Nap time? Biden unexpectedly skips key dinner at G-20 summit


New to PJ Media:

Old Joe Biden was supposed to attend the gala dinner at the G-20 summit in Bali on Tuesday night. All the coolest world leaders were there, and the so-called president was supposed to be a central figure in the process. Instead, he retreated to his hotel room, without explanation. Why does this matter? Because not too long ago, Old Joe dismissed concerns about his advancing age and his even more rapidly progressing dementia by telling us to watch him and see what an active guy he really is. Well, we are looking at it now.

In September, media sycophant Scott Pelley of 60 minutes asked Biden: “Some people ask if you are fit for the job. And when you hear that, I wonder what you think.” Biden responded: “Look at me.” Then she added in her inimitable semi-coherent style: “And she’s ma—, honestly, that’s all I think. Look at me. If you think I don’t have the energy level or the mental acuity, then… then, you know, that’s one thing. It’s another thing, you just watch and, you know, follow my schedule. Do what I’m doing.

Biden even claimed that his energy level impressed younger leaders: “I think, you know, I don’t think so, when I sit down with our NATO allies and hold them together, I don’t have them saying, ‘Wait a minute, how old you? What are you… what do you say? You know, I mean, it’s a matter of, you know, that old expression: The proof of the pudding is in the eating. I mean, I, I, I respect the fact that people say, you know, ‘You’re old.’ And, but I think it relates to how much energy he has and whether or not the work that he’s doing is consistent with what anyone of any age could do.”

This “watch me” business became something of a Biden talking point. In October, she said in his inimitable goofy style:

Look at me. You know, am I slowing down? Is it me, don’t I have the same rhythm? Or, you know, uh, and that old joke, you know, uh, uh, everybody talks about, you know, the new seventies, fifty and all that stuff, you know, hey, you know, it could be… I — I am a great respect of faith. I could get a disease tomorrow, I could, you know, die tomorrow. But I, you know, in terms of my energy level, in terms of how much I can do, I think people should look and say, ‘He, c, still has the same passion for what he’s doing? making?’ And if they think I do and can do it, then that’s fine. If they don’t, then they should vote against me. Not against me, they should encourage me not to go. But that’s not how I feel.”
