What's this obsession among Repubs about Biden being "cut off"

By somebody with a button in the White House? I had not seen this before. All of a sudden this senator is absolutely obsessed with it during Blinkin testimony. Is this new or is this part of the obsession that Biden isn't smart enough to talk. He spent a good deal of his beginning statement and some of his questioning addressing how the other day Biden was cut off in mid sentence by a button. Is this already a meme or is he trying to start something. To me, he's the one coming off sounding stupid. Anybody who thinks Biden has handlers who can control Biden has not paying attention or is trying to make us forget the years when he was VP and how they mercilessly criticized his "gaffes." That's just the way Joe talks.

3. One of the main RW talking points since before the election has been that Biden isn't

mentally competent, that he's always controlled and managed by others. This is an article of faith among many RWers, and they focus on any tiny gaffe or incident that they think supports that view.

5. I always point out that that attack line didn't work

Crooked Donnie got savagely shlonged, so, a majority of Americans didn't buy "dementia" then, and they won't going forward. The President is out there every day doing his job, taking press questions, looking good.

6. Ron Johnson in this case, obsession about "making the tough decisions"

that discriminate in favor of making money - it doesn't include spending on heartfelt social needs among POC, women, the aged, the disabled, the sacrificing collaterals in the military defending a document that essentially says, "for all." No one of GOP, perhaps some in our party, gets to federal gov leadership without selling off a lot of their compassion, empathy...they owe a big money or policy debt to "someone, some corporate "personhood," some corruption of the system without which they'd never do what they do. It's "I got mine; somebody stopped or will stop my "money tree." In this case, Joe is seen as one who wants to end Ron's?

A button? This man ended his stuttering with deliberate practice; I'm supposing when Joe's cortisol flows, that habit of deliberateness could "break through" that discipline, and perhaps sometimes he must be careful for "national security" reasons. To me, that deliberateness of language use is his way, a necessary way, of "upholding the Constitution" and the duties of his Executive Office. I stand by his decision, quickly and responsibly as possible. It worked; casualities and errors of haste - sure - always present in war.

7. I was so confused watching his obsessing on this subject.

Joe Biden rambles sometimes when he goes off on a bit of a tangent when ad libbing (and of course still stutters a little occasionally), but he has never embarrassed me or embarrassed our country. As someone who had a mild stutter as a child and when my statement doesn't come out as quickly as I want it to, I'm proud of having an acknowledge former stutterer in the White House. But senile, no. He has the heavy weight of the world on him.

8. Wait. I just thought. Wouldn't we still see Joe's lips moving if he was cut off?

If somebody pushed a button to shut him down, if his microphone shunt down, we could still hear his regular speaking voice or at least see his lips moving. OMG! Our president is a robot who can be turned off and on. You mean the Secret Service never noticed this? Maybe somebody in the Secret Service is the one with the button but the WH staff doesn't know. The possibilities are endless. Does Jill know? Gee, he does a pretty good job riding a bike for a robot.

Rinse and repeat, rinse and repeat!
