Joe Biden hastily put together a press conference to confront the special counsel’s report. Special Counsel Hur called Biden’s memory—and by that, his cognitive ability—into question. The report revealed Biden could not even remember when he was vice president.
During his press conference, Biden ranted and raved. He snapped at reporters who asked him questions. And he fumbled again, confusing two world leaders.
The presser probably did more damage than good. And it doesn’t even seem as if the mainstream media is behind Biden. Many outlets are weighing in on his performance. And it can all be summed up with three, shocking words.
From Fox News:
President Biden attempted to defend his mental acuity in a press conference Thursday night that a host of media outlets are rating as politically damaging to the president…
The New York Times called the event a “political disaster.”…
“For years now, President Biden’s advisers have carefully choreographed his every move to avoid what exploded into view over six hours Thursday: a vivid display of an elderly, irritable man struggling on a public stage,” Axios reported.
Media outlets have been simply brutal in their reporting on Biden’s press conference. Biden was trying to dispel concerns about his cognitive ability, after the damning special counsel’s report. But it seems like he dug himself in deeper when his anger flared and he struggled to remember the names of two presidents.
The New York Times called the presser a “political disaster.” That is telling, considering how left-leaning the paper has become. But Axios had perhaps the most painful assessment of the night. They said that Biden came off as an “elderly, irritable man.”
The Guardian accused Biden of being “combative” and “emotional.”
For years, Democrats have appeared to be trying to downplay concerns over Biden’s mental health. Critics have long accused Biden of suffering from decline. Many Americans appear to agree, based on the many times Biden has appeared confused, weak, and tired.
But all of the Democrats’ efforts to apparently hide Biden’s problems have seemingly failed. Biden himself showed the world that he is far from being “fit.” Voters will have to decide if they want to keep this man in office.
But they might not have a choice, should things get worse. Already, there are rumblings of using the 25th Amendment to remove Biden from office. And with the media turning on him, Biden might not have many allies to protect him.
- Mainstream media outlets criticized Biden’s botched press conference this week.
- The presser was supposed to defend Biden from claims of his declining memory.
- One outlet said Biden appeared to be an “elderly, irritable man.”
