Biden’s “dementia”

He’s doing it on purpose. When Biden makes a “gaffe,” this leads to discussion of “what he really meant,” keeping the statement in the news for a while until he or his staff issues a correction. Since these statements aren’t affecting his popularity (it’s been in the low 50s continuously), he’s going to keep doing it. His apparent “dementia” is definitely scripted.

Nobody's going to purposefully act like they have dementia.

I am assuming this is in jest.

I believe you are just seeing how his handlers are dealing with his dementia as they guide him through his Presidency.
[@622788,SumKindaMunster] He's always talked like that. What about this word salad?

[quote]“Look, having nuclear—my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart —you know, if you’re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I’m one of the smartest people anywhere in the world—it’s true!—but when you’re a conservative Republican they try—oh, do they do a number—that’s why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune—you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we’re a little disadvantaged—but you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me—it would have been so easy, and it’s not as important as these lives are (nuclear is powerful; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of what’s going to happen and he was right—who would have thought?), but when you look at what’s going on with the four prisoners—now it used to be three, now it’s four—but when it was three and even now, I would have said it’s all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don’t, they haven’t figured that the women are smarter right now than the men, so, you know, it’s gonna take them about another 150 years—but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us.”

The difference is that Trump used to be a lot more coherent. But you don't want to acknowledge his obvious deterioration or ask what's causing it.

[@1026,LeopoldBloom] [quote]He's always talked like that[/quote]

Oh bullshit. He's clearly declined noticeably in the last 5-6 years.

Send me a postcard from the state of denial, won't you? 😆
[@622788,SumKindaMunster] Just like you refuse to acknowledge that Trump has obviously declined over the past few decades. Trump exhibits some symptoms of tertiary syphilis - lack of coordination, paranoia, and disordered thinking.

The difference is that Biden, like that senile old foof Reagan, is surrounded by very capable people. Trump on the other hand was surrounded by sycophants and grifters. He drove away the competent ones like Mattis and Tillerson early on because they refused to kiss his ass. Even if you're a conservative, I don't see how anyone capable of intelligent observation could ignore that.

Ironic that whether it’s fake or real dementia, the odds of him making statements more ludicrous than his predecessor are impossibly low.

😆

Biden has never been the sharpest bulb in the lamp but I doubt he's faking sounding stupid. He does and says what he is told and always has. And it's a tremendous improvement over his mentally-ill predecessor.

Except he displays absolutely no signs of dementia.
FreeSpirit1 · 46-50, F
I dont think he has dementia, I do think he has what many people his age have, some worse than others. Anyone with elderly parents or friends have seen it. He is fine when he's on a script and following notes but not when he has to answer off the cuff.

You [quote]But please find incidents that are examples of dementia. [/quote]


I'm done. Have a good one.
Graylight · 46-50, F
[@157515,FreeSpirit1] So, no response. Noted.
FreeSpirit1 · 46-50, F
[@627992,Graylight] what is wrong with you?
Show you examples of his dementia which I said he doesnt have?....ok you got me, you win
I think he's basically "working with what he's got."

He's been doing it for years and while it's not impressive, it's been pretty solid.

{@leopoldbloom] stage managed senile gaffes . what are the trumpsters going to use next . his ratings show they are not doing him any harm with the voters .
Graylight · 46-50, F
[@3749,smiler2012] Yeah, for a sleepy, dementia-ridden and fineffectual as he is, he's got higher approval ratings than Trump ever had in four years.
[@3749,smiler2012] I'm not a Trump fluffer, idiot. A Trump fluffer would say that Biden's gaffes prove he's senile. I'm only saying that the well-timed ones might be scripted.
ron122 · 41-45, M
I hope you don't really believe that🤣
[@20437,ron122] I think a few of his gaffes, especially the well-timed ones, are scripted.
