Joe Biden's Kickoff Next Wednesday in Charlottesville is a Strong, Profound Message
The Charlottesville kickoff will be a meaningful shot across the bow, a strong reminder of who exactly we're dealing with when it comes to the Trumpster and his hateful enablers. No one should forget the neo-Nazi sympathizers with their tiki torches chanting antisemitic slogans or the death of Heather Heyer or the infamous, Trumpian reaction:
"I'm sure there are fine people on both sides."
In that moment the Trumpster revealed himself as a wanna-be white nationalist and no decent human being should ever forget the disgusting display of ignorance and hate manifested during that rally.
I think this choice is brilliant on Biden's part. Start knocking teeth on Day 1.
I expect the whole dynamic will change after the announcement. And you're right, Biden is absolutely the most qualified, ready to go on Day 1!
I read elsewhere that hes announcing online on Thursday. Charlottesville is a no-go.
rumor. I should have double checked the original source. MSNBC is now reporting a video announcement on Thursday followed by a rally/speech in Pittsburgh sometime Monday.
The good news is we have a go.
Biden has a facebook presence but the page isn't very active. American Possibilities appears to have been used for 2018 election donations & signups (although there is a line to 'join Joe's team') and the Biden Foundation is reportedly being closed.
I'm assuming they'll announce the 2020 online presence after the official announcement.
