Joe Biden and Company have just spend four days pushing diversity, caring, hope and some sort of normalcy….

But is going after the woman of color on the ticket….
And true to form?
Donald Trump IS and WILL continue to make stuff up that ain’t true…..

That if he’s gone?….America will be in trouble?
President Trump unleashed a scorched-earth campaign on Thursday against former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. hours before Mr. Biden was to accept the Democratic presidential nomination, predicting “mayhem” if his rival won the general election in November.
“At stake in this election is the survival of our nation, it’s true,” Mr. Trump told a small crowd in a Pennsylvania town not far from where Mr. Biden was born. “Because we’re dealing with crazy people on the other side. They’ve gone totally stone-cold crazy.”
The president took aim at Senator Kamala Harris of California, the Democratic nominee for vice president, seeking to stoke fear of immigrants by offering a brutal description of a case involving an undocumented immigrant who was included in a jobs program while Ms. Harris was the top prosecutor in San Francisco….
Mr. Trump’s attack on Ms. Harris was an echo of the Willie Horton episode during the 1988 presidential race between Vice President George Bush and Gov. Michael S. Dukakis of Massachusetts. Mr. Bush’s campaign and its allies repeatedly invoked Mr. Horton — a Black prisoner in Massachusetts who, while released on a furlough program, raped a white woman — to suggest Mr. Dukakis was soft on crime.
Seeking to undermine Mr. Biden’s appeal in rural, blue-collar parts of Pennsylvania, the president lashed out at him, saying that Mr. Biden had “abandoned” his hometown, Scranton, when his family moved when he was a young boy.
Mr. Trump said that Mr. Biden had been at the forefront of a “globalist attack on Pennsylvania voters,” citing the former vice president’s support of trade deals with Mexico, China, South Korea and “the horrible, ridiculous Paris climate accords.”
“As far as I’m concerned,” Mr. Trump asserted, “Joe Biden is no friend of Pennsylvania.”
In his remarks, the president also ascribed to Mr. Biden many positions that he does not actually hold or he mischaracterized Mr. Biden’s proposals….
