Because "poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids," and "Corn Pop was a bad dude," let's discuss Joe Biden.

Don't forget.


This is going to be rich. The Democrats obviously saw Trump and thought "what if we get someone just like him but nowhere near as entertaining to watch as he screws the country."

It is the only reason I can imagine for them all to suddenly rally behind a candidate that not only seems to be the most "open mouth, insert foot" since Ben Carson, but that also lost California. By a not-insignificant margin too. I'm not sure if there will be a democratic convention this year, but unless it's a contested one and they put the elderly socialist on the ticket, everything else so far is telling me that they are not just giving Trump his second term, they are leaving an incredibly tacky red-and-gold brocaded carpet all the way back to the white house.

Personally I believe it would be the same result with Sanders, but it would at least be a fair fight, two new yorkers with appalling hair and hordes of intense to the point of rage against their enemies (perceived or otherwise) trading blows. The debates alone would be worth it.

If he can convince enough undecided voters* (i.e. people who consider voting for Trump) in enough swing states, he will be in the White House. That’s all that matters.

*who have not been disenfranchised and who actually get/bother to cast their votes

This whole thing is like going to a fancy restaurant where they surprise you: You get all excited and you're sat down at a table, the waiter bring out two covered plates of food and excitedly pulls off the covers to reveal they're both just piles of steaming hot turds.

The waiters look at you expecting you to blown away by the literal shit they've just presented to you. What do you mean you're not happy? You should be overjoyed we're giving you this shit to eat!!!

So yeah, I'm not exactly thrilled by my choices - vote for a terrible bumbling idiot who's raped people or vote for a mediocre centrist who's also raped people!

Fucking democracy man, gotta love it....

Most countries have a thing called the legal process, with judges and lawyers, not trial by the media.

Really odd that people jumping up and down most are Trump supporters.

If it is a serious complaint, how come none of Trump's AGs jumped on this if its true.

I voted for Hillary Clinton in the last presidential election. I have never supported Trump. The other pieces of your argument are specious, because the allegation stems from a 27 year old incident for which there would be either a 10 or 15 year statute of limitations in D.C.

Here is the article that brought this issue mainstream media coverage: https://www.thecut.com/2020/04/the-biden-trap-woman-vice-president.html

No one is jumping up and down, no one really gives a shit. What gripes people is the hypocrisy of the left and the me too movement.
They were ready to crucify kavanaugh because metoo and hastag believe all women, but because its biden and they put all their eggs in the demented old man basket it doesn't matter anymore.

The upside is obviously the death of the metoo movement.

Joe Biden denies he sexually assaulted a former Senate aide, calls on National Archives to release complaint if one exists

William Jeffress, a lawyer who headed the vetting of Biden during Barack Obama’s vice-presidential search, said he oversaw a team of nearly 10 lawyers who spent nearly two months digging through records and interviewing dozens of people about Biden.

He said Reade’s name never came up, so they never spoke with her.

“This kind of complaint — not just Tara Reade, but any kind of complaint about Senator Biden on sexual harassment — never came up,” he said. “We just never had an occasion to interview anyone on an accusation like this because we found no such accusation.”

Until such a time as it is politically convenient to resurrect it, yes. All of this and the abuses of the movement are sadly to the detriment to actual abuse victims.

Not gonna lie i was looking for "tells" in the brief bit of it that I caught..like a nod yes when saying no. ugh.
Before I post further, I just want to start by saying that I lived in PA for nearly 28 years of my life. I fully support voting for Biden in a purple state, but only because he'll be the democratic nominee, and that might help to remove Trump from office.
