{ 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

Biden taps Samuel L. Jackson for a powerful new ad: ‘Vote, dammit, vote!’

{ object.primary_image.title }}

“If your vote didn’t matter, they wouldn’t try so hard to take it from you.” The Biden-Harris campaign released a new ad that at first glance plays into all the right-wing sneering around the Democratic Party’s long-standing tendency to enlist celebrity endorsement—and the idea of liberal Hollywood trying to tell real ‘Muricans how they should live their lives. But here Samuel L. Jackson actually subverts the whole celebrity spokesperson dynamic by saying you shouldn’t vote just because he wants you to. You should vote because Trump doesn’t want you to.

It’s the one infographic you need to see this year, even though you already know what it says. Donald Trump has often been called a reality show president. But it may be more apt to call him a reality show business man.
