Both campaigns can feel the political terrain in the 2020 election changing.
All of a sudden, it’s Democrats on the defense.
And Donald Trump gave Joe Biden this ultimatum that had Democrats running for their lives.
Americans were rocked by the news that a self-described Antifa terrorist allegedly shot and killed a Trump supporter in Portland over the weekend.
Trump supporters staged a counter-protest to the Antifa and Black Lives Matter terrorists running roughshod over the city.
After a Joe Biden voter shot and killed a Trump supporter, Biden finally commented on the riots and blamed Donald Trump and his supporters for a left-wing terrorist murdering a Trump supporter.
“What does President Trump think will happen when he continues to insist on fanning the flames of hate and division in our society and using the politics of fear to whip up his supporters? He is recklessly encouraging violence,” Biden’s handlers wrote in a statement released under the candidate’s name.
The former Vice President’s handlers also announced they would allow Biden to venture out of his holding room in the basement of his house to speak on the race riots his supporters initiated in cities across America.
The morning of Biden’s big speech,President Trump challenged Biden to denounce Antifa terrorists by name in his speech.
“When is Slow Joe Biden going to criticize the Anarchists, Thugs & Agitators in ANTIFA? When is he going to suggest bringing up the National Guard in BADLY RUN & Crime Infested Democrat Cities & States? Remember, he can’t lose the Crazy Bernie Super Liberal vote!” the President wrote on social media.
When it came time for Biden’s speech – which some observers compared to the make or break moment Barack Obama faced in 2008 when Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s racist and anti-American comments surfaced – Biden predictably flubbed the moment.
Biden rambled through one section of his speech about coronavirus where he lost his train of thought and fueled concerns he suffers from early onset dementia.
“Covid has taken this year, just since the outbreak, has taken more than 100 year, look, here’s, the lives, it’s just, when you think about it,” Biden stammered with a bewildered and confused look on his face.
While Biden offered up a weak condemnation of violence, he did not call out the Antifa or Black Lives Matter terrorists by name for their rage-filled summer of violence.
“I want to be very clear about all of this: Rioting is not protesting. Looting is not protesting. Setting fires is not protesting. None of this is protesting. It’s lawlessness, plain and simple. And those who do it should be prosecuted,” Biden added. “Violence will not bring change, it will only bring destruction. It’s wrong in every way,” Biden muttered.
This disastrous speech will not do anything to move the election conversation off riots in Democrat-run cities.
And that is bad news for Joe Biden and the Democrats.
