With just 40 days until the presidential election, on Thursday, Joe Biden’s campaign called it a day at 9 am. Meaning the Democratic nominee won’t be holding any public events for the rest of the day.
Biden’s campaign blasted out the email at 9:20 a.m., announcing ‘Sleepy Joe’ the 77-year-old Democratic nominee would spend the day in his Wilmington, Delaware, basement where he has been sequestered for much of 2020.
Now if this sounded familiar, it should because despite ‘Morning Joe’ claiming he’s out working President Trump, dementia Joe may have forgotten that over the course of the past few weeks, he’s done the same exact thing at least 1/2 dozen times.
His running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), also has no public events, but then again, maybe she’s just getting her geriatric groove on with a man twice her age?
Yesterday, Sleepy Joe told reporters he would spend Thursday preparing for his first debate with President Trump in Cleveland, Ohio, which is set for next Tuesday night.

In spite of Biden’s boistrious claims, he almost non-existant schedual stands in stark contrast to the frenzied campaigning of Donald Trump.
The president will be flying to Charlotte, North Carolina, to deliver remarks on his health care plan before traveling to Jacksonville, Florida, for one of his signature rallies at 7 p.m.
And unlike Kamala Harris, Vice President Mike Pence has also been quietly zig-zagging across the country on a bus tour and will spend Thursday at stops in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and Minneapolis.
Trump seized on the announcement in a tweet in which he suggested Biden was tired and not up for the top job.
“Sleepy Joe Biden just closed down his campaign for the day (Again). Wants to rest! He is a very LOW ENERGY INDIVIDUAL, and our Country cannot make it in these exciting, but complex and competitive times, with a Low Energy President,” he wrote.

Sleepy Joe Biden Giving “Morning Joe” A Whole New Meaning
Not only has Sleepy Joe been shunning public events for months, he’s also repeatedly shunned questions from reporters, fueling criticism that he is unable to face intense questioning, as if the mainstream media would ever dare.
Last week, The New York Post revealed that the commander-in-chief had fielded roughly five times more reporter questions than Biden since July over the last two months.
According to their review of the candidates’ interviews and briefings, Biden took zero questions during at least one eight-day period in late July and early August.
Next week’s highly anticipated debates will be the first time the two candidates face off in person and follows months of jibes from the Trump campaign about Biden’s cognative decline.
The president has reportedly shunned traditional preparation for the three debates. Trump telling aides that he was counting on his opponent to make one of his infamous verbal fumbles.
And President Trump’s plan may have some merit, afterall, they don’t call Joe Biden ‘The Human Gaffe Machine’ for nothing
