Even Hillary Has a “Legitimate Issue” with Biden Now

As a complete failure on just about every level, Hillary Clinton’s “advice” should always be taken with a very heavy grain of salt, if at all. But that isn’t stopping her from continuing to assume she knows just what everyone in politics needs to do.

For Biden, her most recent advice is to basically “lean into” what most view as his shortcomings, making them a strength. To be sure, the theory of the advice isn’t necessarily bad. I mean, many people have learned that if you can make a so-called weakness into a blessing in disguise, you are only stronger for it.

However, I think the time for Biden to do that has passed, especially considering the weakness in this case is his age and all that comes with it.

Hillary was speaking with MSNBC on Wednesday, just one day before special counsel Robert Hur reported that Biden is so far gone that he’s not even fit to be held before a jury.

During this interview, Hillary told host Alex Wagner that Biden’s age is certainly a “legitimate issue.” Hell, she even admitted that a number of people she “talk(s) to… in the White House” know it’s an issue, too. But she encourages Biden to “lean into” it.


Well, for starters, she mentions that Biden is only three years older than Donald Trump.

No doubt she’s trying to insinuate that if Biden’s mind is not all there, then there are also “legitimate issues” with Trump’s.

The problem, of course, is that no one is really saying that. Even most who oppose him have to admit he’s in far better health, both physically and mentally, than Joe Biden.

The second reason Clinton mentions why Biden should “lean into” his age is that being older usually means you have a lot of “experience.”

“I think Biden also should lean into the fact that he’s experienced, and that experience isn’t just in the political arena. It’s like, the stuff of, you know, human experience.”

Do you mean the kind of experiences where he’s called “the big guy” and knows all about his son’s drug addictions and shady business deals?

Yeah, I don’t think that’s a strength.

Then again, he’d have to remember that. And as Hur clearly pointed out in his report, Biden can’t even remember the year his oldest son died or how, let alone that he’s currently the sitting president and not VP anymore.

If he leans any farther into his age, he’s going to fall over…again.
