Lots of women voted Trump in 2016 just because he wasn't named Clinton.

I doubt that will happen again though, people have seen how inept Trump really is now. The Lincoln Project are hammering away at him with some effective ads that you just know he can't help himself but react to:

I think that’s going to be huge factor this time. Women have few reasons to vote FOR Trump.

Well, I'm sharing less what Shaun says, and more what Biden struggles to say in the video.

Trump is just as incoherent.

The lead up to November will be like Bum Fights - Aged Care Facility Edition

You're trying to say you've never been on the spot and struggled to get words out? It was obvious what he was trying to say and beyond having an enunciation challenge with one word, he was speaking in whole, coherent sentences - which is more than you can say for his opposition.

Biden's dealt with stuttering his whole life. It's not a new thing.

Compared with Trump's Axios interview, Biden in that clip comes across as white Barack Obama.

Hah! Imagine if someone 1/10th as eloquent and lucid as Obama were in the race.

Cognitive decline is the attack vector du jour. At this stage Biden should have his rehearsed response to the question of "cognitive test". His campaign manager has failed him for not seeing this coming.

Harris is pick for veep. The shit sandwich has a new garnish.

WaPo ‘You owe them an apology’: Gabbard’s attack highlights Harris’s complex death penalty record
https://www.washingtonpost.com/natio...enalty-record/

For a minute there (4-5 years... actually) I thought US politics had well and truly jumped the shark. We can all rest easy that Harris is about to bring back the America we know and love.

Republicans signal their readiness to make Trump dictator, forgoing the usual policy platform in favour of a blanket statement "we support Trump's agenda".

I can't watch. I mean, I'm literally avoiding the news and blogs and RSS feeds until the Republican shitfest is over. It's not worth my attention.

Holy Christ this woman needs to learn to tone it down a decibel or 40, especially when there's only about 6 other people in the room (including her boyfriend, Trump's namesake son).

Are these anything but a big pat on the back? Only people already voting D will watch the DNC, and only those already voting R will watch the RNC. Anyone on the fence isn't watching either, i'd wager.

And it's so tribal that there's nothing the R's could say or do that would cause someone to switch sides, and vice versa.

I'm pretty sure most everyone in either campaign are popping next level nootropics. Just the way they can be total dopes, barely able to get out a coherent idea, then super sharp on the big stage.

I am filled with deja vu and fear that the Democratic Party are sleepwalking to another defeat. Based on the past week, Trump has this in the bag.

Agreed. Democrats are going to have a "mostly successful" election campaign.

Trump is putting all his efforts into campaigning as if he was a challenger (i.e. he's not campaigning as an incumbent), and putting so much focus into how bad things are, entirely disregarding that things are this bad under his leadership.

"The only way you will stop the violence in the high crime Democrat run cities is through strength!"

"Ted Wheeler, the wacky Radical Left Do Nothing Democrat Mayor of Portland, who has watched great death and destruction of his City during his tenure, thinks this lawless situation should go on forever. Wrong!"

It does nothing but enhances the "Them vs us" narrative. Purely fuel on the fire, and his base is eating it up.

Everything Trump is doing right now is for an audience of swing working class white voters in, like, 5 states. US democracy is so fucked now that only those voters matter.

Yep, you don't need to do anything in 95% of the country. Those states are basically Red or Blue and no changing it.
Just go to those 10 swing states.

While not all of them may be important they following are generally have close results to be called a swing state.

Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin
(Yes I got the full list from Wiki).

Yes you could argue that you only need to focus on half the swing states (or biggest) to have it make a difference

Trump jumps on offer to have Joe Rogan moderate debate with Joe Biden
Would be epic if Biden called Trumps bluff & this went ahead.

Please please please let this go ahead.

And while it's happening Eddie Bravo, Bryan Callen & Brendan Schaub should do a Fight Companion while watching the debate.

Elk meat and Australopithecus!

But they'd have to be Covid tested first...

Wait - this is the same Trump that says he doesn't kid right, so just like Judith's eyebrows, it's a sure thing.

What many Trump supporters, and other less observant Twitter users, failed to notice or note was that Luis Fonsi, the artist who sings “Despacito,” introduced Biden at the event.

with blessing from the artist or no, it was a terrible move. Despacito means "slow", and the chorus goes "I want to breathe on your neck, let me tell you things in your ear."

It's an invitation to cut this scene with the existing supercut of Biden whispering into girls ears, sniffing their hair as they squirm.

It's also an invitation to replace the music with anything else for meme effect. One's already been made with NWA Fuck The Police.

Tasty

It's a bit cringy because he's old as fuck, that's it.

Coming into the these final weeks every little thing Biden does will be blown out of proportion by Trump supporters & the same goes for what Trump does by Biden supporters. Well even more than usual anyway

If anything, I think it contrasts nicely with the number of artists demanding Trump not use their efforts at rallys.

Seems pretty clear at this point Trump has no expectation he'll be stepping down from power after the election.

And why would he? He's so far been very successful stepping over the law.
