NYT: Biden’s Mental Lapses ‘Are Increasingly Common’

The Trump Team shared the following. 

A shocking report from The New York Times published Tuesday paints a dire picture of Joe Biden’s “increasingly” deteriorating mental condition according to staff, advisers and foreign officials who have spent time with him over the last few months:

  • “Mr. Biden was drained enough from the back-to-back trips to Europe that his team cut his planned debate preparation by two days so he could rest at his house in Rehoboth Beach, Del., before joining advisers at Camp David for rehearsals. The preparations, which took place over six days, never started before 11 a.m. and Mr. Biden was given time for an afternoon nap each day, according to a person familiar with the process.”

 

  • “On June 10, he appeared to freeze up at an early celebration of the Juneteenth holiday. On June 18, his soft-spoken tone and brief struggle to summon the name of his homeland security secretary at an immigration event unnerved some of his allies at the event, who traded alarmed looks and later described themselves as ‘shaken up,’ as one put it. Mr. Biden recovered, and named Alejandro N. Mayorkas.”

 

  • “A senior European official who was present said that there had been a noticeable decline in Mr. Biden’s physical state since the previous fall and that the Europeans had been ‘shocked’ by what they saw. The president at times appeared ‘out of it,’ the official said, and it was difficult to engage him in conversation while he was walking.”

 

  • “Ms. Meloni and the other leaders were acutely sensitive to Mr. Biden’s physical condition, discussing it privately among themselves, and they tried to avoid embarrassing him by slowing their own pace while walking with the president. When they worried that he did not seem poised and cameras were around, they closed ranks around him physically to shield him while he collected himself, the official said.”

 

  • “Asked if one could imagine putting Mr. Biden into the same room with President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia today, a former U.S. official who had helped prepare for the trip went silent for a while, then said, ‘I just don’t know.’ A former senior European official answered the same question by saying flatly, ‘No.’”
