Joe Biden is not well. That marks one of several dozen times I’ve opened an article in that fashion or similar, yet those words have become no less relevant with time. The former VP is only getting worse and that was on full display today as he attempted to give a speech to auto workers.
To be clear, when I say “full display,” I mean that it went beyond just the clips I’m about to share. As RedState reported earlier, Biden forgot who Mitt Romney was while getting off his plane, instead calling him “the Mormon.” How do you forget the man the top of your previous ticket ran against for re-election to the highest office in the land? The answer is that normal people do not forget that.
But Biden is not normal. Nothing about this is normal.
He sounds more and more like my grandpa before his dementia diagnosis every day. https://t.co/lHh7IpuzFO

As I said, though, things got progressively worse throughout the day. Once he finally got to his speech, the “gaffes” began to total up to the point where you wondered whether his handlers would just pull the plug. Here’s a taste of how that went.

People running for President don’t forget what office they are running for. This is also not the first time he’s done this. He’s actually made this mistake multiple times. An inability to distinguish details like this and seemingly forgetting what time period he’s in are not good signs for his mental ability.
Then this happened.
He’s fine guys. This is fine. https://t.co/ORiujVh9ub

For the record, that website does not exist. It’s also extremely odd that he would have forgotten already which way he came in and where he’s supposed to go after the speech. That kind of stuff is self-evident to those with all their mental faculties. You came in the door on the side of the stage? That’s where you go out. It’s not a maze, it’s a small auditorium.
But these are common occurrences for Biden. They also scream that he’s got early onset dementia and needs professional help. That his wife continues to push him into this, along with his handlers, is just bad form at this point. What we do know is that there’s next to no chance he finishes a term if he wins in November. That means Kamala Harris is the defacto top of the ticket. Vote accordingly.
