A reporter for a local news company criticized the event for being boring and lacking fanfare as she noted empty streets and parking lots.
“Not a lot of fanfare out here,” FOX10 reporter Nicole Garcia said, standing in front of the Heard Museum in Phoenix. “There’s really not much to see. I’ll step out of the way, but it’s kinda boring out here. So, it’s not your typical presidential campaign event, we don’t see people rallying outside, we don’t see signs or really much of what’s going on.”
Altho the Biden campaign admitted to hosting to small scale event due to Coronavirus, the turnout was not what “you would expect to see,” since Arizona has cemented itself as a swing state and this marked Biden and Harris “campaigning together for the first time since the Democratic National Convention.” Daily Wire Reported.
“I’m told by one of the Biden staffers, local staffers, is that they kind of kept the details about the visit, as far as the timing and the exact locations—they didn’t really want to give that out to the public because they want to keep the crowds to a minimum,” Garcia said. “They realize we are in pandemic and they don’t want a crowd of more than 50 people at any of their events.”
“Pretty much all the people that we saw enter into the parking lot about 45 minutes ago were with the Biden/Harris campaign and the pool reporters,” the reporter said. “So, you would expect to see—I mean, this is a pretty big event for the two of them to be campaigning together for the first time since the Democratic National Convention. Here in Arizona, we’ve established our state … as a battleground state, and so this is technically a big event, but not a lot of fanfare.”
“There is this stop here, the meeting with the tribal leaders, that’s going on right now,” Garcia explained, “and later this afternoon they’re expected to launch their ‘Soul of the Nation’ bus tour right out here, right out of Phoenix.”
After handing over to the studio, one of the anchors added: “I don’t live too far from the Heard Museum,” one of the anchors noted, “and you’d expect a lot of police commotion and bystanders and well-wishers, but didn’t see any of that this morning.”
Biden Busted over the supreme court
In 1983 Biden criticized the idea of packing the court, calling it a “bonehead idea.”
“President Roosevelt clearly had the right to send to the United States Senate and the United States Congress a proposal to pack the court. It was totally within his right to do that. He violated no law. He was legalistically, absolutely correct,” Biden, then 40, told the committee. “But it was a bonehead idea. It was a terrible, terrible mistake to make. And it put in question, if for an entire decade, the independence of the most-significant body … in this country, the Supreme Court of the United States of America.”
However, Biden refused to answer a question on the issue recently, Biden said the country would “know my position on court-packing when the election is over.” Fox News Reported. He added: “Look, the only court-packing that’s going on right now. It’s going on with the Republicans packing the court now,” Biden said, arguing that “it’s not constitutional what they’re doing.”
