The Biden campaign staged a pre-celebratory event outside the Trump trial in Manhattan this morning. They publicized it in an announcement intended to attract the attention of their supporters in the press. The press conference was strategically located outside the courthouse where Trump is on trial.

The brains of the campaign operation thought it would be a good idea to feature Robert De Niro as its preeminent “special guest” for a statement. I don’t know about you, but when I want sage political advice, De Niro is top of mind. He is wise. He is fair. He speaks for the average show-business American.

The excitement of the Biden campaign is palpable. The White House professes not to have had anything to do with this particular prosecution, but it is ready to rumble with the conviction it anticipates. The Biden campaign has gone so far at to promise to wake Biden when the jury returns a verdict.
