Both the coronavirus pandemic as well as wild protests raging throughout the country, while a clock is ticking down in this presidential race, make things very interesting. I've got David Lamb with me specialist in this area, has been following elections for a long time. Look, first of all, I don't know. I don't know how Trump pulls out of this.
It's tough.
I mean, the numbers, the numbers are startling. You know, I guess, I think you told me earlier that there was one such, such, one situation where it was what was HW Bush running against, Dukakis.
Dukakis, yeah.
And the numbers looked just like this.
Very close.
But then Dukakis put that ridiculous helmet on, right? Remember him putting the tank helmet on his head.
And of course, HW Bush won. I'm not seeing that here. I got to ask you something, you know, I've always had a theory that they would play the fear card.
And they are playing the fear card in a big way. You know, you've got the ad where Biden wants to do away with police departments where, you know, there's mass pandemonium in the streets. And that obviously worked for Nixon.
Because Nixon was running against the guy where that was going on.
He was the outsider.
He was the outsider.
I might be wrong about this. Tell me, tell me why I might be.
Well, you'll, you'll notice, so Trump has tried several things to try to pin things on Biden, or try to find where there's a foothold. He has now settled on, he is the law and order candidate. Okay. So that is who he is sending in these, these federal troops to Portland. That kind of goes along with that. It, it's a hope, but the challenge there, Pap, is like you said, so he is the law and order candidate against the America that he has been in charge of for three and a half years. Right?
It doesn't make any sense.
It's, how do you pivot that?
Right. Nixon ran on law and order, but he was the outsider coming in. Here it's kind of tough for saying, hey, look, what's happening in the streets. And oh, by the way, I am the president of the United States.
And, you know, and the Trump campaign, they actually do, do tweet and say this is what Biden's America will look like. But the reality is this is what Trump's America does look like. And with the groups that he's really struggling with those suburban moms, they, they just do not like seeing all of the violence and all of the scary, that footage is everywhere.
Well, and you gotta wonder, are they blaming, who they're going to blame? And he's the guy in charge, right. You know, in 19, in 2016, you know, Trump is like the master or his people are the masters of tagging people. Right?
They, you know, what was it? Ted Cruz was lying Ted.
Lying Ted.
Hillary was lock her up chants, you know, he's pretty good at that. It's dem, he's a demagogue. Right? So I don't know that he's been able, he tried to give sleepy Joe, the sleepy Joe tag, you know, he won't come out of his basement and you know, that's true. He's running from his basement and it seems to be working. He's having a hard time tagging Joe Biden, isn't he?
He is. And that's a Testament to Biden partially because he, he is, he has proven difficult for Trump to pin with the radical left or to make Biden into a scary individual. And even, I don't know if you saw this, this last week, the president trying to bring into question the vice president, the former vice president's mental acuity and mental fitness.
Yeah. Talk about that, it's crazy.
And whenever, and this even blew up in Trump's face, because he was pointing out how, questioning whether Biden's got what it takes to be the leader of the free world.
He looked like a crazy man when he was questioning.
