The question of President Biden’s fitness to serve has been a core feature of the Fox News campaign of smears and character assassination from before Biden was even inaugurated. Never mind that a significant majority of the American people concluded by their votes that Biden was not only fit, but more mentally sound than Donald Trump according to a Fox News poll.

That affirmation by the people, however, has not deterred Fox News, and the Trump-addled Republican Party it speaks for, from persisting in their malicious misrepresentations.

On Tuesday morning, Trump’s Twitter ban defying spokes-shill posted a tweet that said only “25th amendment,” a reference to the constitutional amendment providing for relieving a mentally incompetent president from his duties. The post also retweeted a Republican operative’s photo of Biden holding some notes he used during a press conference.

Let’s set aside the assertion in the tweet that Biden “screwed up,” because there’s no evidence of that in the tweet. To the contrary, it shows that Biden accurately conveyed what his notes said about his previous comment that the genocidal butcher Vladimir Putin “cannot remain in power.” Biden maintained that he “was expressing the moral outrage I felt towards the actions of this man,” and that he “was not articulating a change in policy.” It was a message that he also delivered in response to a “silly” question by Fox’s Peter Doocy later the same day.
Nevertheless, according these Trump tongue waggers, Biden’s use of notes indicates some sort of cognitive failure. But what makes this all the more preposterous and hypocritical is that Trump himself frequently used similar notes. Here’s one where he required a cheat sheet to remind to show sympathy for victims a mass shooting:

So Trump needed this reminder to tell these mourners that “I hear you.” Really? And then there was the time that Trump needed notes to express his racist and misogynistic hatred for some Democratic women in Congress. Including his opinion that these American citizens should leave the country, saying that “if you are not happy here, you can leave.”

Finally, Trump needed a written reminder about how to reply to the fact that he extorted Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelenskyy in an effort to manufacture dirt on then-candidate Joe Biden. It was what he was impeached for, the first time. His notes even included him repeating himself:
“I want nothing. I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo. Tell Zelensky — President Zelensky to do the right thing. This is the final word from the president of the United States: I want nothing.”

Of course, Fox News joined in on this Biden bashing with a story entitled “Biden caught using cue cards in trying to paper over Ukraine gaffe about ousting Putin.” Needless to say, Fox’s story never mentioned all the times that Trump also used “cue cards” when dispensing his lies. And Tucker Carlson devoted a segment on his Monday night program to calling for the 25th Amendment to be used against Biden. He ranted that…
“Uncontrollable flashes of anger are common among people who are aging, particularly among men, and they often accompany senility. Losing it is a very frustrating experience and your heart goes out to anyone who is.”
Do you suppose that Carlson recognizes that his criticism fits Trump better than it does Biden? Trump is a walking fount of incessant and unfiltered anger. While Biden is known for his composure and calm rationality. If anyone was a candidate for the 25th Amendment, it was Donald Trump. And, more troubling, it still is, as he makes noises about running again in 2024.
If anything, Trump has gotten even worse, as he continues to rage about the 2020 election and the size of the shrinking crowds at his cult rallies. Perhaps he should get someone to write notes for him that actually reflect reality. Because he’s definitely not aware of it himself.

I think that people are forgetting that you have to be a hypocrite to get into the Republican party, it is one of the requirements. Seriously, these fascists are just throwing out red meat to their glassy eyed, moronic base. Those knuckle draggers would not believe that The Combover Caligula used notes even if they saw the proof. We are living in a time where facts don’t matter.
They would praise Trump for using notes. Even after criticizing Biden for doing it. They don’t require any consistency or logic.
From the Sermon From the Golf Mound posed by Cheato Mussolini yesterday abut his “hole-in-one.”
Fuck you, Donnie.
Hole-in-one? Big fat liar!!
Never happened! — Not from tee to hole it didn’t!!
Just look at his lousy, horrible form when golfing… No control of ball’s tragectory like that!
You’d think person who owns golf resorts & spends so much time on his own courses eould at least be able to look like he knows what he’s doing out there. But, narcissists are convinced that they know it all & are perfect already, so unable to ever learn a dam* thing, since would suggest golf pro knows better than Trump. Can’t have that! So he looks awful & very stupid on the course ~ plus, cheats like hell. Why he likes to bring along loyalists like Lindsay Graham, who’s fine with Trump cheating & never says a word about it.
I loved that. Trump saying that he doesn’t like bragging – while he is bragging. And his cult eats it up.
Trump is an old man. Anyone who doesn’t see that is like the adults with children watching their naked king in a parade. The little boy cried, “Mommy, that man doesn’t have any clothes on!” The adults couldn’t see. They were too brainwashed by their hero. Biden isn’t senile. He explained his statement about Putin as “moral outrage”- not desiring regime change. I say it came right from his heart. Putin is, as you say Mark, a “genocidal butcher”. Trump’s anger is more than apparent. He constantly screams about “THE STEAL!!” And Putin is his BFF.
The pic of a hand showing what’s supposed to be Biden’s notes looks fake. Or, at least that isn’t Biden’s hand holding the notes.
Besides, smart people making important speeches with facts, often use notes to reference, making sure to get it right. I like that in a leader, speaker.
People that don’t care if say things that are correct & are fine with lying their ass off, like Trump & many other GOP, don’t really need notes to refer to — unless dementia makes them forget what they were talking. about.
For Trump…with 99% of his shit being lies, saying something true must really confuse his puny little brain & forked tongue!
