Joe Biden shamelessly declared his total lack of sympathy for young Americans in January, openly stating that he had “no empathy” for the concerns of the nation’s youth.
Biden was promoting his book in an event with a Los Angeles Times journalist, and struck a tone that could be called completely callous about Millennial and Generation Z Americans.
“The younger generation now tells me how tough things are—give me a break. No, no, I have no empathy for it, give me a break.”
Biden went on to claim that Americans of previous generations were better at improving their life circumstances and “changing the world.” The former Vice President conveniently chose not to mention the far more generous economic circumstances enjoyed by those of his own generation, that included far more affordable costs of living, education, housing and better job prospects.
If Biden were to run a presidential campaign exclusively seeking to advance the interests of older Americans-writing off the youth of the United States as mere whiners- it could open a path for President Trump and other conservatives to widen their appeal to American youth. Tucker Carlson has spoken of policies that would enable the right wing to appeal to young Americans, including holding the handsomely debt-funded and left-wing university system accountable for a portion of the massive student loan debt incurred by young Americans.
It’s possible that the geriatric career politician could face a backlash in the Democratic Party for his callous slight to young people, a critical constituency on the left. Should Biden defeat President Trump in the 2020 election, he would be sworn in as the oldest President in American history at the beginning of his term, being a ripe 77 years old on inauguration day.
WATCH: “Are You A Junkie?” Joe Biden FLIPS On CBS Reporter After Question About Cognitive Test
Biden didn’t appreciate the question.
Joe Biden responded angrily to a question from a CBS News reporter on taking a cognitive test Wednesday, asking Errol Barnett if he was a “junkie” and stating that he should have to take a drug test in order to interview Biden with the assumption he was taking cocaine.
“No, I haven’t taken a test… Why the hell would I take a test? Come on, man! That’s like saying to you, before you got on this program, you take a test whether you’re taking cocaine or not? Are you a junkie?”
The inference that CBS reporter Errol Barnett is a junkie would’ve almost certainly been blasted as offensive if President Trump or another public figure made the claim. At the most, Biden’s ad hominem response to the legitimate question reveals his sensitivity to claims of his own cognitive decline.
“I know you’re trying to goad me… I’m so looking forward to having an opportunity to sit with the president or stand with the president in the debates.”
President Trump has argued that Biden should take an equivalent of the Montreal Cognitive Fitness Test, which he took around a year ago with results indicating strong cognitive capacity. The question of mental acuity has consistently arisen as Biden frequently commits mental errors and gaffes during public appearances, ranging from forgetting which state he’s in, confusing his wife and his sister, and even forgetting what office he’s campaigning for.
Biden went on to struggle to pronounce the phrase “physical fitness.”
