Ex-Congressman Suggests Biden Might Belong in Nursing Home

(UnitedHeadlines.com) – On June 30, former Democrat New York Rep. Charles Rangel, 94, weighed in on the controversy surrounding the June 27 debate between President Joe Biden, 81, and former President Donald Trump, 78.

During his interview with “The Cats Roundtable” host John Catsimatidis, Rangel, who represented Harlem in Congress from 1971 to 2017, stated he had “never been more shocked and embarrassed” by a presidential debate. He commented on both candidates, noting that “one is a convicted felon” with “no respect for the truth,” while the other “seemed so damned confused” that Rangel was unsure Biden knew where was.

He noted Biden’s uncertain responses, adding that voters need to think about his mental capabilities over the next four years as, during the debate, Biden repeatedly froze, misspoke, and made false claims. During one of his rambling statements, Biden claimed, “We finally beat Medicare.”

However, he said most voters will support their flawed candidates, as Republicans will vote for Trump, even if he “is in jail,” while most Democrats will vote for Biden even if he “is in a nursing home.” Despite Biden’s flaws and Rangel’s comments about his debate performance, he still supports Biden.

Rangel added that he “would not object” to both candidates taking cognitive tests due to their age.

During a campaign speech on June 28 in North Carolina, Biden acknowledged his debate performance, noting that he is “not a young man. However, he claimed that despite his age, he knows “how to get things done.”

While some Democrats and political commentators called for Biden to drop out of the presidential race following his debate performance, others voiced their support for him.

Former House Speaker, California Rep. Nancy Pelosi, and former President Barack Obama, commented on Biden’s performance, with both of them noting that Biden simply had “a bad night.”

Despite the calls to drop out, Biden has stated he will remain in the race.
