Trump Makes Last-Ditch Play to Reclaim Seniors

Source: U.S. News and World Report

Donald Trump pleaded with senior citizens Friday to stick with him, promising free vaccines and therapeutics to help them fight the coronavirus and painting an apocalyptic picture of a Biden administration that would strip them of Medicare and Social Security benefits in a last-ditch pitch to reclaim an important voting bloc that's increasingly supporting his challenger.

"I will protect you, I will defend you, I will fight for you with every ounce of energy and conviction that I have," the president said Friday afternoon in Fort Myers. "You devoted your life to this country and I am devoting my life to you."

The pledge comes as polls show Trump shedding support at an alarming rate from seniors a demographic he handily won in 2016 by 7 points.

The most recent national polls, including one from CNN/SSRS and another from The Wall Street Journal/NBC News, found the former vice president with more than a 20-point lead over Trump among voters 65 and older.

2. I like the word...

Conviction!

Let's hope he gets convicted.

4. Come on Donnie Deuschbag, ask them, "What do have to lose?"

I'm sure that will convince them to keep you in charge of the COVID-19 response.

5. Did I hear Trump say (in an excerpt) at his town hall that he appreciates

the sacrifice seniors have made? Does he mean dying because they supported his herd immunity strategy?

Incidentally, I don't think it was a strategy until he got hammered for not having a plan.

12. Yes. Seniors HAVE made sacrifices! We've also been undermined by Trump & others not

wearing a mask. Besides the fact that he wants to end healthcare, Social Security, Medicare, etc. & make us all sick, homeless & dead! Sure, we can really feel confident voting for this impeached murdering mob boss!

6. Maybe he is hoping their memories are bad and they don't remember

him saying that losing seniors to Covid was a small price we will have to pay to beat it months ago.

Today he was doing a 180 and was "acting" compassionate and empathetic, two character traits he has never possessed.

7. I'm surprised he hasn't suggested

that seniors who develop the virus refuse treatment as not to put a strain on the economy.

Just stay home, don't make a fuss, and die quietly, oldies? (I'm an oldie myself)

Maybe offering free funerals might persuade them?

9. If senior citizens vote for this jackass who is trying to give them COVID19

they deserve what they get.

10. "free vaccines and therapeutics"

When will republicans accuse Trump of being a communist for promising "free stuff."

11. The strange thing is...

Trump is actively trying to kill Social Security by eliminating the payroll tax - and the people he is pandering to know that. Seniors aren't stupid, but apparently Trump is.
