The Joe Biden campaign announced on Monday that Joe will not be making any public appearances this week until the final presidential debate on Thursday night.
This is bizarre.
The election is only two weeks away. Any other candidate would be making as many public appearances as possible right now.
Is Joe doing this to avoid questions about the unfolding Ukraine scandal involving his son Hunter?
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Joe Biden Vows to ‘Finish Strong’ From Secluded Basement
Former vice president Joe Biden on Monday vowed to “finish strong” in the final weeks of the 2020 election. That same morning, the Biden campaign released a schedule with no public events before the final presidential debate on Thursday night.
Biden’s so-called “basement strategy” of hiding from public view and refusing to take a position on hot-button issues such as court packing until after the election has been embraced by the Democratic strategists who know him best.
Biden’s cognitive decline and tendency to lash out at reporters exercising their cherished rights under the First Amendment are key factors in the decision to keep the candidate locked away until Election Day.
The basement strategy could also be an effort to prevent Biden from contracting COVID-19. His closest aides presumably don’t think he has the physical and mental prowess of President Donald J. Trump, who easily defeated the disease and as a result enjoys a considerable “experience gap” compared with his opponent.
This is raising a lot of questions.
Is Joe Biden going to skip Thursday’s debate, or show up and answer if he’s “the big guy,” “the Chairman,” and getting a financial piece of Hunter’s international business?
We’re currently on Day Five of Silence, with a lid being called for the next three days!!!

You don’t call a four day lid when there’s 15 days to go unless you’re in meltdown and panic mode because of the China and Ukraine oppo. @JoeBiden is a cornered rat trying to figure out his escape.

If Joe Biden shows up at the debate on Thursday, Trump is probably going to bring this up.
Don’t be surprised if the moderator tries to shut him down.
