There are reports that Joe Biden has been erupting in rage, resorting to expletives, because his age, 80 at his last birthday just weeks ago, remains a topic of news coverage.
He’s claimed he’ll run for office again, despite evidence of worsening cognitive issues, which means those issues likely will remain a political weapon for his critics.
With that, he’s probably not going to be pleased that the Daily Mail, one of the largest news publications in the world, has made a headline out of his age, and the concern over his decline “as he occupies the Oval Office.”
Reports reveal he’s vented, “You think I don’t know how f***ing old I am?” And they suggest he frequently complains to others “how often his age is mentioned in the press.”
But the report cited reasons his age remains a concern: “Some of the more worrisome mistakes have included Biden repeating that his son Beau, who died of cancer, perished while serving in Iraq; forgetting a congresswoman he shouted out in a speech had already died, and awkwardly shaking French President Emmanuel Macron’s hand for 42 seconds.”
And they are just the most recent.
He’s also recently fallen off his bicycle, wandered away from Secret Service across the lawn of the White House, and repeatedly has looked befuddled while trying to get off a stage after a speech.
Explained the report, “While Biden was always notoriously gaffe-prone, the microscope of the presidency has left him looking and acting his age at times.”
In fact, several experts have suggested Biden be examined for evidence of dementia, the age-related loss of cognitive abilities.
The report cited his appearing to “get lost” while leaving the stage at a conference in September, which Texas Sen. Ted Cruz called “terrifying.”
Republican adviser, Steve Guest said, “Joe Biden is completely lost on stage. Scary and sad.”
The report noted, “A man came to the microphone at the event to say: ‘Uh, Mr. President, thank you,’ as he wandered around the stage.”
Then days later Biden called out for Rep. Jackie Walorski, of Indiana, who had died.
“Jackie, are you here? Where’s Jackie?” Biden said.
And Biden grabbed Macron’s hand – for an “awkward 42 seconds” – during a White House meeting.
“Macron appeared on numerous occasions to try to break the embrace, but Biden held firm and didn’t let go,” the report said.
Other “odd gaffes” quickly followed. “Off the stage, while the two presidents greeted members of the audience Biden seemed to wander aimlessly and had to be continually brought back to the group by Macron,” the Daily Mail documented.
Other recent Biden blunders have been his confusion about which is Syria and which is Libya, and he’s called Kamala Harris “president” several times.
He once erupted during a meeting, calling a White House reporter a “stupid son of a —–” and repeatedly has had trouble remembering the names of even those he appointed to office.
Regarding Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Biden said, “I want to thank Sec-, the former general, I keep calling him ‘General.’ My – the guy who runs that outfit over there…”
Once during a visit to Houston, he asked, “What am I doing here?”
There are many stories of his stories about his “Amtrak” days when he commuted to Washington by rail. But some of them are suspect.
“In May 2021 he recalled traveling via Amtrak to see his mother while he was vice president in 2013. But his mother had died in 2010,” the report said.
He claimed, wildly, that 200 million people died of COVID-19 under President Trump’s watch.
Biden also has been caught apparently reading instructions from his teleprompter.
“It is noteworthy that the percentage of women who register to vote and cast a ballot is consistently higher than the percentage of the men who do so. End of quote. Repeat the line,” he once said.
The Daily Mail also pointed out he tripped going up the stairs to Air Force One.
He’s also confused his granddaughter with his late son, Beau Biden. He also mixed up two of his granddaughters.
His problems date back decades. The Daily Mail reported; “In 2008, Biden told then-Missouri state senator Chuck Graham to stand up for the crowd at a rally, before realizing he was in a wheelchair.”
