Joe Biden should be resting out his golden years in the cushy retirement his dubiously aquired wealth would afford him, not running for president of the United States. From Miranda Devine at nypost.com:
Has there been a worse candidate in history than Joe Biden?
When this election is over, the books revealing what went on backstage will be illuminating.
But the truth is there for anyone with eyes to see.
Take Biden’s car rally in Flint, Mich., Saturday, with a star-power assist from Barack Obama.
Awkward barely covers it.
Obama, effortlessly cool, gave a warmup speech to the assembled cars before ramping up to a dramatic introduction: “My friend, the next president of the United States of America: Joe Biden!”
Moments ticked by, but there was no sign of the candidate.
“Joe Biden!” Obama repeated, a little less confidently. But still no show.
Obama tried a third time: “Joe Biden!”
Biden at last emerged from a nearby building and did a pantomime slow jog to the stage.
The worst part came later.
After Biden had shouted his way through a short teleprompter speech, Obama came back onstage, perhaps to escort him off, because Biden did not seem to know where he was.
Obama mimed an elbow pump with his former VP to signal they should leave the stage and then quietly whispered to him, after which it dawned on Biden he’d forgotten his mask, not for the first time. When your entire campaign is about mask-shaming Trump supporters, it’s not a forgivable lapse.
Poor Biden looked like a chastened schoolboy as he fumbled through his folder and all his pockets looking for that pesky piece of cloth.
