Joe Biden is having problems fulfilling the basic functions of being the President.
Even his supporters have been stunned into silence.
Joe Biden lost his allies with a shocking behavior that’s never been seen before.
Just five years after President Ronald Reagan left office, he announced his Alzheimer’s diagnosis.
Yet even Reagan, the oldest president before Biden was elected, didn’t suffer from the same problems that President Joe Biden is publicly suffering from.
Fox News anchor Chris Wallace said Thursday that the way Biden was dealing with questions wasn’t normal.
Wallace commented on how Biden, during the long-delayed first press conference, stuck to his “White House talking points” for every question that touched on foreign policy.
“I have to say I was also struck by the fact that it seemed on every foreign policy question, not the others but on foreign policy, he went to his briefing book like Jen Psaki does sometimes in the briefings and was reading obviously the guidance White House talking points,” Wallace said. “Covering Ronald Reagan for six years I never saw that. Watching a lot of news conferences over the .years I have never seen that, a president and a news conference reading talking points. He did that on it seemed every foreign policy question.”
Wallace is no critic of Biden’s, in fact Biden’s inaugural speech was the best Wallace’s ever heard in sixty years.
“I thought it was a great speech,” Wallace said about Biden. “I’ve been listening to these inaugural addresses since 1961. John F. Kennedy, ‘Ask not.’ I thought this was the best inaugural address I ever heard.”
Yet even Wallace could see the signs of mental decline in Biden’s press conference.
“Overall, I would say he was empathetic, he handled himself well, he was not fast, certainly. A lot of the answers were pretty slow in coming but he was well briefed and he understood and had control of his brief in terms of what he wanted to say and what he didn’t want to say,” Wallace concluded.
During the press conference Biden appeared to lose his train of thought.
“I’m going to say something outrageous. I have never been particularly poor at calculating how to get things done in the United States Senate periods of the best way to get something done, if you hold near and dear to you that you like to be able to — anyway,” Biden said trailing off.
“We are ready to get a lot done, and if we have to, if there is a complete lockdown and chaos as a result of the filibuster, then we’ll have to go beyond what I’m talking about. Okay, hang on. Uh. Sorry.”
