Yesterday Biden had an event in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania that was predicted to have similar energy:
There is a very good reason the media never provides a wide shot of Biden’s rallies and speeches. You get more people at PTA meetings.

Most of the videos from the news just show Biden addressing the audience from the stage, and it’s no surprise that Biden’s handlers would have requested no wide shots because the size of the crowd was… well, let’s just say rather unimpressive for a president who we’re told received the most votes of any candidate in U.S. presidential history:

This could help explain why Biden’s approval rating actually went UP when he was on vacation, and then things went back to normal when he got back to calling half the country semi-fascists.
