Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Thu Dec 5, 2019, 08:05 PM

 

Want to see how to handle a heckler? Just watch President Obama.

No insults. No challenges of physical strength. Stays on message. Unites the audience. This is what leadership looks like.

Actually, toxic white masculinity is ugly on any candidate. I am not impressed by the sense of entitlement and the way Joe is taking politics personally. I am both surprised and disappointed by the defense and celebration of it I see coming from supporters. While he lives with a unique sense of loss and grief, Biden has been in politics long enough to know better. He doesn't have to read every piece of hate mail and respond with an emotional reaction. The same goes for hecklers.

Remember when one kid not too long ago was making faces behind IQ45 (not sure if he was responding to the "brilliant statements" or what he was seeing from where he was sitting ) but there was a "swat team" that moved in and removed him so the the "background" was "sincere MAGA freaks!"

Seriously, keep that in mind and watch the first clip again..........................
