We're seeing more people -- these are from your own war -- woman a lot more people signed up for Medicare Advantage out to be changed what there's no nobody is his vice president.
I don't know this is about -- -- I don't know we are under a lot of the rest to make.
But I think it will be better served if we don't keep -- -- each other well don't take all the formulas that.
Where -- minds are straight there what is constantly cutting off like hot topic on what is constant cutting off someone like this.
Both -- stuff -- about someone's personality says their rude.
Quite down joining us on the current accounts to talk about the science behind this all as medically team's doctor keep tablet -- meant you didn't interrupt him see you -- -- of the let me -- I don't have a on the couch yeah.
If -- watching that obviously he's not a patient of yours but you're watching on camera and as a doctor.
What does that say about his personality.
So let's start with the part that you might have called someone else and -- so first he could be completely doing this for stage presence.
To show the other man as inexperienced not worthy of his time bullet conversation -- ornate and and ridicule the other man yeah diminishing but.
Here's the other reality is that Joseph Biden has shown.
Tremendous disregard for the perspectives of others.
Section that -- -- it worse for instance to say you have three undergraduate degrees when you have one which he's done.
Great to say you graduated at the top of your law school class when you graduated the bottom in other words don't into -- me with the facts.
That's the same kind of wrap.
What do I need to say and -- -- held fast in order to owns the minds of people listening he has no regard.
For letting them process that's one part of us.
There's more and this is the -- -- -- hear about right.
I did not evaluate Joseph Biden we do but if someone said to me listen we want to do what's really required to know what happened there.
You have to put dementia it's on the differential diagnosis.
You have to say bizarre laughter.
Into erupt if if this were your dad or you grandfather.
When you say if you brought him to me keep you get -- tell me is the easy suffering with dementia because he can't seem to listen he's laughing -- appropriately but.
But all of a second doctor because here's where that doesn't ring treated me.
He's commanded the details were so solid people with -- can't remember the things that you he was -- substance -- good so that's I mean is rattling off credit factors went back.
It wasn't always -- but he is not a command of is caught early enough.
Is seeing the way he sees these issues I'm not -- -- I haven't evaluated him but psychological testing is anybody's guess what it would show.
Not knowing every fact isn't required to diagnose dementia and I'm not -- has him saying he put on the differential.
-- -- -- That's part of it and command of the fact he said we were totally out of Afghanistan.
On a certain day when we're gonna leave troops there.
So he missed a major fact listen.
You wanna put these things on the different today doesn't speaking as a psychiatrist today and call me as a political strategist.
So you'd you'd want as alcohol level.
Why because he was not bizarre listen in that clip we showed when Paul Ryan -- Sort of putting him in his place and to know what you're not by any means suggesting -- -- Just a clear that a Russian -- I have no idea what I'm saying it is a drug directive life what I'm saying is from a physician -- perspective scientifically.
Called this the science of personality of interrupting.
What would you put on the differential diagnosis.
You'd have to be just you know waiting for malpractice case.
From anyone -- you if you brought -- a parent or grandparent if I didn't say well let's do work.
A pet skin a cat scan and MRI and a psychological battery of tests to see if there's an element to dementia.
Because you have to do how could you not yet to put on the table and -- you have to put on the table -- sort of quietly in the history are -- -- right.
And there is this moment in the tape where Paul Ryan looks at him and does have a moment where he's -- -- is something really weird happening here.
I had that moment and I'm a doctor.
The PLO always feared it was this won't be controversial we'll know -- house stepping up clock we want to -- -- on the --
