Biden Struggles for Relevance During Pandemic

His frailty has been exposed while Trump has stepped up to the challenge.

With the country focused on combating the China Virus pandemic, current Democrat presidential front-runner and presumed nominee Joe Biden has struggled to keep himself in the nation’s consciousness — or his own, for that matter. With President Donald Trump engaged in daily briefings on his administration’s actions in addressing the crisis, Biden has been consigned to the peanut gallery of his own basement, where he’s done little other than throw out increasingly confusing and head-shaking “leadership advice” and questionable personal anecdotes.

As the virus crisis has intensified over the last couple weeks, what has become patently clear is that Trump has risen to meet the challenge, while Biden has only succeeded in further demonstrating his own unfitness for the office. One need look no further than Biden’s recent bumbling, mumbling, and confusing interviews from his home. His advanced age is painfully obvious, and it’s honestly hard to watch as all he has succeeded in communicating is his own frailty.

Meanwhile, Biden either donned Elizabeth Warren’s head dress or exposed more of his failing memory when he claimed to have become an Ivy League professor. “When I left the United States Senate, I became a professor at the University of Pennsylvania,” he boasted. In truth, after Biden left the vice presidency, he was awarded an “honorary-professor position” by the University of Pennsylvania, though he never taught a single class. He did, however, receive $900,000 for a handful of speeches and appearances on campus.

And then there’s the inconvenient accusation of sexual assault from a woman on his staff in 1993. We don’t know how credible the accuser or accusation is, but Biden himself said during the Brett Kavanaugh circus that he believes all women: “For a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, you’ve got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what she’s talking about is real.” Well, Joe, how about it?

Reminiscent of his fading form prior to and through the first three Democrat primary states, Biden once again seems low on energy and would like nothing more than to be simply awarded the nomination. This appears to explain his rationale for opting out of the next debate with Bernie Sanders. “My focus is just dealing with this crisis right now,” he insisted. “I think we’ve had enough debates. I think we should get on with this.” And evidently by “dealing with this crisis” Biden means sitting at his home offering confusing virtual interviews and taking potshots at Trump’s leadership.

Put all this together and it may explain why there’s now a petition circling among Democrats to “draft [Andrew] Cuomo” as the presidential nominee since the New York governor has become the leading face of the party in responding to the pandemic. Furthermore, Biden’s frailty may also explain why Sanders won’t drop out of the race even after being swept in the last three primaries. He may just be the last man standing.
