I'm concerned about all of these edited videos showing Biden being unfit.

Manipulated is a better word. Everyday shit like the Daily Mail, NY Post, etc uploads shortened clips of Biden looking like a motionless corpse. And the comments are NOT good.

Is anybody else nervous about this?

I'm Team Biden ALL THE WAY, but I'm skipping the debate.

OP, you should be more concerned that he is the democratic presidential candidate. He is clearly compromised and not up to the arduous tasks of the presidency. A lot can happen between now and then, but he is going to lose in November.

by Anonymousreply 3June 20, 2024 10:12 AM

OP,

A) Any person who at 82 who feels he is entitled to run for President again for a four year term is unfit, irregardless if he does this.

B) Biden knew two years ago that his approval ratings were bad and he was unlikely to be reelected, he did not care. You had a long time to be worried. The time for worry was the time when there was time for there to correct that. See this clip from Alien? Ripley was WORRIED when Kane was outside the hatch. Because she still had control over the elements. When you have control over elements, that is when you WORRY.

by Anonymousreply 6June 20, 2024 10:21 AM

OP - What these shortened clips do is lower expectations and they're misleading because they're edited.

When regular people (i.e. non-MAGAs) see Biden unfiltered, they see someone who is slow but is also focused and understanding of whatever the issues are at hand.

The State of the Union Address is one example and so was his speech at the D-Day gathering.

I'm sure the debate will be the same: Biden will speak slowly and in a low voice, but he will be able to respond to and understand the questions, while Trump will go off topic, become unfocused, play the victim card and sound frothing-at-the-mouth angry - the way someone who really has dementia does.

At this late point the choice is binary: Biden is just old; Trump is nuts.

No he does not. If he revered it, he would not have run for reelection. He would have respected that the office requires someone who is not the same age of the average nursing home patient. He think he is entitled to die in office, like a King. All you people shouting from the rooftops how important democracy is have elected a person who fancies himself King.

R74 - but they're misleadingly edited, which consequently makes them essentially fake.

For example that pan to the right at that G7 meeting changes everything in spite of your saying "it doesn't change things much."

Initially the edited clip made it look like Biden was wandering off like a demented, confused guy. However in the full clip he's seen going over to greet the paratrooper who just landed.

So he deliberately went over to someone, not wandering off like he was confused.

This reminds me of that idiotic January 6 video some congressional conservatives made that showed the people who showed up on that day were actually peaceful and not violent.

Reading about that today, it seems like an odd interpretation by the journalist. I would assume Trump was referring to having a discussion with others about it and possibly formulating his response to what Biden was doing. It certainly would be expected for former presidents to have discussions on foreign policy with people in that sphere and to prepare remarks. He certainly didn't mean he was going to contact the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and order him to do something.

You’re right, r122, it is the same. It’s unfortunate that both sides are using that tactic.

I get it. Some people don't want to vote for Joe Biden. FIne. Don't vote for Joe Biden. Vote for rebuilding our infrastructure. Vote for Gun safety reforms. Vote for Gay Rights, Women's reproductive rights, improved education standards, a tax structure that is fair, and better judges on the federal bench. Vote for POLICIES not personalities. The media hypes horseraces. They promote personalities. Ignore them. Get on the bus that is going in the direction you want to go.

The two-party system is no longer working when these are your two presidential candidates. If you start from there maybe you can figure out a better system. There's nothing in our laws that states we have to have only two political parties, afaik. It's just a tradition that has played itself out. Some can see this and some cannot.

It's the other way round. The clips that show him fit are heavily curated or old. Can you imagine how he is in four and a half years?

I wish that when the usual suspects show doctored video of Biden, the White House would counter the propaganda by showing the actual, undoctored videos. Why doesn't his team do this? Sometimes I worry that his communications team is asleep at the switch, even though KJP herself seems on the ball.

R135 Honestly? I think it comes down to integrity. Right and wrong. Morality. I have this same disagreement with my mother. I think you have to fight "fire with fire." She's all...."That's not right. WE have to be better."

And that's the problem...being better leads to autocrats.

by Anonymousreply 136July 1, 2024 10:39 AM

136, I hear you on the frustration. But I think correcting lies and fake videos is actually the moral thing to do. It would be pretty devastating to show fake and real videos side by side and rub the magats' face in their lies.

I don't know about the falling ones. Older people do fall. But I think the one from a couple weeks ago where he was just standing there stiffly while everyone around him was dancing had to have been faked.

by Anonymousreply 142July 5, 2024 12:44 PM

^ It was NOT faked.

by Anonymousreply 143July 5, 2024 1:06 PM

I am concerned that our government is hiding the fact that we have a demented President. I’m concerned that they keep hiding him and whenever he comes out he either falls, says something that makes no sense, forgets what he’s talking about, can barely walk and looks like a dementia patient.

I’m concerned that the democrats and media keep gaslighting us. We’re not stupid. He is not capable. He’s not. I’m sorry.

But don’t blame the media for showing clips of Biden struggling. They should have been showing us this a long time ago. He has been very bad for at least two years.

by Anonymousreply 144July 5, 2024 1:51 PM

If Joe really fell, it would be all over CNN and Fox in a heartbeat! These are fakes.

You know, we knew how old Joe was when he ran in 2020. We knew he'd age in office. Trump tried real hard to attach the "Sleepy Joe" label to him back in 2020. And in this election cycle they have been laying the groundwork for "Joe's too old" for more than a year. I expected it to accelerate as we got close to election day. The subtext of course, is the Anti Kamala fears.

Right now I am watching Obama and Clinton. Both Bill and Hillary as well as Barack.I suspect they are working the phones doing damage control with party insiders and donors. I am also watching the way the Dems are holding the line. It is very comforting to me that we have not seen a real insurgency. In 1967-68, things got real messy real fast. The DIsney donor announcing that she's withholding cash is disheartening, but I don't yet see a tidal wave of support for her position. Right now, the smart people are watching this and waiting to see how Biden performs with ABC, and with the NATO meeting next week. A lot of this faux outrage generated by the Extreme Right comes out of Putin's troll farms to undermine the NATO meeting.

We need to watch what's going on, in spite of the news coverage. Too many fabrications and lies.Don't jump on the bandwagon when you see the anonymous claims and the invisible "allies."

When Gerald Ford was clumsy they mocked it on SNL. Chevy Chase did popular sketches about it. Now, saying Biden falls down or leaves the stage going the wrong way and has to be led back, or can't speak coherently at times, is verboten. Biden is a sacred cow. That shouldn't happen in a democracy. You need to take a hard look at your leaders. The press should be the first ones to do that. The so-called "fourth estate." When the mainstream media is not reporting the truth, there's something very wrong. Many people have gone to independent media looking for answers. Which they should - they deserve the truth. Then the government and the mainstream media start telling the populace that independent media is fake news, Well - actually THEY are the ones giving out fake news. Biden is fine, nothing to see here. Etc. Think about it. Just don't trust what you're told, like sheep. Be open to the truth.

Absolutely. Let’s protect Joe at all costs, even if it means he takes the entire fucking country with him over the cliff.

At least he “gave it his all,” that’s the ticket.

The difference is that Ford was just a klutz. Biden is a very ill man.

The reason this is even happening is because both candidates have irrational cultists full of zealotry and delusions backing them. Say what you will, but cult members make shit happen, because the intense brainwashing leaves them unburdened with the reason and sense required to acknowledge that their actions may have dire consequences.
