Donald Trump’s desperation appears to be showing.
Stopping to make a play for the trending-blue state of Nevada, Donald Trump slammed his Democratic opponent with perhaps the unkindest–and perhaps most-bizarre–attack yet.
Possibly confusing Joe Biden for the famous green Dr Seuss holiday character, Trump told his audience in Carson City that Biden planned to “cancel” Christmas.
Trump appeared to cast his weird claim as part of some hypothetical and imagined Biden measures to control the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Under the Biden lockdown, the lights of Reno and Las Vegas were extinguished. Carson City will become a ghost town. If he comes in, Carson City will become a ghost town. And Christmas season will be cancelled,” he said. “Look, remember I said we’re going to bring back Christmas, right, the name? Remember? We brought it back. Remember?”
Trump made the outlandish allegation nevermind that win or lose, he will still remain president through this year’s holiday season and that even as president-elect Biden would have zero political power until the inauguration on January 20, 2021.
This alone means that there could not be any “Biden lockdown” this year.
Nevermind that it’s not at all clear that any president could simply “cancel” any holiday.
Trump, apparently trying to thread a route to the needed 270 electoral votes required if he is to see a second term, is making a play for Nevada and its six electoral votes–despite the fact that no Republican presidential nominee has won the Silver State since George W Bush’s re-election in 2004.
Trump has consistently trailed Biden–often by double digits–in public opinion polling, both nationally and in key battleground states.
