Something just changed. Instead of an overwhelming avalanche of gaslit headlines and bullshit punditry projecting mental un-fitness on the opposition (as we have seen from every Democratic operative and mainstream media lackey over the past five years), it’s different this time – since special counsel Hur’s (independent) report official raised questions about President Biden’s mental acuity, describing him as a “well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.”
Finding anyone willing to actually defend Biden against these accusations – in any other way but proclaiming that ‘well Trump appointed Hur’ – has been nigh on impossible (even on Sunday’s political talk-shows which seemed designed to do just this week in and week out for years).
Instead, the opposite – some actual reflection by Democrats that maybe, just maybe, all the glitches, stumbles, stammers, gaffes, shaking hands with no-one, angry outbursts, mis-remembering, and talking-to-dead-people – are a thing after all.
Here’s top Clinton Advisor Paul Begala practically admitting defeat live on CNN:
“…This is terrible for Democrats. And anybody with a functioning brain knows that… This is going to be a really rough, ugly, unpleasant campaign.”

And here’s the horse’s mouth herself, no lesser mortal than Hillary Clinton, admitting to MSNBC’s Alex Wagner in an interview aired Saturday, that Biden’s age is an issue…
“I talk to people in the White House all the time, and you know, they know it’s an issue, but as I like to say, look, it’s a legitimate issue,” Clinton told
Of course, she added that it is a “legitimate issue” for former President Donald Trump (who is three and a half years younger than Biden).
But it gets better, as former Obama advisor David Axelrod declared Friday that Joe Biden’s angry reaction to Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report suggesting his memory has faded only served to “reinforce a meme that’s out there,” adding that Biden’s cognitive acuity “is a problem.”
“The central meme that is hurting the president is this issue of age. It’s a big barrier,” he further urged, also noting “you can’t unring the bell.”

Axelrod’s comments should not be a total surprise, however, as he has been questioning Biden’s running for re-election since November…
Only @JoeBiden can make this decision. If he continues to run, he will be the nominee of the Democratic Party. What he needs to decide is whether that is wise; whether it’s in HIS best interest or the country’s?

Furthermore, The Daily Mail reports that sources indicate Democrats are considering a ‘nuclear option’ of ditching Biden before or at the Party convention in August in favour of either California Governor Gavin Newsom or Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
The report cites a “former senior Democrat White House official” who has previously worked with Biden.
“I think it is now panic time. Biden should not be our standard bearer,” the source is quoted as saying.
Of course, the Trump campaign has been questioning Biden’s fitness for office for months, and the former president suggested during a speech at a rally in South Carolina, that “anybody running for President should have tests, and I pass them every time,” adding “I don’t think Nikki would pass the test.”
Trump further stated that “regardless of age,” all candidates for major offices, including Vice President also should be mentally tested.
“They say it’s not Constitutional, I’d be willing to wave it,” Trump urged, before going on to describe Haley as “the candidate of globalists and warmongers who want to spend trillions and trillions of dollars on endless wars.”
Trump went on to tell the crowd of thousands that if you asked Joe Biden what MAGA stands for “he would not be able to tell you,” because his “brain is not working too well.”
Finally, returning to the left side of the aisle, even James Carville is raising doubts about Biden’s ability (on CNN no less)…
The fact that Biden isn’t doing the Super Bowl interview and probably won’t debate, says James Carville, “that’s a sign your staff doesn’t have much confidence in you.”
And while it’s “never too late” to change candidates, Carville warns “the later it gets the more confusing the process gets.”
Oh, and in case you wondered what Biden is doing on Super Bowl Sunday, he is blaming ‘big corporate greed’ for shrinkflation and the rising cost of snacking…
Read the fucking room, you
clueless twat “well-meaning old man with a poor memory.”
And Biden’s odds have tumbled in the last few days…
Tick, tock, Mr.President.
