While we’ve witnessed many Biden campaign rallies that just look abandoned and creepy, this recent event takes the cake. While in Novi, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit, Joe Biden gave a rather poor speech with an enormous teleprompter and a small crowd.
Joe Biden has been ridiculed many times in the past for his apparent dependence on a teleprompter during campaign speeches. During one of his most recent drive-in rallies in Michigan, a once-thriving city of the auto industry, someone recorded just how much the Democratic nominee needs that teleprompter to keep going. The event looks abnormally staged while Biden stands there clueless reading off the screen with about 20 people in the crowd.
Biden used his time on stage to accuse President Trump of pandering to the right and failing to condemn white supremacy, despite the President repeatedly doing so. He then repeated claims that the President was involved in the attempted kidnapping of Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer by extremist militias who were angry about the state’s coronavirus lockdown. These claims were false after videos surfaced from one of the militia members talking about his hate for the President and all government.
President Trump condemned the kidnapping scheme in a series of tweets but also slammed Democrats for condoning anarchists, rioters, and looters.
“Governor Whitmer of Michigan has done a terrible job. She locked down her state for everyone, except her husband’s boating activities. The Federal Government provided tremendous help to the Great People of Michigan. My Justice Department and Federal Law Enforcement announced today that they foiled a dangerous plot against the Governor of Michigan. Rather than say thank you, she calls me a White Supremacist—while Biden and Democrats refuse to condemn Antifa, Anarchists, Looters, and Mobs that burn down Democrat run cities,” President Trump tweeted.
Biden continued reading the speech to an extremely small crowd, appearing clueless and dazed. Comments continued to surface regarding the size of the event, despite the Biden team saying they have been “deliberately” focusing on smaller gatherings as a precaution against the spread of the coronavirus. One of his previous rallies, two weeks ago in Toledo, Ohio, only had about 30 cars turn up for a drive-in event for the United Auto Workers union.
During the event, car horns blared and you could barely hear Biden talk at all. He finished yelling whatever the teleprompter told him, saluted the air, then slowly walked off the stage.
Biden appeared to be setting the bar pretty low, but as another Twitter user said, “the only thing massive about Biden’s rally must have been his teleprompter because no one has yet to show a picture of the crowd size.” It’s only another reflection of the fact that America does not want a Biden presidency. What else would the crowd size tell us?
