So. How is the new USA admin doing during its first week at work, with cleaning up the last 4 years of gawd almighty scumridden mess ?

Any good stuff out there?

Enacted a bunch of necessary covid policies

not seen many dementia references to Dr Fauci, who is even older than POTUS, nor Nancy Pelosi

it’s a sick double whammy because “jokes” like this are not only referencing Biden’s age, but his occasional hesitation or misspeak, which are well documented side effects from his efforts to control his speech impediment.

This. A bit of focus on actual actions and policy. Biden isn't the second coming, and wasn't my first choice at all, but compare what he's actually doing to what Trump actually did.

Political discourse has been dragged down to this level, another victim of the last four years.

Being rude and offensive isn't actually a requirement in TIO.

Pretty sure cognitive decline starts earlier than your outliers would lead you to believe. I've always said over 70 is too old for a President, I'll stand by that. I'd 100% rather Harris was President for consistency of leadership over he next 8 years.

Sorry all the oldies got offended....

Or maybe she would joke about it because as smart as she was she would know the statistics... unlike some.
