Kyle Kulinski on Joe Biden

Being a strong Bernie Sanders supporter, Kyle Kulinski has not been a vocal advocate of Joe Biden during his run for the 2020 presidency. Appearing on Joe Rogan’s podcast, the progressive commentator made similar claims as Sam Harris and Paul Bloom on the Making Sense podcast. Re-iterating the now growing sentiment that Joe Biden appears to be in some type of cognitive decline and is not the spry 70 year old he was when he went toe-to-toe with Paul Ryan in the Vice Presidential debate.

However Kyle Kulinski went into even further detail, saying that the Biden campaign has instituted a strategy of limited exposure for him: “they have a plan that’s the limited exposure or limited visibility plan where they are literally hiding him from the public.” Kyle appears to be referencing this article from the Hill that reported that Biden’s allies have been floating the prospect of limiting Biden’s exposure in an attempt to limit the gaffe’s he has consistently been making on the campaign trail.

Kulinski and “Default Support”

Kulinksi called the support for Joe Biden, what he calls “default support” which he explains as: people who don’t necessarily follow politics closely, or they might be a registered democrat, and they’re asked “who are you supporting in the next election? Oh I know Biden, he was a VP for Obama. Why not?” That’s the kind of support I think Joe Biden has.

Unfortunately this sentiment didn’t age particularly well as shortly after this was filmed (October, 2019), Biden would stage a thunderous run in the primaries completely running away with the nomination. Given his support for Bernie Sanders, it’s not hard to believe that Kyle might have had a blind spot on the aversive reaction American’s may have had to Bernie’s self identification as a democratic socialist.

Kyle Hammers Biden For Taking Super PAC Money

Continue his attack on Joe Biden, the progressive commentator accused Biden of betraying his promise not to take Super PAC money and only accept donations from individual donors (as Bernie Sanders has done). After Bernie became the frontrunner to take down the Democratic nomination following his victory in Iowa, Biden reversed course and began accepting Super PAC money. At the time it was widely seen as a desperation play but, in retrospect, is hard to criticize from a strategic point of view. After securing the nomination, Biden is now (June, 2020) widening his lead over Trump in the polls as the election nears. That said, as we’ve already discussed, Biden is far from a sure thing to defeat Trump especially considering his proclivity to say things that clearly make no sense.

This is the first post we’ve yet published on Kyle Kulinski but it appears unlikely it will be the last we write on the young progressive commentator. With that in mind, the same internal rules apply: if we become aware that Kyle  has changed his opinion or should new evidence be submitted that we have either misconstrued his opinion or failed to include important statements from him, we will 1) make the correction, 2) note the correction here, 3) issue a mea culpa that attempts to explain and improve on how we missed this.
