Joe Biden Is Falling Apart

Joe Biden Gun Control

Many of you have a loved one you are concerned about as they enter old age. For senior citizens, bodies tend to fall apart, it’s just a fact of life. One of these ailments is cognitive decline and memory loss leading to dementia or worse. It’s only natural for some to lose a step and not be on top of their game as the years go by. People have senior moments as they forget simple facts that they remembered with ease at a younger age. These can be counteracted with various means, but sometimes mental acuity never recovers. It breaks your heart to watch it happen.

That is why it is so alarming that President Joe Biden, 80, the oldest commander-in-chief in history, appears to be declining before our eyes. It is a sad thing to witness and if you are a religious person you may want to pray for him as the incidents that show his troubles in public are mounting up during this worrisome trend. You have to feel sorry for him as he has clearly struggled during his presidency.

What Did He Do Now?

The latest incident is alarming. He was presiding over a cute event at the White House on April 27. Biden was visiting with children dressed up as Secret Service agents and in other costumes during Take Your Child to Work day.

One curious kiddo asked the president what country he last traveled to. Biden returned two weeks ago from a triumphant trip to Ireland where he was lauded as a native son who has risen to great heights as an Irish-American. This event should have been etched in his memory due to the outpouring of admiration from the Irish people – but alas – he forgot about it.

“The last country I’ve traveled — I’m trying to think the last one I was in — I, I’ve been to 89 — I’ve met with 89 heads of state so far, so, uh — I’m trying to think. What was the last — Where was the last place I was? It’s hard to keep track. Um, I was —,” he said haltingly. Biden was clearly stuck in mental quicksand, and it took another child to rescue him.

“Ireland!” one kid yelled in reply.

“Yeah, you’re right, Ireland,” Biden said. “That’s where it was. How’d you know that?”

Social Media Erupts

Bless his heart as they say in the south when people feel sorry for someone else. Twitter users said much worse insults, of course. They posted he was cognitively unfit or that the latest incident shows he is not ready for duty. Some laughed it off as another Biden-ism.

Cheater, Cheater

Biden was also caught with a cheat sheet that gave him directions on the first reporter to call on during a rare press conference this week. The card had a question from a Los Angeles Times journalist who appeared to have given the White House a planted query before the questioning from the press started. So, the president was like a student who cheated on an exam. His staff clearly shields him from media oversight and difficult questions. He has given fewer press conferences and sit-down interviews than his predecessors.

It makes one wonder if Biden is up to leading the country now. Moreover, how will he respond to his re-election campaign? It will be a grueling period with non-stop travel and speaking events. Will the American people laugh off his senior moments or hold him to higher standards? He got a pass in 2020 as he ran his campaign from the basement in his house because of the Covid-10 pandemic. Now, he has no excuse for avoiding public appearances.

Approval Ratings Are in the Toilet

Biden’s approval rating just dipped to a new level at 37 percent. This is the lowest of his presidency measured by Gallup. That number is similar to the terrible approval numbers at the end of George W. Bush’s tenure in the White House during his second term after the invasion of Iraq and Hurricane Katrina. Additionally, an overwhelming majority of people, 70 percent in another poll, do not want Biden to run again. Democrats are worried.

No one wants to see a president struggle. Even left-leaning Independents have to admit it is not good for the country to witness the leader of the free world in such a desperate state. Time to get out the worry beads if you are Catholic, as Biden is, and say a Hail Mary for the president’s health. This president needs some divine intervention.
