Tiffany Trump, the president’s youngest daughter, made a rare foray into politics by speaking at the Republican National Convention last week.
She took another step into the fray on Monday when she tweeted at her father’s Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden.
“Please stop lying Joe,” she wrote.
“You may think we are too ignorant to see through the lies — but God knows the truth.”
While Tiffany Trump made it unclear what the context was in this situation, the remark came the same day that Biden delivered a speech in Pittsburgh accusing President Donald Trump of “poisoning our very democracy” and blaming recent riots on him.
“The incumbent president is incapable of telling us the truth, incapable of facing the facts and incapable of healing,” Biden said, according to a transcript of his remarks. “He doesn’t want to shed light, he wants to generate heat and he’s stroking violence in our cities.”
Biden insisted he’d taken a strong stance against rioting and blamed the president for his “failure to call on his own supporters to stop acting as an armed militia in this country.”
“Donald Trump has been a toxic presence in our nation for four years. Poisoning how we talk to one another, poisoning how we treat one another, poisoning the values this nation has always held dear, poisoning our very democracy,” Biden said. “Now, in just a little over 60 days, we have a decision to make. Will we rid ourselves of this toxin or will we make it a permanent part of our nation’s character?”
What was interesting about the speech — and a statement he’d released condemning the violence in Portland the day before — was that they weren’t really about just condemning rioting. They were about proving to people he could actually condemn rioting.
The GOP clearly landed a punch by highlighting the fact that the Democrats — including Biden — had spent much more time denouncing police violence and encouraging protesters than criticizing violent demonstrators — when they did it at all.
Now, Biden’s position is that Donald Trump is responsible for these riots because he stokes the fire. Biden didn’t mention the local officials who have been unwilling to impose law and order.
While this was the most likely reason behind Tiffany Trump’s tweet, she certainly didn’t have a paucity of lies to choose from. And yet, here was the predictable — and disgusting — response from the left:
