For much of the 2020 primary season, Democrats have been treading nervously around the subject of Joe Biden’s mental health.
The septuagenarian candidate has now become the party’s presumptive nominee for the general election, coming in November, but his performance on the campaign trail has even the most ardent Democrats concerned over his ability to lead should he wind up in the White House. Not only has Biden been full of gibberish, but he’s been offensively angry as well.
At one in-person town hall before the coronavirus lockdowns began, Biden called an attendee both “fat” and “a damn liar”. Just weeks later, he referred to a female voter as a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier”. And, in the days leading up to the COVID-19 crisis, Biden told a a Detroit factory worker that he was “full of sh**”.
Interspersed among these offensive claims were a number of gibberish-filled rants as well, including one in which the former Vice President suggested that America focus on finding ways to transport wind across the nation.
Now, having suffered enough of this nonsense, President Trump is telling it like it is.
When asked during a Sunday interview with WJLA what Biden’s strongest feature was as a political opponent, Trump noted that he could have said experience but explained why he did not think it was appropriate.
“Well, I would have said experience, but he doesn’t really have experience because I don’t think he remembers what he did yesterday,” Trump said. “So how is that experience? He’s been there a long time. He was never known as a smart person.”
And that’s not all…
The president then started by saying that Biden is “not mentally sharp enough to be president.” He then went on to say that the former vice president has problems with China and Russia, but then jumped back to attacking Biden’s intellect.
“Biden doesn’t know, I mean, he doesn’t know he’s alive,” Trump continued. “I’m against somebody. Think of it. I’m against somebody that can’t answer simple questions. I’ve never seen anything like it, but here’s what I am against. I’m against a very powerful party, the Democrats, and they can take this glass of water and say that’s your candidate.”
With less than six months to go until the election, the Democrats are quickly running out of time to replace Biden on the 2020 ticket.
