Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has come clean.
At a rally in Atlanta on Tuesday, the former vice president — apparently jokingly — introduced himself as Kamala Harris’s running mate, the Washington Examiner reported.
“My name is Joe Biden,” Biden said, “I’m Jill Biden’s husband, and I’m Kamala’s running mate. Y’all think I’m kidding, don’t you?”
A puppet for the left?
Biden’s quip in Atlanta carries more truth behind it than most on the left are willing to admit. In the eyes of President Donald Trump and many of his supporters, Biden is a puppet for a radical agenda who will be ushered in by the likes of Harris and the Democratic Party.
Vice President Mike Pence himself said as much during a campaign in Nevada earlier this month. “You know, when you look at their agenda it’s clear, I said this at Fort McHenry — Joe Biden would be nothing more than a Trojan horse for the radical left,” he said, according to the Nevada Independent.
Biden’s declining health has already led many to believe that if elected, the former vice president will not serve all four years of his term.
Since many voters believe that Biden won’t be president for long, Harris becomes a much more important figure than a typical presidential challenger’s running mate. In some respects, it seems a vote for Biden is really a vote for Harris.
With that knowledge in mind, it is worth questioning if California’s junior senator is able and fit to lead the nation. Harris has repeatedly demonstrated that she is not honest about her views and isn’t afraid to flip-flop on important issues.
Huge opportunity for Trump
It’s because of these policies that President Trump’s re-election campaign has a huge opportunity. Democrat voters soundly rejected Harris in the primaries, as Politico reported, and moderates are unlikely to like her any more than the Democratic base.
If Trump can show moderate Americans that voting Democrat is voting for Harris to eventually ascend to the presidency, then the race might be all but over for the Democratic Party.
Biden’s campaign relies on fooling the American people and hiding the reality of what they intend to do once they win the election.
With the help of the media and Silicone Valley, this strategy has been working for them. But Biden’s overconfident quips may be exactly what Trump’s campaign needs to triumph Nov. 3.
