I call both Trump and Biden various comical names like "the annoying orange". I'm pretty sure Stephen Colbert does the same. He does take time out to make fun of Biden too. The idea that if you nickname one, you must love the other, simply isn't so.

No, it's just funny, like calling Trump the Bad Orange Man.

Yawn, Trump Rationally Is Probably More of An Existential
Threat to the Republican Party than A Threat to Democracy;

It's Not Hard to See Empirically So With the Fall of The Senate
into The Side of the Democrats That Provided The Ability for
The Democrats to Pass So Much Legislation For the 'Common
Man And Or Woman' As Such With Again the Example of Subsidies
For Obama Care Extended Three Years That Will Save my Sister 300 Dollars
A Month Until She Reaches 65 And Gets Great Medicare For Under 200 Dollars A Month

Perhaps With a Medicare Advantage Plan For A Hundred Or So Dollars More Per Month
Covering Most All A to Z Except For Vision And Dental Care So far; Perhaps One Day That Will Change.

So, 'The Trump Regime' On the Sidelines Continues to Push Candidates That Aren't Worth Enough Salt
For The Politics of Actually Winning And Odds Makers Put the Democrats Still in Control of the Senate

And Even the Rarer Possibility
of Retaining The House in A Mid-Term
Election Same As the Party of the President At Hand;

Sure, We May Thank the Wedge Issue the Democrats Now
Own With the Rights For a Woman For Reproductive Freedoms
And Basic Frigging Health Care Specific to A Woman's Health.

Sure, We May Thank The Obvious Threat That Trump Provides to
Overthrowing Democracy As Well; And While It's True if Trump Were
To Fall ALL The Way Away and DeSaTaNiS Could Win the 2024 Election;

True, We Could Lose More Liberties Yet It Isn't Likely DeSaTaNiS is Ignorant

Enough
TO Risk
Going to Jail

As Trump Is Just
Plain Psychopathically
Leaning Sociopathic in
Regard to Full Blown Criminality
Without Even Any Hiding it or Shame.

It's Not Often When 'Human Evil Incarnate'
Takes the Leadership AS Such; However, Ignorance
IN Particularly a Tradition Still Desiring Theocratic Control

of Government Is the Same Ruse That the Roman Empire Used too;

And Of Course Many Other Civilizations That Mixed Placebo and Nocebo
Effects With Traditions of Religion to Master, Subjugate, And Restrict Human
Freedoms For Power, Status, and Material Gains of Those Psychopathic Leaning Leaders;

Of Course God Yes Including
Leaders in Church; Pedophile
Pastors and Priests too the
Psychopathic Leaning Cr8p

Aspect of Humans Still
With Cold Souls as Even
Studies Show the Clergy
Rates in the Top 10 List
of Psychopathic Leaning Traits...

KEY IS BE A SMART LOVING CHIMP AND OR BONOBO
Choose the Leader Fearless in LoVE, Empathy; Yes, Compassion
For the Least of the Group Too in An All Hands Effort For Will And

From A Foundation
of Balancing Graceful
Peace and Love For Real To

Rise or Fall; Yet A Most Dangerous

Pandemic oF ALL Is Human Ignorance
That Harms, Rapes, Maims, And Kills the

Listen, i LiVE iN Trump Town USA (One of Many) And i interact With More
Folks Than Most Folks Might Possibly Imagine to Do here; And The Common

Element of This 'Trump

Town' is Blindness;

The Kind of Blindness

That Comes Sadly From

A Religion of Church And
Politics the Same Promising
Faux Carrots and Sticks After Death

to Master, Subjugate, and Control the
Freedoms of the Masses and Sure the
Protestant Congregations too; It's the World's

Longest Lasting 'Big Lie' Although It Doesn't Have to Be

That Way if Folks Worship A 'GOD OF ReaLiTY' More Than Abstract Made-Up Constructs.

Neuroscience Shows the Human 'Condition' isn't Rational At Core; It's Driven Most
By Feeling Sensing Emotions Head to Toe First Most Before We Even Think About

The Reasons For
What We Do in
The Past and
What We May
Do in the Future Now too...

Humans are Basically The Same
Humans We Were 12 to 40,000 Years
Ago as Classical Evolution is Slow; We Still
Have the Potential to Be As strong As Orangutans

And We Still Have the Potential to Devolve into Whatever
Horrible Cultures That Have Been Ignorantly Supported Before;

What We Have to Our Advantage Now is Freedom Of Information
Spread Globally More Than Ever Before; Perhaps Ignorance Will Grow Less

or More

This Experiment

Is Still On The Mold

of Change AS Humanity

Has Always Been one of
Constant Cultural Changes,

We Can And Will Make Heaven And
Or HeLL ON EartH Yet As Long As Folks

Believe in the After Life More Than the
Reality of This Life Blind So Many Folks

Will Continue As Victim to Mastery, Subjugation,
And Control of Freedoms From Others Still To Gain

Trump-Like Selfish Power, Status, and Material Gains;

Be A Slave or Be Free Yet For Some it's A Very Difficult Choice

As Again the
Human Condition
Is Far From Rational

And Will Be Molded into
Heaven, Purgatory, or Hell
Depending on All of US Next;

The Greatest Powers Human Beings
Have, The Greatest Curses Human Beings
Have STiLL Are Our Unlimiting iMaGiNaTioNS
And Co-Creativities to Create Hell to HeaveN ON EartH;

Indeed We Need A World

True, Trump is An 'Old Testament God' So Many Folks
Still Dream of On Earth Still Finding Joy "Bashing
The Heads of the Children of Opposing Tribes Now"

HeLLuVA
Metaphor
That STiLL IS...

Other Than That Once Again A
'Trump Town USA' Where the Most
Despicable Yes of Despicable Human

Now This Sleepy Bedroom Community Outside of the Core

Understand That Among those Most Silver Haired

They Put So Called God First Above All Else For Whatever
Their God Ruler From the Pulpit Directs Them to Do; Politics

Is Religion Here in Hopes of Bringing an 'Old Testament God' Back to Rule

And True Trump Encompasses 'That Little Man Personality Syndrome' of that God Most

As of Course
The Folks Who

Had the Similar Toxic

Hmm, Imagine A Different Kind of
Human Believing 'God' Kinda Creature
Who Empties Their Pockets And Only

It's True It's Possible to Create That God of

(i Still Have A Picture of

Yawn, Most Folks Aren't

It's what They do to Get A

"Dark Brandon," is more a term of endearment used by Biden appreciators, not haters. It's a play on the stupid "let's go brandon," thing that nascar magas started, and describes Biden when he shows a bit of feisty attitude towards hate filled magas.

Even Kamala Harris knows this isn't defensible and employs her keenly honed ducking skills to dodge the question:

https://www.mediaite.com/news/kamala-ha ... publicans/

Quote:
Following President Joe Biden’s primetime speech in which he claimed Democracy is “under assault,” Vice President Kamala Harris was put on the spot about Democrats helping out those who Biden accused of assaulting it.

In an interview on Meet the Press Sunday, Chuck Todd grilled the vice president about the controversial practice of Democrats across the country propping up extreme Republicans in their primary races by purchasing ads promoting them. Some Democrats are employing this strategy because they believe extremist opponents to be easier to defeat in general elections.

Harris began by defending Biden’s remarks — which some have criticized for being too divisive.

“There are those who right now are vividly not defending our Democracy,” Harris said. “And I think we want that our commander in chief, the President of the United States will speak up and raise the alarm about what this means to our strength, and our future — much less our integrity.”

Todd then asked the obvious follow-up: If the threat posed to Democracy by such candidates is truly so grave, then why are Democrats elevating them?

“When you see the Democratic Party, and some parts of the party, funding ads to promote some of these election deniers in primaries — whether it’s Michigan, the high-profile race there, Illinois, Colorado, New Hampshire — it looks a little bit cynical,” Todd said. “And the president went out of his way to say there are good Republicans here. Should you leave the good Republicans alone in a primary? Is the Democratic Party making a mistake here?”

Harris completely dodged the question.

“Listen, I’m not going to tell people how to run their campaigns,” Harris said.

Todd re-framed the question in a manner that allowed Harris to weigh in without commentating on anyone else’s campaign.

“Would you have done this?” Todd asked. “Is this something you’d be comfortable with.”

“I’m not going to tell people how to run their campaigns, Chuck,” Harris replied. She added, “I know that it is best to let a candidate, along with their advisers, let them make the decision based on what they believe is in the best interest of their state.”

Todd tried a third time to get Harris to answer the question.

“You’re not worried that this reflects poorly on the Democrats?” Todd asked.

“I think that what we have to focus on is that in 60 days, as of this interview, in less than two months, we are looking at a midterm election in which so much is on the line,” Harris said — ducking the question a third time.

Sounds like she responded with words to me. Makes sense that she would say she's not going to tell others how to run their campaigns or decide what's best in their state. How would you expect her to answer a question like that? If she knew the exact strategy, do you expect her to reveal it? If she had nothing to do with the decision, would you expect her to speculate and comment on it or criticize it? Seems she answered appropriately to me.

What I expected her to do and what she should have done are two different things. I feel soo strongly that this tactic will at best further destroy the Democrats credibility and at worst will put MAGA’s in positions to muck up the 2024 elections that I would publicly criticize a family member if they were a campaign manager employing this strategy.

I am shocked and glad Chuck Todd asked the question.
