Joe Biden's presidential campaign called a lid on in-person events at 9:23 a.m. on Saturday – the seventh pre-noon "lid call" in the last 14 days, and the 11th in the past 26 days of September.

Saturday's "lid" was reportedly called to allow time for debate preparation and two virtual appearances later in the day.

The Hill's media reporter Joe Concha challenged "the argument Biden has been debate prepping," saying, "it should be noted [Biden] told a reporter on Sept. 23 he hadn't started the process at that point." Concha also asked, "Is this a preview of a Biden presidency?"

A graphic from Floridian press reporter Mona Salama records the dates and times of all of the Biden campaigns "lid calls" in September, most of which were officially called between 8 and 10 a.m.

Former Republican House Speaker and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said "you can't ‘throw a lid' on being President for even one hour."
