Dan Bongino says that Joe Biden’s mental condition is spiraling downward and allegedly more severe than outsiders are aware.
The former U.S. Secret Service agent and current pundit/internet impresario took to Twitter Sunday to say he wasn’t exaggerating about the condition of the presumptive Democrat presidential nominee, which is making life increasingly difficult for his handlers.
“Not a joke and not hyperbole – I’m hearing from people close to the situation that Biden’s cognitive decline is rapidly worsening and is becoming increasingly difficult to mask. The Democrats are going to have to make a decision soon.”
Biden, 77, is allegedly leading President Trump in the polls despite hardly ever leaving his Delaware basement. His history of making erratic statements, plus an inability to often finish a complete sentence, has become well known and a source of amusement.
Any family that has had to care for an elderly relative or another loved one with dementia or a related brain disorder, however, knows that the reality is anything but fun and games.
President Trump is only three years younger, but the difference between the two men in terms of energy level is stark. That may be why the Biden team may be trying to find a way to avoid fall debates between the two candidates.
Given Biden’s inability to actually run the country if elected, FNC’s Tucker Carlson has observed, Biden’s VP pick will be the most consequential in history because that person could become president sooner rather than later. That person could also likely function as the de facto president because of Biden’s limitations.
Predictions have persisted all along that the Democrat National Committee and its delegates would switch candidates around the time of the convention which is scheduled for August 17-20 in Milwaukee.
A video clip shared late last month by James Woods and others of Biden being led around by a campaign aide didn’t put any rumors to rest.

If Bongino’s inside story is accurate, Democrat power-brokers have a delicate decision ahead.
Twitter reacted to Bongino’s assessment of Biden’s health, which included politics-aside expressions of sympathy, while others advanced provocative theories about a replacement.
You have no ability to compare the cognitive abilities of a person mansged from a basement with cue cards versus someone in the job who operates with no filter. Fair contest DJT in basement with cue cards. Biden free associating for two hours.

Anyone allowing Biden to put himself out there is committing elder abuse. My Mom recently passed from Alzheimer’s and I know the signs of dementia all too well. It’s hard to watch him speak and falter, get confused, etc. Shame on his family!!

This is how it happens with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Sometimes things start to degrade rapidly. It’s sad.

I don’t think they ever planned to truly make him the candidate. He was just a place holder so Trump couldn’t attack their actual candidate, Cuomo. That’s right, Killer Cuomo. That’s why he went to GA the other week. They are going to spring him at the last minute.

Why is is wife allowing him to be used like this?
It has to be painful for her
She needs to pull the plug and tell the Dems to find someone else
Dems really taking advantage a man in total cognitive decline
Dem Members need a hard look in the mirror

I hold his wife accountable for placing him in this position in the first place. She should be his fiercest protector and keep him out of the public eye. Let the man retain some dignity regardless of a person’s politics.

It’s sad… but, it will show the whole world how the Democrats will even put this man in a basement and torture him to get what they want.

Elder abuse. I am not a fan of Biden but I can’t stand to see him exploited and humiliated.

They’re not going to change anything. Their strategy of keeping Biden in the basement has proven highly effective. Biden’s lead has widened in the polls while he’s been silent. They’re going to cancel the debate with some excuse which is going to make him look presidential

@BallerMom2020 @lgb1060 Wow! Sad! Even though I don’t care for him and don’t agree with his politics, it’s sad to see senior abuse & anyone being used for political reasons, when they clearly have cognitive decline issues.

I have said all along, they are using him as a decoy until they can figure out exactly who and how they are going to finish the campaign

It was never going to be Joe IMO. You don’t run a candidate who makes Bob Dole look like an MMA fighter against “the biggest threat to our ‘democracy’”. If I’m the DNC Joe steps down due to health and Michelle and Oprah step in. It would take away Trumps ability to ridicule.
