Jill Biden



Joe Biden's Zombified Body Appears In a Video With Jill Biden and It's Maximum Cringe.

Joe Biden appears to have found a way to avoid his mind melting during every live stream appearance just don't talk.

He appeared with his wife Jill Biden yesterday via a video published by The Hill in which Joe stands there speechless, blankly looking into the camera as if he's being propped up by somebody off screen. It's one of the more cringe inducing things you'll see today.

Where to begin.

For starters, can we just note that this is basically a campaign ad that The Hill is choosing to run free of charge? On what planet is this video, which features a candidate's wife spouting political platitudes, a news item? There's no critical commentary, nor any accompanying article. It's enough to make one wonder whether the Biden campaign needs to report this as a campaign donation and I'm only half joking.

As to Biden, man is this a bad look. Having his wife, who has flashed her deep desire for the White House numerous times at this point, speak for him as he appears to be in a zombie-esque state for most of the video is not a confidence builder that this guy can handle the job at his age, in his condition. Who exactly is running for President here?

More and more frequently, Jill Biden is coming across as his ambitious caretaker, propping her husband up so she can grab the prize at the end of the race. It's all gotten very weird. This is a man who can barely complete a sentence at this point. When Joe Biden off the teleprompter, he shows a continued inability to process his thoughts, often forgetting what he's saying or randomly shifting to other topics. It's not a "stream of consciousness," trying to talk your way around an issue thing like you see without other politicians. This is clearly a cognitive issue. You can see another example of Joe Biden's mind slipping in a recent remote stream he did with Al Gore, where Joe began to slur his words in the process.

This can't last. While the media will do their best by running campaign ads for the Biden campaign, the rest of us clearly see what's going on. No amount of Jill Biden pumping up her husband in videos is going to change the situation. At the end of the day, Joe Biden has to stand on his own as the candidate. The biggest test will come in the debates.

Democrats better be warming up some replacements in the bullpen.

Joe Biden

Huge thank you


Former Obama doctor says Joe Biden is not a healthy guy.

Former President Barack Obama's once-longtime doctor said the medical records Joe Biden's campaign disclosed are concerning and incomplete.

"He's not a healthy guy," Dr. David Scheiner, who was Obama's personal physician for 22 years before he became president, concluded after reading the records. "He's not in bad shape for his age, but I wouldn't say he's in outstanding health. Could I guarantee he won't have issues for the next four years? He has a lot of issues that are just sort of sitting there."

A three-page letter from Biden's physician concluded the former vice president is a "healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old" that is fit to be president. But the letter also revealed Biden receives treatment for an irregular heartbeat and high cholesterol and that he deals with acid reflux and seasonal allergies. It noted his already known history of aneurysms and that he took blood thinners.

The details from the letter made Scheiner, 81, concerned about Biden's potential for strokes, and he said he would want to see results from an MRI or CT scan. Because Biden also used to have sleep apnea before getting surgery on his sinus and nasal passages, Scheiner said he would also like to review the results of a sleep study.

The report doesn't mention an MRI despite the fact that Biden had two brain aneurysms in 1988, the first of which almost killed him. Earlier this year, the Washington Examiner interviewed Biden's former surgeon, who vouched the 2020 front-runner was in the clear.

But the latest health information doesn't mention details of any checkups that likely occurred to screen for future issues. The report also included mention of surgeries that hadn't been previously disclosed, including one for an enlarged prostate. Previously, the public only knew Biden had received treatment for the disorder.

Dr. Kevin O'Connor, who wrote the assessment, also stated that Biden had "received multiple physical therapy treatments and surgeries, for various sports medicine and orthopedic injuries" but declined to specify any further.

"I had no idea Biden had such a history. My goodness gracious, he's got a lot of history," Scheiner said.

Biden's last medical records disclosure, from when he was Obama's running mate in 2008, was 49 pages. He has faced speculation this election cycle about his age and mental capacity, including from President Trump, who has said Biden is " not playing with a full deck."

The most recent doctor's letter doesn't address Biden's vision, even though Biden blamed a contact lens mishap for his eye filling with blood during a town hall, nor does the letter address whether he has had multiple cosmetic surgeries.

Historically, presidential candidates have relied on letters from their personal doctors to disclose details of their health to the public. As a result, there's no uniform way that a candidate's medical information is presented to voters, and there's no guarantee the information is complete.

For instance, former Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain made more than 1,500 pages of medical and psychiatric records available to reporters because he had a history of cancer and was a prisoner of war, but rumors about his health persisted. In contrast, Hillary Clinton released a two-page letter that omitted her weight.

During his 2016 campaign, Trump's doctor declared he would be the "healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency." Later, the press learned the phrase had been dictated by Trump himself, and the White House provided few details of an unscheduled visit the president made in November to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

Scheiner said he wants to see MRI results for Trump to check for strokes, as well as a neurocognitive assessment. He raised concerns about the president's speech pattern and behavior, saying it may be a sign of neurological damage.

"Something happened," Scheiner said of the Walter Reed visit.

Health information from this year's presidential field has been similarly sparse. Michael Bloomberg, 77, released records from his doctor on Dec. 12 declaring him to be in " outstanding health," a phrase Scheiner called "hyperbole" because the medical records also disclosed he previously had problems with his heart and takes blood thinners.

"'Outstanding health'? With that history, I wouldn't call it outstanding health," Scheiner said.

Elizabeth Warren, 70, released a one-page medical report this month from her physician concluding the Massachusetts senator " is in excellent health" and listed a number of tests showing a normal heartbeat, cholesterol, blood pressure, and other vital signs. Unlike Biden, Warren excluded a detailed record of her medical history. Instead, her physician made a passing mention to a thyroid disorder in which medication is prescribed.

Warren's doctor also mentioned exams such as mammogram tests and that she recently had a flu shot.

Scheiner said it seemed like Warren is in good health but said he would want more information on all of the candidates. Bernie Sanders, 78, hasn't released his medical records yet but had a heart attack in October.

Scheiner signed off on Obama's health ahead of his presidential campaign, and while he still believes the former president had a clean bill of health and that another assessment would have been "superfluous," he firmly believes that all candidates for the presidency should disclose far more medical information than they do now and that it should be collected and disclosed by an independent medical panel.

"The stakes are too high," Scheiner said. "If they make a mistake because their cognitive skills are diminished, we pay the price."

Could Hunter Biden Cost His Father the Election?

The GOP is turning a strategy it used against Hillary Clinton on Joe Biden

As soon as Joe Biden reclaimed his position as the front-runner for the Democratic nomination, the right set its sights once more on his son Hunter. Two days after Biden's South Carolina victory, Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin announced that he would soon subpoena the first witness in a Republican Senate probe into Hunter Biden's work for the Ukrainian gas utility Burisma. Conservatives seized on the news with undisguised glee. The day after Super Tuesday, Trump said he'd make Hunter "a major issue in the campaign. I will bring that up all the time," and Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum asked Kellyanne Conway if we could expect to hear "a lot more about investigations into the Biden family."

Conservative pundits had been banging on about Burisma for months, but they are now ramping up their focus on Hunter's ties to the D.C. consultancy Blue Star Strategies, which allegedly lobbied the State Department on behalf of Burisma and other political groups in Ukraine. One of the founders of Blue Star, a former Clinton administration official named Sally Painter, had previously served with Hunter on the board of a national security think tank. While their connection is nothing nefarious, Republicans seem to be preparing to use it to run the same playbook they wielded against Hillary Clinton portraying a mundane ethics issue as evidence that the Democratic candidate is irredeemably embedded in the Washington establishment.

Biden may emerge unscathed. He has much higher favorability ratings than Clinton, and he will be running this fall against a toxic incumbent who has just botched a pandemic response. But if conservatives can paint Biden as a nepotistic swamp creature, they may be able to eat away at his core message: that his election would represent a return to the politics of integrity. As long as Johnson's Senate probe produces a steady drip of revelations, conservative outrage will lead to damaging news cycles in the mainstream media. Eventually, those stories will cloud out the facts, and the only thing voters will remember is that Hunter did shady stuff somewhere, at some time.

Trump, of course, has done far worse (his own sons have quietly sold off more than $100 million in real estate since 2016), but he excels at shifting the blame onto others, and his sons are already playing offense. In March, Don Jr. challenged Hunter to a debate to "talk about who profited off of whose public service." With a pandemic spreading through the country and both their fathers sheltering from infection, this race may soon devolve into an election fought by proxy, one son against the other.
