Trump doesn't need rallies. Biden does



The political press was ecstatic about corona virus. Their argument was this ended rallies, which cut off the oxygen to President Donald John Trump's campaign, while allowing Biden to go into hiding, which avoided him making more gaffes and acting like a poor lost dementia patient.

(Insert Judge Judy eyeroll here.)

The American press once again wrote off President Donald John Trump. They learned nothing from the Billy Bush tape, the Russian Collusion hoax, the impeachment, and the sundry other walls-are-closing-in scandals their Democrat sources all assured us would do him in.

Is there a dumber class of people in America than the Washington press corps?

But corona virus would do what the creepy porn lawyer and the rest failed to do. A pandemic would bring the Orange Man down.

Bill Clinton's spokesman Joe Lockhart wrote a piece in CNN, "Trump is failing the leadership test on corona virus," and the baby ducks in the press followed with similar pieces. The Washington Post called its hit piece, "How Trump Lost Control of Corona virus."

Lockhart called for President Donald John Trump to lower his profile and leave the daily briefings to doctors.

On Friday, President Donald John Trump surrounded by titans of industry and the medical experts. There was no doubt as to who was in charge. The stock market soared. People felt confident that while things will get wore, there is no doubt we will survive.

NPR reported, "President Trump on Friday declared that the coronavirus pandemic is a national emergency, a designation that frees up as much as $50 billion in federal assistance to state and local governments overwhelmed by the spread of the virus, and makes it easier to surge medical resources to areas that need them most.

"After weeks of criticism over a shortage of diagnostic tests for the virus, Trump and his officials worked to assure anxious Americans that it would soon be easy for people showing symptoms to get tested, describing a surge in test production, and a website that would direct people to drive-through test sites set up in Walmart parking lots.

"Markets rose as Trump spoke in the White House Rose Garden for more than an hour at the end of a week marked by school closures, sports event cancellations, directives to work from home, and cleared-out store shelves as people rush to stockpile basic goods."

The public did not need press reports. They saw the press conference in its entirety. President Trump got to speak to Americans without a filter -- as a president, not a candidate. And unlike a rally, the press could not ignore the event. The news channels gave him more than an hour of uninterrupted airtime.

Leave it to Donald Trump to turn lemons into lemon meringue pie.

Meanwhile, Joe Biden struggles for relevance.

CNN reported, "Former Vice President Joe Biden's first virtual town hall was a technical calamity as his campaign confronts the same challenges of unexpected remote work that millions of Americans are facing as a result of the corona virus pandemic.

"His campaign's plan was straightforward: Biden had canceled a Chicago rally due to the corona virus outbreak, so he would invite Illinois residents to an online event Friday instead.

"His campaign wanted those who attended to be able to ask him questions, so it added an extra layer of complication to the tried-and-true method of broadcasting onto Facebook Live. Those who signed up to participate could dial in on their phones or stream a video on Zoom, a business video conferencing app. Then the Zoom feed would also be broadcast on Facebook Live to the entire social media world.

"None of it went as planned."

While President Trump took questions for more than an hour from reporters, Biden lasted less than 5 minutes before he abruptly walked away from answering a question from "Maureen."

This is the fellow who is going to save us all from the Zombie Death plague?

President Donald John Trump is large and in charge. Biden's hidin'.

They say events move presidential elections.

Yup.

  3. Joe 'Who Are These Chowderheads?!' Biden will be the ruination of the Democrats for a decade at least.

    You can't run the Demento Pimento as a Presidential candidate without making your party look ludicrous.

    OT; I can't see my wife at the Nursing home for the duration. no outside contact, period. I can call her and deliver supplies, just hope this doesn't go on forever, though I think that this bold move among other, will break the virus' back..

    1. Our best hopes and prayers for her continued recovery. We knew she was in stroke rehab, but hadn't seen you refer to progress. Keep pestering the administration for visitation. If they won't permit you, even with appropriate PPE inside, will they allow her to an external area, wheelchair accessible? "Reasonable accommodation" should come about, if not today, then soon.

  5. "How Trump Lost Control of the Corona Virus" may be the stupidest headline of all time. So we are to believe that a Democrat Prez could "control" a virus that started spreading from the other side of the world? Morons write and read this drivel.

  7. This is outrageous!

    Don't you people realize that if I were President, we could be having empty store shelves without having to have a disease epidemic to get them?

  8. So much for the "democrat hoax", right?

    It was super tricky of the dems to make Trump bungle the response to a pandemic. Good thing his incompetence is everyone else's fault.

  10. While our President is busy being President everybody else has the luxury to treat the virus and the market as a political problem. When the crisis passes, as it will before the election, I just hope the voters remember how uncooperative and even counter-productive the media and the opposition were.

  11. You basically have to watch the "mainstream" news for the comedy. Ben Rhodes was right: they literally know nothing.

  12. It’s true: The mainstream media DID downplay the Swine flu outbreak under Obama
    The difference between swine flu coverage during Obama's first term and coronavirus coverage is insane

  13. People we know who are legitimate journalists and who have been in this business for years are shaking their heads in disbelief. They’ve never seen anything like this, it’s so journalistically unethical.

    And yet, when the god king Obama was in office and he was dealing with the Swine flu (H1N1), the media coverage of that outbreak was nothing compared to what it is now.

    Not even close.

    In all, 61 million Americans were infected; there were 18,000 deaths. But no closures of businesses, no suspension of sports seasons, no bans of public assemblies.

    And that’s probably because the media coverage then was downright sparse compared to what we’re seeing reported and hyped regarding coronavirus.

    1. A positive side effect of the media pandemic should be a flattened curve of new infections.

  14. Slow Joe is hoping he can run the rest of the campaign from an isolation tent or iron lung. No debates with Bernie or PDJT. No contact with voters. His campain will be the only ones disappointed when this madness is over.

  16. During his confused livestream, Joe said he would pay Brazil $20 billion to stop wildfires in the Amazon.

    For that kind of money, he could get twenty of Hunter’s prosecutors fired!

  17. This isn't going to stop Biden rallies. Most bans are for crowds of 50 or more. Attendance at most Biden rallies falls well within that limit.
