This was supposed to be Joe Biden’s big moment. But not everything worked out according…Read More →
Donald Trump and his allies are attacking Joe Biden over the former Vice President’s alleged cognitive decline.
Biden tried to put the issue to rest in a press conference.
But then Joe Biden admitted something about his mental state that caused voters to reconsider his campaign.
Everyone has noticed that Joe Biden has become scarce over the past few months.
His press conferences are short and he only answers easy questions, he’s promised to halt his live campaign events, and even his media appearances aren’t constant.
This has limited the mistakes that Biden has shown to the public.
Sure, Biden seemed to forget the name of the coronavirus and forgot the size of the stimulus bill he claimed to spend every day running by a factor of ten, and claimed that black people weren’t really black unless they voted for him, but at least his slip-ups hadn’t been a daily occurrence.
Yet still 38% of voters think Biden has dementia and 61% of voters think it’s important for Biden to address the issue, Rasmussen Reports found in a poll of likely voters.
“Nearly four-out-of-10 voters believe Joe Biden has dementia. Most voters, including just over half of Democrats, feel it is important for the likely Democratic presidential nominee to publicly address the issue.” Rasmussen Reports said, publishing the results.
The Biden campaign clearly read the numbers because the day after the poll was released, Biden tried to assure voters about his mental fitness during a press conference.
“Some have speculated that you are subject to some degree of cognitive decline,” the reporter said. “I’m 65, I don’t have word recollection that I used to have, I forgot my train of thought from time to time. You got 12 years on me, sir.”
“Have you been tested for some degree of cognitive decline?” the reporter asked.
“I’ve been tested and I’m constantly tested,” Biden responded. “Look, all you got to do is watch me and I can hardly wait to compare my cognitive capability to the cognitive capability of the man I’m running against.”
The problem with Biden’s answer is that no one would be constantly tested for their cognitive capability if there weren’t concerns, and it’s not just his age making people wonder if he has dementia.
Bernie Sanders is a year older than Biden, and while he may be a radical socialist, he has always appeared mentally sharp.
The same cannot be said about Biden.
He doesn’t seem to be mentally sharp and seems to be heavily relying on staff; if he becomes president, who will really be calling the shots?
The Democrats are trying to keep Biden out of the limelight for a reason, and saying once on camera that he’s been tested is not fooling anyone.
