不不不不不不 A small crowd turned out to see Bernie Sanders campaign for Joe Biden in New Hampshire on Saturday. Sanders was stumping for Biden in the town of Lebanon. “Bernie Sanders takes the stage for a distanced rally for Joe Biden in Lebanon,” Adam Sexton of WMUR reported, posting a photo of a handful of people there to see the socialist senator: But that photo was not taken from a deceptive angle. There were only tens of people who turned out. The New Hampshire Democratic Party posted a video to Twitter revealing the paltry turnout: Biden campaign staffer Laura O’Neill posted a similarly unflattering photo of the tiny crowd, which seemed to rival the number of media members: Rob DiRienzo from Fox News shared a side angle: During his remarks, the socialist Sanders praised Biden’s economic proposals as “strong.” Sanders won the Democrat primary in February, narrowly edging out Pete Buttigieg, 25.6 percent 24.3 percent, NBC News reported. Biden came in a distant fifth place with just 8.4 percent.

不不不不不不不不不Dr. Jill Biden @drbiden , the wife of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, campaigned in the Twin Cities on Saturday, making stops in St. Paul and speaking to supporters in Minneapolis. Drawing what one outlet described as “a small, but energized crowd of women deemed ‘Women for Biden,'” at her last stop, Biden appeared happy to appear in her husband’s stead while pushing his political agenda. The dozen or so supporters were kept at a distance by standing inside hula hoops placed at six-foot intervals to hear her speak. She did not take questions from guests, nor did she entertain questions from the media during her public appearance, which began about 2 p.m. and ended some three hours later, the StarTribune reports. Strict social distancing measures were kept at all times, as was the wearing of masks for personal protection. “Joe has spent his entire career listening and bringing people together,” Biden said at the last event at Utepils Brewery. “He will be a president for all Americans.” The StarTribune reported she commended Minnesota’s female politicians for breaking barriers, including Sen. Amy Klobuchar, wished President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump a “quick and full” recovery from COVID-19 and claimed the pandemic has plunged the entire country into “chaos” and wrapped Americans in a “magnitude of loss.”
