In light of the Ukraine call revelations, I'm going to renew my observation: Donald is not gunning for Biden because he fears him, but because he doesn't.

Biden is his preferred opponent in the general. He's hoping for a Biden win in the primary.
Biden has all the vulnerabilities Hillary Clinton did. Literally. He's the easiest person on the table to take literally every But Her Emails and Uranium One conspiracy theory and just transfer it verbatim, as a member of President Obama's administration.
By taking shots at him now, Hair Furor not only weakens Biden in the general but he anoints Biden as his rival, aiding his frontrunner status.
Donald's campaign was heavily data-driven. Republicans *pretend* to believe elections will hinge on how many of them and their leaners can be persuaded to cross the aisle, but they know the truth: Democratic turnout determines the results.
As the centrist candidate, Biden will get all the reliable Democratic voters and some Nevers who have left the Republican Party. Who will he excite? Who will he turnout? Who will he inspire? Not many.
A reliable Democratic voter and an "Anyone But Individual One" voter will by definition vote no matter who the candidate is, though
Add to this that Donald is an "anti-establishment" candidate who ran on grievances against the Obama administration. A Biden candidacy lets him renew those narratives and play to his strengths despite being the incumbent.
