President Biden’s topic was one of utmost importance Wednesday — crime and gun violence. But you wouldn’t know it from the way he spoke.
He slurred his words. He called the ATF “the AFT.” At one point, he talked about the history of the Second Amendment and “the blood of patriots” before concluding that someone would need nuclear weapons to take down the government. If you weren’t confused, you were horrified.
Biden was obviously tired, speaking in barely a monotone. He couldn’t pronounce “cognitive.”
The media would pick apart every appearance of President Donald Trump, saying, even in news stories, that he was “manic,” “exhausted” or some other adjective. Yet a protective circle has formed around Biden, preventing them from stating the obvious: Joe Biden, 78, looked out of it.
Maybe Biden was having an off day. But he’s had a number of them. And his team keeps hustling him off stage as the media shouts after him, making you wonder why they keep preventing him from answering questions.
BIDEN: "Those who say the blood of Patriots, you know, and all the stuff about how we’re gonna have to move against the government.”
"If you think you need to have weapons to take on the government, you need F-15s and maybe some nuclear weapons."pic.twitter.com/WVHUffpphP

The American people will decide if the president has the energy or sharpness to lead us. But let’s stop acting like we’re not allowed to mention it.
