Even CNN Is Asking Where's Biden?
Biden has been barely present in the press since the pandemic started. His campaign manager Symone Sanders claims it is because he is trying to abide by CDC guidelines. But when pressed as to where he has been, they claimed he was simply doing local news interviews instead of national. It's not like he is running for a position to lead a nation... But he has been so absent that even CNN has taken note. CNN's Brian Stelter interviewed Biden's Campaign Press Secretary TJ Ducklo, since Biden was once again absent, and asked him where the presidential candidate has been.
“Shouldn’t you be providing Biden to the press more often?” Stelter asked Ducklo.
Ducklo responded by saying that they have had hundreds of event lead by people like Mayor Pete and Senator Harris, before countering that Trump needs to start going onto CNN more.
But that answer didn't satisfy Stelter so he asked again.
“Look what he said to Chris Wallace a couple weeks ago though, Stelter said ‘let Biden sit through an interview like this, he’ll be on the ground crying for mommy.’ Biden did do an interview on MSNBC the next day, so the idea that Biden can’t do an interview is a lie. That’s a lie by Trump. But he’s going to keep lying. He’s going to keep saying it for three more months, so why not prove him wrong every day by having daily press conferences and giving daily interviews?”
Ducklo tried to defend and twist it against Trump but the interview still ended with Stelter saying Biden should be far more present tp the public during this campaign. "I just think that Biden owes the public access all the time, even in the midst of a pandemic.”'
Ducklo's response to why is Biden hiding from the press...
We are 93 days until Election Day, and Americans have a clear choice between a leader who is experienced, compassionate, and can make government work for people — and Donald Trump, who proves everyday he is none of those things.

Ducklo explains pretty quickly as to how things are really going in the campaign. Biden is having everyone else campaign for him and is only doing local stuff. But Stelter also pointed out that Trump has done double the press nationally in the last two months and he is the incumbent. It seems likely that Trump's Senior Campaign Manager Miller was right about Biden, his VP pick is going to be his living will. If he can't handle doing interviews with the press, how is he supposed to put up with the pressures of being president? It seems Biden's presidential campaign is a charade and the Dems are just hoping he can fake it long enough to beat Trump. They are going to have a tough time again this November when Trump crushes Biden with ease.
