Half a mind to be president

I have set the over/under on President Biden’s mental capacity at 40 percent. He has half a mind to be president. Yesterday he read the instruction inserted in the text of his remarks to “Pause” for the crowd to take up the chant of “Four more years.”

The White House has posted the transcript of Biden’s remarks to North America’s Building Trades Union National Legislative Conference here. However, Biden’s reading of the instruction to “pause” has mysteriously disappeared from the transcript. The transcript substitutes “(inaudible).” Below is a screenshot of the transcript passage.

John posted video here yesterday. Below is the 11-second clip of the passage above. Pause, indeed.

Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.
