(PatriotWise.com)- Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden once again proved that he can’t handle a speech without a teleprompter, after he was seen during a very sparsely attended rally in Phoenix, Arizona. According to JKSAC-TV reporter Nicole Garcia, Biden and his VP pick Senator Kamala Harris were seen making a campaign stop, with a tiny crowd of supporters vaguely noticeable in the distance.
“Not a lot of fanfare out there,” she said. “There’s really not much to see. I’ll step out of the way, but it’s kinda boring out here. So it’s not your typical presidential campaign event…we don’t see people rallying outside, we don’t see signs or really much of what’s going on.”
And for such a low-profile event, candidate Joe Biden couldn’t even handle an off-the-cuff speech. A huge teleprompter was filmed fright in front of Biden. It was a large television screen with a camera above it, blatantly on view for everybody to see.
Conservative media outlet The Blaze jokingly suggested that the teleprompter was bigger than the crowd, and looking at the footage, it’s hard to argue with.

And, most of the people who turned up appeared to be media. Journalists can be spotted moving around the tiny crowd taking photographs.
The Biden campaign has been famously shy about admitting his use of teleprompters. Fox News anchor Bret Baier asked TJ Ducklo, a Biden spokesperson, recently whether Biden uses teleprompters, particularly during Q&A sessions with voters and supporters.
“Bret, we’re not gonna, this is straight from the Trump campaign talking points,” he said. When Bret said that the Trump campaign were using the line, Ducklo continued to duck the question.
“What it does, Bret, is it’s trying to distract the American people…they’re using it. They talk about it every day,” he said.
And they talk about it because it appears to be true.
The Biden event stands in quite stark contrast to the huge rallies being hosted by President Donald Trump in these final weeks of the campaign.
On Saturday, President Trump drew around 10,000 people to a Wisconsin rally. Biden can’t rally even 100.
