Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign called a lid on in-person events before noon Saturday, the seventh in the last 14 days alone.

The Hill’s media reporter Joe Concha asked whether Biden’s campaign — moving “at a 50% clip” with fewer than six weeks to go before the November election — was “a preview of a Biden presidency.” (RELATED: Biden Campaign Calls A ‘Lid’ Before Noon For The Eighth Time This Month)

And Concha was not the only one to notice.

Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich also drew a comparison between Biden’s campaign and the rigors of actually serving as president, saying after the last press lid, “You can ‘throw a lid’ on campaigning for seven out of 14 days but if you become president you can’t ‘throw a lid’ on being president for even one hour. What does the 50% absenteeism Biden schedule tell us about his ability to actually be president?” (RELATED: ‘It Is Exactly What Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Did’: Newt Gingrich Turns The Tables On ‘The View’)

Biden’s Saturday lid, reportedly for in-person events only, was to allow time for continued debate prep and two virtual appearances.
