Not so fast Joe.
Joe Biden is once again controlled but this time it came from someone very close to him.
As Joe Biden was talking to reporters he forgot to maintain social distancing so then his wife came and yanked him away.
It seems like the usual string holders of Biden took a day off and Jill had to do their jobs.

As it was happening Biden looked confused.
Jill countenance didn’t look too joyful either and immediately left after pulling him away from the reporters.
You would think someone who preaches about social distancing wouldn’t need to be physically moved to do so.
Fox News covered the incident:
Joe Biden’s wife Jill Biden, had to literally pull the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee away from a group of reporters on Monday, in an effort to maintain social distancing in the lead up to November’s election.
Biden was answering questions about the fate of next week’s upcoming presidential debate between him and President Trump after Trump tested positive for COVID-19, when Jill Biden walked up behind the former vice president and grabbed his arms to pull him away from the press, as he was speaking.
Looks like Jill is the puppeteer running the show and Joe is just a long for the ridehttps://t.co/Uhh5QIlWOp

The Daily Mail chipped in too:
Jill Biden was taking no chances with the coronavirus on Monday, steering her husband Joe away from reporters in Delaware when she felt he was not maintaining enough distance for safety.
The couple were headed for the campaign trail in Florida, and Joe stopped to talk to reporters before flying to Miami.
As he was speaking, Jill walked up behind him and grabbed his arms, pulling him away from the reporters.
‘I’m sorry,’ Joe said, as Jill repositioned him.
