Biden is hosed, and many Democrats are frantically heading for the exits!
During his opening monologue on Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher reacted to President Joe Biden’s announcement earlier this week that he’ll build part of a border wall by stating that “even Biden now is admitting that the migrant crisis is real” and Biden has to pivot to the center. He also mocked Democrats who are criticizing Biden for the move by remarking that those Democrats are saying, “we know it’s in our platform, that it says secure the border, but we didn’t think you’d actually do something about it.”
Even in this Maher is WAY too kind. Team Biden never had the slightest intention of actually doing something. And they absolutely won’t. This is all just fool-the-rubes shyster-ism! Maybe the Biden cabal will eventually get shamed into something. But even that is probably a bridge too far for them.
Because THEN how would they explain themselves? “Yeah, when Trump moved to secure the border it was because he was RACIST. But OUR motives for doing the exact same things are pure as the driven snow!“
Suuuure. Just as you say…
See, they are in a no-win situation on this: If they actually DO something they are admitting that Trump was fundamentally right and they were fundamentally wrong. And if they don’t move to secure the border they face a public backlash of epic proportions!
So, all they can do is split the difference: Pretend in public that they are securing the border and make a few lethargic, half-hearted moves in that direction, but actually do nothing…
