Apparently there was a “signing ceremony” of sorts earlier today where presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden appeared alongside his vice presidential running mate Sen. Kampala Harris so they could sign documents “related to accepting the party’s nomination at next week’s Democratic National Convention.”
According to the New York Post, the event was “tightly controlled” and lasted for a whopping total of two minutes. As it turns out, calling it “tightly controlled” was a bit of an understatement.
After the staged event was over Biden’s handlers quickly moved to shoo reporters out of the room as they tried to ask questions of both Biden and Harris. Judging by the clip, it looks as though the journalists in attendance were all but literally shoved closely together behind some sort of curtain as the event concluded.

This and yesterday's event go along way to prove the point that a lot of Republicans including DJT have made about how the Biden campaign has used the pandemic as an excuse to keep him confined to the basement so they can better control the message since he tends to blurt out things as his mouth outruns it's supply line. The longer this goes on, the more frustrated the media are going to get and the more it will lend credence to the claims made by the Trump campaign and others that the Biden campaign is trying to hide something.
