Joe Biden Continues to Show Thin Skin
Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden continues to show just how thin-skinned he is as the pressure around him, his family, and his failing campaign intensifies. In a 24-hour period the former Vice President lashed out at critical coverage by the New York Times as well as Twitter and Facebook for running Trump campaign ads.
In a letter sent by his campaign to the Times, he the author of an opinion piece, Peter Schweizer, that discussed possible corruption between the Ukraine and the Biden’s. It calls Schweizer a “discredited right-wing polemicist” and asks tells the Times, “this leaves us with a critical question: are you truly blind to what you got wrong in 2016, or are you deliberately continuing policies that distort reality for the sake of controversy and the clicks that accompany it?”

This is an amazingly desperate and tone deaf attack on the paper which most consider to be left leaning in the majority of its political coverage.
Ironically, the New York Times recently ran articles about Joe Biden’s other sensitive issue, Trump campaign ads. Biden has attacked the social media companies for allowing any adds that suggest him and his son Hunter participated in any shady dealings in the Ukraine. The “fake news” CNN has already caved to Biden and disallowed the ads from appearing on their air.
Facebook refused to take down an ad from the Trump campaign that promoted unsubstantiated accusations about Joe Biden. Facebook said the ad, which has been viewed 5 million times on the site, did not violate its policies.https://t.co/SG5pnYBsqC— The New York Times (@nytimes) October 9, 2019
CNN has declined to run a new ad from President Trump's re-election campaign, saying that the 30-second spot about Joe Biden contains "assertions that have been proven demonstrably false" and unfairly attacks the network's employeeshttps://t.co/kxv3dfuk4p— The New York Times (@nytimes) October 3, 2019
