In an interview with ABC News Wednesday President Joe Biden said he would run for re-election if he was “in good health.”
“If I’m in the health I’m in now – I’m in good health – then, in fact, I would run again,” Biden said.
Joe Biden is 79-years-old and if ran for reelection in 2024 he would be 82 on inauguration day.
Biden claims to be “in good health” but he’s demonstrably in poor health, physically and mentally. He walks gingerly as if bracing for a fall should his legs give out on him. If he didn’t have a retinue of Secret Service Agents trailing him day and night, he wouldn’t be allowed to leave the front door without a medical alert bracelet. He’s not a spring chicken, if he gave up the ghost his remains would be so calcified, they would be rejected as McDonald’s chicken nuggets.
You don’t have to be a physician to deduce that Biden has lost a couple of steps physically speaking, and you don’t have to be a psychiatrist to notice that he’s lost more than a couple of steps speaking in cognitive terms.
Is there a respected Democrat leader with the courage and good conscience to counsel Biden privately that he’s too old to be president? The fact that he’s considering running for reelection is proof that he’s suffering from narcissism, white privilege and dementia.
If Biden doesn’t do the right thing and promise not to run for reelection, Democrats with presidential aspirations should start their presidential campaigns today. Running for president is a years-long endeavor, and there’s no time to waste.
