Questions that George Stephanopoulos should have asked ...

Questions that George Stephanopoulos should have asked President Biden:

(1) Can you tell me the current year?
(2) Now let's try for the month. Can you tell me what month we are in?
(3) Let's try that again. Here's a hint, it's the month that comes after June.
(4) Correct!! Now let's try the year question again ....

FWIW ... as an 80+ year old, making small-talk fun of our own and even other's mental decline is pretty common. It's how we include ourselves with other's in our generation. To deny some degree of mental decline is like a denial of reality. Much better to face up to it than pretend otherwise. The funniest is a family friend who calls attention to his next semi-annual doctor visit with the need to study and prepare for the memory test. Like be sure you know the year, month and date before checking in. If uncertain, ask someone and write it on the palm of your hand with a ball point pen.

People in their 80s and 90s who are sharp as tacks don't brag about it, unless trying to divert attention from memory slippage. By the time we reach our 70s and 80s, most of us have figured out that wisdom trumps smarts and we can get by with just looking up what we don't know.

No joke. Some of these are actual questions asked during a cognitive evaluation. He needs one and also a brain scan.

@carpediem A trick icebreaker question used by one of our doctors is to ask the patient if they knew what town or city they are in. The clinic sits on the line, with the parking lot in one city and the office in another.

I don't think Creepy joe even knows he's alive. It's great watching the democrats have a complete meltdown though.🤣🍿

@ron122 I think Joe feels all is well. Meanwhile, dems across the land are scheming to get rid of him even though he was JUST chosen in the primary. Voters? Screw you. The elitists will tell you who the candidate is once they decide. They’ve already decided the choice of the voters means nothing.
The people should be able to question the candidates and make demands of the government. That's democracy, but we're NATO - stan.
Georgie should have asked BinBiden who the current Prez is.
