It’s official! Joe Biden is throwing his hat into the ring, assuming he can find his hat, that is. And the ring. But he’s in! And his announcement video featured just as much of Biden speaking directly to the camera as you’d expect — practically none! As a snapshot in the sorry state of American politics, you would be hard pressed to do worse than this video.
Guest host Aaron Maté and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger talk to special guest Jimmy Dore about Biden’s announcement, as well as the DNC’s plan to forgo debates in order to protect Biden from having to actually speak extemporaneously in public.
