PFD To Joe Biden: Drop Dead

In a stunning move, the Philadelphia Firefighters and Paramedics Union voted to endorse President Trump in the 2020 presidential election. The union broke from the heavily Democratic International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF), which almost always endorses the Democrat nominee.

The Philadelphia Firefighters’ and Paramedics’ Union broke from the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) and “proudly” endorsed President Trump for re-election, citing the overwhelming support for the president among members.

“The Philadelphia Firefighters’ and Paramedics’ Union, Local 22 of the International Association of’ Fire Fighters proudly endorses President Trump for re-election,” the union announced on Tuesday, hours ahead of the first presidential debate.

My father was a Philly firefighter for more than forty years and he would have hated this decision. Personally, I think it’s glorious.

“The members of Local 22 respectfully break with the undemocratic IAFF endorsement of Joe Biden and pledge our full support to President Donald J. Trump,” President Mike Bresnan said in a statement, explaining that IAFF’s endorsement of Biden was done “without a canvas of local unions and the consideration of the rank and file IAFF membership.”

Local 22 members, which represent over 4,700 current and retired first responders, were surveyed and “overwhelmingly” chose the president, Bresnan said, adding that IAFF leaders should view the endorsement as a “wake-up call.”

The Fraternal Order of Police also runs toward the Democrats, and my local – and useless – FOP always sends out mailers encouraging us to vote for the leftists on the ballot. Most of the cops I know shred those mailers come election time, and when our local FOP considered endorsing Hillary, we unwashed masses went ballistic. Our local FOP punted in 2016, and did not endorse any candidate, despite the popularity of Trump among the members.

I don’t know if this is a turning point for Philadelphia blue collar workers. In fact, I highly doubt it. Trump is a political anomaly, and I think he resonates with regular schmoes, so he’ll likely earn some blue votes. Maybe some Philly Democrats are finally waking up to the fact that their party has done nothing to improve this city in the last seventy years.

  1. Great news! Otherwise, the Donald Trump/Chris Wallace debate was pretty worthless. I doubt many people changed their vote based on the dumpster fire of a debate.

  2. Ronni – I read the comments at Ace of Spades, and it seemed pretty awful all around. Chris Wallace is not a moderate; he’s an out-and-out leftist.

    RG – The president needs to be reelected. I fear what would happen with a Biden presidency.

    1. You should make a point to watch Dan Bongino today:

      I really changed my thinking about last night after watching him analyze the whole thing.
      I agree that a Biden presidency would be bad, but it would actually be worse since Kamala Harris would step in and it would be even worse.

    1. A few conservative commenters mentioned this and it makes sense to me. The campaign likely reviewed Biden’s debate with Paul Ryan, and saw how Ryan basically lost because he never fought back. I think Trump figured, screw it, I’m not going down like that.

      I don’t know. With the cheat factor, I really don’t know if Trump wins this one.
