President Trump is staging three campaign events in Pennsylvania on Monday in a bid to bolster support in a state he narrowly carried four years ago, while Vice President Pence is being dispatched to Minnesota despite a fresh outbreak of the coronavirus that has infected his chief of staff and others who work with him.
Democratic nominee Joe Biden has not advertised any campaign events on Monday but plans to touch down in several battleground states in the days ahead.
Former vice president Joe Biden, meanwhile, is hosting a virtual “I Will Vote” concert, and his running mate, Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.), is spending the day in Michigan. Harris participated in a drive-in church service and canvass kickoff event outside Detroit;
CNN’s Jake Tapper asked Biden campaign surrogate Sen. Chris Coons why the candidate is taking multiple days off per week this close to the election. Biden held no public events on Saturday.
Trump has repeatedly knocked Biden for spending a large portion of his campaign at his home in Delaware amidst the pandemic. Trump and his supporters accuse Biden of hiding in his basement while the left-wing of his party calls all the shots.
Aber wo sind Joe Biden und Kamala Harris? Mit ihren Videobotschaften werden sie nichts erreichen, wenn gleichzeitig die Fernsehbilder den Präsidenten mit beiden Beinen in den abgebrannten Ruinen zeigen.
Pelosi’s comments come as the Biden campaign has been fighting accusations from the Trump campaign and Republicans that the former vice president does not want to debate Trump. Following Pelosi’s comments, Biden and his campaign made clear that he still intends to debate Trump.
“This is a very serious time”: The coronavirus has reshaped the Democratic National Convention.
Four years ago, more than 15,000 journalists covered the DNC in Philadelphia. At this year’s DNC? Think double digits.
None of the major TV news operations plans to send a news anchor team to Milwaukee for the convention.

William Evanina, Leiter des „National Counterintelligence and Security Center“ (N.C.S.C.) bzw Abteilung für Spionageabwehr innerhalb der obersten U.S.-Geheimdienstbehörde O.D.N.I., hat verkündet, Russland würde vor der Präsidentschaftswahl versuchen den Kandidaten Joe Biden zu „verunglimpfen“ (der Vollständigkeit halber: China und der Iran würden angeblich Joe Biden unterstützen) und insgesamt Zwietracht zu säen und „das Vertrauen des amerikanischen Volkes in unseren demokratischen Prozess untergraben“. Das ist erstens ein guter Witz und zweitens natürlich eine Drohung an die gesamte Presse weltweit: Wer meckert, ist Feindsender.
Dazu eine kleine Antwort. Wie immer weder kurz, noch schmerzlos.
There have been two big rallies in Democratic chances so far this year — the first in late February and early March as it became clear that the coronavirus was a serious problem, while the Democrats opted for Biden rather than one of the more progressive candidates, and the second in June as the protests over the killing of George Floyd rocked the nation, and the pandemic worsened once more.
Biden’s margin is no better than it was five weeks ago. Meanwhile, new cases are at last beginning to trend downward. This suggests the momentum is changing in the president’s favor:
„I don’t know what the hell he’s saying,“ Hannity said. „What’s going on here? Democrats refuse to talk about it in public. The mob and the media, they’re not talking about it in public. But I can tell you, I know for a fact in private, they are telling me and many other people they know it is a serious problem.

“I said: ‘What’s the most likely thing that will happen if I live?’ He said, ‘Well, the side of the brain that the first aneurysm is on controls your ability to speak.’ And I thought: ‘Why in the hell didn’t they tell me this before the ’88 campaign?’ It could have saved us all a lot of trouble, you know what I mean?”
Biden „will no longer travel to Milwaukee and will instead address the nation and accept the Democratic nomination from his home state of Delaware,“ the party said in a statement, announcing that no speakers would physically attend the August 17-20 convention, which will be entirely virtual.
„Come on, man. That’s like saying you, before you got on this program, you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not. What do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?“ Biden said, becoming testy with the reporter, CBS’s Errol Barnett, who asked whether he had taken a cognitive test.
Democratic officials have instructed senators, members of Congress and party delegates not to physically attend their national convention this summer, a sign of the ever-shrinking aspirations for their big campaign event in the face of a surge in coronavirus cases in the United States.
The directive, issued Thursday, ensures that little will happen at the convention site in Milwaukee beyond speeches from former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., his vice-presidential nominee and a handful of other top party leaders.
In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, Democratic Party officials have instructed members of Congress and delegates to skip in-person attendance at their national convention, The New York Times reported Thursday.
Two days before the South Carolina primary that would reverse his political fortunes and redirect the course of the Democratic nomination, Joe Biden’s campaign for president announced a hastily planned event in McClellanville, South Carolina. The national campaign press was alerted that Biden would enter full battle mode at this stop, that the proverbial gloves were about to come off ahead of the kill-or-be-killed primary on Saturday, and no one would want to miss this one.
And yet, when the cameras and reporters arrived, all they found were a few folding chairs in an otherwise empty parking lot, in front of a community health center. Biden walked out to a podium, mumbled a few words about the improvements he wanted to make to Obamacare, and then shuffled off, alone. The sun was shining, the birds were chirping, and absolutely nothing had changed.
Throughout the Russia investigation, Weissmann had been considered a “deputy” to Mueller, with conservatives regularly targeting him for his reputation of using aggressive tactics in cases, as well as his role in past controversial prosecutions. Weissmann helped to build the case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
The candidate has reached the peak of his career in the rec room of his basement, talking into a computer.
In dem teils hitzigen Interview mit dem beliebten afroamerikanischen Moderator Charlamagne Tha God, der mit bürgerlichem Namen Lenard Larry McKelvey heißt, ging es um Rassismus in den USA. Der Moderator erwiderte auf Bidens Äußerung, es beunruhige ihn, dass „die Demokraten die schwarzen Wählerstimmen für eine Selbstverständlichkeit halten“.
An aide for the former vice president attempted to wrap the interview after the question.
„Thank you so much,“ the aide said. „That’s really our time. I apologize.“
„You can’t do that to black media,“ Charlamagne responded.
„I do that to white media and black media, because my wife has to go on at 6 o’clock,“ Biden said. „Uh oh, I’m in trouble.“
Democrats are making new moves toward a virtual presidential nominating convention this August, with a top party committee voting Tuesday to grant convention organizers in Milwaukee the authority to design an event that won’t require delegates to attend in person amid the coronavirus pandemic.
In this screengrab taken from JoeBiden.com campaign website, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) endorses Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden during a live streaming broadcast on April 13, 2020.
Die „dramatischen Einschränkungen“ werden auch den VfGH beschäftigen. Van der Bellen ist überzeugt, „dass der Verfassungsgerichtshof sich auch in dieser außerordentlich heiklen Situation bewähren wird“. Schließlich sei der Gerichtshof seit 100 Jahren „der Hüter der modernen, liberalen Demokratie“.
Joe Biden said Sunday that the Democratic National Convention may need to be held virtually.
The former vice president and 2020 Democratic frontrunner told ABC’s “This Week” that his party’s convention is “necessary,” but added it may not be possible to bring thousands of people to one location safely amid the pandemic.

„Don’t be such a horse’s ass,“ @JoeBiden
says after the man continued to yell at him.
Speaking at the White House National Conference on Mental Health on Monday, Vice President Joe Biden told a sometimes serious and sometimes jocular story about the two brain surgeries he needed in 1988 to deal with cranial aneurysms.
But, as the Democratic establishment has united with creepy speed and obedience behind Biden in order to stop the Sanders candidacy, those who now raise these concerns instantly come under a withering assault of insults and attacks from Democratic Party operatives along with their crucial media allies: thinly disguised pro-Biden reporters who continue to insist on wearing the unconvincing and fraudulent costume of neutrality. They are invoking the classic Orwellian formulation from the novel 1984: “The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.”
Consider how the Democrats fill vacancies on their tickets:
“Filling a Vacancy on the National Ticket: In the event of death, resignation or disability of a nominee of the Party for President or Vice President after the adjournment of the National Convention, the National Chairperson of the Democratic National Committee shall confer with the Democratic leadership of the United States Congress and the Democratic Governors Association and shall report to the Democratic National Committee, which is authorized to fill the vacancy or vacancies.”
So, to be clear, the vacancy would be decided by Tom Perez (a 2016 Clinton superdelegate), Steny Hoyer (a 2016 Clinton superdelegate), Jim Clyburn (a 2016 Clinton superdelegate), Chuck Schumer (a 2016 Clinton superdelegate), Dick Durbin (a 2016 Clinton superdelegate), and the DGA will decide on their own who will be our Democratic nominee.
Ms Panahi said it’s surprising the candidate, who is “so confused that he has trouble remembering where he is and why he’s there,” has not been discounted.
“Biden’s cognitive issues have been evident for some time but just watch the same media who for four years have been declaring Donald Trump mentally and physically unfit for office have a collective meltdown when Biden’s mental faculties are questioned,” she said.
It’s easy to overlook linguistic peculiarities when they’re spoken, so I made a verbatim transcript of Biden’s complete answer, exactly as he spoke it. There are no typos. Read it carefully, resisting the urge to mentally re-word it in order to make it make sense:
Please don’t show me any footage of Joe Biden saying or doing things. Or of me saying or doing things about Joe Biden, pointing out what I erroneously thought were major and obvious flaws in his candidacy. I forgot: They were not.
Biden! Obama-Biden! Obama! Doesn’t that name just fill you with confidence! Say it soft and there’s music playing! Just listen to that name and think how much you recognize it! I am endorsing him now.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women are created, by the, you know, you know the thing,” Biden said.
The actual line is: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Later in the speech, Biden mistook “Super Tuesday” for “Super Thursday.”
I honestly wish he would’ve retired & not subjected himself to the rigors of this campaign.
