Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Tue Aug 13, 2019, 02:35 AM

 

So been watching the talking heads clutch their pearls over Joe Biden's gaffes.

And it hit me. Joe's gaffes still make more sense than anything that comes out of Trump's mouth.

1. That speech Joe gave

 

About us as a Country made Trump look like an impotent fool. No further comment needed.

2. I just find it laughable ...

 

... for anyone to even mention Joe's gaffes less than six weeks after Trump told the nation that the colonists won the Revolutionary War by shutting down the airports.

so much hogwash coming down that pike.

Of Course, the head Idiot isn't some bar for Dems or our Country.. but the pearl clutching pundits could mention all hat stupidity from trump while they're hyperventilating about Joe Biden!

Or is that down the rabbit hole as far as the US m$$$$media is concerned?

6. The talking heads are doing their job

 

Which is to fill airtime between ads for drugs we never knew we needed. They do brush up against journalism from time to time, but it’s pretty rare.

8. Joe's gaffes are mostly innocent

 

Donny's gaffes are racist, sexist, inciting violence, and very unpresidential

9. Opinion: There are more important things to worry about than Biden's gaffes

 




My response to both was the same, as it was when I was asked about the Biden issue on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports.” There is a racist sitting in the Oval Office implementing a white supremacist policy agenda. So, you focus on Biden’s mouth marbles, and I’ll keep my eyes on the prize. The prize being the eviction of Trump from the White House.

As Waldman also wrote, Trump “is waging a reelection campaign based on racism and fear,” not to mention being “the most prolific liar in American political history (he just passed 12,000 false or misleading claims).” And what makes the focus on Biden’s mouth extra aggravating is how it wipes our memories of the moronic things said by this president, as my follower @absolut_irish was so kind to remind Biden’s critics.


Some of these are funny. Some are worthy of a cocked eyebrow. But they are not nearly as consequential as the racist and white supremacist beliefs parroted by Trump and the right-wing echo chamber that found their way into the manifesto of the suspect in the El Paso mass shooting, who told police his target was "Mexicans.” The atmosphere of menace and danger is now indisputable. Your time would be better spent worrying about the shredding of our values, ideals and the rule of law than the flubs of a particular candidate who would put an end to this shameful chapter.

15. What about trump's gaffes?

 

Biden's so-called gaffes will not be an issue in the general election https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/meet-the-press/democrats-battle-each-other-trump-s-greatest-ally-time-n1042191#anchor-Whatabouthisgaffes

But if Biden’s gaffes were substantial news, why wasn’t there the same level of discussion on what President Trump said yesterday in Pennsylvania?

“That’s a lot of people back there for a — like an 11 o’clock speech. That’s a lot of people. (Laughter.) That’s a lot.” (In fact, the speech was after 2:00 pm ET.)

“This Shell petrochemical plant in Beaver County, Pennsylvania — I did very well here. We did very well. How many points did we win by? Does anybody know? I'll tell you. Isn't it, I think, 28 points?
That's a lot.” (Trump won Beaver County by 19 points in 2016.)

“I got sued on a thing called ‘emoluments.’ Emoluments. You ever hear the word? Nobody ever heard of it before. They went back. Now, nobody looks at Obama getting $60 million for a book.” (Obama signed his book deal in 2017, after leaving office.)

Trump’s two and a half years in office definitely have changed the political and media world.

Shouldn’t they also change how we cover gaffes and misstatements?
