Joe Biden's Super-Afraid That Trump's China Tariffs Could Cause Us to Lose the "G5" Race

G5? The Gulfstream 5? Don't we already have that?

The mentally weak candidate, who is slower and less energetic than he was when he was younger but still also stupid, meant 5G networking capability.

Maybe he had a flashback to a particularly intense Bingo game and had a sense-memory of nailing that crucial G5 square.

Oh, and Joe Biden did the one absolute unpardonable sin in liberal circles -- He disagreed with a Gender Neutral Person, and made xim feel unsafe.

Treacher explains:

This is from a Wisconsinite named K.C. Cayo, who describes himself herselfthemself as: "Activist. Women's March WI Regional Director. NextGen WI. Queer. BLM. They/Them/Theirs."

Joe Berkowitz at Fast Company explains what's going on here:

Biden's response to her, as depicted in the photo above, articulates everything about where he stands on this and every other issue central to women. Let’s start with the face. It’s a hostage's smile, cranked to 11. There's a hint of playfulness in his eyes, a desperate need for it to be a light interaction he controls rather than a confrontation in which he's the subject. Those eyes mask a deep need to reiterate, in all seriousness, that Biden knows what he’s doing and that what he's doing is right, and if only she knew the degree to which he was right, she would get off his back about it and maybe thank him.

Then there's the finger. He's wagging it right in her face! A demonstration of dominance from the king of gesticulation.

I'm shocked that Berkowitz is cruelly ignoring Cayo's preferred pronouns, but otherwise this is obviously right.

Oh my God, I just got an email from Anne Frank, reading, "That poor Gender Neutral Person, I can't even imagine such horrors as a wagged finger."

Even David Axelrod, who worked with Biden as Obama's campaign manager and then, if I remember right, Chief of Staff, has doubts that this old dog can learn new molestation tricks.

A week ago, Joe Biden seemed to be sailing to the Democratic nomination.


But after his last, shambling week, the new question is "Can Biden hang on?"


The former VP and his campaign sowed new doubts with their clumsily shifting answers on the fundamental issue of federal funding of abortion.


When Biden was asked twice by a woman on the campaign trail whether he would support the repeal of Hyde, he gave her an unqualified yes. But when video of the exchange surfaced last week, his campaign said he had "misheard" the question and still supported the ban.

Twenty-four hours later, after drawing fire from opponents and pleas from supporters, Biden reversed field again and announced his opposition to Hyde.

Compounding the awkwardness of this flip-flop-flip were the post-mortem stories in which Biden's staff at first appeared to take credit for his change of mind and then said he made the decision himself in the car en route to the dinner at which he announced it.


First, he "misheard the question" may have been an honest answer but probably not the card you want to play too often when your candidate would be 78 the first day he occupies the Oval Office.

So far, Biden has pursued a much lighter schedule than the other candidates. He went an entire 10-day stretch recently without a public appearance, and those he makes are carefully choreographed. He largely has avoided the media or challenging interview settings.

It may be a smart strategy to a point, but the Rose Garden can become a Game of Thorns if the sense grows that the aging candidate is being protected from himself. The campaign is a proving ground to show he is up to the demands of the job.

Like Trump said -- "mentally weak." "Totally weak mentally." "To be perfectly honest, he was half-a-retard when he was 40 and he's full retard now. And you never go full retard."

I'd love to hear Trump call Biden "half-a-retard."

No, not really. Don't do that, Trump. I mean, I'd love to hear it in an alternate reality.

Maybe during your second Inaugural. But not before.

Exit Question: What will cost Joe Biden more, that Robert Gates wrote in his book that Joe Biden had gotten every single foreign policy question of the past 40 years wrong, or that he wagged his finger in front of a person of neutral gender?
