Just cause you got the monkey off of your back doesn’t mean that the circus has left town George Carlin
Some days it just falls into your lap. I mean it. These days, there are times when I get up in the morning, check the bladder, sit down and turn on the TV, and then just sit back and watch the almost balletic symmetry of the dance that unfolds before me.
This is one of those days. It wasn’t all that long ago, when Trump was busy fumbling his way through fucked up rallies, that he ridiculed Joe Biden’s absence from the trail, just putting out statements from his basement. As I said in the title, be careful what you ask for, fool! These days Trump wishes that Biden would just shut the fuck up!
This morning Joe Biden came out and gave a speech, outlining his plan for the eventual recovery of the American economy from the nightmare that Trump has wrought. He slammed Trump not only for his incompetence, but also for just giving up on the problem. And best yet, he made the clear and compelling case that their own president really doesn’t care how many of then or their children die, just so long as Trump gets reelected. Biden had an actual plan, with steps, and you know, like facts and stuff.
And in about a half hour, His Lowness will step behind the podium in the White House briefing room, and five a press conference on the coronavirus. One of what he plans on being daily briefings from here on out. And all I can do is to sit back, shake my head in wonderment, and say to myself, You know? There really must be something to this Divine Intervention stuff.
In the morning, you have a guy who actually looks and acts like a President walk out and giving a calm, coherent, passionate speech about beating and recovering from the coronavirus, and couple of hours later, out walks some slob in a baggy ass, off the rack suit, to give a press conference on the same damn subject, one of which he is abysmally ignorant. Biden wants to test every day care enter to ensure that parents feel confident in leaving their children to go to work, and Trump wants people to inject fucking Clorox into their veins.
These visual contrasts are killing Trump. Even his own base supporters, when discussing Trump, say that their number one beef with Glorious Bleater is that they wish that he would put down the fucking phone and do the job! And here’s Joe Biden, whom most people under 50 have known their entire lives in politics, looking like he’s already won the election, and can’t wait to get started, and there’s Trump, having Twitter tantrums, and swearing the virus will just disappear! These voters don’t actually have to vote for Biden, if he can just depress then enough to stay home, the effect is the same.
Biden can’t do it much better than this. He doesn’t have to be omnipresent, especially if Trump is going to keep making a fool out of himself a minimum of five days a week. Just pick something Trump is currently fucking up, put together a cogent, intelligent counterpoint, and give the speech. Within a couple of hours, Trump is going to step in front of the microphones, and do Biden’s job for him.
Trump is incapable of turning this around. His own Governors are turning against him, and ordering steps that directly contradict Trump’s plans for reopening the economy. He lives in a self induced delusion, and wouldn’t listen to anyone who tries to correct him. Biden doesn’t need to get into the mosh pit with Trump. The Lincoln Project and Republicans Voters Against Trump are already doing the dirty work. Keep the advertising positive and uplifting, and jeep providing positive plans and visions to Trump’s incoherent positions. We are 105 days from a return to normalcy in this country. Pedal to the metal, and get it done.
