The nationwide media had been able to have a twenty fifth Modification occasion when a sloppy e-book by Michael Wolff got here out with a bunch of ditzy rumors about President Trump’s psychological acuity.
Against this, we simply watched the present president literally collapse and there’s not a peep of concern from the press.
Joe Biden on Friday was climbing as much as board Air Power One when, even together with his hand on the rail for help, he tripped over one of many steps. He pushed himself up solely to see the identical factor occur a second time. Lastly, gravity bought the very best of his 78-year-old ankles and he fell to his knees.
Biden finally bought up and made the remainder of the journey to the cabin, however are all of us going to faux that we weren’t feeling the urge to hurry to his aspect like a Boy Scout providing his arm to an aged lady crossing the road?
Aides had been fast to tell us that every little thing is ok. Calm down!
White Home Communications Director Kate Bedingfield stated Biden, “didn’t even require any consideration from the medical crew.”
He didn’t even want a physician. That’s how sturdy Biden is.
One among Biden’s press secretaries was positive to inform reporters that it was very windy outside throughout Biden’s journey up the steps.
Is nobody within the main information media involved?
It could be simpler to miss the incident if it didn’t come along with a slew of different episodes with Biden.
In a latest speech, apparently having forgotten the identify of Protection Secretary Lloyd Austin, Biden known as him, “My . . . The man who runs that outfit over there.”
Lord is aware of what would have occurred at CNN had Trump referred to any federal division as “that outfit over there.”
Dementia! Cognitive decline! And that will solely be between breathless denunciations by Jake Tapper of Trump being racist for referring to a black four-star Military normal as “the man.”
Biden slogged his method via one other latest speech selling his COVID aid package deal. “The overwhelming majority of economists,” he stated, “left, proper and heart, from Wall Road to the . . . to the . . . non-public . . . uh . . . financial polling initiatives . . . the economists, as I say, left, proper and heart, say, along with the wants that the folks have, we want this to develop the economic system.”
Even the best way Biden strikes bodily is outstanding. A wave of his hand or a gesture towards somebody close by is finished with the pace of a very sluggish yoga stretch.
As soon as upon a time, the press cared concerning the bodily and psychological health of a president.
Recall that a complete information cycle was made out of a video that confirmed Trump strolling slowly down an outdoor backstage ramp.
Right here’s the New York Occasions headline that got here out of that: “Trump’s Halting Stroll Down Ramp Raises New Well being Questions.”
And right here’s the paper’s headline after Biden ate it on the steps: “Biden is ‘doing 100% high quality’ after tripping whereas boarding Air Power One.”
Nothing to see right here, of us!
