As Twitchy reported a few days ago, Joe Biden tweeted that his fans ought to not treat their opponents as the opponent. That tweet, obviously sent by a staffer, did not fly with Biden’s fans, who argued that Trump fans are fascists and therefore are the enemy. If President Biden is going to unify the country, he’s going to need to stop calling covers at 9 a.m. and make it a full-time job.
The New York Times’ Wajahat Ali has an intriguing take: He wants Biden to heal the nation while others go on the attack on his behalf.
Biden/Harris needs to develop a war room simply for media and messaging. You have treat the Republican Celebration and extreme right media as the significantly extremist group that they are.
Biden has to recover the nation, court the voters, but the right wing movement is hostile.

One way to do this is to establish Biden fireside chats. I think he’ll be fantastic at it. Just talk with the country. Openness. Excellent method to recover. However, you likewise require blitzkrieg on Facebook & Radio. Right-wing controls those areas. Also, attack Republicans leading up to 2022 …

McConnell and Republicans will block Biden on popular policies the nation needs to literally endure. You should inform the country THEY are blocking progress. Let Biden heal, let others Attack, attack, attack & message properly leading up to2022 That’s when we win it all back.

” Popular policies the country needs to actually make it through.”
So, simply put, Biden is simply a figurehead offering fireside chats while other more extremist Democrats attack, attack, and attack. Who thought that?
Biden has to recover the nation by treating half the country as extremists. Seems like a terrific concept and not at all like you’re a GD idiot. https://t.co/E4mW7hZqt8

Remember when Chris Hayes was pontificating about what to do with Trump advocates after a Biden success? ” Some kind of reality and reconciliation commission.”
