“YOU CAN’T FEEL SORRY FOR HIM AND VOTE FOR HIM”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Aug. 17, 2020) — In a wide-ranging live-by-phone interview during Monday’s “Fox & Friends” 8:00 a.m. hour, President Donald Trump told co-hosts Ainsley Earhardt, Brian Kilmeade, and Steve Doocy that his apparent Democratic rival in the 2020 presidential election, Joe Biden, “is shot.”
Trump was opining on Biden’s intellectual capacity, which some observers say is impaired due to “cognitive decline” or what is sometimes known as Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
Biden often exhibits an apparent inability to complete sentences, misidentifies where he is, misstates facts and has famously run his campaign, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, from what is said to be his “basement” office.
After making the assertion about Biden, Trump added, “You can’t feel sorry for him and vote for him,” contending that the presidency of the United States requires an individual with superior mental acuity.
Other topics discussed were New York City Bill de Blasio, to whom Trump said he wrote a letter regarding rising crime and lack of support for the police; the Middle East; energy production; the economy; the Democratic National Committee convention, which begins this evening; Trump’s “debate prep”; the stock market, which Trump expects to rise this week; and the passing of his brother Robert on Saturday.
As for preparing for three scheduled debates with Biden, Trump said, “I’m working very hard…we need law and order; you don’t have to prep for that…”
After Kilmeade questioned Trump for more specifics on debate preparation, Trump said, “Biden is shot, I’m telling you…there’s something going on there.”
He went on to opine that Bernie Sanders “must like losing” since he was defeated in the 2016 primaries under questionable circumstances by the Clinton campaign and again this year by the Biden campaign.
Trump then announced “breaking news.” “We want to debate,” he said, “but one of the debates should be early. We can see that Joe doesn’t want to debate, but here’s the story: if Joe makes it through the debate…the news…will say it’s the single greatest debate performance in history. You know that and so do I.”
