Biden’s gaffes bring his struggles to light
Like the geriatric lady in the old TV commercial, Dementia Joe Biden has fallen and he can’t get up.
Of course, in that instantly viral video Friday, after the three tumbles going up (not down) the stairs, “President” did finally manage, unlike the old lady, to limp unsteadily onto Air Force One.
But perhaps even more disturbing than the falls or his doddering, unsteady walk from Marine One to the Boeing 747 was what happened when he reached those treacherous boarding stairs on the tarmac.
From the back, you could see him look down, apparently in either confusion or trepidation, or both.
Finally, staring at the ground, Biden saluted the empty stairs. After which he began his painful climb.
According to the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS), those suffering from dementia “are more likely to experience problems with mobility, balance and muscle weakness.”
A picture is worth a thousand words. And Friday’s indicated how far the 46th president has already slipped at age 78. That day, he was on his way to Atlanta, to visit the Centers for Disease Control, which at the White House he recently called “the CD.”
Last week he made a brief address to the nation on the virus he’s repeatedly called “COVID 9.” He began his speech:
“Good evening my fellow Americans. Tolight I’d like to talk to you about where we are.”
As if Joe has a clue about where he is, tolight or any other light, I mean night.
Since our last Weekend at Biden’s column, he has again described Kamala Harris as “President Harris.”
After earlier calling Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin “Sen. Austin,” this week he totally forgot his name:
“I want to thank the sec the the uh the former general I keep calling him general my my uh the guy who runs the outfit over there …”
The outfit over there? That would be the Pentagon. Remember, Biden is the same guy who during the campaign forgot the name of the Declaration of Independence — “you know, the thing.”
Also last week, Biden gave an interview to a fawning Democrat operative on ABC News and got testy when asked about the “children” (most of whom are between the ages of 15 and 17) invading the southern border with their hands out.
Despite the insanity of his administration’s open-borders policy, Biden angrily defended the chaos and lawlessness he had pledged to bring back during his so-called campaign.
“What do you do with an unaccompanied child that comes to the border? Do you repeat what Trump did? Take them from their mother?”
Um, if they’re “unaccompanied,” Mr. President, that means they’re not with their mothers.
But this is the same guy who during the campaign sternly told police that when confronted with “an unarmed person coming at them with a knife or something,” the cops should “shoot them in the leg.”
You know, like Roy Rogers and Hopalong Cassidy used to do when confronted with an “unarmed” person coming at them with a knife.
On St. Patrick’s Day, Biden reminisced about his years as veep, when he said he’d have “a breakfast at my home, the vice president’s residence with leading Irish Americans.”
After that March 17 breakfast, he continued, they’d all head to the White House “and then we’d go up to the United States Capitol where the Speaker of the House starting with Tip O’Neill would put on an event as well.”
For the record Joe Biden became vice president in 2009. Tip O’Neill died in 1994.
Here are some more of Dementia Joe’s latest Greatest Hits. As always, all dialogue guaranteed verbatim:
“We need the resources of the American Rescue Pan and we need it urgently.”
“Vast majority of economists left right and center from Wall Street to the to the private private uh uh uh economic uh polling initiatives ….”
“You know that both members of the uh of the uh of of of the military uh couples can thrive while serving.”
“Our girl goal is to do everything we can to help every educator receive a shot this month.”
“The Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency youth aus-authorization.”
“Almost every single aspect would be significant would be every every if you took the pieces of this bill and broke it into all the pieces.”
“She flew too in support of combatant um combat missions.”
“And some of it is going to take an uh you know an it’s an an an intensity of purpose and mission.”
Here’s more of the NHS’s definition of dementia: “Some of these symptoms include memory loss and difficulties with thinking, problem solving, communication and language.”
Dementia Joe’s first solo press conference is supposed to be held next Thursday. What do you think the first question should be?
