Despite All The Tricks For Biden… Reality Catches Up To Unworthy Joe At CNN “Debate” With Trump

July 6, 2024 Frontpage No Comments

By DEXTER DUGGAN

Did you hear that after Joe Biden failed so badly at his June 27 CNN debate with Donald Trump, Biden’s team said he couldn’t lift that 50-pound barbell on stage because it was the wrong kind of 50 pounds?

But, Joe, Joe, 50 pounds weighs 50 pounds, no matter what. If it’s 50 pounds of iron or 50 pounds of popcorn, it’s still 50 pounds.

Oh, said the team, well, the light reflecting off the barbell hurt his eyes and he grabbed the wrong way at it.

But, Joe, Joe, it was a dull black barbell, not shiny at all. It couldn’t have shined harshly into your eyes.

Oh, Joe got confused because the moderators spoke English, but Joe has been studying Chinese so intensely recently that comprehending English threw him. Why didn’t they speak Mandarin?

While the Biden team didn’t actually use these silly excuses I just proposed — at least, not so far as I know — the actual excuses didn’t make any more sense.

The facts that his establishment crowd have avoided ever since they turned to him in desperation for the 2020 presidential campaign — lest left-wingers’ heartthrob, the socialist Bernie Sanders, win the nomination and scare “moderates” — are even worse now than four years ago.

Biden has been decaying mentally and physically, and further-advancing age won’t make him better.

Among the inapplicable excuses, Biden’s defenders said the studio makeup gave sun-tanned Biden a pallor.

Oh, so his skin looking whiter than in reality (wait a second — someone didn’t want Biden to resemble people of color??) is what caused so much adverse reaction? Instead of his rambling, incoherent, unfinished responses?

And, as another weak excuse, they said Biden had a cold. Despite getting that healthy sun? So, makeup covering his suntan also got in the way of his brain cells operating better?

Defenders said Biden is at his best between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Eastern Time.

Well, in the first place, most full-time workers even far below Biden’s level of political success are expected to do eight hours on a shift plus lunch time. How many could expect to be hired if they said they’ll only show up for about three-quarters of a day including midday lunch? And with frequent time off and trips out of state for long weekends?

Yet Biden thinks the most responsible job in the U.S. should have hours like a retired millionaire’s? Even a lot of older millionaires stay more active than this, maybe so they can make more millions.

Maybe Biden had relished that hard work wasn’t the way needed for him to make money, but guaranteeing that peripatetic Hunter got his traveling bags filled with foreign bribes?

Biden IS a millionaire, whether gained honestly or not, and he SHOULD be retired. So why doesn’t he admit reality and step aside for the leisure time that he seems so desperate to enjoy anyway, although pretending to be a hard worker?

Moreover, how can Biden as president even make any international diplomatic and political trips without taking a full week off at his destination before he gets sufficiently oriented to the new time zone’s 10-to-4 hours so that he can deal with responsibilities there?

And it’s an embarrassing fact that Biden even often skips state dinners overseas with other international leaders, where some valuable elbow-rubbing just might get done, but he’s not up to this exertion.

It’s hard to think of any job Biden could get hired for today because of his infirmities and decay. But his phalanx — which has far more energy than their field commander — works day and night to impose four more years of control on us by a boss barely capable of getting to work, even though his bedroom, breakfast table and office are on two floors of the same Executive Mansion!

Mr. President Biden falsely has claimed publicly (not merely on a private resume sheet) to have been everything from a law professor to an 18-wheeler driver, so why not add some zest to his campaign right now by concurrently applying to be a professional football kicker?

He’ll just need one player on each side of him to hold him up, special glasses to make sure to see when the quarterback snaps the ball, an AI-guided boost to his kicking leg, a drone-powered football, and referees too blind to notice all of this unallowable assistance.

Aside from this, Biden is only inches away from carrying whatever team hires him straight into the Super Bowl.

Biden was too bashful as president to give a softball TV interview to the Super Bowl audience, but surely he’s ready to take the field to play a full season toward claiming that championship ring while also being president for four more terms (popular acclamation soon to discard the two-term presidential limit).

Amid our wide-ranging speculations here, it’s an unfortunate fact that even if Biden actually stepped aside tomorrow as president, whoever were to replace him from Democratic top ranks would be as bad as Biden on policy issues, thanks to the ongoing purge of any Democrat who didn’t hold, or refused to adopt, the far-left stands Biden takes.

There used to be plenty of pro-lifers, nationalists, and others of traditional views as Democrats, but they were forced to get in line or get out by extremists who redefined party requirements.

Probably the latest among these transitions is an open, vigorous anti-Israel line. As has become evident, considerable youth energy among Democrats isn’t merely for Palestinians but in favor of Palestinian radicals expelling and even killing the Mideast’s Jews.

So, among the political dances Biden is trying to do is assist Israel while also being hostile to it.

Just before the CNN debate, Biden took a whole week away from the White House to go to Camp David to rest, be briefed on policy, and presumably get intensive therapies and drugs — yet he still turned in such a horrifying performance at the Atlanta TV headquarters.

What would Biden have looked like if he’d just been through a stressful week at the White House with two shooting wars in action and a third one threatening to start, his support further collapsing, the economy suffering from inflation still increasing instead of returning to the happy Trump economic days –

Oh, all those events did keep happening, but Biden just ignored them while skipping off to the Maryland presidential retreat for some more down time.

And just after the debate, decrepit Biden had to be helped down a few low steps from the studio’s lectern platform by Dr. Jill. Who actually acts as Nurse Jill, as well as the nation’s actual commander-in-chief for her doddering husband.

Critics noted that Nurse Jill told Biden he answered all the questions at the debate, as if he were a grade-school student. And as if “answering the questions” means simply saying some kind of words, no matter how confusing, incomplete or pointless.

If Biden could go back to the 1950s’ major television quiz shows, in the time of his youth, and be a contestant who’s allowed to get away with whatever he pleases, he could be the big winner by reciting the alphabet, no matter how many letters of it he left out.

Come to think of it, one of those big quiz shows was called “The $64,000 Question.” That was big money then, a bit over a half-century ago, but inflation under both major political parties has reduced that figure to a middle-class wage. Wikipedia says that $64,000 figure was “equivalent to $730,000 in 2023.”

It was said that family members didn’t want Biden to end his presidency now with such a debacle as the CNN debate as a defining image. But hasn’t that always been one of the top considerations for Biden — making himself look good, no matter how many lies and deceptions are effected?

Including claiming to be a “good Catholic,” even though actually living as one is anathema to Biden.

Biden is said to make his political career decisions with his family, and Dr. Jill and Hunter were said to be urging him to remain in the presidential race. There’s no doubt they’ve been around politics for a long time, but are they any wiser than a million-mile passenger who never took flying lessons?

The frequent flier knows how a takeoff and landing is supposed to feel, but how to direct a big plane into the sky and then back onto the ground from the flight deck are beyond his understanding.

The Democrats were in their fix with Biden because his team vigorously had blocked any serious challenger to him in 2024 like candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. — even though Kennedy’s father’s generation of Democrat activists had driven incumbent Lyndon Baines Johnson from the presidential race in 1968 because of the impact of their getting into those primary elections.

Biden couldn’t survive any serious challenge to his decrepitude, and other Democrats made the grave error of accepting the strong-arming on behalf of a very weak incumbent.

Activist and entertainer Adam Corolla told “Turning Point USA” founder Charlie Kirk on Kirk’s national radio program that the political left was “gobsmacked” at seeing the reality of Biden’s debate performance because of the way they had avoided facts, but it was what conservatives expected to see because of their awareness.

Only two days earlier, Corolla said, White House press secretary Karine Jean Pierre had claimed that conservatives used AI to make Biden falsely appear old and feeble.

No doubt Dr. Jill, Hunter and others are desperate to hang on to all the perks they can from one of the top political jobs in the world, but desiring to and deserving to are two entirely different things. Just the same as for Joe’s unworthy wishes.
