Why are the Democrats driving me into the arms of Trump? I don't want to go there.

I don't want an authoritarian demagogue. You'd think that wouldn't be asking much.

But, apparently, it is.

Is Joe Biden going to be just like Donald Trump? Why do I want to vote for him again? He's not Trump? But he's just as bad!???? WTF!???

Sorry... Sorry. I should edit that down. But I want to relate my frustration with this. All Biden has to do to win this is be conciliatory, show that you love the nation, and kick back and relax as Trump kills himself either literally or figuratively. Doesn't matter, dead is dead. That's it. That's all Biden has to do.

But, evidently, that's going to be a CHALLENGE.

I'm voting this November. The big question is, will it be FOR Biden? Or is it going to be for some stupid lame ass 3rd party loser Lolbertarian? Democrats: You're going to need every vote you can get. This isn't how you do it.

No, and that is a silly question.

I know, I get it. Everyone prefers the authoritarian that has a boot wrapped around their neck that fits most comfortably.

Evidently, I "ain't black enough"? I mean, is this a challenge? I'll lose, since I'm barely black.

It's not that the answer isn't casually racist. It is. It's that it's divisive. If I want divisive, I could just as easily vote for Trump and at least get massive focus on the Economy instead of whatever the fark Biden is going to give away.

Don't care. Still voting for Biden.

Biden should not debate Trump.  He'll fumble something, Trump will jump on it, and the media will play that exchange over and over.

I'm glad they quoted Lindsey Graham's reaction to this.  If anyone has their finger on the pulse of the African-American community, it's him.

exactly. you can laugh all you want about only single digit percent of black people are gonna vote for Trump. if black people don't vote at all because you insist you are owed their vote without offering anything, then you get 2016 again.

Trump says dumb shiat and will get us all killed and leave America a smoking pile of rubble.

Biden says dumb shiat and will generally be alright as president.

Trump's focus on the economy is like lighting a gas station on fire. Whole lotta explosion but it doesn't last very long. Some Bad Thing, like Covid, comes along and all of a sudden we're doomed.

Ow! That was my feelings!: Biden should not debate Trump.  He'll fumble something, Trump will jump on it, and the media will play that exchange over and over.


The only reason he shouldn't debate Trump is because of the bullshiat perfection that Democrats require.  Whatever stupid thing Biden says, Trump has said 1,000,000 times worse about that exact subject.  But Biden (or whatever Dem they run up) are punished for it while Trump is rewarded for it.

Oh great..l apparently Biden wants to run as Hillary...

It isn't a debate.  If you are black, or even think of yourself for caring about anyone who is, Trump is the last person you should be voting for.  I would also add Brown, White, Purple, Green, etc.  Personally, however, I might just omit the orange...

He's not exactly wrong, but the phrasing could use work.

Then again, rural whites haven't gone for a Democrat since Carter was in office, so I don't necessarily think bluntness is a bad thing in this case.

Don't care.  Still voting for him.

Trump is an existential threat to this country and Joe Biden is the only person who has a realistic chance of removing him.

Well, you're white and voting for the white supremacist, so there's that. Things like disparaging brown people and complaining of a white genocide works for you, why shouldn't it work the other way?

He did offer something, he threatened them that they weren't really black if they don't do what he says

On one hand, you have Joe Biden who sometimes says stupid shiat.  On the other hand, you have Donald Trump who tacitly encourages his supporters to do this.

Or, pretty much like any right winger commenting on this, Biden will fumble something easy and in an effort to spike the ball Trump will say something worse.

Joe Biden's intolerance of dissent, especially conservative dissent is bewildering, disgusting, Trump-like and unAmerican.

He needs to knock off getting triggered, I don't want to worry about his temperament, I want to be able to cast a vote I can be proud of. Completely.

Joe Biden is making it hard for me to convince new voters he's worth it.

Whatever. Still going to vote for him when the alternative is four more years of Trump.
