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
What do you think about President Donald Trump's trial balloon he launched today? According to the president, we can't trust the future election results because of mail-in voting. So, the Potus tweeted his frustration which in essence asked , "how about if we delay this November vote, guys?".
Maybe he has a point. While there absolutely is no evidence of the type of massive "mail-in" voting fraud that could turn the November results, admittedly, it is possible, and we have seen isolated cases.
It's now official. Down is up, and day is night. And Donald Trump is the man who saved America from health and economic Armageddon.
That's the White House narrative. If you were to believe the quick-talking, take-no-prisoners Presidential Counselor, Kellyanne Conway, her boss is the best thing to happen to treat infections since penicillin.
On Wednesday, Conway told a gaggle of reporters that the governors opened up too quickly. Her finger-pointing and boss-protection is no surprise, especially now. After a long hiatus during which the White House put fixing the virus on cruise control, with poll numbers heading due south, the President decided to become relevant once again.
Usually, a President that delivered seven million new jobs and a historically low unemployment rate can run for re-election on his economic program. Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic destroyed the economy. Thus, President Trump’s masterful stewardship of the economy is no longer apparent as Americans struggle to deal with economic lockdowns, virus mandates, and high unemployment.
As the nation returns to lockdown mode again with an increase in virus numbers, economic progress will be curtailed. This issue is no longer the President’s best way to win re-election.
How insane, how selfish can some people be?
If you think President Donald Trump is down and out right now, I've got an old Hillary Clinton campaign to sell you.
Admittedly, his numbers look bad and can get worse. Two national polls emerged on Wednesday, and the President trailed Joe Biden by double digits. As the Coronavirus bakes throughout the South and West, Trump can't catch his own breath to pick up any steam. Americans clearly blame him for blowing the greatest threat to America's health and economic growth. He inherited a good economy from President Barack Obama, although there were moments of wavering. With the strong wind behind him, he improved upon its upward trajectory that had been in place since 2011. Still, people gave him credit for the excellent feeling of prosperity because it was happening on his watch.
No one has been more abused in the last four years than General Michael Flynn. This American hero is a 33-year Army veteran who retired as a Lieutenant General. Incredibly, he has been treated even worse than President Trump.
Former President Obama appointed General Flynn to be Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). Soon thereafter, it was apparent that his tough on Islamic terrorism views were not in line with the President or the Deep State forces within the foreign policy and military hierarchy.
Between now and election day, we’re going to hear the word “racism”, over and over again.
In the middle of the worse economy in our lives, the worse health disaster, with record unemployment and cities shutting down again, the word that is getting and will receive a tremendous amount of attention, is RACIST.
This is what happens when you mix Donald Trump, Black Lives Matters, police, boiling anger, and upcoming elections into the same pot. From that gumbo of hostility will inevitably be the charge of Racism. Those wanting a change will pick up on the many little words, actions, and nuances and proclaim Trump to be a racist. His backers, who believe he will lead them into making America great again, will reply that the real racists are those on the other side of the separation.
There is a mob that wants to destroy our country. They want to change our political and economic systems and move us toward a communist form of government. Part of their attack is to demonize our history and traditions and destroy our monuments and symbols.
While millions of Americans love the country and revere our traditions, the radicals hate America and want to radically transform our nation. They plan on accomplishing their mission by eroding trust in law enforcement and targeting police departments for destruction across the country.
Could we possibly have a worse leader during the greatest national crises in modern American history than we do right now with President Donald Trump?
I’m serious. I only wish he would take the Coronavirus seriously, more than he takes his own political campaign and personal future.
For one, the economy is in complete shambles.
