“Devout Catholic” Joe Biden doesn’t know the “P” in “Psalmist” is silent, not the “s”.pic.twitter.com/P4VAaYbJWT

I get “salmist”, with not attempt at lip-closure at the begin, to get something of a plosive. I get that.
A couple of explanations are possible.
Firstly, he doesn’t really know how it is pronounced, which suggests that he is anything but a “devout” Catholic. I readily accept that he is Catholic, because he was baptized. Hence, he is Catholic and bound to follow the Church’s laws (including can. 916). However, he is manifestly a Bad Catholic, and not in the quirky, “attempt-to-be-cute” sense.
Second, he is seriously cognitively impaired.
Third, see all of the above.
Just watch that video.
It’s worse than #44 and the “corpse-men” thing. Much worse. We know that Obama was a friend of terrorists and anti-American activists who had contempt for the military. That can explain his military illiteracy.
But a “devout” Catholic of Biden’s age not knowing how to pronounce “psalmist”?
