Judging from his and wife Jill’s online chat with U.S. Women’s Soccer star Megan Rapinoe, it looks like Joe Biden was allowed out of his basement dungeon TV studio and allowed to move up into the kitchen, so the guy’s definitely limbering up for that hardball interview with Joe and Mika Friday morning.
We almost didn’t post this clip because, to be fair, it’s very possible that Biden has no idea how many grandchildren he has; he only recently discovered he has a new grandchild (whom he doesn’t seem to want to talk about, and for whom his son doesn’t seem to want to pay child support).
Still, watching Biden away from his basement teleprompter setup was a bit awkward — not as awkward as him and Hillary Clinton staring silently at their webcams for 20 seconds, but awkward nonetheless.
Joe Biden says he has 6 granddaughters… then corrects himself to 5… then immediately again down to 4

And Jill isn’t going to correct him. She just lets it go like no one will notice.

That Hunter has so many illegitimate kids that Joe can't keep them straight

Is he counting the newest one from Hunter he’s never met? Or even acknowledged?

He’s a mess and she should be ashamed

Is jill going to babysit him on each interview?

People want this guy for President?!
His wife’s gotta be by his side to answer questions for him.

I have noticed that too, he can’t do an appearance without her.

This is like a scene from Westworld gone bad Old Dolores lets her Human clone malfunction before they go have economic intercourse

On one hand it’s sad. He’s an older guy and to some degree, it’s nature taking its course but on the other hand, he’s the one insisting to be out there in the running for the most powerful job in the world so the criticism is fair.

There won’t be any debates. There will be excuse after excuse why they can’t make it work. Keep Joe hidden and protected

The DNC’s best bet is to demand Trump debate a hologram of Biden with Jill answering in a low voice.
— [Redacted] (@thebleepstate) April 30, 2020
Guaranteed there will be no debates.
— bradley ryder (@bradleyryder) April 30, 2020
You're fooling yourself if you actually think Trump will debate against him. The Dems will enact one last desperate scramble to switch out and prop up some "knight in shiny armor" to oppose Trump. Fortunately, it won't work, because we are all wise to their corruption & tricks.🇺🇸
— Kyle V. Schiefer 🇺🇸 (@VincentSchiefer) April 30, 2020
When it was Trump vs. Hillary, she could hold her own but this guy is going to get slaughtered by Trump. It's gonna get ugly and embarrassing quick. You know Biden is praying this virus keeps going so he doesn't have to debate, let alone stand for an hour.

He’ll never make it there. Hillary will come out of the convention with the nomination.

@JoeBiden so how many grandkids do you actually have? What are their names?
