Some say that Joe Biden, just like Hillary Clinton, would lose to Trump in the upcoming election, and they might be right. That is if Biden would enter the fight against Trump by himself without a really strong team behind him. Well, that is not going to happen as Biden won’t be alone but will have a very powerful team around him.
Trump will find himself running against this very knowledgeable, highly experienced team comprised of Biden, Barack Obama, Sen. Bernie Sanders, and Michael Bloomberg, former candidate for the Democratic nomination.
We can refer to Biden’s associates on this team as political weapons. They will be very visible and extremely vocal all over the media and will make Trump have to go on the defensive when they remind Americans of how very terribly he has conducted his presidency; how he has made racist and misogynistic statements, how he has divided the nation, and how he is trying to make the Rule of Law and the U.S. Constitution irrelevant.
President Obama, in particular, will play a major role in Joe Biden’s campaign and will be a major asset in getting him elected in the upcoming November elections. The Biden campaign needs a jump start, a shot in the arm, and Obama will ignite a Biden surge leading to victory.
The old, unwritten word is that a former president should remain silent on current governmental affairs, not to criticize or question what a current president or his administration is doing. That old word is now going out the door as Obama shows the American people why this president must be replaced.
Trump certainly doesn’t know it, but while he will be debating Biden on stage he will also be forced to debate Obama in the national media all over this country, and he will wish he were anywhere else but up against Obama.
And there is a secret weapon, Michelle Obama, who will be waiting in the wings until she is called upon to enter into Biden’s campaign as another powerful voice. She is very intelligent, very eloquent, and an African American woman. Can you imagine how many, many Americans, white, black, Hispanic, and others she will attract to Biden?
This from Politico.com: “Donald Trump has made clear he will attack Joe Biden unmercifully to ensure the election is a choice between him and Joe Biden — rather than an up-or-down vote on the president’s handling of the coronavirus.”
Oh, really? There is no way that Trump can try to run away from the horrible job he has done in responding to the coronavirus threat and the terrible leadership that he has shown. It has been one of the reasons why there was a shortage of PPE equipment for medical personnel, his handling of the development of testing was very bad, and the way he failed to coordinate and work closely with governors has been just plain atrocious.
He can attack Biden all he wants but it will be nothing compared to what he is going to get in return when he gets battered and beaten in the general media and, especially, TV. There will be an endless array of commercials featuring “The Donald” which will remind people of much of his very bizarre behavior over many years and during his presidency.
They will show him as the racist he is and a man who has very serious emotional problems. There will be unlimited funds for these commercials provided by mega-billionaire Michael Bloomberg.
Here are some examples of the kind of commercials that will be launched all over America. They will all be geared to show the American people just why he is unfit to be president.
*The Access Hollywood video that shows Trump and Billy Bush standing next to a bus. Trump talks about women and his “grab them by the p—sy” slur. He says, “You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them, it’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything. grab them by the pu–sy. You can do anything.”
*The Washington Post tracking of Trump lies and misinformation since he assumed the presidency, which now totals 18,000. It will portray Trump as a pathological liar, one who can tell lies throughout the day, every day, non-stop. He can constantly lie and misinform even during this pandemic, at a time when he should be showing great leadership to earn the trust of the people.
*Then there was Trump and Putin at Helsinki. After the summit, at a news session with reporters, one of them asked Trump if he believed his own intelligence agencies or the Russian president relative to allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Trump famously said, “President Putin says it’s not Russia, I don’t see any reason why it would be.”
*At one of his rallies in 2016, a reporter with a speech disability, Serge Kovaleski, made a point about something Trump did after the 911 disaster, Trump replied, calling Kovaleski “a nice reporter,” He then proceeded to mimic him by flopping his right arm around with his hand at a twisted angle and a weird look on his face. He then said: “Now, the poor guy, you’ve got to see this guy: ‘Uhh, I don’t know what I said. Uhh, I don’t remember,’ he’s going like ‘I don’t remember.”
*Stormy Daniels, Trump’s porn star girlfriend: documents provided by the FBI gave a detailed account of how Trump tried to cover up the fact that that he paid $130,000 to this porn star to prevent her from initiating a controversy over her “relationship” with him. Trump, somehow, managed to keep the full details from being divulged.
*On July 27, 2016, the nation heard Trump call upon a foreign power and a supposed enemy of the U.S., Russia, to produce thousands of Hillary Clinton’s missing emails. Here’s what he said: “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Then he added, “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by the U.S. media.” Isn’t that a case of colluding with a foreign power that is a continuing threat to the United States?
These suggested commercials are just the tip of the iceberg in that there will be an endless number appearing on your favorite TV channels before very long. And they will be powerful enough to sink Trump’s political ship.
Bloomberg won’t be a valuable asset to Biden only because he can easily fund those commercials. During his presidential campaign, Bloomberg had 2,400 staffers working in 43 states. With his unlimited funds, I’m sure he would turn most of them over to Biden and that will be a big plus.
With Bernie Sanders solidly behind him, Biden will connect with millions of Bernie’s army of many millions of progressive followers and that will be a terrific boost for him. You can bet that Bernie will be all over this country campaigning for him. Because of the coronavirus millions of Americans lost their jobs and their health insurance. That will give Sanders a much better case for developing some type of universal health care system, and he will be able to convince Biden to accept this as something that must happen.
It will be so interesting and very exciting to watch this formidable team in action. Many, many Americans will be tuning into their radios and TV channels to listen to what they say about Trump to take him down and out. I doubt that Trump will be one of them.
Bad Breaking News—for Trump: before this team can even get started a Quinnipiac poll just out found that voters supported Biden over Trump 50%-39%. The poll further indicates that voters’ trust and confidence in Trump is rapidly waning. A big problem for him is that these voters think that he has failed to handle the coronavirus crisis competently. And that is really bad news for Trump.
