Even among the most ardent of Democrats, there appears to be very little enthusiasm about Joe Biden waltzing right into the 2020 presidential nomination.
That’s because the former Vice President doesn’t seem to be all there sometimes. His campaign events have grown increasingly strange, if nothing else, with Biden calling one attendee “a damn liar”, and another a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier” just a few weeks later.
And that was before he belittled a Detroit factory worker as “full of [expletive]”.
Now, a global pandemic has curtailed any and all of the in-person campaigning that Biden can, leading the presumptive nominee to stray into daytime television with an appearance on The View. When asked about the current global health emergency, Biden responded with absolute and unintelligible gibberish.
Co-host Sara Haines asked, “We talked about Trump saying the government would reassess the wrecked period for keeping businesses shut and people at home. Are you at all concerned as Trump said that we cannot let the cure be worse than the problem itself?”
Biden responded, “We have to take care of the cure. That will make the problem worse, no matter what. No matter what. We know what has to be done. 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. So we should be focusing on getting all the help necessary in terms of testing, in terms of access to the gear that our first responders, our doctors, our nurses need in treating people.”
The timing couldn’t be worse for Biden’s public perception, with a number of young Democratic voters publicly declaring their belief that Biden is not mentally fit for the office of the Presidency, and that they will be looking elsewhere come November.
