After months of political jokes about him hiding in his basement, Joe Biden looks set to join President Trump in returning to the campaign trail in September. "I’m a tactile politician. I really miss being able to, you know, grab hands, shake hands, you can’t do that now. But I can, in fact, appear beyond virtually, in person, in many of these places. That’s what you’re going to be seeing after Labor Day," the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee said Thursday. Biden, the two-term vice president, listed Arizona, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin as likely destinations during a fundraiser hosted by the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association.

He's a tactile person, you know, he likes to touch people and smell their hair. But he can't do that these days. His compulsion might get the best of his feeble brain out on the trail.

This gives us a hint as to the state of the race. 3 months ago, there was no reason to leave the basement, because he was up by double digits and the election was in the bag. He had even started picking his cabinet. The internal polling must be going south when they have to unleash the gaff-tastic grandpa bad finger and pray that he doesnt do something stupid.

Maybe it's taken this long to train his body double to speak like the Zombie Candidate. Joe's had so much plastic surgery, duplicating that taut, dead fish mug would be fairly easy.

Joe’s like the little light in the refrigerator — once the door is closed, he goes out. Does anyone believe Joe’s been beavering away behind that closed door working on his policies? Nope, he just sits in the dark behind his little desk, next to the mustard, waiting patiently for someone to open up the door again — that’s why he’s lasted this long. Joe’s a pretty dim bulb to begin with; I predict a quick burn-out and a hasty retreat to the cool comfort of the condiment shelf.

This article begs for predictions. Given that it is likely that Biden can not handle the rigors of campaigning, these “appearances” will, of necessity, be long on various speakers spewing vetch about Pres. Trump until Joe gets up and makes some excuse - a weak voice or perhaps a waiting helicopter - to claim he can only speak for a minute. He’ll give “look me over. I’m not a racist or Donald Trump” speeches. Sometime between now and November another politically handy device: a fake-news COVID outbreak or Joe adores basement living (“Come on, man. I love it down there”) or reports that Trump supporters have turned feral and the Secret Service can’t guarantee his safety, or cities and suburbs are unpredictably under attack, etc., will abound as to why Joe has to stay in his basement or only speak in the private homes of average citizens (read Democrat operatives) while Kamala Mattress will still be on the campaign trail or at least some sort of trail making private in-person appearances in hotel bedrooms with people like Lawrence O’Donnell, Brian Stelter, and Rachel Maddow. And his supporters still won’t be able to answer the question, “Why do you support Biden?”

Cornpop! It's jesh, look, Joe's going to be wearing a safe and responsible cough burqa throughout his, and that's, it's come on man, it'll be the 600 million unemployed American women who'll get the jobs on his tour. He'll be shaking hands, well, he wants to grab but, that's, it's, you can't do that now because it's, in fact, he's tactile.

#9 Has it but I'll ratchet it up a notch. They will trot the old carcass out there and reel him back in with a fake case of the COVID. Then he'll be painted as the most vibrant man to ever run for office because even at his age he brushed off the plague like nothing happened. That will be because nothing did happen. And his amazing recovery will be too late foe debates and campaigning.

If and I say if Joe Biden hits the campaign trail it will only last until his big, off color gaff like 'you ain't black' then he gets the Covid virus and it's back to his basement until election. The longer Biden is out its a sure bet he'll have a dog face pony soldier moment or worse maybe tongue kiss a one year old baby girl and it's caught on video. Get ready the popcorn aisles in grocery stores will be as bleak as the toilet paper scare of early 2020.

Biden, who had single digits in the NH primary, thinks his in-person presence is going to make a difference. It won't. The only thing Biden has going for him is that he's not Trump.

I have looked everywhere I can think of this morning (granted, I don't go to liberal sites) for any commentary on the Kamala Harried pre-buttal to the President last night. I can find not one thing. Speaks volumes about how it went, but I'd still like to read something--anything--about what the Joe Biden surrogate said. Please point me in the right direction.

His appearances will be heavily staged and probably taped-recorded so the editors have a few hours to fix everything. Imagine Biden doing a free-wheeling 90 minute press conference? LOL. Any Q&A sessions will be subject to advance screening and carefully typed-out answers plastered on oversized cue cards.

Remember he, and the democrats, are admitting the Electoral College system is the system for electing a President of the United States. Otherwise, why go into "battleground" or "swing" states? Sadly, I expect it will resemble a Weekend at Bernie's type of appearance. But, the more people he comes into contact with while he's out of the basement, the more who will KNOW he's not truly ready for the rigorous demands of being POTUS.

Why stay holed away until after Labor Day? Seriously. That means waiting more than a week for Biden to come out the basement. Meanwhile, Mr. Trump is being President AND actively campaigning. Makes no sense -- unless Biden really isn't up to the job.

If you'll remember, in 2016, Donald Trump did several events A DAY, usually in front of large crowds that waited hours. Mrs. Clinton would maybe do an event every couple of days, usually before a hand-picked audience or if it was a large crowd, usually because some "headliner" entertainer was cajoled into doing a free show to gin up the count (and many left after the entertainment was done, not to stick around for the boring Clinton "listening tour" to follow -- you know, where Hillary talks and you listen). I understand President Trump now has a day job and COVID-19 has reduced the opportunities for large gatherings, but I expect that his events will be as packed as possible and the Biden events will have to give free beer to even draw flies.

He isn't going to be LIVE anywhere. He just said it, I can, in fact, appear beyond virtually. Rehearsed, boring repackaged rat attacks we have all hear for decades. Sprinkle in some current events, some spectacular promises and bingo you have a show. Some poor editors and Deep Fake technicians will be working overtime to make this hospice patient seem alert. Or maybe I'm wrong and Joe will throw off the gloves and jump onto a stage bare chested to beat down a Trump impostor who can't escape. THAT would fulfill all the aggressive bluster this bully has spewed during his lifelong career in the swamp. His violent followers would love to see him play out his threat to fist fight the President, behind the barn or school house or whatever his stupid rant was. Of course what I described is only possible in the tiny mind of Joe as he sits stone still staring out the window with his mouth open. I'm not being cruel, Joe Biden earned all of this. He has been a corrupt lying bully his entire poser life.

‘Fools rush in.” Three centuries after they were written, those words ring as true as ever. And nowhere are they as relevant at present as in the case of Kenosha, Wis. On Sunday, a black man named Jacob Blake was shot seven times by a police officer in Kenosha after Blake refused to comply with his orders. The details of what happened remain murky. We know that the cops were called in response to a complaint by a woman who claimed that Blake had taken her keys; we know that there was a warrant out for Blake that cited sexual assault, trespassing, and disorderly conduct;

Over the past week, Washington, DC has turned into a truly dystopian nightmare. Diners at several area restaurants, including the famous Martin’s Tavern in Georgetown, were accosted by a Black Lives Matter mob that bullied them into raising their fists in solidarity with the movement. Restaurant patrons who refused to comply faced further verbal abuse and harassment. The trend continued outside the White House on Thursday night. Attendees of President Trump’s acceptance speech during the Republican National Convention were thrown to the wolves as they left the event, and were chased and screamed at as they made their way back to their hotels.

Let’s stipulate starting out that Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old from Antioch, Illinois, who has been arrested and charged with murder for shooting two people during the Kenosha riots two nights ago, should not have been present at the scene with a semi-auto rifle. That’s no place for a 17-year-old, even if he is a regular at the gun range. And resorting to vigilantism is a sure path to a breakdown in the rule of law and perhaps even open civil war. We’ll hold off a recitation of Lincoln’ Lyceum Address on this point for some other time, as well as scoring the appalling negligence of Democratic political leaders in Wisconsin.

Andrew Sullivan’s take on the danger posed to Dems by chaos in the streets is worth a read.
