Joe Biden spoke to the United Nations General Assembly on Wednesday, but the most disturbing part of his day happened afterward. The president took that stage at an event sponsored by The Global Fund, which does work regarding AIDS and other diseases, and things went off the rails. In this case, quite literally.
A video is circulating showing Biden appearing to be completely dazed and confused, fumbling around the stage as his handlers attempt to talk him down. Meanwhile, another man is speaking, trying to thank him for being there while the president appears to have no idea where he is.
To be sure, Biden has done this before. After all, this is the same guy who had to be led away by the Easter Bunny at the White House last Spring. For my money, this is the worst episode yet, though. He legitimately doesn’t seem to understand where he’s at and where he’s supposed to go.
And while some might say this could happen to anybody, I’d contend that stretches credibility. Normal people do not meander around a stage, staring in random directions while someone else is addressing them. Normal people do not have to be guided down by handlers, which is what looks like is happening as he points, seeming to ask where he’s supposed to be. In short, it is not difficult to walk off a stage. That Biden continually makes it so hard is evidence of his senility.
Cue the “fact-checkers” to claim that he was really just “greeting” people, but no one who watches that video with a fair mind would come away thinking that’s what happened. He’s confused, and it’s obvious he’s confused. That he gets confused while someone else is addressing him makes it all the worse as a visual exercise.
This isn’t just a few seconds of a brain fart, either. He shuffles around in different directions for half a minute before the video ends. Perhaps he finally found his way after that?
Biden also appeared to forget where he was during the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II in London on Tuesday, playing with his tongue as cameras scanned the most powerful leaders of the world in the audience:
Things like this take on a special significance when Biden is overseas, appearing on the national stage. The nation’s adversaries see this stuff and they do not fear this man. In fact, if Iran’s recent behavior is any indication, they fully believe they can take advantage of him. There are real consequences to having a president who doesn’t appear to actually be functioning as the president. Hopefully, voters figure that out if Biden is crazy enough to run for re-election.
