    Ever since Joe Biden announced he was running for president (he did it by video before holing up in his basement for most of the campaign), the legacy media has had his back, defending his endless gaffes, both small and large.

    But the legacy media truly outdid themselves this past weekend, turning a blind eye to the soon-to-be 80-year-old totally zoning out in the middle of a television interview - to the point where the interviewer had to say, "Mr. President?" to snap him out of his reverie.

    In one of his rare interviews, Biden sat down with MSNBC's Jonathan Capehart to talk 2024 ambitions. Capehart asked about recent polling that finds most Americans say Biden shouldn't run again because of his age.

    "The only reason to be involved in public life is: Can you make life better for other people," the president said.

    Capehart then asked Biden if he is going to run.

    "I have not made that formal decision but it's my intention, my intention to - and we have time to make that decision," he said.

    "Dr. Biden is for it?" Capehart asked, referring to first lady Jill Biden, who is not a medical doctor but holds an Ed.D., an education degree.

    Biden fell silent and appeared to take a long trip in his mind, prompting Capehart to try to snap him out of it. "Mr. President?" he said as Biden sat there stone-faced. Amid signs that Biden might be returning from his trip, Capehart said, "Ope," as in, "Oh, there you are."

    Yup, Biden was back - sort of. "Dr. Biden thinks that, uh, my wife thinks that, uh..." he said, followed by another long pause. "... that I, uh, that, that we're, that we're doing something very important and that I shouldn't walk away from it."


    The legacy media ignored the whole scene - even though if the former president had done it, hoo boy, it'd be wall-to-wall coverage for weeks. But one lawmaker ripped Biden, saying he's clearly not competent.

    "This is really sad, but he reminds me of a Madame Tussauds wax figure," Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-NY) said on Fox News. "He comes out, and they turn him on, and he delivers talking points that are presented to him by his shadow government, the staff behind him."

    "He's really showing that he's not competent to do this most important job in our nation. And I really, I joined on a letter with Congressman [Ronny] Jackson about making him subject to a cognitive test ... this is serious stuff. We've got enemies around the world. You've been interviewing tremendous people about China, about what's happening in the war in Europe, which is unprecedented," she said.

    "We've got to start looking into whether Joe Biden is actually capable of being the president. I think he's not. I think we should consider all of these avenues," Tenney said.

    Thirty-seven GOP lawmakers joined Rep. Jackson (R-TX) in signing the letter. "My colleagues and I are again asking President Biden to immediately undergo a formal cognitive screening exam, such as the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MOCA)," Jackson told Fox News Digital in an email.

    "As a former physician to three Presidents of the United States, I know what it takes mentally and physically to execute the duties of Commander-in-Chief and Head of State," Jackson said. "Joe Biden has continually proven to me and to the world that something isn't right. The American people deserve to have absolute confidence in their President's cognitive ability."

After one full year of the Biden /Harris Administration: Does Joe Biden have the intellectual capacity, and, or the energy to lead the United States of America through the mess that he predominately created ... in just one year?

Considering what is being reported as the most divisive presidential speech - September 1, 2022 - in modern American history, where over 74,000,000 people, many of whom are OUR greatest patriots, were named as fascists by inference or otherwise: Is Joe Biden clearly capable of governing all of the American People to the betterment of this Representative Republic?
  Yes, it is important that Haters are named.
  No, Joe Biden cannot accept criticism when the real truth is his cruelest taskmaster.
  I have no idea what is going on because I only consume Democratic Socialist Media.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
