Asked About His Mental Fitness, Biden Says ‘Watch Me’ – Yeah, That’s the Problem



New in PJ Media:

Scott Pelley of 60 Minutes is just another standard-issue establishment media sycophant for the Left, but on Sunday night’s show, he did dare to ask the putative president what everyone in the world has been wondering: how can a man think he is a capable president when he has been twice filmed shaking hands with thin air, and when has said that the entire nation can be summed up in one unpronounceable nonce word, among innumerable other incidents of tortured syntax, incomprehensible speech, rash statements his horrified aides had to walk back, and more? Biden’s answer, if anything, just increased, rather than allayed, concerns about his cognitive abilities.

Pelley began by doing something unusual for him: stating an actual fact. “Mr. President,” he said, “you are the oldest president ever.” Biden responded by asking us to buy his feeble bravado rather than our lying eyes, saying: “Pretty good shape, huh?”

True to his sycophantic nature, Pelley grinned obligingly and continued, speaking very slowly and deliberately, as if to someone whose comprehension couldn’t be assumed: “Which leads to my next question. You are more aware of this than anyone. Some people ask whether you are fit for the job. And when you hear that, I wonder what you think.”

Biden answered with a dare: “Watch me.” Well, yes, Joe, that’s what we’ve been doing, and that’s why we’re so appalled and concerned. The supposed president pressed on in his inimitable semi-coherent fashion: “And it ma—, honest to God, that’s all I think. Watch me. If you think I don’t have the energy level or the mental acuity, then — then, you know, that’s one thing. It’s another thing, you just watch and — and, you know, keep my schedule. Do what I’m doing.” So we should take a massive number of vacations to Delaware?

Biden’s false bravado was bad enough, but he wasn’t finished. He continued: “I — I think that, you know — I don’t — when I sit down with our NATO allies and keep ’em together, I don’t have ’em saying, ‘Wait a minute, w— how — how old are you? What are you — what say?’ You know, I mean, it’s a matter of, you know, that old expression: The proof of the pudding’s in the eating. I mean, I — I — I respect the fact that people would say, you know, ‘You’re old.’ And — but I think it relates to h— how much energy you have, and whether or not the job you’re doing is one consistent with what any person of any age would be able to do.”
