Lucky for Donald Trump that the issue of Badakathcare didn’t come up during the debate. Chances are he would have been opposed to it, though recent polls suggest the majority of Americans consider Badakathcare a right. Included among them are former Vice President Joe Biden and “the last guy,” known better outside Biden’s cognitively impaired sphere of reference as Barack Obama.
Here Biden is in the closing hours of the 2020 presidential race uttering the sheerest gibberish.
This one regrettably comes with no transcript, so it’s up to you to translate it into some semblance of language.
This serving of word salad is not Biden’s only example in recent days. Two days ago he said this:

Western Journal rebuilt the promise as “I’ll lead an effective strategy to mobilize truinnerashuvaduprezure” but was courteous enough to provide a transcript later released by CNN that revealed what the full statement from Biden was supposed to be: I’ll lead an effective strategy to mobilize true international pressure.”
Ultimately this is no laughing matter. Biden’s verbal miscues and memory lapses have long been a concern. As I noted in this space previously, in December 2019 Obama’s former physician, Dr. David Scheiner, bristled at a a letter released by Biden’s own doctor claiming he was “fit to be president,” asserting that he “is not a healthy guy.” Scheiner went on to express concern about “Biden’s risk of a stroke after the letter disclosed he is taking cholesterol medication and has an irregular heartbeat, having previously suffered aneurysms. Scheiner “added that he would like to see the results of an MRI or CT scan, which were not included” among Biden’s tests.
Other health professionals have been equally wary of the prospect of subjecting the soon-to-be-78-year-old Biden to the stresses of the world’s most demanding — and timecentric — job.
