It’s a stretch to say Joe Biden is a functional adult if you’ve watched him talk the past six months.
Joe Biden is showing his age and the Democrats and mainstream media are pretending it isn’t happening. He’s had a long, unaccomplished, and gaffe filled political career. It’s his third run at the presidency and last gasp to have some kind of significance in history. He’s avoiding all difficult interviews and barely leaves his basement.
He gave an odd closing to his wife’s speech at the Democratic National Convention. It sounded like he said, “I’m Joe Biden’s husband” and repeated “lady” four times like a broken record. It wasn’t a good look for the candidate who confused his wife and sister on stage earlier this year at a campaign event. He’s showing the effects of old age that we all will experience at some point in our lives.
He’s had a long, unaccomplished, and gaffe filled political career.
Should he be the person to lead the nation suffering from declining health? How well can he communicate with foreign leaders if he can’t close out his wife’s speech without screwing up? Over half of likely voters don’t think he will finish his term if he gets elected. That doesn’t give the feeling he will be a strong and competent leader if people think he can’t finish a term. He missed his chance in 2016 when he still was an effective politician and in better health.
The “Any Functional Adult 2020” stickers and signs are absurd. That implies that Donald Trump isn’t a functional adult. He’s making historic deals in the Middle East with Israel and driving the Left crazy. That sounds pretty functional. Vox even said the deal with the UAE was a big win for Trump. As Joe Biden once said, “This is a big f*cking deal.”

People with those functional adult signs in their yards don’t really mean it either. Let’s say Trump and Biden both weren’t functional. Do you think someone with that yard sign would accept someone like Ted Cruz, Nikki Haley, or Tom Cotton? They would put that sign up for any Republican in the White House. It should say “Any functional adult intersectional Leftist 2020” if they are being honest. That wouldn’t exist either though.
President Trump doesn’t help his case to appear as a functional adult with his Twitter behavior. He comes across as petty and self-absorbed in many of his tweets. Some are hilarious, but there are too many bad ones. His perception would be very different if he controlled his tweets. He needs to control himself until November to not turn off any more suburban women and what independents are left.
The next time you see someone with one of these asinine yard signs, ask them if they would accept a conservative and America loving replacement for Trump. They would call you racist, bigoted, sexist, and so on. Only a person from the far-left would be viable and suggest they change their sign. It probably would get replaced with something about tolerance and inclusion while being intolerant of people with conservative beliefs.
