Is it just me, or is this the creepiest campaign announcement video ever?
I mean, the music right at the very beginning sounds like what you hear in a horror flick.
I get why he’s using Charlottesville as his “I’m gonna pull emotions out of you” schtick, but he called Antifa “courageous,” y’all. That is literally every shade of f*cked up. And people with Actual Brains know this. It takes half a second to google story upon story of Antifa being violent thugs to know that “courage” isn’t the proper word to describe that group of misfits.
Not to mention the nonsense he pulls with the Trump quote about “fine people on both sides.” How many times does that have to be contextualized before people like Joe Biden finally understand that it’s all complete BS, that it doesn’t do justice to what Trump’s message was, and that politicizing Charlottesville is just a disgusting thing to do?
The most telling thing about Joe’s candidacy for EVERYONE should be that Barack Obama isn’t endorsing him. Granted, so far it appears that Obama won’t endorse ANYONE specific in the primaries, but the fact that Joe was his VP for 8 years should mean that an endorsement is a given. That it’s not should give Democrats serious pause.
Also, have we mentioned that Joe and Bernie are old? From York’s column:
” For those who respond, “Well, what about Trump?” remember: If the president serves two terms, he will leave the White House at 78, the oldest ever in office. But that is the age Biden would begin his presidency. And Sanders is a year older.”
This is going to be the most fascinating primary season to watch in the history of ever. Biden, who is for all intents and purposes a centrist (mostly because he doesn’t really stand for anything and only ever takes a position on something when he finds it politically expedient to do so), will really struggle to capture the Bernie crowd, who are rabidly progressive and have no tolerance for anyone who is remotely to the right of, say, Ilhan Omar. But Bernie (or the other progressive weirdos running) will struggle capturing middle America in a general election.
Joe Biden has lots of skeletons rattling in that closet – from calling Obama “clean and articulate” to denigrating Indian Americans by saying you can’t go to a 7-11 or Dunkin’ Donuts without a slight Indian accent, to not knowing how to spell “job,” to plagiarizing, to smelling unsuspecting women’s hair. But sure – use out-of-context quotes of Trump to make your case for why you should be president, Joe. Great plan.
Buckle up, y’all. It’s going to be a gloriously bumpy ride.
