“President Joe Biden drew criticism from social media after responding with a long pause when asked in an interview if first lady Jill Biden would support him running for office again in 2024.
‘Dr. Biden is for it?’ MSNBC’s Jonathan Capehart asked Biden about a 2024 run in a clip that aired Friday. Biden then paused and looked down at the floor, prompting Capehart to follow up with, ‘Mr. President?’
‘Dr. Biden thinks that, my wife thinks that,’ Biden said before pausing again. ‘That we’re doing something very important, and I shouldn’t walk away from it.’”
This disturbing episode in not an aberration, the commander-in-chief has a penchant for shaking hands with invisible people, losing his orientation when walking off a stage, and losing his thought while delivering a speech or even answering a simple question.
When a friendly reporter asked Biden in an interview if his wife would support him running for office again in 2024, he slipped into a fugue state, leaving the TV audience wondering if:
The president had fallen asleep?
If he was trying to remember the answer he’d rehearsed with his handlers?
If he was preoccupied wondering if his diapers were leaking?
If he was reminiscing about his halcyon days working as a lifeguard when little black kids rubbed his legs while he fended off Corn Pop, who was a really bad dude.
What’s up with Joe Biden? The answer is that his cognitive skills are so diminished that at this point Corn Pop would make a better president.
