Biden's Weird Trip to Saginaw

President Biden campaigned in Saginaw, Michigan this week. The optics were bad. 

It is difficult to understand exactly what the Biden campaign's strategy is as he tries to convince voters that he should be re-elected in November. The campaign is concentrating on swing states, as is expected, but when Saginaw, Michigan was chosen, people rightly asked why. 

It turns out that Saginaw County is a swing county in a swing state. Voters in Saginaw County voted for Barack Obama, Donald Trump, and then Joe Biden. Will they stay with Biden this time around? 

Why would anyone vote for Joe Biden after seeing him on the campaign trail? The visit to Saginaw provided a close-up of how the old man is handled to get through even a casual event. 

Biden held a campaign event on the porch of a 131-year-old Victorian mansion owned by Saginaw City Councilman Bill Ostash and Saginaw Public Schools Board of Education member Kevin Rooker. It was raining but the gay pride flag was flying for the photo ops. 

Biden delivered a pep talk to about 50 supporters and campaign volunteers. Most of the press were out in the rain in the yard. 

How does this kind of event move the needle in the presidential election? It was held with 50 people who are voting for Biden. It didn't reach out to undecided voters or independent voters, the ones that need to be moved to his side in a swing county. 

Biden told a story he frequently tells but has been debunked. Yet, he persists.

This was at least the 11th time Biden has told a variation of the same fake story.

He has told it to firefighters in Philadelphia, D.C., and online, wildfire victims in California, Colorado, Hawaii, and New Mexico, hurricane victims in Florida (twice), and in New Hampshire.

Biden, campaigning in Michigan, claims his fire department once "saved my wife, saved my cat, and saved my Corvette" in a housefire.

That's a debunked lie. According to a 2004 AP report, it was "a small fire...contained to the kitchen" that "was under control in 20 minutes."


As usual, when it came time for Biden to take questions, the press were yelled at by staff and hustled off. 

Biden was met at the airport by Congressman Dan Kildee and Saginaw Mayor Brenda Freeland. 

Where was Governor Gretchen Whitmer? She has a good relationship with Biden. She was considered when Biden was looking for a vice presidential choice. She was making beer.


In another campaign stop, a dazed and confused Biden was helped by handlers who led him into a building. 

It's almost enough to garner sympathy. Instead, it makes me angry. This is the president and he can't get himself through a door without help. He's too confused to know where he is or what he's doing. 

Voters in Saginaw County have picked the winning presidential candidate since 2008. 

Biden is losing support in all demographics but most noticeably, he's losing black voters. The trip to Saginaw was one of outreach to the black community. Saginaw's population has shrunk in recent years but it remains a hub for black residents. 45% of local residents are black while the statewide percentage of black residents is 14%. 

So far, Biden's re-election campaign is not doing what it needs to do. Trump's winning.

If the election were held today, based on the current RCP Poll Averages in battleground states this would be the Electoral College map:


The most disturbing part of Biden's campaign appearances is the fact that his handlers don't let him answer questions. Think about that. His handlers start yelling at the press to leave as soon as Biden asks if he can take questions. He asks the handlers. Why is the leader of the free world asking anyone for permission to take questions? Who is in charge? 

We know that answer. Biden cannot answer questions when the questions are not screened in advance. The videos of the press being removed only bring the point home that Biden has to be protected from them. 

Biden is not up to doing his job now. How can he be expected to do this job for another four years? Democrats don't care. It's all about holding on to power and they think this man who is suffering from dementia is their best shot against Trump. Let that sink in. 



WATCH: Biden Wanders Aimlessly in Rain, Karen Handlers Shoo Away Press

Today in “this is how Democracy™ works, Jack, no joke, you dog-faced pony soldier,” we have the virile president of the United States getting lost in the rain, rescued, and then shielded from public views by his frumpy, childless handlers (the press they are paid to control are surrogate children to them).

Via BizPac Review (emphasis added):

The lengths to which President Joe Biden’s handlers will go to protect him from scrutiny before the election was laid bare in a shocking video clip that’s blowing up on social media.

Team Biden has made the call that the mentally decaying 81-year-old can’t be allowed to function in a non-controlled setting where there’s a chance that he could go off script, potentially making the killer gaffe that could cost him a second term.

On Thursday, the plan was seen in action when the geriatric Democrat was set to field questions at an event in Michigan when a trio of white liberal women rushed in to shoo off reporters in what was described by one social media user as an “incredible scene.”

During his visit to Saginaw, the president dropped by the 131-year-old mansion owned by the Saginaw City Council and Saginaw Public Schools Board of Education members where he schmoozed with voters on the building’s porch.

In the video, Biden is heard asking “Can I take a couple questions?” and a woman wearing a Biden-Harris campaign jacket also says “We’re going to take a few questions,” at which point the protective harpies intervened to chase away reporters. It was a stunning – and very revealing – scene.

Below is the video depicting, doing their best North Korean minder impression, the anonymous gaggle of Karens who apparently run the government, or at least the alleged president, swoop in to save the day with a chorus of high-pitched, passive-aggressive “thank-yous” and “back to the cars” as they shoo the cameras away.


At what appears to be the same event, here the Brandon entity is bewildered in the rain before dutiful supporters come to his aid and guide him inside, but not before a deadly door almost takes him out of commission.

News followers will note this is by no means a freak occurrence. Biden is routinely censored by his own staff to avoid embarrassing gaffes.

"Am I allowed to take any questions? Anybody here?" the Brandon entity asks seemingly nobody, standing and looking confused before the feed gets cut to the event.
