In an earlier post, we’d said we didn’t know what had become of Joe Biden’s podcast, entitled, “Here’s the Deal.” It turns out it’s a real thing, and as his guest, Biden had on that woman from Michigan, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, who’s awfully thirsty to fill that VP slot, to talk about the nation’s response to the COVID-19 crisis.
For some reason, though, Biden’s campaign decided to release the segment in which Whitmer and Biden recall sharing Fig Newtons, his favorite snack, when he was passing through the state one time. Oh, and he and John Kerry are also addicted to peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
What do Fig Newtons and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches have in common? Listen to this preview of this week's podcast to find out — and then check out the full episode at https://t.co/t11Fa0CorE or wherever you get your podcasts. pic.twitter.com/AfL018UA4h

Wow, after that segment we can’t wait to listen to the rest.

After Bloomberg dropped out I assumed we'd at least see Biden's team absorb some smart advisers who actually knew how to go after Trump and run a serious campaign. Instead, we're still seeing…. whatever this is. https://t.co/0ztmDtPH4b

While President Trump is fighting the virus,
Joe Biden is telling stories about peanut butter & jelly sandwiches?
You need to fire whoever is doing your social media.
I shouldn’t be telling you that, but this is painful.

Remember Super Sugar Smacks, Joe? Remember the Prize in every box, Joe? Remember listening to The Lone Ranger on the radio, Joe?

I'm worried about my friends and family losing healthcare and a world where I risk catching a potential life-threatening virus just to get groceries but that's awesome about the Fig Newtons, man. Really reading the room here. https://t.co/lsCctIbr9y

my neighbors and family are debating risking their lives to vote because this senile hair fetishist pervert refused to push the vote date back, and what words of wisdom does he have to offer them?

Are people really risking their lifes to vote for this person? How tone deaf can a person be to put this out today?
— Women for Bernie (@only4bernie16) April 7, 2020
Pretty tone-deaf. Biden’s probably just happy to have someone to talk to after being locked in his home TV studio for a couple of weeks.
