prop or not

Am girding for the criticism from friends and former friends re: mocking Biden. In 2016 I got emails like this one:

So the way I see it, your anti-Clinton posts during the campaign helped Trump. You helped Trump. That's how I see it. I could also not say this to you, but isn't it better if I say what I think. If I were in your shoes, I would have started posting lots of anti-Clinton stuff on the day after she won the election. And up until the day she won the nomination. Then I would have suspended it for 3 or 4 months. I know that you think you were not helping Trump, you were helping "neither Clinton nor Trump"... I think that's just not smart.

After I responded to this hectoring, the emailer apologized and said he "respected what I did." Then he quietly removed me from his blogroll. I wonder if I'll get the same garbage in defense of Sleepy Joe.

Afterthought: As for this blog "helping neither Clinton nor Trump," the emailer just made that statement up. It would be presumptuous (and boring) to speculate about who the writing here might be "helping." For the emailer everything is strategic; the truth (e.g., that Clinton is corrupt) can just be swatted aside, or rather, "suspended for 3 or 4 months."
