Joe Biden’s mental decline is on full display for the entire world to see. On Friday, a clearly confused Biden announced that he would be holding a “major news conference”. This left journalists scrambling to understand what he meant.
Biden to the press: “I’m doing a major press conference this afternoon, so I love you all, but I’d like to ask you to leave.”

The White House has made it a habit to try to remove the press from the room in order to prevent Biden from answering any questions. Karine Jean-Pierre is the White House press secretary and she often mentions that Biden likes to take abbreviated press questions as he walks in and out of the White House. But this claim is misleading.
Biden is in charge when he approaches reporters at the White House behind a rope. He can walk away or scoff at a question at any time. He can also avoid follow-up questions. It’s not the same as him standing at a podium, answering questions that he cannot escape. There is a reason why Biden does not do many press conferences unless they are heavily scripted. He isn’t capable of thinking clearly.
When he announced that he would be holding a “major press conference”, the members of the media were, quite rightly, dumbfounded. What was he saying? Was there a meeting that they didn’t know about? They should start planning their inquiries.
It turns out that it was Biden acting senile once again.
At ease. The president was referring to his MSNBC interview tonight when he said he was delivering a “major” press conference this afternoon, per 2 ppl familiar.

The Times reporter declares that the President of the United States is “at ease” as if this was normal. He says it like it’s completely normal to think that a press conference and an interview for a far-left publication are the same things. Media-wise, these two things are utterly different, but I suppose to Biden it is all the same.
We don’t even have a media corps to point out how absurd it is that Biden confused an MSNBC interview for a major news conference. Instead, White House correspondents such as Katie Rogers act like everything is fine. The president’s mental health is deteriorating, but he remains “at ease,” as if it were no big deal.
I am still perplexed by the idea that Biden will be able to run for re-election in 2024 with this kind of condition. He makes gaffes at every public appearance. It’s impossible to rely on him to read the teleprompter anymore. It’s almost a certainty that his mind will go haywire every time he appears in front of cameras.
It is pathetic that there’s no press coverage of this issue because it’s important. It’s important to know how a president will be perceived by the rest of the world. It doesn’t necessarily mean that other countries will like you. But they must respect you. Biden is not respected in his present state. What terror does he instill into the hearts and minds of tyrants? The situation is so bad, that even the French are dumping the United States.
