There is no getting around the fact that Joe Biden’s age and cognitive decline are now the biggest issues in the 2024 Presidential Election.

That leaves Democrats in a position of having to defend the indefensible.

And Karine Jean-Pierre had one humiliating defense of Joe Biden’s cognitive decline.

Jon Stewart returned to Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with a monologue mocking Democrats for demanding the American people trust them when they say Joe Biden is mentally fit to be President at age 81 because of his interactions with them in private meetings.

Stewart said Democrats’ portrayal of Biden flew in the face of his public presentation where his team is terrified to put him in any setting beyond a ten-second video on TikTok.

“Because if you’re telling us behind the scenes he is sharp and full of energy and on top of it and really in control and leading, you should film that. That would be good to show to people instead of a TikTok where he goes, ‘Chocolate chip cookie!’ We see he’s in charge, you see, ‘I like cookies!’” Stewart exclaimed.

The digs at Biden’s age cut deeper because Special Counsel Robert Hur released a report revealing that Biden couldn’t remember when he was Vice President or when his son died.

Jon Stewart was the prototype of the late-night host who turned comedy shows into group therapy sessions for politics-obsessed Democrats so his commentary struck a nerve in the media.

Reporters actually asked White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre to respond to Stewart’s comments.

There are many ways she could have handled this question.

But no one would have advised Jean-Pierre to take the tact she chose and claim Biden’s performance in the primetime press conference given hours after the release of the Hur report alleviated concerns that he is too senile to be President.

“Okay. Okay. Okay. So look, you — I think and we believe — the President went out on Thursday on the day that the report came out. It was important, we believe it was important for the, for the American people to hear directly from this President and to lay out in a very forceful way, what we thought about, about the special counsel report, what he thought about the special counsel report,” Jean-Pierre stated.

In that press conference, Biden forgot the name of the parish that gave him the rosary he wears daily following his son’s death and confused the Presidents of Mexico and Egypt.

Jean-Pierre then attacked the fact that Hur spoke the truth about Biden’s cognitive impairment rather than dispute the fact that Biden suffers from memory lapses.

“But we also, the President’s going to stand and defend himself. The characterization, the way that report was characterized was not, not just me saying this. Legal experts on both sides said it was flatly wrong and it was gratuitous. And it was inappropriate,” Jean-Pierre declared.

Democrats can only try to pretend the emperor has clothes for so long.

The American people can see Joe Biden’s physical and mental state.
