Don't ever say anything to me about fumbling, bumbling, frail President Biden.

Sure he is using teleprompter. Most people speaking to the nation do. However, he is using it masterfully. He doesn't sound bumbling to me. A few slips of the tongue that anyone would make. How many of you remember that this man was a child stutterer. I defy anyone master speaking from that speech impediment, be over 75, and keep your place using a teleprompter. He sounds better to me than the GOP revered Judge who appeared before the J6 Committee.

Including Trump. Time to stop playing into this bullshit that using one shows that one is somehow incompetent. The ones pushing this garbage only make a big deal about it when a Democrat is using one. They pulled this same shit on President Obama, as well. The response should not to be to try to explain it away. It should be, "Who. Fucking. Cares?" Period. The end.

He clearly is NOT. The man runs, is fit, has more energy than Dump on his best day, is sharp as a tack… He has always had problems with getting words out at times. So what?

Stutter on occasions so what. I like that he excuses to the people listening it makes him real. Unlike most republican politicians.

It feels good to have an enemy when you have to justify your attachment to your tribe. Any and everything becomes a stone to throw at the “others.” It’s what keeps that adrenaline flowing, and it’s risk free.

I hate to say it, and I’m terrible at it too, but if we completely quit responding to that kind of thing they’d just have one another to talk to, and while it wouldn’t stop it, it wouldn’t reinforce it so much either.
