‘Unfit To Lead’: New RNC Ad Questions Joe Biden’s Health

OPINION | This article contains commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

A new advertisement from the Republican National Committee claimed presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is “unfit to lead” the country.

The ad, titled “Joe Biden: Unfit To Lead,” aired for the first on Friday showing the former vice president struggling to answer questions, finish thoughts, or complete his sentences.

As the Daily Wire reports, the ad features a number of disparaging remarks from Democratic Senator Cory Booker (who dropped from the 2020 presidential primary), Obama senior adviser David Axelrod, and Fox News anchor Bret Baier.

Here’s a partial transcript, from the report:

Narrator: It’s 3 a.m. and your children are safe and asleep. But there’s a phone in the White House and it’s ringing, something is happening in the world. Your vote will decide will who answers that call.

Booker: There’s a lot of people who are concerned about Joe Biden.

Axelrod: He kind bumps along kind of Mr. Magooing his way through this.

Baier: There were some answers Shannon, that were word salad. I mean they were just all over the map.

According to Republican National Committee spokesman Steve Guest, voters should see for themselves what Biden actually does and says so they can determine if he suffers from cognitive decline.

“Americans are starting to see firsthand that Joe Biden is unfit to lead, a concern Democrats themselves have expressed since he launched his campaign,” Guest said per the Daily Wire. “At a time when law and order is under attack, the choice is clear: leave the security of our nation in the hands of an incompetent lifelong politician who supports defunding the police, or trust President Trump to prioritize the safety of the American people.”
