As Twitchy reported, Joe Biden and his wife Jill will travel to Kenosha, Wisc., Thursday, two days after President Trump visited and toured the riot damage. As Guy Benson noted, Biden had originally decided against visiting Kenosha, then criticized Trump for traveling there, and then announced that he was going to visit after all.
Tim Murtaugh, director of communications for the Trump campaign, had a good question with an obvious answer:
"How is it that Joe Biden can fly to Wisconsin tomorrow but he was unable to fly to Wisconsin two weeks ago to accept the nomination?” – @TimMurtaugh to reporters in response to the news that Biden is going to Kenosha

The Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway couldn’t help but notice the optics of Biden so quickly following Trump’s visit to Kenosha after announcing he wasn’t going there.
Biden copied Pence's convention rhetoric against violence, now Biden is planning to copy Trump's trip to Kenosha (after harshly criticizing Trump for going yesterday). Difficult to ignore the optics of who is leading, who is following.

It’s especially fitting since Biden keeps questioning Trump’s leadership.
Not an original idea nor strategy among any in today’s left. ?

He's good at that. Copy and paste, Joe.

He’s an 80 year old man trying to tackle Hershel Walker from behind.

Well, he was taught to lead from behind by his former running mate.

Biden has taken Obama’s “leading from behind” to a whole new level: “campaigning from behind.”
— Cindy Simpson (@Simpsonreport) September 2, 2020
Biden is following his old boss who said “lead from behind”. Trump bought pizza last week, Biden bought pizza Monday. Trump went to Kenosha yesterday, Biden is going tomorrow. Biden leading from behind. About 2 days behind. Don’t know who he’s taking advice from, but it’s bad.

Biden doesn't have an original thought and It takes awhile to organize and hold a focus group to tell him what to do.
— Gary Doyle (@GetInTheGame18) September 2, 2020
His “Brain Trust” group are apparently tearing their hair out to come up with anything they think will fly.
— Jay Doolittle (@Thespis80) September 2, 2020
We wonder if there’s anyone in his focus group other than Jill.
the biden campaign micromanagers are struggling. the whole thing is like that failure of a convention.
— Dani the girl (@NewYearsDani) September 2, 2020
But seriously, that convention was pretty bad.
Imitation is the sincerest form of…

He is also following a lot of Trump’s messaging.

If Biden has original ideas he would have shared by now.

Maybe Joe needs to go help bail out more rioters.

So North Carolina needs to prepare for #JoeHiden' visit in the next 48 hours.

I don’t think he’s gonna copy it. I think he’s going to go and blame Trump and Trump supporters. And he’s going to look nuts doing it.
— Joseph Clark (@JoeJ_Clark) September 2, 2020
We wouldn’t doubt it. He’ll probably take a cue from Joy Reid and claim that Trump supporters are the ones doing all the rioting and looting.
‘Saw the internal polling’? Joe Biden displays bold leadership once again and decides to follow Donald Trump to Kenosha https://t.co/tvyIuVy5mW
