Joe Biden is a decent human being, and a moderate Democrat with decades of experience in the political realm. A plagiarism scandal derailed a previous presidential run, but other than that there are no skeletons in his closet.
The only opening that Trump sees is Biden’s advanced age, and so the 74-year-old Trump has been painting the 77-year-old Biden as a senile old man who can’t complete a speech without uttering a series of gaffes.
Truth be told, both men seem to be suffering from mental decline, the most glaring difference is that the senile and evil Trump may nuke North Korea while the worst thing the senile but good-natured Biden may do is smother his hot dog with Vaseline instead of mustard.
Trump’s strategy of systematically lowering expectations for Biden backfired when he performed far better than anticipated when he delivered his speech at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night.
Biden had a very low bar to meet, he didn’t stutter, drool, or take off his dentures to readjust them in the middle of his speech. Unlike Trump he kept to his script, and delivered it in a calming and reassuring tone.
Even Fox News anchors and analysts had to grudgingly admit that Biden exceeded expectations. Biden’s ability to read from a teleprompter without flubbing a line doesn’t bode well for Trump, Sleepy Joe or Slow Joe is going to beat him to the finish line come November 3.
