... You can’t get elected by simply being a generic candidate, which is what these guys have concluded, that Biden is a generic candidate... So Mr. Thaddeus G. McCotter tells his two buddies here “that the Democrats are running a ‘gaslight election.’*

“What was missing from the Democratic Party was a real candidate and issues. In the past, these have been requisite for waging a campaign for the White House. Today, though, the Democrats, quite deliberately, have turned the 2020 presidential election from a contest into a referendum.” They’re actually asking people to vote against Donald Trump’s personality. That’s it! That’s the sum total of their campaign.

Stop and think of that. They are actively trying to rev people up, get ’em ginned up, get ’em mad, get ’em angry, get ’em motivated over a guy’s personality....

Because, you see, we know “Biden is not driving and has not driven the campaign. He and his running mate, Senator Kamala Harris, are both along for the opaque windowed limousine ride. Biden-Harris are nothing but a Democratic generic ballot: ‘Who would you vote for today, President Trump or a Democrat?'”...

... Democrats are gaslighting voters. Their goal is to conceal the Democrats’ absence of a real candidate and issues; confuse the majority of voters who believe they are better off than they were four years ago — you know, when Biden was vice president…”

Nobody was better off four years ago when Biden was vice president or when Obama was president, and the recent Gallup polls bear this out....

Donald Trump loves you. He loves the people that make America work, versus the guy who’s trying to make you oppose all that because you don’t like his personality. They certainly don’t want you aware of Donald Trump’s “proven accomplishments,”...

Self-respecting voters ought to have been saying to themselves about now: You know what? They’re asking me to vote for them, and I don’t even know what I’m voting for. They’ve got me voting against Trump ’cause I’m supposed to hate Trump’s personality, but they don’t even give me reasons to vote for them — and if pressed, they couldn’t name any....
