Today, Joe Biden appeared in front of the press and did his best impression of a non-senile presidential candidate who’s about to dropkick Donald Trump’s traitorous ass back to Trump Tower — preferably the one he’ll end up building in Moscow. (Of course, having squeezed all the juice out of this lemon, Putin will likely put the kibosh on Trump’s original construction plans. I suppose the best Trump can hope for at this late date is a Jamba Juice on the second floor of a mall in Pripyat.)
One of Biden’s key takeaways was … in a Biden administration, we’re going to return to consensus reality.
REPORTER: “… President Trump for not rejecting that conspiracy and the people who believe in it.”
BIDEN: “I’ve been a big supporter of mental health. I’d recommend the people that believe it maybe take advantage while it still exists in the Affordable Care Act. It’s bizarre. Totally bizarre. And now, have you guys found that planeload of people in uniforms and weapons and flying around, have you found them yet? … And by the way, I respect conservative and liberal points of view in teh press. Anybody found that plane? What in God’s name are we doing? Look at how it makes us look around the world. It’s mortifying, it’s embarrassing, and it’s dangerous. It’s dangerous. If the president doesn’t know better, which I … he has to know better. My lord, we’re in much more trouble than I ever thought we were. It’s bizarre.”
And what was Donald Trump’s response to QAnon, the viral and virulent theory that Satan-worshipping celebrities and politicians are running a global child sex-trafficking ring that Trump is fighting to expose? “I don’t know much about the movement other than I understand they like me very much, which I appreciate.”
Nice to see Joe clap back on Trump’s claims that somehow Biden has lost his mind. Biden’s mind never left him. Trump’s, on the other hand, is somewhere in a New Jersey landfill nestled between a half-eaten bag of Funyuns and Lindsey Graham’s dignity.
