‘End of message’: Biden’s remark at Dole memorial sparks new cognitive concerns

President Joe Biden’s confusing behavior and remarks have fueled speculation throughout his term in office that he is mentally unfit for the job.

One such awkward moment occurred this week during a eulogy for former Sen. Bob Dole (R-KS).

“At the end of the day”

The president has gained a reputation for relying on prepared remarks and has been accused of reading aloud the parenthetical instructions.

During Thursday’s remarks about his one-time Senate colleague, Biden attempted to strike a unifying message, stating: “Our nation has certainly faced periods of division. But at the end of the day, we have always found ways to come together.”

His efforts to advance an uplifting narrative fell flat, however, with a clunky conclusion.

“And then the message said, end of message,” the president declared, carrying on without acknowledging any error in his recitation, as Breitbart reported.

Of course, this is far from the first time Biden has been called out for apparent cognitive lapses and mental freezes that have left critics on both sides of the aisle concerned about his ability to serve as commander in chief. He has not helped matters with repeated insinuations that his handlers effectively tell him what to say and when to say it.

Compounding concerns

Nevertheless, White House insiders and mainstream media outlets have generally dismissed any suggestions that Biden should undergo cognitive testing.

Reports indicate his recent physical examination did not include such a test, though his physician described him as “vigorous” and healthy enough to carry out his duties.

Despite the best efforts of his allies in the media and the Democratic Party, Biden’s seemingly feeble condition continues to worry many Americans. Meanwhile, his popularity continues to plummet, as evidenced by most major polls conducted in recent months.

A related debate has led to speculation that he will not seek re-election in 2024 despite his recent assurances that he plans to do so. Compounding concerns about cognitive decline is the fact that he will be 82 at the time of the next presidential election.

Perhaps more troubling for Democrats are surveys that show former President Donald Trump outperforming Biden in mock match-ups across swing states that proved vital in deciding the 2020 race.
