President Joe Biden may have just ended Mitch McConnell's career.
By trying to save it...
Biden recently rushed to the defense of McConnell, telling America not to worry about old Mitch. The president assured the nation that Mitch will be "back to his old self" in no time.
That's EXACTLY what we're worried about.
McConnell isn't a conservative. From Biden's own mouth, McConnell is a friend of his.
That's why Biden was so quick to assert that McConnell was going to be fine, because Biden NEEDS the Kentucky lawmaker to do some of the liberals' dirty work.
Either that, or Biden realizes that he can't criticize anybody's age without having the spotlight turned on himself.
Even if Joe does think that McConnell needs to go, what was he supposed to say?
Biden might be dumb, but he's not so dumb that he's going to go around opening himself up for attacks by saying that anyone who is failing mentally needs to be booted out of office.
The president himself is clearly failing. He looks noticeably different than he did during his time as a senator or as our vice president, and he conducts himself very differently as well.
Joe appears confused, slow, and speaks with a completely different cadence than he used to.
Even a single word attacking McConnell or Diane Feinstein for being too old would be a suicide mission for Biden.
Plus, Joe needs McConnell in the Senate anyway.
"I spoke to Mitch. He’s a friend and I spoke to him today," Biden said. "And, you know, he was his old self on the telephone."
Biden went on to provide anecdotal evidence that he thought Mitch would recover, saying:
And one of the leading women on my staff, her husband’s a neurosurgeon as well,” he noted. “It’s not at all unusual to have the response that sometimes happens to Mitch when you’ve had a severe concussion — it’s part of his recovery. And so I’m confident he’s going to be back to his old self.
