Democrat strategists are all too happy to keep Joe Biden in the basement, using coronavirus concerns as a cover for why the Democrat nominee can’t return to the campaign trail.
However, even the most dedicated Trump enemies have to admit that when he does return to regular public appearances, the consequences could be devastating for his public image and the November election as a whole.
Notorious Trump Critic Chris Wallace of Fox News was forced to admit on Saturday that Joe Biden’s public performance is “very shaky” and could have major consequences for Democrat hopes in November.
Donald Trump is preparing to relaunch his famous rally schedule in the coming weeks, and voters are expected to turn out in staggering numbers. Wallace told Fox’s Jesse Watters that “everything can change the race,” and pointed to Biden’s campaign trail performance as the key to beating Trump in November.
Democrat strategists have taken advantage of the coronavirus crisis to keep Joe Biden from committing his famous gaffes, but he can’t stay in the basement forever. Donald Trump is hitting the campaign trail in June, and Democrats are still saying that Biden may not come out of hiding until August.
“And then you put your finger on another big thing, which is Joe Biden’s performance because he’s very shaky,” Wallace remarked. “There’s no question about it on the campaign trail. And, you know, at some point he’s going to have to get out of the basement and go campaign out. We think certainly by the Democratic convention in August.”
“And it’s always interesting when Joe Biden gets in front of a microphone,” Wallace admitted.
Interesting indeed. On June 10th, Biden made a rare appearance at a Philadelphia round table to discuss concerns about police brutality and systemic racism. He shocked viewers by claiming that the death of George Floyd is more significant than the assassination of renowned civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr.
“Even Dr. King’s assassination did not have the worldwide impact that George Floyd’s death did,” Biden remarked. “Well, what happened to George Floyd, now you’ve got how many people around the country? Millions of cell phones, it’s changed the way everybody’s looking at this,” the former vice president said. “Look at the millions of people marching around the world.”
