We are now less than two months away from the 2020 election, and Joe Biden is still refusing to take questions from the press.
He gave a speech on Monday in Delaware in front of a field of tall grass which focused heavily on climate change and criticism of Trump.
When it was over, Biden thanked the people in attendance and then quickly left the scene without taking a single question.
Does he really think this strategy is going to work?

You may be wondering why the media is putting up with this. There is a reason.
Members of the media a terrified of being labeled as having helped the Trump campaign. They are afraid of going too hard on Biden for this reason and are giving him a pass because of it.
Even CNN has admitted this is a problem:
It’s long past time for Joe Biden to start taking questions from the press
Joe Biden held two public events last week introducing California Sen. Kamala Harris as his vice presidential pick. He took zero questions from the press.
In fact, the last time he took more than an occasional shouted question from a member of the media was July 28, according to CNN’s Biden embed Sarah Mucha. And the time before that? Try June 30.
Do the math: The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee has taken questions from the press twice in the past 48 days. That’s not nearly enough.
How is Biden going to run the country if he can’t even handle questions from the media?
He looks weak.
