“The media loves Joe Biden because they know that Kamala Harris will be in charge and she is left of [Sen.] Bernie [Sanders],” Donald Trump Jr. told Washington Secrets columnist Paul Bedard on Monday.
Voters should be concerned about Biden’s mental decline because if he is elected, there’s a good chance he won’t be the one governing, Trump Jr. suggested in an interview about his new book, Liberal Privilege: Joe Biden and the Democrats’ Defense of the Indefensible.
At the same time, Trump Jr. explained, “The media loves him because they can sell him as a moderate.”
The book focuses on the Democratic presidential candidate’s record over decades as a senator and as Barack Obama’s vice president for eight years.
Doctor: “Something is not right”
It also contains the opinion of Obama’s White House doctor, retired Navy Rear Adm. Ronnie Jackson, about Biden’s mental fitness.
“The best way I can describe him every time I see him is that he’s just lost,” Jackson said, as quoted in the book. “I won’t make any particular diagnosis about dementia. … But what I will say is that something is not right.”
“It’d be a joke if this was a grandfather, you’d say, ‘Fine, he’s forgetful,’” Trump Jr. told Bedard. “This is a guy that’s a contender to hold the nuclear football. That should scare us as Americans.”
And while Biden’s legislative record has shown more flip-flopping than any other congressperson in history, according to Trump Jr., the media rarely talks about it.
New book gives info on Biden’s record
Trump Jr.’s new book follows his previous bestseller, Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us. He said he wrote the new book during the early days of the coronavirus shutdowns.
“I couldn’t go to work, you couldn’t do anything, so I’m sitting at home, and I’m saying, ‘Man, it’s amazing. Joe Biden’s been sitting in Washington, D.C., for half a century as an elected official, and they are pretending like it’s some sort of blank slate. He’s never done anything,” Trump Jr. said.
“I’m saying, there has to be more, so I literally started looking, and I started seeing all of these things, I’m like, man, you know, I think the American people would like to see that,” he concluded.
Indeed, I’m hoping many voters do look closely at Biden and Harris between now and November so that they know exactly what the country will be getting if they elect them to the White House.
