Stuttergate and Joe Biden's Health Issues

Apparently, Biden supporters are claiming that their candidate’s evident neurological impairments are the result of a tendency to stutter. Yesterday, the issue broke into public view when former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders seemed to make fun of Biden’s stutter.

To be fair, ask yourself this: having watched Joe Biden speak in public for decades now, when have you ever seen hims stutter?

Obviously Stuttergate is designed to cover up Biden’s medical problems. The other day a physician who examined him declared Biden to be healthy enough to perform the duties of president.

To that Dr. David Scheiner took exception. For the record, Dr.Scheiner treated President Obama for two decades before the latter entered the White House.

According to Dr. Scheiner, Jo Biden is not a “healthy guy.” The Washington Examiner has the story:

Former President Barack Obama’s once-longtime doctor said the medical records Joe Biden’s campaign disclosed are concerning and incomplete.

“He’s not a healthy guy,” Dr. David Scheiner, who was Obama's personal physician for 22 years before he became president, concluded after reading the records. “He’s not in bad shape for his age, but I wouldn't say he’s in outstanding health. Could I guarantee he won't have issues for the next four years? He has a lot of issues that are just sort of sitting there.”

Dr. Scheiner believes that there might well be neurological damage in a man who suffered two brain aneurysms. And who might have had a stroke:

Scheiner said he wants to see MRI results for Trump to check for strokes, as well as a neurocognitive assessment. He raised concerns about the president’s speech pattern and behavior, saying it may be a sign of neurological damage.

“Something happened,” Scheiner said of the Walter Reed visit.

He concludes:

“The stakes are too high,” Scheiner said. “If they make a mistake because their cognitive skills are diminished, we pay the price.”

The cognitive skills of virtually every Ivy League university are excellent, but somehow they cannot wring a scintilla of wisdom from all that wattage. As a result, almost all we get are mistakes, and the entire nation is paying the price. Yes, Dr. Scheiner, something did happen: Jeffrey Epstein did not kill himself.

"Scheiner said he wants to see MRI results for Trump to check for strokes, as well as a neurocognitive assessment." Trump has had two brain aneurysms.

Who knew?
