Voters were truly able to see the contrasting behaviors of the likely Democratic Presidential and Republican nominees this Memorial Day Weekend.

Joe and Jill Biden released a heartwarming tribute to veterans and first responders in a video this Memorial Day Morning.

 

In the video, the former Vice President solemnly said:

“The pandemic is showing us that service and bravery and willingness to stand on the front lines to help and protect our fellow human beings is not just a quality we find in our service members.”

“It’s at the core of every American Spirit.”

“This Memorial Day offers each of us the chance to reflect on the enormity of their sacrifice.”

“So to all the members of our military, and our military families, especially those who have lost a service member, Thank you, we owe you. We can never lessen the magnitude of your loss. But this I can promise you. We will never forget. May God bless you all and God protect our troops.”

The Bidens, wearing masks, then went to a Memorial Park for Veterans in Delaware to lay a wreath and pay their respects for those who have fallen to protect the freedoms the people in this country hold dear.

What did Mr. Trump do to honor our fallen veterans?

He started the day tweeting like an unhinged maniac, continuing from his bombastic postings from the weekend where he disparaged his predecessor, his 2016 opponent (the Popular Vote Winner,) a potential Vice Presidential pick (Stacey Abrams) and Joe Scarborough (accusing the former Congressman and MSNBC early morning host of murder.)

Today he went after the Governor of North Carolina Roy Cooper for not yet guaranteeing the safety of Republican convention delegates when they convene in August in Charlotte.

He threatened to withdraw the convention from Charlotte and move it elsewhere.

Fine.

Later, he, along with the First Lady and the Vice President quietly (Thank God) mercifully laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

Again the voters, if they need any more reminding, the contrast can not be any starker.
