Joe Biden's galaxy brain handlers plan to use any 'guilty' verdicts in Donald Trump's criminal trials to campaign on, unaware that most of the country views them as political lawfare by the permanent ruling class hatched in coordination with Biden's own DOJ.

According to Politico, citing four people familiar with internal deliberations;

Biden intends to initially address the verdict in a White House setting — not a campaign one — to show his statement isn’t political, according to the people, who were granted anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.

If the jury convicts Trump, Biden’s team will then argue that the result shows Trump is ill-suited for office and that it demonstrates the extremes to which the former president would go to win again. The campaign’s social media team is considering leveraging the line of attack further, with discussions underway about referring to the ex-president online as “Convicted Felon Donald Trump.”

The report comes as closing arguments are set for Tuesday in Trump's 'hush money' trial, which saw the prosecution's star witness, Michael Cohen, implode on the stand. Of course, a Manhattan jury won't care - so a Trump 'guilty' verdict wouldn't come as a surprise.

"This is an important moment and the president first and foremost needs to stress that the American system works, even and especially in an election year," said one of Politico's anonymous sources. "And in a measured way, it becomes part of his argument against Trump too: Do Americans really want this?"

Do voters want a president being transparently pursued for partisan reasons by a behemoth government that fewer than two-in-ten Americans trust?

This goes hand-in-hand with why the left can't meme and are desperate to find someone who can.

At least one Democrat sees how stupid this is.

"I don’t think it’s important to rub it in," Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA) told Politico. "I don’t think anybody on our side should be reacting with glee. It just should be a tragedy that an American president has been convicted of real crimes."
