US Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said Tuesday he will not hold campaign rallies during the coronavirus pandemic, drawing a stark contrast with President Donald Trump who has already held large campaign gatherings.
“This is the most unusual campaign I think in modern history,” the former vice president said during a rare question-and-answer session with reporters in Delaware to discuss the pandemic and ways to mitigate the spread.
“I’m going to follow the doc’s orders — not just for me but for the country — and that means that I am not going to be holding rallies,” said Biden, who added that he has not yet been tested for COVID-19.
The creator of the popular comic strip Dilbert, Scott Adams, says he’s throwing his support behind Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden to ensure his personal safety.
“Today I announce my endorsement of Joe Biden for President of the United States in order to protect myself from racist Democrats,’ the lecturer and author wrote on Twitter Tuesday.
“So I am going to fully endorse Joe Biden… I don’t expect this will have any influence on anybody’s votes,” Adams stated, noting he does not vote, or identify as a member of any political party.
“But if it makes me safer, during this violent revolution that we seem to be seeing here, I endorse Joe Biden.”
The “violent revolution” mentioned likely refers to the recent riots in major cities across America, where Antifa agitators and communist provocateurs in coordination with violent Black Lives Matter protesters looted and burned businesses in the name of social justice.
Former Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday that he would compel Americans to wear masks in public if elected president.
In an interview with Pittsburgh CBS affiliate KDKA, Biden said that he would use federal power to “mandate” masks.
Q: I know you have been critical of the president’s handling of the pandemic in the past. But let’s look ahead. If you became president tomorrow, what would you do differently regarding the pandemic and getting these surging cases now under control?
Biden: I would go back to making sure that everybody had masks, that you had PPE [personal protective equipment] lined up, we’d have been making sure we stockpile all the things that we need that we don’t have now. The one thing we do know, these masks make a gigantic difference. I would insist that everybody out in public be wearing that mask. Anyone to reopen — would have to make sure that they walked in their business that had masks.
Q: Couldn’t you use the federal leverage to mandate that, though?
Q: Would you?
Biden: Yes, I would from an executive standpoint, yes, i would.
Q: So you would, in effect, mandate the wearing of masks.
Biden: I would do everything possible to make it required that people had to wear masks in public.
Democrat presidential contender Joe Biden emerged from his basement for a campaign rally, but as usual he couldn’t keep his words straight.
Speaking to a crowd in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on Thursday, Biden falsely claimed over 120 million Americans had died from the novel coronavirus, known as COVID-19.
“He’s not playing with a full deck, folks,” wrote the Trump War Room Twitter account.
Suggesting that violence has distracted from the movement’s message, Seattle CHOP leaders have told protesters to go home vote for “revolutionary change” by electing Joe Biden.
Far-left Black Lives Matter demonstrators have been occupying the 6 block area of downtown Seattle for weeks, but entirely as predicted it has descended into violent anarchy, with two people being shot in the space of 48 hours over the weekend.
Indications are that the police will return to take back the SPD East Precinct that was ransacked by rioters early next week, prompting CHOP leaders to urge the dispersal.
Joe Rogan was trending on Twitter as people tried yet again to have the world’s most popular podcaster canceled. It comes after he revisited his skepticism about Joe Biden’s capacity to be the next president, among other remarks.
Attempts to make Rogan disappear from public view or at least shame people into not listening to his podcasts are nothing new. They have not been successful before and don’t appear to be working now.
Why is he ‘being cancelled’ this time? There were several things that my have prompted the outrage.
In a Thursday podcast, Rogan, who usually steers clear of politics, reiterated his negative attitude to how the Democratic Party primary went in the US. He criticized the ‘vote blue no matter who’ position and said mainstream Democrats and their friendly media have been ignoring problems with the candidacy of Joe Biden, like “speeches that clearly show some kind of cognitive decline” in the former vice president.
President Trump scorched the Democrats’ blatant hypocrisy over their support for Black Lives Matter riots but not Americans who wanted to attend church during the coronavirus pandemic.
During his reelection kickoff in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Saturday, Trump noted that Democrats have a double standard when it comes to their followers and regular Americans.
“Joe Biden and the Democrats want to prosecute Americans for going to church, but not for burning a church,” Trump told his audience Saturday.
A man who knew Tara Reade during law school says that she told him she was assaulted — marking at least the eighth person to corroborate aspects of her accusations against 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden.
Reade accused the former vice president in March of kissing her, touching her, and penetrating her with his fingers without her consent when she worked for him in 1993 — allegations that Biden has vigorously and repeatedly denied.
Reade’s allegations garnered national attention in late April and early May, but subsequent media coverage of her academic credentials and her turbulent past has cast doubts on her story. Her legal representation, attorney Douglas Wigdor, abandoned her case in early May following reports that Reade lied about her undergraduate degree.
Joseph Backholm is at least the eighth person to corroborate aspects of Reade’s claims, following her mother, brother, ex-husband, former neighbor, former coworker and at least of her two friends.
Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) declared Friday morning that if black Americans are unsure whether to support him over President Donald Trump in the November election, “then you ain’t black.”
Biden made the unsolicited racially-charged remark as he departed his virtual interview with Breakfast Club co-host Charlamagne tha God.
“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden told Charlamagne, not in response to any question, but to the host’s statement: “It’s a long way until November, we’ve got more questions.”
Joe Biden said that as president he would reverse Trump administration policies that have led to Israeli plans to annex parts of the West Bank.
“I do not support annexation,” the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee told Jewish donors on Tuesday during a fundraising webinar. “I’m going to reverse Trump administration steps which I think significantly undercut the prospects of peace.”
Biden, the former vice president, was referring to the Trump administration’s vision for peace released earlier this year that would allow Israel to annex parts of the West Bank. As a result, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he plans to extend Israeli sovereignty to areas of Jewish settlement as early as July 1.
