Former President Donald Trump isn’t letting up on his predictions that President Joe Biden isn’t going to make it to Election Day.
The GOP frontrunner joined Fox News host Sean Hannity for a televised town hall in Davenport, Iowa on Tuesday, telling viewers that the 81-year-old Democratic incumbent who he hilariously ridiculed as “walking on toothpicks” doesn’t have the stamina to survive another grueling 11 months of campaigning.
“I personally don’t think he makes it, OK? I think he’s in bad shape physically,” said Trump in response to a question about whether his opponent would remain his party’s nominee through next fall.
In keeping with his “toothpicks” remark, President Trump joked that he could knock Biden over by blowing some wind in his direction.
“Do you remember when he said I’d like to take him behind the barn? If he took me behind the barn and I went like this,” Trump said before pretending to blow on Biden, “I believe he’d fall over… who knows?”
Biden’s ability to make a joke about beating him up, Trump added, was another example of how the media labels him a “dictator” while giving the incumbent a pass.
“And by the way, it was OK for him to say that ‘I’d like to take him behind,’ and he could say that and everyone thought it was so cute. If I ever said it, they’d say, ‘He’s a dictator. He’s a horrible human being.’ You know, it’s a whole double standard we have,” Trump added.
Despite physicals from his presidential physician attesting to his health, President Biden remains dogged by concerns that he is too old to run for a second term, a feeling shared by a large majority of Americans in most polls. He regularly shuffles while walking and is outfitted with special shoes that have grippier soles. Even some of his allies have asked him to consider stepping aside for the good of the country.
“I personally don’t think he makes it physically,” Trump said. “And mentally, I would say he’s possibly equally as bad and maybe worse. I don’t know. I will say this. He’s got vicious people surrounding him around that beautiful Oval Office. There are people in that Oval Office that are evil people, bad people, smart people, young, vicious. They’re communists.”
