On Tuesday, at 9:22 a.m., reporters covering the Joe Biden campaign were told that there would be no more events or newsmaking to issue forth from Team Biden for the rest of the day.
The same thing happened on Saturday. At 8:35 a.m. on Sept. 19, Team Biden put a “lid” on that campaign day.
In fact, the lid has come down before noon no less than eight times this month. That would be 36 percent of the campaign days in the month of September in which the Biden campaign has canceled its activities before lunchtime.
On Sunday, Joe Biden said that 200 million Americans had died from COVID-19, which would make the virus twice as deadly as the Black Plague in Europe was in less than 1 percent of the time. As there are some 330 million or so Americans, many of our readers have apparently died of COVID-19 and weren’t aware of that fact.
Then on Monday, Biden answered a question about socialism in the Democrat Party by trashing Bernie Sanders. “I beat the socialist,” he said, which probably didn’t inspire his Hard Left base. This, along with catching a question about the Democrats’ “new” idea of packing the Supreme Court in which Biden’s answer was that he would refuse to answer the question because then it would be a distraction from what a terrible guy Donald Trump is.
Joe Biden’s campaign is shutting him down out of fear that he’s in such bad shape that he physically and mentally can’t perform at the level of a presidential nominee.
This is hardly a controversial theory. It’s obvious. When Biden killed off 200 million Americans with COVID-19 on Sunday, it was the second time he’d made such a gaffe.

Gaffes are nothing new for Biden, but his ability to produce them seems to be accelerating. McKay writes of the campaign’s efforts to hide the candidate (abridged):At The American Spectator, Scott McKay explains why the Biden campaign is desperate to hide the former Vice President from the American public. Seemingly every time the candidate opens his mouth, he puts his foot in it.
