While millions of Americans have lost their jobs, are struggling to pay their bills, and/or provide for their families during the coronavirus pandemic, one top Democrat is only concerned about himself.
Millions of Americans have filed for unemployment, businesses are closing down, and the economy has come to a grinding halt — but Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is asking people to donate money to his campaign.
Biden took to Twitter on Tuesday and disgustingly claimed he wanted to reach his “end of quarter” donation goal, which is another example of how tone-deaf he is.
“Tonight marks our biggest public end-of-quarter deadline of the campaign so far. I know times are tough, but what’s at stake in this election has never been clearer. If you could chip in to help us reach our goal, I would really appreciate it,” he wrote.

Several Twitter users absolutely tore into Biden for his tweet.
Bruh, you’re asking for money right now?

Gross. People are losing their jobs left and right. Ask Burisma for some money

This has already been a catastrophic month for Biden.
Earlier this week, reports surfaced that some Democrats are apparently very worried about what could happen if Biden gets the nomination given the questions surrounding his possible mental decline.
Liberals could be looking for an outside liberal like New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo to jump in at the last second to take on President Donald Trump in the general election.
Democrats are publicly talking about “contingency options” for their July convention in Milwaukee in case the coronavirus persists in being a public-health threat. But privately, some are also talking about needing a Plan B if Joe Biden, their nominee apparent, continues to flounder.
Some Democrats are openly talking up New York governor Andrew Cuomo, whose profile has soared during the crisis, as a Biden stand-in. Yesterday, a Draft Cuomo 2020 account on Twitter announced that “Times have changed & we need Gov. Cuomo to be the nominee. Our next POTUS must be one w/an ability to lead through this crisis.”
Charles Pierce, the politics blogger for Esquire magazine, wrote a piece headlined “With Two Words, Andrew Cuomo Established Himself as the Leader This Country Needs Now.” He enthused that Cuomo’s news conference last Friday “essentially (shutting) down the economy of his state . . . was a master class in leveling with the public.”
As today shld be the start of baseball, let me offer an analogy: let's take out a tired starter who's been wobbly through 4 and is gonna get shelled in the later innings. Let's go to the bullpen and bring in a real ace. Biden should step aside and let @NYGovCuomo be the nominee!

What do you think the odds are that Biden will be sidelined by illness, and that the Democratic convention will name Andrew Cuomo as the party's presidential candidate?

Just consider that.
A few months before Biden is pretty much guaranteed to secure the Democratic nomination, major liberal outlets like the New York Times and Esquire are running pieces about insiders very worried about Biden and whether Dems could select someone else to run against Trump.
And in light of Cuomo holding press conferences with the public almost daily to discuss the coronavirus and its spread in New York, he is getting an insane amount of air time to speak to Americans across the country.
This, apparently, has led to some Democrats considering pulling a super-fast-one on the July convention and nominating Cuomo.
It’s highly unlikely this will happen. Most, if not all, reading this know that Biden will secure the nomination and that there’s no way the DNC would take it from him if he wins enough delegates.
Things have no been doing well for Biden lately, either.
His vice presidential “short list” has 3 names on it that most voters are probably not happy about.
