The Trump campaign, evidently, wasn’t terribly pleased with the dueling town halls between President Trump on NBC and Democratic nominee Joe Biden on ABC Thursday night. And Trump campaign senior adviser Mercedes Schlapp, who spent two years as Trump’s White House director of strategic communications, had an interesting way expressing that displeasure.
This isn’t the diss you think it is. https://t.co/OWbShLAXKt

Comparing Joe Biden to Fred Rogers certainly isn’t unreasonable, but it is an interesting strategy if you want to win over anyone who loved and respected the long-running PBS show, who died in 2003. Even if you didn’t revere Mister Rogers, nobody considered him a scary antifa-loving socialist, though you could maybe view his calming demeanor as “sleepy.”
I’m confused. Has Donald Trump been vowing to make suburban neighborhoods safe from Mr. Rogers?

She meant that as an insult, but I think Joe Biden would take it as a compliment. As any decent person would.

Thankful for all the lessons Mr. Rogers taught us growing up.
