“President” Biden: The Ghost Whisperer

with 4 comments

Since he entered the Democrat Primaries for the Presidential nomination in 2019, I’ve documented Joe Biden’s slow decline into a state of senile dementia, usually with numerous video clips where you can’t deny what your eyes have just seen or what your ears have just heard.

Admittedly even before senile dementia set in, Biden made gaffes. In one infamous clip from 2008, then-Senator Biden, who by that point was also Barack Obama’s vice presidential running mate, urged a Democrat member of the Missouri state senate to “Stand up Chuck, let ’em see you.” The man was in a wheelchair. But that’s probably just ignorance and a failure of his staff to brief him.

I was hardly alone in making this assessment; during the 2019-2020 Democratic presidential primary campaign season, a number of his Democratic opponents and even some in the mainstream media raised questions about Biden’s fitness to serve as president and commander in chief considering how he looked and sometimes acted confused and out of sorts while on the campaign trail.

However I’ve stopped pushing this in recent months simply because there’s almost one every other day now (“You go this way”) and it seems pointless to keep hammering a fact that’s accepted by all except partisan fanatics and shit-posting trolls.

But what occurred last week is in a class by itself.

A month ago a Republican member of Congress, Jackie Walorski, died in a car accident when her driver passed another car at high speed on a two-lane road in Indiana. As per normal the President sent his condolences to her family. As it happens Walorski was the co-chair of the House Hunger Caucus and the White House decided to have a conference on hunger, nutrition, and health, with Biden giving a speech during which he would honor her. He had notes and a teleprompter set up and even a video that would play in tribute to her. Then this happened:

You might make the same excuse here as for the “Chuck” incident in 2008, since statements of condolence are drafted up by the staff and it may not be something that a busy person remembers, or even saw.

Except that it turns out that Biden actually spoke to her family by telephone about her death back in August. How the fuck do you forget something like that just a month later?

“It’s par for the course,” Keith Walorski told The Post of Biden’s bizarre gaffe. “I feel sorry for him, really.”

“He made a phone call after my sister was killed and he was very sincere in his relaying the grief process because he’s been through that grief process, he knows all about it,” he added.

“All I’m saying right now about the president is bless his heart for trying... I don’t know what else to say. He is doing the best he can do with what he’s got right now.”

That’s an incredibly generous assessment and I suppose Joe is “trying” to cope with his dementia – with a lot of help, especially from his wife, Jill “Edith Wilson” Biden. But that doesn’t cut it as President of the United States. He’s trying to do the job – and failing – and “the best he can do” is just nowhere good enough for what the job demands. This guy has the nuclear launch codes and right now there’s a shooting war in Europe involving Russia, a nuclear power. Recall all the Lefty attacks on Reagan with the same arguments back in the 1980’s? Now it’s crickets.

Or perhaps not entirely crickets. The WH Press conference in the wake of this “gaffe” turned into a shitstorm as even the MSM reporters went after the hapless and hopeless press secretary, Jean-Pierre, and her repeated babbling of the talking point that Biden only said this because Walorski had been “at-top-of-mind” for Biden, which she clung to like a drowning woman and which demonstrated the extent of The Stupid in this WH.

For once the press wasn’t buying it. According to a lengthy video thread from Newsbusters managing editor Curtis Houck, at least six different reporters, including some from CBS News and CNN, wouldn’t let the issue go, flustering Jean-Pierre. Key reporter quotes:

“I have John Lennon top of mind just about every day but I’m not looking around for him anywhere.”

“Why don’t you just apologize? Sounds like you’re making excuses.”

“These moments of confusion are happening with increasing frequency.”

That last one is the killer line, and as another reporter noted:

It feels significant that this incident isn’t just getting the Twitter viral video treatment, but is actually getting written up in the New York Times. Joe Biden’s mental fitness is an issue and it’s time the press takes it seriously. No amount of briefing spin can change that.

Still, the MSM coverage of this was minimal, even as some of their own WH reporters hounded the Mop-Topped Muppet at the podium, and part of the reason for that minimal coverage was due to the pool reporter. That’s a rotating position and the person selected writes up a press conference for the use of all media outlets who could not be present – thousands of local media across the USA and around the world. Turns out that they were not even informed that this happened in the pool report about the actual event.

The White House print pool reporter today is Alex Nazaryan. This incident does not appear in the White House pool reports for this event. Why is that, Alex?

Oh I think I can guess why, based on Mr Nazaryan’s history:

So there he claims that he’s not saying this to defend socialism. Oh, no, no, no. He just wants to be accurate. But not accurate in his pool report about Biden showing his scary dementia. Another suckhole defender of the Democrats.

Still, after this incident the self-imposed media moratorium on questioning Biden’s mental health and state of mind appears to be officially over, because the incident was just too concerning, too eye-opening even for those in the press who had previously operated from the “insensitive” perspective on questions that have been raised about his mental fitness for over three years now.

Every time we see him out in public we are subjected to images of the US President stumbling, walking with the fragility of a man who isn’t quite in control of all of his bodily functions, trying to shake hands with people who aren’t there, looking to handlers to help him find his way off a stage or out of a room…the list just goes on and on.

But if you think we’re finally approaching the stage where even the Democrats might remove him from the Presidency I would remind you of the problems using the 25th Amendment to get rid of Biden. There’s also this problem:

She did not catch her own mistake. Kamala Harris is everything about a Vice President that the Left swore would be the case with Sarah Palin if McCain had won in 2008. If Joe is yanked and this idiot takes her place perhaps she can pull Press Secretary Jean-Pierre in as the new VP. Imagine that: not one but two Women Of Colour in the two top power positions in the USA.

And it would make Harris look smarter.

  1. Tom, I’m guessing that the black, lesbian immigrant (self description at every opportunity) can not qualify as VP because of that description.

    More likely she, being exposed as incompetent as she is, will be blamed for Biden’s gaffes so the Dems can get Biden through the elections.

    The Dems, of course, know Harris is a sure-fire loser electorally.

  4. Fuck this is sad…

    That sad hand gesture.

    Here he is at the start of the ceremony. Watch him – at the beginning of this video – looking for the mark they’re putting on the floor for him to know where to stand.

    This is how much he’s deteriorating. And you know it’s getting worse when the handlers like Jill seem to be fraying at the edges as well. She doesn’t look at all happy in her position. Even Kamala and her husband looked uneasy here. Everyone knows there’s an issue.

    Can you imagine being on his staff? “What will Joe do next?” – and how you might have to head it off.

    But here’s the thing: they’re the ones who put us in this position. Having someone in this pitiful condition in the POTUS office. I don’t feel sorry for them, I feel sorry for Americans now having to deal with the consequences of having him in this position and hurting the US this much.

    It’s only going to get worse.
