Biden’s gaffes keep getting worse.
These “Freudian slips” appear to be occurring more frequently in recent weeks, even attracting global attention. A psychiatrist appearing on television in Australia gave his assessment of Biden, claiming he’s showing symptoms of dementia and is “just holding on.”
Fox News’ Brit Hume Fox News’ Brit Hume said Americans must find it “alarming” to see Biden’s “signs of senility.”
During a speech in Pennsylvania, Biden confused former Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump.
While speaking about the 2009 recession, Biden said, “Back in 2009, during the so-called ‘Great Recession,’ the President asked me to be in charge of managing that piece – then-President Trump – excuse me, Freudian slip…”
Biden continued, “That was the last president,” in reference to mistaking Obama for Trump.
Biden added, “He caused–anyway… President Obama when I was Vice President.”
Although Biden suggests this was merely a Freudian slip, speculation appears to be growing that Biden is suffering from a more serious mental decline or dementia.
TRENDING 👇 Biden Brutally Mocked Over ’18-Wheeler’ Claim
Biden is being brutally mocked on social media.
Biden, who has been a career politician, claimed that he used to drive an 18-wheeler truck. The White House is scrambling to his defense and was only “able to show he was once a passenger in one,” NY Post reports.
Biden is a 48-year political veteran. The 18-wheeler claim was made while Biden visited a Mack Truck facility in Pennsylvania. Biden, who is 78 years old, said, “I used to drive an 18-wheeler, man.” Apparently, Biden then clarified that he “got to” drive one before. NY Post writes:
But challenged by Fox News to produce evidence, a White House spokesperson could only point to a December 1973 article from the Wilmington Evening Journal that showed Biden rode in an 18-wheeler, not that he drove one.
“There is zero evidence that Biden ‘used to drive an 18 wheeler,’” tweeted the Republican National Committee’s Zach Parkinson, along with images of the Wilmington paper’s story about Biden’s 536-mile ride… “The extent of Biden’s trucking experience is that he **rode in** a truck once, for one night in 1973,” Parkinson wrote… “(He made sure to return home by plane though),” he added, highlighting that part of the story… “Truck driver, coal miner, it’s all just nonsense Biden makes up because he thinks reporters won’t call him on it,” Parkinson claimed.
When Fox News again pressed the White House that riding in a truck is not the same as being behind the wheel, a spokesperson pointed to a United Federation of Teachers post that said Biden drove a school bus in the past as a summer job, the outlet said.
But most school buses have at most six wheels — a third of the president’s claim, Fox noted.
