He took his cues from this black man who had more power than him and was virtually unknown when he took the presidency, and Joe Biden had been around forever. He was willing and proud to be his wing man. Not once did he try to undermine him, this black man. Instead Joe walked in lockstep with him, he respected him, he loved and trusted him. He was lead by him and he learned from him. And Joe did not have a problem with it. You tell me what 40+ year “establishment” white politician has ever done that. Joe Biden is cut from a different cloth. And black folks understand that and for good reason. He has shown it. This is what showing up and being an ally looks like. When black people say they know Joe, this is how we know."
On April 1, 20201, Laurie made here position about as clear as it gets, reposting from Daiana Rodham Leitner, "We get it - 30% of people voting in the Democratic primary are buying the idea that you're the fucking Vermont Messiah and your way is the only way and nobody needs a fucking plan to beat the man! 🐦Also, there are some kids that don't vote but love to post memes and hit up rallies. Just smacks you in the face with the reality that a fuck ton of well-meaning people are in need of some serious time with a basic Civics curriculum.
However, we don't *really* need to see that reality play out in a bunch more primaries that aren't prepared to pivot to mail-in ballots overnight, do we? No, we do not. We need for those states to get their shit together for the general and the rest of us need to do that too. We need to focus on Joe and down-ballot races, ESPECIALLY the senate. So please, drop the fuck out, Bernie. Just #StayTheFuckHome already."
