Time for Trump to smoke Joe out of his basement
Just what kind of cynical game are Democrats playing in keeping Joe Biden on their presidential ticket when everyone can see he is slipping? How long can this ruse continue?
The real news is not that Biden is failing. It's the Democrats' fraud in pretending otherwise. They know he is not mentally up to the job, and they're trying to ride it out, using the coronavirus as a cover to keep him hidden in the basement and exercising damage control each time he is flushed out.
It's undeniable, as shown by his angrily asking a black interviewer if he is a junkie when the interviewer questioned whether he'd ever taken a cognitive test. Then there was his assertion that Latinos are more diverse in their attitudes than blacks. That alone would have ended any Republican candidate. To quote Joe back to himself, "Come on, man!"
These regrettable remarks are part of Biden's long history of racially tinged comments, such as that you can't go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have an Indian accent, or that any African Americans who don't support him aren't black. Anyone paying attention has to know something is seriously wrong.
Ironically, Biden benefits somewhat from his reputation as a gaffer. It allows his protectors to claim that what we're seeing now is just the same old avuncular Joe occasionally mixing up his words or saying ridiculous things he doesn't really mean.
But do you think Biden would have a chance at remaining on the ticket if the liberal media weren't actively concealing his decline? Just imagine if President Donald Trump were displaying such obvious signs of mental confusion. It would be headline news all day every day until he was forced out of his bunker and his mettle could be tested.
Seriously, folks. This is no laughing matter. The coronavirus is no excuse for Biden not to personally campaign and show himself to the people. Any other presidential candidate would be clamoring for face time to present his case to the American people. Actually, any other Democratic presidential candidate wouldn't have to demand media attention, because they would give the candidate wall-to-wall coverage to increase his exposure. But Biden remains in the shadows.
This is rich, considering that the Democrats and the media have been railing about the integrity of "our democracy" for the last four years. Their shameless scheme to shield Biden from the public eye puts the lie to their professed concern for the integrity of our system. The media used to boast of their essential function of informing the electorate, but now they conspire to prevent the public from being informed.
This level of deceit should horrify people. It should also make us wonder what the Democrats and the media establishment know that we don't about their future plans for control of the presidency should Biden win. He simply is not fit for the job and will be progressively less so with each passing day. This is shaping up to be one of the biggest scandals of our time.
What's equally bizarre is that Biden's handlers are hiding him in plain sight. That is, everyone knows they are doing it, and few are talking about it -- publicly, at least.
