If there is going to be a theme to the nonsense forthcoming in the 2020 elections, it may very well be “grandiosity”.
We’ve already seen the clouds of this coming storm of semantics on the campaign trail. President Trump is being vilified by the left in an effort to, once again, make this election the “most important election in our lifetime”.
And, hey, it very well might be, but aren’t they all?
Joe Biden, who officially entered the race yesterday after months of speculation, is ready to take this idea of grandiose finality to the next level, however, with his latest bold claim.

“I get calls from people all over the world. World leaders are calling me, and they’re almost begging me to do this, to save the country, save the world,” Biden reportedly said.
Here we see where Joe’s political strategists are trying to pull the wool over our eyes.
They understand clearly that any democratic victory will hinge on the voting of the youth demographic; the same group that are more than willing to choose someone other than a rich, old, white guy to be President…especially one with years of legislative and personal skeletons piling up in the closet.
So Joe has emerged like the final boss in a video game, or the big bad guy at the end of every western. The rest of the democratic field have already battled The Donald on Twitter, with more than a few black eyes in the aftermath.
Biden has chosen to frame his election in these video game/comic book sorts of terms to appeal to a millennial faction who are increasingly depressed, stressed, and anxiety ridden. His team is essentially saying that the democratic threw everything they had at Donald Trump to no avail, here comes the hero.
We’ll just have to wait and see if the Hollywood blockbuster-esque narrative they are trying to create will hold water, or if Joe Biden is just another straight to DVD candidate.
And let’s not ignore the timing of the “save the world” verbiage in regard to the release of Avengers: Endgame. In no way is this accidental.
