Democrats are so worried about Trump’s decision-making that they want to replace him with an elderly dementia patient with credible #metoo allegations. How can Trump learn to make good decisions the way Democrats are doing by picking Biden? Is that a learnable skill?

The answer depends upon what tribe you belong to.
If you belong to tribe R then no matter how many times people correct, shame, scold, punish, and ridicule you it will intuitively obvious to the most casual observer than you are beyond all hope of learning anything.
If you belong to tribe D then there is no need to learn it. It is an inherent trait that cannot be diminished in any way, certainly not by obvious dementia, and perhaps not even by death.—Joe]
And lest we forget an impeachable Quid pro quo? On tape no less. Even with brain function, Biden has way to much baggage. Debates will be popcorn time!

Oh, yeah, right. You mean, like voting.
That’s one of the many problems with being an authoritarian. An authoritarian can’t pick a candidate (or friend, associate, etc.) based purely on merit, or electability, but will tend instead to select based on status, rank and standing within a given tribe.
The notion, “It’s his turn” can however apply to both Democrats and Republicans (a al JEB). It’s how we ended up with either a Bush or a Clinton in the Whitehouse from 1981 to 2013 (if we include Hillary as sec state). It’s part of the crippling disease that is authoritarianism, and its attendant cult of personality, and we have no apparent immunity to it. The two parties are but two sides of the same coin, or as it were actors in the same play, working their assigned roles from the same script.
