Biden: Doing the correct thing to keep people safe. This is in stark contrast to super-spreader Trump.

20 ( +27 / -7 )

Covid45 continues to damage the country in every way possible. Trump's many failures will be his legacy.

19 ( +25 / -6 )

I wish both Biden and Harris safety and do not want them to catch COVID-19. I do find the timing, however, rather inconvenient, especially considering the bombshell dropped by the post.

-16 ( +5 / -21 )

Why would a news story about a fake hard drive with fake emails be any reason for the Democrats to change their compaign?

Suspension/cancellation could become a smart campaign strategy. You can gain more by doing less; speaking less, contacting less, showing-off less, tweeting less, barking "Fake!" less .... you now see who is doing the other way :P

Bombshell? I'm more concerned about Trump's tax returns than photos of Biden's son.

Look, don’t wish ill will on Harris or her staff, but now this? Crazy! Well, her staff will be fine, so she should focus on their recovery, but it goes to show you anyone can get it even with the utmost precautions, still not in the slightest convinced about the mask wearing, but it just goes to show you, anyone at anytime can get this virus mask or no mask. Wish the congresswoman stays safe and hope her staff recover soon.

Safety first! Looks like Kamala has been invited down into Joe’s basement. I just hope she’s good enough to reciprocate and invite Joe into the Oval Office for small talk over tea and cookies from time to time.

How do you know the hard drive is fake? You have proof? Major News outlets are now verifying the info.

Trump Voters Love Him More Than Ever - His base is fired up and will remain so, and is going to get even more fired up as all of this continues.

It's likely Trump will get a second chance.

“If anything, a second Biden ally said, the two COVID-19 cases prove the campaign had taken the right approach.”

oh really?

-6 ( +5 / -11 )

“We followed the guidelines,” one longtime Biden ally said. “It’s exactly how things should be handled. The Trump White House should take copious notes.”

then how did people get infected?

“If anything, a second Biden ally said, the two COVID-19 cases prove the campaign had taken the right approach.”

oh really?

If you compare the 20+ and counting infections in Trump’s “masks are anti-American” inner circle to the three on the Biden side I would say it shows how well masks and proper precautions slow the spread of the virus.

I’m sure the majority of the American people also recognize this and realize the failing policy of the current administration!

How about we leave the petty politics out of this one? Just wish for speedy recoveries for the staff of ex-VP and Senator Harris, and hope they candidates themselves are safe.

Yeah, it's Trump's fault those Biden people got infected!

Trump has paid WAY more in taxes than Biden ever will.

I guess the masks and hiding in bunkers doesn't work.

According to the Center for Disease Control, a study conducted by 11 medical institutions that analyzed a group of people who tested positive for coronavirus during the month of July. The study found that among those who were infected, more than 70% reported they had "always" worn a mask over the preceding 14 days. Another 14.4% said they had "often" worn a mask. 

By the way, you might not be able to find the above info on Google, I found it using DuckDuckGo. Here's the link, the relevant info on mask wearing is on page 4: https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/69/wr/pdfs/mm6936a5-H.pdf

Polls have Biden up by 11-19 points in all the battlground states. Political pundits are already giving the democrat candidates a 91 percent chance of winning on Nov. 3rd. Makes sense that campaigning is halted. Those on the Left know the democrats have a winning ticket this time around.

Biden's campaign announced two positive cases Thursday morning, identifying Harris' communications director Liz Allen and an unnamed member of the flight crew for one of Harris' recent campaign trips. The campaign announced a third case Thursday afternoon as part of its contact tracing efforts from the first two cases.

Gee, wasn't that old flight attendant on the plane acting kind'a weird - breathing on everyone's food and stuff...

Strange he had a big Nixon tattoo on his back also....

It’s good to see Biden-Harris following the CDC guidelines. Safety of people, whatever their level may be ,is of prime importance.

Meanwhile trump is self-destructing, again, at his Townhall.

Joe Biden knows in his heart that he is the only one who can truly defeat Ronald Reagan this November.

Your guys’ “sleepy joe” narrative fell apart when he showed America that he can easily beat Trump in a debate. It’s why Trump chickened out on doing any more, even though as the losing incumbent they should serve Trump better than Biden.

Trump wiped the floor with Biden.

Um, it's the opposite, Stranger, Biden's the one who insisted on a virtual debate. He chickened out of a second face to face debate. Cluck cluck!

Trump wiped the floor with Biden.

In the debate, Trump was louder, more aggressive, and bullied more. Therefore he won. I want my president to be like a pro wrestler. Biden is too boring. I want someone to hug a flag and stick it to the libs.

Watched a bit of both candidates at their "town halls". Biden gave clear and detailed answers. He knows what he's talking about, and he showed that he is capable, wise, and compassionate. So boring. Trump gave kindergarten-level answers to policy questions ("good", "best", "disaster"), and focused on how great he is and how everyone has been so unfair to him. He looked ready to explode in a narcissistic temper tantrum fireball. I want my president to be like that.

At least he didn't tell Biden "Shut up man." He won on the issues.

If you actually think that I can't help you.

Trump gave kindergarten-level answers to policy questions ("good", "best", "disaster"), and focused on how great he is and how everyone has been so unfair to him. He looked ready to explode in a narcissistic temper tantrum fireball.

He showed great restraint being as how was in a den of wolves out to get him.

On why he retweeted a QAnon conspiracy theory suggesting Bin Laden is still alive:

That was a retweet. That was an opinion of somebody, and that was a retweet. I'll put it out there. People can decide for themselves. I don't take a position.

--Donald J. Trump, Disseminator of Bold New Ideas, and Most Responsible President in the History of the Universe

This man's greatness is only starting to be revealed. Watch what happens after his 50-state landslide win on Election Day!

Seriously the world is sick to death of this circus, it this the best that the USA can do for their president? one yells like an angst riddled teenager and the other is not all here.

Poor guy. I used to believe taking responsibility for one's own words and actions was admirable. Now I believe in lashing out at people who don't kiss my rear end.

Thank you President Trump! May your ways be mine!

Cluck cluck? A rather kindergarten comment.

It truly is a sad state of affairs, where safety and common sense is portrayed as cowardice.

Trump refused to the virtual debate because he knew he wouldn't be able to interrupt his opponent and ignore the moderator, like he did last time.

Biden: Doing the correct thing to keep people safe. This is in stark contrast to super-spreader Trump.

It also shows who is taking the virus seriously and is concerned about preventing its spread to others

*and who doesn't give a ***.

All the evidence is clear as winter ice. The choice is clear.

Ah yes, the great victim narrative that he's been running with for the last 4 years.

Nobody needs to be out to "get him", he's done an ace job of getting himself so far. Into a deep, deep hole.

That's not what America decided! The polls showed Biden won, both in decided an undecided voters. Trump's polls took a hit. People saw him for the useless loser he is.

Trump came to the first debate diseased, and refused to prove he wasn't diseased for the second debate.

Do you sleep with people you know have aids without using a condom, because you don't want to look like a chicken? If so, keep doing that please. You look really tough standing up against the virus!

The birther-in-chief himself. And they whine that he got cut by the sword he was holding. Maybe he shouldn't have picked it up.

Now we're just going to make fun of them for years after Biden sweeps it.
