So, the same guy who said during the 2012 campaign that Mitt Romney would put black people back in chains has decided on a race-baiting campaign to get himself elected.
Biden said in a video released Thursday morning that President Trump had assigned moral equivalence to the white supremacists at Charlottesville in 2017 and the protestors.
“In that moment, I knew the threat to this nation was unlike any I had ever seen in my lifetime,” Biden said. “I wrote at the time that we’re in a battle for the soul of this nation. Well, that’s even more true to today.”
Biden added that “history will look back, on four years of this president and all he embraces, as an aberrant moment in time. But if we give Donald Trump eight years in the White House, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation — who we are — and I cannot stand by and watch that happen.”
So, you know, this isn’t about him. Biden felt obligated to run. Of course.
Biden also is announcing as if the rest of the Democratic field doesn’t exist. By going after Trump, he’s suggesting that he already is the Democratic nominee, trying to create an air of inevitability. That will end pretty quickly.
