Do you believe this is really Gibberin’ Joe Biden on that bicycle? I don’t. Behind the mask and shades, it could be anybody.
For one thing, you really don’t need a face mask while riding your bike outdoors. For another, we know that a lot of our leading politicians have body doubles. And for another, we aren’t flaming idiots.
The scuttlebutt is that Gibberin’ Joe is coming apart at the seams, both mentally and physically. His actual appearances do much to reinforce this belief. And then, out of the blue, he’s scooting along on a bike like its Breaking Away? He goes from at death’s door to Mr. Fitness in the blink of an eye?
I mean, OK, you could try to do it, and good luck to you. Most adults eventually find out how easy it is to get out of shape and how hard it is to get back in. They could’ve shown Biden taking a little walk about the block: that would have been at least borderline believable. But no–they’ve got to go straight to the bike-a-thon.
That people like this can even aspire to be president is a shame to us.
