Don’t Believe Your Lying Eyes!

Here is another way to tell that Democrats are panicking: They feel obliged to deal, somehow, with the fact that Joe Biden is senile. The Washington Post headlines: “How Republicans used misleading videos to attack Biden in a 24-hour period.”

President Biden, who at 81 is a couple of decades younger than many of the veterans he honored during Thursday’s D-Day commemoration in Normandy…

Well then, he is practically youthful! Of course, the centenarians are not running for president.

…nonetheless found his age and fitness in the spotlight as selectively edited clips of him circulated online to paint the picture of a physically and mentally challenged commander in chief.
In edited videos…

Pretty much every video you ever see is edited, cut down from a much longer source.

…Republican officials and allies of former president Donald Trump repeatedly tried to turn Biden’s Normandy visit into a highlight reel of senior moments and missteps, aimed at showing the president as infirm, addled or out of his depth. Trump, who turns 78 on Friday…

Trump is old, too! However, he isn’t senile.

…has also repeatedly attacked Biden over his age and fitness, and regularly shares videos of the president looking frail.

The Post actually makes one decent point: the video you likely have seen that shows Biden starting to sit down and then stopping, apparently confused, isn’t as bad as it looks if you see a longer excerpt. Congratulations, Joe. But the Post says nothing about Biden’s Juneteenth brain freeze, his multiple incidents of falling down, his frequent descents into incoherence, his need to be led around to show him where to stand, his inability to read a teleprompter, and so on. Many dozens of episodes of obvious senility have been preserved on video, and many millions of Americans have seen them.

The Post republishes the DNC’s position on Biden’s obvious shortcomings:

“Republicans have resorted to pathetically manipulating and distorting footage of President Biden because they can’t successfully attack his record of delivering results for the American people,” Mia Ehrenberg, a spokeswoman for Biden’s campaign, said in a statement.

Yes, that’s the ticket! Let’s forget Biden’s senility and focus on Bidenflation, the withdrawal from Afghanistan, the open border, Biden’s attempt to force us all into EVs, the woke agenda, and our “trans” military. Those issues are super popular with the voters.

So the bottom line is, Democrats are worried about the fact they are running an already senile–in fact, obviously senile–president for re-election to another four-year term, and they are desperate to change the subject. Somehow, I don’t think it is going to work.
