The Potemkin Candidate

Joe Biden is the Potemkin Candidate

In politics and economics, a Potemkin village is any construction (literal or figurative) built solely to deceive others into thinking that a situation is better than it really is. The term comes from stories of a fake portable village built solely to impress Empress Catherine II by her former lover Grigory Potemkin, during her journey to Crimea in 1787. While modern historians claim accounts of this portable village are exaggerated, the original story was that Potemkin erected phony portable settlements along the banks of the Dnieper River in order to impress the Russian Empress; the structures would be disassembled after she passed, and re-assembled farther along her route to be viewed again as if another example. The term is translated from the Russian: потёмкинские деревни.

How else do you explain the ubiquitous teleprompter in EVERY engagement Joe has with the press? You could hire an actor to play Joe Biden, let him read the pre-scripted answers and refuse to take any question from the press. If you closed your eyes, could you tell the difference? If Joe Biden is a shell of his former self, why do the main stream media close their eyes to this obvious deception of Joe passing off as his own, the thoughts and words of others?

And if Joe is just a cardboard cutout, a mannequin or ventriloquist's dummy from which other people's words and thoughts come out, what can America expect after this husk of a man is inaugurated, only to be replaced by someone farther to his (and America's) Left?

Vote like your country depended on it. It does. Re-elect Trump.
