Without a doubt, the vast majority of rioting and looting that has been going on for months has occurred in Democrat-controlled cities.
And Democrats haven’t just recently gained control of them. Democrats have run them for decades.
But because new polling shows that swing-state voters and Independents are moving in the direction of the president and Republicans who are calling for “law and order,” suddenly Democrats who have not been condemning the rioters and looters are getting spooked.
Which explains why the party’s lame, mind-addled nominee, Joe Biden, is now trying to cast blame on President Trump — who has literally pressured and cajoled resistance Democratic mayors and governors to accept federal assistance to quell the rioting and destruction.
Biden told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Thursday:
The problem we have right now is we're in Donald Trump's America. You know, to quote Kellyanne Conway, she said, and I'm paraphrasing today, they're looking for more violence and more destruction because it helps them politically.
He views this as a political benefit for him, he's rooting for more violence, not less, and he's clear about that. What's he doing? He's pouring gasoline on the fire. This happens to be Donald Trump's America. In Donald Trump's America COVID is out of control, he's not prepared for it, he hasn't responded to it, and he continues to do nothing to deal with it.
We have 15 million people out of work. It just is amazing how, if you noticed, they didn't speak about COVID, and they didn't speak about any of the reasons why we're doing what's happening in Kenosha is happening.
Donald Trump is not responsible for any of this.
He didn’t bring COVID to the U.S., China did.
He didn’t tell governors to shut down their economies for the entire year.
He isn’t responsible for mass unemployment.
He is the presidential contender now trying to clean up messes made in states and cities by members of Biden’s party.
He is literally acting to quell the violence. It’s the Democrats and their corporate benefactors who want more of it because they want control, as Tucker Carlson brilliantly explains:
Kenosha devolved into anarchy because the authorities abandoned the people. Those in charge, from the governor on down, refused to enforce the law. They've stood back and watched Kenosha burn. Are we really surprised that looting and arson accelerated to murder? pic.twitter.com/oul2KUiDi3

Biden knows who’s responsible for Democrat-run cities: His party. But he has to change the narrative because Americans are blaming Democrats, not Trump (and rightfully so).
Biden's inflation is GETTING WORSE by the month...
Around the world, supply chains continue to be disrupted. Delays are now commonplace. And they're going to get worse.
There IS a financial reset coming - that's just true. All the signs indicate as much.
