Joe Biden is in Kenosha on Thursday, two days after President Donald Trump.
Once again, Biden seems to be behind Trump in doing the right thing and Trump had a reason, as president for going. Biden’s only reason for going seems to be to have a photo op.
Immediately, people noticed a difference in the two visits.

There may have been one Biden supporter.

But given the history of the name “Uncle Joe” (as in Stalin), it may not have been a supporter. It also reminds us of why not to vote for Biden.
According to one report that was ‘deliberate.’
Much more low key response to @JoeBiden #kenosha visit than @realDonaldTrump – this is deliberate, Biden wanting to avoid a circus, but the media pack easily outnumbers supporters here @theheraldsun @dailytelegraph pic.twitter.com/4WVtXgWdiK

That a convenient explanation for the lack of enthusiasm.
The media outnumbered the supporters. Biden held a community meeting at Grace Lutheran Church.
But there was a very obvious difference in Biden’s remarks immediately. Trump’s remarks were about the situation there and helping people, Biden’s remarks were his campaign pitches. Why is he talking about taxes, as he does here? And he makes a horrible joke that if he tells them more about his tax plan “they’ll shoot me.” Given the circumstances of Kenosha, really not something to joke about there.

So I’m confused, was he there to provide support or to hold a campaign event? Because it sure sounded like the latter.
Actually pretty impressive that he managed to get his foot through the mask and into his mouth so easily. https://t.co/2RlKVTsDvm

But he did sound very out of breath and quite frankly, really old.

Really? So what was he doing in his 47 years in government? 8 years in the Obama administration?
He then inveighed against people not being taught history, claiming a black man invented the light bulb, not Thomas Edison. This is wrong, Edison did invent the lightbulb, but Lewis Latimer invented the carbon filament to make it last longer.

Yikes. Can we say pander? Is he seriously preaching, incorrectly, to black people about black history?
But he also got in a lie which he started his campaign with and has continued to say at every campaign event: the lie that the president called Neo-Nazis “very fine people.”

Again, this has been debunked ad infinitum, but Biden just keeps lying about it. In the very same remarks that President Trump made about Charlottesville, he said, “I’m not talking about the Neo-Nazis, because they should be condemned totally.”
He’s literally lying in a church.
As he says it, you can hear how labored his breath is, he sounds really awful.
He did manage to meet with the family of Jacob Blake for about 15 minutes. No apparent separate meeting with business owners.
Apart from the brief meeting with Jacob Blake’s family, it appeared little more than another campaign event.
