Biden Is Behind The Curve In His Basement
Biden Is Behind The Curve In His Basement
Believe it or not, there is still an election happening in November. With all that is currently going on, it is hard to remember that. But never fear, Joe Biden is… kinda sorta almost all here!
President Trump has been busy announcing that the “social distancing” guidelines that were issued back on March 16th, with the intention of lasting 15 days, have now been extended out to last until April 30th.
“The modeling estimates that the peak in death rate is likely to hit in two weeks. I will say it again. The peak, the highest point of death rates, remember this, is likely to hit in two weeks… Therefore, we will be extending our guidelines to April 30, to slow the spread,” the president said in the White House Rose Garden.”
Saying his earlier hope that the country could reopen by Easter was “just an aspiration,” Trump added: “We can expect that by June 1, we will be well on our way to recovery” and that “a lot of great things will be happening.”
While the president and his coronavirus task force are busy trying to balance public safety, the medical supply chain needs, and the economic freefall that we are currently living through, Joe Biden is very concerned… about all the “Dreamers” that are currently working in healthcare.
No, this is not a joke. How relieved we all should be to know that in this time of crisis, Biden is deeply concerned about the status of DACA recipients.
And we know, beyond doubt, that we need every trained and qualified person we have fighting this virus — and that includes approximately 27,000 Dreamers who are working in hospitals and health care facilities all across our country thanks to their protections under Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).”
If the Supreme Court upholds President Trump’s termination of DACA in the midst of a national public health emergency, it will leave a gaping hole in our health care system that is liable to cost American lives. Dreamers are deeply ingrained in every aspect of our society, including as doctors and nurses, home health aides, and physicians assistants.”
Hey, Joe, maybe if you were so concerned about the status of DACA recipients, maybe you and President “My Boss” could have, oh, I don’t know, pushed legislation during your time in the White House to give the “Dreamers” legal status, instead of the half-assed executive order scheme that you knew could be undone with a stroke of the pen by a different administration. But you didn’t, so the Supreme Court is poised to rule on the legality of the Trump administration ending the DACA program sometime this summer. How nice to know that in a global pandemic, the “Dreamers” are weighing heavily on Grandpa Joe’s mind.
But that isn’t the only thing bothering Biden right now. He has a challenge for President Trump, and he’s issued it on Twitter, where all modern-day challenges are recorded.
I am issuing this challenge to the President: in the next 48 hours, direct the production and distribution of respirator masks, gloves, protective face shields and gowns to fill every supply request made by a governor to the federal government.
Lives are at stake.

Does Joe Biden step outside his basement occasionally to check and see what color the sky is these days?

Now, do I really think that Biden is keeping up on the news and then writing these posts and tweets himself? Heck no! This is all the work of his campaign, who is desperately trying to keep their candidate even mildly relevant at the moment. The problem is that Biden has largely faded into the background in the middle of this crisis and his poll numbers show an “enthusiasm gap” that could be fatal to the campaign. Contrast that with President Trump, whose every move is being watched, analyzed, and scrutinized at the moment, even as the media loathes the fact that these daily press conferences are giving the president air time each day. Even Biden realizes that he has to be careful about how he talks about Trump, when asked about it with no campaign or social media filter.

Slow Joe is well behind the curve on the current events, and as each day passes with a daily White House briefing – and a massive pause on campaigning for the 2020 election – Biden and his campaign team will find themselves struggling to find any kind of narrative with which to attack Trump. Now, Biden will get tons of media help, and there are far too many unknown variables at play in trying to contain this pandemic, but given the Biden team’s performance up until this point, will the American people buy the line that Grandpa Joe would have done anything differently than Donald Trump?
