid them off to keep schtum, and the other has never had a sex scandal at all, has no other accusations (remember, from Weinstein, Spacey, Epstein, Trump, Kavanaugh, and many other offenders, they never just assault one woman - there's either talk before accusations come out, or other accusers come forward once the first does) and has publicly worked to end sexual assault...

Yes.  Yes one of them is better.

Nobody is being clear enough here:
Tara Reade's claims deserve to be heard and examined the same as any potential victim.  We /welcome/ a nonpartisan law enforcement investigation, because either it will be shown likely false and you'll shut up, or it will be shown to be likely true and Biden will have to drop out and we'll get a candidate that we really like, and a good candidate will clean Trump's clock to the tune of 10%+.

"reaching out" to a hard working medical professional is eyewash.  What he needs to be doing, or signaling, or laying groundwork is with legislators to increase funding and resources for containment and vaccination.  His emoting isn't gong to cure jack spit.

That ship has sailed. Trump has already established sexual assault is not a barrier to holding political office. All we really need to know is if Biden can do the job and do it better than Trump. The answer is yes. He hasn't even been elected yet and he's doing a better job.

Seriously f*ck off with this faux outrage over Biden's alleged sexual misconduct.

Where was that outrage when Trump was running for office? Where is it now?
