The 2020 presidential election has become a lot more brutal and cutthroat than some folks want to acknowledge.
For starters, the Democrat establishment is pulling strings behind the scenes to get Joe Biden’s former 2020 rivals to come out of the woodwork and endorse his candidacy, with most of these endorsements taking place back to back, within 24 hours of one another.

As the DNC pulls strings for the former vice president, they’re also making concerted moves to block Tulsi Gabbard from the debate stage; this goes as far as waiting until the 2020 hopeful meets their requirements before moving the goalpost and intentionally disqualifying her.
Despite all this, Bernie Sanders doesn’t seem to grasp the nature of this election. Yesterday, the socialist candidate professed that he will not bring light to the obvious decline of Biden’s mental health, as documented by Breitbart News. Sanders’ decision comes as the former vice president gladly accepts the help from the Democrat establishment and continues to make serious blunders on the campaign trail.
Why Sanders Won’t Mention Biden’s Declining Acuity
During a Fox News town hall, Sanders was asked about the state of his political rival’s mental health.
Bret Baier, a moderator of yesterday’s town hall, also pointed out that Biden’s acuity is a cause of concern for certain Democrats. Many on the left believe that President Trump will be too much for the blunder-prone Biden to deal with in a general election; however, Sanders maintained that he isn’t going to move down this path.
According to the socialist candidate, he refuses to “go at that level in attacking” the former vice president. Sanders did, however, state that he and Biden maintain ” very significant political differences” and will focus on these differences, rather than on “personal attacks.”
Playing By Different Rules
While Sanders professes that Biden’s mental acuity, or rather lack thereof, is “for people to decide,” Biden is playing by entirely different rules. The socialist candidate is free to run his campaign however he likes; although, he shouldn’t be shocked when Biden ultimately winds up with the most delegates and the Democrat Party’s nomination.

The 2020 presidential election is not a fair race or level playing field, for reasons already stated. Acting as if it is doesn’t make Sanders look pious to voters; it only ensures a primary victory for the corrupt Democrat establishment yet again.
