Joe Biden has been a train wreck for weeks now.
It seems like every single time he appears in public, he promptly sticks his foot in his mouth. His allies are starting to get nervous and have come up with a plan to deal with the problem.
They’re going to limit his time in public.
The Hill reports:
Biden allies float scaling back events to limit gaffes
Allies to Joe Biden have been floating the idea of altering the former vice president’s schedule in an effort to reduce the gaffes he has made in recent days.
The allies, growing increasingly nervous about Biden’s verbal flubs, have said it’s an approach that’s been suggested to campaign officials on the heels of the former vice president’s stumbles.
Biden has a tendency to make the blunders late in the day, his allies say, particularly after a long swing on the road, like he had last week in Iowa. They say something needs to be done to give the candidate more down time as the campaign intensifies in the fall.
“He needs to be a strong force on the campaign trail, but he also has to pace himself,” said one ally who has talked to members of the campaign team and others in the broader Biden World about how to move forward.
Lots of people have noticed that there’s something very familiar about this strategy.
Imagine running with "I'm the ELECTABLE one" as your lone campaign message while simultaneously being so unlikable that your main campaign strategy is to hide

Hiding from the public while running for POTUS didn't work for Gam-Gam

If Democrats nominate him, he will be a disaster for them.
