Democrats sell the narrative that any of their candidates can beat Trump. How funny!
The notion is truly laughable, given that the Democrats’ top candidate got her ass kicked royally by The Donald. Put another way, if Hillary Clinton can’t beat Trump, no Democrat, RINO or other NeverTrumper can either.
Enter Stage Center: sleepy, creepy Joe Biden.
The guy who can’t even get his BFF Barack to endorse him—not that an endorsement by Obama is any great shakes. But far worse for Biden looms his real problem: NGASAH. That’s an acronym for “Nobody gives a sh*t about him.”
Don’t believe me; check out Politico’s report:
Attendance at the former vice president’s launch rally paled next to some of his rivals. In his first Iowa visit, he didn’t match the crowds that greeted Elizabeth Warren or even the less well-known Pete Buttigieg in their initial visits. So far, he’s kept his events to smaller venues where there’s little danger of empty seats.
Joe Biden mimics Hillary Clinton, as Democrats know he’s the wrong candidate to challenge Trump. Sadly for Democrats, they don’t have anybody else. So Democrats get Biden by default.
The Daily Beast pretty much gave the same excuse for Biden that they gave to Hillary Clinton, writing:
You didn’t expect us to just let Uncle Joe coast to victory, did you? Where’s the fun without the Sturm und Drang?
In case you missed it, a media narrative developed this week to give pragmatic Democrats something new to worry about: Joe Biden’s “enthusiasm gap.”
The story goes like this: “He’s dominating in the polls, his fundraising is going gangbusters and he’s showing broad support from key political players in the early presidential states,” observed Politico this week. “So where are the big energetic crowds, the lines around the block to get into Joe Biden’s events?”
This raises several related questions: (1) Do large crowds correlate to winning, (2) should Joe Biden worry about the absence of large crowds, and (3) could said worrying be counterproductive?
How are things with Trump?
For over two years now, President Trump continues with his rallies. Trump stays in front of his base essentially to shove Leftists’ heads in his crotch. With each rally Trump shows Leftists that his base supports him. And you can bet that with his performance in his first two-plus years, Trump gained many Democrat supporters as well.
For Democrats, Trump is like a bad period, as he holds rallies about once a month.
But as the election approaches, the Trump cycle will be far more than once a month. So the cramps will get worse for Leftists.
To see any Democrat candidate, you have no wait. Just show up. But not with Trump.
In his rally in Orlando, reports show people lining up forty hours in advance of the event. Certainly there is a bit more pomp and circumstance than normal, as the president will announce his plan to run again in 2020. Nevertheless, that doesn’t really matter. Just a formality for even the most casual observer.
40 hours before the event. In the heat of an Orlando summer. People wait for Trump.
I have an idea. Why doesn’t some brave Democrat see if they can steal some of Trump’s thunder? I’d love to see one of his so-called challengers hold a competing rally in Orlando. Anybody think that 20,000 people will brave the Florida heat to see Harris or Buttigieg? And what about sleepy creepy Joe?
Here’s what one outlet reported:
Eight Trump supporters started camping out Monday morning, with the first one showing up at 2:30 a.m. The rally is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. Tuesday.
Gary Beck, a Trump supporter from Panama City, was the first in line.
“There’s going to be a bunch of people, and it’s going to be pretty intense,” Beck said. “The electricity is going to be high. It’s time for America to get back on its feet and be made better than it’s ever been before.”
Trump tweeted Monday that the rally “looks to be setting records,” with more than 100,000 ticket requests. The Amway Center seats 20,000.
“We are building large movie screens outside to take care of everybody,” Trump tweeted.
If you think 100,000 marks an amazing number, then check out the update. Now the report is that there are over 250,000 ticket requests.
Even for President Trump, this rally represents more than business as usual. It shows the momentum building for Trump’s presidency. No matter what lies or other fake narratives the Democrats offer, nothing they can fathom comes close to Trump’s reality.
Democrats make themselves feel good with fake polls. Oddly, they seem to forget these polls predicted Hillary’s landslide win. But leftists know what’s coming in 2020. The good news is their loss won’t hurt quite as bad as in 2016.
