    Always classy when women use foul language, especially when they criticize Trump for being vulgar. But seeing as I am the only one commenting I guess no one really listens anyway.

    I know what exactly what Biden should do, and he wont do. He should go on CNN and say this is a time for working together along bipartisan lines. That this is an extraordinary situation, and that we need to work with the President and his administration through this time of crisis. That we need to work together as a nation because its in pain. And the time for partisan bickering is over. When normalcy has been achieved we can return to the election.

    He should offer his services to the President to help manage things with Congress.

    At the first sign of Pelosi and Schumer basically scuttling the bill, he should taken his Plane to Washington, chewed them out for there short sightedness, and held a press conference where they announced they are working together with Republicans for the best interests of the country.

    His entire brand is about being the deal maker and the compromiser. This is the best chance for him to be that guy.

    Can you imagine the poll numbers he would get as being the bigger man at this time.

    Of course he wont do it, because Democrats dont think like that anymore.
