Thursday during CNN’s Thursday night coverage of the Democratic National Convention, propagandist Joy Reid said Joe Biden is a “regular Joe” who went after Trump’s “white working-class” base in his acceptance speech.
“This night, the whole presentation of it I think was directed directly at white working-class voters, which is what he’s not supposed to be able to win…” Reid began. “There was a temptation for a moment that after South Carolina Joe Biden could develop the theory that he is the candidate that can deliver black voters because that’s what happened in South Carolina, but he’s clearly learned that he brought on a running mate who can expand his coalition and energize the Obama coalition, but that his superpower is who he is.
“He is a white, working-class voter. He is the thing that Donald Trump pretended to be in 2016, the regular Joe,” Reid added. “He’s literally called Joey throughout all of these videos by his family members. He’s Joey. He’s a guy, you know. He is a white, working-class voter. And he came right for Donald Trump’s base tonight.”
The idea that Biden connects with “regular, working class” guys better than Trump is delusional. Even more so is the notion he could ever win over anyone from Trump’s base.
