At this point, Joe Biden would do well to just say, “I’m too senile to do interviews, with, because of the thing, that. If you want to vote for me then… I’m a Senator, and we can’t have that. We gotta do the… we need to find a… folks, we gotta,” and then retire to his basement.
All that any of these interviews do is say to the population: “yes, as you know, I have dementia.”
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said President Donald Trump “seems to have no conception of what constitutes national security” after Trump revealed in interviews with Bob Woodward the existence of a classified nuclear weapons system.
In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, the former vice president said Trump’s comments to Woodward — made in a series of 18 interviews for the journalist’s upcoming book “Rage” — were “not a surprise.”
“You wonder why people in the intelligence community wondered from the very beginning whether you could share data with him, ’cause they don’t trust him. They don’t trust what he’ll say or do,” Biden said. “He seems to have no conception of what constitutes national security, no conception of anything other than, what can he do to promote himself?”
Biden cited an Axios report that Trump asked whether nuclear bombs could be dropped in the middle of hurricanes to dissipate them before landfall, which Trump has denied. He also pointed to Trump’s comment last year that the Continental Army “took over the airports” from the British in the Revolutionary War, more than a century before airplanes existed. Trump blamed a faulty teleprompter at the time.
“This is the guy who said maybe the way to deal with hurricane is drop a nuclear bomb on them. I mean — seriously, he said it!” Biden said. “I mean, God. Or you know, the problem with the Revolutionary War was they didn’t have enough airports. I mean, I just — it is beyond my comprehension.”
Yes, that is Joe “You Know the Thing” Biden, saying that if someone has a gaffe while speaking publicly, it indicates they are unfit to lead.
Biden then pointed to The Atlantic’s recent report that Trump had referred to those killed and injured at war “losers” and “suckers.” He highlighted his deceased son Beau Biden’s service in Kosovo and in the Iraq war, “and all the people with him, the people who died. They’re suckers? I mean I can’t fathom.”
You might remember that I was actually on the cover of The Atlantic.
They said in that article that I’m a secret homosexual and I tried to have sex with a black man in high school.
I mean, okay. Most of you don’t know me personally. But you kinda have some ideas about me, I would think.
Do you think it seems likely that I tried to have sex with a black man when I was in high school? Or does that seem like something someone just made up?
They also said I’m a pedophile (with a girl that time). I think they also accused me of rape maybe. I don’t know, I never read the whole thing, it was like a trillion words and had to have been the most boring thing yet.
I haven’t had an extreme amount of media coverage, but I’ve had more than most people on earth, and I will say that though the media is almost absurdly dishonest, The Atlantic was the only publication that just completely fabricated total nonsense about my personal life.
The closest thing to that was when the same “journalist” that The Atlantic hired to write that weird “profile” (I didn’t give an interview so it wasn’t actually a profile) wrote in the Huffington Post that I had a secret Twitter account, then the Jewish Daily Forward said that I didn’t actually run the Daily Stormer but only have the Twitter account. That was crazy because it was so confusing – if I’m not really the guy who runs the Daily Stormer and I’m instead just some random person on Twitter, do I actually even exist? But it wasn’t as bizarre as all the weird sex stuff.
Point being: I think The Atlantic totally fabricated this story about Trump insulting soldiers. It doesn’t even sound like something Trump would say, at all. It sounds like something that was made up whole cloth. Who the hell even thinks about World War I?
I guess in some universe someone could say that Trump is ethnically German so maybe he would hold some opinion on that war, but I mean, come on – do you think Donald Trump is going around thinking about his German heritage?
The “airports” comment was during a teleprompter speech, by the way. Look at this tweet – correcting him as if it wasn’t an accident and Trump actually thinks there were airplanes in the revolutionary war.
During his July 4th speech, President Donald Trump says American forces “took over the airports” during the US War of Independence in the late 18th century.

He mentioned Fort McHenry, which is a seaport (usually just called a port). In one hour long speech, a year ago, Donald Trump accidentally read “airport” instead of “port” and Joe Biden thinks that’s important to bring up in a major interview.
This guy is saying that Trump reading a teleprompter wrong once a year ago is a major problem:
Biden just pulled another Ron Burgundy moment by reading the words “end of quote” out loud from the teleprompter

He also said that the first president since Jimmy Carter to not start a war in his first term in office knows nothing about foreign policy.
This is the same Joe Biden who voted for the Iraq war, and was the vice president to the most extreme war president in American history.
Barack Obama launched airstrikes or military raids in at least seven countries: Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan.
Joe Biden’s position is literally: “elect me and I’ll correct Donald Trump’s mistake of not starting wars by starting wars.”
If Joe Biden debates Donald Trump on the stage in a building, it’s gonna be nuts.
