13 year old displays reality that the Far Right clearly lacks

   Yeah, we know, the Far Right didn't watch the Dem Convention, they probably / maybe read crib notes from some rightwing site.   

    They missed the opportunity to see the stark difference between the 2 candidates.    Joe Biden saw this young man and recognized himself in him.   This young man stutters.  Joe asked to meet him backstage at a campaign event, back before donald's ineptitude to recognize a pandemic and did nothing to halts its death march thru the US.    Joe Biden show this young man the tools that he used to help him overcome his impediment.

   And this young man spoke to over half the nation last night.   

 

   We all saw it:   Empathy v. Mockery.    Far Right lost last night!  BIGLY

 Not even close.  About 25 million viewers is around 8%.

And liberals call Trump a liar.

I don't know what the real number is, but Nielson looks at six major networks.  I watched on PBS and my kids watched on youtube.  Are they counted?

"Biden national press secretary TJ Ducklo said at least 10.2 million people watched live internet streams of the convention on Monday night"

 

How does he know?  35 million viewers is about 11% of the nation.

 

You are getting sleepy.

Whatever the numbers are...a lot of people watched, are concerned, and were listening to positive statements about who we can be. 
A lot of bravery shown by the young man who spoke to overcome a disability, along with the young lady who spoke the other night about her father passing from the virus, because he believed trump!

Oh that kid is so cute, and so right.   How hard is it, really, to make space for people who are different from you?

 Compare and contrast that exercise in oratorical skill with the moronic wanderings of Cadet Bonespurs as he dives into another of his 1st grade monologues on "what I did last summer" drones.

That made me spit coffee on my KB. 🙂

 

 

 

Trump is an aperture in the fundament.

Anyone with at least half a brain could not help from being impressed with Biden's acceptance speech last night. Compare and contrast that exercise in oratorical skill with the moronic wanderings of Cadet Bonespurs as he dives into another of his 1st grade monologues on "what I did last summer" drones.

 

And see the difference between Vice Poodle Mike Dense launching into a campaign speech when asked about the inability of the tRump administration to deal with Covid or any other factual topic.

 

If I were King, every time a politician did this - ignore the question and launch a campaign speech - I'd turn off their mike and tell them they needed to contact the advertising folks to arrange airing a political speech, but if they wanted airtime on the NEWS, they'd have to respond to the questions.
