Biden is out of his basement and he is talking. Here are some things Biden has to say:
On his fitness to be President: “Watch me, Mr. President. Watch me,” Biden, 77, said in an interview with ABC News broadcast Sunday night. “Look at us both. Look at us both, what we say, what we do, what we control, what we know, what kind of shape we’re in. Come on.”
On serving a second term: “Absolutely.”
On serviing as a transition President to bring younger people into politics and the Democratic Party: “We haven’t spent nearly enough time building the bench in the Democratic Party,” he said. “And that’s about raising people up. And that’s what I’m about.”
On his virtual campaign: “We’re going to follow the science, what the scientists tell us,” Biden said. “We’ve been able to travel places when we’ve been able to do it in a way that we don’t cause the congregation of large numbers of people.”
On getting out of his basement: “Guess what? I have left my basement,” Biden said. “In the meantime, 500 million people have watched what I’ve done out of my basement. And guess what? People are listening. People are listening. It’s about being responsible.”
On defunding the police: ”I don’t want to defund police departments,” Biden said. “I think they need more help, they need more assistance, but that, look, there are unethical senators, there are unethical presidents, there are unethical doctors, unethical lawyers, unethical prosecutors, there are unethical cops. They should be rooted out.”
On Kamala Harris and her heritage: “I cannot understand and fully appreciate what it means to walk in her shoes, to be an African-American woman, with Indian-American background, a child of immigrants,” he said. “She can’t assume exactly what it’s like to walk in my shoes. What we do know is we have the same value set.”

All the president is, is a glorified public relations man who spends his time flattering, kissing, and kicking people to get them to do what they are supposed to do anyway.
