Joe Biden will not attend the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Milwaukee to accept the Democrat presidential nomination, supposedly due to coronavirus fears.

In a statement from DNC organizers, the party revealed that Biden will not attend the convention in Milwaukee, and will instead accept the party’s nomination virtually from his home in Delaware.

“From the very beginning of this pandemic, we put the health and safety of the American people first. We followed the science, listened to doctors and public health experts, and we continued making adjustments to our plans in order to protect lives,” Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez said.

“That’s the kind of steady and responsible leadership America deserves. And that’s the leadership Joe Biden will bring to the White House,” he added.

It follows a move from both parties to dramatically reduce the size and scope of their national conventions in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The DNC was to be held almost totally online, with 4,000 delegates instructed not to attend. However, until Wednesday, Biden was still going to be at the conference himself to accept the nomination.

So what changed? It’s not like the coronavirus suddenly got any worse from Wednesday, and Biden would become instantly more at risk from travelling to the DNC in Milwaukee, especially when practically nobody would be there. There has to be another factor—and I think I know what it is.

I think Biden’s handlers finally realized with his recent appearance on Yahoo News, denying that he’s ever had a cognitive test, that there is no way on this planet that they can let him deliver a live speech with all of the eyes of the world watching.

He has to be kept locked away in his home in Delaware, like he has been for almost the entirety of this campaign, where the world can’t see just how much his brain has turned to mush. It’s simply too much of a risk; but no, they won’t tell you that!
