Biden hits Trump on cognitive awareness: Either he reads and forgets or he doesn’t think he needs to know it

Published

on

Vice President Joe Biden continued his attacks on President Donald Trump during a speech Tuesday.

After his remarks, Biden took questions from the press in attendance, and the first question out of the gate was about the recent news that President Donald Trump either ignored or forgot about a February briefing where he was told that Russians were offering a bounty on the heads of American soldiers in Afghanistan.

Trump has tried to attack Biden, saying that he is too senile to be president. Biden turned it around, saying that it was Trump that seemed to be lacking.

“This president talks about cognitive capability. He doesn’t seem to be cognitively aware of what’s going on,” said Biden. “He either reads and/or gets briefed on important issues and he forgets it, or he doesn’t think it’s necessary that he needs to know it. But the fact is that at a minimum, at a minimum, the discrepancy — allegedly — within the intelligence community as reported, some thought it was more certain and others thought it was less certain. That should be resolved. The president should have, on day one, said, ‘I want you to come before me in the Situation Room and lay out the differences and discretion.’ Who is saying what? Let’s get to the bottom of this.”

Biden went on to say that Trump should also have immediately contacted the Joint Chiefs of Staff and gotten them in the room to troubleshoot the response.

“What are we doing to prepare to deal with this, if this is happening?” Biden asked. “How are we doing this? what are we doing? Thirdly, he should, at a minimum, have picked up the phone and said, ‘Vladimir, old buddy, if any of this is true, and it seems to me that you’ve got a big problem. A big problem.’ And make it clear.”

He went on to recall a conversation with his wife Dr. Jill Biden about their son Beau who served in Iraq as part of the 261st Signal Brigade. He said that families deserve answers — particularly if their children were killed in Afghanistan.

‘Perhaps the most un-American speech ever delivered by an American president’: Ambassador McFaul

Published

on

President Donald Trump's address at Mount Rushmore was blasted as "un-American" by former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul.

McFaul retweeted a clip of the leader of the free world failing to pronounce the word, "totalitarianism."

"Trump has no idea what words like fascism and totalitarianism mean," McFaul, now a professor at Stanford, declared.

"To those who wrote this speech and those senior [White House] officials who approved this speech, shame on you. Perhaps the most un-American speech ever delivered by an American president and on the July 4th weekend no less," he explained.

Published

Veteran Nevada political reporter Jon Ralston, the editor of The Nevada Independent, tweeted out a screenshot of the email sent by Michael McDonald, the chairman of the state GOP.

Ralston described the email as a "microcosm of NV GOP's incompetence (and illiteracy)" and mocked the party by saying "English is a difficult language to master."

Here is Ralston's thread on the Fourth of July message:

Trump has gone from ‘merely losing’ to ‘flailing’ in one month as he faces a November election wipeout: report

Published

on

On Saturday, Politico reported that President Donald Trump's campaign is in freefall — and that, despite there still being hypothetical ways former Vice President Joe Biden could snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, the president and his party are in dire straits.

"As recently as one month ago, Donald Trump was merely losing," reported David Siders. "Now he is flailing, trudging into the Independence Day weekend at the nadir of his presidency, trailing by double digits in recent polls and in danger of dragging the Republican Senate down with him."
