In a stunning turn of events, President Joe Biden’s mental faculties are once again being called into question. Special counsel Robert Hur’s investigation into Biden’s handling of classified documents has described the president as an “elderly man with a poor memory.” It seems that Biden’s forgetfulness is not limited to just his keys or where he left his glasses, as he mixed up the presidents of Egypt and Mexico in a recent speech. Oh boy, it’s like watching a game of presidential trivia with grandpa, except this time it’s not so cute anymore.

Biden’s allies, however, are quick to come to his defense. Department of Homeland Security Director Alejandro Mayorkas insists that preparing for a meeting with President Biden is the most difficult part because he is so sharp and detail-oriented. Hmm, forgive us if we’re a little skeptical. Mixing up world leaders doesn’t exactly scream “sharp” and “detail-oriented.” But hey, who are we to argue with the president’s biggest cheerleaders?
It seems that the American people share our concerns about Biden’s mental fitness. A recent national poll shows that a whopping 75% of voters, including half of Democrats, have doubts about whether Biden is physically and mentally fit for a second term in office. And who can blame them? If we can’t trust the president to remember basic facts and figures, how can we trust him to make important decisions that affect our nation’s security and well-being?
But fear not, Biden’s supporters are here to dismiss any notion that our dear leader may be losing a step or two. Mitch Landrieu, the national co-chair for Biden’s 2024 campaign, says that Biden is tough, smart, and on his game. Well, if Landrieu says it, it must be true, right? Vice President Kamala Harris also chimed in, calling the report “gratuitous, inaccurate, and inappropriate.” Ah yes, resorting to name-calling and deflection, the classic tactics of those with no real argument to make.
Even Biden’s personal counsel, Bob Bauer, wants us to believe that the president doesn’t have a problem with his memory. According to Bauer, it’s the special counsel who was asking bad questions, not Biden who was struggling to answer them. Ah, yes, the old “blame the questioner” routine. It’s a clever way to shift the focus away from Biden’s clear mental lapses.
In the end, it’s clear that Biden’s allies will stop at nothing to defend him, even if it means ignoring the glaring evidence right in front of us. But as patriotic Americans, we have the right to question the mental fitness of our leaders and demand transparency. The American people deserve a president who can remember where he left his car keys, let alone make important decisions for our country. So until President Biden can prove that he’s up to the task, it’s fair to have doubts about his ability to lead. And no amount of spin from his allies can change that.
