Biden Attempts To Flip Flop on His Willingness to Shut Down Country

Heh. I guess that position wasn’t as popular as he thought.

During Biden’s first joint interview with running mate Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., on Aug. 21, Muir asked Biden if he’d be prepared to shut the country down if the coronavirus crisis combined with the flu season as scientists have warned is a possibility.


When Muir pressed whether he shut down the country if the scientists advised him to do so, Biden responded, “I would shut it down. I would listen to the scientists.”


“There’s going to be no need, in my view, to be able to shut down the whole economy,” Biden said. “I got asked by David Muir a question, if I was asked to shut everything down. I took that as a generic question if — am I going to follow the science? I am going to insist, and I insist now, without any authority, that every responsible person in this country, when they’re out in public or not, with the cohort that they have lived with — because they know they haven’t spread it to their husband, wife, etc. — that they wear a mask.”

As I interpret that word salad, I think he’s saying that he’s going to force everyone to wear a mask so it won’t be necessary to shut down the whole economy. Am I understanding him? Is he understanding himself?

    I don’t think he realizes what he said day before.

    Somebody get him back in nursing home with a drip.

    Heard an extended clip of Hidin’Biden yesterday on the radio.  It was painful to listen as he tried to assemble thought(s) in a coherent sentence or paragraph.  Forcing this guy into the public should be classified as elder abuse.

    But it tells you what the (D) Party poohbahs knew in March:  that Trump would win a second term and therefore, they are running a sacrificial lamb.

    OR it tells you that Biden is the best they have to offer, telling you even more about the bankruptcy of that party which now threatens riots, insurrection, and mayhem of Hidin’Biden loses.

    OK, then.  Bring it on.

    Dad29, read many Trump transcripts?  Coherent, you say?

    Hillary’s scripts were coherent, Jiffy.

    And Trump is able to string stuff together even though it appears to be disjointed.

    Hidin’Biden?  He can’t even read his teleprompter correctly.

    Trump can’t remember who was with him….
    Trump claims he “called home, I spoke to my wife and I said ‘I hate this. I came here to go to that ceremony.’ And to the one that was the following day which I did go to. I said I feel terribly. And that was the end of it.”

    Facts First: Melania Trump was on the same trip with the President and was scheduled to attend the cemetery visit. She was not in the US.
