Biden makes complete fool of himself in defense of his memory, mixes up two presidents!


As if the multiple moments of mental confusion over the past week were not enough to concern Americans about President Joe Biden’s health, he presented another opportunity on Thursday.

Biden once again confused the names of political leaders during an address to the nation from the White House. What made this instance all the more ironic was the fact that the 81-year-old commander-in-chief had just asserted his memory was “fine.”

The president defended his mental abilities during a rare moment of taking questions from reporters after his brief address Thursday. This followed the release of special counsel Robert Hur’s report about the president’s handling of classified documents. Naturally, the president did not take direct responsibility for the mishandling of the classified materials as he threw his staff under the bus.

“I take responsibility for not having seen exactly what my staff was doing…things that appeared in my garage, that came out of my home, were moved not by me but my staff,” he said during the briefing which took a brutal turn as reporters peppered him with questions about his mental acuity.

But no sooner had he insisted he was mentally fit than he called Egyptian President Abdel Fatah El-Sisi the “president of Mexico.”

“As you know, initially, the president of Mexico Sisi [sic] did not want to open up the gate to allow humanitarian material to get in [to Gaza]. I talked to him. I convinced him to open the gate,” Biden said.

White House deputy press secretary Andrew Bates pointed a post from The Atlantic staff writer Yair Rosenberg when asked for comment from Fox News Digital.

“Biden has gaffed names his entire career. In 2008, he introduced his running mate as ‘the next president of the United States, Barack America.’ He was clearly talking about Egypt, named Sisi, and laid out his policy and the broader issues in detail. Twitter just isn’t interested,” Rosenberg wrote in a caption to a post on X that included a video of House Speaker Mike Johnson mixing up Israel and Iran on Sunday.

Biden’s gaffe came days after he had already told a Las Vegas audience that he’d spoken with former French President Francois Mitterrand, who died three decades ago. On Wednesday, he retold the story but this time, referred to the wrong German chancellor in his recounting of the first G7 summit he attended as president.

But Thursday’s mental hiccup only seemed to provide more evidence of Biden’s declining mental fitness and the terrible optics left many wondering how his staff even thought his appearance before reporters was a good idea.
