Former Vice President Joe Biden has enjoyed incredibly favorable coverage from the mainstream media in the 2020 presidential race. His baggage, such as a history of plagiarism, racist comments, and shady dealings for his son Hunter, has been completely ignored by the media.
While the media are working overtime to demonize President Donald Trump, Biden has been able to stay in his basement for months conducting very few interviews. In his recent press appearances, Biden has exited without taking questions from the media. His staffers told the media to leave and they meekly complied with these demands without shouting any questions.
It's official!! The US presidential race pitts the challengers Joe Biden and Kamala Harris vs. incumbent Donald Trump and Mike Pence.
Today, only days leading up to the Democratic convention, Joe Biden announced his running mate.
Shortly after the announcement, we wanted to see what the talking heads were saying about the match up. Below is a transcript of a portion of the Daily Meet the Press with Chuck Todd as host. Following that is Dana Perino and Chris Wallace from Fox News
In the race to take on President Donald Trump, vice-president Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders continue to slip in the polls among Democratic voters according to the just released Morning Consult poll. Perhaps the most disturbing aspect of the survey is that among likely voters, Biden's lead drops to high single digits.
The torch Joe Biden claims he’s still carrying is sputtering like a firecracker on a wet lawn. In the second night of Democratic televised look-me-overs, the former V.P. was shut down by Cal Sen. Kamala Harris in a set piece that should spell the end for Uncle Joe. Harris, in contrast to Biden’s pasteurized plastic smile, was emotive, prosecutorial, and intelligent when she attacked Biden for comments he made, recently, about working with segregationist senators back in the day.
To the thick, and thin, of things, the first polls are out, putatively describing which Democrat has the best chance of beating President Donald Trump in 2020. Sleepy Joe Biden debuted at the top spot and immediately signaled that he wasn’t that guy when he announced Trump was an aberrational Republican. Since every member of the GOP, except Mitt Romney, has bent over backwards to accommodate Trump, Biden is wrong. They are all just like Trump.
