Biden: Trump has failed at home on virus, abroad with Putin

By BILL BARROW and ALEXANDRA JAFFE

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Joe Biden took aggressive aim Tuesday at President Donald Trump’s fitness for the Oval Office, suggesting he has abdicated his duty to protect U.S. troops facing Russian threats abroad and American citizens facing a pandemic and economic calamity at home.

Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, told reporters Trump has “a lot to answer for” concerning news reports that he was advised as early as March 2019 of intelligence that suggested Russia was offering bounties to the Taliban for the deaths of Americans. And, in prepared remarks, Biden accused Trump of “waving the white flag” as coronavirus cases spike nationwide and the death toll surpasses 125,000.

The one-two punch reflects the core of Biden’s candidacy, which he built on the argument that Trump is morally and temperamentally unfit to lead the nation. He sought again Tuesday to draw sharp contrasts with his own experience and style as a former vice president and longtime senator.

Biden stopped short of saying Trump had violated his oath of office or should face any consequences from Congress based on any inaction on potential Russian bounties. But he called it “an absolute dereliction of duty if any of this is even remotely true,” and, in that case, he added, “the public should, unrelated to my running, conclude that this man is unfit to be president of the United States of America.”

2. another good appearance by Joe

And taking questions from the reporters, and not snipping at them, demonstrates again the temperament needed in the White House. I feel more and more comfortable with Joe. I'm sure he actually WILL bring in some of the best people, not yes men as Trump does. It's going to be a big, big mess to clean up.

Fucking Trump. Inherited a strong economy and then just fucked everything up.

3. Trump is not just stupid, immoral, ignorant, corrupt, bigoted, narcissistic and a pathological liar

He's also completely incompetent. Except, of course, when it comes helping himself and his fellow oligarchs and corporatists.

There are Seven Deadly Sins in Catholic theology: Pride, Anger, Envy, Lust, Sloth, Avarice, Gluttony and Wrath. Trump has committed all of them.
