Joe Biden is out tonight to speak at the rally for Terry McAuliffe in Virginia.
Now, one has to think that McAuliffe is feeling pretty desperate to have Biden out to stump for him. As we previously reported, McAuliffe acknowledged that Biden was not popular in Virginia and that basically they had to work their way around that fact. So he must be just grasping for anything he can having Biden in to speak at this point.
I can’t imagine Biden helping him at all. Biden doesn’t have any ability to really draw anyone. He surely doesn’t give an inspiring stump speech. If you have him there, you have to be crossing your fingers that he doesn’t say or do anything that’s dumb or takes the focus off of being positive for McAuliffe.
Joe being Joe, it’s almost a given that he’s going to say or do something ridiculous and, of course, he did.

Biden started his remarks at the rally by saying, “It goes without saying how much he appreciates” the current Virginia governor, Ralph “Is he blackface or the Klan” Northam, whom he refers to as his “pal.”
Biden previously had called on Northam to resign saying he had no moral authority to lead. Biden seems to have completely forgotten about that now that to have that position would be inconvenient to holding onto power for the Democrats.
You could see McAuliffe sitting behind Biden, probably holding his breath, hoping Biden would be coherent. No such luck.
Maybe you can figure out what Biden does to this sentence — he just butchers it and then basically gives up on trying for any coherence at the end.
Biden insists people are buying more goods, we’re on the “right track,” he claims.
That’s divorced from reality and people are facing high prices everywhere with wages buying less. McAuliffe is behind Biden thinking, “Is it over yet?”
McAuliffe did manage to find a way to distract from Joe Biden for just a bit with this inexplicable cringe.
But there’s no question that Biden seized back the attention with even greater cringe.
We’ve spoken in the past about how Joe Biden’s wearing of masks follows no logic — that he flouts mandates even while he’s promoting them, as he did about a week ago, not wearing a mask inside an expensive D.C. seafood restaurant. That he’ll wear masks at a podium alone and then plunge into a crowd a Congressional baseball game — people all packed together — and not wear a mask. He did it again at the McAuliffe rally moving into a closely packed group, many without masks. Look closely at what happens as he gets very close to a woman, both of them maskless, at :07 on the video. Yikes.
Biden spews spit on the woman. Gross. This is the second gross thing he’s done just this week. We saw him yesterday with the inconsistent mask wearing — playing mask theater. He then coughed into his hand and was shaking hands with people with the same hand. Where’s his mask? Where’s his social distancing that he lectures us all about? This is just disgusting and the woman looked like she was a little freaked out by it. We talk about masks not preventing smaller particles. But the one thing they sometimes do actually protect against — to some degree — is a big gob of spit like this. But hey, he’s Biden, what are rules to him? Things for peasants to follow. This is a guy who’s for masking little kids all day long, but he does this.
Meanwhile, good job upstaging McAuliffe with this, Joe.
