It’s no secret that I’m a big ice cream lover. So for #NationalDessertDay, I had to share these memories from the primary campaign trail. And I’ll add: The sweetest way to celebrate is by grabbing your favorite dessert as a reward after you make your plan to vote: makeaplan.com
A few months back, we started hearing that Donald Trump’s campaign had lost hundreds of millions of dollars through grift and terrible decision making, and that they would likely be broke for the final month of the election cycle. Whatever happened there? Who knows. What I do know is that the Biden-Harris campaign raised a record $383 million just in the month of September. That’s a new record! It beats the previous record for monthly campaign hauls set… by the Biden-Harris campaign in August, when they raised $364.5 million. The campaign released this video of Biden surprising a donor with a phone call:
The Biden-Harris campaign now has hundreds of millions in the bank to effectively make their closing arguments, and more importantly, they will have the cash on hand to launch a massive legal defense in case sh-t goes to hell on Election Night and beyond. So how are they making their closing arguments? With wonderful ads like this:

And finally, Biden is getting attention because of this wonderful tweet for National Dessert Day, which was yesterday:

This is the day where I learned that the kids don’t know that Dairy Queen used to have a whole-ass advertising campaign based on the thiccness of the Blizzard, and DQ employees used to turn the Blizzard upside down to show customers how thicc it was. Yes, Biden looks “old” by doing this, but the kids have got to know! And it was really cute. (And yes, I love that he got a soft-serve cone AND a Blizzard. Maybe the cone was for Dr. Jill?)
Context for those under 40:
DQ was on the brink of bankruptcy in the mid 80s and then they invented the Blizzard and it totally breathed new life into the chain — and the first ads showed someone turning it upside down (to distinguish from a milkshake).
