    Why Trump always use this statement "Sleepy Biden"
    Is it among his fooling tactics to let people think that Joe Biden is really a sleepy person or to make psychological effect on Joe Biden himself?
    Is it because Trump more active towards women and have a lot of experience with them whereas Joe Biden was experience in politics.
    Is it because Trump speaks madly while Trump speaks in gentle way?
    What do you think?

    Probably an age joke with Trump thinking that his opponent is tired and worn out.

    Actually I'm not sure he even thinks that, but that's how political rhetoric goes.

    Name calling is a playground debating tactic for children. Our president has never grown past that stage.

    One of the things business people do is branding. It is usually the branding that sticks in people's mind.

    Trump is trying to brand Biden. It is a successful business tactic but relatively new to politics. Doesn't have to based on anything really but repetition. Gets embedded into people's subconscious mind.

    And that branding fails sometimes. The Conservative Party in Canada once tried that with Jean Chretien, running for the Liberals. Chretien has a droop at one side of his face and mouth caused by a childhood palsy, and the Conservatives tried to use it against him. Chretien responded brilliantly, embarassed the hell out of the Conservatives, and won the election.

    Tump, like the good Christian he claims to be, has a demeaning nick-name for practically everybody who doesn't kiss his butt, and worship at his feat. Recently, he has asked "what kind of person says something like that," about the accusation of calling military dead "losers." To which I respond, "well maybe the kind of person who would say (about Megyn Kelly) "she has blood coming out her whatever." And for the record, Trump said that.

    Doesn't matter what a person is when they are a narcissist - they only focus on the faults of others.

    As political advisors have pointed out, calling Biden names makes it easier for him to win the debates. He just has to show up and be alert. Someone who does not live by the insult and die by the insult would talk about how great and formidable a debater Biden is to build expectations to an unreasonable level. Trump is not capable of doing that.

    It is definitely a skill to deal successfully with.

    The art of politics is learning to walk with your back to the wall, your elbows high, and a smile on your face. It's a survival game played under the glare of lights - Jean Chrétien

    There's no equal yet that can be compared with Chretien's poopularity.

    We'll see how Biden does. Gore tried against Bush and failed. I suspect he lost the election right there.

    Sept 29th is the first debate. Either may win or lose the election during these debates.

    Just looking at footing from Trump's rally at Pittsburgh airport 2 days ago....

    There is an actual insanity going on in the US. So many people, nobody wearing masks, all crammed in closely together. It is, and there's no other way to say this, the causative moment before a whole lot of future deaths.

    WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE REPUBLICAN BRAIN? Is it a thinking organ, or just a believing one? (No need to answer -- the evidence is in. :()

    What the Orange Clown typically does is give nicknames that try and project his own shortcomings onto his opponents. He called Biden that before people could start calling him Sleepy Don.

    It's a propaganda technique.
    "Sleepy" is to paint Biden as an old man with dementia.
    No, the usage of the word is a propaganda technique designed to make people think about his age when they hear his name.
    No, it's a propaganda technique designed to influence susceptible minds.

    Trump has demeaning names for all of his opponents.
    I think the idea is - since any mention of them is like advertising, he wants to ensure that he only ever mentions them along with an insult. He will never refer to them simply, and with respect, because that comes too close to endorsing them in his twisted, vindictive and very small mind.

    And by using such tactics, especially at his rallies, his base goes nuts with laughing and cheering and all sorts of carrying on. I hate to say this, but it's like watching little children cheering for their super-hero. One would have thought they'd outgrown this by now, but such is obviously not the case.

    IOW, they're being entertained, and one can see it in their faces.

    Don't sell yourself short. There's plenty of demeaning and 'creative' name calling right here for all to see just at RF alone.

    Bidens base is in the zone! Triple AAA and on the leader boards!
