Impending Electionmageddon | The Roundtable Ep. 29
In a week that seems straight from the fever dream, everything seems to trend toward American upheaval and even crackup. New election-war-games run by the most virtuous and good predict violence come Election Day no matter what the outcome. Joe Biden’s mental prowess continues its slow creep towards senility, which might explain why the media has been trying to run cover for him to drop out of debating Trump in September. “Ethnomathematics” are even trending to try and make you think 2+2≠4. At least Trader Joe’s hasn’t bent the knee.

Person, Woman, Man, Camera, TV | The Roundtable Ep. 29 Segment 2
The media has been running cover for Joe Biden in an attempt to prevent him from being fed (barely) alive to President Trump on the debate stage. On the flip side, President Trump is amusingly quite proud of himself for acing a memory question on a mental acuity test he took. What does that stark difference reveal? Our editors have the answers. Timestamp: 28:00
