Joe Biden is not going to hold any rallies for his presidential campaign.
They are claiming this is because of the Coronavirus pandemic, but could it really be about something else?
Could it be because Joe couldn’t fill a venue and because he doesn’t have the energy to stand for that long?
AFP reports, via Yahoo News:
Biden says will not hold campaign rallies due to pandemic
US Democrat Joe Biden said Tuesday he will not hold presidential campaign rallies during the coronavirus pandemic, an extraordinary declaration that stands in stark contrast with Donald Trump who has already held large campaign gatherings.
“This is the most unusual campaign I think in modern history,” the former vice president said during a question-and-answer session with reporters in Delaware to discuss the pandemic and ways to mitigate its spread.
“I’m going to follow the doc’s orders — not just for me but for the country — and that means that I am not going to be holding rallies,” said Biden, adding he has not yet been tested for COVID-19.
It was not clear if Biden, 77, was referring to a personal physician who has recommended he stay off the trail out of health concerns for him and attendees, or the US government guidelines that urge Americans to not participate in events where large crowds gather.
And he did not say whether his decision could change pending an improvement in mitigation efforts in the coming months.
The Coronavirus seems like an excuse, doesn’t it?

Some people will vote for Biden as a vote against Trump, but no one is excited about Biden as a candidate.
