Make no mistake, new weave or not, Joy Reid falls well short of the standard of hard-hitting journalists seeking the truth — if such a creature still exists in the year 2020.
All of which explain why the MSNBC host gets the Joe Biden interview.
But even in the safe confines of a controllable environment, the presumptive 2020 Democratic nominee struggles, as seen when Biden talked about vetting a potential running mate — males need not apply, as “Sleepy Joe” has already declared that his running mate will be a woman.
After comparing the vetting process to “a public physical examination,” he tried to score a few “woke” points among the progressive faithful, but had a hard time putting his words together to assure adherence to today’s new standard of acceptable speech.
"I'm having a 2 hour uh um vetting report from the lawyers and women and men of color as well as white um folks who are doing the vetting…"
Joe Biden is having a hard time speaking woke
Ridiculous. Here's a novel idea: Picking who's best for the job
It clearly isn't Biden! pic.twitter.com/QpUTB72Eqr

“That is just being finished,” he said. “And I’m having a two-hour, uh, um, vetting report from the lawyers and women — women and men of color, as well as white, uh, folks who are doing the vetting. Um, and, uh, when I get all the vetting done of all the candidates, then I’m going to narrow the, the uh — the list, and then we’ll see.”
The look of Reid’s face as Biden spit that jumbled word salad out was priceless.
As for his potential running mate, who may have the greatest odds ever to ascend to the throne, Biden has said that there are four black women on the list.
Among the names he is reportedly considering are Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif, Reps. Karen Bass, D-Calif., and Val Demings, D-Fla., Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, and former Obama administration official Susan Rice.
Imagine any one of these women as commander in chief of the most powerful nation in the history of the world.
That was just one of Biden’s stumbles in the soft ball interview, in another segment discussing the left’s go-to boogeyman, foreign interference in our election, he talks about a “voter registration physician,” whatever that means.

The stunning thing about moments like this is that liberal journalist like Reid sit there like a toad on stump and say nothing about Biden’s verbal blunders.
Just once you’d think one might interrupt to say, “Excuse me, what did you just say?”
Of course, the recurring thought being heard more and more is that there’s no way the powers than be in the Democratic Party let Biden take a debate stage with President Donald Trump.
Here’s a sampling of responses to Biden’s interview from Twitter, beginning with a tweet on that topic:
they’re not going to let Biden debate…. no way….. he can get one sentence right even if he uses a teleprompter.

40 years in politics and he can’t even say a sentence

Normally I would think this means whatever happened to Kamela’s face took him by surprise and he needs to find someone new, but this is how Joe speaks so I have no idea what he is saying.

What the hell is he babbling about ??? I can’t make sense of it.
— Donald Roessler (@DonaldRoessler) July 21, 2020
He can’t speak because he doesn’t understand what he is saying.

And she gave him a total pass

That’s good old Joe. They need to help him. If he suffers some kind of physical breakdown on the trail they should be held responsible. I don’t see him making it. Sometimes even a puppet just has its eyes fall off. Or a thread come undone. Joe is falling apart like an old puppet!

How come his eyes get more and more squinty? Is that an Alzheimer’s thing or just a dementia thing?
— Kim Taylor (@KiminCalifornia) July 20, 2020
Tf is he babbling about now? And he is going to “debate” Trump? It’s almost sad.

A voter registration physician is what is needed when one or more may have caught some type of virus from having to much economic intercourse. come on you know that thing?😂
