Biden makes first public appearance in months on Memorial Day

Source: The Hill

Former Vice President Joe Biden marked Memorial Day on Monday by participating in a wreath-laying ceremony at a local veteran’s memorial near his Delaware home, in what was his first time in public after weeks of self-isolation amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee had not left the area around his Wilmington, Del., residence since mid-March, when the pandemic put an indefinite pause on in-person campaigning.

Biden, wearing a black face mask, was accompanied by his wife, Jill Biden, on his trip to the Veterans Memorial Park at the Delaware Memorial Bridge in New Castle. The Bidens placed a a wreath of white flowers at the site.

“Never forget the sacrifices that these men and women made. Never, ever, forget," Biden told reporters after being asked if he had a message for Americans on Memorial Day.

The stern look as he attempts to look appropriately dignified = Just another act in the reality show.

20. He's trying to look solemn but

manages only to look petulant. Maybe he’s pissed that dead soldiers are getting all the attention today and that he has to bear the unfair burden of pretending he cares.

23. Red White and Blue

It's just the lipstick on the pig. Who cares what color it is. That's my idea anyway.

They say the clothes make the man but I never subscribed to that. The man makes the man. In this case, he could star on my 600 pound life and not make any difference. He would would still be a small man.
