MICHAEL KNOWLES (HOST): Some leftists are trying to blame this on Joe Biden's childhood stutter. I kid you not. Because they realize the only thing they have, the only arrow in their quiver, is identity victimhood politics. And Joe Biden is many things but he is not a victim. Right? Even according to their own identity politics pyramid of victimhood, he's like the least victimized person on earth. He's a straight, white man, who's old, who's had political power for 50 years. Right? There's like no way to paint this guy as a victim. So what they're doing now is saying if you make fun of Joe Biden, if you tell any jokes about him, if you suggest -- let's say you're not even making fun of him. You're just saying "gosh, maybe this guy shouldn't be on the campaign trail because he can't remember his own name." If you say that what you're really doing is making fun of him for his childhood stutter. So, they're saying it's all because of this childhood stutter. It's not that he's cognitively declining, it's just a speech thing. 

Where was this childhood stutter for the past 40 years? If this is a childhood stutter that just conveniently and suddenly reappeared, why is it reappearing? It doesn't -- like, they're speaking like we don't know who Joe Biden is. They're speaking like we've never seen him before. Joe Biden has been in the public eye for a very long time. He wasn't talking like this five years ago, or ten years ago, or fifteen years ago. He's talking about this now because he's obviously declining. By the way, how does a childhood stutter cause you to get basic math wrong? How does a childhood stutter cause you to forget your boss' name? How does a childhood stutter cause you to forget your own name? It doesn't. Not at all.
