There are certainly more than four defining moments to 2020. The list could go on an on. Books will certainly be written. But here are four that you probably remember well.

From Daily Wire:

Fiery but mostly peaceful protests.

‘You ain’t black.’ Joe Biden says the quiet part out loud.

We have known for decades that the Democrats take the so-called “black vote” for granted. Until Joe Biden, however, such assumptions were limited to quiet whispers.

They would visit inner cities. They would blame Democrat failures on Republicans, white people, or the legacy of slavery.

The political reaction to COVID-19 has remained shockingly partisan throughout the year.

The Democrats were the “party of science,” and the Republicans were the “deniers of science.”
