While Joe Biden, the senator, was never going to discover a tear in the space-time continuum or demonstrate the feasibility of cold fusion he was engaging and could string together a N-V-N sentence…even if the sentence was total nonsense. Joe Biden, 2020 Edition, is none of those things. He is confused, disoriented, and combative. His public statements are bizarre, disjointed, and outlandish. Even Democrat establishment figures have begun to doubt Biden’s mental abilities while the mainstream press, which has devoted a few hundred hours to publicizing rando psychiatrists and psychologists to opine on President Trump’s psyche, has averted their collective eyes and refused to mention the obvious: Joe Biden is rapidly sliding into a clinical state of senility.
While the media refuse to take note, President Trump has decided that he will. This is from today’s press conference:
Trump responds to a reporter's question about Biden's tweet… "he didn't write that" and said that Biden doesn't understand what he's watching.

QUESTION: Joe Biden actually just attacked you in a tweet. I don’t know if you have seen it.
TRUMP: He just what?
QUESTION: Attacked you. He just said–make
TRUMP: He didn’t write anything. Look he has people, he has professionals from the Democrats riding.
QUESTION: Mr. President let me just read what he said. He said, “Donald Trump is not responsible for the coronavirus, but he is responsible for failing to prepare our nation to respond to it.” How do you respond to that, sir?
This is the tweet:
Donald Trump is not responsible for the coronavirus, but he is responsible for failing to prepare our nation to respond to it.

This tweet is such noxious bullsh**. Had President Trump listened to Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer he would not have instituted a travel ban on China while the WHO was still claiming that there was no evidence of person-to-person transmission. US labs would not have been working on a vaccine for the virus since before the first cases were reported in Washington. The fact that the virus has been checked…and I will say the jury is still out on whether the actions taken by the government were prudent or the equivalent of amputating a hand to cure a hangnail…is due to the leadership and actions of the administration.
Trump follows up on this question with a Trump insta-classic riff, intentional or not, on Obama’s ‘you didn’t build that.’
TRUMP: He didn’t write that. That was done by a Democrat operative. He doesn’t write–make a doesn’t–he is probably not even watching right now and if he is he doesn’t understand what he is watching. Just so you understand it was very nice what they wrote and I don’t know you know they released it is a strange time, sort of a strange time to release something like that but he admitted I was right and if you read the Federalist story which most of you won’t because you don’t want to but you would learn something because it goes to a chart, times.
I was early. Dr. Fauci I think–I don’t think he’s changed his mind but he said it was a very important step when we stopped China from coming in from the specific area that was heavily infected. We would have a whole different thing right now.
So I don’t really know what Joe Biden said. I don’t really care and again I see every once in a while, I will say something I will make a speech and then it will be critiqued, and I will get this beautiful brilliant critique. Joe Biden didn’t write that. Joe Biden didn’t write that. He wished he did but he didn’t. Go ahead please in the back.
Partisanship aside, Joe Biden is obviously suffering from a staggering mental decline. He is barely lucid or aware. If the Democrats want him as their candidate, I’m certainly fine with it, but let’s not pretend any longer. Joe Biden is not up to the rigors of the campaign trail and certainly not up to the rigors of the presidency. The failure of the national media to cover his obvious unsuitability is just one more example of how our national media have stopped reporting news and have become junior members of the Democrat coalition.
