Joe Biden Stumbling on Steps of Air Force One a Symbol of America’s Declining Power

Joe Biden

Air Force One is the most recognizable symbol of the presidency; it exudes the power and dominance of the American president.

Emblazoned with the words “United States of America,” the American flag and the Seal of the President of the United States, it is a billboard of our economic, political and military might wherever it flies.

When Air Force One lands in a foreign country, foreigners feel a sense of awe and privilege that the most powerful man in the world has deigned to visit their country.

For the image of American hegemony not to be shattered a president must simply ascend and descend Air Force One without stumbling.

On numerous occasions Joe Biden has stumbled climbing the ramp to Air Force One, exposing himself as a feeble octogenarian who is in desperate need of a Secret Service agent to escort him when climbing stairs.

Imagine if Biden stumbles climbing down instead of climbing up Air Force One, he’ll break every bone in his body.

Air Force One is a symbol of the power of the presidency, but when Biden stumbles climbing up the ramp he is a symbol of the declining power of the world’s greatest democracy.

Biden should stop embarrassing America, resign, and walk into the sunset using a walker.

Biden Dismisses Trump by Making Sign of the Cross

Joe Biden

During a speech in Philadelphia where President Biden introduced his budget proposal, he made a quick reference to Donald Trump and then just as quickly dismissed him.

The crowd jeered at the mention of the twice-impeached president; you’d think he had invoked the name of the Antichrist or the Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback.

“I had a big fight with the former president, and maybe future president,” Biden said at the event in Philadelphia, referring to the 2020 election battle.

“Bless me father,” Biden said, then made the sign of the cross.

As a progressive who treasures the separation of church and state, I instinctively feel like giving Biden the finger whenever he makes the sign of the cross.

But I will forgive Biden’s venial sin of making a religious symbol, because I appreciate the way he summarily dispatched the execrable Republican frontrunner.

It’s axiomatic that Trump is an evil sociopath. if you’re a Catholic you don’t have to deliver a sermon detailing the myriad ways he is evil incarnate, you can simply dismiss him by making the sign of the cross.

The sign of the cross is universally understood by Catholics and fans of horror flicks as a sure-fire way of dispatching the devil to hell where he belongs.

Biden should follow this template if he runs for reelection: make fleeting references to Trump and then devote his stump speeches to policy issues.

Biden Should Refrain from Making the Sign of the Cross

Joe Biden

President Joe Biden drew laughs when he invoked the name of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, and then made the sign of the cross as heavenly protection from uttering the accursed name.

Biden, a devout Catholic, occasionally makes the sign of the cross in joking manner. The religious gesture has several meanings, including as a blessing and as a protection from evil entities.

When Biden, the president of a secular democracy, makes the overtly religious gesture, he does so assuming that the electorate is cognizant of its meaning, and is not offended by it.

Making the sign of the cross is a tangible way of marking yourself as a Christian, especially a Roman Catholic. Protestants, including evangelicals, rarely if ever make the sign of the cross.

Millions of Americans, including devout Catholics who value the separation of church and state, are offended whenever Biden makes the sign of the cross, even when it’s in a joking manner.

Biden not only represents Catholics, he also represents Protestants of all stripes, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, and atheists, and he should refrain from making any religious gestures.

If I ever witness Biden making the sign of the cross, I will respond with a gesture of my own, the finger.

Karine Jean-Pierre is a Horrible Spokesperson and Joe Biden is a Horrible Communicator


The Biden administration’s current press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, who took over from her brilliant predecessor Jen Psaki last May, is manifestly unfit for her job. Psaki was competent, quick on her feet, witty, and possessed a stand-up comic’s gift for dismissing hecklers such as Fox News’ Peter Doocy. In contrast Pierre’s default expression is befuddled, she speaks in word salads and is rarely able to finish a sentence without referring to her notebook. The aforementioned Doocy, who is no genius, enjoys toying with her.

Pierre has made a litany of false statements, but on Tuesday she made the most patently false and ridiculous statement in her role as the White House press secretary. President Biden is the best communicator in the White House she said, eliciting bipartisan laughter from the White House Correspondents.

Ronald Reagan was the Great Communicator, Barack Obama was the Great Orator, Donald Trump was the Great Dog Whisperer, and Joe Biden may be the Great Mumbler, but he sure as hell isn’t a great communicator. Biden who suffers from cognitive decline and stutters, is the worst speaker in American politics.

Two things are abundantly clear: Biden is a horrible communicator and Pierre is a horrible spokesperson, and she should immediately be replaced by someone with the skill set of a Psaki.

Joe Biden is the Cringiest Politician in History


Dictionary definition of cringey:

Cringey refers to someone or something that causes you to feel awkward, uncomfortable, or embarrassed—that makes you cringe.

Joe Biden is cringey AF.

Whether or not Biden is senile may be debatable, but there is a universal consensus that Biden is the embodiment of cringe.

Do I really need to enumerate all the reasons why Biden is the cringiest politician in history?

Let’s start with his penchant for sniffing hair. No female from prepubescent girls to post-menopausal women is safe from the sniffer-in-chief. There is actually a name for Biden’s unusual fetish: Trichophilia, also known as a hair fetish, is when someone feels sexually aroused by or attracted to human hair. Biden should retire and live in a nursing home, where only blue-haired old ladies will be subject to his perversion.

Then there’s his habit of whispering to make a point. At some point during most of his speeches, the old geezer will fold his arms and rest them on the lectern, lean into the mic and whisper whatever point he’s trying to make. He looks as cringey and creepy as a child molester whispering in to the ear of a little girl: Honey, do you want some candy?

Let’s not forget his history of telling tall tales from the millions of miles he’s traveled on Amtrak to his epic encounter with Corn Pop. If Corn Pop the gang leader was a real person and not an apocryphal character he would have beat the hell of the teen Biden.

What really creeps me out is Biden’s custom of shaking hands with his imaginary friends after delivering a speech.

Case closed. Biden is cringey AF.

Only These 5 Things Will Prevent Biden from Running for Reelection


President Biden has been hinting for weeks that he will soon be announcing that he’s running for reelection. In spite of the fact that the octogenarian Leader of the Free World has one foot in the grave, and the other one on a banana peel, he will probably announce his candidacy shortly after he delivers the State of the Union Speech.

Biden is as stubborn as he is senile, and he won’t tolerate anyone walking on his front lawn, sitting on his favorite chair or trying to dissuade him from running for reelection.

These are the only things that will make Biden change his mind about running for reelection:

The FBI rummages through the ho bag of one of Hunter Biden’s prostitute pals and discovers a toothbrush, mints, a switchblade, semen-encrusted thongs, rubbers and classified documents.

It’s discovered that Biden plagiarized his State of the Union Address from Barack Obama, or that he wrote it with the help of ChatGPT app.

Biden sniffs the hair of Kamala Harris during a photo op and gleefully declares that she smells better than Pam Grier, Beyonce, Corn Pop’s girlfriend and Hunter’s favorite black stripper.

After delivering a speech, as is his wont, Biden shakes the hand of an imaginary friend, but this time he outdoes himself by patting the butt of another, and French kissing a third.

Biden accidentally swallows his dentures while delivering a speech, Jill performs the Heimlich maneuver, and his dentures fly out of his mouth striking a little girl in the eye, and blinding her.

For the love of God, I hope one of these things will happen to prevent the calamity of a second Biden administration.

Epitome of Cringey: Biden Kneeling in Front of Golden State Warriors


During important occasions families attempt to keep grandpa from doing something embarrassing, inappropriate or just plain weird that will sully the memorable moment. During a wedding they will keep him from getting too close to the wedding cake in fears that he will topple it, and during a party they will tell him it’s his bed time before he gets too sloshed and attempts the M3gan dance.

Joe Biden is 80-freaking-years-old and well into his second childhood, and unfortunately as president he presides over many significant events, and it’s almost impossible to stop him from doing something cringey or embarrassing. After all, who’s going to caution the Leader of the Free World to please behave himself?

The octogenarian president mortified his friends and delighted his critics after he chose to take a knee during a photo opportunity when meeting the 2022 NBA Championship team, the Golden State Warriors.

During their meeting on Tuesday, Biden took a knee in front of the team for a photo with Vice President Kamala Harris and the team, prompting nervous laughter from those in attendance.

Kamala Harris is pretty cringey herself, but she had enough sense not to drop to her knees in front of the NBA team, shouting, “I’m not doing that.”

Biden even posted the embarrassing photo on Twitter. It’s time for America to tell the doddering president that he needs to take a long nap after his term mercifully ends.

Don’t Run Joe! For the Love of God, Don’t Run Joe Biden


“Don’t Run Joe, a progressive campaign seeking a new Democratic nominee to represent the party in 2024, is placing mobile billboards around D.C. monuments to urge President Joe Biden to not seek re-election.”

Fox News

It’s not Trump’s MAGA army that is placing these mobile billboards, but progressives who realize that if the octogenarian president runs for reelection he won’t have the physical stamina, mental acuity or social awareness to defeat an extremist Republican in 2024, whether it’s Trump or a clone like Ron DeSantis.

“Most Democrats Say Don’t Run Joe,” the truck sign reads in bold letters as it sits parked in front of landmarks, like the White House, the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial.

This old school billboard is the perfect advertisement vehicle (no pun intended) to reach a senile old man with myopic eyesight.

The message is concise: Don’t Run Joe. A simple message that even an old man suffering from dementia can remember.

The billboard is the epitome of truth in advertising, according to polls the vast majority of Democrats don’t want Biden to run for reelection.

Biden has hinted that he will be soon announce that he is running for reelection, therefore it’s incumbent upon Democratic leaders to urge him not to run immediately.

An open Democratic primary would feature a new generation of leaders with the physical stamina, charisma, and youthful energy to defeat whatever extremist candidate wins the 2024 Republican nomination.

Don’t Run Joe!!

What if Joe Biden or Donald Trump Urinated on Themselves in Public?

Biden and Trump

A journalists’ union in South Sudan asserted Friday that six staffers with the national broadcaster are detained in connection with footage apparently showing the country’s president urinating on himself during an event.

The South Sudan Broadcasting Corporation footage aired in December and was widely shared online. It showed 71-year-old President Salva Kiir standing during the national anthem and then looking down at what appeared to be a spreading stain before the camera turned away.”

The Hill

The septuagenarian President Salva Kiir presides over a nation beset with rampant corruption, economic collapse and where the military routinely commits atrocities against journalists, foreign aid workers and anybody else who criticizes the government. It’s hardly surprising that journalists were arrested for broadcasting video of the president peeing on himself.

South Sudan is a third world hellhole, and nobody in the West bats an eye when journalists are arrested for having the temerity to do their job.

But how would American broadcasters be treated if they aired footage of 76-year-old Donald Trump or 80-year-old Joe Biden soiling themselves during a public event?

First let me say that I wouldn’t be surprised if Joe Biden who has a penchant for shaking hands with imaginary friends and who needs to be escorted off the stage after a speech urinated on himself in public.

And I wouldn’t be surprised if Donald Trump whose incoherent and inflammatory speeches can best be described as diarrhea of the mouth crapped or wet himself during one of his diatribes.

America is not a perfect country but free speech still prevails, and news outlets wouldn’t face any prosecution from the government for airing video of the president urinating on himself.

If Joe Biden wet himself during a public event, CNN, MSNBC and the rest of the mainstream media would demand that we make allowances for a senior citizen, and denounce as ageists anyone who dared mock him.  Fox News, Newsmax and the rest of the conservative media would have a field day, mocking and ridiculing the octogenarian president and demanding that he immediately resign. Social media would be flooded with memes of Leaky Joe taking a whiz on Corn Pop.

If Donald Trump urinated on himself the mainstream media would marvel how such a tremendous flow of urine could emanate from such a tiny mushroom-shaped penis. Conservative media would claim that it was a conspiracy, that the godless liberals somehow managed to digitally alter video in real time to make it appear as though Trump lost control of his bladder. Social media would be flooded with memes of Trump pissing in public while shouting: I got your golden showers right here.

For the love of God let’s pray that 2024 won’t be a re-run of 2020, let’s avoid the likelihood of President Trump or President Biden pissing themselves in public.

Joe Biden & His Rosary Beads Are an Embarrassment to the United States


“The next Republican that tells me I’m not religious I’m going to shove my rosary beads down their throat.”

Joe Biden

“Biden, the son of working-class Irish Catholics, is a staunch Catholic who attends Mass weekly. His faith is of such nature that in 1988, when he underwent brain surgery for a life-threatening aneurysm, he asked doctors whether he could tuck his rosary beads under his pillow.”


In enlightened European countries it isn’t considered a virtue or an asset if a candidate is religious. In fact, if a candidate for political office is overtly religious, it’s considered a liability.

It’s only in America where politicians make an ostentatious display of being spiritual whenever they run for office. They invoke the name of Jesus in their stump speeches and claim that evangelical leaders are close advisors. It’s not a fatal handicap for a candidate to be a serial philanderer, pathological liar, blatant racist, bumbling buffoon or a soulless psychopath, as long as he professes faith in Jesus Christ.

Joe Biden is a typical politician and he takes great pains to appear to be a devout Catholic. He claims to always carry rosary beads with him, and he’s often seen clutching them in his hands. Rosary beads are a string of beads that are used to help count of prayers, if anyone needs help to keep track of how many times he’s prayed Hail Mary, it’s Joe Biden.

Can you imagine what heads of state think when they see Biden fingering his rosary beads? The Leader of the Free World uttering a dozen Hail Marys to provide him insight into solving the intractable problems facing the world. Joe Biden you are a freaking embarrassment to the United States.

Praying the rosary is as efficacious as farting or belching. The only practical purpose that rosary beads have is using them as anal beads. Biden shouldn’t stuff his rosary beads down anyone’s throat, maybe he should just stuff them up his ass.

I’d Rather Vote for Corn Pop Than Joe Biden

Corn Pop

“President Joe Biden drew criticism from social media after responding with a long pause when asked in an interview if first lady Jill Biden would support him running for office again in 2024.

‘Dr. Biden is for it?’ MSNBC’s Jonathan Capehart asked Biden about a 2024 run in a clip that aired Friday. Biden then paused and looked down at the floor, prompting Capehart to follow up with, ‘Mr. President?’

‘Dr. Biden thinks that, my wife thinks that,’ Biden said before pausing again. ‘That we’re doing something very important, and I shouldn’t walk away from it.’”

Yahoo News

This disturbing episode in not an aberration, the commander-in-chief has a penchant for shaking hands with invisible people, losing his orientation when walking off a stage, and losing his thought while delivering a speech or even answering a simple question.

When a friendly reporter asked Biden in an interview if his wife would support him running for office again in 2024, he slipped into a fugue state, leaving the TV audience wondering if:

The president had fallen asleep?

If he was trying to remember the answer he’d rehearsed with his handlers?

If he was preoccupied wondering if his diapers were leaking?

If he was reminiscing about his halcyon days working as a lifeguard when little black kids rubbed his legs while he fended off Corn Pop, who was a really bad dude.

What’s up with Joe Biden? The answer is that his cognitive skills are so diminished that at this point Corn Pop would make a better president.

America Stuck in a Gerontocracy, We Need Much Younger Republican and Democratic Leaders

Old Farts

Last week’s January 6 Committee hearing featured a video depicting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi expressing her desire to punch Donald Trump on January 6, 2021.

Understandably, emotions were running high on Insurrection Day, but since the release of the video she hasn’t walked back her words. I’m sure she would punch Trump if she ever met him in private.

Can you imagine 82-year-old Pelosi delivering a haymaker punch to 76-year-old Trump. Before the punch landed, Trump would have time to change his diapers and comb his urine-colored hair.

The geriatric old farts in leadership positions in the Republican and Democratic parties have permeated the political process with an unspeakable stench.

I would love to see Pelosi and Trump in the boxing ring, but even better would be a Battle Royale featuring Joe Biden, Donald Trump, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Grassley, Dianne Feinstein, Jim Risch, Bernie Sanders, Mitch McConnell, Patrick Leahy, Chuck Schumer, Richard Shelby and Jim Inhofe.

Hopefully none of these old men and women with white entitlement up the wazoo would survive the Battle Royale.

It’s time for a younger and more diverse generation to take over. I’m sick and tired of these old farts, they stink to high heaven, every last one of them.  

Biden Turns 80 Next Month, God Help Us

Jope Biden

An 80th birthday is a milestone that is celebrated and cherished; you throw a bodacious birthday bash for a man who has beaten the odds and lived to become an octogenarian.

Most 80th birthday parties are held in retirement homes of one kind or another, and the nursing staff reminds the birthday boy to put on his choppers so he can enjoy his birthday cake.

President Joe Biden will turn 80 next month, becoming the first commander-in-chief to become an octogenarian while in office. (How scary is that?)

Biden is suffering from severe mental decline, and I doubt that he will remember his birthday, unless his reminded by his spouse or his aides. The White House will no doubt hold a low-key celebration, because the last thing the administration wants is to remind the electorate that Biden is older than dirt just a few days before the midterms.

If Biden runs for reelection and wins, he would be 82 when he takes the oath of office for the second time.

It’s incumbent upon Biden’s wife, his aides and Democratic leaders to beg him not to run for reelection. It’s time for a new generation of leaders, Trump belongs in an insane asylum and Biden belongs in a retirement home.

America Doesn’t Deserve to Survive as a Democracy If It’s Biden vs Trump Again in 2024

Biden vs Trump

Most Democrats grudgingly admit that Biden’s mental acuity is on the decline, but they argue that dealing with his cognitive issues is a small price to pay considering his commitment to democracy, racial equality and the liberal agenda.

Their mindset seems to be: Old Joe has always been a gaffe machine, and now that he’s almost eighty the bats in his belfry are in a frenzy, but a kind man suffering from dementia is better than a psychopath suffering from mental decline.

True, Biden is a thousandfold better than Trump, but why should we have to settle for a batty octogenarian in the White House in 2024?

There is nothing amusing or endearing about President Joe Biden’s alarming cognitive decline. I wince, not smile, when he shakes hands with one of his imaginary friends. It’s cute when your grandpa shakes hands with invisible people, but it’s terrifying when the President of the United States and Leader of the Free World is manifestly delusional.

There are too many geriatric incumbents of both parties in leadership positions, it’s time to hand the baton to a younger generation.

If it’s Biden vs Trump again in 2024, America doesn’t deserve to survive as a democracy.

Biden’s Philadelphia Speech Interrupted by Pro-Trump Hecklers


Donald Trump stump speeches are so inflammatory, fiery and chock full of racist dog whistles, that any audience member with a shred of decency and integrity is almost compelled to heckle him.

During Trump’s two presidential runs he was often heckled, and he always responded by threatening hecklers with violence.

During last night’s speech about protecting democracy against Trump and his MAGA followers, Biden was frequently interrupted with cries of “Fuck Joe Biden” and “Let’s go Brandon”, a more polite way of expressing the same hateful sentiment.

President Joe Biden answered hecklers by reminding everyone that profane and obnoxious critics have their place, too. “They’re entitled to be outrageous, he said. “This is a democracy.”

The hecklers interrupting Biden’s speech with obscenities proved the premise of his speech that Trump’s MAGA supporters are unhinged and dangerous.

And Biden’s response proved that he understands that in a democracy even boorish hecklers are tolerated and not threatened with violence.

If the choice in 2024 is once again Trump vs Biden, anyone who heard the president’s speech last night knows that a vote for Biden is a vote for democracy and a vote for Trump is a vote for tyranny.

Befuddled Biden Struggles to Put on His Jacket

A video, posted to Twitter by the verified account “RNC Research” depicts the septuagenarian President Joe Biden desperately struggling to put on his jacket for an interminable 43 seconds, and then to add insult to insult, the bumbling Leader of the Free World, drops his signature aviator glasses.

I get that Biden had just stepped off Marine One, and he had to contend with the wind generated by the helicopter’s blade, but if it takes him almost a minute to figure out how to put on his jacket, that’s a sign of cognitive decline.

Not to mention that Biden needed the help of his longsuffering wife to put on his damn jacket. Makes you wonder if the first lady helps him put on his pants in the morning.

Biden was wearing a mask, and that’s just one too many things for the befuddled Biden to juggle at one time. Mask, sunglasses, jacket, something had to give.

Rep. Carolyn Maloney Apologizes for Saying She Doesn’t Think Joe Biden Will Run for Reelection

“On Tuesday night, Maloney appeared with her two rivals for New York’s 12th Congressional District for a debate hosted by NY1 and WNYC. During a lightning round, Maloney, Rep. Jerry Nadler and Suraj Patel were all asked if Biden should run in 2024.

‘I don’t believe he’s running for reelection,’ Maloney said.”

Huffington Post

During a lightning round portion of a debate a candidate is pressured into providing more truthful and less nuanced answers. Rep. Maloney was honest in expressing a belief that a 79-year-old president, in obvious cognitive decline, wasn’t going to run for reelection.

If Biden was asked in a lighting round session of a debate “how would you defend Taiwan if China invaded the island nation?”, I wouldn’t be surprised if the cognitively-challenged septuagenarian answered, “I would make Corn Pop an admiral, he wouldn’t need more than a tugboat to save Taiwan, because he’s a bad dude.”

On Thursday, Maloney offered the following apology, demonstrating once again why citizens despise wishy washy politicians:

“Mr. President, I apologize. I want you to run. You are a great president and thank you for everything you’ve done for my state and all the states and all the cities in America.”

Maloney had nothing to apologize about, it’s reasonable to believe that a senile president with approval ratings in the 30’s shouldn’t run for reelection.

Maloney apologized only because she wants the full backing of the Democrat Party in her own reelection effort.

Biden Must Announce He’s Not Running for Reelection Now

The likelihood that President Joe Biden will have serious primary challengers is rising as his polling numbers continue to sink, inflation continues to rise and his cognitive skills continue to decline.

A serious primary challenge to a sitting president is rare, but then again, we’ve never had a septuagenarian president who’s manifestly physical frail and cognitively impaired.

In 1980 President Jimmy Carter was able to successfully fend off a primary challenge by Senator Ted Kennedy, but the effort left him weak and battered and he ultimately lost to Ronald Reagan.

There is a slim to zero chance that a cognitively challenged Biden will come to his senses, announce that he’s not running for reelection and thereby avoid a contentious battle for the nomination. Biden has white privilege up the wazoo, and too much pride to do what’s good for his party and the country.

It’s becoming increasingly likely that Donald Trump will announce that he’s running for president before the mid term elections. I would advise Democrat presidential hopefuls like California Gov. Gavin Newsom and Illinois Governor J. B Pritzker to do likewise.

It takes years to mount a successful presidential campaign, and it’s imperative that serious presidential hopefuls declare their candidacy as soon as possible.

Biden is a stubborn imbecile and he doesn’t deserve any deference or respect, I beg the likes of Newsom and Pritzker to begin their presidential campaigns now.

Democrats and democracy itself can’t survive a Joe Biden or Kamala Harris 2024 presidential campaign.

Joe Biden’s Bike Fall a Timely Reminder He’s Too Old to Run for Reelection

President Joe Biden tumbled when he tried to dismount from his bike at the end of a ride Saturday at Cape Henlopen State Park near his beach home in Delaware, but he insisted he wasn’t injured.

Biden’s $599.00 Trek FX 1 Bide was tricked out to the max with a ton of accessories, including a wireless computer, a coiled cable lock, a bottle cage, and a rear-view mirror attached to the handlebars.

But the accessory that the accident-prone septuagenarian really needs are training wheels.

A reporter caught Biden walking gingerly out of church later that day, and asked him if he was OK, and he “hopped” a millimeter off the ground to “prove” he was just fine.

Biden is far from OK; his diminished mental acuity and physical agility should make him reconsider running for reelection.

Biden needs physical therapy for balance training and strengthening of his muscles and he would be well-advised to engage in brain training games to improve his cognition skills.

Biden rides his bike, with his retinue of Secret Service in tow in an attempt to prove he’s healthy, but he’s not fooling anyone. Not a good look, even Brad Pitt looks awful silly wearing a bike helmet.

Who Will be Named ‘Time Person of the Year’: Biden, Trump, Fauci or Movement for Racial Justice?

Trump has abdicated his responsibilities as president of the United States, and is wasting away the last days of his moribund administration sulking and trying to stage a coup in broad daylight.

But I predict he will stop tweeting his insane conspiracy theories about a rigged election long enough to watch NBC News at 10 p.m. tonight when TIME will reveal its 2020 “Person of the Year.”

As much as Trump rails against the mainstream news he seeks their validation. Last year Trump was furious when TIME named 16-year-old environmentalist activist Greta Thunberg as “Person of the Year” instead of the man-baby climate change-denying commander-in-chief.

Each year the magazine selects an individual, group or organization who has “greatly impacted the country and the world during the calendar year”, for good or ill.

This year’s finalists are: President-elect Joe Biden, the movement for racial justice, Dr. Anthony Fauci and front-line workers, and Donald Trump.

The movement for racial justice has brought the issues of police brutality against minorities, criminal-justice reform and systemic racism to the forefront, but I don’t think it will win.

Joe Biden is certainly deserving of the recognition; his campaign was given the last rites after his horrible showing in Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada, but the moderate septuagenarian was resurrected in South Carolina by Rep. Jim Clyburn’s endorsement and he went on to win the Democratic presidential nomination and capture the White House. But if Time anoints him as “Person of the Year”, Trump might lose it completely and nuke North Korea, and Time doesn’t want to be responsible for ushering in Armageddon.

Dr. Anthony Fauci has spoken truth to power and told America the unvarnished truth about the pandemic, and I predict he will be rewarded for putting science ahead of servility and integrity ahead of expediency.
