Biden and Harris Both Confused About Who Is Running for President and Vice President

Before getting to that: Rush Limbaugh talked about Sundown Joe's sundown syndrome for 20 minutes yesterday.

I've never been prouder.

RUSH: This is Wes in Philadelphia. Great to have you. Welcome.

CALLER: Rush, mega prayers from Philadelphia, PA.

RUSH: Thank you, sir.

CALLER: If you could indulge me one moment to comment on Biden, Plugs, in a debate because I, too, do not believe the debates will happen. I think, as someone who’s seen dementia, he suffers sundown syndrome. So when the lights go down in the evening, his cognitive --

RUSH: Well, now, you’re jumping ahead, but you're exactly right about this. There is something about people who suffer dementia and the 8 o'clock p.m. hour and later. There’s something about it, their functionality decreases. So that was gonna be one of the two support stories I was going to use.

And you’ve come in here as a caller, attempted to horn in on what I was gonna make a point about by going off topic about what you promised -- you wanted to talk about the absurdity of masks on the sideline. Now you come and steal my thunder on Plugs not doing a debate. But I'll forgive you because I'm a nice guy and actually you're right, so I can't be critical of you.


Speaking of -- and I was just joking with the caller accusing him of stealing from me, folks. He knew it. He understood it. That's why he was laughing along with me. But he is right. He is right that people who suffer from dementia, there is something about the 8 o'clock hour, 8 p.m. and later, that makes the circumstance deteriorate and worsen. And when you learn that, when you are first exposed to it and you read about it, you yourself would conclude, there can't possibly be any debates. There just can't.

Now, I have that story, and I have another one here. And this is in the Spectator.org. It's by Rob Crisell. The headline: "Why Biden Will Withdraw From the Debates -- It's the only way for Joe’s handlers to save him from himself." It's the American Spectator. Now, the aspect of this I was referring to is, in addition to the points made in this story, it’s called sundowning. People with dementia often, not always, but often get more confused and nervous in the late afternoon and the evening. If you have had someone in your family suffer from dementia or Parkinson's -- not Parkinson's, but Alzheimer's to one degree or another, you probably have seen this.

You've seen it with family members who had dementia. That as the day went on, as the afternoon grew later and then shifted into evening, you could see an obvious deterioration in the mental acuity of the family member who had dementia or Alzheimer's. I know people who have seen it with their own parents and grandparents.

You'd have an average day where you would think, "Hey, grandma doing great today. Grandma’s really cool today." And families are filled with hope when those days happen, and then on those same days, when you get to sundown and later, the deterioration picks up, and you can see it, and you get depressed because earlier in the day you thought, "Okay. This is gonna be a good day."

I have heard Jill Biden say that her husband Joe was up early every morning on the phone with all sorts of people. And she says this as a way, "Hey, don’t believe this stuff about Joe having mental problems. He's up, he's up every morning early, he’s talking to countless people on the phone." That’s not the time to look. You need to look at Joe Biden at sunset.

In fact, on Saturday Joe Biden sent word to the media that he was shutting the campaign down at 9 a.m. 9 a.m. Saturday, the word went out that the campaign was shutting down. Here it is. A reporter for NBC-MSNBC got word from the Biden camp-- the reporter’s name is Jake Sherman -- that they put a lid on the campaign Saturday at 9 a.m. So a Saturday, weeks away from the election, Biden shut down the campaign at 9 a.m. on Saturday.

So that prompted a CBS White House reporter named Kathryn Watson to tweet that she couldn't understand why Joe was not out proving that he can outwork Trump. Kathryn Watson's tweet: "Not sure why Biden isn’t doing more to show that he can outwork Trump." That's after she saw the Jake Sherman tweet claiming a lid has been called in Wilmington, meaning Biden's not expected to have any public events today. Campaign is shut down. She tweets that she doesn’t understand why Biden's not out doing more to show that he can outwork Trump.

She doesn't have a clue, folks, just to show you the Drive-By Media may not even understand the depths of the problem. You shut the campaign down at 9 a.m. on a Saturday, well, let's see the campaign at 5 p.m. Let's see the campaign at 7 p.m. This is when debates are gonna happen. And I'm just telling you. Sundowning can be controlled -- you know, you minimize symptoms somehow, but being on a stage with bright lights, clapping, pressure, that's not among the ways that you minimize the symptoms.

I've been looking at this. I can’t recall when Biden is out in public at night, save for the Democrat debates which were way earlier this year. You gotta go back to January, February, March, and even then there weren't very many. But of recent campaign appearances, I can't recall, I can't remember Biden out in public at night. And certainly not after a full day of negotiating world peace and having a helicopter ride to the hangar, two-hour speech and banter with 15,000 people and then going out and doing a debate. I haven't seen Biden engage in that kind of rigorous schedule.

Is Joe Biden Sundowning?

You be the judge:

Now, on to the confusion:

First, Biden thinks it's 2012, and that he's campaigning for Obama's second term.

Next, Kamala Harris is confused and thinks she's running to be president.

But maybe she's not confused. Maybe she sees Biden's rapid deterioration up close and knows for a fact that the position she's really running for is president.

Bonus confusion:
