Critics of President Joe Biden have long pointed to evidence that he is suffering from cognitive decline, such as an incident in November that saw him confuse Cambodia with Colombia.
Yet in a bizarre moment this week, Biden alleged that his Republican opponents are suffering from fiscal dementia.
"These guys are the fiscally demented"
According to The Hill, Biden made that claim during a speech given on Martin Luther King Jr. Day to Al Sharpton's National Action Network (NAN).
"They’re gonna talk about big-spending Democrats again. Guess what? I reduced the deficit last year $350 billion," he declared.
"This year, federal deficit is down $1 trillion-plus," Biden asserted. "That’s a fact. And there’s gonna be hundreds of billions reduced over the next decade."
"But so what? These guys are the fiscally demented, I think. They don’t quite get it," the president said of Republicans.
