Opinion: Reagan, McCain, Trump… But Not Biden? | Shlomo Rudman

There has been a lot of talk throughout this year’s presidential race regarding the mental fitness of the both Joe Biden and Donald Trump. 

Sort of.

The only people actually talking about the apparent cognitive decline of Democratic nominee Joe Biden are Republicans. But everyone is involved in the conversation over whether Donald Trump is mentally fit enough to be president.

Listen to or watch any mainstream news program and you will hear experts and pundits going on and on about Trump’s inability to focus on issues that matter, his brash nature, and his in being president.

But, for some reason, they never mention Biden in the conversation. If you compare clips of Joe Biden from several years to today, you don’t need a medical degree to realize that he is experiencing significant cognitive decline. While he always made gaffes, he now literally forgets what he’s saying mid-sentence.

But this is taboo for the mainstream media. And the double standard has been around for years. The mainstream media and Democrats questioned the mental fitness of Ronald Reagan and John McCain, and continue to question that of President Trump. Notice a pattern? Those questions are only applicable to Republicans, apparently.

But their dear candidate Joe Biden, who will save us from the “horrors” of President Trump gets a pass, even as they question Trump himself.

Not only that, when Trump points out what the media won’t – that Biden is losing his mind – he is attacked by everyone in the media for daring to question Biden’s mental fitness. Again, even as the media question Trump himself over his mental fitness.

And therein lies the issue with the mainstream media as a whole. They are so convinced of their self-righteousness that they completely fail to see their own hypocrisy.

But as for the rest of us, it’s always worth keeping in mind that what you read in the media is slanted left. And to figure out what’s happening we actually need to use our own brains.

  1. The mainstream media aren’t a free press, they are propagandists for the democrat party. They lie and obfuscate to attack republicans and protect democrats.

  2. That just makes him worse.
    senile and feeble-minded was being dan lekaf zechus.

    Regardless – totally unfit to be president.
    Will continue the rapid decline that began with the democrat pandemic overreach, followed by the lawlessness that has been highly encouraged by the highest levels of the liberals.

    Where is this country heading? Extend government powers, foment unrest and fear and divisiveness among the population, liberal media pushing liberal agendas to further destroy what is left of this country

    Just as an aside, the ones I see highlighting the difference between races are the liberals! My kids just think other races are people with different color skin etc.

    • Have you been watching the national news every night? Some of these commentators are seem to speak against what their own eyes see.

      It is one think if you do not want a television in your house and a second thing if you did not learn American history a full year in high school, but don’t think you can intelligently participate in discourse without a foundation and awareness.

  3. Both Trump and Biden’s mental health have been covered extensively in both mass media and mass fake news media. Choose for yourselves which is which.

    The assumption of this article is incorrect.

    The only difference is whether you use it as a daily attack on Biden (Trump leaning media) or realize it’s a hoax equal to birtherism and ignore it from now on.(Left leaning media.)

    Be honest Shlomo, nothing will ever convince you that Biden is not mentally deteriorating.

  4. I’ve seen Trump through the media since the 1980’s. Whether he was ever mentally stable is up for debate, but there has not been a significant decline in his mental acuity. Biden is slipping, many dems don’t even have faith in Kamala’s capabilities, and c”v something happens to her, Pelosi will be running the show.

    They should enact maximum ages for serving (president or legislature) since they already have a minimum.

    • They should also enact minimum knowledge of history, which would be one year of American history in high school, and also one year of American government, like everyone else in America gets, not some substitute for this.

      At any rate, you will never get three quarters of the state to agree to such a constitutional amendment.
