Team Trump assails 'Phony Kamala' while privately acknowledging her appeal

Politico

Trump on Tuesday described Harris as his No. 1 choice for Biden’s running mate, weeks after saying “I think she’d be a fine choice.”

But he and his aides focused their line of attack through the same lens they’ve used on other potential running mates, perhaps indicating after months of research on Harris they don’t have much else to criticize.

Many in Trump’s orbit had hoped Biden would tap Susan Rice, a former ambassador to the United Nations, who they had thought could fire up his MAGA base. Despite their eagerness for her, Rice being selected likely wouldn’t have helped Trump attract the independent voters his team has been trying to win over for years.

With less than three months until the election, Trump is lagging behind Biden in most national polls and battleground states. His standing has even fallen in traditionally red states as the coronavirus pandemic has dragged on.

Republicans, who have found little success in tarnishing Biden, will now try to damage Harris by describing her as a failed presidential candidate who didn’t generate excitement in her own party. Most of Trump’s attention on Harris during the Democratic primary was about her performance in the race, and he returned to that theme Tuesday at the White House to recall her poor showing in the campaign.

2. Well,

Taunting your opponents is such a brilliant and advanced strategy, huh? It has real substance, like rolled boogers or a fresh loogie on the tongue. Classy.

They will probably fart in Biden and Harris' general direction, too. You just wait and see.
