For the ninth day this month, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's campaign has "put a lid" on his campaign events. Meaning, he won't be talking to the press. According to his team, that's because he's knee deep in debate prep.
Observers, including top Republicans and members of President Trump's re-election campaign, aren't buying their excuse.
This is Biden's 6th 9AM lid since he got a traveling press pool 3 weeks ago, and he said yesterday he hadn't even started debate prep.— Matt Whitlock (@mattdizwhitlock) September 24, 2020
So seems very fair to point out how absurd this is 40 days out. https://t.co/a2whOr0ek8
Joe Biden is doing debate prep today. Understandable. Biden is a seasoned debater.— Jake Schneider (@jacobkschneider) September 24, 2020
But what was his excuse on 9/1, 9/5, 9/6, 9/8, 9/10, 9/12, 9/19, and 9/22, all days he called a "lid" before noon? https://t.co/hYlJixPWOm
People. Biden has been in politics for over 4 decades and a VP for almost a decade. There is no discernible reason why he’s only able to be publicly cogent every third day. This is not debate prep. https://t.co/hvv0SUkeUD— Erielle Davidson (@politicalelle) September 24, 2020
Meanwhile, President Trump is holding another Great American Comeback Rally tonight in Jacksonville, Florida. It'll be an eventful weekend for him too. On Saturday he'll be announcing his nominee for the Supreme Court, directly followed by another rally. He took the opportunity on Thursday morning to call his opponent "low energy."
Sleepy Joe Biden just closed down his campaign for the day (Again). Wants to rest! He is a very LOW ENERGY INDIVIDUAL, and our Country cannot make it in these exciting, but complex and competitive times, with a Low Energy President !!!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 24, 2020
