Yesterday, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris held a public ceeremony in Delaware (the site of Mr. Biden’s basement home), in which they signed their acceptance to be the Democrat Party’s candidates for President and Vice President.
Not at all surprisingly, the press was invited and many reporters were there.
Not at all surprisingly, they wanted to ask questions of the newly-formalized Democrat Party presidential ticket.
And not at all surprisingly, Biden and Harris were immediately spirited away. No questions.
How clear do they have to make it? Other than the friendliest of friendly interviews, Joe Biden is being hidden from the public.
Why? Because they fear what will come out of his mouth if he tries to talk without a script in front of him, if he is in a position where he has to extemporize. To follow through on a commentary without losing track of what he is saying or descending into semi-coherent babble.
Can they possibly pull this off throughout an entire campaign? I’d have to say the answer is no. Not even if Biden and his people manufacture a reason not to show up at any debates (which I fully expect is going to happen).
Now: when do the media – those folks who are being disallowed from having any meaningful contact with Biden – going to start raising a ruckus about it?
I’ll let you know if/when they do.
