Apart from occasional television appearances through a black mask the size of a Rawlings baseball mitt or pretending to be on the verge of collapsing from dehydration in social media videos, 78-year-old President Joe Biden is nowhere to be found.
Biden’s name will not appear on the $1,400 COVID-19 stimulus direct payments being sent out to millions of Americans this month, according to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki. “This isn’t about him,” Psaki said emphatically. “This is about providing help to the American people.”

Although Psaki argues that the action is in response to the federal government’s attempts to speed up the relief process, it is an eerily accurate portrayal of Biden’s reclusive campaign and presidency. The absence of Biden’s name from the checks is a metaphor for his disappearance from the campaign trail and now the presidency. Since choosing to run for president for the third time, he has avoided the spotlight on several occasions.
Biden attended 53 rallies in total, compared to 86 for former President Trump, according to a final count of 2020 presidential campaign rallies. Biden cancelled public speaking engagements in advance, including all protests leading up to his October debate with Trump.
Hundreds of Biden’s ostensible “rallies” were staged digitally, ostensibly to avoid contracting COVID or in desperate need of another Botox shot to keep up the pretense that he is in good enough mental and physical shape to be president. Biden appeared to fall asleep on camera with Hillary Clinton during a virtual town hall in April 2020. He announced his candidacy for the Senate to Toledo, Ohio voters in October 2020.
The “gaffes” from Biden just kept on coming. They continue to do so. This, along with other factors, contributed to Joe’s lack of excitement.
According to a July 2020 Associated Press-NORC Center For Public Affairs poll, 42 percent of Trump supporters were “excited” about the victory, compared to just 31 percent of Biden supporters. In a March 2020 poll conducted by ABC/Washington Post, “strong enthusiasm” for Biden was at 24 percent, the lowest of any Democratic presidential nominee in the last 20 years, while Trump rode the ship at 53 percent.
“We have the most momentum in the history of politics, and he has the least,” Trump yelled to an audience in Janesville, Wisconsin, in October 2020.
Another notable difference between the Trump rallies and the Biden “rallies” was the size of the crowds. For one thing, Trump’s rallies were energizing, entertaining, and youthful. Crowds of Americans wearing MAGA hats and waving flags were energised by songs such as “Billie Jean,” “All Right Now,” “We Are The Champions,” “Macho Man,” and others. Trump’s signature song appears to be “God Bless The United States of America,” as shown by his February address at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Fla.
Biden’s rallies drew an average of 38 people per event, with a total of 1,996 people in attendance from August to November.
The average attendance at Trump rallies was 13,024 people, with a total attendance of 1,120,070. (not including his many rallies leading up to 2020). Trump refused to let the virus prevent him from appealing to the American people face to face. He outperformed his 2016 rally tally by around 50%, which at the time put him ahead of Hillary Clinton in overall attendance by 853,935 people.
Biden may have won the election, but he did so by attracting votes from Democrats and Independents who were more concerned with eliminating the “mean orange guy” than with electing a senile career politician.
It seems that voters didn’t mind if a man was unfit as long as he was running against Trump, whom the left portrayed as a dictator.
Every day, Psaki sanctimoniously attempts to justify Biden’s current positions. Who knows if these are his own positions or those of the administration’s radical puppetmasters.
“Video calls have taken the place of in-person meetings for [Biden].” In February, Politico reported on Biden’s daily routine, saying, “He allows only a small number of people in the building — even workers who would usually be in the West Wing are working from home or in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building next door.”
“He seldom leaves the White House…. For the time being, he has no plans to travel abroad or inside the United States. He wasn’t telling visitors to the White House until this week, when he invited senators from both parties to speak about the Covid-19 recovery legislation.”
In contrast to the “page-turner” executive orders Biden has put through, this president’s words are rarely lengthy and in-depth. A quick look at Biden’s Twitter feed is like visiting BrainyQuote.com. Each post is a well-crafted catchphrase fit for a bumper sticker affixed to the side of a woke suburban mother’s minivan. The tweets, however, are not written by Biden. Brendan Cohen, his social media manager, is a man called Brendan Cohen.
“While Trump would call friends and allies at random,” Politico added, “Biden has a list of phone calls planned for him.” “Whereas Trump didn’t mind aides and outside associates walking into the Oval Office, Biden has a small number of gatekeepers who monitor access.”
Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz’s address at the Republican National Convention in August foreshadowed what would become of Biden’s presidency. Gaetz said, “I’m listening to you from an auditorium that is more empty than Joe Biden’s regular schedule.” By this time, Trump’s coined term “sleepy Joe” to describe Biden had become a conservative favorite.
As of this writing, he has signed nearly 50 orders, while Barack Obama had signed 28 and Donald Trump had signed 27 during their respective presidencies.
Former White House speechwriter David Keltz beautifully captured Biden’s grim shadow presidency in The American Spectator. “What a contrast between our current basement president and our previous president. “Perhaps no song better captures Vice President Biden’s first two weeks in office than the Beatles’ ‘Nowhere Man,’” writes Ketz.
“He’s a real nowhere man
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Doesn’t have a point of view
Knows not where he’s going to.”
We live in an odd time and place, headed by a senior citizen who remains quiet while his henchmen tend to run the show.
