Anything basically?

And is it still okay to discuss Biden's mental acuity in relation to him potentially being the next POTUS and having his hands on the nuclear launch codes? There are definitely signs that he is slipping mentally, whether that's an illness or just natural at his advanced age. Seems this should be very relevant to any discussions - it's certainly going to be a consideration when people are casting their votes. As evidenced by many interviews with voters on the street.

So is it just nicknames we can't use, or no talk about mental issues period?
If you are a qualified doctor, have examined Biden and come to a medical conclusion and can show proof that he does indeed have "mental issues" then I don't see an issue with it.

If you (like many have) just post an edited clip of Biden stumbling over a word or a phrase and say that this is proof of his alleged "mental issues" then I believe that is not allowed.

Some of the commentary I've heard over the last few days:

Oh Biden doesn't need Pennsylvania, Biden can loose Pennsylvania and still win. Trump needs Pennsylvania to win.

<flicks the channel>

Oh Biden doesn't need Florida, Biden can loose Florida and still win. Trump needs Florida to win.



But what if Biden looses Pennsylvania AND Florida, what then!?

And what is the difference between making very valid points about Biden consistently displaying mental slippages... and say insinuating that Trump is a moron?

They're both motivated by the same thing... you think the person is not mentally capable of carrying out their duties.

I get cutting out the cheap nicknames... that's one thing. But I would like to know (from a mod preferably) if the actual discussion of these things is off the table?

Have you or any other Trump supporters ever posted anything insinuating Trump has mental health issues? I mean there is more than enough evidence out there seeing as he makes the same mistakes as Biden yet never a peep.

The difference in my opinion is simple, when someone posts a clip of Biden and makes an accusation its usually followed shortly after with someone posting the full clip proving that yet again Trump supporters post edited clips to make it look like Biden has issues.

Case in point here

He still wins, he can lose both.

Trump needs to win at least 3 of Wisconsin, Michigan, Arizona, Georgia and North Carolina in addition to those 2.

It'll be worse than 2016 if Trump wins. Many in media and fraud pollsters should resign. One ABC poll had Biden 17 points up in Pennsylvania two days ago. End of the day we can only have one winner, but the point is everyone whos anti-trump believes he's getting crushed next week.

There only two polling sites that give Trump a winning chance Rasmussen and Trafalgar, the rest say its over for Trump by a wide margin. This what makes it fun in away. Could 98 percent of pollsters be this off in their data? We'll see!

I've seen 1000's of posts at this point, of people either genuinely suggesting that Trump is a moron or making jokes about him being such.

It's exactly the same as suggesting Biden is slipping mentally... you are insinuating that both individuals are mentally incapable of doing their jobs!

That's why I think it's important to know, is it just nicknames that are off the table? Or talk of mental acuity more generally?

Because we should be balanced, and apply the same standard to both sides of the discussion if that is the case.
