Is He Mentally Fit to Serve a Full Term and Beat RFK?

Is He Mentally Fit to Serve a Full Term and Beat RFK?

The Late Show host Stephen Colbert took a humorous swipe at the growing concerns over President Joe Biden’s alleged cognitive decline on Wednesday. He introduced a Dr. Seuss parody book titled, “Oh, the Places For Joe!”

After playing a clip of 83-year-old Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC) supporting Biden with the rhyme, “We’re ridin’ with Biden,” Colbert couldn’t resist, quipping, “Ridin’ with Biden is catchy, but if it’s all gonna be based on rhymes, maybe Preparis for Harris? Or Jump in the Car With Klobuchar? Or Take a Closer Looker at Senator Cory Booker?”

Colbert then showcased a clip of Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) telling reporters that Democrats weren’t “even in the same book” regarding Biden, let alone on the “same page.”

“Wow, that’s pretty rough. Could I recommend a new book?” Colbert laughed, before pulling out a parody of Dr. Seuss’ Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, humorously renamed “Oh, the Places For Joe!”

Reading from his parody book, the Late Show host said, “Is he mentally fit? Can he serve a whole term? Can he beat RFK with his brain full of worm? Just ask him, just ask him, the man loves to talk, as long as you ask him before eight o’clock.”

The theme of Biden’s alleged cognitive decline was also a topic on Monday’s episode of The Daily Show where host Jon Stewart criticized Democrats for making “bullshit” excuses for Biden’s “shocking display of cognitive difficulty.”

“I am in no way saying Biden’s gotta drop out, but can’t we stress test this candidacy?” Stewart questioned. “Do you have any idea how thirsty Americans are for any hint of inspiration or leadership and a release from this choice of a megalomaniac and a suffocating gerontocracy? It is crushing our fucking spirits!”
