    Biden folded because a Republican called him a leftist. Typical Biden behavior considering his political career. Who is surprised?

    This explains why Kim and Kris were pimping Kanye out to the Trump campaign.

    The GOP says "sure, of course we do. No sarcasm " while the left side of the spectrum is fractured.

    Let's just validate more of Trump's bullshit.
    It's not a bad strategy.
    A lot of moderate dems want little to do with the radical left that encourages destructive behavior.
    Ultimately I don't think it will play out as Trump thinks it will since there are some moderate repubs that see Biden as a better alternative.

    How is Trump driving a wedge between democrats, by calling Biden an extreme left? That doesn’t make any sense...

    Still waiting on you to say something that makes sense about this instead of much ado about nothing. Bah, nevermind. You can go with the rest of them.

    You know it was 100% born of Bernie saying Biden was the most progressive candidate since FDR.

    Biden folded because he shouldn’t spend capital convincing the public that Trump is right... In a normal world, leftists would be attacking Trump for misrepresenting them, instead of bitching that a conservative like Biden is not left enough.

    It was born out of the fact that Trump’s campaign is to attack multiculturalism and the red scare, but he is running against vanilla.

    Trump has the disadvantages of being so bad at his job that a charlatan like Biden finally has a chance.

    We have two bottom of the barrel candidates. One who is trying to get people not to come out to the polls against him and the other who needs to give a reason for people to bother.

    ... and who was doing it for decades before?

    I'm getting a giggle at these "if you aren't antifa you aren't anti-facist."

    Imagine your self from 2016 saying the same... Here is another way to put it... The left is so scary to American people, that our candidates are Biden and Trump.

    What’s your issue with his housing and social justice proposals?

    Edit: Remember the shit you called people over Reade? Any harsh words for Trump supporters over using the DOJ in Trump’s literal rape case? She has DNA.....

    Edit 2: How are you supposed to have a reason to vote for him, when you literally ignore his current proposals, to dredge up shit people have been saying about him for decades?

    It’s fashion... it can’t be anything else... how can you bitch that Biden doesn’t support antifa, as his opponent is literally redefining it as terrorism? Few more elections of leftist purity tests and they won’t be the ones conducting them...

    Like I said last time, democrats need to take the partial loss on this one and get that unemployment to the 25 mil? People who need it.

    That's part of the problem: The GOP proposal isn't sending it to the people who really need it. The Democrats already cut their proposed bill back by a third and both the GOP and Trump flat out refused to deal with it.

    dude got it the wrong way round no one said that, if you are anti-fascist you are antifa...its literally what it means....whether you were SHARPs or whatever

    falling into the trap of classifying leftists there too

    How is getting +300 a week to the 25 mil or so unemployed not going to the people who need it? Did I miss something?

    I'm aware the house passed a much better bill long ago, but that is dead in the water. This is something.

    300 a week is already a thing. signing the bill is just signing what's already being given, it's basically pointless. better to fight for something better imo.

    It was only going to be a thing for 6 weeks or so with the funding source trump was trying to use. This is through the end of the year.

    It is NOT basically pointless. I hate the right and trump like everyone else, but let's not deny reality like they do please.
