Concerns about Biden’s mental health increase after he stumbles over defense secretary’s name

Since well before his inauguration, President Joe Biden has faced mounting speculation regarding apparent signs of cognitive decline and concerns that he was unfit to hold the office.

Those worries grew more pronounced this week after the president stumbled over an introduction of Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin.

“I keep calling him general”

As Fox News reported, the incident occurred on Monday as Biden announced his nomination of two female generals to lead combatant commands.

In reference to Austin, he said: “And I want to thank the sec — the, the, ah former general. I keep calling him general, but my, my — the guy who runs that outfit over there.”

Of course, Biden has been open about his lifelong struggle with stuttering, and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC) blamed the recent gaffe on the president’s speech impediment.

Fox News Channel host Neil Cavuto pressed Clyburn on the subject this week, asking if the incident was “something we should be worried about or much ado about nothing.”

“Doesn’t affect his brain at all”

The South Carolina Democrat, whose endorsement was widely seen as the move that secured the Democratic presidential nomination for Biden, brushed off the recent performance.

“I think you know as well as I do, I talked with the president about this, he has what we call stuttering,” Clyburn said. “It’s always been a problem with this president.”

Biden’s struggle with speech, he said, “doesn’t affect his brain at all,” adding that he does not “know why we keep trying to make something out of it.”

Still no solo press conferences

While it is true that the president has frequently discussed the issue that dates back to his childhood, critics say some of his recent comments cannot be explained by stuttering.

At various points during the presidential campaign, Biden told voters that he was running for the Senate, confused his wife with his sister, and spoke of returning to Vermont when he was in fact at a New Hampshire event.

Along with his reluctance to hold a solo press conference during his first 50 days in office, speculation regarding his cognitive abilities does not appear to be dying down anytime soon.

  1. Biden needs a cognitive test now! It will prove what we all know about his mental decline. This is not a simple stuttering. And if he had stuttering as a child he should have gotten treatment for it then. Where were his parents that he didn’t?

    1. anybody that did not know this man was mentally unfit to be president before the election is just plain stupid.

      you dumb democrats and liberals committed voter fraud to put this empty shell in as president. The next 5 years of garbage is your fruad.

      If you are smart enough to vote straight republican it will take them a year to clean up the mess you have made.

      Good job you moronic liberal/democrats.

  2. The left will say anything to protect this illegitimate President. Lies and coverups will be the norm for as long as these sleazball dems are in the majority.

  4. Biden appears to have significant cognitive problems–confusion, word finding problems, and memory problems. Why do we hear nothing from Biden’s neurologist or from any other neurologist in America who has seen Biden on TV? This is very scary for many people especially since no physicians are discussing this.

  5. Why would any doctor be asked to check out Biden? The dems are waiting till the right time to pull an article 25 on him. Can’t do it to soon, that wouldn’t be right. We have to let this country go down so far will never get out. So we can thank thee dems for hiding the fact something is seriously wrong with biden.

  6. I’m nearly 77 and I’ve been known to forget the names of People I went to Grade School, Junior High School, High School, College and 35 Years of Working at Various Jobs!!

    But I Recognize almost all of their Faces and Voices even after 65 years!! And l Remember their Parents,
    Siblings and Friends too!!

    Ronald Reagan was Diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease during the last Two Years of his Presidency and his Wife and Staff Covered it Up from the Citizens of the United States!!

  7. Biden shouldn’t have ever been elected as the president of this country. His mental health is so bad. He can’t really remember anything.

  8. We are witnessing the death of the greatest country that ever existed and I do not think it is a demise that would have occurred at this time without the Demonrats being the catalyst that caused it. People that hated President Trump so much and wanted to rule our country to perpetuity are responsible for all that has happened and will happen from now forward. What we have all witnessed is the destructive power of hate the most base emotion of humankind

  9. The longer the democrats deny that Biden is unable to function as President the more dangerous it is for the United States!

    1. They know he is not functional, that is what they are counting on. He only does what they tell him. And Kamala Harris is set to move right into the Presidency as soon as they can complete what ever means they have to remove Biden. These people are EVIL and have NO care or concern for anyone but themselves. Once Harris is in the Presidency you will see all “HELL” break loose in America and do not think she cares about We The People, all she wants is President in front of her name and the perks that come with it. They are ALL EVIL, controlled by Satan!!! Please PRAY daily for all Americans and our great nation!

      1. So True! This has been the plan all along. They illegally got a demented old man in the White House knowing full well he wasn’t fit to hold office.Next step will be for him to step down and Harris will take over.May God help us all!!

  10. After reading all of the comments here, I can tell you that what we need is that all conservatives to PRAY DAILY, that God will step in and deliver us from Joe Biden and the evil freaks that brought this on us. Our Almighty God will step in and remove Biden!! Our loving God will hear our prayers and remove Biden and return “Gods man” President Trump back into our White House. However, we will have to pray daily, not just a thought here and there, we must set a time, maybe 30 minutes, daily and talk with God. HE wants a serious conversation with us. Once this is established HE will remove Biden and put him back in his basement where he belongs. And then our President Trump will be back in our White House where he belongs. I keep hearing over and over from our Creator that HE wants to talk with us on a personal level, not just a quick “Forgive me” and then HE is forgotten again. He said, “30 minutes is a very short time, compared to Biden for 8 more years”! I could not agree more, please take 30 minutes of your day and talk with HIM and make sure you stop talking and listen for HIM to talk to you!!! When you are driving to work, shopping or on your way back or even taking a shower, what else do you have to do at those times? Ask HIM to please remove Biden and return “HIS man” Donald Trump back to us!!!

    1. Amen, sister!!! I totally agree 100% God is waiting for us to talk to Him and listen to Him by reading His Word daily🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

  11. JB took the Oval Office with false pretenses….He NEVER told the truth about his mental and health issues……….All those DEMS/RINOS must have know the truth about JB, as looking back over stories from the Barry days, his mental attitude was very low……….DEMS/RINOS will do anything to seize the Oval Office, and make the lives of LEGAL CITIZENS miserable………

    1. We can’t blame Joe Biden or his handlers for this debacle! We can only blame all of those people who voted for him and Kamala. I am so sorry to see this happening to this great nation, but I think we have brought it on ourselves by being too complacent about who has been teaching in our schools, running our cities, counties and states and just making excuses because we have been enjoying being so comfortable in our way of life. Now we must really blame ourselves.

  12. As someone who has a stutter problem that’s a load of BS, the man is not right and should not be in the position he is his wife should be prosacuted for elder abuse.

  13. Why the concern over Joe Biden’s mental health ? At best Joe was an idiot but since the auto accident that killed his first wife and nearly killed him forcing Dr’s to remove the damaged brain in order to preserve his life , Joe hasn’t had anything mental left to be concerned about .

  14. How can a person with this type of dementia run this country ??? The “behind the scene” shakers and movers are doing their best to ruin this country as quickly as they can !!! Are true Americans going to put up with this ??? What’s it going to take to get this country back on the tried and true track of what the US is about ???
