The only thing I want Biden to talk about is herd immunity.

Trump's complete abdication of duty/responsibility is the issue. It is life and death. Trump's plan requires that 60% of the U.S. population get the virus. Someone please do the math and tell me how many Americans will need to get sick. Seems like about 200 million.

TRUMP - COMPLETE ABDICATION OF RESPONSIBILITY.

1. The town hall format is intended for audience members to ask him questions,

so we'll have to hope someone asks him about that so he can talk about it.

4. With the success of Trump's herd immunity plan we

will no longer need to worry about the viability of SS, almost all of the old people will be dead.

3. He's thinning the herd, not immunizing it.

Can't wait to cull a few head with votes.

7. It needs to be social security, health care and climate change

 

Biden trails 61-39 among seniors in Texas. That obviously means not enough of them understand the social security ramifications of Trump eliminating the payroll tax

Health care is obvious

Climate change to motivate the youth vote. They have not been turning out in early voting

10. WRONG. Herd immunity requires long term immunity, no evidence it'll work for COVID19.

None, not a dime of evidence long term immunity is achievable for the vast majority of the population with normal infection from COVID19.

You could kill millions of people in the USA alone and get nothing for it.

11. Good lord.

That is my point. Trump is killing everyone. That is what Biden needs to be talking about.

12. I realize "WRONG" could be taken as *you*, I meant it as the herd immunity concept.

Hope you didn't take it the wrong way, and sorry if you did.

But yeah, Biden needs to point out the flaw in the herd immunity approach, starting with the best case scenario and how many will have to die or have permanent critical health problems, and the worst case where the same number of people die and have lifetime health problems and we get no herd immunity.
