Former Vice President Joe Biden

Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden slammed President Donald Trump Tuesday afternoon in a strong speech, and with it seems to have buried his Republican opponent's "Sleepy Joe" nickname for him.

Biden slammed Trump in a series of hits about the coronavirus pandemic, reminding voters that as far back as February he has been warning about COVID-19, and detailing the actions that must be taken at the federal level to protect Americans.


In addition to his display of competence on handling pandemics, contrasting himself with Trump, Biden attacked the President directly.

"Trump called himself a wartime president. Now, it seems like our wartime president has surrendered."

"President Trump failed us."

And he urged everyone to "wear a mask. Period."

"We can't continue half recovering, half getting worse," Biden said. "We can't continue half with a plan and half just hoping for the best. We can't defeat this virus with a piecemeal approach."


We don't need a cheerleader, Mr. President, we need a President, Mr. President," Biden said blasting Trump for not taking responsibility and blaming others.

"Mr. President this is not about yu, it's about the health and welfare of the American people," Biden added, blasting Trump for "midnight tweets," and saying now is not the time to "wash your hands and walk away from responsibility."

Although QAnon isn't a religious movement per se, the far-right conspiracy theorists have enjoyed some of their strongest support from white evangelicals — who share their adoration of former President Donald Trump. And polling research from The Economist and YouGov shows that among those who are religious, White evangelicals are the most QAnon-friendly.
