Erol Barnett of CBS News decided to ask Joe Biden a very innocent question recently. With all of the talk about Donald Trump’s cognitive tests, he wanted to know if Biden would be willing to take one as well. Of course, old Sleepy Joe flew off the handle and was ready to fight over it. You would think that someone in his position would think twice.
The optics of this exchange are especially terrible when you stop to consider the fact that he’s already had an unfortunate run in with a black media personality. “No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test? C’mon man. That’s like saying you, before you got in this program, if you take a test where you’re taking cocaine or not, what do you think, huh? Are you a junkie?”
It’s hard to ignore the reality of what he said and we cannot believe that he is this stupid. Would he have gone off like that on a white reporter? It’s highly doubtful. Even if you wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt from a racial standpoint, it’s hard to ignore the severity of this tongue lashing.
Democrats can never stop pointing out Republican rudeness but when they are the ones who are doling it out? It is perfectly okay. We have barely heard a peep about this Biden story in the mainstream media. If Trump had decided to refer to a black reporter as a junkie, we never would have heard the end of it. There would have been widespread outrage and all kinds of stories about the interview.
Instead, Biden is given a free pass because there is simply too much going on at the moment. It’s the sort of thing that would have probably gotten more attention if the news cycle weren’t so wacky. We’ve said it before and we will say it again: Joe Biden is actively benefiting from the current global pandemic. If the media had the chance to catch their breath and take notice, his goose would be cooked.
Let’s not forget that credible sexual assault allegations have been made against this man. When Trump was the one who was facing the allegations, this became a constant topic of discussion for all of the mainstream media outlets. To be fair, the media cannot focus on multiple topics at once and the COVID-19 pandemic has a stranglehold on the news cycle.
That does not mean that they need to be handed the free pass that Biden has been given. He talks down to the African-American community on a regular basis because he has it in his head that they are an easy vote for him. The orange man is so bad that they will vote for a candidate who talks down to them for having legitimate questions.
That’s the philosophy he seems to be living by at the moment. Meanwhile, there are others who are pointing out another obvious hole in the Biden logic. This is the same man who was bragging about being able to pass cognitive tests and he even claimed that he had passed such testing with flying colors recently. So what’s the real story here?
Biden is lying again but the media is too busy (and too unwilling to attack a Democrat) for that to happen. His interviews are only getting worse and worse. He’s a walking nightmare for the Democratic party but this is the man that they deemed to be the most electable of all their candidates. It’s a pretty sad commentary on the state of the party, to be honest.
By the time election day rolls around, Biden’s going to be unable to form complete sentences. We are watching his decline into dementia in real time and it would be sad if it weren’t so predictable. This is what happens when you let Barack Obama turn your party into a puppet regime.
