If you followed the mainstream media’s coverage of the Biden/Harris rollover, you might have thought it was a smooth operation.
Turns out, there were plenty of rough edges to the whole charade.
First out, it doesn’t seem like there were a lot of people eager to attend:

Then there were technical problems:
CNN reports “power out, no air conditioning at Biden-Harris event site.” “Probably not the best roll out.”

Some there were willing to point out how unbiased the media appeared:
So pathetic. The press corps is not even hiding the fact that they’re playing for the same team. And Biden and Harris are still too afraid to take questions?

From all appearances, the big announcement of Biden’s running mate was handled much like a neighborhood bake sale gone wrong.
Few people attended. There were many technical problems. And the media refused to even ask a single question.
Keep in mind: these folks want to run the country! Yet they didn’t even let in one media person who would ask a probing question.
How about, “Kamala, why are you know running with a man you heavily criticized just a few months ago?”
Or, “Biden, why did you pick Harris over many other candidates?”
We can go on.
Imagine if a Trump event was handled this poorly? Team Trump gets slammed by the media when a small thing goes array.
(When Trump’s Tulsa rally had problems, that’s all the media talked about. They ignored the fact that thousands attended and millions watched online.)
But this “major moment” in the Biden campaign was more than messy. And it was particularly surprising that few people bothered to attend, compared to a Trump event.
Even when Trump just drives by a city, people line up for miles to cheer him on. In the absence of his famous rallies, Americans are finding creative ways to show support.
It seems like Democrats aren’t missing Biden events one bit.
Do you think Biden has a chance against Trump after seeing this?
- Details are emerging exposing the ugly side of the Biden/Harris announcement.
- Few people attended, there were technical problems, and the press asked no questions.
- The event appeared poorly planned and underwhelming.
