Ability to Laugh at Others Shows Mental Fitness

By: John Semmens

Joy Behar told her co-hosts on ABC’s “The View” that President Biden’s ability to laugh at White House Correspondents Dinner host Trevor Noah’s jokes about people suffering from inflation “proves his mental fitness. It wasn’t like he was all confused or anything. He was laughing right along with everyone else.”

“When you think of it, though, what’s so bad about not being able to afford to put gas in your car or meat on your dinner table?” she added. “Wouldn’t all of our lives be better if we drove or ate less? If the President’s policies have prompted these healthier outcomes isn’t that a good thing? Well, it’s certainly not a thing that Trump ever would have tried to force on the American people. That’s the key difference between Trump’s appeal to petty selfishness and Biden’s appeal to collective betterment through shared suffering.”
