ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos made bold statements concerning the mental acuity of President Joe Biden.
Stephanopoulos said that he thinks the majority of Americans “question the president’s mental capacity.”
Stephanopoulos noted in an interview with White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki that according to a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll, 54% of Americans do not believe President Joe Biden is mentally sharp.
Stephanopoulos said, “The president is approaching his State of the Union in a pretty difficult political position right now, 37% approval rating, Democrats trailing badly in the midterm polling. A majority in our recent poll out this morning even question the president’s mental capacity. How is he going to turn that around on Tuesday night? And how much has his State of the Union been changed by this war in Ukraine?”
Psaki answered, “You know, George, from covering State of the Unions for some time, that it is about delivering a message to the public at a moment in time. And if you look back when President Obama gave his first State of the Union, it was during the worst financial crisis in a generation.
“When President Bush gave his first State of the Union,” Psaki continued, “it was shortly after 9/11.”
“Leaders lead during crises,” Psaki added. “That’s exactly what President Biden is doing. He’ll speak to that, but he’s also going to speak about his optimism about what’s ahead and what we all have to look forward to.”
