Camp democrat is in big trouble. Their candidate is not ready for prime time, even after 50 years in public service.

I almost feel sorry for the old geezer, but not for the socialist peoples democrat party.

Chris Wallace calls out Joe Biden for employing 'basement strategy': 'The damnedest thing I've ever seen' - TheBlaze

"I don't understand what's going on here. This is the damnedest thing I've ever seen," Wallace said.

"The Biden campaign isn't putting anybody out. And this just is of a piece with the vice president not doing really any serious interviews, not answering any questions since the rollout," Wallace continued. "He continues to lead with what I'll call the basement strategy."

"I don't think you can hide from now until Election Day. I just don't think it's possible," Wallace said.

Well, I suppose he ought to go on Fox.

Trump rambled, snorted, and bellowed for an entire hour yesterday morning, while the news models occasionally filled the small amount of empty space with obsequious praise.

I listened to about the first fifteen minutes of it. During which Trump drifted back and forth between his usual collection of stock themes and lies. I tuned in a half an hour later, and was surprised to see he was still droning on. At the top of the next hour, he was still at it.

Various polling, voter sentiment regarding Trump, the deep rooted divisions in this nation you yourself champion, independents all over the place given the disaster we are seeing play out over 2020 all say something else.

Wallace is saying exactly what you want to hear, not surprisingly you brought it here pretending you've found gold.

So far, it's a smart strategy, if that's what it is. Just like Trump's birtherism was a smart strategy to capture the racist vote against Obama. And Trump is trying the same strategy now using Kamala Harris as the poster girl in place of Obama to invigorate racist turnout and bring out any latent racism.

Hillary went 4 months without holding a press conference. I think democrats know their candidates can only be damaged, not helped, if they talk to the public. It looks like the democrat plan is to sit tight and allow the polished leftist media propagandists convince the public the democrat candidate is the best there is. That is not true of Trump and was not true of Obama, and has not really been true of other candidates in history before 2016.

Joe Concha: Biden cannot withstand a press conference like Trump'''s with no ground rules | Fox News

“A lot of Democrats will tell you, at least, privately that he does not have the mental acuity that he even had a couple of years ago and this is a candidate that simply would not able to withstand the type of press conferences that the current president has, as far as them going on for an hour-hour and a half, taking questions with multiple outlets with no ground rules attached,” Concha said.

Yeah, it's the damnedest thing. You'd think there was a pandemic out there that would prevent crowds from congregating.

How many press conferences did Trump hold? None. He did ego rallies. That's it.

I would love to see Trump hold a real press conference where he doesn't walk out on the hard questions..... Think we will see that between now and Nov 3rd?

Of course he could always do this before a press conference like Trump did:

With an entire calvary of apologists, sycophants and water carriers in the media, Biden can be safely ensconced in his basement while Trump does the hard work of campaigning and standing before an aggressively hateful press just about every day, answering questions, providing updates and laying out his plan for the next 4 years.

i don't care what he does as long as he wins and kicks the orange precious out of the WH. also, no democrat should go on faux propaganda network, and i recommend not clicking on faux links. it only helps them.

It's like the French hiding behind the Maginot Line in 1939.

As long as they hide and nobody attacks, it works great.

We're looking at a Reagan level landslide for The President.

He does Fox interviews, with Hannity. He did do an interview in which he was asked what's his plan was if re-elected -- usually a softball question. Trump responded with word salad. see one minute in on the below video.

The Marines tell us that wishful thinking isn't a strategy.

Unless the polls are far off, Biden leads by wide margins nationally and in ALL the swing states.

The problem with Trump going out and campaigning trail is that his speeches aren't meaningful, they're just loaded with childish name calling of Democrats, gibberish and scary promises, such as he'll defund Social Security and Medicare by eliminating the payroll tax and stating that he'll run for a third term, against the constitution. That may be enough for his base but it sure doesn't win new voters.

I don't know what planet you're on, but it doesn't appear that that many want another four years of trump's nonsense.

If they trot out ,la for interviews while Joe and his mask are kept hidden how do you that'll be explained?

Again, FoxNews opinion... you really think they will speak well of Biden or Harris?

And this "a lot of Democrats will tell you, at least, privately..." is nonsense.

I'm reminded of Muhammad Ali and his rope-a-dope strategy against George Foreman. Ali took a beating for most of the fight, hardly threw a punch. The strategy worked, even though all the analysts thought Ali was finished. Then, when Foreman had thrown everything he had, Ali came back and pummeled Foreman and took the championship.

I think Biden will come on strong in the later rounds, after Trump melts down in frustration with no punches landing.
