So you're wanting to buy--I dunno--maybe a rubber mallet to smash up your TV screen? Because you're tired of the kind of news reports that are being broadcast?
buy it at Home Depot.Or not."Trump-supporting billionaire Ken Langone: 'Republicans betrayed us.'"
|"I'm going to do everything I can from Day One to make sure I do my part to make Joe Biden the most successful president in the history of the country," he said. "If he's a great, successful president, we all win."|
Langone said the country is facing "major issues," citing the pandemic, mounting debt, crumbling infrastructure and an underfunded public school system.
An excerpt. (I hope that's obvious.)

I just realized that "Biden brat"
(a euphemism that had become almost a signature
in recent months of another forum member) is a phrase that was invented as a corollary to what I think is the more thoroughly popularized "Bernie bro'."
Or is that a misapprehension on my part?
I've been looking for a test case (so to speak) to help me suss out the etymology of the "Biden brat" construct, from a linguistic perspective, and this news report about Home Depot cofounder Ken Langone is tailor-made
for that purpose. So, a serendipitous occurrence.
