Joe Biden in Toledo |

Biden delivered remarks at the union hall skewering Trump’s COVID-19 response and making a list of promises including job creation and a middle-class tax cut.

TOLEDO, Ohio — Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden addressed a private event at the UAW Local 14 union hall on Jackman Road in west Toledo on Monday, taking shots at President Donald Trump over his response to the coronavirus pandemic and vowing to “build back better” using American labor.

Taking the stage in the parking lot, in front of several American cars, including Toledo’s own Wrangler and Gladiator, Biden intoned, “Hello, Toledo! This feels like coming home. My dad was an auto guy. … My state used to have the largest percentage of autoworkers in the nation.”

Biden thanked both Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz and U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, as well as UAW Local 14 President Tony Totty and UAW Benefits Representative Kenyetta Jones for

Biden slams Trump ‘throughline’ from rhetoric to Whitmer’s ISIS-style kidnap plot

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden compared the foiled kidnap plot against Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to an Islamic State terrorist attack, blaming President Trump for implicitly encouraging it.

“There is a throughline from President Trump’s dog whistles and tolerance of hate, vengeance, and lawlessness to plots such as this one. He is giving oxygen to the bigotry and hate we see on the march in our country,” Biden said Thursday.

The two-term vice president and 36-year Delaware senator referenced Trump’s tweets from the spring, when he urged supporters to “LIBERATE MICHIGAN!” after Whitmer imposed strict, unpopular lockdown measures at the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

“When protesters with swastikas and Confederate flags, nooses, and assault rifles descended on Michigan’s capitol echoing the president’s own refrain to ‘lock her up,’ President Trump called them ‘very good people,'” he said, comparing Trump’s comments to those he

Taylor Swift Wears “Voter” Necklace Endorsing Joe Biden

Taylor Swift is making her 2020 presidential endorsement in the most Taylor way possible: with a plateful of incredibly decorated cookies and some dainty jewelry. The Folklore singer recently opened up to V magazine about her intentions to vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, and on Oct. 7, she shared her plans for the evening’s debate between the California senator and Mike Pence.

“Gonna be watching and supporting @kamalaharris by yelling at the tv a lot,” she captioned her photo. “And I also have custom cookies.” Over the last few years, Taylor has become more vocal about the importance of participating in elections. She told V, “I will proudly vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in this year’s presidential election. Under their leadership, I believe America has a chance to start the healing process it so desperately needs.”

To echo that sentiment, Taylor let her accessories send

Jane Fonda says coronavirus is ‘God’s gift to the left’ because it could help Biden defeat Trump

Actress Jane Fonda called coronavirus “God’s gift to the left” because it allowed Americans to see President Trump isn’t helping the working class.

The far-left star was busy urging Americans to vote for Democratic nominee Joe Biden and said the upcoming election is a crossroads for the nation.


“We are people who can help determine which way humanity goes. What a great gift, what a tremendous opportunity, we’re just so lucky, we just have to use it with every ounce of intelligence and courage and wherewithal we have,” Fonda said in a video published online.

“I just think COVID is God’s gift to the left,” Fonda continued. “That’s a terrible thing to say. I think it was a very difficult thing to send down to us, but it has ripped the Band-Aid off who [Trump] is and what he stands for and

New cosmetics company ‘Biden Beauty’ promotes voting for the Democratic candidate

With less than a month away from the U.S. presidential election, companies are getting creative in how they encourage American consumers to vote.

This includes a new fashion and cosmetics brand known as “Biden Beauty.”

The Democrat-leaning company made its social media debut towards the end of September and has been serving as a voter registration resource while encouraging U.S. adults to vote for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.


“Voting is crucial and statistics show that Gen Z (those born between 1996 and 2015) can make or break this election,” Biden Beauty wrote in its first Instagram post. “For 2020, Pew Research projects one out of ten eligible voters will represent Gen Z, which will compose 24 million potential voters. But among eligible Gen Z voters from the 2019 primaries, data showed only 30% voted, a historically

Biden campaign sees opportunity in military women, spouses, people of color

Nearly 500 retired generals, admirals and senior civilian national security officials endorse Joe Biden and blast President Donald Trump.


This story was published in partnership with The 19th, a nonprofit, nonpartisan newsroom reporting on gender, politics and policy.

As the military’s support of President Donald Trump declines, according to recent polls, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign is working to woo both veterans and the families of active military members by capitalizing on media reports of Trump’s comments about the military, as well as the support of a high-profile military spouse. 

Given the increased diversity of the military — which has been going up for decades even as the total veteran population declines — talking to women and voters of color are key to the Biden campaign’s strategy.

‘Biden Beauty’ Might Be the Most Bizarre Presidential Candidate Merch Yet

With just over a month left until the election, it’s not exactly a surprise that things are getting weird—especially on the merch front. The official Joe Biden store has already sold out of the “Will You Shut Up, Man?” T-shirts that appeared online less than an hour after the exasperated former veep said those words on the debate stage, but the “No Meowlarky” cat collars and the “I Paid More in Taxes Than Donald Trump” shirts are still in stock. 

Not to be outdone, President Donald Trump is selling a 10-pack of “I Heart Trump” plastic straws, MAGA Dad whisky glasses, and an official Trump coloring book, which the President’s director of communications seems to enjoy reading out loud. And yeah, that shady unofficial “White House Gift Shop” is still offering its $125 coronavirus commemorative coin.

But the strangest drop of the year has to be Biden Beauty, a brand

Biden Beauty Is A Real Thing That’s Happening. Here’s What We Know.


From Seventeen

Just when you thought 2020 had no surprises left, Biden Beauty enters the chat. The latest beauty venture isn’t associated with presidential nominee Joe Biden himself, although he and Harris have reportedly given the mystery brand their seal of approval, according to Fashionista. Instead, it’s backed by a mystery figure with a political agenda.

And while the civically-minded wizard behind Biden Beauty is masked, its intentions are not: Beat your Face. Beat Trump. The brand is launching Biden Beat, a dual-sided beauty blender that sells for $20.20. Biden Beauty is also debuting sweatshirts, tote bags, buttons, and pins adorned with the candidate’s name and the phrase “America Is Beautiful.” More beauty products are set to drop in the coming weeks, with all proceeds benefitting the DNC and Biden/Harris campaign.

“Beauty has always been inherently political,” a spokesperson from the brand said in

Biden Beauty is trolling Trump with makeup sponges

The lifestyle industry is uniformly committed to convincing voters to elect Joe Biden this fall. Reacting to the dire stakes of the 2020 presidential election, tons of influential designers and retailers are hawking pro-democracy products that double as get-out-the-vote fundraisers. Now the beauty industry is getting in on the political agitating, with an anonymous start-up selling cheeky products to raise money for the Biden/Harris campaign.

Biden Beauty launched on Wednesday, backed by a mysterious coven of industry insiders. The Biden/Harris campaign officially had nothing to do with this unconventional mashup of makeup and politics, but Fashionista reported they’re aware and amused by the grassroots effort.

The first and only product available at launch is a simple blue makeup sponge selling for $20.20 — called the “BIDEN Beat,” taglined with the phrase, “Beat your face. Beat Trump.” Biden Beauty is also currently selling merch like sweatshirts, tote bags, and buttons, and

What the Hell is Biden Beauty?

A new “beauty brand” was announced on Wednesday called Biden Beauty—yes it is named after Joe Biden but no it’s not coming from his campaign. Despite labeling itself as a beauty brand and being represented by a beauty PR company, Biden Beauty sells but a single beauty product: the Biden Beat, which is a blue makeup sponge priced at $20.20, clever. Other merch on BB’s page includes a hoodie, a tote, and some pins and stickers all devoted to “Joe Biden’s natural beauty” but not items that will do anything for the wearer’s beauty. It’s unclear whether this is a cosmic joke, a makeup school final project gone wrong, or something sponsored by Ellen (seriously those hoodies look like Ellen’s show font). It also is very confusing why Joe Biden, who is an average-looking man at best, inspired this product, but it’s 2020 and
