Although top Democrats are calling speculation about President Joe Biden’s mental capacity “much ado about nothing,” other reports seem to paint a different picture.
Fox News reports that Biden is exhibiting “spotty memory when it comes to names and details:”
On Monday, the president appeared to forget Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s name during a White House event, calling the Pentagon chief “the guy who runs that outfit over there.”
“And I want to thank the sec — the, the, ah former general. I keep calling him general, but my, my — the guy who runs that outfit over there,” Biden said.
In December, Biden announced his pick to lead Health and Human Services, Xavier Becerra, but introduced him with the wrong name and title. “For Secretary of Health and Education Services, I nominate Xavier Bacheria,” Biden had said while reading from the teleprompter. A moment later, Biden correctly pronounced Becerra’s last name.
Biden is the oldest person to be President of the United States at 78 years of age.
