Ordinarily, you’d call it elder abuse for some manipulative character to lead an infirm elderly old man where he might not want to go.
But then there Joe Biden, running for president, unable to recall his own political proposals for running our lives, even with a teleprompter before him, clearly being led by the hand by agile Bernie Sanders minions.
Here’s how bad it was, from Bronson Stocking at Townhall:
Appearing virtually at the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers’ 2020 Virtual Political Conference on Wednesday, Biden appeared to be reading from a teleprompter when he repeatedly lost his train of thought.
“Lonnie knows I believe this every fiber of being, we’re opposed,” Biden began confidently enough before he seemingly lost his place with the teleprompter.
Biden then switched to platitudes about making “it happen” and illuminating “the path forward.”
“What I propose is, is, it can be done. I think we’re in a position to really make it happen. And my team and your team are already working closely together to light up the path forward here,” Biden said.
Biden’s overworked staff must have queued the teleprompter back up because Biden then appears to return to it, only to lose his train of thought once again.
“Critical laws like the PRO Act to strengthen collective bargaining, on politics like prevailing and,” Biden continued, as he held up his hand in a futile effort to follow along. It was no use.
“Look,” a defeated Biden said as he gives up on the teleprompter. “I guess, I’m, I’m, I’m taking too much time, but you know …”
That’s a scarily wretched performance, from a man who’s expected by pollsters to become the next president of the United States.
