Here’s Why The Same Jeeps Showed Up To The Joe Biden Speeches

Believe it or not but in this crazy world of conspiracies and other nonsense there are people suggesting the Jeeps staged at President-elect Joe Biden’s acceptance speech are part of a conspiracy. We can’t imagine what that conspiracy might be? Jeep is taking over the government? Biden will soon force everyone to drive a Jeep or else? But in reality, it is all so plainly simple why the same Jeeps showed up to the Joe Biden speeches.

Biden’s people staged Jeep Wranglers and Gladiators as well as Ford Rangers and Chevy Silverados. They were decorated in the Biden-Harris campaign ephemera and placed to keep people from crowding the stage. They were also for friends and family of the Biden and Harris campaign. It is nothing more sinister than that.

Says Buzzfeed, which first delivered the news, “They had the clean and perfect look of new rental cars, windows darkened, paint gleaming in the sun. In the style of a tailgate, aides had placed a pair of blue folding chairs in the back of each truck.” In a sense, they were props alternating in red, white, and blue, which also happened to be Jeeps. 

The vehicle assortment the cameras picked up in shots kept to American-made vehicles

The vehicles also kept the vehicle assortment the cameras would pick up in overall shots to American-made vehicles. You know, those vehicles assembled by UAW workers. After all, the UAW endorsed Biden and Harris. Biden is also credited with helping GM and Chrysler through the Great Recession back in 2010. Both were on the brink of bankruptcy. 

So, yeah, it was staged. Those vehicles sat there for a week while the vote count throughout the country slowly moved along. Sometimes the cameras would pan the area that was the center of the Biden-Harris campaign in Delaware. Throughout those days the Jeeps, Chevys, and Fords were prominently seen sitting empty.

The Jeeps got Biden-Harris friends, family, and Secret Service some breathing space in front of the stage

There was no intimation these were random vehicles showing up for a Biden-Harris win and never left. Like there were people using the section in front of the stage as a parking lot. Or that the local Jeep dealer dropped the Jeeps off and then ran away. They were just decoration. And also a subtle barrier getting Biden-Harris friends, family, and Secret Service some breathing space in front of the stage. 

We suppose the Jeep dealer might be able to tag a small amount onto the prices of these particular Jeeps. You know, because they were seen multiple times a day as camera shots focussed on the Biden campaign headquarters. How much extra would you pay to have one of those red, white, or blue Wranglers or Gladiators as your own?
