Frustrated by the rather childish and amateur Trump campaign ads on my Facebook newsfeed, I asked whether Donald Trump was running for president of the United States or president of his fifth grade student council. Not only does he use the same repetitive nonsense about Joe Biden losing his cognitive abilities, the production value of these ads is terrible. I’m probably not alone in this either – seeing that it’s a desperate and hollow attack that doesn’t distract from how woefully incompetent Donald Trump has been as president.
When Biden himself was being interviewed on television about Donald Trump’s latest scandal involving Russia – namely, Trump’s attempts to plead ignorance on the whole thing – he decided to go there and ask if Trump’s memory was okay. Biden pointed out: “This president talks about cognitive ability. He doesn’t seem to be cognitively aware of what’s going on. He either reads and/or gets briefed on important issues and he forgets it, or he doesn’t think it’s necessary that he needs to know it.”
This is a serious concern that Palmer Report has been asking for awhile, and it’s time that the mainstream media starts to ask it as well. Joe Biden pushed even further, asking why Trump didn’t check with the intelligence communities to see if the issue had been resolved, which means he’s either physically incapable of performing his duties as president, or dangerously corrupt, though the majority of our readers have probably believed it to be a combination of both of these things for a long time.
When President Reagan sought re-election and the subject of his age came up at a debate, he famously quipped that he would refuse to exploit his opponent’s “youth and inexperience” – a reply that even got a laugh from his opponent, former Vice President Mondale. Many people remember that as the moment when it was clear Reagan would win. For Joe Biden, this may have been one of those moments.
