As we approach the presidential election of 2020, one thing seems obvious at this early stage: It will be Donald Trump against the world.
The democrats have chosen the “spray and pray” method of finding a candidate, it seems, fielding new fewer than 19 candidates presently. Waiting in the wings, however, is former Vice President Joe Biden, who “isn’t running” for President while almost certainly running for President.
As such, the attacks on Biden have begun, as the smaller fish in the political pond seek to damage his candidacy before it even becomes official.
The first stones of doubt cast into the Biden Bay have sent ripples throughout not only the political world, but the #MeToo movement as well, thanks to accusations of inappropriate sexual behavior by Biden. One such accusation stems from Biden’s propensity for smelling women’s hair – something that has been well documented within the media.
A spokesman for Biden attempted to squash the issue early this week, but with little effect thanks to his poor choice of argument.

The sheer gall of Russo to contend that the issue here are “forgeries” of these moments is absurd, as is the idea that a woman coming forward to warn us about Biden could be considered a “smear”.
This is America, last time that I checked, and understanding the behavior of someone who would like to be considered for the highest office in our nation seems like a logical and sensible undertaking to endure.
If Bill Russo would like to steer Joe Biden through the primary process, he may want to get both hands on the wheel…sooner rather than later.
