Biden and His Teleprompter Show, Even His Press Conference Was Scripted

Sept. 12, 2020 (EIRNS)—EIR Daily Alert reported last week that the “press conference” by Joe Biden on Sept. 4 was obviously scripted, with every question from the fawning press simply stating Biden’s view on something and asking him to concur. Now, it appears that not only is the Biden campaign scripting questions for the media, but the answers are pre-scripted as well, and put on the teleprompter for the cognitively impaired candidate to read.

The evidence comes from a softball question asked of Biden in a virtual press conference earlier this week in which Biden sat quietly for several seconds looking confused, then said “move it up here” to someone in front of him, before responding. It appeared to be the teleprompter.

Fox News reporter Brett Baier had Biden’s national press secretary T.J. Ducklo on his show Thursday night, Sept. 10, and asked him directly if Biden ever used a teleprompter in answering questions at a press conference. Ducklo ducked and weaved for a few minutes, calling the question “Trump campaign talking points,” which Baier acknowledged was true, and pointing out that he’s giving Ducklo a chance to deny it. After several requests for a yes or no, Ducklo said: “I am not going to allow the Trump campaign to funnel their questions through Fox News and get me to respond to that.”
