Democrat nominee Joe Biden announced on Tuesday that he will not hold any campaign rallies for the upcoming election due to the coronavirus threat.
“This is the most unusual campaign, I think, in modern history,” Biden said during his first press conference in months. “I start off with the premise that I’m going to follow the [doctor’s] orders, not just for me, but for the country. That means I am not going to be holding rallies.”
Democrats, and the mainstream media piled on President Trump for holding a campaign rally in Tulsa on June 20, complaining that the rally could turn into a coronavirus “super-spreader” event.
Biden tweeted the day of the rally, “Donald Trump is so eager to get back to his campaign rallies that he’s willing to put people at risk and violate CDC guidelines — as long as they sign a waiver promising not to hold his campaign liable.”
Of course, Biden conveniently ignored the large social gatherings across the nation protesting to defund the police.
Biden’s campaign is gambling that the American people will still vote for Biden even though he refuses to leave his basement to attend any town halls or press conferences to answer questions about his platform.
The most the American people may see from Biden until the November election is the three debates his campaign finally agreed to last week.
Though Biden and his campaign have couched his decision to forego campaign events leading up to the election in terms of coronavirus risk, we all know what’s going on here — Every single time Biden appears in front of the camera or in public, he commits egregious gaffes that only provide more ammunition for the Trump campaign.
It’s much safer — politically — for Biden to stay home while his press secretary, Symone Sanders, does all the talking for him.
