Trump—who literally can’t use an umbrella—plans to paint Biden as too mentally deficient to be President!

Our addled President's reelection strategy just shifted to painting Joe Biden as the senile one. Seriously.

President Trump is so desperate to stop Joe Biden he has come up with a plan even more addled than the Ukraine scheme that got him impeached.

“Trump and GOP mount coordinated campaign to paint Biden as senile,” Politico reports. They aim to attack “Joe Biden’s mental capacity” to be president.

Seriously! It’s a pretty demented move given that Trump himself is dangerously out of touch and clueless.

How limited is Trump’s own mental capacity? Let us count the ways—starting with the amazing video of him unable to use an umbrella:

1. Can’t use an Umbrella

Don’t you hate it when an umbrella is too wide for a doorway? And how you then have to abandon a perfectly good umbrella, because there’s absolutely nothing you can do to make it smaller?

Yeah, me too.

2. Looking at the Solar Eclipse

Even schoolchildren know you shouldn’t look straight into an eclipse. Even Ivanka knows how very, very bad it is for you.

But apparently, though, her dad missed the memo. He looked at an eclipse with his bare eyes in August 2017, despite being surrounded by people in protective glasses.

Does that seem like smarter behavior than Biden has shown?

3. Drinking water like a “new vampire eats a small animal”

No, that description isn’t an exaggeration. Trump stopped in the middle of a press briefing to hold and drink from a glass of water in the most bizarre way possible. Of course, the moment immediately went viral:

If it seems petty to point out the POTUS’s inability to sip like a regular person, remember that Trump himself repeatedly mocked Marco Rubio for a similar gaffe back in 2013. What’s that saying about glass houses and throwing stones?

We were left with a lot of questions after the White House Halloween celebration in which Trump put a piece of candy on a trick-or-treater’s head, rather than in their bag. Was Trump trying to combine a trick and a treat? Are millionaires used to making their underlings hand out candy? On what planet is this normal behavior?

Sure, it could happen to anyone. But the fact is that it happened to one of the most powerful men on the planet—and in an apparent Emperor’s New Clothes twist, no one around him bothered mentioning it.

You just KNOW that if Biden had a similar accident, Trump would permanently nickname him “Toilet Paper Joe,” or something like that.

6. Doesn’t remember anyone’s name…including Melania

The next time Trump feels like mocking Biden for a momentary memory lapse, he should take a minute to watch this video and then reconsider:

7. Trump shouldn’t talk, period

…and the next time Trump wants to make fun of Biden for bungling a sentence or two, he should watch this and consider if it’s really wise for him to open his mouth.

8. He says he didn’t say it, but he did

Trump gave a rambling statement where he claimed that he never said Mexico would pay for the border wall by writing out a check:

“When during the campaign I would say, ‘Mexico’s going to pay for it,’ obviously I never said this and I never meant they’re going to write out a check”

The only problem, of course, is that he actually did say that. Here’s what Trump said when questioned about the details of his claim on the Sean Hannity show:

“They’ll pay. They’ll pay. In one form or another,” Trump responded. “They may even write us a check by the time they see what happens. They may.”

Trump probably shouldn’t make fun of Biden’s memory when he can’t even keep his own words straight.

9. Struggles with geography

For a “very stable genius,” Trump sure doesn’t know much about geography.

10. The Sniffing

Yes, Biden’s got some sniffing issues—no one can deny that. But Trump is really, really not the right person to try to take the moral high ground here.

Not only was his nose out of control, Trump also slurred his speech and just straight-up did not sound okay during the talk.

Maybe instead of going after Biden, Trump’s team should spend more time protecting Trump from the biggest threat to his competence: himself.
