Joe Biden Isn’t Running For President, His Teleprompter Is

Joe Biden has regressed to the point of reading cues out loud, giving hand signals to scroll up the text, and botching words as they appear on the screen.

Samantha Strayer
Election 2020 has seen its fair share of the comical and bizarre, of the heartening and debased. There is something to be learned from it all, I believe, even from a simple machine designed to facilitate clear communication to the general public. Once the prized, not-so-secret weapon of President Obama’s supposed rhetorical prowess, the teleprompter has become the conspicuous centerpiece of Joe Biden’s third attempt to capture America’s highest office.

Saving Obama from his tendency to uhhhh and errrr his way through the English language, the teleprompter made him appear oh-so-presidential and caused his swooning supporters’ chests to swell with pride, and gormless Republicans to quake in their loafers. The teleprompter was so essential to preserving Obama’s carefully crafted image that someone started a parody blog with the catchy tagline, “There is no POTUS without TOTUS.” No matter what the teleprompter says or what its handler does, Biden is bound to gaffe it up.

Stepping on a rake has been part of Biden’s shtick for ages, and we’ve been gaslighted to think this is the essence of charm. That’s just Joe, folks! But in 2014, then-Vice President Biden’s blunders caught up with him again, this time embarrassing the Obama administration.

So The New Yorker published an article about his verbal doozies that riled allies at home and interests abroad. That was not that long ago, but six years can have a profound, compounding effect on the brain. It’s now a crapshoot what’s going to come out of Biden’s mouth on or off the prompter.

Biden has regressed to the point of reading cues out loud, giving hand signals—that we can see—to scroll up the text, and botching words as they appear on the screen. At one point during a remote interview with “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” Biden held up a picture of himself with sons Hunter and Beau, and the frame’s reflection revealed a teleprompter—a big fat warning sign that he needed help for such a non-serious, televised appearance.

It’s become clear that Biden is also using a teleprompter during interviews with “journalists,” press conferences, and townhall events. Rather than merely a normal and expected part of a campaign for making speeches and policy addresses, the teleprompter has become a crutch for the befuddled Biden. It of course says something very serious about the state of his mental affairs that he’s better on prompter than off.

Off, he meanders aimlessly about chicken manure and “you know, the thing” (equal rights in the Declaration of Independence). He tells oddball stories about Corn Pop and hairy legs and gets aggressive with voters who challenge his record and policy positions. These are but a few examples, and not the actions of a well-adjusted human being.

Last Wednesday, the Trump campaign released a scathing one-minute ad entitled, “Joe’s Teleprompter,” showing Biden struggling to communicate, awkwardly filling the gaps with exhausted-sounding sighs and noises. The ad also shows Biden’s national press secretary T.J. Ducklo avoiding Fox News anchor Bret Baier’s pointed question whether Biden uses a teleprompter in interviews and Q&As.



At campaign rallies last week in Minnesota and North Carolina, President Trump hit hard the point that Biden clearly lacks the mental capacity and energy to defend America against her greatest threat: China. Putting aside his well-aimed and comically timed jibes, Trump zeroed in on his ultimate point. To the huge crowd in Bemidji, Minn., he asked:

Would you rather go teleprompter or freelance? Isn’t it nice when you have the option because you have this [pointing to his head] and you have the option to go either? See, Joe doesn’t have the option. He doesn’t have the option. But if Biden wins, China wins, and it’s very simple.

Biden has skirted the topic of China or lauded the country outright, soft-pedaling the communist regime’s shenanigans, including its complicity in the coronavirus, intellectual property theft, and dubious trade practices. Biden’s financial interests in China have dovetailed conveniently with his political ambitions, leveraging the latter to secure the former. Great research by Peter Schweizer and others highlights the problematic Biden-China relationship, and the Trump campaign rightly targets this glaring weakness, and how Biden’s antics in front of the teleprompter exacerbate the dynamic.

Something clearly is wrong with Biden’s mental acuity, and the magical powers of a teleprompter can only do so much. As we veer wildly toward Nov. 3, Biden sounds increasingly tired—that is, when we see him at all. “Calling a lid” (taking a break from campaigning) first thing Saturday morning—less than two months before Election Day and less than 24 hours after Supreme Court Justice Ginsberg passed away—skywrites to the world a total lack of interest and vigor to campaign, let alone govern.

The cynical conduct of the Democratic Party, not to mention Biden’s own family, who let it get this far tells us how low they are willing to go, and what it will cost the rest of us if we let them win. As if we needed further proof in a year as lit as 2020.

What an absolute piece of shit! It’s one thing to steal a mans wife - happens. But to put a pretty bow on it and tidy it up for a fancy story for public consumption and to make you look like the hopeless romantic is absolutely pathetic. Especially when the former husband is alive to tell the real story.

Hillary would disapprove.

Jill Biden’s First Husband Backs Trump: ‘I Was Betrayed by the Bidens,’ Claims Their Love Story a Lie

Dr. Jill Biden’s first husband spoke up this week publicly for the first time in decades, announcing he is voting for President Donald Trump instead of his ex-wife’s husband, Democrat Joe Biden.

In the interview with Inside Edition, Bill Stevenson—the owner of the Delaware nightclub the Stone Balloon and Jill Biden’s first husband—claims the story that Joe and Jill tell about how they met is a lie.

“I was betrayed by the Bidens. Joe was my friend. Jill was my wife,” Stevenson said in the interview with Inside Edition.

Joe and Jill Biden claim they were set up on a blind date in March 1975, a few years after Joe’s first wife, Neilia Biden, died in a fatal car crash that also claimed their daughter’s life. Joe and Neilia’s sons, Hunter and Beau Biden, survived the fatal car accident, which happened in December 1972 right after Joe was first elected to the United States Senate. Joe was sworn into the Senate from the hospital where his sons were recovering. Beau Biden would later become the attorney general of Delaware, but he has since passed away due to brain cancer. Hunter Biden, meanwhile, has had his share of problems over the years with drugs and relationships but also has drawn scrutiny over various financial relationships he developed with foreign powers like the Chinese Communist Party and business dealings in Ukraine.

As the story goes, as the Bidens have told it time and again in campaign rallies and books and again most recently at the Democrat National Convention, a few years after Neilia’s death he saw a picture of Jill—a model—on an advertisement in Delaware in March 1975. The next day, Joe claims his brother Frank—who has also been drawn into corruption concerns surrounding the Biden family—introduced Joe and Jill Biden since Frank knew Jill from college.

“The Bidens’ love story reads like a classic fairytale,” Inside Edition’s Steven Fabian said in the news package rolling out the Stevenson interview. “They saw a movie together on that blind date, fell in love, and never looked back. But Jill Biden’s ex-husband says there’s much more to the story, claiming Jill and Joe’s relationship actually started in 1974 when he was still married to Jill.”

Fabian asked Stevenson if the Bidens’ story of how they met is true.

“It was a blind date. Point blank, is that story true?” Fabian asked Stevenson.

“No, not even a little bit,” Stevenson replied.

Stevenson married Jill when she was 18, six months after they first met on the beach.

“Jill and I met on the beach in Ocean City, New Jersey, in August of 1969. Sure I fell in love with her because I married her six months later,” he said in the interview.

Despite the official 1975 blind date narrative, Fabian said that Stevenson claims he introduced the two of them years earlier—and they knew each other well.

“According to Bill Stevenson, both he and Jill first got to know Joe Biden when Biden was a county councilman in New Castle, Delaware. Stevenson asked for his help in obtaining a liquor license,” Fabian said in the news package.

Asked if he and Jill were friends with Joe Biden, Stevenson told Inside Edition’s Fabian that “oh yeah” and “not only that, I threw a fundraiser for him in August and raised between $2,500 and $3,000. We got married in ’70. I introduced Joe to Jill in ’72. Right before the election in ’72, Jill, Joe, Neilia, and I were in his kitchen. How do you forget that?”

Fabian said that “that would be three years before that now-famous blind date.”

“Stevenson said his first inkling something was up was when Jill refused to go with him to meet Bruce Springsteen, who was booked to appear at the Stone Balloon,” Fabian said.

“She said ‘Joe asked me to keep an eye on the boys.’” Stevenson said. “I just thought in the back of my mind, ‘Hmmm.’”

“Then one day a man came into his bar and asked him to pay damages for a fender bender that involved Jill,” Fabian said.

“He looks at me, and he says, ‘Oh, she wasn’t driving.’ I said, ‘Her beloved Corvette she wasn’t driving?’ He goes, ‘Sen. Biden was driving it,’ and I went, ‘What?’” Stevenson recalled.

“Did you confront Jill at the time and say, ‘What’s going on here?’” Fabian asked.

“Yes I did,” Stevenson replied. “She didn’t say anything. She just looked at me. I said, ‘You gotta go. You gotta go get your own place.’”

Jill Biden and Bill Stevenson were formally divorced in May of 1975. Stevenson, who Fabian noted later was convicted on federal fraud charges and sentenced to six years of probation for passing bad checks, blamed politics for the legal issues. He said the divorce from Jill “became contentious” in Fabian’s telling of it when she tried to get a stake in the Stone Balloon.

“He has just written a book about his life and is considering publishing it,” Fabian noted.

Fabian also asked Stevenson why he waited until now to tell this story.

“We’re talking about decades and decades ago. This story comes out right before the election; a lot of people are going to ask some questions,” Fabian asked.

“It’s years ago, but guess what? It’s so current right now because he is picking on people about character,” Stevenson replied.

Stevenson also denied that any Republican Party or Trump campaign officials reached out to him to get him to go public with his story.

The Bidens are denying Stevenson’s account, for what it’s worth.

“These claims are fictitious, seemingly to sell and promote a book,” Jill Biden’s spokesperson said according to Inside Edition. “The relationship of Joe and Jill Biden is well documented. Jill Biden separated from her first husband irreconcilably in the fall of 1974 and moved out of their marital home. Joe and Jill Biden had their first date in March of 1975 and they married in June of 1977.”

At the end of the interview package, Inside Edition’s anchor wrapped the segment by noting that Stevenson said he voted for Barack Obama and Biden twice in 2008 and 2012 but will be voting for Trump this year because of “Trump’s stance on police issues.”

Oh I agree.

Possibly even moreso.

In addition to her past infidelity in running off to Joe, now she’s propping him up and leading an obvious man struggling in his mental state to events, commercials, speaking on his behalf, finishing his stuck sentences. SHE wants the First Lady title more than he wants the Presidency I bet.
