I Listened to 43 HOURS of Joe Biden Clips From 1986-2018 Looking for His “Childhood Stutter”
I began the “Joe Biden Childhood Stutter Project” on May 6th.
I started it after reading Valerie Biden’s claim that Joe’s “childhood stutter” was the sole reason for her brother’s speaking challenges today.
Come on, man…
I’ve always been suspicious of the “stutter” excuse, but it was Valerie’s over-the-top defense of her brother’s “blunders,” that inspired me to take action.
The lady doth protest too much, methinks.
Here is Valerie’s comment regarding the stutter, printed on April 12, 2022, by the Daily Mail:
President Joe Biden‘s sister Valerie Biden Owens tore into ‘Trump people’ for making fun of the president’s sometimes halting delivery during speeches.
‘From the time he was a little boy, he stuttered,’ Owens told Elle in an interview published Tuesday. ‘This kid, he couldn’t string more than three words together at a time. So, I think when you see him pausing and the unpleasant people around this country, the right wing, Trump people say, “Oh, look at him. He doesn’t know what he’s talking about,” it is remnants of when he was a kid and stuttered.’
She added, ‘Humiliation has a long shelf life.’
Owens was asked by the women’s magazine what was one thing she wished the public knew about her brother.
The president’s boyhood stuttering problem is well documented, but Owens conceded that he’s still criticized when he ‘falters on a word.’
Like most of you, I’ve listened to countless media people and politicians push the infamous “childhood stutter” excuse to dismiss criticism of Joe’s cognitive decline.
But it was Valerie’s blanket statement that inspired me to investigate the much-ballyhooed stutter.
As I got started, I remembered a tweet I read a while back from filmmaker Mike Cernovich, where he wondered if any journalist had gone back and watched old Biden clips to see if the stutter actually existed beyond his “childhood” years.
Good question, Mike.
Not surprisingly, nobody in the mainstream media had done anything like that. I actually couldn’t find anyone who had listened to hours of Biden clips looking for his stutter.
But I found an LA Times opinion writer who wrote a piece called, “What others see as Joe Biden’s mental slips, I see as the tricks of a master stutterer.”
In his piece, Dan Roche says that while the rest of us see senility when Joe can’t remember a name or who his wife is, he sees a master class stutterer working his craft.
