Honestly, I'm sort of surprised at how well the Biden campaign is handling it. It's a 180-degree change from Hillary's head-in-the-clouds approach.

As someone put it the other week, we've never before seen a campaign that's 100% negative with zero policy goals for the future.  A few in the 19th century were one or other other, but not both.

They literally have no platform beyond "support President Trump." It's astonishing.

As a super voter in PA I get a ton of political junk mail. Biden's crap has clear policy positions while Trumps amount to 'Biden is going to raise your taxes' or 'Biden will let black people burn your city'. That's it. Nothing to back it up, at all. Just, 'the other guy will ruin everything because reasons.'

Way back in the day, there were rumors that Warren G. Harding had a black ancestor that were spread by his opponent. Though the fact that actual proof of that rumor would've probably sunk his campaign says more about society at the time than anything else.

That's enough for republican voters.  They have been conditioned for decades to eat shiat and be happy with it.  What else do they need to hear?  They know that the GOP will protect and serve the wealthy and hurt minorities.  Most republican voters are happy to be incidental casualties of that.

It's the same as 2016. I went to their website, out of curiosity, to compare with Clinton's website. It was literally one page with a donation button. They had no platform, no policies, no anything else. Their whole spoken campaign was that the world was on fire, Obama and everyone else in government was an idiot, and lock her up.

There policy goal:  Make America Great Again.  What more do you need?

I asked a friend once what his policies will be for 2020 they just said  "Why don't you look it up? It's on there website"    They are using the same policy goal that they used in 2016.

trump trying to trash Biden as "very rich" off ill-gotten gains is laughable.  Isn't it funny how rightwing types swear up and down that "boot straps and hard work made America!" yet every single time they choose to elect trust fund babies who've never broken a sweat doing an honest day's work in their lives. Then, they view self-made men/women of humble origins with distrust and contempt, sure they gamed the system or somehow "stole" something to get where they are.

"Trump got himself impeached by trying to blackmail Ukrainian officials into accusing Biden and his son Hunter of wrongdoing."

Joe Biden Brags about getting Ukranian Prosecutor Fired
Youtube UXA--dj2-CY


"Then Giuliani turned over to the New York Post the supposed contents of a laptop supposedly belonging to Hunter. The alleged emails have never been authenticated..."

When was the Steele Dossier authenticated / verified and by whom? Sleazy? Thy name is Schiff.

"The scandal is not anything that Joe Biden did. It is that Trump is running what may be the sleaziest presidential campaign since the notorious election of 1800 - or possibly ever."

By bringing up Hunter's laptop's contents? Which ironically enough, justified Trump's comments to the Ukraine president. The Left is just counting on the obedient MSM to obfuscate it long enough for Ol' Joe to win the presidency, knowing full well the revelations will continue on well past November.

It's the democrats' perfect plan: They know this dirt is real and if Joe is elected, the democrats can count on the republicans to impeach hime based on it which allows the democrats to do what everyone knows they're going to anyway which is get rid of Biden the stalking horse, and hand the presidency to Harris.

So your argument is "the pee tape isn't real, therefore Trump is a great president?"

Even if you hold Trump up to his own standards and platform (and ignore the absolute repugnace of both), he's an absolute failure. He didn't repeal or replace Obamacare, only five original miles of the wall was built, Mexico didn't pay, and his own FBI couldn't find any wrongdoing by Hillary Clinton. I spent plenty of time in Trumpworld four years ago, and I saw how all this nonsense petered out. Hell, at least Clinton had her emails and Benghazi for you loons to rave about. What you have with Hunter Biden-gate is the most laughable grasping at straws ever.

Moreover, even if every word of it is true and Biden is corrupt, you need only look at the Trump family to see who makes them look like rank amateurs. Drain the swamp indeed.

Assuming Trump has the balls to show at Biden's inauguration, when he begins to leave after the swearing in, I hope the crowd starts chanting, "Lock him up, lock him ...".  But, he won't be there. He'll either leave early for Mar a Lago crying, or he'll be being carried out of the White House in a cross-armed pout by SS & US Marshals & placed on the curb next to his gilded potty.

Three things, WaPo.
1st. There ain't no maybe about it.
2nd. It aint just Trump the entire GOP are running the sleaziest election in US history.
3rd. "Pseudo-scandals"? So close. They are deliberately manufactured "scandals" concocted between GOP politicians and their media propagandists designed to keep the GOP base thinking the Dems are the corrupt ones instead of themselves. And you assholes play along like dopes every time at least up until Rudy's recent clusterf**k.
