Someone needs to explain to Joe Biden that he's the presumptive Democratic nominee, not the presumptive next president. The Democratic candidate is reportedly assembling a White House transition team with over six months to go before the general election.
During a virtual fundraising event, Biden announced his campaign has already begun building a transition team, and the candidate would not rule out announcing cabinet nominees before November's election.
"Sounds presumptuous," Biden acknowledged. "I don't want to say we started thinking about it a month ago -- we did -- because that sounds like I was certain this was going to happen, that I would be the nominee. I don't want it to sound like that, but it has to happen and that's why the transition team is already being put together."
While Biden refused to identify who exactly is heading up this transition team, the candidate promised the group will consist of "first rate" individuals.
With Biden's cognitive abilities rapidly deteriorating, the campaign is likely planning to reassure voters by surrounding the candidate with a strong team of individuals who will be the real people running the country should Biden win in November.
During a CNN Town Hall event on Thursday, Biden, 77, stumbled repeatedly as he tried to put together a sentence, even as the candidate appeared to be reading from prepared notes.
"Um, you know, there's a uh, during World War Two, uh, you know, where Roosevelt came up with a thing that uh, you know, was totally different than a, than the, the, it's called, he's called it a, you know, the World War Two, he had the World, the War Production Board," the candidate said.
And this is Biden fully rested, having spent the last several weeks at home, making only a handful of appearances, like the virtual town hall event Biden held in March which was a complete train wreck.
The growing number of gaffes is too large to document here. But with the toughest months of the campaign still ahead of him, it doesn't bode well for Biden that his cognitive abilities are already failing before the candidate comes face-to-face with President Trump.
Obama’s Transition Team for The Wookiee ,LOL
Doesnt he need to setup a Senate transition team?
Secretary of Chin Wiping, Secretary of Gaffe Backwalking....
You mean the thing that said all this for a damn flag.
“”””Doesnt he need to setup a Senate transition team?”””
The Senate seat he recently won in North South Carolina is on hold due to the china flu or something.
Total misdirection, as Creepy Joe knows. He will not be the nominee. Creepy is doing as he is told, and he is fine with that. He will be let off the hook by convention time, to his eternal relief.
The day by day obviousness is very amusing and very effective.
this recent meltdown by Senile Joe was scary... he couldn’t answer a direct question about the President’s plan... the phony Dr Gupta was in shock.
Senile Joe and the DNC need to raise bug money quickly, tough to do in a virtual environment... gaffe filled appearances do not build enthusiasm or raise bucks
Didn’t Obama do similar things? It’s a Democrat thing, act like you are in charge, and eventually you will be...
that is fantastic.
we better get out and vote....
This “team” generator is too obvious. It is like putting a “kick me” sign on someone’s back. Despising leftists, however warranted, is no reason to disdain their manipulative and fabricated cleverness.
Creepy will NOT be the nominee, as intended.
That made my snort pop up my nose! Worth it!
Isn't that a sign of senility, delusion, or something else indicative of a lost mind?
Every candidate begins planning their administration as soon as they have the nomination locked up. Every one except Trump.
