During a media-hyped speech before the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health on Wednesday, President Joe Biden appeared to have a baffling, severe and very public lapse of memory.
As Biden thanked various legislators, such as Republican Sen. Mike Braun of Indiana and Democrat Corey Booker of New Jersey, he scanned the audience and asked for “Representative Jackie.” Not seeing her he continued, “Where’s Jackie? She must not be here … “
The White House reaction that followed has many baffled and rightfully quite concerned.
Republican Rep. Jackie Walorski of Indiana, a proponent of the Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health, was tragically killed with her communications director Emma Thomson and district director Zachary Potts in an Aug. 3 car accident, according to Fox News.
The President of the sole global superpower is confounded by a teleprompter. The Commander in Chief of the most powerful military in the world, with 700+ military spanning the globe and nearly 4,000 nuclear warheads, can barely make it through public appearances.
He wouldn’t pass a driver’s test, unable to distinguish between a pedestrian or a stop sign. But he has his finger on the nuclear trigger.
Just this week he was defeated (yet again) by text on a screen. “End of quote. Repeat the line.” Watch this:
Then there was the cover-up. One can imagine the emergency meeting of White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, et al. They’re already dealing with record inflation, a tanking stock market, and the economy on a verge of a recession. What do they say to that? They claim the US is “stronger economically than we have been in history,”
And now they’re left with this mess to clean up. They’re probably thankful, in a way. Another Biden public screw-up is a welcome relief compared to addressing formula shortages. They’ve handled his gaffes before. To the rescue was Assistant White House Press Secretary Emilie Simons to cover for her boss. She falsified Biden’s statement, begging the public to ignore the words from Biden’s mouth.
……The official White House website has doubled-down on the denial of reality, making up words that were never said to protect a President who may not be able to remember what he had for breakfast.
……This isn’t Biden’s first public embarrassment, and it certainly won’t be his last. Those who have been paying close attention know they’re a regular occurrence. There will be another one in a few days. His public appearances are, for the most part, heavily scripted and before a friendly audience. Say a few words and talk to some folks before making an exit. And Biden isn’t up to the challenge, vanquished by the easiest parts of his presidency.
There was the time he tried to “shake thin air” after a speech and walked off stage bewildered, unsure of where to go.
……And when he was rescued from questions on foreign policy by the Easter Bunny.
……Apparently he goes nowhere without the paper crutch prepared by his handlers. Issues relating to Russia – from the war in Ukraine to the expansion of NATO, etc. – are certainly briefed to the President on a daily basis. And his memory is so bad, his intellect is so defeated, that he cannot recall his constant briefing.
If you need further proof of his mental state, there’s this “cheat sheet,” where he is instructed on how and when to enter the room and leave the room.
……Make no mistake, Biden’s senility is one of the biggest stories in the world. The media’s silence on this matter is telling. Never before has the press tried to so hard to ignore so big a story (I venture this is bigger than Hunter’s laptop), as they’re afraid of what a correct assessment of Biden’s facilities might reveal. Ask whether Dementia-in-Chief is a threat to national security or economic recovery.
Also revealing is the media’s attempts to explain-away or otherwise repackage Biden’s mental and physical deficiencies. Peter Baker, writing for The New York Times, says Biden’s “age has increasingly become an uncomfortable issue for him, his team and his party.” Of course, Biden’s age isn’t the issue per se – it’s Biden’s mind. “Age” is just The New York Times’ way of being polite, of serving the Biden Administration.
Biden’s mental capacity is demonstrably failing. He’s got dementia. His staff knows it. His media tools know it. It’s gotten to the point where they have to cut him off and guide him to his sippy cup and nappy time. The Biden White House has turned into a nursing home. He’s basically signing any executive order that they put in front of him. One of Biden’s former staffers recently said that he’s losing his cognitive abilities.
Signs of Biden’s mental decline have been apparent for a while. If he actually makes it through his term, it will be with meds and aides who have to babysit 24/7 and try to deflect attention away from his bizarre behavior. This numbnuts has access to the nuclear codes.
In all likelihood, he’ll either keel over from a heart attack or stroke, or he’ll become so mentally incapacitated that the embarrassment will be too much even for the Dems. Unfortunately, Kammy Harris is next in line.
