Keep him locked in the basement so the public doesn't figure out he can't even form a sentance I’m sure this has nothing to do with the police stating they wouldn’t assist with the DNC security.... Because he’s too incompetent to do it in person. He’s too spaced out on coke What a joke. Who votes for this nonsense 😂

Washington, DC is too dangerous for his health. Well it shows that Joe Biden has concern for his flower’s catching the Virus. While Trump does not care for his flowers catch the Virus or NOT In his basement with an earpiece in his ear to feed him the speech. JoyAnnReid Meanwhile... 💡 He has been a virtual candidate, and would be a virtual President, if he wins.

Thank VP Biden for being a leader in this pandemic. africaupdates ...Joe Biden to accept the Democratic nomination....Does He Know For Which Seat?..Senate Or Presidential?....YES...Your Answer is as good as Mine..🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 If he’s too fragile to fly on a private plane and make a speech or if he’s so Covid high risk, he should not run for ANY political office Step down .

Joe wake up and see 🇺🇸 on🔥 because democrats are supporting radical anarchists. 100s of delegates have decided not to vote for him if he doesn’t accept Medicare for All platform. Where’s your article? Biden isn't the real candidate. It's whoever has the puppet strings and keys to the basement he dwells in. ElderAbuse

He’s to afraid to do a long speech or a presidential debate ! Pathetic. He wants to leader of the free world, but he’s too afraid of a .26% fatal flu bug to risk leaving his house? So Biden can be virtually elected president, but real President will be Mr Trump. Is this correct? START THE DEBATES SEPTEMBER 6

Good, stay safe Biden. Don't let anyone goad you into being careless. Stay safe Mr. President! ProtectBidenAtAllCosts ASafeBidenForASafeDemocracy I Truly Believe It Would Better For The Biden Campaign To Have The Convention Virtually, Than To Travel. Very Safe and Smart. That is the way it should happen 👏

Good on you Joe! A candidate who listens to scientists and medical professionals and sets an example for for all. Poor Demented Joe 😢😢😢😢😢😢😢 His geese will fly in live with masks , only removing them if landing in a peaceful burning city. I hope this spells the end of those ridiculous back-slapping clown fests with their good ol' boy insider trading, freak shows. Good riddance to the rallies. Their time is past.

Simply another part of the trick for cognitively challenged JoeBiden to avoid debating realDonaldTrump. Need to ensure (no pun) he won’t go off teleprompter. BillKristol ByronYork charliekirk11 CharlesHurt Smart! Well I hope Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and the Bernie Bros show up to express their feelings.

JoyAnnReid There are 12 days left before the Democratic Convention. I support Biden but I’m getting annoyed by this nonsense about his running mate. Just name the person, let us get familiar with the ticket! This is starting to feel like a preview of The Apprentice 🛑 JoyAnnReid There shouldn’t be any conventions. We don’t want to see a bunch of politicians high fiving themselves while 155,000 families are in mourning. If you don’t know who you’re voting for, you’ve been in a coma for the last 4 years.

shomaristone Um, if Biden will be a no-show for his own party's nomination there's little reason for other dems to attend. Let them ALL attend 'virtually'... the savings alone would finance another protest of some kind. Why save their $ for things that help voters. Dems are on the run. Their only hope is a virtual Biden and the China virus. He will instruct black Americans how to vote via the big screen.

Biden's puppeteers to accept nomination. Does anyone really think it is because of the virus JoyAnnReid Pick Harris JoyAnnReid smart move Lead by example. Are you a junkie? Where's that report, oh that's right . You don't want the public to see it, just like the documents released that tie Clinton to epstien Island. No one report

JoyAnnReid Heck, he doesn't even need to get out of sweats and his slippers!! It's a done deal. Yet again, our true President JoeBiden is doing the right thing!! Yay!! The thin blue line won’t be there to keep his handsy supporters away from him...Oops. Cowards JoyAnnReid Just make the whole thing virtual then no one is not coming. Everyone can join virtually and it is the new norm. Trying to find ways to put people unnecessarily in the same room is exactly that. Unnecessary

If voted into office, unlikely as it may be, will he be sworn into the position in his basement or the White House's? Won't debate(or can't), won't do live interviews, won't answer unscripted questions, and won't even go to his own DNC nomination. This is the leader you want? Has America had enough of shaking up the System.
