Al Franken’s stupidity and partisanship are fully displayed in this CNN op-ed. Early in the op-ed, Franken writes “When your opponent is digging himself a hole, you let him keep digging. By design or necessity, Joe Biden has laid low since we all sheltered in place, allowing President Donald Trump to turn the November election into a referendum on Donald Trump. And right now, Donald Trump appears to be losing badly to Donald Trump.”

This is what I’d expect from an idiot like Franken. Franken apparently hasn’t figured out that Biden’s dementia has robbed him of an ability to look plausible. Apparently, Franken isn’t bright enough to figure out that the rioting and looting are losing issues for Democrats in battleground states. It’s obvious that Franken is discounting the economic recovery that’s already underway thanks to the steps President Trump put in place.

While I don’t have the official data that proves the start of the COVID economic recovery, the signs are getting impossible to miss. Consumer confidence is rising. Millions of jobs are getting created. Home sales are going up. Oil prices have recovered, which wouldn’t happen if the economy is still contracting.

After reading this, I’m wondering if Franken has used his brain lately:

The first, of course, is that a Trump victory would be a disaster for everything Democrats hold dear. Here’s a short list — democracy, economic justice, social justice and justice. That leaves out a whole bunch — for instance, providing health care for all Americans and global warming. Stuff like that.

Secondly, between now and November, Trump and the Republicans will do everything they can to cheat. That means using every tool possible to suppress votes, including a full court press to prevent vote-by-mail, even if we are still deep in the throes of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Third, if Trump loses a close election, he may very well refuse to leave.

Franken’s right about something. A second Trump victory “would be a disaster for everything Democrats hold dear.” That, though, would be a positive thing for the nation. Another Trump victory would mean 4 more years of hitting China hard for the Chinese Communist Party’s corruption and deception. Another Trump victory would mean 4 more years of a soaring economy that works for everyone. Another Trump victory means that Republicans would expose Democrats as being weak on crime and defense, economically illiterate and that they talk a better game about the middle class than they deliver.

Next, President “Trump and the Republicans” won’t try to cheat. Sen. Franken should check with the NJ Attorney General. Democrats, not Republicans, committed voter fraud, mostly through the Vote-By-Mail, aka VBM, system in Paterson, NJ. People in glass houses should carelessly throw stones around.

Third, it’s time to retire the ‘Trump won’t leave if he loses’ line. Hillary still hasn’t accepted the results of the 2016 election. This is the worst case of projection in the history of partisan politics.

Then again, Franken’s brain is likely too fried from all the drugs he’s used during his SNL days:
