There’s a reason Donald Trump’s allies have spent the past two and a half years constantly pushing made up phony narratives about President Joe Biden supposedly going senile. They’ve had to watch Trump come off as increasingly senile in his every public appearance, and they’ve felt compelled to run counter programming against it.
But the mainstream media (on both sides) has been hesitant to admit that Trump is visibly going senile, because if they admit it’s happening, they won’t be able to get ratings by hyping him as supposedly viable for 2024. So Trump’s senility just gets ignored, even though it’s a huge deal that the Republican “frontrunner” is deep into dementia.
But now the Wall Street Journal is finally beginning to do public polling on Trump’s cognitive decline, meaning we might finally get the long overdue public discourse we deserve about Trump’s senility.
Trump seems worried about what’s coming. Yesterday he offered to take another cognitive test, and today he posted this diatribe: “The one thing I never understood about politics? Who the hell would ever vote for Crooked Joe Biden? Do they watch him at press conferences? He can’t put two sentences together.”
The more frantically and hyperbolically Trump tries to falsely paint President Biden as being senile, the more of a giveaway it is that Trump is worried about his own declining mental faculties. At this point the only thing Trump still has going for him is that he has just enough brain cells left to actually be aware that he’s going downhill fast. That is, unless these posts are being made by his handlers, and Trump really is too far gone to understand how far gone he is.
