“Coronavirus concerns” is the biggest buzzphrase of 2020, and it’s one that Joe Biden has taken full advantage of. Most recently, Biden’s campaign announced on Wednesday that Biden has made the final decision to cancel plans to travel to Milwaukee for the Democratic National Convention in August.
As Donald Trump ramps up criticism of the Biden campaign’s decision to keep the 77-year-old presidential candidate hidden away, Biden’s handlers are doubling down on the controversial strategy.
Jeff Zeleny, a senior Washington correspondent for CNN, reported on Wednesday that, “Joe Biden now plans to accept the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in a Delaware speech — not in Milwaukee, which had been the plan for months.”
It’s probably a good decision, though, considering that Biden is incapable of making a public appearance that isn’t tightly controlled by his handlers without committing earthshattering gaffes.
In an interview on Tuesday, Biden snapped at reporter Errol Barnett with the National Association of Black Journalists, who asked if Biden had taken a cognitive health test.
After Barnett graciously and quickly moved past the comment, Biden reiterated that he is “very willing to let the American people judge my physical, mental fil–my physical as well as my mental fil–fitness.”
