Trump's Allies Want to Clintonize Joe Biden

Donald Trump is clearly spooked by Joe Bidenóbut some of the presidentís supporters say thereís an easy solution: Make Biden out to be Hillary Clinton, just older and with a longer record of not getting things done in Washington.

Go ahead and try, Biden and his advisers say, offering a list of reasons why they believe that strategy wonít work. Though an old white man is not a history-making candidate like Clinton, Bidenís advisers know their candidate benefits from not being a woman, which they think will save him from the sexism and misogyny that defined 2016. They plan to lean into Bidenís personal story of family tragedy to reinforce what they see as his core image of decency, possibly making Trumpís attacks harder to stick. They also believe that running against Trump will allow the 76-year-old former vice president, who first came to Washington, D.C., 47 years ago, to come off as the candidate of change.

1. Gonna be hard

 

They had a 20 year head start on reimagining Hillary Climton as Satan's right hand, and the results even then were just barely enough.

3. Trump is still bitter that he DID NOT win the popular vote....

 

And nor will he if Joe Biden is the Nominee. For Joe is the humble man from humble beginnings, who remained humble despite it all.

2. Trumpy is mad becauise Joe went after him right out of the gate.....

 

By bringing up Charlottesville. Biden is not intimidated by Trump at all. Joe knows all the tricks and where Trump's Achilles heel is....his EGO!


Which is why the more Trump attacks Joe Biden, the stronger he makes Biden. Biden represents a threat to his power grab and the enthusiasm of Democrats to show up in larger numbers to vote him out of office. Joe can win back the states Trump won.

8. Love it....

 

Joe has been around the block more times than Trump will ever in 100 lifetimes.

Joe Biden will make Trump feel immaterial by speaking the truth and that Trump will not like that.

9. They did it to Kerry too. It's good Biden's team is prepared to counter it.

 

Kerry did not have an effective counter strategy and that hurt him.

12. So true -

 

Ignoring the Swiftboating too long, and responding slowly was not good strategy.

11. "save him from the sexism and misogyny that defined 2016" - needed, but ... sigh.

 

We need Trump OUT ASAP, even if it means we have to accept the &%&^(_ misogyny for another cycle.

But it really does piss me off.
