On Thursday, a cringeworthy event took place in Wilmington, Delaware. For the first time, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris appeared side-by-side as the Democratic ticket for president and vice president. And, as expected, it was indeed a cringe-fest full of typical Democratic mistruths, virtue-signaling, and all-around discomfort.
The event took place in a school gym in front of reporters without the large crowd of supporters that usually would accompany the announcement of a presidential ticket. Although the crowd size was restricted because of social distancing concerns, an empty gym is an apt metaphor for their campaign. Both Biden and Harris talk a big game but are willing to sell their souls to reach the highest office in the land.
Biden is no longer moderate Joe. He has thrown in with the most radically Left elements of the party and now he has teamed up with a radically Left senator from the most Left-leaning state in the union—California. The duo is representing the most extreme major party in American history, and that was on full display Thursday.
The roughly half-hour announcement began with Joe Biden introducing Harris and listing his reason for selecting her as his running mate. Predictably, it didn’t take long for Biden to pivot to attacking the “Big Bad Orange Man.” He once again lied about what Trump said in the wake of the Charlottesville riots a couple of years back by claiming that Trump believed that the White Supremacist mob were “good people.” Trump was merely referring to those on both sides of the debate about whether or not a statue to Robert E. Lee should be removed in the city. The false claim has been debunked countless times, but the Left keeps running with it.
Biden has premised his campaign on the fact that he will “restore the soul of America,” saying that he is the one who will restore normalcy to our land. That melodramatic line of attack is built on a faulty premise that Trump is responsible for the lawlessness and chaos in this country. It isn’t Donald Trump who has called for streets to be looted and pillaged. It is the radical Left mob that is given cover by the Democratic Party and their mainstream media allies. Donald Trump, on the other hand, is one of the few people working against it.
Biden said, “Is anyone surprised Donald Trump has a problem with a strong woman or strong women across the board? Kamala Harris has had your back, and now we have to have her back. She’s going to stand with me in this campaign. And all of us are going to stand up for her.”
After spewing this garbage, Biden turned the mic over to the woman of the hour. Senator Harris began her acceptance speech by lauding Biden’s late son, Beau, who worked with Harris on cases when both were state attorneys general. It was a touching moment when Harris talked about how Beau spoke highly of the honorable man that was his father. On the surface, the story was touching, but then one wakes up and must think: Why did Kamala Harris essentially call Biden a racist sexual assaulter during the campaign but has now accepted his offer to join the ticket?
Answer: Because Kamala Harris is a conniving, deceitful, Machiavellian politician who will lie about anything to attain power. She is the most dangerous type of politician.
Harris also attacked President Trump’s leadership, saying “America is crying out for leadership, yet we have a president who cares more about himself than the people who elected him. A president who is making every challenge we face even more difficult to solve.”
Harris then went on to lie about President Trump’s record by claiming that he inherited a booming economy from Obama and Biden before running it into the ground. Of course, she neglected to mention that there is a thing called the coronavirus pandemic that has shut down the world economy, and it wasn’t President Trump’s decision. She might want to look into that.
Furthermore, she blamed Trump for the deaths of over 150,000 Americans to COVID-19, despite the fact that Trump shut down air travel from China early on—and was called Xenophobic by Joe Biden—and got the states all the PPE’s, Ventilators, and tests they needed. Apparently, she remembers COVID when discussing deaths, but not when discussing economics.
The lies continued throughout her brief address. The Biden-Harris ticket’s first appearance together was a dud, however, their admirers in the mainstream media will say otherwise. They are so predictable, and so are Biden and Harris…predictably bad!
