The Hill: Trump campaign steps up attacks on Biden

Trump campaign steps up attacks on Biden

(snip) Trump campaign officials spent the weekend circulating Biden’s latest campaign trail foibles, led by a goofy moment of the former vice president nipping at his wife’s fingers on stage at a campaign rally.

(snip) Separately, the Trump campaign attacked Biden for dubbing his latest Iowa swing the “No Malarkey” tour, describing the term as outdated and indicative of a campaign that has run out of ideas.

(snip) While the attacks from Trump allies have sought to convince voters that Biden is a weak candidate in decline, the focus on the former vice president also appears to underscore views in some Trump circles that Biden could be a strong challenger — particularly in the states of Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin that were the keys to the president’s 2016 victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Trump insiders told The Hill that they’d continue to focus their attacks on Biden for the time being, as most still view him as the likeliest Democrat to win the nomination and the most competitive in a one-on-one match-up against the president.

“He’s still the front-runner and the likeliest to win the nomination,” said one former Trump campaign official. “And I think of all the Democrats, he’s still the most likely to have a competitive race against Trump. Of course, that comes with the massive asterisk that he could totally implode at any moment.”

3. "Steps up attacks"? They never let up attacking Biden, for months now.

 

Of course, a more honest headline like "Trump campaign continues to attack Biden" isn't as likely to get clicks.

4. According to Oxford Dictionaries, malarkey is "meaningless talk;

 

nonsense," it came into use in the 1920s and its specific origin is unknown. There is an Irish name — Mullarkey.

7. I don't think I remember....

 

.... the last time Trump or anyone in the GOP has mentioned any other candidates name other than Biden's. Anybody have a guess as to why that is?

9. Unrec for the discredited Hill spreading Trump talking points.

The Rot on The Hill
John Solomon's role in laundering Trump's Ukraine scandal is just the latest black mark on the dodgy D.C. newspaper.

10. Gee.

 

I posted this one as a positive for Biden: " (Trump campaign officials) ... view him as the likeliest Democrat to win the nomination and the most competitive in a one-on-one match-up against the president" - and highlighted it.

I won't make that mistake again.
