(FamilyRetirementClub.com)- Presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has refused to hold political rallies this year, in a monumental moment for American electoral history. Here is a mainstream party presidential candidate refusing to go out in the public and rally his supporters, conveniently using the coronavirus as an excuse.
How many people do you think would turn up if Sleepy Joe Biden left his basement to host a rally?
77-year-old Biden said in a rare press conference on Tuesday that he won’t hold any rallies during the pandemic, even though rallies can be held with social distancing measures in place, with the wearing of masks mandated. Biden just doesn’t want to risk it.
“This is the most unusual campaign I think in modern history,” he said.
He’s got that right.
“I’m going to follow the doc’s orders – not just for me but for the country – and that means I am not going to be holding rallies.”
The doctor’s orders he refers to include the recommendation that elderly and vulnerable people do not expose themselves to the outdoors or public crowds more than necessary, as the Chinese coronavirus is more deadly to older people.
COVID-19 has proven to be extremely convenient for former Vice President Joe Biden, who has displayed severe cognitive decline in recent years. From getting names wrong to relying on teleprompters and struggling to get through full sentences, Joe Biden is clearly struggling to hold himself together as a candidate and the COVID outbreak offers a convenient excuse to keep him hidden from the public.
Biden did say on Tuesday that he will be connecting with voters in whatever way he can throughout the campaign, including short trips where they “keep social distancing.”
“Everybody has masks on. Soon as I finish saying something, I put my mask back on…I have traveled, but when I do, I get in, make my case, and take questions and leave. But you know me: I’d much rather be out there with people because that’s where I get the greatest feel.”
Somehow I get the feeling people don’t really believe that.
This is certainly convenient for Biden. The less people see of him, the better he seems to do in the polls. Is it because people don’t realize just how bad he is?
