Since his announcement that he would make a run for the White House, former Vice President Joe Biden’s multiple gaffes and seeming inability to string together more than a few coherent sentences has raised a number of questions about his overall health by a number of pundits and concerned citizens.
According to Breitbart, his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), attempted to put any concerns over Biden’s health to rest during an interview this week with Nebraska’s KETV, confirming to the outlet that Biden is strong and will live a long life.
“Let me tell you something: Joe Biden is going to live a long life. He is strong of spirit — strong in body. And we have a lot to do,” Harris said of the 77-year-old presidential candidate.
Her remarks came in the wake of another string of puzzling gaffes Biden made on the campaign trail. In one of them, Biden stumbled several times in an attempt to remember President Donald Trump’s name, instead referring to him as “George.”
On Tuesday, Biden stirred up a firestorm of conspiracy on social media among those who believe the Democrat party will do everything in its power to eventually make sure Harris becomes president, or have accused Biden of merely playing the part of the puppet on the ticket, with Harris and her progressive allies using his name to pull the strings on future policy.
“My name is Joe Biden, I’m Jill Biden’s husband, and I’m Kamala’s running mate,” Biden said. “Y’all, think I’m kidding, don’t you?”
According to NBC News, Biden’s physician seems to agree with Harris’ assessment of the former vice president’s health, saying in a report that he’s not only healthy, but also not on the verge of slowing down anytime soon.
It should be noted that while Biden is healthy right now — at least on paper — he has a medical history that includes two instances of brain aneurysms that he suffered in the 1980s. Complicating that matter was the addition of a case of deep vein thrombosis and a pulmonary embolism.
That aside, if we’re all being completely and brutally honest, while Biden was whip-smart during a majority of his nearly five-decades in political office, even his most loyal supporters have to admit that over the course of the past year, his mental sharpness is nowhere near what it once was.
In a normal election, Biden’s repeated slips and gaffes would probably be taken into consideration on a much higher level, but given that the left so desperately wants to oust Trump from office, it seems as if they’re perfectly fine with a president who appears to be on a steep mental decline.
