While millions of Americans have lost their jobs, are struggling to pay their bills, and/or provide for their families during the coronavirus pandemic, one top Democrat is only concerned about himself.
Millions of Americans have filed for unemployment, businesses are closing down, and the economy has come to a grinding halt — but Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is asking people to donate money to his campaign.
Biden took to Twitter on Tuesday and disgustingly claimed he wanted to reach his “end of quarter” donation goal, which is another example of how tone-deaf he is.
“Tonight marks our biggest public end-of-quarter deadline of the campaign so far. I know times are tough, but what’s at stake in this election has never been clearer. If you could chip in to help us reach our goal, I would really appreciate it,” he wrote.

Several Twitter users absolutely tore into Biden for his tweet.

They just got $25 million & aren’t paying their employees.
Sounds right up your alley!

This has already been a catastrophic month for Biden. Earlier this week, reports surfaced that some Democrats are apparently very worried about what could happen if Biden gets the nomination given the questions surrounding his possible mental decline. Liberals could be looking for an outside liberal like New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo to jump in at the last second to take on President Donald Trump in the general election.
Democrats are publicly talking about “contingency options” for their July convention in Milwaukee in case the coronavirus persists in being a public-health threat. But privately, some are also talking about needing a Plan B if Joe Biden, their nominee apparent, continues to flounder.
Some Democrats are openly talking up New York governor Andrew Cuomo, whose profile has soared during the crisis, as a Biden stand-in. Yesterday, a Draft Cuomo 2020 account on Twitter announced that “Times have changed & we need Gov. Cuomo to be the nominee. Our next POTUS must be one w/an ability to lead through this crisis.”
