Note Biden's hand. He's signaling to someone off camera as he fumbles reading a teleprompter, or worse, cards

Biden's video this morning is pathetic. He can't read the teleprompter. He offers empty calorie, pablum, pollyana talk with no substantive leadership or ideas This is not presidential. It's puppetry and more evidence Biden does not have the chops to run against Trump.
Unlike any other leader speaking to the Covid-19 crisis, Biden allows no questions and includes no experts or advisors (who could be participating digitally from remote locales.)
Biden continues to demonstrate a complete failure to do what a real, strong presidential candidate should do-- be a leader, answer questions, assemble an impressive team of advisors, offer substantive, concrete proposals on how to deal with the situation. Instead, Biden did an embarrassingly fumbling job of reading from a teleprompter a speech written for him.
Biden disappeared almost completely since his first SuperTuesday win, outside of his marathon lie episode in the CNN debate with Bernie Sanders. He gave as an excuse, last week, that he had to set up a broadcast studio-- and that would take at least four days. This is not how a person of presidential calibre operates. A truly presidential leader would assemble a team that could have him up and running within hours. He/she would be visible every day. Personally, I believe Biden is being hidden by his handlers because he has dementia.
I believe that Biden will never be the Democratic presidential candidate.
One possibility is the Democratic electorate wakes up and elects Bernie Sanders. Already, eight states have delayed their primary elections. I expect more states will do so. Ads Biden's abject failure to demonstrate his ability to lead continues, Bernie Sanders will look better and better.
Another possibility is that Biden supporters will keep voting for the Biden shell-- the chimera held up by his DNC handlers. Come July, when there is a digital convention, (do you really think that there will be a crowded convention in Minneapolois then?) Biden's handlers will drop the veil, show Biden to be the dementia patient he is and withdraw him from the running. Then, all the delegates who voted for Biden, plus the superdelegates, will get behind someone the DNC, in cooperation with Hillary Clinton, selects. It could be Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown, NY Governor Andrew Cuomo, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer or, I think less likely, Amy Klobuchar.
I've been reviled as a BernieBro by Biden supporters. They are nasty hypocrites.
I stand by my previous article, Where the F*ck is Biden. The video he released today does not do the job. It is what one would expect if a patient with dementia was being propped up. It is not surprising that no comments are allowed on the youtube video. But when I check the stats, there are more thumbs down than thumbs up for the video.
