Macho, Macho Man: Biden Challenges Trump to 'Compare Our Physical and Mental Acuity'

Okay, perhaps I dated myself with the “Macho, Macho Man” reference, but roll with me, here. And no, I was not a fan of the Village People, but I digress. Anyway, on today’s episode of “Joe Being Joe,” we revisit something typically-Joe the Democrat presidential nominee said in a “60 Minutes” interview on Sunday.

As those who follow Joe know, he’s apt to say something typically-Joe every time his lips are moving. As we also know, Biden’s mental acuity is challenged on a regular basis, as well, given that he often forgets which state he’s in, says stuff like COVID has killed “200 million Americans,” and recently referred to Donald Trump as “George.” Twice.

For his part, Trump is as merciless with Biden — rightfully so — as anyone when it comes to the 77-year-old Democrat’s apparent lack of energy and plethora of mental slip-ups. Again, we’re talking about a guy who confuses his wife with his sister, calls the U.S. Constitution “the thing,” and thinks Corn Pop was a “bad dude.”

So on Sunday, Biden told CBS host Norah O’Donnell that he’d be more than happy to challenge Trump to a “physical and mental acuity” throwdown. As provided by CNS News, here’s a transcript of how it went down.

Norah O’Donnell: “If elected, you would be the oldest president in American history.”

Joe Biden: “I’m in good shape.”

O’Donnell: “78 years old. 82 after four years. Donald Trump says you have dementia and it’s getting worse.”

Biden: “Hey, the same guy who thought that the 9/11 attack was a 7-Eleven attack. He’s talking about dementia? All I can say to the American people is watch me, is see what I’ve done, is see what I’m gonna do. Look at me. Compare our physical and mental acuity. I’m happy to have that comparison.”

Is this pay-per-view-quality entertainment, or what?

Incidentally, it’s interesting that ol’ Joe would bring up 7-Eleven. Let’s jump into the Wayback Machine and go all the way back to 2006 for a classic Joe moment, shall we?

Upon walking into a 7-Eleven store, Joe said:

“In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.”

The look on his face after he said it was priceless.

I was thinking earlier this morning that I’m kinda gonna miss the old guy — assuming Trump wins, of course — when he finally takes off his political spurs after all these years and fades off into oblivion. Nah, I’m just messing with you — Joe’s demise is long overdue.

In related news, as my RedState colleague Sister Toldjah reported earlier today, Joe got a bit snippy with a reporter who had the audacity to ask him about his light schedule.

And in other Joe news, as I reported on Sunday in an article titled Biden Puts Major League Spin on Tiny Crowd, as Bon Jovi Plays to ’12 People and 7 Pumpkins’, Joe’s explanation of why he has such minuscule crowds was almost as funny as Biden-supporter Jon Bon Jovi trying to fire up one of those minuscule crowds.

Joe being Joe. He’s the best.
