Skip to comments.Biden Goes Virtual: Amid Corona Fears Joe Will Stay In The Bunker
Posted on 03/12/2020 8:19:22 PM PDT by Helicondelta
Former Vice President Joe Biden will hold virtual town hall and rally events, his campaign told reporters late Wednesday, in lieu of holding massive rallies in places like Florida and Illinois.
The campaign cited ongoing concerns about coronavirus, particularly in Illinois, which has at least 25 confirmed cases of the illness.
Biden had events scheduled in Chicago and Orlando but his campaign said that after consulting with officials, the former vice president would not hold large-scale events in the states, according to MSN. He also canceled two fundraisers in Chicago
The wave of fear over coronavirus may come as a benefit to the Biden campaign, which appears to be struggling with live events. The gaffe-prone Biden has been more gaffe-prone than usual of late and his campaign has scaled back his speeches and appearances, often limiting his remarks to less than ten minutes, likely to limit Bidens ability to commit personal faux pas.
At 77 years old, Biden is well within the demographic most vulnerable to coronavirus and coronavirus-associated complications.
The Democratic National Committee announced earlier this week that the Democratic presidential debate, which will be held Sunday in Phoenix, Arizona, will not have a live studio audience and, instead, the candidates will answer questions from constituents over video chat.

But will he curtail his sniffin’ and gropin’, too?
You can bet his handlers are happy about this!
Good excuse to Hide the Geezer. Virtual Creepy Joe will be CGI.
Now that is the funniest thing I've read in years. When has he ever had a massive rally?
Running around in his birthday suit
This keeps him from confronting dog faced pony soldiers and threatening them and hold the cursing and groping down (or at least off camera).
How convenient for him.
I never thought Joe had ‘massive’ rallies to even be worried about. Didn’t he have that one of about 11 pepole in someone’s living room, and there were like 5-8 chairs empty still?
He’s going to be an old Max Headroom.
Text “JOE” to 3...0...3,3,...0
Massive?? Are you Schiffting me? Biden is full of Shifftz. I can draw bigger crowds mooning people on interstate bridges in Nebraska. :)
I doubt this will happen ... but this is a perfect opportunity to Trump to draw a clear contrast between him and Rats. Trump could have live rallies. Leave the decision up to the PEOPLE as to whether to come or not. He can easily insulate himself from the virus as he would be up on the stage and separate from the crowd. Healthy young people have little to fear in going. Older people like me, with health issues, should use commonsense and not go. But like I said, I doubt this will happen.
WHO WAS THE SENATOR HIDING UNDER HIS DESK ON 911?
Pay no attention to the puppetmaster behind the curtain
So he can drool and babble in private.
Virtual town hall meeting and rallies?
Is this so someone off camera can tell this idiot what to say?
Joe’s recent actions remind me of the last few years of my father’s life.
Eventually he didn’t know who I was.
