Although it’s still early in the 2024 election season, the candidates for president for both parties are presumed to be settled. The incumbent, President Joe Biden, doesn’t face any serious challengers. And the Republicans are all too glassy-eyed and devoted to their Dear Leader, Donald Trump, to consider anyone else. Never mind the handful of GOP wannabes who are fantasizing that they have a shot at it.
Both Biden and Trump have vulnerabilities that are weighing on their respective campaigns. Trump’s are that he has four indictments and 91 felony charges pending against him, along with the fact that he is broadly despised as a lying, narcissistic, sexual assaulter, who tried to undermine democracy and impose an authoritarian dictatorship. Not to mention that he is also suffering from severe mental deterioration that is evident every time he speaks.
As for Biden, virtually the only criticism that his Republican opponents can cite is his age. Well, there’s is also their complaints that he is a “radical Marxist thug” who hates America, but let’s try to keep this assessment anchored to reality. Yes, Biden is old. But then so Trump. Yet somehow, only Biden’s age is an impediment to reelection.
This hypocrisy on the part of the press was on display Thursday morning when Biden met with reporters for a quick Q and A. As always, Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy was there. And as always, he asked the most asinine questions. The brief exchange between Doocy and Biden went as follows…
Doocy: Why do you think it is that people should be more concerned about abortion access than your age?
Biden: I don’t think it’s a comparable comparison.
Biden was exceedingly polite in his response. Indeed, it was a ridiculous comparison. A Doocy-to-Coherent dictionary might have translated his question as, “Why do you think it is that people should be more concerned with women being able to make decisions about their own healthcare, than about phony, partisan, political attacks by Republicans and Fox News? Did Doocy really expect an answer to that bull manure? And as if that weren’t bad enough, Doocy had a follow up…
Doocy: Why do you think it is that you’re trailing Trump in all these swing state polls?
Biden: Because you don’t read the polls. There are ten polls. Eight of them I’m beating him in those states. Eight of them. You guys only do two. CNN and the New York Times. Check it out.

Don’t expect Doocy to check that out. He is only interested in quick hits that he can send back to the Fox studio where they will edit it to make Biden look like he’s mentally incompetent. He probably doesn’t even know that the last Fox News poll showed Biden beating Trump. Which is something that even Trump notices, and frequently whines about on his failing social media scam, Truth Social.
Doocy’s questions are invariably irrelevant to anything that the American people care about. They are designed for one purpose: to try to get Biden to commit some sort of verbal gaffe that they can spend the next three days yammering about. However, Biden’s answers are further evidence of his mental acuity and good humor.
Not that any of that will get into Fox’s story when they get around to reporting this encounter. Anything that doesn’t meet their criteria for pro-Trump propaganda ends up on the editing room floor. Heaven forbid that Fox’s viewers might be exposed to the truth that Biden has a sharp intellect and a firm grasp on the issues. As opposed to Trump, the “stable genius” who is still trying to convince people that he won in 2020, by a landslide.
Trump has been saying for three years that he has "proof" that he won the 2020 election and that he will release it soon. What's he waiting for?
And how stupid do you have to be to still believe that nonsense? MAGA = Make America Gullible Again! https://t.co/FyGPxacNV6
