Joe Biden is pretty much now the Democratic nominee barring any funny business at the convention, with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) finally dropping out of the race.

But he’s still struggling to find some relevance. He did two interviews in the last day or so, one on NBC and one on CNN.

Here’s the CNN one:

As my colleague Bonchie reported earlier, in the CNN interview, Biden said the pandemic was an opportunity to “do so many things,” to “change some of the structural things that are wrong.” What does he mean? “The band aid’s been ripped off here,” Biden continued. “Everybody now understands that we have a voting system that is not, that is not, transparent and clear and available for everyone.” Wait, what? What does the virus have to do with the voting system? “Everyone understands that the environment has impacted on this coronavirus, there’s mounting evidence to that.” There is? How? What the heck is he even talking about? What does the environment have to do with the virus? Is this some nutty justification for the Green New Deal?

But it also devolved even further into incoherence.

Now, check out this astonishing twist of logic within a matter of seconds. According to Biden, there’s absolutely no way you should postpone the November election, saying we had an election in the middle of the 1918 pandemic. Then on a dime, he says how wrong it was to hold the primary in Wisconsin and blames Republicans.

Because what they really want is to have a national election with all mail-in votes. If you thought hanging chads was bad with Bush-Gore, can you imagine the madness and the fraud in that?

Biden also hit up NBC where he made more false claims, still didn’t seem to understand what the Trump campaign was doing and had to look at notes to be able to answer a question.

Biden argued that Trump needs to invoke the Defense Production Act (which Trump invoked on March 18) and appoint a supply commander (which Trump already has). Biden also falsely claimed that masks weren’t being produced, when in fact, the administration has been acquiring masks and shipping them out to states. Not to mention that states and hospitals already are supposed to be responsible for their own supplies.

But it’s terribly ironic that he should talk about masks since it’s his administration that failed to replace the masks that were used from the national stockpile after the H1N1 pandemic

He was asked why he was the best choice, post virus, and he cited that H1N1 experience and the “whole pandemic in Africa” experience.

But that didn’t go so well.

From CDC:

From April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010, CDC estimated there were 60.8 million cases (range: 43.3-89.3 million), 274,304 hospitalizations (range: 195,086-402,719), and 12,469 deaths (range: 8868-18,306) in the United States due to the (H1N1)pdm09 virus.

Finally, the NBC interviewer asks him about “stay-at-home” orders and he gives another incoherent answer, even having to check his notes at least twice during his response.

Why is he checking notes to answer? Did he get a prepared question? Or is he just so far gone he’s having to check notes to help him with responses?

This is your de facto nominee, Democrats. God help us all…
