The Media Finally Notice Joe Biden's Dementia, Sort of Anyway

Isn’t this timing just perfect? On the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration, the media are finally offering reports that offer a glimpse into his dementia ridden world. This is a man who can’t remember where he’s at half the time, much less is he capable of actually leading the country.

Here’s Politico noting his decline without realizing they are noting it. That or they are simply unwilling to admit the real reason.

For higher-profile remarks, he’d obsessively rehearse portions until he committed them to memory. And at times through the various iterations of outlining remarks, Biden could grow downright ornery.

“I would never say this,” Biden once snapped at an aide, aghast over the prepared remarks he was reviewing, according to a person in the room during a speech prep session last year. “Where did you get this from?’”

The aide explained that Biden had just said it in a public speech a couple of weeks earlier.

Such are the hallmarks and unpleasantries that are the sausage-making of speech writing with Biden.

Yes, I’m sure Biden getting angry and yelling at a speech writer that he’d never say something he literally said two weeks ago is totally just about the sausage-making of speech writing. Conversely, this guy’s mind is totally gone, he often forgets where he’s at and things he done, and the anger is yet another sign that he’s got dementia.

Anyone watching Biden on the campaign trail saw it. He’d lash out at voters, use weird, archaic analogies (as if he didn’t know what year it was), and generally make an ass of himself  often. For a period, there was a new video of Biden showing off his mental decline almost every day. He simply couldn’t control it. Once the election ended, they were able to put him back in the box, to the extent that he was ever out of it prior. He only gave a few short speeches, sometimes roaming the stage as if he was confused, and took almost no questions from the press. Our compliant media were more than happy to go along with the strategy.

Now he’s president, and no one should have any faith he can do anything but operate as a figurehead. It’s Kamala Harris’ world now, and we are just living in it. Biden couldn’t even remember some of the names of his appointments over the last few months. Anyone think he was actually the one who chose them? Yeah, me neither.

Politico’s report would have been a lot more useful had it come before the election. It would have provided more evidence for what we all see. Yet, no one in the media sought to expose Biden’s obvious mental collapse when it would have mattered. Instead, they covered for him and called them conspiracy theories. They were willing to help put an invalid in the White House if it meant spiting Donald Trump. The country will now pay the price for their rank partisanship.
