Former Vice President and Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden’s campaign schedule was called into question this week; with supporter complaining they haven’t seen the Obama official since his kick-off event in Philadelphia on May 18th.
“After launching his Democratic presidential campaign in late April, the former vice president came out of the gate with a busy schedule, holding events in all four of the states that kick off the primary and caucus calendar, as well as stops in California. And Biden started and closed that campaign swing with speeches in his native Pennsylvania, which is also a crucial general election battleground state,” reports Fox News.
“But Biden hasn’t held a public campaign event since his large kickoff rally in Philadelphia on May 18. Since then, he’s only headlined a top-dollar fundraiser in Nashville, Tenn., and two more in Florida,” adds the article.
“Joe Biden has no public events scheduled,” read a release from his campaign.
The former Vice President now enjoys a double-digit lead over Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders according to recent polls.
President Trump unloaded on former Vice President and Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden Monday; saying Barack Obama “took him off the trash heap” during the 2008 race for the White House.
“Looks like Bernie Sanders is history. Sleepy Joe Biden is pulling ahead and think about it, I’m only here because of Sleepy Joe and the man who took him off the 1% trash heap, President O! China wants Sleepy Joe BADLY!” tweeted Trump.

“Trump’s tweet seemed to be a reference to Biden’s poor performance in the 2008 Democratic primaries. Biden consistently polled in the low single digits in that race and dropped out after garnering just 1 percent in the Iowa caucuses. Obama later tapped him to be his running mate,” reports Fox News.
“I look at Joe, I don’t know about him,” Trump told reporters last week. “I would never say anyone’s too old. I know they’re all making me look very young both in terms of age and in terms of energy.”

BIDEN REBUKED: AOC Says Biden Presidency Would be ‘Going Back,’ Vows ‘To Go Forward’
Democratic superstar Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez refused to back former Vice President Joe Biden’s potential presidential run over the weekend; saying the top Obama aide’s win would be “going back” while she hopes to “move forward.”
Ocasio-Cortez was speaking with Yahoo News podcast ‘Skullduggery’ Sunday when she was asked to comment on Biden’s long-rumored White House bid.
That does not particularly animate right now,” said the Congresswoman.
“I can understand why people would be excited by that, this idea that we can go back to the good old days with Obama, with Obama’s vice president. There’s an emotional element to that, but I don’t want to go back. I want to go forward,” she added.
Recent Democrat polling shows Biden slowly losing momentum among supporters, with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders taking the top spot in the latest surveys.

BIDEN VS BARR: The Former Vice President Says It’s Time for the Attorney General to RESIGN
Former Vice President and Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden weighed-in Thursday on Attorney General Barr’s testimony before Congress; saying it’s now time for the top DOJ official to resign from office.
“Biden’s call for the attorney general’s head came after multiple 2020 Democratic candidates came out urging Barr to resign in the wake of revelations that Mueller told Barr that his summary of the report ‘did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance’ of the Russia investigation report,” writes Fox News.
“I think he’s lost the confidence of the American people. I think he should,” Biden told reporters when asked if it was time for the Attorney General to step-down.
The former Vice President’s comments come days after he opened a wide lead in the Democratic primary; topping Bernie Sanders by a whopping 24% in recent polls.
