Democrat presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden was rescued by his wife Jill and his handlers when he couldn’t recall his upcoming travel plans.
As a presidential candidate, Biden has not been in the public eye much and is consistently safeguarded when he makes a blunder.
Today was another example.
Biden responded to a question from a reporter on Monday and couldn’t recall where he was traveling to on Tuesday.
Reporter: "You guys voted early today?"
Joe Biden: "Because I’m going to be in, where am I tomorrow? I’m in –?"
Jill Biden: "We're traveling."

The media is beginning to question Biden’s go-slow campaign strategy.
A CBS reporter questioned why Biden wasn’t out in the public campaigning more following the announcement of no public events over the weekend.
And yes I realize there's a pandemic and he shouldn't be out shaking hands. But he has a team of experienced people at his disposal to think up creative ways to campaign safely.

Comments responding to the reporter were posted on social media.
You're not sure? Many of us are sure.
1 He has dementia
2 He is in poor physical health and cant keep up
3 No teleprompter is going to overcome 1 & 2

Because he can’t

It’s glaringly obvious Biden has been missing in action for months.
Fox News reports:
Biden only recently jumped back onto the campaign trail, after spending much of the pandemic campaigning virtually from his Delaware home. He went months without hosting a press conference or talking to reporters.
It’s really surprising, Biden is not hitting the campaign trail much harder after Labor Day, and his light travel schedule only adds more concern about his mental and physical capacity.
Declining health is the most likely reason Biden is not traveling the country.
