Biden’s Not the Best Trump Goader

“In a party where every major politician (and presidential candidate) is fiercely anti-Trump, Biden isn’t even the most clever at goading him. Nancy Pelosi is the gold standard, with Pete Buttigieg and Elizabeth Warren coming up strong.”

Not only that, but attendees will enjoy the rarefied atmosphere of the Mellon Auditorium.
