Joe and Jill Biden visited Houston yesterday as Texas recovers from last week’s severe winter storms.
The storm gripped Texas for nearly a week and left an estimated 4 million utility customers without electricity for hours, and sometimes days, at a time. And as a byproduct of the power loss, about half the state’s residents, upward of 15 million, either were without water or had to boil water before drinking it.
Biden was a little late with his tour of the frozen state as Texas weather is much better and Texans are heading for a recovery.
But what was the biggest “highlight” of the Texas visit was once again Biden’s blunders
If you do a live Twitter search for the word “stutter,” you will as of this writing see that word being tweeted multiple times per minute on the social media platform as Democrats scramble to defend Biden from people who are accurately highlighting the indisputable fact that the former vice president is showing signs of cognitive decline. In my interactions with Biden supporters over the last 24 hours I’ve had this irrelevant word suddenly start getting thrown at me, because narrative managers in the mainstream media and the Biden team have been aggressively promoting the talking point that Biden’s increasingly frequent neurological misfirings are actually the result of a longstanding speech impediment.
Yesterday Joe was confused and lost and even admitted it during his brief speech.
Joe Biden: Lizzie Panilli, uh, excuse me, Pannill, and uh, what am I doing here? I’m going to lose track here. And, uh… Mayor Turner… My family spent a lot of time here in Houston by the way. And, uh, hey John Eddy, how are you buddy I didn’t see you there?… I could be known for as president. I would be the end, the president who end during his era ended cancer as we know it. (cough)
The full speech below:
While it is true that Biden has periodically exhibited signs of a stutter, the inability to hold on to his own train of thought, forgetting where he is and who he’s with, grossly incorrect use of language, and inappropriate behavior are not symptoms of a stutter.
Here is the Mayo Clinic’s list of symptoms for a stutter, also known as a stammer:
Difficulty starting a word, phrase or sentence
Prolonging a word or sounds within a word
Repetition of a sound, syllable or word
Brief silence for certain syllables or words, or pauses within a word (broken word)
Addition of extra words such as “um” if difficulty moving to the next word is anticipated
Excess tension, tightness, or movement of the face or upper body to produce a word
Anxiety about talking
Limited ability to effectively communicate
Here is the Mayo Clinic’s list of dementia symptoms:
Memory loss, which is usually noticed by a spouse or someone else
Difficulty communicating or finding words
Difficulty with visual and spatial abilities, such as getting lost while driving
Difficulty reasoning or problem-solving
Difficulty handling complex tasks
Difficulty with planning and organizing
Difficulty with coordination and motor functions
Confusion and disorientation
Clearly, the symptoms of the speech impediment are very distinct from the symptoms of a degenerative neurological disorder.
What do you think, what is causing Joe’s “blunders”?
