A friend shared this tweet via FB from Brian Tyler Cohen:  "Just checking in to see how the story on Hunter dropping off an incriminating laptop in DE while living in CA to a Trump-fan shop owner

Special counsel Robert Meuller’s investigation- partisan witch hunt Senate impeachment trial- we don’t want to hear any evidence Rudy shows up with a laptop- good enough for me 

The Hunter Biden thing is, at least for me, one of the most clear-cut examples of rational ignorance that I've encountered in quite a while.  I know there's a patina of corruption around Hunter Biden,

is this thread misnamed?  came in here thinking this was in regards to Biden.

carry on I guess.

You realize he is running against someone, right...compare and contrast seems fair game.

I thought this was the Hunter Biden thread.  Did that play itself out already?

No.  Hunter is under investigation.   The latest news and information involves stuff Joe doesn’t want on his website.  We are being respectful by staying out of the latest Hunter business

Holding 3-4 rallies a day means what?  He is able to lie to people who already like him?

In the basement...ofd as Ive seem him out campaigning and his schedule has him out campaigning...care to retract that inaccurate statement?

If you don’t fond hundreds of things about the last 4 years with Trump troubling, I have a hard time taking you seriously.

Biden was off all last week.  He was off yesterday until Trump flushed him out.  Sitting with his wife and confusing his opponent’s name on a video meeting isn’t exactly in the public rally?   Quit the falsehoods.

Of course...it was ineffective as an attack.

It was supposed to be the October surprise, but never got any resonance beyond Fox News or sites like Breitbart. Now it has been pretty much forgotten and anti-Biden crowd have moved on to other things.

Nothing i stated was false...it seems you are not here to have anything resembling a reasonable discussion...just bogus talking points.  Have fun.

No it means he’s out working hard jetting across he country to the biggest crowds we have ever seen in our lifetimes for a politician.

Meanwhile, Biden is being a lazy basement dweller and attracting nobody. When they made Biden pop out of his hole the other day to clean up his oil mess he melted down again. The guy is a total embarrassment.

Fair enough.  His choice of Palin made my decision easier.

When he selected Palin I thought it was rigged to lose. No way would I ever vote with anything with Palin on the ticket.

Working hard...yes, Im sure jetting around in AF1 is extremely difficult.  (yes, sense the sarcasm there).  Crowd size doesn't really have a thing to do with mental acumen.

The basement thing has already been stated and shown to be false...quit repeating it...his basement is not in PA, WI, or MI where he has been and is scheduled to travel to.  

If your last statement is about POTUS...I agree...I am embarrassed that this country ever elected him and that he even has a chance at all at re-election.  Its not a good look for America.

Unless you are operating in a vacuum, you can't discuss Biden in every single instance without occasionally mentioning Trump, as he, you know, is who Biden is running against. It is unrealistic to try to ban any mention of Trump for comparative purposes or contrast in this thread. This is not a Trump free zone.

But this is "Joe`s" thread.   Bash away at Trump is his thread. They each deserve their own space.

Something you saved?  Or dug back pretty deep to try and take a shot.  Pretty sad.

That was a fun day...beer run dressed as @Thunderlips  Though, I don't recommend a run in pretty high temps while wearing such a costume.

Not sure how that makes anything ironic...

The PSF demanded another Biden bashing thread? The Joe Biden thread is already full of that and this thread is superfluous.

This thread will claim many great anti Democrat/Biden posters. I believe we’ve already lost brothers jonmax, Tonydead and Buckosh in this struggle. We will soldier on though.

He was pointing out the damage done by the people in the crowds not wearing masks.  Every state that has a Trump rally is starting to experience spikes.  Minnesota has 3 super-spreaders out of his rallies already.  There's another one in the White House.  Having a government that ignores the consequences of the worst pandemic in 100 years is beyond ridiculous.

They said, sir, thank you for making the greatest, I mean, there have been good threads before but nothing as great as this thread.  Experiences posters, the likes of which you have never seen.  Some of these guys have millions of posts here and in the shark pool, they all said you have created the greatest thread not just in football guys.  how about those football guys, huh?  Tremendous things they are doing with the VDB.  Have you heard about the VDB?  Or as I call it Value drafting?  Have you seen what it does for tight ends?  We all love a good tight end, right?  You all know what I'm talking about.

Tony Bobulinski says he met with Joe Biden about China. The media have suppressed the story, but it’s real and it matters. Voters have a right to know the details. Bobulinski sits for an extended interview Tuesday night at 8p ET on #FoxNews

Must not take this open shot at QB.  

The irony of using the phrase "Peaceful Protest" to describe a rally -- apart from the obvious stuff about plagiarizing someone else's catchphrase, or reinforcing the belief that Republicans are out of ideas -- is that Trump supporters were convinced that the BLM protests were bad for Democrats. They were certain that the spring protests would lead to a Trump surge.

So, which is it? Do they really think protests are bad for the protesting group, as they claimed for months? Or do they now think that protests are good? Or do Republicans really have no other philosophy aside from criticizing the left while simultaneously envying it?

Riots are bad.  Looting is bad.  Assault is bad. Intimidating people just trying to live their lives is bad.  Disturbing the peace is bad. 
 

Holding up a sign and banging on your bongo drum and chanting on a street corner, I have no problem with that.  
 

I think most people would agree.

I have always been concerned about crowds and the spread of COVID going back to when the first protests began about the George Floyd killing by police.

NBC News

Quote

 

Eight days before the 2020 election, you would think that major media outlets would be extra vigilant about publishing potentially misleading video of presidential candidates.

But on Monday morning, NBC News’ Today show irresponsibly aired a deceptively edited clip of Joe Biden, which appears to have originated with the Trump campaign, and purports to show the former vice president mixing up Presidents Donald Trump and George W. Bush.

In a video package about the final week of the campaign, which began with the story about a new COVID-19 outbreak among Vice President Mike Pence’s staff, White House correspondent and recent debate moderator Kristen Welker reported that Biden was “making headlines overnight after appearing to confuse his opponent’s name.”

The clip in question came from a celebrity-filled “I Will Vote” concert live stream Sunday night. “Four more years of, George, uh, George… we’re going to find ourselves in a position where Trump gets elected, we’re going to be in a different world.”

“It comes as the former vice president was pressed to respond to the president’s claims that Biden is not mentally fit to serve,” Welker added before playing another clip of Biden dismissing those claims on 60 Minutes. NBC News did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The reality of that moment, and the origin of the video, however, tell a very different story.

The “George” to whom Biden was referring was not, in fact, George W. Bush, but instead comedian George Lopez, who was interviewing the former vice president and his wife along with CNN and The View commentator Ana Navarro.

In a direct message to The Daily Beast, Navarro broke down what actually happened. “George Lopez and I hosted a two and a half hour GOTV virtual concert in support of Biden-Harris,” she wrote. “Joe and Jill Biden spent some time with us at the beginning of the show. It was light banter and laughs.”

“In the clip that’s being circulating, Joe Biden was responding to and addressing George,” Navarro continued. “That’s the George he was referring to. I know it may come as a shock to some Trump supporters, but some Latinos are named ‘George.’ Not everyone is Jose and Maria.”

Finally, she added, “It’s not surprising that the Trump campaign would lie about the clip and take it out of context. But frankly, I had higher expectations for NBC News.”

The provenance of the clip appears to be the “Trump War Room” Twitter account, which on Sunday night posted the exact same 12 seconds that NBC later aired. From there, it got passed around right-wing Twitter overnight until landing in a splashy story on Fox News’ website Monday morning with the headline, “Joe Biden appears to confuse Trump with former President George W. Bush.”

To its credit, Fox has since changed the headline and lede of that story. “GOP accuses Joe Biden of confusing his opponent after ‘George’ comment,” the new headline reads. The first paragraph now explains that while “Republicans on Monday accused Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden of confusing President Trump’s name” during an interview, “observers hit back by pointing out that Biden may have been referring to his interviewer, comedian George Lopez.”

In a statement to Fox News, Biden campaign spokesperson Andrew Bates said that the candidate was “addressing George Lopez, the interviewer, as is a common practice—that is, unless, like Donald Trump, you blow a gasket and storm out because you can’t stomach being fact-checked.”

Later on Monday afternoon, NBC News added an editor’s note to its website that reads, “The video of Joe Biden talking about the 2020 election and ‘four more years of George...’ came from an interview that Biden did Sunday with George Lopez. The fact that Biden was talking with George Lopez was relevant and helpful context that should have been included in the original report.”

Of course, none of this has stopped Trump’s allies from pushing the literal fake-news story as far and wide as they can.

Fox News pundit Brit Hume retweeted the Fox story with its original headline even after it had been updated, along with the comment, “Wondering why Biden has gone to ground again? This may help explain it.”

“It’s getting beyond ridiculous. This guy is not up for the job. The left is using him to get in their radicals,” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted on Monday along with the clip. “Did Biden think he was running against George Bush or George Washington?”

And then there’s the president himself who worked the bit into his latest rally speech in Pennsylvania. “He can’t remember my name!” Trump said of Biden on Monday. “Now, I’m not that big of an ego guy, but I’m the candidate and I happen to be president. He could not remember my name yesterday, this is what you’re putting in office!”

Now, thanks to NBC News, potential voters will be unable to outright dismiss those lies.

 

Desperate times call for desperate measures.....

On the Trump rallies - he draws huge crowds but do they improve his chances to win? The people attending the rallies are no doubt already voting for him and motivated to do so. The rallies are for the base, not to attract new voters. Does anyone think that undecided voters go to his rallies?

His base is strong, loud and come out in large numbers when he comes to town. But I doubt that the rallies get him any closer to a victory.

Don't care.  Still enthusiastically voting Biden.

He was talking to George Lopez and nothing in his reply shows that he was confused about who he is running against.

No. It sounds to me like he says "Four more years..." and then starts a new sentence with, "George..."

It's similar to when Obama said "F...ifty......seven...states?" He's combining two separate thoughts into a single sentence, which is a common mistake among the inelegant.
