Oh no Joe, say it ain’t so…
The doors may already be starting to come off of the Democrat clown car now that geriatric former Vice President Joe Biden has officially entered the race much to the delight of the Trump hating media.
Biden quickly assumed the mantle of front-runner largely due to his decades spent as a D.C. insider and despite his proclivity for the killer gaffe that could quickly knock him back down into the Democrat crab barrel where 23 aspiring nominees are dueling for the honor of being shellacked by President Trump next year.
With the embrace of the 76-year-old Biden who is a young whippersnapper compared to Bernie Sanders who is running a distant second, the Democrats are at risk of squandering the political capital that they have spent years building up with millennials who may not be so quick to embrace elderly candidates like the less than dynamic duo.
How could the Dems who have spent the better part of their time since Hillary’s loss yammering about the diverse new generation of party leaders like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her radical socialist posse come to trot out the same old white guy candidate that a massive chunk of their identity-obsessed base hates?
At least one media personality has dared to point out the obvious – that compared to the energetic high-energy POTUS, the leading Democrats just look old.
Former Republican congressman turned media pundit Joe Scarborough aka “Morning Joe” who loathes Trump with a purple passion mused about how the incumbent is going be “hard to beat” because he looks “20 years younger” than ‘Sleepy Joe’ Biden, Comrade Bernie, and 69-year-old Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren.

Via The Washington Examiner, “Scarborough: Trump looks ’20 years younger than a lot of Democratic candidates'”:
“Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough admitted on Wednesday President Trump, 72, will be hard to beat because he has a lot of energy for his age, which allows him to be engaging with voters at his rallies.
“Jim Vandehei, a couple weeks ago, when Donald Trump said, I’m young, I’ve got more vigor than them, well you know, you look at a clip like that, and he does. He just does,” Scarborough said.
“Let’s just be blunt about Donald Trump. That guy can do on a campaign stage what nobody else can do: He can engage the audience. He can engage viewers, despite the hateful rhetoric, despite everything else. You can see that guy is gearing up for 2020 and yes, Democrats, he is going to be hard to beat, because he does look like he is about 20 years younger than a lot of Democratic candidates,” he said.
It didn’t take long for the leader of the free world to needle his adversaries with rare praise for Scarborough via Twitter.
Thank you Joe and remember, the BRAIN is much sharper also! https://t.co/h1fG1GRQ99

The president also took a shot at Biden who is exhibiting signs that some may attribute to senility in the early stages of his campaign and after a year and a half, may add drooling on himself to his repertoire by pointing out that his “BRAIN” is “much sharper also!”
As for Scarborough, he will be savaged by the social media hate mob but he seems to be coming to the conclusion that the Democrats have little chance of winning back the White House in 2020.
To paraphrase basketball legend Bobby Knight, if Trump is inevitable just relax and enjoy it.
