Bernie Sanders all in it for Joe , Biden…Support for Kamala Harris on the ticket…Trump loses a brother…Birthism and Harris…Meadows , and others, agree’s Harris is ok to be VP….
Joe Biden has a big speech coming up this week…
A Washington Post-ABC News poll released Sunday finds most Americans approve of Harris’s selection as a vice presidential running mate by presumptive Democratic nominee Biden. The Post-ABC poll finds 54 percent of Americans approve of Biden’s choice of Harris while 29 percent disapprove and 17 percent have no opinion…
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said Sunday that he will “do everything I can” to elect Joe Biden and defeat President Trump, who he described as “the most dangerous president in American history.”
“And after the Democrats have control of the Senate and the House, and Joe is the president, we’re going to do all that we can to mobilize people for a progressive agenda,” Sanders, who came up short in his bid for the Democratic nomination, said in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “But this is not a complicated issue. Donald Trump must be defeated. Biden must be elected.”
Sanders acknowledged that he has policy differences with Biden, noting that he ran against the former vice president in the Democratic primary. But he added that after the November election, “we’ve got to rally our people to stand up and fight for an agenda that works for all, and not just a few, and that absolutely includes Medicare-for-all.”
Sanders weighed in on White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows’s acknowledgment Sunday that Sen. Kamala D. Harris is eligible to be vice president. He suggested that Meadows should “talk to the White House [about] why they tweet out stuff that is terrible and lying.”…
Biden on Sunday extended his condolences to Trump on the death of the president’s younger brother Robert Trump.
“Mr. President, Jill and I are sad to learn of your younger brother Robert’s passing,” Biden tweetedSunday morning. “I know the tremendous pain of losing a loved one — and I know how important family is in moments like these. I hope you know that our prayers are with you all.”
Harris, too, sent a condolence tweet Sunday morning.
“Doug and I join the Biden family in sending our deepest condolences and prayers to the entire Trump family during this difficult time,” she said. “Losing a loved one is never easy but know that we are thinking of you.”
Robert Trump died Saturday in New York City at age 71. The death was announced by the White House. He had been hospitalized for several days after becoming seriously ill. No cause of death was immediately given…
It was one of the biggest moments of President Barack Obama’s tenure, the signing of his landmark health-care law. Every word was planned. Message discipline was critical, particularly for the administration’s least scripted member: Joe Biden.
The vice president’s staff had worked on the remarks late into the night. There was the quote from Virgil. The nod to history. The praise of the president. But in the end, all anyone remembered was a single off-color, off-the-cuff phrase, one Biden intended to whisper to Obama but was caught on mic: “This is a big [expletive] deal.”
For those who have tried to write speeches for Biden, it was a signature moment. He likes his language simple and direct. He wants to communicate things in their essence. And he rarely follows the script.
Biden now faces the most consequential speech of his political career — Thursday’s address claiming the Democratic nomination he has sought for much of his life — and it will unfold under extraordinary circumstances, with strict social distancing and no cheering crowd in the room. It comes days after a similarly constrained speech, Biden’s introduction of Harris as his running mate…..
Joe Biden is the first challenger since at least 1940 to head into the conventions with over 50% support against an incumbent president. That is, Biden heads into the conventions in a historically strong position.
He’s certainly in a much stronger position than Clinton was in 2016—both pre- and post-convention.
The Hill has a piece on a CNN poll that reads Biden 50%…Trump 46%
