It may be time to ask ourselves whether or not Joe Biden is mentally up to the task of being President of the United States. We already have serious doubts about Biden’s supposedly “moderate” take on left-wing politics, because he seems to be more than willing to adapt some of the modern Democratic Party’s most extreme and radical ideas. And we certainly have our doubts about Biden’s stamina, his firmness of character, and his understanding of how big the economic threat from China really is. But as the gaffes pile high as the sky, we now have to wonder if the former vice president is as sharp, mentally, as our president needs to be.
This week was a particularly bad one when it comes to Biden flubbing his lines. In remarks to reporters on Saturday, Biden said: “Those kids in Parkland came up to see me when I was vice president. Lawmakers were basically cowering, not wanting to see them. They did not want to face it on camera.”
This is, of course, absurd. The Parkland shooting happened last year, well after Biden had left the vice-presidency to his successor, Mike Pence. The official story is that Biden was mixing Parkland up with Sandy Hook. Yeah, we can see that. It’s possible. And if this was an isolated instance, we’d be happy to take that excuse and move on with no further comment.
But this was far from an isolated instance, as noted by President Trump: “Joe Biden just said, ‘We believe in facts, not truth.’ Does anybody really believe he is mentally fit to be president? We are ‘playing’ in a very big and complicated world. Joe doesn’t have a clue!”
Let’s see, what else? Oh yes, there was his speech telling Asian and Hispanic voters that “poor kids are just as bright” as white ones. Because there is no such thing as a poor white kid, obviously!
Oh, and while Trump did mistakenly name “Toledo” as the city where a shooting unfolded, he was at least in the vicinity. Biden thought the shootings took place in…Michigan and Houston!?
And let’s not forget this embarrassment, also from this week: Asked by a reporter how many genders there are, Biden replied, “There are at least three.”
Asked by the reporter (who was working for Turning Point USA) to name them, Biden grew irritated.
“Don’t play games with me, kid,” he growled.
Then he grabbed the guy’s arm and said, “By the way, the first one to come out for marriage was me.”
This guy seems perfectly fit to sit in the Oval Office. No doubt about it.
