Former Vice President Joe Biden joined five other 2020 presidential candidates in Cedar Rapids, IA on Saturday. The event, a forum on labor issues, was hosted by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters union. In the C-SPAN clip below, Biden suffers another one of those embarrassing moments he has become so famous for.
Newsmax’ John Cardillo posted the clip on twitter with the caption, “At this point, it’s just cruelty pretend that Biden is all there.”
Cardillo is not wrong. Biden’s gaffes have been piling up. And they’re happening more frequently.
But the real takeaway from this post was one reader’s reaction to it. He wrote: “I wasn’t planning on voting for Biden but then I heard him talk about stacking spaghetti sauce and I have to admit I like his position on this issue.”

Can you imagine the presidential debates if Biden wins the nomination?
On a more serious note, Biden’s mental decline has now become obvious to most. One has to wonder why anyone thought it was a good idea for Biden to enter the race last spring. His symptoms have grown worse since declaring his candidacy in April, and by the time of the debates, another nine or ten months will have passed.
If elected, he would take office in thirteen months and his term would end five years from now. I am not a doctor, but I’ve watched relatives progress through the stages of decline. Unfortunately, once it starts, it cannot be stopped. Although I feel sympathy for Biden, he is well past his prime and should not be running for the U.S. presidency.
Actually, even when he was in his prime…never mind.
