The Democrat party may have chosen former VP Joe Biden as their champion to run against Trump, but it’s clear their confidence in him is pretty low. Judging by Joe Rogan’s rundown of Biden, the forecast isn’t looking too sunny for the Biden in a matchup with President Donald Trump.
“You have to be able to call out s**t that’s wrong on your side, and this is one of the problems that the Democratic Party is having right now with this Joe Biden guy,” said Rogan. “You guys gotta be able to call it out. You can’t let this slide, because everybody else see’s it and Trump is going to eat him alive. He’s going to eat that guy alive.”
“The guy can barely remember what he’s talking about while he’s talking,” Rogan added.
Rogan continued by saying of Biden’s videos “they’re all crazy.”
“Play any of them, they’re all crazy. Every video of him recently talking he’s stumbling through s**t, he forgets what he’s talking about,” said Rogan.
“He doesn’t know what he’s talking about when he’s talking,” Rogan said after playing a few clips of Biden speaking to reporters. “He doesn’t look good, either. And they got makeup on him. His skin is all pulled tight like a lizard.”

While it hasn’t been medically confirmed, many are suspecting Biden is suffering from a mental illness of some kind, namely the early stages of Alzheimer’s. Even his fellow Democrats have voiced their concern over Biden’s health.

Biden’s campaign has been plagued by his inability to come off as someone who has it together and it shows in the numbers Biden is attracting during his virtual happy hours. The last one he held only attracted 2,800 viewers, which is absolutely paltry for a Democratic nominee, even an unofficial one.
As my colleague Elizabeth Vaughn recently noted of Biden’s recent “shadow briefing,” the video was meant to show what a President Biden would do to handle the Wuhan Coronavirus crisis, yet Biden hardly seems to be able to keep his thoughts straight:
Those who watched it said the presumptive Democratic nominee “devolved into gibberish” at times. In the clip below, Biden tells viewers, “I’m going to, Barack, significantly increase the number of pell grants that are out there. A pell grant is a family basically less than $50,000 you’re able to get at the time, it was less than six but it raised it to $6000.”
Rogan’s concerns are valid, and it’s likely that many Democrats share them.
