In recent weeks, Joe Biden’s sharp cognitive decline appears to worsen.
“The president is not alright,” comments Elizabeth Stauffer at Western Journal.
While the media might think they are hiding Biden’s struggles, the rest of the world is beginning to notice, particularly in Australia.
Sky News Australia host Andrew Bolt spoke with psychiatrist Tanveer Ahmed on his show and discussed Ahmed’s assessment of Biden’s mental health.
Bolt showed viewers a video of Biden losing his train of thought during a public speech.
Bolt explained, “for a lot of the time… there was no real trouble, no real trouble. He was answering fluently — for him. But you couldn’t ignore moments like these for instance.”
Psychiatrist Tanveer Ahmed responded on the show, “You get the feeling he’s almost just hanging on — which can be a feature of dementia.”
He continued, “The other problem with Joe Biden is, you know, it is probably steadily getting worse in the last sort of 12, 18 months and that is a feature of dementia where you’re kind of seeing a steady, gradual decline … I don’t think it’s unreasonable to raise these questions.”
Bolt said, “For the most part, there’s no problem at all, he’s talking fine, then suddenly boom, the memory goes.”
“With early dementia, for instance, are you actually fine, is your judgment still perfectly OK once you get back your train of thought, you know, you recollect, ‘Oh yeah, that’s where I was going?’ Or are you really not quite up to the job?”
A symptom of dementia is “short term recall, losing track of your thoughts” and “confabulating.”
Ahmed explained, “Depends what stage of it is… In terms of trying to take in the complex concepts and taking in large amounts of information which a president would be expected to do, that would be extremely difficult for him.”
“It will become clearer probably in the next 12 to 18 months,” he concluded.
Here are recent clips of Biden forgetting his line of thinking or struggling to answer basic questions:
Full interview of @POTUS “my butt has been wiped” comment.
Why, did not a single reporter, ask…excuse me Mr. President?
Can you clarify what happened to your butt?
Journalism is dead…

Hot Story 🔥 Newsom Sinks to New Low, Compares Unvaccinated Americans To Drunk Drivers
California Governor Gavin Newsom has harsh words for unvaccinated Americans.
“Let’s talk about masks,” a CNN anchor asked Newsom. “LA County brought back their mask mandate regardless of vaccination status.” “I want to put up the growth in cases,” the CNN anchor continued. “I’ve got the six weeks before the indoor mask man date for vaccinated people ended on June 15th. You see the six weeks or so since and there’s this growth in cases. Is it time, governor, to bring back a universal mask mandate regardless of vaccination status there in California?”
Newsom responded, “We don’t even have do have that debate if we can just get everybody vaccinated.” Newsom said, “It’s like drunk drivers. You don’t have to right to go out and drink and driver and put everybody at risk, including your own life at risk. California has one of the highest vaccination rates in America and we’re still seeing an increase because so many people, 25% in California, are refusing to get vaccinated,” Newsom said.
