(Gateway Pundit) – Biden put his “No Malarkey” tour on hold and is currently practicing “social distancing” because of the Coronavirus pandemic so he has been giving briefings and interviews from home.
So far it isn’t going well.
Things for Biden took a turn for the worse on Wednesday when a reporter set him straight after he tried to dunk on President Trump’s job approval numbers amid the Coronavirus pandemic.
A Gallup poll released Monday shows President Trump’s handling of the Coronavirus hit 60% approval and his job approval is at 49%.
“The president’s numbers with the public have gone up in handling this crisis, but they haven’t gone up in terms of his presidency,” Biden said to a reporter.
After some awkward silence, the reporter set Biden straight.
“Uh, Gallup did show he is now at 49% job approval which is a reversal from a few weeks ago…so it suggests that the American people see him as a stronger leader than you’ve been characterizing him,” said the reporter.
Biden then came back and praised Trump with an awkward endorsement.
You just can’t make this stuff up.
“Well, I hope that he’s so strong that he’s up way above that,” said Biden.
BIDEN: "The president's numbers with the public have gone up in handling this crisis, but they haven't gone up in terms of his presidency."
REPORTER: Actually, his job approval is also up.
