Despite his still comfortable lead in the polls, Joe Biden continues to be a stumbling, bumbling, babbling hot mess on the campaign trail leading some to question whether he is fit for the presidency.
The bad weeks for the former vice president have turned into bad months and in just the last several days, lunchbucket Joe has committed a series of gaffes with the latest being that he was in office at the time of the 2018 Parkland high school massacre.

Biden also mixed up former British Prime Minister Theresa may with long-dead Margaret Thatcher, said that “Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids,” and in classic Biden-speak, proclaimed that “We choose truth over facts.”

Even though few are inclined to say it, the elephant in the room is that the geriatric gaffe machine is exhibiting classic signs of senility which are hardly the traits that are befitting for a job as the leader of the free world.
And the current leader of the free world President Trump took to his weaponized Twitter account to point out the inconvenient truth that the aspiring emperor has no clothes or that Biden is not “mentally fit” for such a huge responsibility.
Joe Biden just said, “We believe in facts, not truth.” Does anybody really believe he is mentally fit to be president? We are “playing” in a very big and complicated world. Joe doesn’t have a clue!

On Friday while speaking to reporters, Trump mocked his likely opponent who he said was “not playing with a full deck.”

President Trump on Friday unloaded into Democratic 2020 frontrunner Joe Biden, saying he would be “thrilled” if the former vice president was his opponent next year and mocking him for his most recent gaffes on the campaign trail.
“Look, Joe is not playing with a full deck,” Trump told reporters outside the White House. “He made that comment and I said ‘whoa.'”
“This is not somebody you can have as your president, but if he got the nomination I’d be thrilled,” he said.
Trump was responding to mistakes made by Biden on the campaign trail Thursday when he told a crowd in Iowa that “poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids.” Biden quickly corrected himself after some applause from the crowd at the Asian & Latino Coalition PAC, and finished, “wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids.”
Trump had previously blasted Biden as “weakest mentally” and “slower than he used to be” as well as called him a dummy none of which good old Joe has done to prove that the president is wrong.
Trump on Biden:
“Obama took him off the trash heap”
“He looks different than he used to, he acts different than he used to”
“He’s the weakest mentally”
“Biden is a dummy”
“China ate our country alive [under] Biden”

Biden is in the Hawkeye State with the rest of the lamentable socialist rat pack of 2020 candidates where the phonies are regaling the locals at the annual Iowa Wing Ding dinner by trying to act authentic – in lunchpail Joe’s case, a bit too authentic.
Pointing out Biden’s slippage isn’t ageism either because if you look at Bernie Sanders who is a year older than the ex-veep it is clear that the self-proclaimed hero of the working class is ready to be packed off to the glue factory.
The media may be able to prop Biden up as he stumbles along but it’s still nearly a year until the Democratic National Convention and at this rate, he may be drooling on himself by the time that the nominee takes the stage in Milwaukee.
Then he would have to face a well-rested Trump who will already be in campaign mode and will make mincemeat out of him in the debates which will be a humiliating end to a long career of leeching off of the taxpayers for a man who has never held a real job in his life.
