New Albany, MS – I know Joe Biden. Joe Biden is a friend of mine. Joe Biden’s mental acuity is not in question. It is cruel unfounded politically motivated nonsense to say otherwise.
Nothing could be further from truth than the pseudo rambling diagnosis of “sundowners” dementia offered by Elizabeth Shiverdecker of former Vice President Joe Biden!
Please allow me to set the record straight .
As a child and as a young adult Joe Biden suffered from a common disability. He stuttered. Because of this disability he was relentlessly bullied by his insensitive class mates. He courageously persevered and overcame this disability by reading Irish poetry in front of a mirror in the privacy of his own bedroom. Ultimately he prevailed over this disability and became one of the most passionate orators on America’s political stage. Nonetheless, at times the plague of this disability does inevitable reemerge and make itself obvious for all the snarky journalist to see!
Joe Biden, throughout his career, has been prone to the kind of endearing misstatements that are not unlike the kind each of us make daily. I know I sometimes say things that are incorrect and, like the Vice President, quickly correct the innocuous mistake. I bet most readers of this column do, too!
Ms. Shiverdecker’s, and other naysayer journalist’s unprofessional comments ( they are neither trained physicians or psychologists) are, as my ole Irish friend Joe Biden would say, pure “malarkey”! And they are representative of the sort of heartless bullying that has been the hallmark of Trump and a Trumpism!
Once the Trump – Biden debates begin we will plainly see who has, not only the mental acuity, but the moral character to lead America!
