Turn Out The Lights, The Party’s Over For Republicans
A global pandemic has killed over 100,000 Americans. Trump’s slow response to the COVID-19 outbreak played a role in devastating the country’s economy.
This weekend, people were protesting police brutality against African-Americans in most major American cities. The death of George Floyd at police hands in Minneapolis was the tipping point.
The juxtaposition of what the two Presidential candidates were up to as this latest development was unfolding was stark: Biden was out in public, opening a dialogue with protesters in Wilmington, Delaware; Trump was reportedly hiding out in a bunker as protesters reached the front gates of the White House.

Trump hasn’t addressed the nation while it is in chaos and under crisis. His stunning lack of empathy and leadership were never more exemplified than during the past few months.
Perhaps as a symbol that end is near for the Trump Presidency, the lights were turned out at the White House on Saturday evening during the protests there.
Is Average Joe Poised For Victory?
If this in fact a sure sign of the tide turning in favor of the Democrats, it might be the biggest triumph for average Joes since the movie Dodgeball.
No one is about to put Biden up on a pedestal next to Lincoln, FDR, or JFK.
This Joe Biden meeting with community leaders in a Delaware church may look kind of clunky. But how superior in spirit and effect it is to Trump’s hiding and ranting! pic.twitter.com/iCwURTaAQs

The anticipation isn’t that he’ll be a great President. The fact of the matter is that Biden isn’t Trump. Right now, that’s the best thing he’s got going for him.
Democrats Benefactors Of Derailing Trump Train
An ABC News/Washington Post poll released Sunday showed Biden with a 10-point lead over Trump across the country. Among registered voters, 53% favored Biden. Just 43% indicated that they would vote for Trump.
There is a theory being put forth that all this chaos could play into Trump’s hands. He likes to present himself as the law and order President.
100% Correct. Thank you Tom! https://t.co/axdLX7kGNn

However, instead of displaying strength during America’s time of need, Trump appears to be growing more unhinged. Several reports cited him angrily demanding that states get tougher with protestors during a Monday confererence call with Governors.
He was also endorsing a tweet by Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton calling for the US military to be deployed against the protestors.
Trump’s time is up. Get action on the Democrats before the odds shorten.
Let's have fun and keep it civil.
