The question of the week goes to Pete Doocy of Fox News!
In a brief exchange, Doocy asked Biden why he thinks people want to hear about President Trump when there are so many issues here and now that are affecting them far more than President Trump ever did?
Biden deflects of course, and you can see the smile form on his face.
Dementia or no dementia, he knows exactly what he is doing by playing the blame game.
It may be the only thing that he knows exactly how to do.
Take a look:
Doocy: “Do you still think that voters really want to hear you talking about Trump more than the issues affecting them every day?”

Conservative Brief commented on the exchange between Doocy and Biden:
Doocy was very straightforward: “Do you still think that voters really want to hear you talking about [former President Donald] Trump more than the issues affecting them every day?”
“Well, the reason I mention Trump is because the issues he supports are affecting their lives every day, and are a negative impact on their lives,” Biden said.
President Joe Biden blamed Democrat Terry McAuliffe’s loss in Virginia’s governor’s race on the number of “very conservative folks who turned out in districts,” suggesting that passing his Build Back Better plan likely wouldn’t have made a difference. https://t.co/NVKBBZHSR8

Biden blamed President Trump for the loss of the Virginia governor’s race, according to The New York Post:
Citing everything from former President Donald Trump to “very conservative folks who turned out” at the polls to Americans “upset and uncertain” about COVID-19 and rising prices — rather than disapproval of his political agenda — Biden doubled down, calling on Congress to quickly pass his $1.75 trillion spending bill to win back support.
In Virginia, Republican gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin defeated Democrat Terry McAuliffe by more than 2 percentage points, despite Biden winning the state last year by 10 points.
