This Independence Day weekend President Joe Biden was caught on camera in an uncomfortable exchange with a reporter. The embarrassing incident occurred on Saturday as the President tried to speak with reporters about the recent cyber hacks and Russia while also checking out with the cashier at a local store in Central Lake, Michigan.
Biden couldn’t seem to answer the question without fumbling for note cards from his jacket pocket.
The Daily Mail reported: ‘With the most recent hack by the Russians, would you say that this means –’ a reporter began asking, as Joe Biden awkwardly fumbled with notes in his suit jacket pocket to answer a question on something he was briefed on just moments before. The 78-year-old Mr. Biden, however, cut off the reporter, saying U.S. intelligence is not sure if the hack came from the Kremlin.
The Daily Mail added:
‘We’re not sure it’s the Russians,’ he said. ‘I got a brief when I was on the plane. That’s why I was late getting off the plane.’ ‘I’ll be in better shape to talk to you about it –’ Biden started, then cut himself off.
He then proceeded to awkwardly fumble with the notes in his pocket as he attempted to answer the reporter’s question while checking out with the cashier, who asked him to no answer, ‘Would you like a receipt?’
‘I’ll tell you what they sent me,’ Biden said, while looking at the paper he pulled from his pocket, not answering the cashier’s question.
‘The idea – first of all we’re not sure who it is for certain, number one. And what I did, I directed the full resources of the government to assist in a response if we determine – what else you need?’ Biden said, redirecting his attention to the cashier.
‘I directed the intelligence community to give me a deep dive on what’s happened. I’ll know better tomorrow,’ he said in continuing his response before putting the paper back in his pocket.
This strange Interaction comes as Rep. Ronny Jackson, GW Bush, Obama and Trump’s former White House doctor, demands Biden take a test measuring cognitive fitness, which I reported earlier.
Trump took the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) to test for memory impairment, dementia, and other possible infirmities, administered by Jackson in 2018. Trump passed with high marks. Biden’s cognitive state has been questioned in light of a series of verbal gaffes throughout his campaign and presidency, which are only appearing to get worse.
‘I think he’s demonstrating every single day that there is something going on,’ Jackson told Fox News on Saturday.
Jackson added: ‘You can go back – there are forty years of tape of this man [Biden] – he’s always made gaffes and stuff but these are different, he’s confused, he’s disoriented,’ the congressman said. ADN
