Joe Biden Belongs in a Nursing Home for Retired Politicians

By Robert Paul Reyes

In reaction to the Neanderthal conservative policies of the Trump administration the Democratic Party has embraced progressive ideas (Medicare for all, the legalization of marijuana, the Green New Deal, free college tuition and punitive tax rates on millionaires) that are anathema to a moderate bipartisan consensus builder like Joe Biden.

This isn`t your fathers` Democratic Party, and there is no room for the likes of septuagenarian Biden, certainly not as a presidential candidate.

Time and demographics have rendered Biden politically obsolete, he`s too old, too moderate, and most importantly too white to lead the Democratic ticket. Consider the leading Democratic candidates for president:

Sen. Cory Booker: African American and closeted gay?

Pete Buttigieg: openly gay veteran.

Julian Castro: Sí se puede

Sen. Elizabeth Warren: White and .00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 percent Cherokee.

Sen. Kamala D. Harris: father Jamaican and mother Indian.

Beto O`Rourke: White, but young and energetic, and at least he has an Hispanic nickname.

Sen. Bernie Sanders: White as can be, damn even his hair is snow white, but he`s a Democratic Socialist.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar: as moderate as Biden, but at least she`s a female.

Andrew Yang: Don`t know anything about him other than he`s Asian.

Where does Biden fit in this field of Democratic candidates for president? He doesn`t. Period. End of story!

Let me give you an example of how out-of-touch Biden is, in a speech this week before the Unites States Conference of Mayors he referenced Adlai freaking Stevenson. There`s not a millennial alive who knows Jack about Stevenson.

Unless Biden comes out as gay or transgender he doesn`t have a prayer.
