Trump Sycophant Dick Morris Cranks Out Anti-Biden Attacks
Topic: Newsmax

As part of his role as Newsmax's resident Donald Trump sycophant, Dick Morris cranks out lots of anti-Biden talking points as well. Here's what he's done over the past few months with emphasis on two maintalking points, the candidacy of Robert Kennedy Jr. and Republican claims of scandal:

Morris also dutifully repeated Repubican talking points trying to link the Bidens to alleged bribery -- even if he can't actually prove it happened. He wrote in a June 6 column: "We don’t have proof that Joe Biden took a $5 million bribe, but the evidence suggests a full criminal investigation of the matter is warranted." He went on full Biden attack in a June 21 column:

However, as reality set in, his job approval fell rapidly.

But his personal favorability or popularity remained higher than his job approval.

People liked him even if they disapproved of his performance in office.

But now, the revelations of accusations of receiving money improperly, the Hunter Biden scandals, his increasing physical disability and his obvious mental inability to cope with today’s problems are taking their toll on his personal popularity.

In the June poll by McLaughlin and Associates, Biden had sunk to all time lows both in job approval and in personal favorability.

Any politician can recover from bad job ratings — they can always do a better job.

But once the job disapproval has crept into his personal favorability it's hard to recover.

It’s easier to convince people that your job performance has improved than it is to tell them that you have become a better man or woman.

So Biden’s political troubles are mounting to a point where he cannot redeem himself. He is becoming unelectable.

But, in an act that can only be compared to ritual suicide, the Democratic Party remains wed to him.

Morris didn't mention that McLaughlin is a right-wing pollster who's best known for working for Trump's 2020 campaign.And one can just as easily argue that sycophants like Morris are commitingritual suicide by tying themselves to an increasingly erratic and amoral man whose behavior continues to get him indicted. Indeed, Morris ended his columnn with more sycophancy:

Let's put the last few weeks in perspective.

Trump was arrested and then indicted in two separate scandals and his ratings improved. Biden is still immune from censure by his biased Justice Department, but his numbers have dropped.

There is a God.

Morris' smear about Biden's "obvious mental inability" earned him a top-of-column disclaimer from Newsmax stating that "The following column has been authored by a non-clinician."
