If there’s one thing that we can all expect from a public appearance by Joe Biden, it’s at least one instance of pure and unadulterated gibberish.
This isn’t unique to the 2020 race – Biden has been well known for his gaffes and misnomers – but this election cycle has certainly seen the former veep up the ante of the ridiculous mixups he’s been so fond of.
Then to top it all off, Biden has been showing his temper far more often than previously, having called one town hall attendee both “fat” and “a damn liar” just weeks before telling another that she was a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier”.
This has led many to believe that the Biden-Trump debates that are on the horizon will be messy, unkempt affairs where moderators are charged with getting actual answers out of the former Vice President while reeling in the enthusiasm and bombast of the incumbent Commander in Chief.
Still, Biden is sauntering into this all-important segment of the campaign with the gusto of a man who’s never misspoken in his life.
Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden said he can “hardly wait” to compare his cognitive ability with President Donald Trump’s in upcoming debates. Meanwhile, the New York Times does not appear to share Biden’s confidence in taking on Trump and is demanding preconditions for debates.
Last week, at his first press conference in three months, Biden was asked by Fox News’s Doug McKelway if he had been tested for any degree of cognitive decline, to which he responded, “I’ve been tested, I’m constantly tested. Look, all you’ve got to do is watch me and I can hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I’m running against.”
All we know for sure is that the television ratings will be through the roof.
