Don’t forget, Joe Biden can’t remember
Just when you think you’ve heard it all, Dementia Joe Biden criticizes somebody else’s memory.
It happened Monday in Ohio, when a TV reporter in Cincinnati mentioned a recent Gallup poll that indicated 56% of the respondents believed they are better off economically now than under what Joe calls “the O’Biden-Bama administration.”
Joe appeared unfamiliar with the poll but then, he’s unfamiliar with a lot of things these days.
All dialogue guaranteed verbatim:
“They think – 54% of the American people believe they’re better off economically than they were under our administration? Well, their memory is not very good, quite frankly.”
Their memory is not very good? Joe couldn’t remember the poll number – 56% – that he’d heard from the reporter maybe five seconds earlier.
But Joe’s been having more memory lapses lately than James Comey, although he’s not even under oath.
Just the other day, he was babbling about the Democrats’ well-documented disdain for Amy Coney Barrett because of her Catholic faith.
“You may remember,” he said, “I got in trouble when we were running against the senator who was a Mormon, uh the governor, okay, and I took him on anybody no one’s faith is to be questioned.”
Well, at least Joe didn’t call Pierre Delecto “George Romney.” And it isn’t like he’s the first hack to forget Willard M. Romney’s name. Remember future jailbird John Lakian at that 1994 GOP gubernatorial debate calling Mitt “Mr. Mormon?”
Donald Trump has been watching his opponent’s stumbling and bumbling. This was one of the president’s observations Monday:
“Mitt can’t be thrilled about this! Joe also said yesterday he’s running for the U.S. Senate (again) and totally forgot where he was (wrong State!).”
Yep, that last reference to a pair of Biden’s tweets, so he probably had nothing to do with that bit of confusion. His first tweet began, “I’m in Erie, Pennsylvania, to discuss, my plans to build back better. Tune in.”
A minute later he tweeted: “I’m in Toledo, Ohio, to discuss my plans. …”
Ohio is a real problem for Dementia Joe. In the primaries, he confused Ohio with Iowa.
And Monday, he also forgot how many times President Trump has run for president.
“Ohio and Florida are two critically important states that Trump won significantly the last two times.”
The last two times? What a second, how the hell does POTUS get off running for a third term? Whatever happened to the 22nd Amendment? Besides, I thought that two elections ago, the O’Biden-Bama ticket was running against the Mormon governor, er senator, you know, the thing.
As for Biden’s confusion about the office he’s seeking, there was this: “You know we have to come together. That’s why I’m running I’m running as a proud Democrat for the Senate.”
He’s had other problems lately reminiscing about his early years in the Senate, after his first election, in 1972 (although last week he claimed he was first elected “180 years ago”). He recalled after that first election “interviewing for my staff using uh Sen. Kennedy’s uh whip office.”
Uh, no. Sen. Kennedy wasn’t the Democrat whip in 1972. After putting the blonde in the pond at Chappaquiddick, Teddy lost the job to Sen. Robert Byrd, the former Exalted Cyclops of the Ku Klux Klan whose eulogy Biden delivered when the white supremacist Democrat died a decade ago.
But it hasn’t all been a trip down Memory Lane, or maybe in Joe’s case it’s No-Memory Lane. As he said last week:
“Everywhere I’ve been hearing all over the county, you’re trying your breast but it never feels like enough.”
Your breast never feels like enough? This, from a candidate who recently blasted the GOP for the high cost of “prescription jugs.” Who attacks “President Donald Hump” and talks about the need for “economic intercourse.”
So how do you get lucky with the economic intercourse issue? Joe knows. You boost the minimum wage.
“A 15-million min, uh, a 15-thousand dollar” – laughs – “a 15-dollar minimum wage. I’m dreaming here.”
Dreaming, or hallucinating?
And then, of course, there’s the nomination of Judge Barrett for the Supreme Court. In a pattern repeated endlessly over the past four years, a Democrat accuses the Republicans of exactly what they’re doing, or would like to do if they get the chance.
Take it away, Dementia Joe, and don’t worry about repeating yourself.
“The only court packing going on right now is going on with Republicans packing the court now. It’s not constitutional what they’re doing. We should be focused on what’s happening right now” – cough – “and the fact is the only packing going on is this court is being packed now by the Republicans.”
Say goodnight Joe.
“Where am I going?” he said the other day, as he wandered away from the podium, maskless. “Am I going this way? Thanks everybody. See ya pal. Thanks a million. Thank you.”
May we quote you on that, Mr. Vice President?
