On Thursday, former Vice President appeared at a CNN town hall in Las Vegas, Nevada. The 77-year-old presidential candidate said that he will not run for a second term if his "mental acuity" declines.
Ummmm, you're a little late there, bud! There's not many brain cells left!
A transcript is as follows:
TOWN HALL QUESTIONER: Some expressed concern about the ages of you and Senator Sanders. Would you, if you are the nominee, go as far as to commit to only one term if it meant uniting our party?
JOE BIDEN: No, I wouldn’t do that. But, I’ll tell you what: you’re going to be able to make a judgment. And by the way, the two youngest men on the stage now or me and Buttigieg. That’s the way it goes, you know what I mean? But look, It’s totally legitimate for you all to ask about my age, or anybody else’s age up there and our health. That’s why I give all my medical records. Everything, okay? The whole deal, so you know who I am.
Anybody who starts off saying “I’m only going to serve one term” is already behind the 8-ball because then you’re a one-term president, and no one worries what the hell is gonna happen after that. All the woman on that stage, including the woman you’re leaning toward, is over 70 years of age, and I’m in pretty good health… If anything changed in my health, making it incapable of me to fully exert all the energy and mental acuity that was needed to be done, then I give you my word: I would not run again.
When asked if he would only run for one term due to his age, Joe Biden, 77, plainly said no. "It's totally legitimate for ya to ask about my age, or anybody else's age up there and our health. That's why I give all my medical records." #CNNTownHall https://t.co/RDjh8Bhu2w pic.twitter.com/lw4wyDMhUP

This was to be expected. After all, he promised to drain the swamp and build a wall, plus he's a man who is very confident and knows how to get things done. In other words, he was going to shake it up quite a bit and this made liberals nervous. Continue reading…

They say that if we don't put an immediate stop to practically everything that we're doing ranging from driving cars, to flying on planes, to letting cows fart in the pasture, then the carbon emissions are going to be so high that it will lead to the melting of the polar ice caps. Continue reading…
