Trump literally retweeted a video that claimed “the only good democrat is a dead democrat.” This is the sad world we live in

And this has what to do with what Mr. Biden said about 10 to 15 percent of the population being really bad people?

Perhaps you should post your response in the Trump's hit and misses thread?

You are smart enough to know what the point is that I’m making. If you think Biden is an idiot for deriding 10-15% of the country, yet are silent when trump agrees with the idea that half the country is better dead than alive, it comes across quite hypocritical.

The broader point is that the pearl clutching at Biden’s comment shouldn’t influence a potential voter in the age of trump since he says idiotic garbage like this daily.

Mr. Trump is bombastic and has been the biggest troll in the world since the beginning of 2016.

The salient point is that Mr. Biden is making the EXACT same mistake as Mrs. Clinton. Alienating a large portion of the electorate. History tells us how that worked out for Mrs. Clinton.

I’m sorry, but I’ve yet to see a Dem come out and say why Biden would make a good president. Any liberal on here want to take a stab at it? And because he is not Trump is not an answer.

Which brings us to this (and goes beyond the obvious fact that he's a dumb cluck). Let the lame excuses begin.

I'm sorry - why did you think Trump would make a good Prez?

Because he wasn't Hillary?

Not really. Mr. Trump only became world class in 2016.

Realistically, there's no chance Trump doesn't get reelected, right?

Experience. I think American's want predictability vs volatility. But, Biden is gonna have to distance himself from any Socialism or extreme liberalism. And perhaps have several cups of coffee

Before Trump's presidency, before his debates, what were you saying would make him a good president?

He also "loves driving & speed"

Quoting this again because when one adds the 10-15 percent of deplorables to the 12 or 13 percent of blacks who may or may not be black enough now you see that he's potentially alienated 22-28 percent of the population. Not bad for a week of two worth of press conferences!!

I do think Trumps flavor of "communal nationalism" makes more space for everyone to have a seat at the table of capitalism, intended or unintended we'll never know .

I think it does. Witness the increase in persons participating in the economy, record low unemployment, etc., prior to VOVID-19. Indeed, increases that have been largely unprecedented...AND without starting a war every 10 to 12 months. Pretty damn incredible.

Lastly, I believe that this economy has enough elasticity to rebound much faster than the pundits will predict. I'll go out on a limb, once again, and say that Mr. Trump will win in 2020.

Trump or Biden. It's Sophie's Choice all over again.

Trump deserves no credit for any economic anything. He's an idiot, which has been roundly demonstrated these past few months. His tax break was a handout to corporate execs, besides which it wasn't really his it was Mitch's. What the country needed then, and still does now, is a really really REALLY robust infrastructure bill. If the Dems had a lick of sense they would have formulated at least part of the COVID relief money around something like beefing up the electrical grid or pushing fast hardwire out to the edges of Montana. But they're about as big a bunch of idiots as the Pubs.

During the Trump presidency my bank account grew. Would it have grown under Hillary, we'll never know. But I'll be damned if Trump will get any credit for it.

There is a segment of society -- a large segment, divided among white, black, Hispanic, you name it -- that is not being served by Trump, Nancy, COVID bailouts, or much of anything else lately. Pretty much since Reagan if you ask me, but I'm a crotchety old coot. Biden is closest to tapping into that base.

But I expect another 4 years of Trump. Nixon won in '72 in spite of 'Nam. Shrub won in '04, in spite of Iraq. SARS-CoV-2 gave Trump his war. We tend not to change horses midstream.

As I've pointed out many times on this forum the divide is between private/individual owners vs those in the public sector.
