One of the first things I think Biden should do

(and I know it's a pipe dream on my part)...

Is schedule time on several networks for about an hour and say he is going to debunk all the lies donnie and his minions told about the Democrats. Debunk, as in show or explain why they were lies and tell viewers that, if they thought about it (a direct challenge to many trumpers), they would realize why it was a lie.

I know it's not his style, but, given what the GOPers have been doing, I think somebody should get up there and call out the lies as lies in no uncertain terms.

1. Pretty good idea, but

I think more like the 3rd or 4th thing to do.

2. One of the reasons I suggested

Biden do " fireside chats". Every week on TV. He could explain things bust lies and have an informal civics class all in one. Plus people watching him will begin to trust him and that could be a form of healing our nation needs.

4. Fireside chats

might be a good idea for delivering much needed , informal civics classes.
Sort of a "How Government Works" tutorial series.
JB will be very busy and has a tendency to ramble so I'd task Harris with the job, even better if they could get Obama to do it.

9. No. I think it should be Joe.

There will be people out there prepared to ignore anything Barack Obama or Vice President Harris say just because they are people of color.

It's sad, but maybe white, cisgender, staunchly Catholic Joe Biden can change some minds in the demographic of which he is a member.

3. Yesterday I asked

"What leverage can Biden employ

to get Trump to behave for 30 days?

Can he threaten a Special Prosecutor on Day One?

Can he release an unredacted Mueller report Day One?

Can he rehire the Mueller team to finish the job Barr pulled them off of, no longer POTUS , prosecutors can pursue Trump after Day One.

Can he release Trump's tax returns on Day One.

Can he order surveillance on Trump as a national security risk on Day One?

What else?"

It was late at night and no one seemed to want to speculate, I'd really like to hear ideas about how to stifle Trump and get some justice.

5. I think any or all of these would work,

but I don't believe it's Biden's style.

Maybe if the new AG does it, but I don't think Biden would go for it at this point.

And no I'm not bashing him - just being realistic.

8. There is nothing Biden can do. He is not the president.

6. Bombing Mar-a-Lago should only take a few hours.

7. No, he needs to use twitter, social media...lots of press conferences to that a bit at a time.

Trump will be investigate for sure at the state level...we need use bully pulpit everyday...maybe some taped fireside chat stuff too.
