Biden finally left the bunker and gave his first press conference in 90 days and most of it was filled with the regularly anti-Trump one-liners. However, during the press conference, he did abandon the radical left.
During the press conference, Biden was asked about radicals that tearing down statues, in his answer, he abandoned the far left claiming that the statues shouldn’t be torn down but removed from public places and put in a museum.
Biden said, “There’s a difference between monuments to treasonous pro-slavery Confederates, celebrating that role, and monuments to slaveowners like Washington, Jefferson; Confederate monuments should go in museums, not public places, while Jefferson Memorial etc. should be protected.”

So who’s going to tell Biden museums are a public place?
It was clear though, he just dropped the radicals like a hot rock…
Biden realized a long time ago he doesn’t need the far-left to win… now if only Sen. Braun could be as brave as Biden https://t.co/KvTrZei666

For the most part, Biden’s press conference was a shame, he was calling on pre-selected reporters using a list given to him by his staff, the first two questions were:
- How should Trump be punished?
- Where do you think the race stands?
He wasn’t asked…
No, that would be a real question that he doesn’t have an answer for.
Could these questions be any more pre-screened. https://t.co/yJ3bjL0Osh

Not one reporter brought up Obamagate either…
So far, no one has asked about why Biden mentioned the Logan Act in January 2017 and misled the public about his role in the prosecution of Michael Flynn.

Biden did commit to three debates and said he could “hardly wait.”
Joe Biden was just asked if he has begun to prepare for debates against Trump.
He says he can “hardly wait”.
We can hardly wait too, Joe. pic.twitter.com/uekh1abaiw
