Donald J. Trump is killin’ me, I tell ya. He’s killin’ me!
The Republican president is trying to portray Joseph R. Biden Jr. as a “radical far-left” presidential candidate. Yes, the man who served for 36 years in the U.S. Senate and eight years as vice president of the United States, is a far-lefty, squishy liberal … according to the man with no discernible principle on which to run.
So now he is seeking to categorize his opponent as something he clearly is not.
Joe Biden is a mainstream Democrat. He is a working-class guy. He grew up in a family of modest means. Biden was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1972 and didn’t become old enough to serve until the period between his election and when he took the oath of office.
He has been strong on criminal justice reform. He favors legislation that helps working families.
He is not going to “destroy the suburbs.” Biden is not going to take away our guns, dismantling the Second Amendment.
Yet the Demagogue in Chief will seek to have voters believe that Biden is beholden to some far-left ideology. He isn’t.
Let’s on hold on with both hands. This campaign will be as ugly as it can possibly get.
