REPORT: Liberal website Vox questions Biden’s ‘mental fitness for office’


In an article published on Friday, liberal website Vox outlined serious concerns about Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden’s mental fitness.

Citing his performance on the debate stage Thursday evening in Houston, Vox senior correspondent Zack Beauchamp levied that former Vice President Biden, 76, did not seem to have a firm hold of his faculties and was more than just “gaffe-prone.” The article asserted that several answers the current front-running candidate gave throughout the evening “made the question of Biden’s mental fitness for office impossible to ignore.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“It’s an awkward topic that can easily verge into outright ageism,” the article said of discussing Biden’s mental capacity. “But Biden sounds sloppier and less put together than the other two frontrunners from his age bracket, Sens. Bernie Sanders (78) and Elizabeth Warren (70). He’s always been gaffe-prone, to be sure, but something about it feels worse now to a lot of Democratic voters.”

The article by Vox points out several moments from the debate, including when Biden suggested that parents “have the record player on at night” to benefit their children’s education and his answer to a question about withdrawing troops from Iran.

“Play the radio, make sure the television — excuse me, make sure you have the record player on at night, the — the — make sure that kids hear words,” Biden said in answer to a question about inequality in schools.

Here’s some of what he said about Iraq:

“Foreign policy is supposed to be one of Biden’s clear areas of competence,” Beauchamp wrote. “But that’s not what happened. After asserting that the withdrawal wasn’t a mistake, Biden instead talked for a bit about his support for the initial invasion of Iraq back in the Bush administration.”
