Grist on Joe Biden’s Climate Podcast: “The whole thing sounds like a voicemail two of your grandparents left you”

On Climate Change with Joe Inslee is Joe Biden’s effort to explain his climate policies.

Joe Biden has a podcast, and there’s an episode on climate change

By Zoya Teirstein on Apr 27, 2020 at 3:55 am

The public rarely gets access to the real Joe Biden. His team keeps the gaffe-prone 77-year-old on a tight leash on the campaign trail. That strategy has paid off handsomely; the former vice president is now the presumptive Democratic nominee for president. But there is a way to get access to the inner workings of Uncle Joe’s brain, and it doesn’t require sneaking past the Secret Service.

Biden has taken a tip from the entire male population of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and started his own podcast. It’s called Here’s the Deal — possibly the most on-brand title of a podcast in the history of the genre.

Inslee plugs his endorsement again on the podcast. “I can’t wait to have an optimist back in the White House,” he tells Biden. The whole thing sounds like a voicemail two of your grandparents left you — wholesome, if a bit rambly. Except in this case one of the grandparents is gearing up for what may be the most consequential election of our lifetimes. “Wash your hands,” Inslee, sounding concerned, tells Biden toward the end of the episode. “I did!” Biden assures him.

I listened to the whole podcast. Lots of “yes we can do it”, but not a lot of substance about what he actually plans to do. Normally I take a few notes and provide a summary, and maybe offer a critique, but there was nothing to summarise. I thought about listening to it again, see if I missed anything, but decided not to.

  1. “I can’t wait to have an optimist back in the White House…”

    Seriously? The only optimistic thing I can see in Biden’s “Make America 2008 Again” agenda is hopes for an opportunity to spend trillions more of dollars that do not exist.

    • “I don’t know whether it will work, maybe it will, maybe it won’t. I feel good about it.”

      Oh, not THAT kind of optimist !!

    • The REAL President if the election went Democratic … has two possibilities, both scary, but one will actualize. One, Joe’s cognition tanks unconcealably, after the Nomination. The Democrat Establishment with little time, perhaps planned all along, crown both a Presidential nominee, and running mate with no grass roots consent of a Convention. Two, Joe struggles along with a VP nominee like wise forced upon him by the Democrat Establishment. That running mate likely female, will become President very soon after the Inauguration when the Democrat Establishment pulls all cognitive concealment support from Biden, and “sadly” leaves him to be found being unfit for office.

      Or, Trump could just win a second term.

  2. “I thought about listening to it again, see if I missed anything, but decided not to.”

    Well that’s 19 minute of your life wasted that you’ll never get back. At least you didn’t make it 38.
    Hell you could rearrange your sock drawer or pick navel lint out of your bellybutton in more productive use of that much time.

    The video of Creepy Joe that every US voter needs to watch before November is this one:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-eD2n2dD2Y

    creepy…

  3. A creepy empty suit. I wouldn’t trust the guy to dog sit. I really can’t see the democrats trying to push this guy through to the end. There has to be another plan. If there isn’t then they’re even crazier than I thought.

    Even the press, for all their efforts aren’t going to be able to cover for him. If the press were as powerful and important in shaping public opinion as they think they are, Donald Trump would never have even been the Republican nominee, let alone POTUS. But their arrogance and conceit is so overwhelming they were able to poopoo that fact by convincing themselves his election was an anomaly. There was little introspection among them other than crying about their own polls being so inaccurate. Instead it was us dumb, ignorant, racist, misogynist, slack jawed, knuckle dragging, gun toting, bible clinging, voters that didn’t listen to them that was and still is the problem they think.

    November this year that self-deception will take a big hit, despite them redoubling their efforts to sink this POTUS. But they will keep their self-delusion intact by emphasizing how rare it is for a presidential incumbent to lose a run at a 2nd term. A concrete block falling on their heads will not break through the bubble those people maintain to protect their egos.

    • A creepy empty suit. …

      Who is old school corrupt.

      Politics is a fun game. You smile and read what you are told.

      Biden’s son and John Kerry’s stepson got a billion dollar plus investment in their new ‘company’ from the Chinese. Biden’s son got a $80,000 a month job to represent the most corrupt company in the Ukraine.

      Biden forced Ukraine to fire the prosecutor who has investigating the corrupt Ukraine company and his son by with holding US aid money.

      Who has had two strokes. The second occurred on camera few months ago.

      Who is accused of criminal sexual assault from a ex-staffer, who is of course is a Democrat. All her Democrat friends confirmed she spoke to them about assault.

      • A clip of Reade’s mother calling Larry King to discuss problems between her daughter and a senior senator was recently discovered. Oddly enough, that clip was even more recently removed by Google.

    • The same Marxist stream media spent weeks and hundreds of stories trying to figure out if Kavanaugh did or didn’t attend a party during which a young woman may or may not have been raped, (Turns out he wasn’t even town that weekend.) can’t be bothered to even cover a story that claims Biden sexually assaulted a woman.
      (That’s not completely true. CNN did do one story, in which they interviewed various Biden advisors, all of whom assured us that nothing happened.)

      • Another clip surfaced today. This time of Biden, shortly after the Kavanaugh accusation surfaced.
        Uncle Joe declared at the time that we are obligated to always believe the woman.
        Many of the people who are still supporting Biden are quoted as saying the same thing at the time.

  4. Biden couldn’t put coins in a vending machine…..

    …but if the LSM says he’s an optimist, half the country will believe it

  5. Joe Biden is, at best, a figurehead for the Democrat nomination. The real person to watch, assuming the Democrats don’t come to their senses first (or what passes for their senses), will be the VP pick.

    • Very few people vote for the VP. And I would bet money that those that think Michel Obama will be that running mate are going to be disappointed. By her own admission she hated the constrictions of public life in the WH. Biden has already unequivocally stated that his running mate will be a woman. Which one of the most likely possible choices do you think will carry Biden over the finish line?

        • And there I think your touching on a key. I am of the belief that one of the ways Trump will win is by taking enough of the black and Hispanic vote to prevent Biden or Bernie from winning. Trump has done more for those minorities in three years than Obama did in eight and from what I am seeing, a significant percentage of them realize that. Even several democrat strategists have admitted that if a Republican can take 9 to 12% of the black vote then the democrat chances are sunk. This is one reason why so much emphasis is being put on the ability to cheat by the democrats. They see the writing on the wall and Trump 2.0 is going to be a disaster for them, setting back their agenda by a decade or more.

      • Nancy Pelosi would probably turn it down. Why should she want to give up the Speaker of the House position just to preside over the Senate?
        His best option, Hillary Clinton, might accept just as a step in the door and likely the only way she could make the Big Chair and she would carry her supporters with her in backing Biden.

        Of course Trump could beat him to the punch and tap Condoleezza Rice as his potential running mate in 2020

      • If Biden chooses a governor, I look forward to ridiculing all those Democrats who proclaimed that being a governor was insufficient preparation to be VP.

      • If Biden actually won in November, his first appointment could be Barack Obama as his Chief of staff. Then Obama could control everything in the White House, and effectively have a third term.

    • At this point, Creepy Uncle Joe is more like Max Headroom. He is just a figure carefully hidden away from the public inside a tv. His handlers should be charged with elder abuse.

  6. “Wash your hands,” Inslee, sounding concerned, tells Biden toward the end of the episode. “I did!” Biden assures him.”

    Gee Joe, maybe you should consider doing it again sometime, say once a week whether you need to or not.

  7. Biden can handle the anti-Trump/Republican sound bites, but when it gets beyond that and requires some thought, he gets confused.

    I wonder if Los Vegas is putting any odds on him not becoming the nominee? They probably ought to think about it. Bernie is still waiting in the wings. Still has his delegates.

    Biden may withdraw due to medical reasons.

    Amy Klobuchar is probably the best female vice presidential choice Biden can make. She has a lot of baggage, but the other possible female choices have even more baggage.

  8. Biden’s podcast.

    “Uh, ah, umm. Where are we? Oh, right. Sure, OK. Yeah, uh, climate change? Yeah, that’s right. Uh, what? Say again? Really? Did I touch you? I didn’t mean anything… You did? Well, SORRY. Don’t be so sensitive, I mean, I’m just a touchy-feely guy, don’t mean anything personal. OK, what? Climate change? Whatayamean, climate change? What? Oh, THAT… Yeah, right, ah, OK, climate change…. What are we doing exactly? Podcast? What the h*ll is podcast?”

  9. Joe, imagine you’re a non-essential employee and shut TF Up.

    Stay safe and healthy, all.
    Bob

    • “…. and shut TF Up.”
      I agree, the best chance Biden has of winning is to do just that and let Trump keep talking. And for all those mocking Biden’s mental state…. “noble” prize anyone… maybe a “hamberger?”

        • Markw
          Wow. Is that your best shot today?
          Anyway back to the point. What a sad state we are in when the election in November will be won by the candidate who says he least number of dumb things.

          • Just remember, like most socialists, Simon defines dumb as anything he disagrees with.

            How dare someone be allowed to disagree with Simon.

          • “How dare someone be allowed to disagree with Simon.”
            Happy to debate any time, but your “cut and paste” comebacks are not debate they are childish ankle kicking.

          • 1) Your single shot arguments deserve nothing less in response.
            2) I’ve given you very substantive responses including multiple links, including links to sites that were themselves loaded with links. Your response has always been to just reject anything that doesn’t go along with your religious convictions.
            3) The number of times you’ve actually tried to debate anyone can be counted on the fingers of one hand. Without the necessity of actually using any fingers.

            I always find it amusing when trolls complain about someone doing what they are known for.

          • MarkW
            “I always find it amusing when trolls complain about someone doing what they are known for.”
            Aghhh the “troll” comment. You are struggling today. It’s funny how you call someone a troll when you disagree with them.

          • Once again Simon demonstrates that his only mental ability is projection.
            There are plenty of people whom I disagree with that I don’t call trolls. Only those who act like trolls, such as yourself, get that label.
            As to how much effort I put into coming up with responses to you; Of course the effort is little, because you aren’t worth more than that.

          • Markw
            “As to how much effort I put into coming up with responses to you; Of course the effort is little, because you aren’t worth more than that.”
            Well do us both a favour and don’t bother. Your comments “cut and paste” are rather tedious anyway. And for the record, I’d rather be a troll than a troglodyte.

      • Yep,

        whenever Biden talks, Trump gains more voters.

        Whenever Trump talks, Biden loses more voters.

        • “Whenever Trump talks, Biden loses more voters.”
          Ummm …. you looked at the polls lately. I have he is dropping.

          • Polls before the election are completely meaningless. The Australia liberals (Republicans) were rock bottom in the polls, everyone poslter and agency was betting the Australian Labor (Democrat) party would win. How wrong, as usual, the polls were.

          • Polls, particularly in the US, exist primarily to tell people how they should vote, not to determine how people are going to vote. Claiming that Creepy Joe Biden has a large lead is meant to demoralize Trump voters and cover up electoral fraud.

          • I wonder what will happen to that support for Biden once Trump lets the people know about the sexual misconduct charges against Biden?

          • “I wonder what will happen to that support for Biden once Trump lets the people know about the sexual misconduct charges against Biden?”
            Trump should be the last one to bring up sexual misconduct. But that probably wont stop him. Frankly I think people are far more concerned with the covid issue and 1 million Americans being infected. And so they should be.

          • MarkW
            “Right up to the day of the elections, polls showed Hillary with a substantial lead.”
            That’s not true(again). It’s a myth Trump lovers like to repeat. When Comey announced the email investigation just before the election, the polls converged. From memory she was expected to win (and she did get more votes) but it was no done deal.

          • Biden might drop to the floor permanently, due to that minuscule bastard covid-19: prime host material.

            Needed a young, healthy female Dem. presidential candidate : Michele Obama or Tulsi Gabbard?

          • Simple Simon met a pieman,
            Going to the fair;
            Says Simple Simon to the pieman,
            Let me taste your ware.
            Says the pieman to Simple Simon,
            Show me first your penny;
            Says Simple Simon to the pieman,
            I have not any; Trump is bad; gimme the pie anyway;
            Trump is bad; you are selfish and should share with me;
            (and Trump is bad).

            Says the pieman to Simple Simon,
            Go f yer hat you, stinkn commie twat;
            I work hard to make my pies,
            You sit on your ass and tell lies;
            Entitled, you are not,
            You stinkn commie twat.

          • “From memory she was expected to win (and she did get more votes) but it was no done deal”

            Are you saying that the numbers given by the mass media were wrong? Also misleading and dishonest? If so, you are saying that Trump is right to call them “fake news”?

            Would you count that as election meddling by the media? Maybe you would agree with Trump that the fake news media is “enemy of the People”?

            Is that a gift in nature to the Dems? Should the crooked FEC be dissolved?

          • It really is fascinating how Simon believes that he’s entitled to his own facts.
            Any way, the false charges of sexual misconduct against Trump were dealt with 4 years ago.

          • niceguy, Simon is a big believer in the global warming scam, therefore readjusting past data to fit today’s narrative comes naturally to him.

          • I guess that the knowledge that she wasn’t a shoo in would explain the complete shock on the part of those gathered at Hillary’s victory party when state after state kept being called for Trump.
            It could also explain why hours after all the networks had called the election in Trump’s favor, Hillary went back to her hotel rather than face the public, and why she gave such a half-hearted concession speech hours into the next day.

  10. The VP nominee won’t make any difference. If elected, neither she nor Joe Dementia will be running the country. They will be puppets. The people pulling the strings will be behind the curtain.

    Trump may be the only president in my lifetime who is not a puppet. I used to think that anyway, but now I’m not so sure.

  11. Cognitive dysfunction is often gradual at 1st. When progression is to Alzheimers the person begins to use “touch stone” stock kind of words (&/or phrases) they fill their conversation with in order to gain time for their brain to get back context.

    Often that person is not deviously trying to cover their mental deficit, but rather personally coping with their circumstances when momentarily lost thinking cohesion. When their condition deteriorates further their conversational capacity progressively looses depth & after early in a conversation showing they are following the content their train of thought begins to wander – even though they can still utter their stock phrases.

    Sadly, there is no accurate warning when Alzheimer’s sufferers are going to shift into it’s worst phases. In retrospect others may be able to say they saw when that started to happened & they just didn’t realize it because the sufferer kept using their conversational gambits.

    There is no conceivable reason to elect someone exhibiting the behavior of the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate. To do so risks unelected functionaries exercising power over American citizens. Even if those underlings decide to obscure any Alzheimer decline they could not keep the person alive indefinitely.

    • “ in retrospect..” so true.
      My 68yo work colleague and friend kept asking me to email IT as he was locked out of his system ( about once a fortnight). He was working below par. He was completing all immediate tasks, but was failing to complete longer weekly length jobs. My boss was getting annoyed with him. This started in January and then in mid February his wife called to ask if we could look after him because he was being forgetful. Ohhhhh. In hindsight it was obvious in December, he had to retire by March. So fast, so sad.

    • “Cognitive dysfunction is often gradual at 1st. When progression is to Alzheimers the person begins to use “touch stone” stock kind of words (&/or phrases) they fill their conversation with in order to gain time for their brain to get back context.”

      Yes, I think that is where Joe is at. Every time I see him he is searching for words.

      • And they told us Donald Trump couldn’t govern because he seemed to at least one time confuse the Kurds and the Kuds, and believe Niger and Nigeria were the same countries, or at least said one name instead of the other. Apparently that level of “mental confusion” meant Trump was unfit.

  12. I think today’s latest revelation about a neighbour of Tara Reade confirming that she was told about Joey Fingers assault at the time will be his ending. He won’t get the nomination. The question is – who will the establishment pick instead? It won’t be Bernie, which will make the Bernie Bros even more volatile.

    • The question is, will the mainstream media ever cover these charges. On the other hand, there’s no doubt that the Trump team will.

      A senior Clinton advisor has recently advised Biden to drop out.

      If this stuff erupts late in the campaign, I’d be very surprised if most of Bernie’s voters even bother to vote.

  13. Come on, lay off old Joe. He is just a regular fella who gets up every morning and puts his pants on one arm at a time.

    • Remember when not being to perform an exposé on Aleppo, without preparation, without context, was disqualifying for a candidate? (Even for a candidate whose political selling point was to NOT meddle in the Middle East.)

  14. The allegations of his sexual assault against a female staff member must be taken seriously. New evidence has recently come to light when the victims mother years ago telephone the Larry King Show seeking advice about what to do because your daughter was sexually assaulted. In order to have full transparency we need a congressional investigation, the victim and her witnesses need to come forward, Biden must appear and all need to be questioned under oath.

    • “The allegations of his sexual assault against a female staff member must be taken seriously.”
      Fair enough…. but to be consistent did you take the numerous ones against Trump seriously?

      • We seriously looked into a few of the accusations against DT and found them to be as credible as the ones against two well known conservative Justices, that is, not at all.

        Many accusations against many conservatives don’t even pass the smell test, unlike the ones against Dems, which are consistent and credible. It’s just a fact.

        I could go on and on and on.

        • …Lets discuss the 20 accusation against Trump first, because those accusation came first and Republicans have not addressed any of them. I say look into them both. And if they are guilty send them packing.

          • You lie. Most of these have been debunked. Some are batsh*t crazy. Some fall completely under scrutiny. We don’t have police investigation powers but we don’t that to detect obvious BS; notably the people who come on TV but who don’t go to the police. Especially those two:

            – the first class plane “octopus” groping story;
            – the department store dressing room rape story from a woman who can’t go to a TV interview with a male without hitting on the interviewer and who thinks “rape is sexy”.

            I give no point to people who pretend to have material evidence but who don’t go to the police and don’t let that evidence be examined by neutral parties (see the yearbook signed by Roy Moore story). That in itself is disqualifying, as is refusing to let a normal inquiry begin and trying to forum shop to the Senate internal “justice” to disqualify someone.

            The mere fact that anti Trump TV channels would give air time to these crazies show that they don’t have a decently looking Trump accuser who is willing to go on record.

            Anyway IT IS NOT MY JOB to check each and every story. The media should act as a filter. The leftist mass media refused to do that and dumped each accusation. Sorry but not sorry: in that case I take a sample, if it’s crap, I say the rest is crap. End of story.

          • Niceguy
            “Sorry but not sorry: in that case I take a sample, if it’s crap, I say the rest is crap”
            Huh??? Well that is very thorough of you. All the accusers of Trump are lying because you think some of them are…. But you are happy to believe the accuser of Biden. Well there you go. I’d say that is the definition of partisan politics.

          • You really are not very bright, Simon.

            IT IS NOT MY JOB.

            The accusations stand as a whole. These are MEDIA stuff. There is no police case. The media sold these to us. You can’t pick and chose and then ask us to investigate.

          • niceguy
            “I see no such reason for not coming forward against a non politician like Donald Trump.”
            You really are not very bright are you niceguy.
            Trump is an extremely rich and powerful formidable bully, with a well documented vindictive streak. That would be enough to silence most.

          • Niceguy
            “I give no point to people who pretend to have material evidence but who don’t go to the police and don’t let that evidence be examined by neutral parties”
            Then clearly you are clueless about the trauma women suffer during a sexual assault. Trauma that can run so deep that most woman don’t report the incident. How would you feel about the prospect of your “evidence” being examined by a stranger and knowing (when it comes to a man like Trump) many will not only not believe you, but a large number of those people will vilify you. It takes a very brave person to go through that stuff, especially against a rich and power man.

          • “Trump is an extremely rich and powerful formidable bully, with a well documented vindictive streak.”

            Do you have any real example of people “bullied” by Trump?

            No, of course not.

          • Like most socialists, Simon only hates rich guys who aren’t socialists.
            Like most leftists, Simon defines a bully as someone who is mean to the people he likes.
            When people he likes do the bullying, he cheers heartily.

      • We should never take accusation of extremely old, unverifiable facts, esp. on politicians, double esp. before an election, seriously, unless there was an overwhelming reason for a victim to not come forward.

        I see no such reason for not coming forward against a non politician like Donald Trump.

        OTOH there are overwhelming reasons to not come forward against:

        – a French director who already admitted a rape, who is on the run, and who lives normally and gets praised for his work and gets excuses for his behavior;
        – a politician who is known for the unbelievable number of suicide of people around him who either come forward or are witnesses (*);
        – someone who is already on record breaking boundaries and touching many people inappropriately, even on TV, making teens very uncomfortable, near their own father who says and does nothing; getting covered by the commentators for that.

        In these cases, there is a priori near certainty that new accusations will be at best ignored, or even criticized, and that the victim will be shamed by the very people who claim to “believe victims”.

        No such thing against Trump, as the media even managed to sit (until the last minute) on a stupid (and probably illegal) audio recording where he “admitted” absolutely nothing, that was used as blatant meddling by the media in the election – a clear case of political intervention that the FEC would have counted as a gift in nature if it had any intent in preserving balance, which it never had, which is why the crooked FEC should have the same fate as should have the crooked FBI (break up, delete).

        I guess “election meddling is OK when we do it” is their motto.

        (*) a comparison between the number of early, violent, or suspect death around US political families and around Putin would be interesting

  15. I doubt the average Democrat voter thinks that Joe Biden, if he wins, will fulfil his first 4 year term, yet alone have any hope of being an 8 year two term Democrat President. If his health is still intact enough to even be able to make it to the Convention, albeit it may just be a video convention of some sort, which would be about as exciting as Joe Biden himself. A lot of his appeal will be who he picks for VP, who will probably wind up being the President sooner than later. Joe just appears health wise to be going downhill very quick and it sure does appear he has been having at least mini strokes if not an outright mild stroke already. His health should rule him out, and it will probably be so by the time of the Convention.

    The only thing the Democrats have going for them so far is how effectively can they now completely crater the USA economy just so that the incumbent won’t be reelected which is usually the case when the economy hasn’t done well under an incumbent President. The Democrats have been holding up Congressional approval for certain types of spending to resolve the American economy, which hasn’t even gotten to a bill for infrastructure spending yet which would probably be the best way to revive the economy going forward. You can be sure the Democrats will be obstructionists on that as well. And if they parachute a new candidate in at the convention, while the economy is still cratered, then they just may steal this election. That is their plan as I see it.

    While the virus was not President Trumps fault, he didn’t make any type of presidential power grab such as what FDR did for 3 terms. He listened to the experts, and allowed the States and Governors to make their own choices, as it should be, except for those Governors who did make a power grab to be tyrannical leaders. He can’t be blamed for any of this Pandemic, but for sure now the Democrats only leverage on the American people is to hold up the American/global economy so as to ensure the finger of blame can be pointed squarely at President Trump for allowing the economy to disintegrate for so long.

    President Trump would be far better off assuming that the virus will soon abate, at least for the summer and early fall, and plan to get the economy going full forward at high throttle. No matter what happens, a dead economy is probably worse than more thousands of infected citizens, which is doubtful now that summer is soon here and the low hanging fruit has been picked. He then has a chance of reelection, but if he dithers on the economy now by allowing the health experts and some Democrat Governors to guide the entire American economy through their narrow lens of focus, then I think the Democrats will have outsmarted him and will win come November.

    • Don’t forget that the Dems have spent a lot of time and money for Mail-In ballots with NO voter-id involved, a sure fire recipe for voter fraud at unbelievable levels. The only hope will be once again – the Electoral College. If that actually happens to work again, then expect a concerted effort to remove it from the Constitution.

  16. I think Sleepy Joe is great. Many people want him to step down or retire, but not me, I want him to run against Trump.

    Without his teleprompter he can hardly convey a cogent thought. Even with the networks feeding him the questions beforehand, and you know they will, he will be fumbling and mummbling his way through the debates.

    It’s going to be great entertainment.

    Can’t wait.

  17. To me he sounded more like my great grandparents (although they passed away years ago). (Not kidding).

  18. Putin, Xi and the mullahs can’t wait for the opening to make their next respective moves….against their neighbors and their proxy’s neighbors. The new space weapons race is upon us.

  19. Wuhan virus (formally known as SARS-CoV-2), the virus that causes Covid-19, is Gaia’s Choice, a Planned Population protocol, to relieve Her “burden”. Get off the lawn!

    That said, don’t be green, keep it green, not Green.

  20. That’s one small podcast step backward, one giant leap backward for mankind (or those who fund the leap backwards in the U.S.)

  21. If Joe “Dim bulb” Biden was as nice as some people believe his is, I would feel sorry for him.

    None of us can diagnose a person from TV or podcasts, but it’s obvious Joe is not quite all there. He can’t remember which day of the week is Super Tuesday, he sometimes says he’s running for the Senate, he can’t remember which state he’s in, etc., etc.

    We should investigate the DNC and Biden campaign for elder abuse. If Biden has to debate Trump his physical and mental deficits will be exposed. His best bet is to stay in bunker, not give live interviews and have no interaction with the public.

    • Maybe he will use the pretend of social distancing to avoid going to the debate in person. Then we will be able to read his teleprompter in his basement.

  22. Off-topic but… On that picture, this Biden guy looks twin to the one that cleaned and detailed cars at our very local VW concession and was, as the story goes, dismissed red-handed on the spot for purposely slamming doors and other mutilations of customer’s cars.

    Now I’m not a specialist in that field BUT wasn’t there a theory that facial similarity can be linked to behavioral alikeness ?

  23. This election will be Trump’s to lose. All he has to do is switch his mouth filter to “on”, stay away from controversy, and keep putting America first. So far he has provided the last of those three requirements.

    • If Mr. Trump looses then, we might as well be millions, on both sides of the “pond”, to meet by the city fountain facing the unemployment office, silently shake heads and hope the night won’t be as freezing as the last one.

      The way greens prepare to party is not a good sign though.

      After all maybe our civilization is doomed due to a pandemic of acute electoral oligophrenia.

  24. There is a wild card in this election that has not been mentioned here. It appears that the General Flynn case is about to bust wide open with the potential to do tremendous damage to some of the swamp and even possibly their media mouthpieces. I’m talking possible criminal misconduct of prominent players in the FBI, DOJ, Muller team, and even a prominent DC law firm being exposed to the light of day.

    • Yes, things are getting interesting. Former Obama minions are sweating. I wonder if Hillary is sweating?

  25. The democrat primary has been like a horse race where the horses keep dropping dead along the course. Now only Creepy Joe is approaching the finish line and he’s stumbling and not sure which direction to go. It’s the most absurd campaign I’ve ever seen. We’re not eve sure if the one horse left in the race will even make it to the finish line.

  26. Why does he think it’s OK to put his hands on women and children? Why does he think it’s OK to make women feel uncomfortable and to frighten children?
    If he’s got dementia, than I guess he might not know what he’s doing and just going with his instincts.
    If he hasn’t got dementia, then he’s a dangerous creep.

    • Either way, why is nobody pushing back against him?

      It’s indicative of both an abject lack of courage of ALL people around him
      AND
      the fact that Biden is in some way intimidating.

      So Biden is bully. It’s an established fact.

  27. Why does he think it’s OK to put his hands on women and children?
    Why does he think it’s OK to make women feel uncomfortable and to frighten children?
    If he’s got dementia, than I guess he might not know what he’s doing and just going with his instincts.
    If he hasn’t got dementia, then he’s a dangerous creep.

  28. “His team keeps the gaffe-prone 77-year-old on a tight leash on the campaign trail.”

    Considering the current president, it seems that being a gaffe-prone guy is an essential requirement for success to reach the white house. the more the better.

  29. Okay, the guy is 78. Ronald Reagan left office at the age of 76, at which time he had next to no short term memory. The greatest media scandal of the eighties is that everyone in Congress and the Washington press corps must have known of Reagan’s disability, and yet concealed it from the public.

    This business of politely concealing a president’s personal failings is much too common. During much of FDR’s presidency, for example, the press concealed the fact that he couldn’t stand or walk.

    Political insiders must know if Biden is mentally competent. If he isn’t, they aren’t letting on, and if wins the presidency, they won’t discuss it at all. I distrust upper echelon Washington reporters, who seem to view it as a professional responsibility to shield the president from any aspersions that he may be an idiot. (Although this protocol has largely been set aside in the case of Donald Trump, because everybody hates him.)

    • Hiding that is a gift in nature to the campaign. They must either be counted in the campaign finance or ALL ELECTION FINANCE LAWS NEED TO BE NULLIFIED right now.

      I prefer the later, but I’m not even American, so… although as a non American I still should be entitled vote on what the US law in that specific subject is. Unless of course you Americans dishonest Mueller and his thugs. Officially.

  30. I was frustrated by links pointing to Biden’s campaign site. You cannot get to the podcast from there without first registering with Biden(for president). If you want to listen to this podcast without that silly crap, go here:

    https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/on-climate-change-with-governor-jay-inslee/id1505238447?i=1000472332555

    The podcast is silly. Biden hosts guest Jay Inslee, the governor of Washington. They both stroke each other to begin, then Biden strokes Inslee as a great battler against Covid, and then goes on to compare the crises of Covid and climate change. Inslee adds the 3 crisis of inadequate leadership in Washington D.C. promoting Biden’s run. Inslee claims Washington (state) is successful against Covid because the population there “believes in science.” He goes on to promotes solar, batteries and green energy being deprecated by Michael Moore’s new movie. Biden stumbles on, never ending his sentences, jumping to whole new thoughts, somewhere managing in there to promote electric charging stations on highways. They never touch on Inslee’s own failed candidacy, or why people didn’t flock to his campaign.

  31. Today New York cancelled it’s primary. I read an interesting analysis of this.
    Seems that since there was no primary, at the convention, New York’s delegates will be uncommitted.
    Uncle Joe currently doesn’t have enough delegates committed to him, to win the nomination on the first round.
    After the first round, all delegates become uncommitted.
    If enough states of the remaining states were to cancel their primaries, nobody would have a majority of committed delegates going into the convention.

    The result of which is that after the first round, the convention is free to pick anyone.

      • Hillary’s health isn’t much better than Biden’s. Either one of them will probably have to be stuffed and propped up against the podium before the campaign is over.

        • Wasn’t it a Monty Python cartoon where the old Soviet leaders were on the podium on top of Lenin’s Tomb ?

          It was an archade game where players shot BB’s to knock over the guy at the microphone to carnival music, and the line shuffled to take the dropped one’s place ?

          That’s likely what the Democrat Convention may be like.
