Biden Suggests He Can Draw Massive Crowds, Eclipsing Trump Rallies


Biden suggested that he can draw massive crowds — even bigger than President Trump’s rallies — during a highly anticipated interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Friday.

In the days following last Thursday’s disastrous presidential debate, the Biden Campaign has been scrambling to assure voters that their candidate is capable of winning in November. The president has been attempting to fend off growing calls from Democrat lawmakers, donors and strategists to exit the race, which has led to a number of rare campaign rallies from Biden, who generally speaks to small crowds of party insiders.

During one such rally in Wisconsin, a seemingly energized and defiant Biden spoke to a sizable group of supporters. “In Wisconsin yesterday I made it clear: I plan to win this state and win this election.”

Biden appeared to be more than pleased with Friday’s turnout during his interview with ABC. When asked how he plans to turn the campaign around, the president replied with, “you saw it today.”

“How many how many people you get draw crowds like I do? Can you find any more enthusiastic than today, huh?” Biden said.

“I don’t think you want to play the crowd game,” Stephanopoulos shot back. “Donald Trump can draw big crowds. There’s no question about that.”

“You can draw a big crowd, but what’s he say? Who’s he have? I’m the guy supposedly in trouble,” Biden responded.

Elsewhere in the interview, Biden rejected the notion that he should take a cognitive test and release the results to American voters.

“Look, I have a cognitive test every single day. Every day I have that test. Everything I do. You know, not only am I campaigning, but I’m running the world. And that sounds like hyperbole. But we are the central nation in the world,” he said.

“Madeleine Albright was right. And every single day, for example, today, before I came out here, I’m on the phone with the Prime Minister of… I know I shouldn’t get into the detail, but… with Netanyahu. I’m on the phone with the new Prime Minister of England. I’m working on what we’re doing with regard to… in Europe with regard to expansion of NATO and whether it’s going to stick. I’m taking on Putin. I mean, every day, there’s no day I go through that I don’t have to make those decisions.”

“So that’s why I’m asking, to reassure them, would you be willing to have the independent medical evaluation?” Stephanopoulos followed up.

Biden again rejected the notion, stating that there is plenty of time left to turn things around. “I’ve already done it,” the president said of a potential cognitive test.
