As Twitchy reported Monday, after Joe Biden gave a short speech in what looked like his backyard, an ABC News reporter called out the hard-hitting question, “Are the gloves off?” We know that journalists assigned to cover Biden (and those that aren’t) are anxious for him to disprove President Trump’s “Sleepy Joe” moniker and for him to actually get out there and, you know, campaign.
Biden was in Tampa, Florida Tuesday, where he was greeted by more Trump supporters than his own. He spoke to veterans about veterans, skipping over the VA scandal under the Obama administration, and then ran to catch his private jet. We thought Trump was the “climate arsonist,” but it looks like Biden will fly from Delaware to Florida and back to speak to a handful of people and then not take questions.
The Biden campaign tweeted a photo of Biden apparently jogging up the steps of the plane:

Yesterday: CLIMATE CHANGE!
Today: FIRE UP THE PRIVATE JET! https://t.co/sKq44GSCZ5

Monday’s speech was all about climate change bringing fires, floods, and hurricanes to your suburb if he’s not elected.
I look forward to you flying to a random location, taking no questions, and flying back home to the sycophantic cheers of the media https://t.co/H50KfwgaOU

I love how they have him do these 3 second jogs to try to make him look younger and more active.

What's the point of flying anywhere? He just talks for 3 minutes, no questions, then goes home.

He's also about 3 news cycles behind…..focusing on the military angle and the Atlantic article…..that was yesterdays news 5 days ago……

Did I miss a revision to the Green New Deal permitting unnecessary air travel? It seems like it would be infinitely more cost effective to set up a sound stage with multiple teleprompters, changing the backgrounds (hangars/fields seem popular) to further the campaigning illusion!

I think he should fly somewhere, lecture us all on the dangers of fossil fuels and then fly back without taking questions.

Not wasting jet fuel at all

Joe's campaign is, in three words, a ridiculous farce, and, for the life of me, I can't figure out what the Democrats are doing here.

I thought you were against climate change.
You fly in on a private jet, take an SUV to talk to empty rooms with no supporters, talk to a camera, then take no questions and fly home.
Waste of hot air from both you and the plane you flew in on.

No need to leave his home for that little talk! No people and no questions from the press!

There was video, though, so we got to see him talk about the upcoming Harris-Biden administration.
He's having a town hall in Scranton, PA right down the road from me and the town is not invited. Aint that some [email protected]

His recycled, outdated speeches are behind 20 news cycles. “I would, will, when….” mantra include many Trump accomplishments. Biden really needs to socialize more, get out of the you know, the thing. ?

"Show Joe with mask at all times!" campaign strategy to avoid live questions is losing steam. Kamala Harris is actively talking about her administration.

Biden's case against 'climate arsonist' Trump hinges on suburbanites being terrified of getting burned, flooded out, and blown away https://t.co/xYcqYh6eSB
