Donald Trump is his own worst enemy, shooting himself in both feet over the coronavirus pandemic and the crashing economy. When the pepper ball smoke clears, Joe Biden is standing there, in his blue suit, his blue eyes strong. When sobs of families whose children have been murdered soften and the chants of “Black Lives Matter” grow stronger, Biden is there marching with the people of this great country.
The former vice president under President Barack Obama looks like we think a president should look. Conversely, Donald Trump with his embarrassing combover and nearly six-foot-long ties looks like someone running a New Jersey casino into the ground, because he was.
VP Biden reminded Americans that no one in American history has guaranteed Americans a “happy ending,” but he said the people have cause to hope. Those of us living beyond the historical monuments and buildings need hope:
‘American history isn’t a fairytale with a guaranteed happy ending. But we have the power to write the future we want for this nation. Don’t let anyone tell you differently.’
Then, Biden indicated that Trump was simply clueless as POTUS surrounded himself with police and called the murdered man by police George Floyd, “not a good man.” The VP was right:
‘We’re facing some of the greatest challenges in our history, and Donald Trump is patting himself on the back. He just has no idea what’s really going on in this country. It’s time for him to step out of his bunker and look around at the consequences of his words and actions.’
The man who ran with Barack Obama understands pain after losing not only his wife and small daughter in a car accident, but also his son Beau, the one Biden calls “his heart” to cancer. Pinned to the top of the VP’s Twitter page his tweet urged people to “Please stay safe. Please take care of each other:”
‘We are a nation in pain, but we must not allow this pain to destroy us. We are a nation enraged, but we cannot allow our rage to consume us. Please stay safe. Please take care of each other.’
