Biden the Divider is at it again. Last night in a CNN Town hall, Joe Biden said, "I view this campaign as a campaign between Scranton and Park Avenue...All Trump can see from Park Avenue is Wall Street. All he thinks about is the stock market."
The Democratic presidential candidate amplified it in a tweet: "This election is Scranton vs. Park Avenue."
Leave it to Soledad O'Brien to respond brilliantly with a pushback against Biden's zero-sum approach of pitting one part of America against another: "Or... both. NYC's Park Avenue is amazing. No need to knock it. Would be nice to have a President who sees every American as worth fighting for. Thank you."
We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
We might add, too, that in one key Park Avenue zip code, 10021, a recent New York Times analysis found 1,127 Biden campaign contributors versus a mere 143 to Trump.
Or we might add, too, that the "blue state bailout" additional round of coronavirus stimulus being pushed by Biden and the Democrats, and Biden-Democrat push to lift the Trump cap on the deductability of state and local taxes, would both be gifts to Park Avenue at the expense of places such as Scranton and rural America.
Biden may just be not smart enough to see that running against Park Avenue undercuts his message that he is a unifying force in contrast to the supposedly divisive President Trump. Or he may be betting that the voters aren't smart enough to figure that out. Not a good bet for him.
