Joe Biden delivered his own 1-2 punch to Donald Trump today. The first punch hit back at Trump's criminal and treasonous attempt to intimidate a foreign government to gather dirt on him and his son in order to defeat him at the polls. The second punch threw the weight of his support behind the Democrats calling for Trump's impeachment. In a short statement to the press today, after which he took no questions, the former V.P. made clear why the attacks on him were so much less important than the attacks on the country and the Constitution, saying, "[I]f we allow a president to get away with shredding the United States Constitution, that will last forever."
He went further, though, identifying exactly with whom the responsibility for impending impeachment lies.
That may be true, and the words are poetic, indeed. I can think of a few others who contributed to the making of this tragedy, though.
