Received this e-mail from the terrific Singer-Songwriter, Carole King, in support of former Vice President Joe Biden’s Presidential campaign:
if you’re in a position to contribute anything at all, will you pitch in $5 to help Joe Biden become president next year? >>
As a leader, Donald Trump is at best useless and at worst dangerous. And it’s going to get even worse if he’s in office for another 4 years.
There are so many reasons why we must defeat Trump in November. Here are three.
1. In the midst of a pandemic, Trump has completely abdicated his responsibility and ignored public health officials. Americans are suffering because of it.
2. When state governors asked the President of the United States to help provide vital medical equipment, Trump said, “We’re not a shipping clerk.”
3. Donald Trump has told more than 16,000 lies since taking office. We can’t trust him.
In contrast, Joe Biden has the experience and the character to lead our nation during the most trying of times. You can trust Joe. You know him, and he knows you.
I know Joe too. I’ve campaigned with him. I’ve met with him about environmental issues. And I watched him partner with President Obama for eight years in leading America through crisis after crisis.
This pandemic has shown us the stark reality that Donald Trump is incapable of leading.
Unfortunately, Trump and his cohorts have already raised hundreds of millions of dollars to defeat the Democratic nominee. With that kind of money, he can sway the election.
We cannot let Trump win!
Every dollar goes toward making sure Americans vote for the Democratic nominee in numbers too big to ignore, suppress, or dispute.
We need Joe Biden in the White House today. But the Constitution says that can’t happen before January 20, 2021.
Okay. Let’s make it happen.
These times are incredibly stressful, and my heart goes out to you and your family. I wouldn’t ask if we didn’t desperately need someone in the Oval Office who knows how to lead.
I believe that person is Joe Biden — and Dr. Jill Biden will be a fantastic First Lady.
Will you donate $5 to Joe’s campaign today? »
We’re all in this together, and we will get through this together.
