Everybody knows President Biden has a speaking problem. It used to be one rooted in gaffes. “Oh, that’s just Joe” was the standard line of explanation from his defenders on occasions that ranged from his blurting of racial insensitivities to his characterization of high I.Q. in the face of outed serial plagiarism.
Oh, that’s just Joe.
His gaffes have turned a more serious corner. By all appearances, “just Joe” is a fruitcake.
People are definitely noticing.
“There’s something seriously going on with this man right now,” said Rep. Ronny Jackson, Texas Republican and former White House physician for both former Presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama, in a recent interview on Fox News with host Sean Hannity. “And, you know, I think that he’s either going to resign, or they’re going to convince him to resign from office at some point in the near future for medical issues, or they’re going to have to use the 25th Amendment to get rid of this man right now.”
That’s not far-fetched — not even to “just Joe.”
In December 2020, during an interview with CNN and while answering a question about how he planned to resolve a dispute he was having with Kamala Harris, Biden said this: “I will develop some disease and say I have to resign.”
The fix is in. The fix is in? Has this truly been the plan of the Democrats from the get-go — to use Biden’s name recognition and face fame and good ol’ boy “just Joe,” “just a Joe of the people” persona to win the White House so as to stuff it and staff it with behind-the-scenes socialists and communists and globalists and collectivists who will then busily work from within to undermine both Constitution and country?
Of course it is.
Of course it was.
But his obvious cognitive dysfunction is not amusing. The world is watching; the world’s anti-American forces are watching.
On a CNN town hall talk with host Don Lemon recently — here’s Just Joe: “And the question is whether or not we should be in a position where you, ah, um, are — why can’t the, the, the experts say, ‘We know that this virus is in fact,’ ah, um, ah, it’s, it’s going to be — or excuse me, we, we, we know why all the drugs approved do not temporarily prove, but permanently approved.”
That’s just one example of the president’s failure to speak.
Yes. We’re beyond gaffes now. We’ve turned the corner on corny, gone down the road on painful to watch, and plowed headlong into the field of buttercups called alarming and frightening. This is America’s leader. This is the leader of the free world.
He’s suffering some serious mental defects, so serious that the White House can’t even completely cover the dysfunction.
It won’t be long before Harris takes the helm. This is not as devastating as it sounds. After all, Biden is not leading now. Biden, Harris — whomever. The puppet masters, in this administration, will stay the same. The string pullers in this White House will stay in their secret places of power.
And that speaks volumes about the Democratic Party’s true concerns for America — and people.
