The Trump campaign felt a sense of deja vu when they listened to Joe Biden’s coronavirus speech. There’s a good reason for that. The article starts by saying “Joe Biden’s coronavirus remarks today sounded awfully familiar. Listening to him, we felt a sense of déjà vu. Here’s why: Biden blatantly ripped off President Trump, and bizarrely called on him to do things he has in fact already done. Joe Biden said ‘no efforts should be spared’ to get private labs and universities working to rapidly expand testing for coronavirus. President Trump already acted on this weeks ago, ordering the FDA to allow hundreds of private labs and academic hospitals to rapidly begin testing for coronavirus.”

That isn’t the last ‘similarity’ from Biden’s speech. Here’s another:

Joe Biden said that small businesses will need relief from coronavirus’ economic impact. President Trump already moved decisively to provide $50 billion in liquidity to small business owners, and is asking Congress for even more.

Here’s another copycat portion of Biden’s speech:

Joe Biden said it is critical for insurance companies to waive copays for coronavirus testing. President Trump already got it done, securing a commitment from the nation’s insurance providers to waive all copays on coronavirus testing and expand coverage of coronavirus treatment in all their benefit plans.

Joe Biden wants to prove that he’s a leader in the worst way. This is proof, unfortunately, that he’s a follower. He’s making authoritative-sounding suggestions that others have already made. That’s following the leader. That isn’t leadership.

Joe Biden hasn’t been a leader. As a senator, Biden was one senator out of 100. If he got something wrong, it frequently wasn’t even noticed, much less life-altering. President Trump has been an executive his entire adult life. Every decision he’s made impacts people’s lives. He’s felt that pressure his entire adult life.

During his first presidential campaign, Biden quit because he plagiarized parts of Neil Kinnock’s speech. Now he’s stealing major parts of President Trump’s speech on the coronavirus. If he couldn’t steal other people’s lines and ideas, he’d be a total idiot. Watching this portion of Joe Biden’s speech makes me feel sad for him:

I feel sad because he’s using President Trump’s ideas one minute, then criticizing President Trump in the next sentence. Does he think we won’t notice that he’s plagiarizing again?
