Biden Asked 12 'Softball' Questions By Reporter, Not One About Leftist Violence
Former vice president remained silent amid the recent attacks
Presidential candidate Joe Biden was asked a series of softball questions by reporters, all of which avoided recent reports of Trump's supporters being attacked by far-left groups Antifa and Black Lives Matter.
Despite the fact that the former vice president called for "healing" and "unity" between the left and the right, he has remained silent amid the recent leftist attacks at the Trump march on Saturday.
Neon Nettle reported that while far-left groups descended on Washington D.C to disrupt the otherwise peaceful pro-Trump demonstrations, the Democrats tweeted that Biden would “restore the soul of this nation and bring us together.”
Most of the attacks took place after dark, which targeted innocent people.
Instead, reporters decided to ask Biden about the economy.
And not one journalist asked Biden why he has been silent about such issues as violence against Trump supporters.
Below are the 12 questions asked, via rev.com:
What do you see as the biggest threat to your transition right now, given President Trump’s unprecedented attempt to obstruct and delay a smooth transfer of power?
Does student loan forgiveness figure in your plan, would you take executive action to achieve it?
What options do you have to try and ensure that you are ready to go on day one?
And what is your message to Republicans who are backing up the President’s refusal to concede?
[A]t the end of the day, do you want [Trump] to concede?
[W]ill you get vaccinated?
And if you’re hesitant, why should any American have confidence in the vaccine?
[D]o you think that more governors should be closing non-essential businesses and reinstating stay at home orders?
[W]hat is your message to people who are considering, for example, getting together with their families and others for Thanksgiving?
Would you urge people to reconsider their plans?
What would you do right away, specifically to address jobs that may not return for months, may not return ever, including in communities of color?
It seems that, in the last couple of days, 15 countries, Asian Pacific countries, have signed onto a new trade deal, the RCEP. Should the United States consider joining that trade agreement?
You have indicated changes you want to make in US International Policy on other fronts, like the Paris Climate deal. … But why not here?
Former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer argued:
“If Biden supporters were attacked, the only questions to Trump would be about violence, demanding that he condemn it.”
Biden took about 12 questions from reporters today. Not one was about the violence against Trump supporters in the streets of DC. No one asked him to condemn it.

Last week, Neon Nettle reported on videos showing Trump supporters being sucker-punched, kicked, shoved, and having their property stolen from them by BLM and Antifa members.
