The Trump campaign scrambles to revive the president's imperiled reelection bid, with no clear strategy in sight, by @AshleyRParker @costareports @jdawsey1https://t.co/WEIOtC3Abu— Dan Balz (@danbalz) June 28, 2020
There's a possibility that Trump's problem here is not his campaign. https://t.co/IOvDi1MVkM— Karen Tumulty (@ktumulty) June 28, 2020

Trump has been asking advisers if he should stick with his current nickname for Biden — “Sleepy Joe” — or try to coin another moniker, such as “Swampy Joe” or “Creepy Joe.” The president is not convinced that “Sleepy Joe” is particularly damaging... https://t.co/0RSN5vIIPJ— Robert Costa (@costareports) June 28, 2020
Advisers, meanwhile, are frustrated with the president’s tendency to portray himself as the victim, and have urged him to stop the public displays of self-pity.Does anybody really think Biden has to say more than that from now to November?
“If the election was today, we are in big trouble,” according to one person close to Trump, who like others requested anonymity to share a candid assessment. “Thankfully it is not.”
Speaking Thursday in Pennsylvania, Biden similarly took aim at Trump’s seeming inability to rise to the moment, saying the president is handling the coronavirus “like a child who can’t believe this has happened to him.”
“All his whining and self-pity,” Biden said. “This pandemic didn’t happen to him. It happened to all of us. And his job isn’t to whine about it. His job is to do something about it, to lead.”
Imagine the combination of grifters & establishment GOP consultants sitting around kicking this around with @realDonaldTrump after having spent $900 million to get to, let me check, 39%. https://t.co/e7beK53D5g— John Weaver (@jwgop) June 28, 2020
Help is on the way!

Ok I’m done now sorry
And imagine how those grifters and establishment GOP consultants are gonna feel about this, with Trump's support among "seniors" already slipping (although I gotta say, the "Greatest Generation" is pretty much under the sod by now. My father entered the Navy as early as he could, the war was over by the time his training was, and he died 4 years ago. At 90.):
The Greatest Generation sacrificed everything for our country. But @realDonaldTrump wants to sacrifice them for the economy when they're in their greatest time of need. pic.twitter.com/tWrQ7CT0Op— The Lincoln Project (@ProjectLincoln) June 28, 2020
(Still, this does make its point.)
