Well, the long wait is finally over for the democratic party as former Vice President Joe Biden has limped into the 2020 presidential race.
Everyone knew that it was coming, possibly for even longer than Biden himself knew, and the democratic field up until now has merely been practicing for when their big dog wanders into the yard. Today marks a new turn in the already crowded race, and it will undoubtedly be interesting to see how the candidates react to the longtime legislator’s entrance.
President Trump is reacting to Biden’s formal announcement as well, this time bestowing the former VP with a nickname that, surprisingly, had nothing to do with the gluttony of women who have accused him of inappropriate behavior.
Biden’s announcement is drawing criticism as well.
The video, which was prerecorded and released online, has been criticized for its focus on the 2017 clash in Charlottesville, Virginia, and its depiction of statements made by the President in its wake.
Biden joins at least 19 other democrats in the race for the White House in 2020.
