Radical or moderate?

Expect Trump and the R's to continue making every sort of attack they can think of on both Biden and Harris. Expect more alt facts and fake news. (Repeat of Pizzagate?) Expect they'll once again be helped by dirt-level advisors like Roger Stone, expect once again Russia to get involved to support Trump and the R's. Trump and the 'elite' 'establishment' he represents have got even richer and more powerful during his reign. They will pull out all the stops to keep him in office.

President Donald Trump's campaign is struggling to define California Sen Kamala Harris

Gross, sleazy opportunist?

And without a clear message, Trump has reverted to his usual playbook, resorting to sexist and racist attacks.

Biased, much, AP?

He has repeatedly called Harris “nasty”

She is.

He has repeatedly called Harris “nasty”

And Trump isn't?

I would actually say he is pretty much the textbook definition of the word.

Some Republicans said the messaging wasn't coherent.

The R's are waiting for the Russians to give them instructions. But expect once again they'll continue doing shotgun attacks covering the full spectrum. Expect to hear all the usual terms from the alt right glossary, plus some new ones.

“Clearly, Phony Kamala

Wait for this term to be repeated: 'phony' along with a non-anglo name. Expect dog whistles galore and even the quiet parts to be shouted. Trump and his 'elites' are desperate to maintain their power and control

“This has completed the leftist takeover of the party and of their radical agenda,” said Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, who claimed Harris “will be the most liberal leftist nominee for VP that our country has ever seen" and cited her support for the Black Lives Matter group.

All lives matter.

Kamala put over 1,500 mostly black people in jail for marijuana violations then laughed about it when asked if she had ever smoked marijuana and lied about listening to Tupac

What gives?

Trump complained about Obama playing golf too much and now plays golf far more than his predecessor.

Trump railed against the swamp of lobbyists in Washington and then proceeded to take on a whole bunch more. He swore to clean up government and then puts his daughter and son-in-law in positions of unaccountable power, and uses the AG as his personal fixer.

What gives?

Its quite simple what he is saying. People who claim to be moderate like Biden are actually far left.

Kamala Harris is the most liberal Senator in 2019, so she is far left already.

But neither are far left enough for the new far left (the Squad, Antifa, Defund Police, BLM section of the party).

So yes the Dem party is both radical (reality) and moderate (because some members have not come far enough left yet to be called radical.)

Notice how the only people claiming that are the extreme alt right?

Oh come on. The leftist playbook in action.

trump and supporters resorting to left and right attacks in desperation.

Future doesn't seem too bright for this brainless bunch.

$ 26 million in 24 hours, no doubt trump's whining is increasing !!!!

Politics is a nasty business. Trump supporters love it when he gets nasty and personal. Remember what he said about Fiorina and the tweet ridiculing Ted Cruz’s wife?

Sounds like he’s stating the obvious in politics.

Radical or moderate?

Biden's record can be considered a "moderate" Democrat whereas Harris' record is more "radical" in comparison.

Biden and Harris will run as "moderates" and try to convince the American people they are moderates. But.....

Look at who backs Biden and Harris. Most leftist and radical groups, including the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA.

The Democrat Party Platform is the most radical platform ever proposed in American political history.

And you can assured that the Biden Administration is going to be the most radical ever.

*he Dem party is both radical (reality) and moderate (because some members have not come far enough left yet to be called radical.)*

Even the most progressive wing of the Democratic Party would not be considered “radical left” in almost any other established democracy in the world.

Exactly. Thanks to propagandists like Newt Gingrich, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Sean Hannity, and Tucker Carlson, the GOP has turned into a party of mass delusion and hysteria. Facts don’t matter anymore.

Tell me what tax rates were under Obama and whether those rates resemble “socialism”. Also, Obama didn’t confiscate your guns or set up death panels.

I’d love to hear an answer to this too, but sadly we know it’s not coming.

Ooh. I’m shaking in my boots. Death panels, infanticide, thought police, collective farms, re-education camps for Christians, abolition of private property and guns, government-run media. You name it.

The only thing scarier is people who peddle this nonsense.

The KKK backed Trump.

When you are faced with only 2 parties, people tend to back the one closest to their principles.

Wait for:

it's been debunked

I already answered that

LOL libs

They should probably stick with the radical BS. It makes the GOP nervous to hear that and they will reliably show up to vote out of fear.

Harris has a ton of baggage. Too bad Joe couldnt wait until the day before the election to name her as his running mate. Instead its an eternity in politics till election day. Watch what happens.

True. But Biden and Harris still have to go through the nomination process at the Democrat National Convention and be nominated on the first ballot. Lots of things can happen at that Convention. Watch what happens; there may be surprises.

True, that's exactly how a democratic process should work.

Watch what happens; there may be surprises.

The GOP might play a dirty trick or too, they are well known for that.

There might be plenty of surprises for trump too, there's just so much dirty laundry out there, you never know what will come up.

Not that it will matter to the bigoted supporters!!

Of course Trump is going to attack Biden and Harris and why should he not, they are the opposition, he wants to win, just as they want to win and they are going to attack him, remember we don’t live in a one party system, not just yet.

Expect more alt facts and fake news. (Repeat of Pizzagate?) Expect they'll once again be helped by dirt-level advisors like Roger Stone, expect once again Russia to get involved to support Trump and the R's.

For the life of me, I don’t know why liberals continuously pedal that debunked theory, Mueller debunked it, Comey, McCabe debunked it, most of the FBI debunked it, Christopher Wray debunked it, John Bolton debunked it, the only people that support and push it are the heads at CNN

Trump and the 'elite' 'establishment' he represents have got even richer and more powerful during his reign. They will pull out all the stops to keep him in office.

But if Biden has a huge win, who will get richer? All the Democrats especially those job creators that are all liberal

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

Not my facts, I just read the Mueller report as well as Comey’s, McCabe’s and Lisa Page’s testimony, but I don’t think liberals have.

The problem is the liberals just keep believing what they want to believe. Facts dont matter to them.
