For months now, Joe Biden has chosen to stay away from the public and in his basement. Of course, the former vice president’s 2020 campaign is citing coronavirus as the reason for Biden’s public disappearance.
Still, facts matter. The country is gradually reopening for business and Americans are getting out and about. Nevertheless, Biden remains huddled away and in his basement. He’s held several virtual press conferences and interviews, all from the confines of his basement.
It’s time for you to leave your basement & humiliate yourself every time you open your mouth.

Yesterday, President Trump’s 2020 campaign censured Biden’s decision not to campaign in the real world. In a memo, the president’s re-election campaign stated that Biden is trying to steer clear of embarrassing himself, reports Breitbart News.
The Real Reason Why Biden Won’t Leave His Basement
Trump 2020 communications director Tim Murtaugh did not mince words when calling out the former vice president. In the aforementioned memo, Murtaugh stated that Biden’s avoidance of travel and direct contact with voters is rooted in a preference for “tightly controlled” events.
While the former vice president continues to campaign from his basement, he has left his home to visit Texas and Pennslyvania. It’s worth noting that the events Biden attended in these areas did not grant reporters access to ask him challenging questions.
.@JoeBiden is running for president from his basement to avoid embarrassing, catastrophic episodes in public.
He's dodging reporter questions & preventing a full vetting in front of the country.
We hope the media joins our call for Biden to stop hiding. https://t.co/i0F9t0D18n

In another segment of the memo, Murtaugh pointed out that Biden being “set loose” leads to cringeworthy and crass statements. The Trump 2020 communications director also pointed out the multiple times in which Biden struggled to complete thoughts and full sentences.
There are too many examples to cite of the former vice president stammering, forgetting his words, and otherwise humiliating himself in environments without strict guidelines. At this point, only time will tell whether or not Biden gets out of his home’s basement and returns to traditional campaigning in real-time.
