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?

82 days.

[email protected] is going to stand with me in this campaign — and all of us are going to stand up for her. Together, we're going to make history.
Joe Biden
The hard truth is Black women still only get paid 62 cents for every dollar white men make. It's unacceptable. My administration will work to close the pay gap for Black women and create an economy where everyone gets a fair return for their work. #BlackWomensEqualPayDay
Joe Biden
I know @KamalaHarris will work every single day to make life better for all Americans and build this nation back better than before.
Joe Biden
When I was making my decision, I knew I needed someone who’s ready to help lead the nation on day one. @KamalaHarris is that person.
Joe Biden
When I called @KamalaHarris yesterday to ask her to be my running mate, I wanted to make sure Jill and Doug got to say hello. You’re honorary Bidens now!
Joe Biden
Let's get to work, @KamalaHarris.
Joe Biden
[email protected] is the daughter of proud immigrants—a mother from India and a father from Jamaica—who raised her to take action. That’s exactly what this moment calls for: action. And we hope you’ll take action with us: joe.link/3fLCrFX

Let’s go win this, @KamalaHarris.
Joe Biden
Folks, we need to listen to our frontline heroes. Wear a mask. It’s not just about you. It’s about keeping your family, neighbors, and fellow citizens safe.
Joe Biden
Donald Trump has refused to take serious action to combat the COVID-19 crisis. And as a result, he got what he’s always wanted — the U.S. isolated from the rest of the world.
Joe Biden
The fact is, Donald Trump left our nation unprepared and unprotected for the worst public health crisis of our lifetime — and we're paying the price every single day.

I have the great honor to announce that I’ve picked @KamalaHarris — a fearless fighter for the little guy, and one of the country’s finest public servants — as my running mate. Back when Kamala was Attorney General, she worked closely with Beau. I watched as they took on the big banks, lifted up working people, and protected women and kids from abuse. I was proud then, and I'm proud now to have her as my partner in this campaign.
