New Biden campaign ad fights Trump BS fire with Trump BS fire

{ object.primary_image.title }}

In response to President Trump using Dr. Fauci’s words out of context, the Biden campaign did some selective quoting of Trump himself. One of the most common new hobbies over the past four years has been for critics of President Trump to retweet his old tweets that directly contradict something he’s said or done on any given day. There’s always a tweet, right? Last month, the Biden campaign used a 10-second clip of President Trump during a rally speech saying, “If I lose to him, I don’t know what I’m going to do. I will never speak to you again . . . . You’ll never see me again.” Read Full Story
