Trump's problem in Tulsa wasn't just empty seats. It was empty rhetoric.

In his first campaign rally since the pandemic lockdowns began and Joe Biden clinched the Democratic presidential nomination, President Trump made clear — as clear as a stream-of-consciousness Trump speech can — how he plans to run against Biden: He won’t, not directly.

Instead, Trump will run against dual, intertwined caricatures.

First, against Biden as a doddering facsimile of his former self — someone who, as Trump suggested in Tulsa on Saturday night, confuses his wife with his sister, who doesn’t comprehend the talking points written for him by the “great students in English lit” who now work for Biden.

Second, against “the extremism and destruction and violence of the radical left” and against the Democratic Party as a “left-wing mob” to which the supposedly feeble Biden “has surrendered.”

As Trump argued, “If the Democrats gain power, then the rioters will be in charge and no one will be safe and no one will have control. Joe Biden is not the leader of his party. Joe Biden is a helpless puppet of the radical left.”

1. Just more fear mongering and scapegoating, the usual for a damn fascist.

2. He didn't mention the 120K dead Americans, the millions of people out of work, the hurt, pain and

anger that the nation is feeling due to racial unrest. He offered no solutions. I don't think he has enough people that want to hear him riff and air grievances to sustain re-election.

Americans have real problems and they want real solutions. He offers none.

Having said that. Dems need to work hard because there will be a lot of voter suppression because they know they cannot win fair and square.
