Joe Biden Is Getting Under Donald Trump's Skin

To reiterate again, I am trying not to take a position on next year’s Democratic primary (but, ahem), I’m just following the political news. And in today’s political news, Biden’s Presidential announcement video yesterday focused a lot on Donald Trump’s “both sides” comments with regard to Charlottesville, a comment that actually did result in Trump’s approval ratings dropping to around the lowest level of his Presidency. It’s probably not something that Trump would want in the news again.

What’s that? Trump, in defending himself, has put it in the news again?

It was all about a Robert E. Lee monument, Trump says, and oh, by the way, Robert E. Lee was a “great general”?

Which part of the chant, “Jews will not replace us,” was about the Robert E. Lee Monument, Trump?

Even Fox News stuck their foot in it when — in internal emails — two Fox reporters tried to defend Trump’s “both sides” comment, and got called out by a third Fox News reporter, who said that invoking Churchill in this instance was “offensive,” adding, “I really don’t understand the point you are making,” he wrote. “Jarrod Kuhn was one of those individuals in Charlottesville holding a tiki torch while the mob chanted ‘Jews will not replace us.’”

Meanwhile, some very defensive Republicans are trying to suggest that the “very fine people” remark was a “false memory.”

A defensive Trump is also trying to suggest that Biden is too old and low energy to run for President (Biden is 76; Trump is 72).

Biden’s not my guy, but he seems like he has Trump shook.
