Sunday on CBS’s Face The Nation, Senator and lifelong Communist Bernie Sanders said that former Gov. Nikki Haley’s (R-SC) call for politicians over the age of 75 to take competency tests is “absurd.”
Sanders said, “What did she mean? I don’t understand what — [laughs]. Yeah, no. I think that’s absurd. You know, there’s a level–”
“Absurd,” host Margaret Brennan repeated.
“Yeah, you know, we are fighting racism, we’re fighting sexism, we’re fighting homophobia, I think we should also be fighting ageism. Trust people, look at people and say, you know, this person is competent, this person is not competent. There are a lot of 40-year-olds out there who ain’t particularly competent. Older people, you know, you look at the individual, I don’t think you make a blanket statement.”
Asked if he was concerned about the ages of the current and former presidents, Sanders replied, “Look at what they do, what they believe in. What are they fighting for? What does Donald Trump stand for? Do you believe in that? Well, I certainly don’t. What does Joe Biden stand for? What is he doing? Has he accomplished — look at — look at him in that way, not on age.”
Here’s the reality: every time Joe Biden makes a public appearance, his competency is being tested and scrutinized, and the American people and the world at large can clearly see he is mentally and physically unfit to serve.
