Kate Bedingfield, the communications director for former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign, says that questions about his cognitive health are “ridiculous.”
Move along, nothing to see here. All is well.
The Biden aide, who serves as the former vice president’s deputy campaign manager, became combative when Henry asked her about Biden’s many recent gaffes while campaigning.
Henry wanted to know, in particular, about Biden misspeaking Saturday in Missouri, when he uttered the words, “Because we cannot get — re-elect — we cannot win this re-election — excuse me. We can only re-elect Donald Trump.”
After noting that “the Trump campaign is pushing these videos out there,” Henry told Bedingfield, “They’re asking a basic question: Is Joe Biden fit to be commander in chief?”
“How do you answer that?” Henry asked.
As opposed to answering Henry’s inquiry with a rational response, Bedingfield lashed out and attacked his question.
“I have to say this is a disgusting smear tactic and this kind of thing is exactly why people want Joe Biden to be president,” she said.
She then labeled questions about the 77-year-old’s fitness for office as nothing more than “conspiracy theory.”
