The interesting part is that most older voters dont care enough to even follow the details anymore
Ill talk to a boomer about it and they say “ehh trump is corrupt too”
It's a stupid and unnuanced approach, but some introspection is necessary here. "Us" Trump supporters made ample use of tu quoque
arguments to defend Trump's misconduct over the past 4 years. It really shouldnt surprise us, nor are we in a position to be outraged, when the other side uses the same tactic.
To form a reasonable, fact-based opinion, one needs to look very carefully at the actual extent of the misconduct and hypocrisy in question. When we do that, this Biden-burisma story ranks relatively high, certainly higher than a lot of the minor Trump "scandals" which were portrayed by the liberal media like the end of the world. But such a nuanced or complex assessment of the iusses cannot be expected from the masses.This post was edited by Black XistenZ on Oct 25 2020 04:30am
