Joe Biden, who was hiding, came out of hiding Wednesday night to give an interview in person with Jimmy Kimmel — a guaranteed softball interview. Kimmel is the former host of The Man Show, a misogynistic Comedy Central program.
Biden’s senility and attempted assassination against Justice Kavanaugh did not come up. It was sometimes difficult to see this elderly man trying to form coherent thoughts.
Kimmel was able to see the trainwreck unfolding in front of him and did his best to keep Biden company throughout the interview.
Biden began to babble nonsense in one segment that was particularly disturbing. Kimmel intervened and cut the commercial.
Biden stated that there were many major accomplishments. “But we haven’t been able to communicate it in another way. That’s what we haven’t done.”
Kimmel agreed as Biden continued to talk.
“Look at how the media has changed. “Look at how the press has changed,” Biden stated before he began making up words. “I know what you mean, but it is something that you don’t understand. It’s not enough to understand it. You also overunderstand. Here’s the thing. It’s difficult to find a… well, with some notable exceptions, a good reporter, because they need to get clicks on… the… nightly news. Instead of asking the question, however, it just gets… sensationalized… in different ways… but I believe we can get past this. It’s up to us to overcome it. One of the things is to “Look–”
Kimmel interrupted. Kimmel clearly saw that Biden was having trouble understanding the situation and didn’t have a coherent plan. “And then we’ll discuss a bit more.”
Biden’s incoherent ramblings aside, it is pathetic that Biden’s handlers still tell him to continue with the old excuse of communication or messaging problem. They are able to spoon-feed the public White House talk points through the media. The problem isn’t that the public doesn’t understand the White House talking points; rather, they don’t buy the lies. His poor poll numbers reflect his failure to withdraw from Afghanistan, and his incompetence in dealing with the nation’s most important issues, such as the border crisis, COVID-19 supply chain crisis, gas prices, and inflation. This is not a communication issue.
