Now that we are clearly in the final stretch of this 2020 election, it’s time for the candidates to bring out their big guns.
There are less than 30 days left until a majority of Americans cast their ballots. Sure, the early voting numbers and the absentee ballots are hitting new records in 2020, but there is little doubt that a bulk of the electorate will be punching their tickets live, on the scene, on November 3rd.
The candidates certainly recognize that the mad dash to the finish line has begun, and are ramping up their output both in volume and in vociferousness.
In the case of Joe Biden, the 2020 Democratic nominee, this means calling in some favors to some old friends.
Former first lady Michelle Obama excoriated President Trump during a video message aimed at delivering her closing argument for why voters should elect Joe Biden.
“We can no longer pretend that we don’t know exactly who and what this president stands for. Search your hearts, and your conscience, and then vote for Joe Biden like your lives depend on it,” Obama said in the video released by Biden’s campaign.
She rebuked Trump for what she sees as “willful mismanagement of the COVID crisis.”
“Seven months later, he still won’t wear a mask consistently and encourage others to do the same, even when those simple actions could save countless lives,” she said. “Instead, he continues to gaslight the American people by acting like this pandemic is not a real threat.”
The former First Lady was long speculated to be interested in the vice presidential slot on the Biden ticket, until making a number of statements regarding her unwillingness to return to the White House life any time soon.
