Biden’s Cognitive Decline Is Becoming More Obvious

Remember how, after Joe Biden's State of the Union address, Democrats flocked to the TV cameras to declare him fit for office because he didn't croak? The media also joined in to push the narrative of how Joe Biden's "fiery" State of the Union address proved he's energetic and capable of handling the presidency, and effectively took the issue of his age and mental health off the table in the 2024 election.

Since then, it's been a downward spiral. Biden's usual blank expression and trademark glitches were on full display the next day during a campaign speech in Philadelphia, Pa., during what was essentially a recycled version of his State of the Union address. At one point, he boldly proclaimed, "Pennsylvania, I have a message for you: send me to Congress!" Even when discussing his pet topic, the Capitol riot, Biden fumbled badly, mistakenly citing the date as "July the 6th."

In an interview with MSNBC, he stumbled when questioned about various topics. "America made a mistake. We went after bin Laden 'til we got him, but we shouldn't have gone into Ukraine," he said. If you're confused, you're not alone. The following day, at a virtual campaign event, he visibly struggled to read from a teleprompter, leading to awkward pauses and missteps in his speech. 

And it's not gotten better.

Biden is currently campaigning in Pennsylvania, and on Wednesday, while leaving Scranton for Pittsburgh, he told a bizarre story about his uncle, Lt. Ambrose Finnegan Jr.

“He got shot down in an area where there were a lot of cannibals at the time,” he said. “They never recovered his body, but the government went back when I went down there, and they checked and found some parts of the plane.”

The entire story is a fabrication.

After arriving in Pittsburgh for a speech on steel tariffs, the 81-year-old president told the same story.

“He got shot down in New Guinea and they never found the body because there used to be — there were a lot of cannibals, for real, in that part of New Guinea,” Biden told United Steelworkers union members.

The Pentagon’s Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency says that Finnegan’s plane actually was lost over the open ocean on May 14, 1944.

“For unknown reasons, this plane was forced to ditch in the ocean off the north coast of New Guinea. Both engines failed at low altitude, and the aircraft’s nose hit the water hard,” the military’s account says.

“Three men failed to emerge from the sinking wreck and were lost in the crash. One crew member survived and was rescued by a passing barge. An aerial search the next day found no trace of the missing aircraft or the lost crew members.”

Is Biden just making things up? Was it a deliberate lie, or was he confused? What's going on?

But that's hardly the weirdest thing he's done this week.

A day earlier, a hoarse Biden told another bizarre and frankly incoherent story about answering his motel room door in just a towel and shaving cream.

There's no way to properly describe it, so just watch it:

And then he went on a confused rant about he's up in the polls.

Does he look well? Does he sound well? Is this because he had to cut his millionth vacation over the weekend short?

But hey, he really nailed that State of the Union address, right? Sure, he may have been drugged, but why does that matter?
