The Associated Press is reporting that Joe Biden won’t show to deliver his acceptance speech at the DNC convention in Milwaukee.
The report claims Biden won’t show because of fears of the coronavirus.
Is this foreshadowing a move toward virtual debates? It’s interesting that the comment below from the AP mentions “the latest blow” to tradition in campaigning. Will presidential debates be next?
“It is the latest example of the pandemic’s sweeping effects on the 2020 presidential election and the latest blow to traditional party nominating conventions that historically have marked the start of fall general election campaigns.”
DNC Chair Tom Perez ironically claims that Democrats put the “health and safety of the American people first:
“From the very beginning of this pandemic, we put the health and safety of the American people first. “We followed the science, listened to doctors and public health experts, and we continued making adjustments to our plans in order to protect lives. That’s the kind of steady and responsible leadership America deserves. And that’s the leadership Joe Biden will bring to the White House.”
Isn’t it the Democrats who allowed thugs to riot with zero social distancing? Masks?
Didn’t Democrats just hold a political spectacle funeral for John Lewis where social distancing wasn’t observed?
Didn’t Michigan’s Dem governor gather and march in a big crowd with ZERO social distancing?
The Democrats want to have it both ways.
Biden was recently seen in public where it appeared like he was being led around like a child:
In what Donald Trump Jr. is calling a scene from “A Weekend at Bernie’s,” Biden is seen being escorted LIKE A CHILD by a female staffer from a campaign office. Trump Jr. tweeted, “It’s ‘A Weekend at Bernie’s’ but for the nuclear football… This would be sad if it wasn’t so scary. Biden obviously has no idea what’s happening around him.” The Biden campaign’s attempt to keep their “stellar candidate” away from the media is not a rarity as Biden has been using the Chinese virus as an excuse to stay in his basement.

Does this look like a man who could debate President Trump?
