but I think that many women hater, fence sitter republicans and independents are worried about Kamala taking office if something should happen to Biden.......

I think alot of Republicans are gonna be hanging on to see who Trump has as his VP..........There is no way in hell Trump will make it another year with his Dementia/Alzheimers progressing as it has been..............(If his Kentucky Fried Chicken, McDonalds, and Aderall doesn't get him first)......

As crazy as he is acting, he may insist on Ivanka or Jared as his VP...............

if he gets a second term. But good news, the latest poll has Biden up dramatically by 11 points with independents.

It's sinking in that trump's convictions, and his obvious menatal decline is not what many want in the WH.

9. For undecided voters. I offer David Sedaris' analogy

“To put [undecided voters] in perspective, I think of being on an airplane.

The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. ‘Can I interest you in the chicken?’ she asks. ‘Or would you prefer the platter of sh*t with bits of broken glass in it?’

The undecided voter asks, “How is the chicken cooked?”

11. Dumpy says he's done more for "black people" than any POTUS in history besides Lincoln.

From 2020:

- Mr. President, do you believe that justice was served in the Breonna Taylor case in Kentucky? And what is your message to the Black community who believe that perhaps justice was not served by the decision that was rendered by the grand jury in Kentucky?

DONALD TRUMP: Well, my message is that I love the Black community and I've done more for the Black community than any other president, and I say with the possible exception of Abraham Lincoln, and I mean that, with opportunity zones, and with criminal justice reform, with prison reform, with what we've done for historically Black universities, colleges, schools, what we've done. It's nobody's done more. Abraham Lincoln, let's give him the nod, but beyond that, nobody's done more. I love the Black community.

BTW, Biden was the one that signed and made Juneteenth a federal holiday.


https://apnews.com/article/biden-juneteenth-federal-holiday-9bb62a3448376e05d87ac79cf27970d2

From 2021:

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden signed legislation Thursday establishing a new federal holiday commemorating the end of slavery, saying he believes it will go down as one of the greatest honors he has as president.

Biden signed into law a bill to make Juneteenth, or June 19, the 12th federal holiday. The House voted 415-14 on Wednesday to send the bill to Biden, while the Senate passed the bill unanimously the day before.

.....

Juneteenth commemorates June 19, 1865, when Union soldiers brought the news of freedom to enslaved Black people in Galveston, Texas — two months after the Confederacy had surrendered. That was also about 2 1/2 years after the Emancipation Proclamation freed slaves in the Southern states.

Can't wait for the "debate". We're going to get a very clear picture of the choice Americans get to make.
