Joe Biden’s Sadly Obvious Mental Decline

Posted on | March 26, 2020 | No Comments

 

Joe Biden is the presumed presidential nominee of the Democratic Party. He is also 77 years old and unable to speak coherently:

Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden spent the past two days conducting blunder-filled TV interviews from his home — and a virtual press briefing Wednesday where he said he doesn’t want to debate Bernie Sanders anymore.
“Do you think there should be another debate in April, and would you participate?” Biden was asked during his remote press conference.
“My focus is just dealing with this crisis right now. I haven’t thought about any more debates,” Biden said. “I think we’ve had enough debates. I think we should get on with this.”
The briefing followed a media blitz on Tuesday during which the gaffe-prone former vice president lived up to his reputation.
“We have to take care of the cure. That will make the problem worse no matter what. No matter what,” Biden said on ABC’s “The View” when asked to respond to President Trump’s desire to restart the economy amid the coronavirus ­outbreak.
Biden went on to discuss “flattening the curve.”
“We know you have to — you’re tired of hearing the phrase, you got to flatten that curve where it’s going up like this, people getting it, and then it comes down. We got to flatten that curve and we got to make sure that once, in fact, we have this under control, it doesn’t come back,” he sputtered.
Speaking a few hours later with Jake Tapper on CNN, Biden was criticized for coughing into his hand just moments after telling the host that he had not been tested for coronavirus because he was feeling OK.

It is difficult to describe how badly Biden performed in these appearances, where he got nothing but softball questions, yet repeatedly failed to express himself without stumbling. The elderly Democrat also kept coughing on camera, suggesting his health may be precarious.

(Hat-tip: Ace of Spades.)

There has been talk that Democrats may draft New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo to substitute for the ailing, addled, elderly Biden. Can you imagine the reaction of the Bernie Bros — who have already warned they would sit out the election in November if Biden is nominated — if Democrats pull a Cuomo switcheroo at the convention?
