Biden calls man a damn liar for challenging him on Ukraine, then pivots to calling him fat and challenges him to pushup contest. Says the guy is "too old" to vote for him ;D Hilariously demented. via Jimmy Dore.
Supposedly he said "facts" and not "fat". But regardless. Biden was not presidential during the entire exchange. In some ways his character is the Democratic version of Trump.

Biden is imploding on his own. There's no way he can beat Trump from what I'm seeing.

This is true. It is shocking that the other candidates are so far left that he apparently remains the only viable option in the general election.

Unless the economy tanks or Trump gets convicted in the senate, no one will beat him, despite all the hand wringing from the left.

Perhaps that's the opening Bloomberg spotted?

Probably. But not sure he has much of a chance either. Late entry and not widely loved.

I also wonder if going forward, the only people who will ever be president are billionaires? It might be easier for JayZ or Tiger Woods to get elected than some of these clowns.

Anyone who is considering running for President as a Republican had better be very wealthy or he will be bankrupted by witch hunts in the House.

I can think of one person who would be willing to do it, able to afford to defend himself from the witch hunts, and has already been put through the mill so that they don't have much to throw at him.

Right, I think the Jimmy Dore crew didn't hear him correctly*.. I meant that he was insinuating that he was fat by saying he was sedentary and boasting he could beat the guy in a physical challenge. That's besides the point, anyways. It's funny because the guy was referring to how corrupt Biden seems, and Biden tried to pivot into how "in shape" he is.

It reminded me of a story a guest on the Jocko Podcast, Brian Stann told related to playing football at the Naval Academy. He played under Paul Johnson, who later would invite him to do motivational speaking for his subsequent teams. He said the elderly Johnson would faux-attack him and genuinely thought he could still take him, even though Stann was by that point a champion mixed martial arts fighter and combat veteran. Biden wasn't that deluded, since the guy he was picking on was old and out of shape, but it's the same kind of thing where old people don't realize how... incongruent they're being. Biden seems to do that a lot.

* EDIT actually, right here, at 2:04 it sounds like he's about to call the guy a fat-ass :D
