Low Key = “Optics so bad, we pretend it was intentional”

Low Key = “Optics so bad, we pretend it was intentional”

When President Trump traveled to Kenosha earlier this week, crowds of cheering supporters lined the motorcade route. But yesterday’s Biden trip was a bit different. In fact, one could even say it was low key.

But for the sycophantic press that follows old Joe like groupies, precious few Kenosha residents bothered to even notice he was there.  The optics of this just 60 days before the election are, to put it mildly, really bad.

Sheesh. All that’s missing is a tumbleweed bouncing across the street to really hammer it home.

So how did Team Biden spin these dreadful optics?

By claiming they intended for the visit to be low key.

Yup. Totally deliberate on the campaign’s part to keep it low key because they wanted to “avoid a circus.”

So, I’m supposed to believe that the Biden campaign urged supporters to not congregate along the motorcade route or show up at the church where Biden held his somnambulant town hall?

Listen, if there had been crowds of people holding “BIDEN/HARRIS” signs, do you think the campaign would’ve been furious?

“Dammit! We wanted this low key! What the hell are these people doing out here cheering for Joe?! WE DIDN’T WANT THEM HERE! What a circus!”

Of course not!

They would’ve played it up big time.

Apparently at one point, a Black Lives Matter march happened past the church. But that was it.

Clearly, in Kenosha anyway, precious few people are burning with Biden Fever.

To be fair, though. Low key is all you can get from Sleepy Joe.

Did you see this clip?

Can’t you just feel the enthusiasm brimming over the edge!  I mean, wow, it’s downright electric!

Not only is Joe barely conscious in this clip, he’s also lying.

If President Trump’s message isn’t being bought by the American people, why did Joe’s lead in Pennsylvania vanish?  Why is it the Biden Team reversed course and went to Kenosha after President Trump’s wildly successful visit? Why are they spending millions of dollars on states that were, at one time, considered a lock for the Democrats?

The reason things are so low key is because 60 days out from November, the Biden campaign has yet to kick into high gear. Mostly because Joe doesn’t have a high gear. He has a low gear, and, from his recent flip-flops, a reverse. But high gear? Nope.

What’s more, voters just aren’t that excited about him.

Sure, the “I’d vote for bread mold over Bad Orange Man” ResistanceLOL people support him.  But even they don’t have anything invested in Biden personally. They’re fired up with Trump Hatred; they’re not fired up for Joe.

Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania…

Trump PA rally crowd ain't low key
Trump overflow crowd. Not low key.

Team Biden didn’t deliberately opt for low key.

Low key is all they have.

And all the “We totally meant for that to happen” excuse-making can’t hide the fact that Biden just isn’t generating any excitement.

Hell, even Hillary generated more enthusiasm than old Joe.

The only hope Biden has is a full court smear campaign directed at Trump by a pliant and supportive media. And, trust me on this, they will happily comply.

Which is exactly why yesterday afternoon, the garbage publication The Atlantic released that anonymously-source hit-piece about Trump in France back in 2018.

Between Pelosi’s SalonGate disaster, Biden’s low key, carefully managed and dull as dishwater Kenosha visit, and Trump’s rise in the polls, the media is all hands on deck to drag the listless, demented old coot over the finish line. And they will smear, slander and lie to do it.

If this was 2008, there’s a good chance the media could get away with it.

But it isn’t 2008. The American news media is so deeply distrusted there is no way they can ever recapture the influence and sway they enjoyed twelve years ago.

It doesn’t help matters that Joe is being led by the hand to endorse and promote the ugliest elements of the Democrat Party – like meeting with the alleged rapist’s virulently anti-Semitic father yesterday in Kenosha.  The Biden campaign really does believe the way to secure black voters is to pander to the Marxists of Black Lives Matter who are burning black communities to the ground.

And because Joe Biden is too decrepit and far gone to know any better, he just does what he’s told and says what’s he’s told to say.

This is not a campaign that is voluntarily choosing to be low key.

This is a campaign that is forced to make excuses for a complete lack of enthusiasm and visible support.

In other words, low key is the hand they’ve been dealt.

As a result, Team Biden has put all their eggs in one basket – namely that the dishonest and virulently biased news media can save their horrible candidate from himself.

    I believe they’re also depending on wide scale election fraud and cheating….. pre-election, during the election and post-election.

    Dianny, your comment about Biden being in reverse reminded me of the campaign ad Joe did with the convertible. Two images from that ad made me laugh out loud. The first was Joe siting in a convertible with the top down WEARING A MASK! The second was when he backed the car into his garage. I know they meant to signal that Joe is still so with it he can back a car into his garage all by himself, but it came across as his campaign is in reverse. Simply awesome optics.

    Biden is masterfully lulling Trump into a false sense of security. He is going to cream tRrump in the debates!

      Biden can’t even remember his own wife’s name and he’s going to defeat Trump at the debates?

      Bless her heart.

      I was wondering if Biden was faking his cognizant decline to avoid prosecution for his involvement in the attempted coup of our President, his involvement in Ukraine corruption and his involvement in Communist China corruption. After watching his performances to date, I have no doubt that he is debilitated. It has been circulated that Joe Biden is a victim of a late stage Syphilis infection. Between the Syphilis Spirochetes making Swiss cheese of his brain and the mercury poisoning from the drugs ingested to combat the infection, he is suffering serious cognitive decline. This information is from CNN “reliable sources” who are trying to keep it away from the public. It is worthy of further investigation.

    I seriously think there are not many Biden supporters and those don’t think his campaign is really a serious one and they aren’t supposed to appear at his events.

    I seriously think they are just expecting someone from the DNC, any day now, to announce Plan B.

      If Biden was the Dems’ Plan A, then any Plan B would have to be a real doozy. For a rational party (I know, I know — Dems), Joe Biden would be somewhere around Plan ZZ.

    Do the Liberal – Socialist – Democrats – Deep State even really want to winning this election?

    I say this because, just about everything they do is either has Political Suicide wrote all over it.
    Or is just the well know Alinsky’s 12 Rules for Radicals being followed to advance generational decay to eventually bring down the USA by a Civil disruption in the next 4 years.

    It rises another question.
    Are all the things we are seeing happen, just a distraction from a greater agenda plan for the next 4+/- years by the LSD’s ?

      I think you and I are seeing something very similar.

      What I’m seeing is a Democrat party that, as a whole, has shifted to the left, but not far or fast enough to suit many of its most radical members, many of whom are in key positions within the party. There still remain many moderate Democrats whose approach to party unity is to “go along to get along”. But this does nothing to accelerate the progressive agenda. The progressives know they could get more accomplished if they didn’t have to appease moderates in order to get their support.

      The progressive wing could break away from the Democrats and form their own party, but we all see how well that has worked for the Green Party and others: they would be spoilers against the Democrats and little else.

      The progressives have no intention of being spoilers. It’s power they want.

      The best way for the progressives to achieve their goals is to drive out all moderates in the Democrat party. The most efficient way to do this is to collapse and dissolve the party entirely. Riots, lockdowns, scandals, racial tensions, the embarrassingly lopsided defeat of a presidential candidate — all these are intended to bring about the collapse. Once that is done, the progressives will quickly form their own party to fill the void left by the Democrat party, completely free of moderates.

    I have seen credible polls that show almost no one is voting for Biden because they think he could do a better job. Most are voting for him because they hate Trump. The amount of fraud they plan to use is enormous.

    That was so low-key I almost fell asleep watching that clip. Keep it up Joe, winter is coming.

    The Atlantic. For the 2004 election they were the magazine with the big article on W’s secret plans to turn America into a theocratic dictatorship.
