Biden spent more than one-third of September off the campaign trail:
The Democrat presidential hopeful also
called a lid on September 28 — the day before the first presidential debate between him and President Trump. His excessive lids prompted Trump last month to point out to Pennsylvania voters Biden’s lack of public appearances.
“They have a thing called the lid, lid. I don’t even know. Do you know what lid stands for? Lid? He put out a lid today early in the morning,” he told supporters in Moon Township, Pennsylvania:
“Lid means he’s not going to be anywhere today. I’m working my ass off,” he added. “I’m in Ohio. I’m in Texas. I’m in Florida. I’m in Michigan. I’m in Wisconsin.”
The day off the campaign trail
follows Biden’s post-debate train tour from Ohio to Pennsylvania.
“He did what I expected him to do last night,” the former vice president
said of the debate during one of his stops. “I think the phrase was, ‘Now he can become really vicious’; that was his phrase.”
“He’s trying to run against somebody other than me,” he continued, explaining that he is not worried about losing the ultra-left after Trump suggested he had. Notably, Biden rejected both the Green New Deal and Medicare for All during Tuesday’s debate.
“I’m not worried about losing the left, right, or the center of the party,” Biden said. “This is a big party.”
