Trump’s Project 2025, Biden’s Parkinson’s joint denials

White House Denying Joe Biden’s Parkinson’s Checkup and Donald Trump Acting Clueless About Project 2025 Are Apparently One in One, According to “The Daily Show.”

Co-hosts Desi Lydic and Jordan Klepper took time to bash both candidates and their “desperate” attempts to ignore public concerns on Tuesday’s episode.

The Comedy Central duo went into both parties, starting with Trump, who has recently acted oblivious to the infamous Project 2025 plan. For anyone unaware, “Project 2025 is a 900-page plan for Donald Trump’s second term. It’s basically conservative fan fiction, which could very well become fan reality,” Lydic said.

Although his own team appears to be behind it, Trump previously wrote that he “knows nothing about Project 2025” on his Truth Social page.

Although neither Lydic nor Klepper accept the former president’s denial.

“The people behind Project 2025 were some of Donald Trump’s main aides, but obviously it’s getting a little too controversial for Trump now that he’s running away from it like a disabled veteran who wants a selfie,” Lydic noted.

“Every tweet is like a Cheesecake Factory menu, you know? There’s something for everybody. And he doesn’t mind if it’s full of contradictions,” Klepper joked.

The conversation then veered away from the former president to the current one, who has also been under fire lately. There is growing concern about Biden’s physical and mental ability to handle another term.

Concerns grew after a recent discovery that a Parkinson’s doctor visited the White House eight times in eight months. However, it was reported that only one of those appointments was actually for Biden. But when asked about it, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre refused to confirm or deny.

“It just makes it look like you’re hiding something. It almost would have been better to just make something up, like, ‘Joe and Jill and Dr. Parkinson’s is in trouble.” I mean, do you want the youth vote or not?” Lydic joked.

To wrap up the episode, the couple called in comedian and fellow correspondent Michael Kosta, who impersonated a White House analyst to answer their questions.

“The White House can’t release information and then be angry when the media tries to report it,” Lydic told Kosta, who responded, “Biden is fine, but even if he’s not, which he is, the White House has a amazing medical staff with lots of spare organs.”
