Boner Candidate #1: YOU SIR, ARE SLIME

WASHINGTON — President Trump’s eldest son on Saturday posted a social media message suggesting Joseph R. Biden Jr. was a pedophile, an incendiary and baseless charge that illustrates the tactics the president is turning to as he attempts to erase Mr. Biden’s early advantage in key state polls. Donald Trump Jr., who is one of his father’s most prominent campaign surrogates, put on Instagram a picture of Mr. Biden saying: “See you later, alligator” alongside an image of an alligator saying: “In a while, pedophile.” When a reporter shared the Instagram post online, the younger Mr. Trump, echoing one of his father’s tactics, wrote on Twitter that he was only “joking around” and noted that he had included emojis of a laughing face. Yet in the same Twitter post, he also reprised his original insinuation. He accused the former vice president of “unwanted touching” alongside a collage of photographs of Mr. Biden showing affection for children. The misleading images were mostly taken from public swearing-in ceremonies at the Capitol, where the former vice president warmly greeted lawmakers and their families.

Travis Miller Sr., an appliance and furniture deliveryman, had just completed his eighth and last delivery of the day last Monday and was attempting to leave a gated community with a co-worker when a white car blocked his path to the neighborhood’s only exit. “I think things would have gone differently if I was white,” Mr. Miller, 43, who is black, said in an interview. “His issue was with the people inside the truck.” After the driver of the white vehicle, a white man, refused to move, Mr. Miller took out his phone and started recording, using Facebook Live to make sure he had evidence of his innocence for his employer. The 37-minute video has been viewed more than half a million times since he first shared it in real time during the confrontation on the afternoon of May 11. “I’m trying to leave, and I got Super Neighbor over here blocking me in, so I’m going live,” Mr. Miller said at the beginning of the video. “This is what I’m dealing with right now.”
