On Wednesday, former Vice President Joe Biden (D-DE) declared that it’s time for the Democratic primary to come to a close and signaled a disinterest in participating in a remaining debate against Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
“My focus is just dealing with this crisis right now,” Biden said at a virtual press conference. “I haven’t thought about any more debates. I think we’ve had enough debates. I think we should get on with this.”
It sounds to me like Joe is tired of being made to look the fool against his final opponent who has the legal right to that final debate, and is playing the tough guy role again. He was never really any good at that role.
I can actually see the Biden campaign floating the idea that there should be no presidential general election debates, “… because we all know how Trump thinks. Orange Man bad!”
The remarks came only a day after the Sanders campaign echoed its intention to take part in the 12th primary debate. Biden and Sanders are the only remaining candidates still running.
“If there is a debate in April, he plans to be there,” Sanders spokesman Mike Casca said.
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) initially scheduled 12 debates with 11 of them already in the can at this time. No word yet from the DNC on whether or not the final debate continues to be in the works.
The DTMNBN has taken Biden and Sanders off the campaign trail and a number of other states have postponed their primary elections.
Biden has opened up what many view as an insurmountable lead in delegates and a few of Biden’s allies are looking forward to Sanders conceding defeat and drop out of the race.
The question now is, does Sanders have enough time to wait and see of the Democratic Party will finally acknowledge that Biden has lost his ever-loving mind to dementia and has no business wanting to run the country? Certainly his family doesn’t care about his health, otherwise they would never let him continue this way. We see his wife casually walking up to a podium to comfort the guy who looks like a old drunk guy who wandered onto the stage and is asking where’s the bathroom.
Here’s an entire press briefing he gave recently. This was not doctored at all.
Lots of people are asking, #WhereIsJoeBiden?

If you sincerely want that man as the president of the United States, then you suffer from Trump Derangement System at a Level 7, which is the highest known form of the mental disorder.
The man is a child of God, but for goodness’ sake he doesn’t have the mental acuity necessary to be the Commander-in-Chief.
Sanders has stated he’s “assessing” his way forward. The Vermont senator has pulled back on his attacks in opposition to Biden and has effectively stopped fundraising.
As an alternative, Sanders has been holding round table events to deal with the federal government response to the DTMNBN whereas utilizing his fundraising e-mail list to boost cash for charities that help those impacted by the virus.
