“More evidence Biden is lowering salience of presidency & politics.”
A statement made regarding the lower number of people who watched
Biden's address to congress.
"Salience" is not a word I knew or a word I'd ever seen used. One
definition is "the property of being noticeable or important.
So Biden is lowering the importance/notability of Politics
I think fewer people watched the address because Biden was not
expected to provide the theater of a Trump address,
Or maybe it was because they are fed up of MrB 'misspeaking' all the time.
and because the
limited number of the attendees in the chamber would result in less of
political circus. Trump has made TV ratings our yardstick.
The man who has repeatedly said don't watch the television it is all
fake news has made viewing figures the yard stick ?
But, does that describe evidence of a lowered importance of politics
or the presidency?
BYW Trump is now just a private citizen (ok with security etc) .
So why do you think he is worthy of mention?
If you don't think that the guy who, if he ever gets back into office,
will follow Evo Morales's lead and arrest the outgoing president (and
vice president if Biden were to survive until 2025) as a usurper; then I
don't know what to tell you.
Trump isn't done and he's a clear and present danger to the Dem party
until such time as he's in the ground.
The only questions are whether you think that qualifies as a one-party
STATE, or if it doesn't because "Washington coordinates low-level
international relations for fifty separate nation-states"; and whether
you think that said one-party arrangement is a good or a terrible thing.
Your comment tells us all which side you're on; mine tells YOU that if
Trump is restored, I'll die in prison.
