Election 2020: Biden is ‘a Different Guy,’ Trump to Blame for NY COVID and Kamala is Proud of an Accused Sexual Assaulter
It’s now 55 days until America decides its fate. Between Liberty and lockdown, prosperity and progressivism, a reborn America or a retread of Venezuela.
Now that we’ve passed Labor Day, the 2020 campaign is getting in full swing. Or in Biden’s case, a check swing.
Joe Biden is “Not Joe Biden Anymore”
ABC News carried a new favorite story of the mainstream media, that Russia is spreading “misinformation” about the deterioration of Joe Biden‘s mental faculties. In other words, don’t believe your lyin’ eyes. Sure, he looks like that picture of Marty McFly’s family in Back to the Future. But don’t believe your own eyes. It’s a Russkie illusion.
If we can’t believe our own eyes, how about Joe Biden’s White House stenographer? Mike McCormick worked at the White House 15 years, including six years for Biden himself. He had to listen more closely to Biden than anyone on earth. Word for word. He’s now gone on the record to say Joe’s not the same guy he was even in 2017. “He doesn’t have the energy, he doesn’t have the pace of his speaking,” McCormick told the Washington Free Beacon. “He’s a different guy.”
McCormick, who would transcribe Biden speeches as delivered, said the old Biden would regularly go off script. “He’d just make a big joke out of it, and go straight from the hip,” said McCormick. “And notice, he’s not doing that anymore. He read that [DNC speech] verbatim. … it’s not Joe Biden anymore.”
Perhaps it’s George Orwell. Joe Biden at his little weekend barbecue hit Trump for how he’s getting the economy going again post COVID. Said Joe: “The way he’s reopening is causing us to shut down.”

Opening the country is closing the country.
Blame It on the Bossa Nova?
The whole civilized world is impacted by this virus from China, yet somehow Donald Trump personally introduced it into his former home state. He convinced New York City’s mayor and health officials to tell residents to gather en masse for Chinese New Year. He then used a Jedi mind trick to force Cuomo himself to put sick COVID patients into nursing homes, killing 11,000 elderly.
Andrew, keep making up lies like that and you’ll be joining your brother on CNN prime time.
Kelly Rips Kamala
VP candidate Kamala Harris over the weekend met with Jacob Blake, Jr. and his family. According to Blake’s lawyer, Harris said she was proud of Blake.
Megyn Kelly wasn’t impressed. She tweeted: “PROUD of him? He’s accused of breaking into a sleeping woman’s house, sexually assaulting her, humiliating her & later returning to harass her. Then the cops she called for help say he resisted arrest, assaulted them & went for his knife. How about a word for his victim, Senator?”

Trump Campaigns in Florida
Donald Trump campaigned in South Florida Tuesday.
Interesting poll from the Miami Herald: “Two-thirds of all respondents [in Miami-Dade, Florida] who chose to conduct their interviews in Spanish support Trump.” How do you say “Uh-oh,” in Spanish?
Even CNN admitted last week Biden is having trouble with Hispanics in Florida. On the plus side, he has not yet said Hispanics who don’t support him “aren’t really Hispanics.”
President Trump’s push for Law and Order, amid this summer’s riots, has helped him gain significant ground in the polls against Joe Biden. Joe’s trying to catch up on the issue. In a new interview Joe Biden again denied that he wants to cut funding to police, despite being on tape talking about shifting money from police.
Said Joe, “The only person calling to defund the police is Donald Trump.” Did you ever hear Trump say that? Maybe we couldn’t hear him over all of Biden’s BLM supporters shouting “Defund the Police.”
Finally, Democrats and their media partners can’t help but downplay the violence from BLM and Antifa. Last week, Washington Post released and trumpeted an analysis: 93% of protests this summer were peaceful.
Imagine this old Washington Post Theater Review: “Last night’s production of Our American Cousin at Ford’s Theater was 93% peaceful. Indeed, the audience was treated to a surprise appearance by famed acting heartthrob John Wilkes Booth, who after a bold leap from the President’s box unexpectedly interjected into the British comedy a line from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, ‘Sic Semper Tyrannis.’ President Lincoln left the theater shortly thereafter.”
