An article from The Atlantic from February - "What Joe Biden Can't Bring Himself to Say"

Last edited Thu Jun 25, 2020, 02:05 PM - Edit history (1)

Edited: apologies for the hasty title. I was out running errands and wanted to put it up.

His verbal stumbles have voters worried about his mental fitness. Maybe they’d be more understanding if they knew he’s still fighting a stutter.

13. Yawn! The "gaffe meme" is overblown. Guess you didn't see the Biden/Sanders...

debate where Joe blew Sanders out of the water with an articulate and impassioned presentation. It's old news that really doesn't amount to much, especially considering the perpetually lying piece of human trash Joe is going up against.
