Joe Biden and the Democrats have completely ignored the rioting in American cities. They didn’t even mention the subject during their convention last week.
This week, CNN’s Don Lemon talked about how the riots were starting to affect the Democrats’ poll numbers.
And magically, 24 hours later, Biden finally said something.
Michael Goodwyn of the New York Post says it’s too late:
Joe Biden finally breaks silence on urban violence, too late
For the first time in three days, the biggest political news of the day didn’t come out of the Republican convention. It came out of a basement in Delaware.
Joe Biden finally raised an objection to the riots, arson, murder and looting tearing apart American cities. To be sure, his wasn’t a strong voice, but at least he finally broke his silence.
“The needless violence won’t heal us,” the Democrats’ nominee said in a statement focused mostly on the police shooting of Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wis.
It’s very little, and very late, maybe even too late to save his campaign.
Dems made what I believe to be a historic error in failing to say a single word — a single word — about the national urban crisis during their convention last week.

Are Joe Biden and Democrats ‘ignoring’ protest and riot damage? They’d rather not address an issue, especially if it’s going to hurt their election chances, @MarkHalperin tells Newsmax TV. https://t.co/VlT7z8drtO pic.twitter.com/VZ7FYbtP48

Biden also accused Trump of wanting the riots. Because of course.

Joe Biden and the Democrats didn’t care when people’s lives and businesses were being destroyed.
They only took notice when it started affecting their poll numbers.
