Don Jr. Gets Pummeled For Mocking Biden’s Bike Ride, ‘Let’s See Your Old Man on a Bike, Skipper!’
Yesterday we reported on the fact that the video of Biden out for a vigorous bike ride, flying by some of the media in a mask, would make a powerful contrast to the obese, suited-up, Donald Trump. We said it would make a huge contrast when juxtaposed against Trump shuffling down a ramp at West Point. Indeed, it wasn’t long before someone put the videos out side by side in one tweet.

Compelling. We knew it was powerful but seeing it side by side really hits the viewer as to which candidate is the one in decline. It sure didn’t take long to get a response from the Trump team.
No one would expect Don Jr. to respond with wit or any deep analysis, but this one is truly special and could be a bit revealing.
What does Joe Biden’s staged bike ride have to do w/ the fact that he can’t remember where he is 50% of the time?
If @realDonaldTrump had 2 brain aneurysms, like Joe has had, the media would go nuts even if no symptom were manifest.

First of all, many people don’t know that Biden did have two brain aneurysms in 1988, which last we checked was 32 years ago. Don Jr. is trying to make it sound like a recent development, which is a real low-blow. Second, the tweet reads like Don Jr. figured out halfway through writing it that the media would be absolutely correct to go “nuts” if the president of the United States had “two brain aneurysms” and thus had to add something to make it innocuous-sounding.
Speaking of which, let’s talk about Don Jr.’s oddly-worded cry. He says the media would go nuts about a brain injury in Trump, “Even if no symptoms were manifest.” That doesn’t sound like Don Jr.’s normal vocabulary. It is almost like this is a subject that has gone around the Trump camp in some form or fashion. We cannot know, but this is certainly one highly defensive tweet, and an ill-thought-out one, too. Why give the video even more attention? And why personalize it in such a weird way? Is it because Trump has had some sort of brain incident that has impacted his balance?
Americans weren’t happy with the accusation:
Let's see your old man on a bike, skipper. I will pay cash money to watch it happen. https://t.co/D21QlFuets

There are lots of non-extradition nations to choose from, Junior. You still have a few months to decide. https://t.co/L4aQ73nQjV

Not only can’t your rapist dad ride a bike, but he can’t even walk down a ramp, or hold a glass of water. Hell, he even has trouble standing. And are you really gonna talk about mental capacity? Your father is out here talking about injecting bleach and can’t pronounce Yosemite. https://t.co/w8GTdn9rqV

Your fat fuck daddy can't even walk down a ramp, and lumbers out of EVERY press conference like a dog who's been fed donuts and beer every day.
When's the last time you remembered where YOU were on a daily basis, what with all the shit you put up YOUR nose, huh? https://t.co/DL7bVyUF7N

Seriously, asswipe, you're going there?
Your dad seriously suggested injecting household disinfectants as a "cleaning" of the lungs.
Most *children* know better than that!

Is junior mad because his old man can't ride a bike or because he never taught junior to ride one? https://t.co/fLYzraV6l6

The Trumps are getting so desperate that they are now attacking Joe Biden for an aneurism he had 32 years ago.

Your demented father needed to hold a general's hand just to walk down a wheelchair ramp. Yo, Semites!
