Where oh where is Sleepy Joe Biden?

He has only been seen 6 minutes out of the last 8 days.

Now that is leadership Sleepy Joe !

Thank you Nancy Pelosi, Dick(less) Schummer, and Democrats for voting against relief aid to Americans............I am sure if the aid was for illegal immigrants you would have passed the bill in a nano-second.

Who needs enemies when you have the Democrat Party screwing us over every step of the way both nationally and locally with a 25% property tax increase.

Democrats promise free stuff to win elections, but when they finally get a chance to prove it they choose instead to let the whole nation suffer just to spite their opponents. Is there a single voter out there who STILL can't see the enemy in plain sight?

I wonder if Sleepy Joe Biden even remembers he is running for President?

Wonder how many times Jill Biden has to explain to Sleepy Joe what corona virus is ?

Is Hunter Biden still able to drop off the Burisma gas company bribe money to Dad each weekend?

Biden is busy preparing his cabinet so can go to work on day one of administration to fix the mess Dementia Donnie has made. I’d rather see less of Biden during this crisis than hear Dementia Donnie bumble, fumble, slur, stammer and lie through his press conferences every day.

You assholes have any idea what's in the Republican proposal and why Democrats oppose it. How many of you were pissed off during the Wall St. bailouts after the housing crash or the auto bailouts? Well, the latest McConnell offer is a corporate slush fund about 6x what Obama did for the Auto industry. With 0 protections for employees. Is it too much to ask if taxpayers are going to kick $500B to corporations like United and others that there's total transparency and stock buybacks and layoffs are prohibited. C'mon. You guys are just being pissed to be pissed. The Dems are trying to do what's right here. If I'm off base on this, please fill me in.

That bill, as is, has "corporate lobbyists" written all over it, end of story.

Joe Biden has been seen publicly for just 6 minutes in the past 8 days

Meanwhile, the President has been on stage 7 days a week answering tough questions and providing guidance

Trump has shown fearless leadership

Biden hasn’t even shown his face

Where is Joe?

Even RINO Mitt Romney pissed at Demosleazeballs scamming the Relief Bill:

"Nothing in the Senate has shocked me, until today. Standing in the way of a critically needed rescue package is irresponsible and reckless. Dems say not enough money to states: nearly $200 billion isn’t chump change. Hospitals get at least $75 billion."

^^Republicans just want a blank check for corporate interests. Christ, if any forum should be pissed about that, you'd think it'd be the cabal hating, swamp draining TKC forum. But here the fuck we are.

9:42 - well, what do you suggest, Joe call up ABC, CBS, NBC, whoever and ask for some time for an address? FFS, the guy has a twitter account, go look at that and STFU.

And Trump ain't answering shit. His worthless press conferences are just a tool for him to rant about the press, air his grievances and lie. And appease his idiotic base that eats it all up.

Dementia Donnie has lost the presidency over this crisis. No amount of “where’s Joe Biden” can erase that. The country is sick of all his gross incompetence lies and general ineptitude.

Joe Biden said...

I'm right here. A new comprehensive statement is now online. No 'poor me', this is unfair, or false promises of this will be over soon.

Just leadership as it should be.

“Trump keeps saying he is a wartime president — well, start to act like one. Donald Trump is not to blame for the coronavirus but he does bear responsibility for our response.

President Trump and Mitch McConnell are trying to put a corporate bailout ahead of millions of families... this bailout package a slush fund for corporations.”
