With the country largely shut down and campaigning for office grinding to a halt in response to the coronavirus outbreak, 2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden has been trying to stay before the American people by taking advantage of opportunities to go on national television to discuss the crisis.
Unfortunately, those opportunities are not faring well for the 77-year-old former vice president, who is sheltering at his Willmington, Delaware, home.
With questions about his mental competence swirling in circles outside of the liberal media, which is busy looking the other way, Joe Biden isn’t doing himself any favors when he utters nonsensical gibberish when answering questions.
Election Day is seven months away, but the cabal that seeks to never let a crisis go to waste has been pushing the issue of late, and Biden was talking about voting during an appearance Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”
He was referencing the 1918 influenza pandemic, aka the Spanish Flu, but flubbed the date.
As you can see though, that wasn’t Biden’s only problem: “We cannot let this, we’ve never allowed any crisis from the Civil War straight through to the pandemic of 17, all the way around — 16 — we’ve never, never let our democracy sakes second fiddle, way they, we can both have a democracy and elections, and at the same time correct the public health.”

The Trump campaign, not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, shared the video clip above.
The president’s eldest son and namesake, Donald Trump Jr., responded to the tweet to say: “Totally nothing wrong with this guy.”

There were other questionable moments Sunday, as seen in a tweet from Joe Concha, media reporter for The Hill.
If I’m following Joe Biden correctly during this ABC interview, he still wants the Wisconsin primary to proceed this week during a stay-at-home order amid a pandemic, but says out of caution that the DNC Convention should not be held in Wisconsin 3-4 months from now. Check.

ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos asked Biden if it was “wise” for Wisconsin to hold its primary this Tuesday, noting that Democratic opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders said it should be delayed.
Biden, who holds double-digit leads in most polling there, could not bring himself to agree.
Shameful that 2 days before the Wisconsin Primary, when the state has 2,112 COVID-19 cases and America has 8,500 dead so far, @JoeBiden is saying we should "follow the science" to determine whether to hold the primary rather than calling for it postponed (like @BernieSanders). pic.twitter.com/Qc9K0dACdJ

“Well, look, I think they should follow the science, I — and, you know, what I’ve been hearing, I have been following it like you have, like everybody has, watching the court action, it’s still in court now,” he said, speaking of legal challenges. “And — but I think whatever — whatever the science says is what we should do.”
And then there was this:
"Am I supposed to say something now?" – Joe Biden asks his wife during tonight's town hall.
He also said the YouTube Creators had "really great podcasts." pic.twitter.com/aBlzh4URHy

And the clips go on and on, as the Trump campaign and the GOP are only too happy to share:
Joe Biden just called on President Trump to enact the Defense Protection Act and appoint a supply commander to combat the coronavirus.

"Are you at all concerned, as President Trump said, we cannot let the cure be worse than the problem itself?"
"We have to take care of the cure that will make the problem worse no matter what"
Um, what? pic.twitter.com/VylTvzO3Tw

The scariest thing about Just Say No Joe is not that his dementia is accelerating by the day, no, the scariest thing about Burnt Out Biden is that ABC CBS NBC CNN & PBS know they have the power to delude 65M morons to vote for Vegetable Joe.
Which is scarier?
