So Rick, I skipped to the first bookmark (the little yellow marks on the slider) and immediately ran headlong into a [nonsense] avalanche. YouTube Pundit Guy showed Trump claiming that he was about to unveil a new healthcare plan, then showed Joy Reid and Biden talking about Trump trying to take away healthcare, then called them liars. The actual facts are as followed:

In late June 2020 the Trump administration asked the SCOTUS to strike down the ACA. If that happens 21 million Americans will lose their healthcare. During a pandemic. In other words, it's 100% accurate to say that - as we speak - Donald J. Trump has people actively working on plan to deprive 21 million people of their healthcare.

About 3 weeks ago Trump announced that he would be unveiling a new healthcare overhaul in two weeks. The two week countdown expired on August 2nd. Trump didn't unveil a new healthcare overhaul, or explain why he didn't, or mention it at all. Maybe he forgot? So here we are, in a world where the President of the United States makes and breaks off the cuff promises about healthcare, and whose only real move has been to try to kill the ACA.

Biden and Reid were right. YouTube Pundit Guy is a liar. It's important to check facts.

Also, this is petty. Watch the Axios interview, where Trump justifies the Russians supplying weapons and financial aid to the Taliban and tries to explain that the US Covid response is one of the best in the world by saying that deaths per capita is a meaningless statistic. Oh, and a lot of people are dying, but "it is what it is." Stop hiding behind whataboutisms and look at your President.

Is that "BDS" or just simple "BS"?

What is the source of that diagnosis?
The same folks who came up with "TDS"?

With Trump's repeated history of instability and irrationality, it is beyond laughable for the Trump misinformation machine to try to make 'mental stability' (or lack thereof) an issue about Biden.

ALL of you guys need a hobby or something - cause the Trump / Biden debate around here has become beyond ridiculous! Especially because it has largely reduced our entire political dilemma down to the impact just two highly imperfect politicians - which shows me a whole lot of emotional thinking is going on. Not to mention, I see people skewering one party and being almost totally silent about the sins and imperfections of their own favored party and sacred ones - which shows an inability to be impartial per the reality of things. How about saying something new, for crying out loud! I'd hate to be visiting your houses, not because of the bringing up contentious politics, but due to the same constant topic relentlessly boring everyone to death! How about bringing up some new and interesting topics that aren't the same-old, same-old???!!!

If you seriously can’t see Biden is slipping badly...

This author’s dislike of Trump is obvious. And he can see the truth about Biden’s mental capacity.

At the risk of incurring the wrath of Philip by responding to your assertions...

I am well aware of the narrative that Trump and his cronies are trying to perpetuate about Biden, but I am unaware of any official diagnosis to support that narrative.

However, I am aware of the concerns that mental health professionals have expressed about Trump's mental state.
Trump's mental state — not Biden's — is the real concern, mental health professionals say

Based on your response, I take it you did not read the link I posted, because it addresses both Trump AND Biden.
