Democrat Operatives And Conservative Pundits Are Asking Legitimate Questions About Biden’s Health
Democrat Operatives And Conservative Pundits Are Asking Legitimate Questions About Biden’s Health By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine
CNN analysts, some of the same ones that offered endless speculation about President Trump’s mental health, his diet, his liking for diet cokes and two scoops of ice cream, and numerous other health-related issues, are now highly upset by anyone that questions 77 year old, former Vice President Joe Biden’s health, saying the questions are “crossing the line.”
Fox News host Sean Hannity and Fox Business host Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery have discussed Biden’s health on the air multiple times. On a May 29 broadcast of “The Five,” Kennedy compared Biden to 2016 Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, saying Democrats are quietly talking about Biden’s health, The Daily Beast reports.
“If you talk to Democrats, who are working for different campaigns, all of the aggressive gossip whisperers — and this is where the action is happening in terms of opposition research — it’s people having a few drinks at a bar and whispering, ‘You know there is something wrong with the former vice president,’” she said. Last week, Kennedy said Biden’s staff should keep their candidate “off a main stage” because he says “stupid things and he slurs,” adding that Biden “does look very tired.”
Hannity, who has used the nickname “Sleepy Joe” to refer to Biden, also called the former vice president “tired,” adding “he does not have the energy for this.”
In a statement to The Daily Beast, Biden campaign press secretary TJ Ducklo said, “These are baseless lies meant to stoke fear in their viewers. It has no place in our public discourse, and anyone amplifying it bears some responsibility for giving it legitimacy it most certainly does not deserve.”
Other liberal blogs jumped into the fray, with far leftist Slate headlining with “Fox News hosts amplify baseless rumors about Joe Biden’s health,” as they write “Fox has brought up Biden’s health on at least four occasions, echoing similar attacks on Hillary Clinton in 2016.”
Before moving along, let me remind readers those “attacks” on Hillary Clinton were very real questions about her health when images clearly showed that she couldn’t even make it up short set of steps without the help of two of her security detail.
It appears that liberal writers also forget the whole passing out in public and having to be carried into her van, during the 2016 campaign season.
Questions about Hillary Clinton’s health were not “attacks,” but actual reporting about her physical fitness as she was running to hold the highest office, the Presidency of the United States.
