MSNBC descended into full panic mode following Biden’s special counsel’s findings on the president’s age, mental health, and memory.
The hosts were not happy the special counsel had the nerve to question Biden’s obvious mental decline.
Rather than reporting factual news, the MSNBC hosts did what they do best: spin a narrative in favor of the Democrats and the Biden administration.
MSNBC panel: How dare that “partisan” special counsel launch "cheap shot, derogatory attacks" against Biden by saying he has a "poor memory." pic.twitter.com/uQ9RD5uuJ0— Townhall.com (@townhallcom) February 9, 2024
As Townhall reported:
MSNBC did not disappoint either, highlighting how not recalling things in a deposition is routine. Like CNN’s Toobin, Lawrence O’Donnell and Ari Melber were not pleased with the derogatory, partisan cheap shots aimed at Biden regarding his age and mental health.
The whole segment oozed with Acela Media’s other sin: an addiction to credentialism, where opinions they find disagreeable are dismissed due to a lack of experts making the arguments. In this case, Mr. Hur isn’t a doctor, so who cares about the language in Biden’s memory? Rachel Maddow, Joy Reid, and Chris Hayes participated in this panel. It’s what you’d expect to overhear from coastal elitist dining at a restaurant serving overpriced food.
The news comes just a day after Biden claimed he had a conversation with another dead world leader this week as concerns mount about his cognitive decline.
The Daily Fetched reported:
Biden claimed that he spoke recently with former German Chancellor Helmet Kohl regarding the events of January 6th, 2021, at the US Capitol.
During a fundraiser in New York on Wednesday, Biden said:
“And then Helmut Kohl turned to me and said, ‘What would you say, Mr. President, if you picked up the London Times and learned that 1,000 people had broken down the doors of the British parliament, killed some bobbies on the way in, to deny the prime minister to take office.”
Helmet Kohl, who was the German chancellor between 1984 to 1989, died in 2017.
Earlier this week, Biden told a crowd in Las Vegas about speaking with French President Francois Mitterrand in 2021, despite him being dead since 1996.
