Ageism is arguably the only form of bigotry that is based on scientific fact. It is illegal to discriminate against someone because of their age, but that doesn’t mean it’s wrong to be concerned that the effects of age hamper an individual’s ability to do the job they’d be tasked with if given the opportunity.
It may not be politically correct to say this, but the effects of age and stress on former Vice President Joe Biden’s abilities to lead are very apparent. He’s lost a step. In fact, he seems to have lost several steps since his time in the White House. He’s always been known for gaffes and mental missteps, but in the past he’s been very quick to correct himself. Today, it seems that his corrections are often just as bad as his original gaffes.
Team Trump dropped the video above to highlight Biden’s greatest hits lately.
As Guy Benson noted over at Townhall:
If there’s any doubt about which 2020 Democrat Team Trump is working overtime to prevent from becoming their general election opponent, doubt no more. The Trump campaign’s various social media feeds have been relentlessly negative about Biden for months — while criticizing others in the field, of course — and now the re-election crew has produced a truly brutal compilation of the former Vice President’s various gaffes and brain fog moments over the course of the still-young primary campaign. Everyone is aware of Biden’s propensity to botch lines, ramble incoherently, and bungle facts; indeed, this flaw has barely fazed Democratic voters. But watching so many of them in a single reel, interspersed with negative media analysis and fellow Democrats questioning his fundamental fitness as a candidate, is still an arresting experience.
As much as the Democratic Establishment wants Biden to emerge from the Democratic primaries as the one to take on Trump, they have to be asking themselves if he really is the right person to sit in the Oval Office. He would be 81-years-old at the end of a first term if her were to beat President Trump. At 76, he’s already showing signs of being mentally incapable of handling the extreme pressure placed on a President.
It’s time for Joe Biden to watch the tape. He should watch videos of himself on the campaign trail, the debate stage, and in private interactions. If the Democratic Establishment won’t see the truth, perhaps Joe himself will.
