Democrat nominee for President, Joe Biden gave his acceptance speech yesterday to an empty room. Although Biden did not experience any gaffes through the speech, he left very important policy issues out of the speech. Fox’s Dana Perino said, “In a three-sentence stanza, he said he was going to create millions of jobs through green investments by repealing the Trump tax cuts,” she said. “If you tease that out, I’m not exactly sure how that works”. She added, “But this was a speech that was 80% appealing to the heart and 20% policy.”
Karl Rove commented, “He had a balancing act here tonight. He was trying to balance two different things. One was portraying himself as a unifier who would bring the country together. He did so very effectively and if I were a Republican strategist in the Trump campaign, I’d be worried about how long and how effectively he carries that theme forward, because that’s the thing that will keep the swing voters in his camp, if they are in his camp, or bring them to him.” Rove noted that there was no mention of China in Biden’s remarks, nor was there any mention of the surge of violence in America’s cities. “I’ve looked back, I found four words in which he condemned violence one time, but other than that, they’ve been silent on it.”
CNN contributor Van Jones stated in a panel with Anderson Cooper after the speech, “That sound that you hear all across the country is the sound of Democrats exhaling,” he said. “That’s what that is. People would have accepted anything.” He added, “It was an extraordinary speech. And we were prepared for it to be a terrible speech. As long as he didn’t embarrass himself, we were going to come out here and praise him.”
Laura Ingraham host of Fox’s Ingraham Angle stated in her opening monologue after the conclusion of the DNC summed up the entire 4-day event by stating, “In what felt like at times a never-ending Zoom call with professional scolds, the 2020 virtual DNC finally, mercifully wrapped. And after all the Democrats’ gauzy tributes to Joe and their shameless lies about Trump, all we’re left with is the recognition that this is a party that has learned nothing since 2016″.
Ingraham continued, “Americans aren’t stupid. No matter how much Team Biden tries to hide the ball, they know he’ll kill the fracking industry, he’ll destroy what’s left of the steel industry when he lifts Trump’s trade tariffs on China. They know a Biden presidency will export good-paying jobs and import more crime and cheap labor.”
“They threw the word ‘dignity’ around a lot tonight and over the past four nights. But tonight, I’m going to ask you: Where is the dignity in taking an American’s job and shipping it to China? Where’s the dignity in rewarding the lawlessness in sanctuary cities? Where is the dignity in seeing Americans left defenseless when police are defunded? And where is the dignity and the empathy in keeping our kids out of the classroom in order to placate the teachers’ unions? Where’s all that compassion and not remaining silent as our cities are leveled by the Democrats’ most violent and cruel supporters?”
“Answer: There is zero dignity, there is zero compassion, there is zero empathy in any of that.” Ingraham concluded.
Biden brought up Charlottesville again and misquoted the President like he and other Democrat pundits have done on several occasions since 2017 by saying, “Just a week ago yesterday was the third anniversary of the events in Charlottesville. Remember seeing those neo-Nazis and Klansmen and white supremacists coming out of the fields with lighted torches? Veins bulging? Spewing the same anti-Semitic bile heard across Europe in the ’30s? Remember the violent clash that ensued between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it? Remember what the president said? There were quote, “very fine people on both sides.”
The President actually stated when asked about the presence of neo-Nazis at the rally, “you had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides.”
During the same press conference, President Trump went on to say “I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists because they should be condemned totally.”
After Biden’s acceptance speech, the President took to Twitter and stated, “In 47 years, Joe did none of the things of which he now speaks. He will never change, just words!”
In 47 years, Joe did none of the things of which he now speaks. He will never change, just words!

The DNC delegates altered the Pledge of Allegiance by omitting the words “Under God”. To close Biden, said “Thank you, and may God bless you, and may God bless our troops.
