Joe Biden’s Livestreams Have Been a Disaster
Biden gestures to someone off screen at one point, seemingly unaware that we can see his hands.
Joe Biden has been struggling for visibility lately. The Coronavirus crisis has relegated him to the sidelines as Trump takes front and center on television, sometimes for hours a day.
Biden has turned to live streaming addresses. It has not gone well.
I’m including some clips below. As you’ll see, Biden appears tired, and at times unaware of what he is doing.
It’s very telling that the media is being careful not to criticize his efforts.
Don Gonyea writes at National Public Radio:
Biden Admonishes Trump In New Crisis Campaign Approach
Former Vice President Joe Biden, the leading Democratic candidate for president, called for a far more urgent and better coordinated response to the coronavirus pandemic from the White House, in his first remarks of a new effort to reach voters while the campaign is essentially on hold.
Speaking via livestream from his home in Delaware, Biden said President Trump was slow to recognize and respond to the health crisis, and that the president continues to show a lack of understanding of what needs to be done to address the rapid spread of the virus across the U.S.
“President Trump is not to blame for the coronavirus,” Biden said, adding that the president does bear responsibility for the response. “I along with every other American hope he steps up to get this right,” Biden said. He also said that “this isn’t about politics,” given how much is at stake.
Biden noted that the president has likened this to war and describes himself as a “wartime president.” “Then start to act like one,” Biden admonished.
Now compare the seriousness of that report with Joe’s performance. In this clip, Biden gestures to someone off-screen at one point, seemingly unaware that we can see his hands.
This set is too mixed up. You don’t put a lectern in a library set.

He seems incapable of holding a train of thought.

It’s a good thing for Biden that Saturday Night Live has temporarily ceased operations. Not even they could spin this as a positive for Joe.
When Biden isn’t doing these live streams, he is making media appearances. They are not going any better.
In the history of live television interviews there has never been one this awkward, not ever. ? pic.twitter.com/8S6bChlaTO

Is it any wonder why Bernie Sanders is still hanging around?
NBC News reports:
Sanders camp signals his presidential campaign will go on
Lacking a meaningful path to the Democratic nomination at a moment when the coronavirus crisis is gripping Washington and the country, Bernie Sanders stepped back from actively campaigning for president over the past week, leading some Democrats to wonder whether he would soon leave the race altogether.
But Tuesday, Sanders appeared to signal anew that he is in the race for the long haul: His campaign announced a full organizing effort ahead of New York’s scheduled April 28 primary, and a spokesman said he would participate in a debate with former Vice President Joe Biden — if there is one.
“Bernie Sanders is still a candidate for the Democratic nomination,” senior adviser Jeff Weaver told NBC News on Tuesday in response to a question about the New York efforts. “One of the things that means is working to secure votes in future contests.”
Bernie’s people must be just waiting for Biden to implode.

You would think knowing how gaff-prone he is they would do this so it could be edited.
I just got an urgent text from Joe Biden!
”Guys don’t be fooled! I was told a mask and gloves is enough to go to the store, but when I got there people were also wearing pants and shirts”
“In Highly Controlled Interviews With Very Friendly Corporate Media Yesterday, Joe Biden Proved to the World That He Has Advanced Dementia and Under No Circumstances Can Be Permitted to Be “President ,” Even if In Name Only
And he’s sickly and physically degenerated to boot.”
Ace of Spades
I take comfort in the knowledge that Joe Biden is out there working tirelessly, around the clock, to develop a Vaccine for Polio.
He was inspired by watching FDR give his fireside chats on color TV back in the Roaring 20’s
Final Brick in the Wall CONFIRMING the DNC never planned on Biden being their REAL NOM, but just used Biden to Cheat Bernie a 2nd Time.

Are you sure you’re not mixing him up with the late Ted “The Swimmer” Kennedy?
It’s not ‘gaffes’ – he’s literally lost his mind. Whatever has caused it has probably been going on for some time.
Could be dementia, could be small stroke, or a combination thereof.
In any event, it’s good to be rid of him. Jail would be better. But then, we have another sessions as AG.
Extremely sad to watch Biden. He is definitely not capable of being President. Where is his family? They need to put an end to this. Joe needs 24/7 care.
Governor Charlie Parker. Uh-huh.
Oh that Joe. “Guardian of the Nuclear Football” material, for sure.
The real worry Tom, is ol’ Joe confusing the Nuke button with his Life Alert button. He has a “help I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” moment and countries get nuked!
The Bird still lives!
I like Joe! I love Joe! He’s a comedic parody gold mine! He does so much crazy stuff writing must stop else wise every song would be 30+ verses long.
(TTTO: My Favorite Things)
When his teeth drop, and his veins pop
And the prompter is off
Joe can’t remember the simplest things
Like covering up his cough
Hunter and Ukraine that talk is unwelcome
Stall baby mama who’s after his income
Hollywood home and Porsche for a ride
One of the many things Joe likes to hide
Goofs to the left of him flubs to the right
Joe’s bulb is flickering turn out the lights
The Dems want to kill us with millions of laughs
Here are a few of my favorite gaffes
Asked by a voter his stance about hand guns
Out come the fangs and emotional end runs
His handlers panic and whisk Joe away
His gaffe now and ad by the N R A
Remember when the Democrats had a reputation as the media-savvy party?
Ever since Trump got elected the Dems have given us so many tone-deaf, clueless, clownish performances I have to wonder if it’s deliberate.
But no, I think we’re seeing them as they really are.
If you make the assumption that his staff aren’t idiots, you have to start thinking at a deeper level here. They must know that these things would be and are disasters, but they’re doing it anyway. They could instead be pre-filming Q&A’s and editing them before release to eliminate the embarrassing parts.
The fact that they are not doing that leads me to conclude that they are intentionally making him look like a fool (or more of one). My conclusion is that his people know full well that he should not be the nominee and are sabotaging him intentionally. They need everyone at the convention to understand he’s a disaster, and should pick someone else.
Word on the street is they will run some dark horse.
Biden’s got some competition.

Supposedly Andrew Cuomo is setting himself up to be the surprise nominee.
Just finished posited on this very thing.
Why it will be Andrew Cuomo
I’m hearing that from a lot of people.
But I’ll bet the Clinton machine is warming up to take him down just like all the others. Just watch.
That would cause a Dem civil war for sure.
Biden is the DNC’s version of Konstantin Chernenko. I guess Bernie hopes he will be Mikail Gorbachev.
“[Biden] also said that ‘this isn’t about politics,’ given how much is at stake.
Apparently Biden’s not on Nancy’s speed-dial.
Sanders is waiting for Joe to push up Daisies and win the convention on Biden’s DNF.
Watching both Bernie and Biden go at it this winter, the more I came to believe at some point neither or going to be backed for the Nov. general election. Bernie is no more than back ground noise to Bidens run sponsored by the backing of the DNC and MSM collusion and I am more convinced than ever that in one way or the other, the Democrats are going to run Andrew Cuomo. He made overtures in 2012 to his aspirations for the job, though the DNC had already was all in for Obama. In the space of this time, Cuomo who is in his 2nd 6 yr. term in office, has amassed a war chest to date of +$12 million. It is slated that it is for 2023 for his run ted for a 3rd term which hasn’t been seen in NY since Rockefeller. Known to never miss an advantage of a crisis, MSM who are in cahoots with the DNC, have been covering Cuomo in New York with direct parallels of his actions with that of President Trump. The intent is to position him with early coverage measuring him and touting his credentials on the crisis in NYC to that of President at a national and global level. Don’t know the details of how the DNC and delegates are going to pull this off, but they will get rid of Biden as easily as they got rid Bernie for Hillary. The DNC is going to run Andrew Cuomo up against Donald Trump.
Reporter To Biden: The American People See Trump ‘As A Stronger Leader Than You Have Been Characterizing Him’…
He’s become a cardboard cut-out. It’s very rewarding to see him humiliated, after so many years of corruption and treason by biden.
Shy of his being prosecuted, this humiliation might be the best we can do.
Right, AG Barr? (Barr 54, where are you?)
Joe Biden is like going into the woods at night with a flashlight with a dying battery.
Can SNL come up with a parody worse than reality?
