Joe Biden says … well, we don’t really know
Creepy Joe Biden is beginning to emerge from the basement again, and the results have not been auspicious thus far.
Cut to Philadelphia, Wednesday. He was sporting the de rigueur mask, but it was dangling loosely from his left ear, as if he’d forgotten it. That made his statement attacking President Trump (I think) all the more bizarre.
All dialogue guaranteed verbatim:
“You know, the rapidly rising uh, um, uh, in with the — with the — I don’t know, uh uh,” he said, finally looking up in utter confusion from his notes.
“His, his just inability to focus on any federal responsibility,” Biden mumbled, and I don’t believe he’s been seen outside the basement since.
That latest stumble got a good leaving alone from approximately 99% of the media’s Democrat stenographers. So the next day the Trump campaign manager put out an email demanding that the press’s Democrat rump swabs “stop protecting Biden.”
“The failure to expose the American people to these rambling displays of incoherence, ineptitude and forgetfulness is depriving voters of a clear picture of Biden’s inability to execute the duties of the office he seeks.”
Which is exactly why Biden’s comrades in the media are doing their damnedest to keep him under wraps.
Safely back in the basement, Dementia Joe went on one of those late-night shows hosted by a reputed comedian from some foreign land. This time, he basically accused POTUS of wanting to steal the election. (Projection, anyone?)
What made that sound bite interesting was that it was edited — it’s right there in the official network transcript, EDIT, which is not often done, unless you’re trying to cover up, say, incoherence, ineptitude and forgetfulness, among other things.
But See-BS network had no response, or defense for its jump cuts. Being a fellow traveler means never having to say you’re sorry.
That’s OK, though. Some of us do keep a log of Joe Biden’s Basement Tapes. Let’s go straight to this week’s video. He’s offering some suggestions here for police reform:
“The idea that instead of standing there and teaching a cop who’s an unarmed person coming at ’em with a knife or something, shoot ’em in the leg instead of the heart is a very different thing. There’s a lot of different things that can change.”
Yes, Joe did mention an unarmed person with a knife. And he suggested aiming for an appendage rather than the body — forget 500 years of lessons in how to shoot a firearm.
Before Joe fled the basement for his rendezvous with destiny in Philadelphia, he did a conference with some civil rights leaders from Delaware. He warned them about their own upcoming march that evening.
“The act of protesting should never be allowed to overtech — overshadow the reason for the protest. The acts of protesting should, you know, should never be allowed to overshadow the reason for the protest.”
After babbling for a few seconds about his own upcoming trip to Pennsylvania, he glanced back down at his notes for a wrap up: “But we can’t allow the protesting to overshadow the purpose of the protest.”
Most of the time you can sort of figure out what Biden is getting at. But sometimes his babbling … overshadows, shall we say, everything else. This is Joe on Trump’s flight ban:
“Despite a litany of appeals from many people including me back in January not to let American lives and the U.S. economy on the world hang on his confidence quote the Chinese word.”
And that was it. Quote the Chinese word.
He likes to cite the Founding Fathers. Who can forget this earlier soaring rhetoric: “We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women created by — you know, you know, the thing.”
He returned to those eternal verities this week: “The Constitution says all men and women are created equal.”
Actually, no, it doesn’t say that, but hey, he’s been around a long time, as he reminisced with the black leaders:
“I got educated by the NAACP starting back in 1970 as a Congressman, we were trying — excuse me, as a councilman.”
Congress, City Council —what difference, at this point, does it make, to coin a phrase? Incidentally, he never “served” in the U.S. House, only in the Senate.
Then there was the evening he took the late train from Union Station to Wilmington, a rambling journey down memory lane that I can best describe in three words: non compos mentis. Think Grandpa Simpson on a bad day.
Alas, the Amtrak delirium runs maybe 300 words and you have to experience it all. Maybe next time. So I’ll just leave you with one final thought from Dementia Joe himself.
Quote the Chinese word.
