Biden Gets On The Trump Train

September 3, 2020 |

I was on Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show last night, talking about how, at his advanced age, Joe Biden has only now realized that protesting and rioting are not the same thing. And no, people weren’t looting the Louis Vuitton store because they needed a loaf of bread. You can see the video here.

The question put before us on the show was, “Is Joe Biden plagiarizing the Trump campaign?” Well, you go with your strengths, and plagiarism was always Joe’s chief strength. After months of making excuses for rioters and looters, and hosting an entire convention where they weren’t even mentioned, suddenly, the Democrats noticed the polls were cratering (Don Lemon let the cat out of the bag: they didn’t care at all about the victims of the riots; it only became a serious problem when it started hurting their election chances.) And suddenly, Joe Biden denounced the violence, just as Trump has been doing all along because it was obviously the right thing to do.

But this is hardly the first or only example of Biden following Trump (since the Democrats have jettisoned the “Me, Too” movement, maybe this will give “me, too” a new meaning.) Biden’s entire plan for dealing with COVID-19 is mostly a lot of stuff that Trump’s already done, back when it was timely enough to actually help. Biden wasn’t going to campaign until after Labor Day until Trump mocked him for hiding (“Ten days is an eternity in Trumpville!”), and suddenly, Joe comes out and makes a speech. Biden wasn’t going to go to Kenosha, but Trump went, and now Biden is going.

It’s an interesting new definition of “leadership”: doing whatever Trump does first.

Biden will be in Kenosha today, but I think that may prove to be a strategic blunder. We all saw the photos of Trump talking to devastated business owners in the rubble of their former businesses. How is it going to look for Joe to stand in the same setting and try to ooze “empathy” when everyone knows he and his Party have spent the past weeks standing by, letting it happen and denying it even existed? If I were one of those business owners, I would definitely ask him why he employs 13 campaign staffers who donated to a fund to bail out the people who burned down and looted my business.

    In my 66 years on this earth and in my beloved country of America I have never felt so helpless and none trusting of my gov't. If Trump doesn't win we are all at the mercy of the democratic/ socialist party. That makes me very sad!

    The Democratic Left does this constantly- says whatever their opponent says to make it seem like they will do what the Right will do. It’s neant to confuse voters and blur the lines of sharp contrast. Recall when Obama stole Sarah Palin’s line about becoming energy independent and repeated, “Drill, baby, drill!”! Then after elected we watch most of the drills in our part if the country stop while he bought oil overseas????

    In my humble opinion there is no way that the majority of voters in this country would not vote for Donald John Trump, but I fear and I used the word fear with trepidation. The voting system is being attacked and we as elders of our country need to speak out about this problem so that we do not go through a election seeing awful results .
