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 he’s 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.

So it came as a surprise to me too.

But yes, glad he’s going for it!

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.
