Blaming Joe Biden for this fiasco is like blaming a bystander for a automotive accident. Donald Trump was driving the automotive, and he was decided to crash and burn. Biden tried to chop via the noise and discuss to the American folks, which he did with more success than one might have thought possible under the circumstances.
Voters noticed via what was occurring and deemed Biden the winner.
Trump’s self-destruction was a mixture of his pent up want for consideration, his persona, and the stress of understanding that he’s dropping the election.
The Biden marketing campaign would fortunately let Trump implode two extra instances on the controversy.
The controversy might need been Trump’s final likelihood to achieve floor. As a substitute of rising to the second, Trump set himself on hearth and celebrated as his presidency burned.
