You know, I think President Trump might want to rechristen Sleepy Joe with a new nickname: No-Show Joe
Where in the world is Joe Biden?
While all the other candidates swarm the state of Iowa this weekend, Joe is a no-show. Sure, he plans to turn up later this week. You know, on his own good time.
No-Show Joe has been taking it slow – campaigning sparingly and avoiding voters.
Who’s running his campaign anyway? The same people who advised Hillary to make one campaign appearance for every seven Donald Trump held? It got so bad in 2016, we were all left wondering where the hell is Hillary Clinton?
No-Show Joe seems to be using the “non-campaigning” campaign strategy.
And it doesn’t make sense to me.
Unlike Warren, Harris, Buttigieg, Gillibrand, Booker, Moulton and the rest of the clown car, Biden doesn’t have a job he’s neglecting in order to run. In fact, like slacker Beto, Joe really has oodles of time to hit the campaign trail, rub shoulders with voters (literally) and get out there among the people.
He avoided the far-Left California Democrat convention last week.
And now is steering clear of Iowa while the rest of the competition campaigns this weekend — some in the most painfully embarrassing ways.
She manages to come off even more unlikable and fake than Hillary… amazing https://t.co/JbVHgRV5ga— Bob Malak (@bob_malak) June 8, 2019
Yeah. I really don’t see No-Show Joe boozing it up in a gay bar. But still. Why isn’t he out there pressing the flesh (literally)?
He’s running for the Democrat nomination, for Pete’s sake.
But just like Hillary before him, No-Show Joe can’t seem to be bothered to actually, you know, work for it.
Now, it could be that the folks running No-Show Joe’s campaign figure the only way to minimize Biden’s inevitable embarrassing gaffes is to simply keep him tucked away somewhere – only bringing him out when the environment is completely controlled.
Or possibly, like with Hillary Clinton, they know the more people are exposed to Biden, the less they like him. So they’re limiting his public appearances to keep his poll numbers up.
Or maybe, like Hillary Clinton before him, No-Show Joe figures he has the nomination in the bag, so why bother with that pesky campaigning thing?
Then again, maybe No-Show Joe is just too damn old to keep pace.
And while he’s napping or swimming naked in his pool, the other candidates are out there working the crowds. As a result, Sanders, Warren, Buttigieg, and even Harris are nipping at his heels.
Whatever the reason, the so-called Frontrunner seems to have a bad case of the Hillary Clintons.
Problem is, this isn’t 2016 when the DNC scared people out of running in order to prop Hillary up. And taking this No-Show page out of Hillary’s campaign playbook this time around isn’t going to end well for Joe.
Then again, it didn’t end well for Hillary either.
