President Trump spoke with “Fox & Friends” Monday morning by phone where he slammed Democratic presumptive nominee Joe Biden saying he “doesn’t comet out of his basement.”
This, of course, is a true statement. Biden has been campaigning from home and seemingly avoiding making a lot of public appearances and fielding tough questions from reporters, likely due to the fact that participating in such events would expose just how far his mental state has deteriorated over the last year, something that has become painfully obvious to anyone watching him conduct interviews.
Trump went on to say, “We have a guy that doesn’t come out of his basement and the media covers.”
“When they ask me questions, I have these people — there is fire coming out of their eyes. They’re asking me questions. I see the fires burning in their eyes and I am looking at some of them. I said boy, how could you have so much hatred and we’re having such success,” the president said.
Trump then said that reporters “throw bombs” at him every single day while Biden refuses to answer questions.
Here are more details from Fox News:
“And somebody like Biden, he doesn’t know what to do. He doesn’t come out because he can’t. He doesn’t take any questions from reporters. … This guy doesn’t come out of his basement, and he hasn’t taken one question.”
For the past five months, President Trump, his campaign and his allies have mercilessly ridiculed Democratic challenger Joe Biden for “hiding in his basement” of his home in Wilmington, Del.
Monday’s kickoff to the Democratic National Convention marks Biden’s moment to reset the narrative about the energy behind his candidacy.
It looks like Biden is planning to get out of the basement a little bit later this week when he gives his nomination address from a convention center in Delaware. The Democratic National Convention itself will be a virtual event this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The DNC is bringing out the big guns this year, hoping to build up some enthusiasm which has been sorely lacking for the Democratic Party ever since Obama vacated the Oval Office.
Folks like John Legend will be giving musical performances and addresses by both the Obamas and the Clintons will be delivered during the event.
