Joe Biden says US facing “four historic crises” all at same time

U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Monday addressed the ongoing wildfires along the west coast of the country, saying as a nation they face one of the “most difficult moments in our history” in his view, with four historic crises at the same time.

Biden listed the crises facing Americans, with the COVID-19 pandemic being the first. He said the nation was also facing the “worst economic crisis since the Great Depression,” and a “reckoning” on race he said is long overdue. He then went on to say the fourth and final crisis was the “punishing reality” of climate change, which is resulting in numerous wildfires, hurricanes, and droughts in different parts of the country.

Biden said people are having to either evacuate during the COVID-19 pandemic or stay put “as ashes and smoke pollute the air they breathe.”
“People are not just worried about raging fires, they’re worried about the air they breathe and damage to their lungs,” the former vice-president said in Delaware. “Parents are already worried about COVID-19 for their children when they’re indoors and now they’re worried about asthma attacks when their kids are outside.”

At least 35 people have already died due to the fires, with searches ongoing for other people missing.

The Democratic nominee also spoke about Hurricane Laura’s recent impact, and Hurricane Sally heading to the Gulf Coast, saying it’s “a troubling marker” not just due to the increasing hurricane frequency but “more powerful and destructive storms.”

    Biden's brain is facing four crises right now, dementia, Alzheimer's, retrograde amnesia, and intellectual disability.

    Global is an obvious marxist propaganda machine. Biden and the dems are the cause of the race issues in America. Everything that comes out of a democrat or so called liberal or progressive mouth is a lie. Is false. These are elitests who want to control people. Who hate freedom. They won't last as elites in free nations. Only force can keep them in their positions. Global is evil. The democrats have always been the evil in America. They are the institution that is systemically racist in America.

    Joe Sundowner Hiden has the mental acuity of a house plant. His wife and family should be ashamed. This man is obviously suffering from dementia or alzheimers. He does nothing without a teleprompter or pre-screened questions. When he does, or the teleprompter fails, it's a disaster. This is elder abuse!!! Search youtube for biden blunders, see for yourself. One if his staffers who quit recently revealed Biden's wearing diapers and taking meds for dementia.
