Amidst the Wuhan virus pandemic, the DNC decided to still hold one of their debates, though without an audience and having the two debaters a good six feet apart from each other to encourage social distancing. But regardless of there being a virus out there or not, the highlights still included Joe’s cognitive decline (although Bernie also showed a bit of cognitive decline at one point too).
When discussing the relevant topic of the Wuhan virus (which no Leftist will dare call it that in spite of the very clear and serious damage the Chinese have caused to the whole world), the former Vice President mistakenly said that the Obama administration had dealt with the Coronavirus, when in fact it had to deal with the swine flu (H1N1): “We’ve been through this before with the coronavirus”; once he realized his mistake, he called the swine flu “N1H1” “… excuse me, we’ve been through this before dealing with… the N1H1”, and outright forgot the name of the Ebola virus, instead calling it “what happened in Africa.” At one point, he also mistook the Wuhan virus for SARS.
Definitely not as massive blunders as he had made previously, but they show the consistency of his declining mental health. However, Joe wasn’t the only one to have made a mistake in this debate. Bernie Sanders also made a similar mistake, often confusing the Wuhan virus for Ebola, saying “The Ebola crisis, in my view, exposes the dysfunctionality of our healthcare system.”
Funny enough, Joe Biden actually said something that I agree with, in that he argued against Bernie saying that Italy, which currently has 24,747 total cases (according to Worldometers) and nearly 2,000 deaths, has single-payer healthcare: “With all due respect to Medicare-for-All, you have a single-payer system in Italy. It doesn’t work there. Medicare-for-All… would not solve the problem at all.”
So kudos to Joe Biden for that little tid bit of not going straight up communist (though he did also support many other far-Left policies throughout the debate).
Fox News reported on the rest of the debate, saying:
“Throughout, Biden staked out unusually left-wing positions for a front runner – including promising that no one would be deported in his first 100 days in office, and by asserting that there would be ‘no new fracking’ under his administration. Fracking, while opposed by environmental activists, has revitalized the economies of battleground states and is expected to be a major issue in the general election.”
He also promised that he would not allow for the oil industry to continue to drill anywhere at all, essentially promising to destroy that entire industry, leaving hundreds of thousands of people without a job (and sending us into an energy crisis the likes of which had only been found in fiction). So the guy still has enough cognitive ability to demonstrate how much of a socialist he is, despite the fact that so many are trying to paint him as a “moderate” candidate.
Apart from his hardline attack on Medicare-for-All, he still said that treatment, testing, etc. for the Wuhan virus should be completely free (meaning the taxpayer is left with the bill, so it’s not free and not very different from Medicare-for-All in the first place), promised not to deport any illegal immigrants, even if they committed major crimes apart from illegally crossing the border such as rape, murder, etc. for his first 100 days (which is a bit of an odd argument because it makes zero sense to approach it that way even if you believe in “illegal immigrant rights”), promised to eliminate fracking, which has enriched middle America, and promised to eliminate all oil drilling and operations. All of these promises are far-Left, socialist promises, so it makes no sense for anyone to genuinely believe the guy is in any way, shape, manner or form a “moderate”.
It’s kind of worrying that the guy’s mental abilities are leaving him, but he can still remember to be a complete authoritarian should he choose to. Again, there weren’t as many blunders that were quite as big as the other ones, but they were still very much present.
Confusing the virus we are currently facing with the one we faced back in 2009, confusing the virus the Obama administration had to face by calling it “N1H1”, confusing the Wuhan virus for SARS and outright not remembering the Ebola virus, despite the fact that that was the last major virus people were talking about prior to the Wuhan virus highlights the decline of his cognitive senses.
