I have awesome news for Joe Biden: Anything negative from his past doesn’t matter.
Anita Hill? Not an issue.
Getting too touchy with women? No problem.
Votes that, looking back, were ill-advised? Hey, shit happens.
I point this out because, as time has passed, I’ve noticed that a particular defense mechanism is routinely employed by supporters of Donald Trump when you evoke, oh, the “grab ’em by the pussy” comment, or the lie about helping with the Ground Zero recovery, or his repeated “Barack Obama was a Kenyan-born Muslim” line, or his mocking of a POW, or his lies about inaugural size and a Boy Scouts jamboree, or his fictitious past as a scrappy kid who started with nothing.
The defense: None of that is important, because I like what he’s doing now.
Seriously, it’s all the rage.
Hey Jake: No chaos at the White House Fake News reports. Staff changes don’t matter to most Americans; just the chattering class like you. We don’t care about Trump’s past women either. What matters is today and what Trump is getting done now. Too bad Trump can’t ?You. JM

He’s doing great for the economy! Don’t you care about that? Give it up already. We don’t care about Trump’s past personal life. Did you care about Clinton’s personal life? I only care about what he’s doing for the country economically!

Why can’t they do their jobs and make things happen for the American people? I don’t care about Trump’s past, his tax returns or any of the things the Dems are focused on. I want to see results, which Pres. Trump is giving us in spades. Fix our borders! Fix our bridges!

Hey extreme leftists tweeting to me on my opinions…I love to block your ridiculousness. #WalkAway #WakeUpAmerica #Mueller, we don’t care about #Trump ‘s past, his former gal pal scandals, divorces, ect. We want a wall, & economic growth & capitalism back, not NWO or socialism

Sounds like a threat. And for all you trolls: I don’t care about Trump’s past. I hired a President with skills to do a big job and clean up a yuge mess, not a minister.

I voted for Trump to destroy the Liberal hypocrisy, the betrayal of congress and the lying media. I never voted for perfection and I don’t care about Trump’s past. Nothing Trump has done holds a candle to the crimes of Democrats.

So … great. The past doesn’t matter. It’s what you do now, and only what you do now.
Let’s remember that.
