Why is Joe Biden always putting a “lid” on his campaign? If you’re not familiar with the press lingo, a “lid” is a note to your press pool that you plan no further public events on your schedule. Biden tends to put a “lid” on it at 9 or 10 in the morning, saying his press corps has nothing to cover.
On Sept. 23, they called a “lid” at 9:30 a.m. — the ninth time they’ve done it this month. Is it due to never-ending debate prep? Biden denied that, saying he’s just getting ready to prepare.
Since March, Biden has barely done any campaigning, trying to make a virtue out of the fact that he’s not going anywhere or saying much of anything during the coronavirus pandemic. Biden’s staff would claim that while Trump endangers his voters by having rallies, their candidate is leading by example.
He’s not leading by example. He’s lidding by example.
Guess what? The liberal media, those energetic watchdogs who bombastically claim to keep democracy from “dying in darkness,” don’t care one whit. I popped into the Nexis search engine to find out how many times Brian Stelter’s Army at CNN has raged against Biden’s “lid.” In the last month, there are two scripts that contain the words “Biden” and “lid.” Neither was about a Biden story.
One was CNN’s White House shrieker Jim Acosta still obsessing over the Lafayette Square protesters cleared out on June 1 so President Trump could strike a pose in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church. Apparently, someone in the military wanted to use a heat ray on protesters, but it was never used. How this nonstarter is “news” is anyone’s guess.
Acosta used the L-word as he told Don Lemon: “I don’t think this is the last we’ve heard from this whistleblower. He is, I mean, he is doing something patriotic here, Don. He is blowing the lid off of our government using what are some pretty ridiculous tactics, harsh and un-American tactics on our fellow citizens.”
Actually, no — these tactics were not used.
ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS? Is there something wrong with the search engine? These networks all send cage fighters into the Trump and McEnany briefings, but they’re docile little lambs on the “lid.”
The Washington Post? No stories with “Biden” and “lid,” and media specialists like Erik Wemple and Paul Farhi haven’t touched it. USA Today had nothing.
What about NPR? Nope, media reporter David Folkenflik was napping like a Biden, although one weekend anchor promised “breaking news on the canning lid shortage.”
The New York Times? “Biden” and “lid” drew no stories. At least Mark Leibovich of the Times reported on Sept. 22 describing Biden’s “tightly restricted bubble,” that his “pandemic-era campaign appearances can resemble the pandemic-era NFL — quiet, eerie and almost entirely fan-free.” He noted pro-Trump protesters hold signs saying “Hidin’ Biden.” But the story was loaded with Biden fans supporting his, er, restraint.
so the saprophyte is hiding in his basement in preparation for tuesday nights debate-right. the major question is when is he going to call off the debate?? excuses: virus attack, diarrhea is bad, false teeth do not fit, bad hair day, the bus was late to Cleveland, hemorrhoids inflamed, AD medications did not kick in, need to stop by the bank, hunter needs a few thousand for the hookers tonight.
And we are supposed to believe greg when claims sleepy joe is leading President Trump in every poll nationally? greg must be on an acid trip…
Yes finally they mention the canning lid shortage! NPR right on that, that, you know the thing. Obviously the Amish strike again, food hording for the winter. Common Man everyone should be able to go to the Fleet and Farm and get a lid on this stuff.
Its global warming we need a Green new canning deal. I need instruction on how to put up 100 pints of applesauce using a solar oven.
Bidens playing hide and seek, shhh lets just not look for him til way way after the election.
Yesterday the Biden camp put an extended lid on Joe.
From yesterday, the 25th all the way to Tuesday’s debate on the 29th!
Is it for debate prep?
Or, is it, as one world business traveler opined, so what’s left of Joe’s brain would think it was morning so as to be sharpest at 9PM instead of 9AM?
Could be they are implanting his “earpiece” under his skin to make it undetectable?
Could this be why?
@July 4th American:
How could anyone deny that Joe Biden is in the advanced stages of dementia? Now he’s saying he got to the Senate 180 years ago. His wife should be brought up on charges of elder abuse.
The Democrats prove they have no heart to put him through this just so they can get rid of him and let 1% Camel-la become president.
I watched a loved family member go through this. The first thing to go is short term memory. She lived just about a year. Say “hello” to President Camel-la in 2021 if Bargain Basement Joe win.
Where are all the liberals? Things have gotten so bad, I guess they’ve had to retreat and regroup, trying to develop a new barrage of lies.
Hell, when Biden is out front and active there’s nothing to cover. Absolutely nothing.
Maybe when they say “lid”, those “journalists get the wrong idea.
sleepy joe was the dumbest senator to ever serve in the US Senate. And, sleepy joe was by far the dumbest Vice President ever to serve.
the review in the American Thinker was very accurate in symptoms and and medical knowledge. i have a feeling the the Trump officials and the debat officials will be scanning every radio bad simultaneously to pick up and evidence of cheating. On can only imagine the impact of paedophile creepy joe cheating on the debats. recall that the press and media are not bright and gigantic hypocrite
