Republicans give Trump a pass on accountability. Biden needs that from Democrats.

“The dueling campaign emails that landed in my inbox back to back Monday afternoon captured the whipsaw essence of this ridiculous race. ‘Joe Biden is dropping out of the race!’ the email from former President Donald Trump’s campaign declared. … President Joe Biden’s campaign offered this counter-declaration from him in an email nine minutes later: ‘Let me be clear: I’m running. I’m the Democratic Party’s nominee. No one is pushing me out. I’m not leaving.’ Both asked for donations that they said they need to beat the other guy. But Biden is also asking for something else from his supporters – the kind of pass Republicans give Trump and his troubled bid for a second term. … if Democrats treat Biden the way Republicans treat Trump, looking past the president’s very evident physical and mental issues, then drawing distinctions between the two candidates goes all fuzzy.” (07/10/24)
