Okay, okay, if it were anybody other than Uncle Gropey it would be sad, and I’d feel at least some pity for the poor old coot. But in light of how long Bribe’em been a corrupt, despicable, third-rate con artist, it’s howlingly funny. And he richly deserves every last bit of scorn and contempt that can be heaped upon his rapidly-emptying head.
In a remote interview earlier today on MSNBC, Democratic presidential nominee-apparent Joe Biden had a sad anecdote to tell about the impact of the Wuhan-virus pandemic on one American dad.
I’m pretty sure, anyway.
In case you don’t have all day to make sense of Biden’s story, I made the effort to transcribe it for you. It was a time-consuming process, but I’ve done my best to make it error-free. Still, any mistakes in the transcription are my own. Lapses of logic, coherence, cogency, grammar, and the like all belong to Biden.
One last thing before you read on. Biden was making odd slurping noises during his appearance, and while I can’t explain them, I did include them in the transcript for the sake of completeness.
Here you go:
I sat with a guy on, on a telephone and he’s telling me, he said, “I don’t always,” he said, “Look, I, I, I, I, I, I’m, I, I worked at the hospital.” And he said, “Then I, I got, I got myself a position where I got the virus so they quarantined me and, and they put me in the hospital, and I made it out and so I’m out [slurp]. But they don’t want me with my family. I’m on the third floor. I spent 15 minutes on the phone with them saying,’ he said, ‘I have a three-year-old and a four-year-old. They come to the door outside and they just knock on the door and say ‘Daddy, Daddy, can I see you Daddy, can I see you Daddy?’’”
So we spent time going through it [slurp], I used to do with my kids when they were little and I couldn’t see them and we’d play games. I said, “Knock, make up a game, knock, knock on the door and say this is, you know [slurp].” [incomprehensible] This is practical things, the guy’s scared to death. And he’s worried about his children, he’s worried about his wie [sic]. I mean, these are practical things. And the president talks about this like, “OK, it’s gonna be OK. We’re gonna open… tomorrow. We’re gonna do this.”
I mean, it just, I must tell you, it drives me crazy. I don’t know what he doesn’t understand.
It’s a real head-scratcher what Biden doesn’t know, does know, or is trying to say — if anything.
When most politicians speak, audiences have to suspend their disbelief. When it’s Biden speaking they have to suspend their incomprehension.
And their intellect, facility for logic, and integrity, too.
