The long hot summer of hell continues for Joe Biden whose frontrunner status is slipping away even faster than his memory.
Capping off a week during which he verbally abused a reporter who asked about the small crowd sizes at his events, stunned an audience by asking them to imagine Barack Obama’s assassination and forgot which state he was in during a campaign stop, Biden once again stepped in it.
The former vice president made an appeal to supporters that he wasn’t “going nuts” although the growing pile of evidence to the contrary would seem to indicate just the opposite.
Biden: “I just spoke at Dartmouth on health care, at the medical school — or not — I guess it wasn’t actually on the campus because people from the medical school were — I want to be clear, I’m not going nuts. I’m not sure whether it’s a medical school or where the hell I spoke.” pic.twitter.com/k5VWObFXSm

Via The Washington Free Beacon, “Biden: ‘I’m Not Going Nuts’”:
Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden told supporters in New Hampshire on Friday he was “not going nuts,” when he stumbled over the location of where he spoke at an event a few hours earlier.
“We are so close, so close to being able to do some incredible things for this country. Incredible things,” Biden said. “I just spoke at Dartmouth on health care at the medical school or not—I guess I wasn’t actually on the campus, but the people from the medical school—I want to be clear. I’m not going nuts and I’m not sure whether it was a medical school or where the hell I spoke, but it was on the campus.”
Just like he didn’t know that he was even in New Hampshire when he praised the beauty of Vermont, its not a good sign for lunchbucket Joe who is already facing questions about his age and whether he is mentally fit for a grueling stretch of primaries next year.

While known for his gaffes, Biden’s slippage has manifested itself in a baffling series of misstatements including his botching of the year when Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King were assassinated which he said was in the late 1970s (they were killed in 1968) and that he was vice president during the 2018 Parkland, FL high school shootings.

Biden also mixed up former British Prime Minister Theresa may with long-dead Margaret Thatcher, said that “Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids,” and in classic Biden-speak, proclaimed that “We choose truth over facts.”

President Trump has been sitting back and licking his chops over the prospect of facing Biden on a debate stage next fall for all the marbles and has relished in mocking the befuddled geriatric gaffe machine.
Joe Biden just said, “We believe in facts, not truth.” Does anybody really believe he is mentally fit to be president? We are “playing” in a very big and complicated world. Joe doesn’t have a clue!

Not only did Biden plead with his tiny crowd of supporters that he wasn’t going nuts, but in another inexplicable senior moment, actually told people that if they had questions about his age that he didn’t want their votes.
In a gaggle with reporters just now in Keene, NH @JoeBiden responded to a question regarding voters that have expressed concerns about his age:
“I say if they’re concerned, don’t vote for me,” Biden said.

Regardless of his signs of senility and the likely prospect that he will implode in front of a nationally televised audience during an upcoming debate, the media continues to provide cover for Biden.
As a lifelong denizen of the swamp, they know that he can be reliably counted on to bring back the good old days before Trump kicked down the outhouse door.
Barring Hillary Clinton swooping in to rescue Democrats, the doddering Biden is the best hope of an establishment that is willfully blind to the fact that Trump will make mincemeat out of him and send the resistance into the streets to scream at the sky come election day.
