Joe Biden said on Friday that he has received intelligence briefings as he warned that Russia, China and other adversaries were attempting to undermine the upcoming November election.
Fox News may have been on to something when they claimed in June that the Democratic Party has plans to attack and dethrone God. At least that’s what President Trump thinks. Ahead of a campaign stop at the Whirlpool Manufacturing Plant in Clyde, Ohio, the president addressed supporters with a warning: If Joe Biden wins, he is going to hurt God. You heard it here first!In a campaign rally-style speech on the Cleveland airport tarmac, Trump told his supporters that Biden is “following the radical left agenda,” despite Biden’s center right politics. The president added that Biden will “take away your guns, destroy your Second Amendment. No religion, no anything. Hurt the Bible, hurt God.” > A completely deranged Trump claims Joe Biden will “hurt God” if elected president pic.twitter.com/cJ8fbghmAm> > — Timothy Burke (@bubbaprog) August 6, 2020Trump might feel strongly about protecting both God and the Bible from a Biden presidency, but, ironically, when previously asked to name some of his favorite Bible verses, he couldn’t, claiming it was “very personal” and he doesn’t “want to get into specifics.” For Trump, the Bible is both a reason to tear gas protestors and something that must be protected from Biden at all costs. But the Biden campaign, to our knowledge, has not tried to attack or “hurt God” in any way. Andrew Bates, a spokesperson for Biden said in a statement that the presumptive Democratic nominee’s faith “is at the core of who he is.” The statement added, “Donald Trump is the only president in our history to have tear-gassed peaceful Americans and thrown a priest out of his church just so he could profane it—and a Bible—for his own cynical optics.” Trump has gone after Biden for months with a line of strange and downright false attacks. Biden is “sleepy,” “corrupt,” and “weak,” according to the president, who wants his supporters to believe that despite it all, Biden also has the power to destroy God. Trump has repeatedly mocked Biden’s mental fitness, running Facebook ads with tiles like, “Joe Biden is clearly diminished,” and “Do you think Joe Biden has the mental fortitude to be president?” More recently, Trump has gone after the former vice president with claims that he embraces “the policies of the radical left,” like amnesty for undocumented immigrants and police abolition. These claims are simply not true. Biden has taken the same stance as the president when it comes to militant protestors, previously stating they should be prosecuted. It’s entirely unclear what God has done to deserve Joe Biden’s alleged wrath, but it seems Trump feels that his opponent possesses much more power than we even knew!Like what you see?

Anything can happen during a combination pandemic and election year — even social media sites finally refusing to give a platform to Donald Trump’s lies. After years of dangerous posts, Facebook and Twitter have removed one of Donald Trump’s videos for alleging that children are “almost immune” to the deadly coronavirus. Though the platform has clear guidelines about posting false, harmful information, Kellyanne Conway has another theory about why social media sites are decidedly censoring Trump. In a Fox News segment, Conway came to the president’s defense to say that removing any of his posts is inherently anti-Trump. “Why do we have the Big Tech overlords telling us what is and is not legitimate on health matters?” she asked, adding, “Twitter, Facebook, many of the forums are already overly anti-Trump. I think what’s happened is that the president has over 200 million followers on all of his social media platforms, he has used it in a way no other politician has used it, and they don’t like that.”Conway, Trump’s senior advisor and Top Fearmonger, also stated that she believes this is an election issue, and that tech companies are attempting to interfere with the president’s reelection bid. “I think what many of these tech companies are doing now to the president, to conservatives, the shadow banning, the censoring, the selective engagement, is election interference,” she said.But the actual engagement from conservatives and Trump supporters on these apps tell a completely different story. Hashtags like Trump2020 are alive and well on social media platforms — including on Instagram, owned by Facebook, where it’s recently been discovered that a bug in the system has actually been favoring pro-Trump content over Biden content. Trump2020 currently has over 2.5 million posts on Instagram, and MAGA has over 5.6 million. On TikTok, Trump2020 has over 7.5 billion views, and on Twitter, as early as yesterday, the Second Amendment was trending furiously after Letitia James announced that she would be filing a lawsuit to put an end to the National Rifle Association (NRA). But this is not the first time that Conway has accused a platform of tampering with an election. In 2018, Conway accused CNN of election interference for reporting on sexual misconduct cases against Trump. While Conway claims doing anything that contradicts the president is a plot against democracy, it also stands to mention that Facebook has consistently been pointed to as one of the main reasons that Trump even won the presidency in 2016. If this is the so-called moral high ground that Conway and the Trump team want to stand on, they may just want to hop in a time machine to stand up against social media election interference that made it possible for him to win in the first place — unless, of course, interference only matters when it isn’t to their advantage.
