While campaigning in Pembroke Pines, Florida, Tuesday afternoon, Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden made a startling prediction.
“If we do not find an answer to Alzheimer’s — within the next 19 years, every single solitary bed that exists in the United States of America — now — will be occupied by an Alzheimer’s patient,” Biden told an audience of seniors.

The former vice president was appearing at the Southwest Focal Point Senior Center to tout his vision for older Americans. The facility is home to hundreds of seniors who live independently.
The Biden campaign limited his audience to 10 invited guests.
The Democrat spent much of his baleful speech blasting Trump’s handling of the coronavirus and blaming him for “the empty chairs around the dining room table tonight.”
“How many of you have been able to hug your grandkids in the past seven months,” he asked the attendees.
Biden went on to tell the small group of seniors that President Trump thinks they’re “expendable, forgettable and virtually nobody.”
“That’s how he sees seniors,” Biden claimed.
Later he attended a drive-in “voter mobilization” event in Miramar, Florida, where only about 100 cars were allowed.
