Biden becomes more incoherent as he tries to stay relevant
The former SCHMOTUS (Schmo of The United States), V.P. Joe Biden has always been a gaffe meister, but it’s been different lately. He seems to get angry more often, and more than gaffes, there are times he speaks gibberish. Joe was on The View Tuesday, and when he was asked about the current world CoronaVirus crisis, Joe responded with nonsense. He used real words but seemed to mix them up. Joe Biden The View\He is having trouble even when he is dealing with softballs from friendly media types. I do not think the mainstream media can save him from himself at this point.
As we previewed last week, Biden started giving his own briefings to the press from his home to “counter” President Trump’s daily CoronaVirus commission pressers, keeping Americans up to date. Also from his Delaware home Biden gave a remote interview on The View to share his biggest concerns regarding the virus. Interestingly this was the same program that ripped his response to the H1N1 virus in 2009. Tuesday’s interview didn’t go so well. His phone was ringing in the background, Joe seemed “out of it.”
Co-host Sara Haines asked, “We talked about Trump saying the government would reassess the wrecked period for keeping businesses shut and people at home. Are you at all concerned as Trump said that we cannot let the cure be worse than the problem itself?” Biden answered, “We have to take care of the cure. That will make the problem worse, no matter what. No matter what.
I can hear the haters now crying that the clip was cut short, but he kept going and didn’t seem to notice his mistake — he actually doubled-down on it. Check out the video below at around the 3:20 mark.
Biden seems to initially say that the shutdown needs to continue to “flatten the curve” but then goes off on a tangent that is unrelated to the economic consequences of a long-term shut-down of business insisting that more testing should be done, more medical gear should be provided, an increased number of hospital beds in cities should be provided, and additional assistance for rural areas that don’t have Intensive Care Unit
He couldn’t seem to follow a simple question about government recommendations that, if they continue, could cause massive job loss, despair, and plunge people into poverty.
It was kind of embarrassing.
