Age comes for all, but I’m not sure someone who age has already come for is the best spokesperson for pointing that out. Enter Rep. Nancy Pelosi, who appeared on MSNBC to offer her vast wealth of knowledge and expertise following Donald Trump’s win in the New Hampshire primary.
During the interview, she decided it’d be a great idea to accuse the former president of being senile. Specifically, she claimed he has “cognitive disorders.” What she wasn’t counting on was having a senile moment of her own immediately after.
Nancy Pelosi says she's "not gonna spend too much time on Donald Trump's cognitive disorders," then confuses him with Joe Biden pic.twitter.com/iqIjtrb4Ja— RNC Research (@RNCResearch) January 24, 2024
PELOSI: Well, let me just say, I’m not going to spend too much time on Donald Trump’s cognitive disorders, but what I am going to say, and I want to, in friendship, say to Chris, he tried to say that Nikki Haley did not allow the national guard to come, but it was Nancy Pelosi. It was nei…nobody. It was Joe…it was Donald Trump.
Hoo boy. Glad we got that all sorted.
Of note is that Pelosi is 83 years old. It’s a good day when she doesn’t sound like she’s inebriated. She has no standing to talk about anyone else’s supposed cognitive decline. She is a walking advertisement for age limits in politics.
Further, the fact that she’s making her comments while supporting Joe Biden, another politician over 80 who is absolutely gone mentally and may not even know where he is half the time, is astounding. I know most politicians are shameless, but my word, the disconnect there is incredible. We have so many instances of Biden showing he’s senile in a given week that I get bored writing about them.
The next ten months are going to be mind-numbing, with both sides shouting at each other about whose brain is more toasted. As long as Biden is the Democrat nominee, though, he and his supporters are going to lose that argument. Everyone slows down as they get older, but the contrast between Trump and the current president is still very stark.
Besides, how do you run a basement campaign while at the same time accusing your opponent, who is doing events, of being cognitively deficient? That just doesn’t work, especially when Biden is providing new clips nearly every single day illustrating how painfully senile he is despite being put on a massive teleprompter in highly controlled environments. No doubt, his campaign will try to make that case, but it’s not an argument they will win outright.
