Biden goes months without holding press conference

Biden goes months without holding press conference

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has now gone well over two months without holding a press conference, fueling accusations from the Trump campaign that the former VP is spending the campaign “hiding in his basement.”

“It has been 76 days since Joe Biden has held a press conference. Americans are starting to question if Joe Biden is up to the challenge," deputy press secretary Ken Farnaso told Fox News. "Team Trump stands with Team Biden in calling for equal coverage of his events, gaffes and all."

Biden last held a virtual news briefing on April 2, fielding questions from a variety of reporters while hunkered down in his Delaware home as the coronavirus pandemic essentially put the presidential campaign on ice and the country on lockdown. Before that, the former vice president had held an in-person press conference the day after Super Tuesday on March 4, and then a virtual press conference on March 25.

Taking time off from press conferences is not unheard of. Back in 2016, then-candidate Donald Trump went 168 days without a formal press conference, and took heat for it, although he was taking questions from smaller gatherings. This year, the coronavirus pandemic put press events clearly on the backburner.

Yet Biden still has given individual interviews and managed to hold a variety of other virtual and real-world events including fundraisers, town halls and other appearances, especially in recent weeks, as states have started to emerge from lockdowns.

Other politicians and officials, including President Trump, have managed to hold press conferences, virtual or otherwise. At the start of the pandemic, Trump was holding briefings with his coronavirus task force members almost every day.

*********************************************

Somebody who is running for President should be outside and answering questions that the people have of them, instead Biden is still hiding in his basement and not answering anything.

Just because DonaldTrump doesn’t care about people whether they support him or not, endangering them in the process due to his lies and lack of leadership about the pandemic, doesn’t mean that Joe Biden also needs to be stupidly foolishly irresponsible like the Orange Blob in the WH.

There were no complaints when they protest and riot, only when it might benefit Trump. Over a million people want to attend.

I love your consistency, MM. You complained about the protesters as far as the spread of covid 19 was concerned (probably the ONLY time I ever agreed with you) but you seem to think it's okay when there's a mass indoor rally for Trump. What, covid 19 won't spread there just as well?

The difference in the motivation of the two is that, following the horrendous murder of a black man that the entire nation saw, there was a cry of "Enough!" and for social change. This is a major social movement against racism and, while it will undoubtedly prove to be tragic that it occurred during a pandemic, you can't (well maybe YOU can) question the hearts of 99% of the protesters. Note, I said protesters, not those who chose to riot.

The Oklahoma rally, however, which will also cause the virus to spread, is completely avoidable. It is being staged to appease Trump's re-election hopes. I note that Trump supporters NEVER mention the fact that their orange topped hero doesn't care if some of his supporters die as a result of it. Hell,  he's such a cold blooded bastard (always thinking of self) that he even has those attending signing wavers that they can't sue him afterward if they get sick. Even that doesn't stop these morons from attending.

History will record this Oklahoma rally as one of the dumbest and most irresponsible acts ever performed by a U.S. President during a national health crisis (as well as question the intelligence of those in denial of scientific reality who chose to attend). It only confirms once against that Donald Trump is a man without a conscience and not a lot of his supporters will ever get top scores in I.Q. tests .

You Trump supporters like to fall back on that line a lot. Maybe it's because you've nothing else to fall back upon, outside of smears of Biden. I admit, though, I wish the election was today rather than four and a half months from now.

But in all of your reminders about how wrong the polls were in 2016 I notice that you never make any mention of how right they were in 2018 when Trump got his **** kicked in the House of Representatives. And 2018 is a lot closer to the mood of the electorate today than is 2016 when he was a less well known commodity, isn't it?

Just remember, these fools are voting for a leader who advised them to inject themselves with disinfectant and to drink bleach.   America is becoming irrelevant quite quick.  It won't be long before every country in the world closes its borders to the USA.

Is that a joke? Or it it just more alternate reality?

The point is that Trump BELIEVED (!!!) that disinfectants taken internally were good for the human body. He also thought that Finland was part of Russia. Is your hatred of all things "liberal" so great that you deliberately put on blinkers to everything this profoundly ignorant man says?

Nice try but Trump's miracle cure was clearly aimed at people with little or no education.  In other words his supporters.  People with college degrees doan drink bleach.

his haters say trump is the worst president in U.S. history but fail to explain why he should have any chance of being reelected.

they doan want to. it's easy. trump has proven himself a goods deliverer in contrast to years of GOP establishment BS by a bunch of careerists who never delivered anything. (like 2 conservative  SCOTUS judges)

it's like this...

if trump is defeated in november I will not be surprised...

but neither will I be surprised if he is reelected.

isn't it amazing how such a bad guy has such a good chance at a 2nd term?

:P

Donald Trump is counting on being re-elected  by using the same tactics as 4 years ago,  LIE, CHEAT, STEAL!  He has foreign countries put on notice to help him meddle in the election, directly or indirectly: Russia, China, Ukraine, etc. etc. etc.  He has the GOP everywhere making it difficult for people to vote, specifically constituencies that favor the Dems, throwing many off the rolls, closing most polls in those areas, reducing early voting, curtailing voting by mail.  He lies and smears Biden with everything he is accused of, because enough idiots will believe this, thinking they are each equally corrupt, or that one is no better than the other.

The thing is, Donald Trump is the INCUMBENT; he cannot get away with blaming the system the swamp, whatever.  HE filled the swamp!  HE  botched the COVID response, and the meltdown of the economy,.  HE is to blame for the mess we’re in.  Only the stupid brain dead base believe otherwise.  All the fence sitters now see the difference, every time Joe Biden speaks, with what a real presidential response should be.  On EVERYTHING.  THEY won’t get fooled again.  
 

Even the elderly are no longer totally for Trump.  Besides Trump and the GOP Not caring that this demographic is most affected by the virus, and Trump not doing anything meaningful to help them, THEY remember what every other president would have done, and had done.  Take responsibility and do everything possible to resolve the crisis.  Not quit when you get bored, or encourage your stupid followers to get out there, because it’s all a hoax anyway.  
 

Trump got away with this for 3 years, but then got tested by a real crisis.  He Is UNWILLING OR UNABLE to do anything to get the country out of the mess.  Everyone but the koolaid drinking, bleach drinking MAGA crowd Now sees the Orange fool for the fool he has always been.
 

So yeah, LYING,  CHEATING, STEALING is the only way Trump can get re-elected!
