Playing Second Fiddle

"Let me explain something to you about Joe Biden and why some of the shit that he’s done in his past doesn’t matter. This old rich white man played second fiddle to a black man. Not just any black man, but a younger black man, a smart black man. Not just for a day. Not 1, not 2 but eight years.

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."

Thank you Washington State!


Jacquelyn's Voice

Nobody asked her. Not the elevator operator. Not the janitors. Not the guards or the help. Who to endorse for President of the United States was decided by what I can only imagine are millionaires making very large salaries, enjoying shareholder stock and making decisions based on what's in their own best interest.
Fox News described Jacquelyn, an elevator operator at The New York Times, as an "ordinary worker". We see two everyday Joes and Janes. There was a time when we didn't want polished slick-talkers that were robotic. Now we criticize candidates like Joe for being too human, too down-to-earth. We have a president in the White House who's federal tax system rewards billionaires and punishes the "ordinary worker" all in the name of "creating jobs". We're all already working. If you ask me, a down-to-earth human being is exactly who we need leading this country.
Do everyday Joes, Janes, Jacquelyn's, Jamals and Jose's matter? Do Black voices matter?

It didn’t have to be this bad — and as @MichelleObama said, “Our commander in chief, sadly, has been missing in action.” It’s unforgivable.

I’m deeply sorry for your loss, Fiana. Your mom and your family are in my thoughts and prayers always. She didn’t deserve this. She deserved the support of our government and our health care system in her time of need. She deserved better from us. I’m in this fight to help millions of families like yours. As President, I will get this virus under control and work to make sure that families no longer have to experience the pain and loss that you did because of COVID-19. Thank you for sharing your story with me.
