The Democrats certainly understood that electing Joe Biden to the White House would force them into the position of constantly defending that decision, and that position became all that much harder to stick with this week.
That’s because the septuagenarian President appeared to have completely lost his mind during a recent speaking appearance.
President Joe Biden struggled to read his speech Friday as he botched the names of Democrat members of Congress and asked, “What am I doing here?”
Biden was in Houston to visit the area affected by last week’s deep freeze and appeared to have trouble reading his speech […]
“Representatives, uh, Sheryl— Shirley Jackson Lee,” Biden said, flubbing the name of Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX).
He continued, “Al Green, Sylvia Garcia, Lizzie Pinneli— excuse me, Pinell, and, uh, what am I doing here?” before looking down at the podium.
“I’m going to lose track here, and, uh, um— Mayor [Sylvester] Turner, Judge [Lina] Hidalgo, uh, thank you all for welcoming us,” Biden said.
Biden also had to be reminded to retrieve his face mask by Vice President Kamala Harris earlier this week.
Biden’s brushes with absurdity are nothing new: While serving as Vice President to Barack Obama, Biden quickly became known as the gaffe guy, on account of his numerous and embarrassing verbal slip-ups.
